Decent one night stay”

We stayed for one night while visiting the golden temple. Room was ok, ac worked fine, cleanliness could have been improved. Grounds and potential are very good, but seems to be lacking. Staff was helpful in booking bus tickets. Property had a pool, but didn’t have time to use it. At at the restaurant and that was the highlight of the stay. Reasonable prices and delicious food. Restaurant manager was very nice and accommodating. Hotel is about .5 mile from bus station in Kin Pun.

Property is totally under construction and not open but taking bookings online? The person there told us it was under new ownership and found us another place to stay, which was great. I would not book this property unless you confirm the construction is done - and they will be opening under a new name.

excellent hotel rooms amazing staff and food”

rooms price staff and everything about the atmosphere. it was so relaxing

What an amazing place!! My room was totally water in a huge bathroom...a beautiful veranda to sit out on. My bed was really comfortable. A warm welcome from the staff. My breakfast was very fulfilling. .fried rice with fried egg and toast butter and jam with lipton tea! I didnt need to think about good until lunch! The restaurant is so chilled out and designed in such a cool way. Hotel is located just outside of town (10 minute walk from bus drop off). Its also 5 minutes walk from the golden rock truck stop. I had a lovely club sandwich for lunch and an amazing burger and fries for dinner! The big thing about the restaurant which appealed to me was the draft beer!! Just what I needed after a hot day out at the golden rock. The staff were so attentive and arranged my bus trip for my onward journey. The grounds of the hotel are sooo relaxing with trees and gardens and I felt like I was in a resort in the carribean! I would recommend this hotel 100% and I had np problems whatsoever. If your leaving early in the morning for onward travel wear a jersey as its a little bit cold in the mornings. This hotel has the feeling of a family hotel. I was kinda at odds as to what to do after dinner so took a walk and had tea in a tea shop and stumbled across an indoor fun fair called "Smileworld" cheesy but fun with a ferris games..haunted spooky house! Passed the time. The village has various shops for souvenirs and food and is very close to the hotel. Overall I had an amazing experience at lotus away from the craziness of myanmar. Thanks to all the staff and hope to see you again!

We arrived very early in the morning with a night bus and we could check in straight away in another room, because our was still ocupied, and get some good sleep. Didnt even had to pay more for that! Super friendly and we were of course super glad. Our room was super clean, big and nice! (one of the cleanest rooms ive stayed while travelling in asia for this price!) Its a little away from the center but totaly in walking distance. I would defenitly reccomend this hotel!

Excellent place to stay”

Friendly and helpfull staff. Excellent tasty food at the restaurant at good prices, and the breakfast was delicious compared to the traditional white toasts and cold eggs of most budget hotels in Myanmar. Cheap cold beer in frosted mugs at the restaurant/bar, clean room with hot water and A/C, and one of the cheaper prices around. Recommended

perfect location for the Golden Rock”

This was the best value in the area & we were very happy with our stay. It is walking distance to the van that takes you up to the Golden Rock & the hotel is in a nice setting. Basic rooms but clean & cool aircon. Everything you need. Veranda to relax on outside the room. Breakfast of hot drink fried egg & toast included and starts early which is good if you wish go to the rock early in the morning. The owner is friendly, helpful & welcoming. We would stay here again

thumbs up!!”

We spent 3 nights in total. The first two nights in a budget room and the third night the hotel decided to upgraded our room for the same price, which was appreciated. The location is perfect to move around and close to 19th street (BBQ, street food etc.). The staff was very nice and tried to help us anytime. Conclusion, this is the place to stay if you visit Yangon & if you like good coffee in the morning ;-)

Great for Short Break”

Great Service and Location

We came for a short weekend break to visit the Golden Rock. We chose this hotel because it is in between the station (15 minutes walk) for mandatory truck transport and the base checkpoint (5 minutes drive) making it easier for us to be dropped off on return journey. Our lovely chalet type bungalow in the hotel grounds reminded us of Balinese style lighting, private space and relaxing comfort. We had a mini-fridge and multi-plug socket n our bright and cool room. The ensuite tiled bathroom - toiletries, bathtub and hot shower - .was big and spanking clean. All guest requests were quickly fulfilled with smiles which can only invoke happiness in guests. The extra bed provided was as, if not more comfortable, than the two thick spring beds already in the room. Breakfast was generous. The European general managers, Merlyn and Francya, were simply wonderful in their warm welcoming gestures and sincere advice for foreign guests.

Tripple room”

First the 3 of us stayed in 2 seperate twin bed bungalows. They seemed a bit old, with the bathroom doors not closing properly, a bit musty smelling and moscitos coming in through some cracks. The tripple room we stayed in last was great. It was one of the newer buildings I believe. The floor was a bit slippery but as long as you walk carefully you should be fine. They got a restaurant, a pool table, hair driers (you need to ask for them) and other facilities. Laundry service is available too but be aware to bring enough time since in the rainy season you have to wait longer for the washing to dry. They might not tell you so ask them upfront. The staff was super friendly and the walk into town only 5-10min. All in total it was an okay experience.
