Thande Hotel Bagan
HISTORY, ROMANCE AND NATURE
The hotel began as a two storey building built in 1922 for a visit from the then Prince of Wales. He later became King Edward VIII and abdicated in 1936. The original building is now 2 luxury suites and is the only colonial era building in Ancient Bagan City. I booked this hotel because of this connection and the great reviews. Arriving was amazing. The taxi drove past several ancient pagodas and into beautiful tropical gardens. The room was small, but very comfortable and even had its own porch and chairs to sit outside and enjoy the gardens. The swimming pool was surrounded by tropical plans and more ancient pagodas. The restaurant sits right on the Ayeyawaddy River and offered good breakfast buffets and amazing river views every day. This hotel is excellent. It’s a long walk to any restaurants, but that is the only drawback. It is beautiful, historic, and the staff are very friendly. The hotel is in natural gardens and we even had a resident owl when I stayed here. An excellent choice.
The hotel is MUCH cheaper if you book direct with them – but you must do this well in advance. They keep rooms reserved for sales through AGODA.com and the prices are a lot higher if you end up using them.

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.
Great and romantic hotel with wonderful nature and view , with squirrels and singing birds , with clean and cosy rooms.
Directions: Old Bagan
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.
