        The receptionists are very kind & helping us all the time we stay here. They accepted us to check in early from 7 a.m after we reached Bagan by night bus from Yangon, serving us tamarind candies and cold, small bottles of water. After that, the staff in reception help us check our itinerary in Bagan, gave us advises where we should come and see, where we can get sunset and sunrise because now all temples in Bagan is prohibited to climbing. Next day after catch sunrise, we back to the hotel to have breakfast here. It’s was ok. We stayed here for 2 days and have nothing to complain about it. The room was clean and comfortable as advertise in Agoda. The big bed is made up of 2 small beds but I think that is the general situation in Burma. Aircon always on even you left the room for traveling. The rental e-bike shop opposite the hotel, many restaurants around here, very convenient. Due to the busy time to explore Bagan, we haven’t used the pool yet, but it looks pretty cool. Highly recommend Arthawka hotel when you traveling in Bagan.

        Fantastic hotel”

        The hotel is great not to far from town (around 5 min. walk). The rooms are great, large & clean. They have a pool which is fantastic to use after a day of visiting temples & pagodas. Breakfast has a wide range to pick from. When I arrived I had previously asked for a quiet end room but unfortunately was put in a room close to the main road, I spoke to the day manager and was moved to a very quiet room towards the back of the property which was fantastic. I have organise all my tours through the hotel and they have all worked out well. The wi-fi works well all throught the hotel. They have a sister hotel in Inle Lake which I stayed at prior to coming to Bagan and again was fantastic (Immana Grand Inle Hotel). I would definately stay here again, value for money you can't get a better deal.

        Outstanding friendly staff, perfect stay, just a lot of mosquitoes in the room”

        The receptionist named "Thum", if I got his name right, gave me hints on where to rent a bicycle and where to go for sunset and sunrise. He also organised a take out breakfast - so I had my own breakfast in silence in the middle of colourful birds with the view over Bagan! He also booked me on the Ayeyarwadi cruise to Mandalay - so nice! The only downside is that I had to kill about 15 mosquitoes in the bathroom (luckily slowly flying ones) before enjoying the room.

        Nice hotel with helpful staff”

        I arrived in Bagan at 4 am in the morning and waited at the bus terminal for an hour in a cold weather. At 5 am, I went to the hotel with the intention to have a rest at the lobby. It is a wonderful surprise when the staff allowed me to have a very early check in so that I can have a good rest in a warm and cozy room. The location is very convenient. Electric bike rental is in front of the hotel. By riding electric, I enjoyed the magnificent Bagan for 3 days. On the last day, we intended to extend the room to 6 pm as I bus is schedule to depart at 9 pm. The staff politely decline our request as the hotel is fully booked.

        Nice hotel but very dusty ”

        We enjoyed the location of the hotel, not far from restaurants and with e-bike rental just across the road. The pool area is nice and the swimming pool is nice. The rooms are basic, and I have to say was quite shocked by the level of cleanliness. Evidently the cleaning staff never move any furniture to clean below. After moving the bed side table to grab a toy that went there I discovered a small mountain of dust, proving that this area was not cleaned for easily a year. Overall cleaning process of the rooms really needs to be reviewed. Also I find the price quite high for what it is but seems to be the case for most hotels of the area during peak season

        Cozy hotel with nice pool area and great service”

        The breakfast buffet was very good, lovely pool area although water too cold, comfortable rooms

        Arthawka Hotel had really good service. We had arrived from Bagan at 5am, and because the rooms were fully booked, they said that we could check in as soon as somebody checks out. We then went and rented e-bikes from the hotel to check out Bagan. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. When we went there seemed to have been big groups of guests staying there on tour or something, but the staff were always plentily available with whatever we needed. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The pool is a nice place to relax after full day of exploring Bagan, although the water was way too cold to swim in, even under the hot midday sun. Overall great experience, and highly recommend it. Bedrooms were very cozy.

        Amazing stay in a amazing place”

        Staff, pool, rooms

        I truly enjoyed my stay here. It's at the start of New Bagan, so a bit out of the way, but only a 5-10 minute walk into New Bagan (which isn't big anyway). I stayed here for 7 nights, rented an e-bike (not from in front the hotel though, there are better ones to get in New Bagan) and then the location is great. Close to some very nice temples and it's easy to drive everywhere. Bagan is one of the most amazing places I've been and this hotel complements this feeling nicely. Get up early for a sunrise, drive around a bit and get back around midday to lounge around the pool a while before getting out again for the sunset. This was basicly my schedule for the whole week :) Very nice to relax at the pool at the hottest times of the day. The rooms are very nice too, get a room around the pool and you can use the poolwifi. Big rooms, with a tv, nice beds and a good bathroom. Special mention to the staff of this hotel. They are extremely friendly and service minded. They even insist of making your toast at breakfast, filling up your tea or coffee and making eggs. Also when sitting around the pool you can see staff cleaning the floors and area multiple times a day. They are truly amazing and very hard working. I will surely go back to Bagan and will be staying here again.

        Helpful staff, good location, great breakfast

        We stayed in Bagan for 3 nights in the Arthawka Hotel. The staff was very helpful. There was a male staff that helped us tremendously when he tried very hard to call our driver while handling other matters. He is a multi-task king. We were really grateful for the staff's help to arrange ride to the Jetty and Old Bagan. The hotel is close to the heritage sites. Rooms have big windows and large bathroom. The breakfast offered many choices and was very tasty. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Bagan.

        Excellent hotel with great staff”

        The Arawathra Hotel is located in New Bagan in a fairly quiet area. When we arrived we were greeted with a cold drink and some local sweets. The entrance foyer is large and looks quite impressive. The rooms are well-maintained with a large bed, flat screen TV with English channels, tea and coffee making facilities, a fridge, safe, and a large clean bathroom. The bed is rather firm but this is typical of most hotels in the region. I was so tired after walking around all day, that I slept very well regardless. The pool is located between the two main wings of the hotel. It is clean, salt water, and warm. It is certainly fantastic to be able to jump into the pool after an exhausting day. The staff at reception, apart from being very efficient, are able to organise everything to make your stay easy. The restaurant does reasonable food, and there are several restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk of the hotel (down the slight hill to the left of the hotel). The staff deserve a special mention. The waiters in the dining room are all quite young, and it appeared that some at least were being trained. All the staff tried their best, and were all very friendly and attentive. Top marks to the restaurant manager for his ongoing training. The front desk staff are excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for these people, who very efficiently organise everything for you. We hired a driver with an air con car and an English speaking guide. It was all done within minutes of arriving. The prices are extremely fair--K35000 for the car for the day or K50000 for a van, and K35000 for a guide. Unless you happen to be an expert in the pagodas and temples of Bagan, having a guide opens up a whole new world, and details that you would easily miss. The young woman at reception was particularly helpful. A big thank you to her. This hotel deserves the positive comments it has received from other reviewers.

        Well priced accomodation with a pool!”

        Well Priced, Good Room beside Salt Water Pool.

        The Arthawka Hotel is well maintained with everything you need for your stay. It was low season when we stayed so possible only 6 or so rooms were occupied. So although you could see that there may normally be a roof top bar, another bar inside, and perhaps bar sevice by the pool (by the looks of the menus) this wasn't really operational during our stay. Understandable with so few guests due to low season. The staff are always freindly, and the rooms are of a nice size and well maintained. The salt water pool was a refreshing way to take a break from the Bagan heat. The hotel is within walking distance to local restaurants in new Bagan district, plus electric bikes are easillly obtained from outside of the hotel. This is the best way for getting around New Bagan , the temples and Pagodas, pus travelling to Old Bagan. As mentioned we stayed during low season so it would be nice to see what this hotel is like in the higher season. As that may be when in comes to life.

        Location, staff performance, cleanliness

        We really enjoyed our stay at Arthawka Hotel. Hotel is located in New Bagan area, very close to all tourist attractions. We were able to check in at 5AM (our bus from Yangon arrived around 4:30AM). Also on the last day they allowed us to stay till 6PM without any extra charges. I would definitely recommend the hotel to everyone.

        Options of where to stay are as follows: very expensive Old Bagan, hippie travellers choices in Nyaung U and mid range in New Bagan. They are really close to each other in terms of ebiking. Arthawka seemed pricey for what they were but it’s a good hotel. Nice pool and staff are friendly like all Burmese people.

        Luxury on a budget”

        We stayed in August 2016 whilst on a fairly budget tour of Myanmar and this hotel was such a luxury for us. The room was spacious and clean and the pool area felt really luxurious. It was great to have somewhere to relax and cool off in the middle of the day. The hotel is in a great location to explore all parts of Bagan as you'll be doing it probably on an electric scooter. It's really easy to walk to the many restaurants in New Bagan from the hotel. There's also a free pick up service for the overnight bus back to Yangon from the front door of the hotel which was a perk we weren't aware of. We really loved staying in this hotel and would definitely recommend it.
