This hostel, located on the main street of Nyaung U, offers very cheap ($ 4-5 for a single room in March 2009) accommodation. Rooms are air conditioned, but it only works only when there is electricity, since they have no generator. Throughout Myanmar power outages are common. There is a man who works at the front desk who speaks good English and likes to talk to the guests. He also works a young boy who looks like the Burmese Rafa Nadal. Breakfast is included but is extremely simple. The room cleanliness is improved.
The Golden Express has good value for money. The price of a double room was 24,000 kyats (about $ 24) in March 2009. Breakfast in the garden was great. It offers a swimming pool and a PC with Internet. It's located halfway between Nyaung U and Old Bagan (the temple area).
This three star hotel is at the entrance of the archaeological site of the city of Bagan. The breakfast buffet is delicious. The rooms are spacious and have up jacuzzi, although it is much more practical summary ducharse.En a decent hotel in which to spend pleasant evenings in this wonderful city of Bagan in Myanmar
During my visit to Bagan, I stayed in the Kaday Aung Hotel. For only 15 USD you get a bungalow with AC, a bathroom and refrigerator with the mattress on the floor. The deal is excellent and the hotel offers a service to manage bus tickets, boat, change money, and bike rental for touring the temples. You can enjoy a small pool to relax after a day of sightseeing, or just relax listening to the silence.
I didn't stay here because it exceeds the budget of a backpacker, but I had a coffee in its wonderful garden terrace with a couple of locals that I met in the temples who were staying there and who said that the place was nice, but who didn't known the price per night because their package was an all inclusive for Myanmar. It's next to the gateway to Old Bagan, meaning that its the perfect location for visiting the temples.
The Winner Guest House is a pretty minimal 6-bedroom guest house, all of the rooms come with shared bathroom. This place is basic but clean and economical, all for $ 5 including breakfast. The best thing is the family that runs it is super friendly, always attentive and willing to help with whatever. I had a bike accident could be severe and fussed to see how I was. GH also recommend this because it is much closer to the temples to the people Nyaung Oo, saving you considerable time and fatigue on bike in repeated visits to the temples.
