Unfortunately this place was my only option. I've stayed there for 2 nights . Rooms are simple and pretty dirty , matrices are foam , but very old and smell. But there is an Air Con , there is no hot water . There is loud music every evening from the restaurant nearby , at the weekend days it runs...

We thought this was going to be the only cheap option in Monywa so went with it. The room is nice by itself, but is dirty, especially the bathroom. The hotel needs a big cleanup if they want to stay in business in a durable way. We left after one night after we found out about a cheaper and significantly...

Well there are not many budget choices in Monywa, we saw even worse places for 30$, so the 20$ big room here was our last chance. Yes the bathroom is horrible, but the beds were clean and quite comfy. What makes me disappointed is the staff's attitude. Btw. the breakfast is the worst I had in whole Myanmar. If you...

Simply bad experience. Dirty, noisy, smelly. I read on Lonely price was around 5 - 8 usd. They asked me 30 usd, after bargaining we close at 20 usd but it is not worth the same. Only thing acceptable is the breakfast in a restaurant aside the "hotel".

At first they showed us a room in the main building which was just totally disgusting! For a few dollars more they showed us a room in the apartment building just behind the hotel. These rooms were considerably new. It seemed like the rooms were not well maintained over the years. The plumbing was just terrible! Water coming through the...

It's difficult to describe just how terrible this place is, it is possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. We had a look at the rooms in the front building and decided it would be a better idea to stay in the building out the back because the rooms smell so much of cigarette smoke. We paid 25...

In 4 months of travelling throughout Southest Asia, this place wins the "Golden Raspberry" - the worst of them all. Dirty, plenty of flies in the bathroom as well as their heirs. Malfuntioning aircon at a useless location (underneath a window which could not be closed). Unfriendly staff. Overpriced. Charge half day rate if you check out at 3pm. Did...

We arrived here from Bagan. Double $20 Triple $25 Staff 's attitude left a bit to be desired, they were more interested in playing with their mobile phones than attending to their guests. Rooms were disgusting, dodgy electricals, peeling paint in rooms & bathrooms,ants, mouldy bathrooms with no ventilation, clumps of hair in the hallways and betel nut spit stains...

From the outside does't look very bad. Inside, on the stairs, full of garbage. The room looked good, but during the night a mouse searched in the garbage from the bathroom, so keep the door closed during the night. Our friends that had a room near ours, found the mouse hiding near the bed. The water was cold, not that...

This hotel should be avoided, it is really disgusting. There was even a rat in the room (which the staff kindly chased away). The sheets are full of holes from cigarettes from people smoking in the bed and the toilets are smelly.
