Excellent value for money”

Excellent value for money, walking distance to the North group of the sights in Mrauk-U. A bit noisy when you have a room facing the main road, but still within limits. Wifi is free, but sketchy at times. Breakfast is a bit limited, but also not too bad considering the remote location of Mrauk-U. Why spend four times as much at the Princess if you spend most of your time sightseeing anyway?

recommended and worth it”

The room is a little old, but the room is large and comfortable and room is clean.The breakfast is good and many choices, of course most of it is Myanmar style food, not much western food, but I will say the breakfast is taste good. About the staff, they are not well in English, but they are helpful, friendly and polite, they provide a welcome juice and let us early check-in and no any charge. The hotel is in main road, but not noisy, it is very easy to walk to the downtown and the famous sightseeing. many tourist guide say Moe cherry restaurant is the best one in Mrauk-U,i will say is not true.I highly recommended this hotel restaurant; it is the best restaurant in here. I have lunch and dinner in hotel restaurant for 3days, try over 10 difference Chinese style dishes, and all is tasty. Also the fruit juice is tasty. I highly recommended Shwe Thazin Hotel restaurant. The restaurant has aircon and clean, food is tasty, the price is cheap. They open at 12:00 to14:00 /18:00-21:00.

Stayed for 4 nights in Shwe Thazin Hotel and I really enjoyed it. For me the best located hotel in Mrauk-oo because it's very close to the pagodas. 'Cause of the heat I came back very often to the hotel during the day to rest and was very happy having such a nice big and clean room. Very friendly staff!!!

Great place to stay in a barely developed town ”

The staff, the staff and the staff

Our stay was great. It is very important for visitors to understand that Mrauk U is in the very early stages of opening up as a tourist destination. The infrastructure is barely there. In this context the Shwe Thazin Hotel in Mrauk U is a great place to stay. They have 24 hour electricity and hot water. The staff really want to help you access all there is to see (and there is a lot to see), so they can introduce you to quality guides. I would stay there again.

Helpful manager : attentive staff : good location

Our stay was very pleasant despite the superior room booked was not available! The building was not completed! Alternative accomodation was not to our taste & we were happy to compromise in a "budget" room. This was made up for by the always helpful delightful staff. The situation of the hotel is excellent for the sites at Mrauk U & the ready availability of meals an advantage in this town.

Being somewhat out of the way, Mrauk-U struggles with tourist infrastructure, so the Shwe Thazin does a good job in difficult circumstances. The bed was clean and comfortable, though the bathroom could do with a makeover. There was also no convenient socket for battery recharging - a must these days.

Don't be fooled! What you see is not what you get: Misleading photos of facilities”

I thought I booked what looked like in the photos of a wooden bungalow type room for two people. The deal seemed great after having shopped around the other hotels for the same price. BUT WARNING: DONT BE FOOLED BY THE PHOTOS. They are misleading! Even my confirmation page shows the room I expected to get. What the site doesn't show you is that there is a rundown concrete building far off in the back behind all the nice wooden bungalows that they put you in. The first floor looks like it's still under construction, or stopped construction. They put folks on second floor. Now the room we got was clean and good, but not worth the price I paid. If I actually knew what I was getting, I would have booked somewhere else for the same price. It's too over priced to stay in this concrete building where the first floor is a gross mess, the Internet doesn't work, and you're put way in the back of the grounds. Because in comparing to other hotels around you can get a better ,more lovely room for the same price. I know because I stayed somewhere else the next night and paid the same for a really nice room at mrauk U hotel. Stay there or at Nawarat Hotel. They are right across from each other. Same price but the rooms are nicer so you don't feel like you've been misled by their advertisement, up-charged, and put up in some weird run down building far off in the back of the hotel grounds.

Adequate for Mrauk U”

This hotel was in a good location for exploring the northern quarter of the temples. Unfortunately, we were put into a room with bed bugs and asked to move. Their English and understanding of bed bugs was very limited. They moved us but weren't quite sure why, even after showing them a bed bug. The bathrooms seemed a little dusty. The city itself was dusty so I supposed that is why. Their room service was actually quite fast and on point. The restaurant was cheap and the food was good. The manager was actually quite helpful and the staff very nice. I would recommend Mrauk U for about 2-3 days.

Burmese Palace full of Smiles”

What a lovely stay in the ancient kingdom. Staff here are truly wonderful and very accommodating. We arrived very late after taking the slow boat from Sittwe. Our large spacious castle like room was near the reception so a little noisy. We could change to the new room in the back without a problem. Food at the restaurant was extremely tastey and served almost all day as it was difficult to find other places to eat. Perfect location to walk or ride a bicycle to see the nearby attractions and tapestry venders. River boat trip a highlight. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel.

I do not need any but if there aren't any, dont write you offer them. We had some problems with the manager when we arrived. He told us our room category we had booked was not available, so we shoud pay the difference ( 30$) for the upgrade. As we refused, we got the room we booked. the next day, same problem. As we refused to pay more, we got he upgrade without extra paying. So is it a booking problem or is it a way to sell you the most expensive room? positive:the Hotel is good. It has nice big rooms. the food in the restaurant is well done and tasty. The Staff in the Restaurant and expecially the security person, are really nice! good internet connection.

Large, with high ceilings, interesting wall decoration, ample hanging and shelf space, comfortable beds and perfect pillows. Air conditioning worked a treat. Small balcony to sit on, lovely gardens. Staff were all friendly and helpful, anticipating requests. Laundry was excellent value and was returned the same day beautifully washed and pressed. Wifi ranged from excellent to not working at all.
