Mystical Myanmar (2014): Accommodations

Here is the compilation of all the accommodations my friends and I stayed throughout our trip in Myanmar including Bagan, Inle Lake and Yangon.

Thiri Marlar Hotel, Bagan (Currently known as Thurizza Hotel)

Bagan - Thiri Marlar 01

Among all the three hotels we stayed, this is our favourite one. I couldn't remember how I came across this hotel, either recommended by a blogger or my friend but this hotel also featured in Lonely Planet. 

Bagan - Thiri Marlar 02

With the cozy and inviting rooms which exceeded our expectations, top notch services and most importantly, friendly to our pocket, this is absolutely great value hotel. Situated in New Bagan, this hotel consists of 15 spotless rooms which each and every room features beautifully decorated tiled private bathrooms, LCD television, air-conditioned and free WiFi connection. 

Bagan - Thiri Marlar 03
Complimentary of free breakfast served on top of the roof

Bagan - Thiri Marlar 06
Bicycles and motorbikes are available for rent

Room Rate: US$50 per night for room with queen or twin bed and US$75 for triple room

Inle Star Motel, Inle Lake

Inle Lake - Inle Star Motel 01

Situated less than 10 minutes away from the bus station, this hotel is facing directly to the boat station.

Inle Lake - Inle Star Motel 03

Inle Lake - Inle Star Motel 02

Simple and basic room attached with private bathroom. Each of the room is equipped with television, fan (without air-conditioned), kettle and drinking waters. One of the rooms assigned to us was overlooking the river, it might seems fascinating to watch how most of these boats passby but in the case where you are light sleeper, you may find it's hardly to fall asleep with all the loud sounds from the motorboats at night.   

Inle Lake - Inle Star Motel 04
Another breakfast on rooftop

Inle Lake - Inle Star Motel 05

Room Rate We Paid: RM230 per night for a standard family room including breakfast (Reservation made through Agoda)

Myint Myat Guest House, Yangon

Yangon Myint Myat Guest House 01

Everything is pretty okay for us - the room itself, clean bathroom, attentive services except for the location. I doubt most of the reviews on Agoda and Tripadvisor lately. I thought this guest house is situated not far away from Boygoke Aung Sang Market but in reality, it was quite distance away that we need to hail for a taxi. 

Yangon Myint Myat Guest House 02

Room Rate We Paid: RM98.50 per night for a superior room including breakfast (Booked via Agoda)


  1. I like that hotel by the tranquil lake! Nice view from breakfast at the top too. I have met up with a good friend recently who has to shuttle work between Kl and Yangdon often. He also gave me some insights and scary tales pula. Looks like I can visit Myanmar and use your travel guide which is better than Lonely Planet!!!

  2. My needs are simple...hotel room must be clean and not too pricey. Really scared of those rooms with roaches. Usually will read customer reviews in TripAdvisor or similar website b4 booking
