Guest Houses in Bagan, Inle Lake and Manadalay


In preparation for my trip I am looking for guest houses or small privately run hotels. I am finding it difficult to obtain contact details, especially email addresses so I can contact the owners.

I would like to contact these smaller places to make reservations.

I have Googled the names of many i have read on the forums, but cannot locate numbers or email addresses. The big hotels are easy - they have web pages and contact numbers.

How do most of you make contact prior to your arrival? Do you ring them? Or, do you book when you enter the country? Does anyone know of a directory (email or phone or both) of guesthouses/small private hotels in the areas such as Manadalay, Bagan and Inle Lake? Does such a list exist?

When I did my travel last october/nov. I where using this guidebook


A lot of guest houses don´t have a email or web. but have a phonenr. I didn´t prebook but call the the guest house from where I was staying.

If you post some of the guest houses where you want to stay- I can probaly give you either email or phonenr. feel free to pm me.

The Blueprint guide is well worth a read, the maps are accurate & have been GPS by himself.

Whereas most of the phone numbers in there should still be ok, there's alot that's not due to the changing of area codes & added numbers, as in the case with Nyaungshwe for instance.

Most budget places don't really take booking months in advance, it's really not worth their while. Calling ahead when you get to Yangon is fine, phone calls are extremely cheap here. Most people only stay at one place for a couple of days so there's always a high turnover of people.

As the above two have said, if you need any numbers or mail addresses(where possible) just ask away.

Royal City Hotel :

Email: citymdy@mptmail.net.mm Ph: 02 31805

They may work..;-)

i just rocked up to the places in my guide book, personally i like to see where im staying.

COnsider the Mingalar Hotel in Bagan, it has the best view of any hotel, the Swezigon Pagoda is lit up right in front after dark.
