We had to stay here for two nights when we were unable to get to Mrauk U in January. The room was comfortable and the bathroom adequate but not always with hot water. If fruit bats were a novelty then they could prove entertaining. Breakfast was only just adequate for western tastes. The stairs would be a problem for anyone with mobility problems, of course. The service was friendly and efficient and it was located very close to the River Valley Restaurant which was excellent, although you may want to avoid seeing the waterfront to really enjoy the seafood! While killing time we were taken to the fish markets which were interesting and a rural village and markets which were quite charming.
There was a high police presence in town and we had an "interesting" encounter with some official looking people after our guide had tried to secure a permit to go to Mrauk U.
