Myanmar - Bagan Hotels

by MariusG Online Now Nov 3, 2006 at 6:45 AM

Greetings,
I tried to book a hotel in Old Bagan, but all the hotels with good recommendations in my price range - Tharabar Gate, Thiripyitsaya Sakura and Bagan Hotel are fully booked for the dates that I’ll be there; the only vacancies are at Serenity Hotel and I have no info about it.
Any experience with it, anyone?
Thank you,
Marius

    HI Marius,
    I dont know about Serenity. How about Thazin Garden Hotel or Golden Express Hotel? Not as good as the hotels you mentioned above but a few of our guests used to stay long stay at those hotels. I think price range around USD 40 or 45. Let me also check at Tharabar Gate and Bagan Hotel again. Sometimes there're a few reserved rooms left.

    Hi Jules,
    Thank you for your answer. It seems that indeed nobody's heard about Serenity at Bagan. I think that I will change the dates, so I could stay at the better hotels.
    Cheers,
    Marius

    Thazin Garden is in New Bagan. I think it's in the40-60 range. Also in New Bagan is the NK Beetlenut Hotel. It's only15 per night and a great bargain. Huge rooms, comfortable beds, AC, hot water, fast laundry service. The only bad thing is the TV service is poor. New Bagan is a nice area. Not many people stay here and it's very quiet and friendly.

    Had the same problem at first with Tharabar Gate - but got a reservation 3-4 days later via some kind of waiting list.

    Rooms at certain hotels are often reserved by overseas tour operators who place reservations for a maximum number of possible tour participants. If they don't reconfirm approx. 1 month prior, the rooms are available for booking again.

    Since that maximum is usually not reached, it's more likely than not that you can get a room even though they're 'initially fully booked.

    Good luck

    Thank you, nyxxx, this seems to be indeed a good trick. I also made the reservation at Serenity and registered for Tharabar and Thiripyitsaya waiting lists. It puzzles me why I can not find and reviews of this Serenity Hotel, thogh it is offered by almost all major Myanmar travel agents.

    Hi!
    We had a good time at Thande Hotel in OLD Bagan.
    It is facing the river and there are several pagodas around the hotel :-)

    Note: There is also Thande Hotel in New Bagan.
    But I don't know about it.

    Hope this helps
