    Quiet,nice place and great river view.


    I stayed at 3 nights in Bagan Thande Hotel. Survice is good, except reception. The receptionists are no warmly welcome especially for local people. Room facilities are great depends on the price.Bagan Thande 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.Very nice and quite place.

    Unique Quality: Ayeyawaddy river & sunset panoramic view is gifted not creative for Bagan Thande Hotel and very short distance from most of the sightseeing points.Thande Hotel is located right on the eastern bank of the Ayeyarwaddy River giving it a nice location. The original twostorey building was built in 1922 for the Prince of Wales when he visited Bagan. Many of the major temples are within walking distance. All buildings are chalet-type bungalows that are situated amidst a scenic garden.
    Can enjoy Thande meals, European, Chinese & Myanmar cuisine at breakfast, lunch & dinner time, quality food produce by well trained cooks.

    Will serve by capable serving staff at the river side Acacia shade restaurant and at Restaurant 1922.

    Non-stop entertainment of live playing Myanmar classical music & songs and puppet show played by well experienced artistes at dinner time, sunset till late.

    Nice grounds and wonderful river view


    Bagan Thande Hotel is situated inside Bagan Archaeological Zone, 10km from the airport on the bank of Ayarwaddy River, walking distance from several well known Buddhist monuments. The hotel offers bungalow style superior guestrooms some more expensive deluxe or studio ones with good Ayeyarwaddy River views. The superior double with garden view that we booked was not extraordinary in facilities or style inside but what counts for this hotel is grounds which are lovely and its location which is great. There is swimming pool surrounded by greenery, in addition to close by pagodas, which adds to its charm. The service at this hotel is very friendly and efficient. The price came at 39$ through Mynamartourex travel agency (with buffet breakfast facing the river!!). For its location and grounds I would strongly recommend it to others.

  • Chalet at Bagan


    Bagan Thande is one of the handful hotels in old bagan. Rather different from the rest, this one is in chalet style. One of the enjoyable things i have is to have breakfast beside the river, and enjoy the mountain scenary across the river... And at nite, can get to see the stars with the ruined temples beneath.. gosh..

    Nice accomodation on the Irrawaddy


    Pleasant staff, very comfortable rooms even if a bit old . Nicely situated in Old Bagan, walking distance to many stupas and on the banks of the Irrawaddy river.

    Unique Quality: In terms of Bagan, there's not much facilities to talk about but it's nicely priced and good location.

Bagan's Paradise

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.

Bagan Hotel

by gabriellefox about Thande Hotel - Bagan

This is a popular hotel in Bagan, with an unrivalled location. The deluxe river view bungalows are best, as from the adjacent terrace you have a perfect view of the sun setting over the Irrawaddy . The restaurant serves good food and has a nightly traditional puppet show. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens and if the weather is good, breakfast is served in the garden. The recent addition of a swimming pool has ensured that this property remains the best choice in town.

Bagan Thande Hotel & Hot Air Balloon trip

by AyurinHiro

"Bagan Thande Hotel"

I love this hotel.
Our room is in front of the Ayeyarwaddy river.

And, this hotel is near pagodas,too.
You see a pagoda behind the rooms in this photo!

This is one of the pagodas near Bagan Thande Hotel.

This is the hotel restaurant.

The pool of Bagan Thande Hotel.
Here, you can see some small pagodas.

"Hot Air Balloon trip in the morning"

Very early in the morning (around 5:00am) we left our hotel and got on a hot air balloon!

It was more stable than we imagined... so we were not scared at all.

This is the scenery from the balloon.
We flied quite high!

We saw the other ballon over there.

Accommodation Help

by alan51

I'm seeking suggesstions for good clean and comfy hotels in Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and at Inle Lake that would be good for a couple in their 50's and at about the $30-40 bracket. We hope to spend about four nights at each location and like to walk to nearby attractions, cafes, markets etc.

Here are the recommended hotels within your range.
Yangon : Panorama Hotel ( city center )
Bagan : Thande Hotel, Golden Express Hotel ( both are in the archaeological zone, GE is closer to Nyaung U )
Mandalay : Mandalay City Hotel
Inle : Inle Resort, Sky Lake Resort, Paramount Resort ( all are in the lake )
Amazing Nyaung Shwe, Paradise Hotel ( Nyaung Shwe, On shore )

Re: Accommodation Help

Do keep in mind that not all attractions are necessarily within walking distance. But taxis are relatively cheap (though some can be really in bad shape). And once you've left Yangon, there are bicycles (Bagan and Mandalay especially), boat (Inle) to get you around.

I can only speak about the places I stayed when I was htere a few years ago, snd Iwas almost 50 at the time! All are within your price range, and I was satisfied with them.

In Rangoon, the Motherland 2.

Bagan, the Aung Mingalar in Nyaung-U, friendly staff there and very relaxing bungalow style accomodation.

Mandalay, the Royal Guest House. I also stayed at the Unity but ofund it overpriced for what it was so avoid that.

To visit Inle Lake, I stayed in Nyaungshwe as the lakeside resorts tend to be pretty expensive, and I liked the Teakwood Guesthouse, although the owner can be a little pushy about trying to sell trips etc. The accomodation itself was spot on, though.

I have more details on all these places on my relevant pages.

Hope this assists,

Inle Lake: I like Golden Island Cottage 2 - with bungalows on stilts right on the lake. It's at the high end of your budget, but it's definitely a unique experience. I stayed for only a night, but I would stay for another night if i could.

Re: Accommodation Help

A hotel i love in Yangon is the Okinawa. Small (6 rooms) and cheaper than you want to spend but a very nice little place almost next to Sule Pagoda. Another that is nice Beauty Land 2 (around $30 for nice big room) which is walking distance from Shwedagon and across the road from Kandawgy Lake

The Panorama (in Yangon)has a great breakfast (asian style). If you decide to go there, make sure you have a room on one of the top floors. The lower floors have quite a bit of street noise.

In Mandalay i agree that the Royal is very good (or used to be at least...(haven't been to Mandalay in a while).
