Hongta hotel: The 'pride' of Mandalay?
As they present themselves as 'the pride of mandalay '; I must say we were less than impresssed with the Hongta hotel. There are more than enough options to stay in Mandalay. The hotel was dirty, unfriendly staff, disgusting breakfast ... We left the hotel and moved to the Sedona hotel (as there were many vacancies at the Sedona hotel we got a great discount )

hotels on tilts
along lake Inle there are some unique hotels built on tilts. Actually they use same local tradition of Inle houses to build hotels above the lakes water. From your room you can have wonderful view of the lake. To get to the hotel you have to use local boats who will take you and your luggage to the hotel.

All hotels and guesthouses in Burma provide breakfast for their guests. But somehow they've all gotten the idea that this has to be a fried egg and white bread (the sweeter bread). Except for the high-end hotels that of course have breakfast buffets.... Many of those places will also give you coffee mix and some fruit. Some places do serve real coffee.
Anyways, if all those eggs and bread start to get to you... ask for a burmese style breakfast. I do it all the time and the only reaction i've gotten so far is that they seem surprised that you might like it. And i personally prefer a burmese tea over coffee mix (or even coffee sometimes). If you want something very special, they might ask you to pay the price of the food but since that is usually only a few hundred kyats, it is well worth the money. But i've been asked to pay only once so far and i've stayed in many many places. Besides, that was for something rather special and a bit more expensive so it was not so strange.

Eden Motel 2: Began Guest House
Eden Motel 2 is in a good location on the opposite side of street to Eden Motel, in Nyaung U (Bagan), which is where you have to go for breakfast, close to some Markets, Internet Cafes and shops.
The staff here were very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are a good size. But the BIG BIG plus is the rooms at Eden 2 come with a bath. After 10 days of walking walking, Bus trip more walking and travelling overnight sitting up in a train from Mandalay, this was an unbelievable luxury.
I met up with some friends in Began who were staying at a different Guest House, and the conversation went something likre this....FRIENDS "Our G/H has got this and our room has that etc' etc"........ME "i've got a bath".......FRIENDS "can we come over".......i was almighty but i was generous.

Only for westerners
Quite a few hotels/guesthouses in Burma are not open to burmese. They only want westerners. There are a few reasons for this but the most important one is that western tourists pay with dollars. Something they cannot ask from a burmese. They'll claim it has to do with taxes and so on but i've checked this in hotels where burmese can stay and there they tell me that that is not true.
Hotels that will not accept burmese are...
All hotels that are popular with westerners.

I'll post hotel info on all the relevant places so if you need a hotel somewhere, do check the place and see about hotel info there.
In case i haven't any info on a hotel in a place you want to visit or the hotel you plan to stay in isn't mentioned, ask away. I've just started to work on the hotels & for many hotels we stayed in before, i haven't made pictures or collected the relevant info but i know names and such of course.

Sandoway Resort: Ngapali Dream
"Hidden amongst coconut palms and set amidst a landscaped tropical garden Sandoway Resort is designed in traditional south East Asian Style. (...) A perfect place to rest after a tour in the country and an ideal holiday hideaway for anyone looking for tranquility and relaxation"
This is absolutely true! I will always remember the peace this place offered me. A luxurious garden with the sea for lovely partner.
Great service. Marvellous SPA (try a massage and at the end of it they will offer you the traditional green tea and you would feel in heaven).
The beach with almost no one besides yourself. The confort and luxurious details in the rooms and all the exterior area. The views. The sound of the sea. Big and wonderfull pool. Two great restaurants "right on the sand".
A special 5 star to the MEZZANINE!

Adorable hotel "sits on the edge of the Eastern bank of great Ayeyawaddy river and near one of the sacred stupa, Gawdaw-palin and next to Bagan Archaeological Museum."
I've stayed in a Deluxe Room, overlooking the river and the mountains and pagodas - "installed with large glass window with spectacular view (...) Interior decoration and all furnitures are traditional style, 100% teak wood and all are handmade."
A Great experience I absolutely recommend!
The best in the Bagan Old City with great views and relaxing ambience. A bird santuary place. Wonderfull breakfast in the fabulous gardens overlooking the river.

Summit Parkview: Yangoon
Nice hotel to stay out the mess of the city center. Good choice considering quality-price. Spacious rooms and bathrooms. Nice massage center (and also room service massage).
Great base point to visit the wonderfull 'Shwedagon Pagoda' (mine, was a "room with a view").
Big breakfast room and with the chance to take it outside, in the balcoon front to the pool and listening the birds in the garden.
Very good with the internet service (wich stills a problem in Myanmar) and delivering room messages.

Hotels: Excellent values
When you're planning your trip to Myanmar consider seriously upgrading your accommodation choises. Hotels booked through local travel agencies can be excellent value for money.
I booked my accommodation through Myanmartourex travel agency. Room prices in their website were far below from the ones offered from the individual hotels' websites.
The room prices ranged from 29$-48$ per night and all of them were very good choices (if only 1-2 exceptions that were uninspiring)
