Nyaung U and Wet Kyi Inn

These are really Bagan's most budget-orientated areas to stay. Nyaung U is also the area furthest from the monuments but remains our pick of the areas to stay, both due to the variety of local food found in the surrounds and the more reasonable prices. Wet Kyi Inn is roughly half way between Nyaung U and Old Bagan, so is closer to the monuments but a very long walk (or a 10 minute bicycle ride) from the restaurants in Nyaung U.

  • Oasis

    Oasis

    Outstanding

    Anawyahta Rd, Nyaung U
    T: (061) 60 923; F: (061) 60 923

    Set a little out of the way on Anawyahta Road, but a 10-minute walk from the market, this truly is a little Oasis. Made up of a narrow block running back off the road, Oasis has a frangipani studded ... Read the full review of Oasis.

  • Shwe Na Di Guesthouse

    Shwe Na Di Guesthouse

    Solid value, friendly staff.

    Main road, Nyaung U
    T: (061) 60 409;

    While this isn't the cheapest of the guesthouses along this stretch, we liked the staff here. It's very backpacker orientated -- the staff declared that if we could find a cheaper room with the same ... Read the full review of Shwe Na Di Guesthouse.

  • Bagan Princess Hotel

    Bagan Princess Hotel

    Odd cave lobby but smart rooms with pool

    Main road, Wet Kyi Inn
    T: (061) 60 661; F: (061) 60 661

    Bagan Princess is the priciest of the hotel digs along this stretch of Nyaung U Road in Wet Kyi Inn, and while needing to walk through a fake cavern (complete with stalactites) had us scratching our ... Read the full review of Bagan Princess Hotel.

  • New Life Guesthouse

    New Life Guesthouse

    New hotel with good facilities

    Main road, Nyaung U
    T: (061) 61 035;

    You'll struggle to miss this bright blue and green multi-floor hotel on the road into Nyaung U and once you get inside you'll find the rooms are almost as sparkling as the exterior. They're very ... Read the full review of New Life Guesthouse.

  • Pann Cherry Guesthouse

    Pann Cherry Guesthouse

    Cheapest beds in town

    Main road, Nyaung U

    This is, to our knowledge, the cheapest place to stay in Nyaung U. Unfortunately we were unable to see a room as the decidedly grumpy staffer advised they were full both times we visited. ... Read the full review of Pann Cherry Guesthouse.

  • New Park Hotel

    New Park Hotel

    A sleepy flashpacker option

    Thiripyitsaya Rd, Block number 4, Nyaung U
    T: (061) 60 322;

    New Park is set in two longhouses (along with some rooms out back) running parallel to one of the backstreets running off restaurant row. It boasts a comfortable lazing around area under the shadow ... Read the full review of New Park Hotel.

  • Pyinsa Rupa Guesthouse

    Pyinsa Rupa Guesthouse

    Cheapish single rooms

    Main road, Nyaung U
    T: (061) 60 607;

    Next off the rack after Inn Wa, but on the other side of the road, Pyinsa Rupa really doesn't look like much chop from the outside, but as long as you don't mind the slightly grotty shared-bathroom ... Read the full review of Pyinsa Rupa Guesthouse.

  • Inn Wa Guesthouse

    Inn Wa Guesthouse

    Convenient for a late night arrival

    Main road, Nyaung U
    T: (061) 60 902;

    If you're a very late night/very early morning arrival into Bagan, chances are you'll be dropped off just around the corner from the Inn Wa on Anawrahta Road, meaning this is the closest spot to hit ... Read the full review of Inn Wa Guesthouse.

  • Winner Guesthouse

    Winner Guesthouse

    Last budget bed before the ruins

    Main road, Wet Kyi Inn

    This is pretty much the last budget bet for a long way -- well until New Bagan actually -- though the guesthouse next door was being renovated when we visited in mid-2013, so it should soon be second ... Read the full review of Winner Guesthouse.

    Bagan Umbra (previously Golden Express) is the last hotel on the Nyaung U to Old Bagan road until you get to the outskirts of Old Bagan a couple of kilometres further down the road. Rooms are in a ... Read the full review of Bagan Umbra Hotel.

    May Kha Lar Guesthouse

    Straight shooting and helpful

    Main road, Nyaung U
    T: (061) 60 304;

    May Kha Lar offers slightly better rooms for slightly lower prices than Inn Wa and is worth the extra legwork to reach. Rooms are clean and have an airier feel to them -- they're almost bright rather ... Read the full review of May Kha Lar Guesthouse.

  • Aung Mingalar Boutique Hotel

    Aung Mingalar Boutique Hotel

    Good location, average rooms

    Sepintharyar Quarter Number 5, Nyaung U, Opposite Shwezigon pagoda
    T: (061) 60 847;

    Aung Mingalar has a great location almost straight opposite the glistening Shwezigon pagoda, but the rooms unfortunately are not quite as bright and beautiful as the pagoda across the road. ... Read the full review of Aung Mingalar Boutique Hotel.

New Bagan

New Bagan was once Old Bagan, till the junta kicked the villagers out on their collective backsides to this dusty set of crossroads south of the major monuments that became New Bagan. Accommodation is a very mixed bag, attracting tour groups more than anything else. The accommodation generally is poor value, though at least rates are not as inflated as in Old Bagan.

  • Kumudara Hotel

    Kumudara Hotel

    A desert setting

    Corner of 5th and Daw Na St
    T: (061) 65 142;

    Situated in the northeast corner of New Bagan, a solid 10-minute walk from, well, just about anywhere, the Kumudara is a bit of an anomaly. While we've never been to Palm Springs, upon arrival it ... Read the full review of Kumudara Hotel.

    This newish hotel is on the main road through New Bagan, right by the Eight Faces Paya, and offers excellent flashpacker value for New Bagan. Rooms come in three flavours: standard, superior and ... Read the full review of Thiri Sandar Royal Bagan Hotel.

    Mya Thida Hotel

    Budget dorms in New Bagan

    School Street, New Bagan
    T: (094) 5006 6777;

    It doesn't look like much from the street, but this budget hotel has very clean, spartan air-con rooms with well-maintained private bathrooms along with a four-bed (two bunkbeds) dorm. The latter has ... Read the full review of Mya Thida Hotel.

  • Bagan Beauty Hotel

    Bagan Beauty Hotel

    Not quite a beauty

    Main Road, New Bagan

    If you're travelling on a budget, New Bagan in general really is not a good option, but if the Mya Thinda (and everything else) is full, Bagan Beauty Hotel, on the main road and next door to Kyi Kyi ... Read the full review of Bagan Beauty Hotel.

    Bagan Central Hotel

    OK value for New Bagan

    15/16 Kha Yay Street
    T: (061) 65 057;

    This rather unusual hotel is set on the main road through New Bagan and has gone for a peculiar, almost Flintstones finish with frosted grass windows rounding out the look to the exterior of their ... Read the full review of Bagan Central Hotel.

Old Bagan

This is Bagan's luxury quarter, where you're permitted the privilege of paying through the nose for some of the most overpriced hotel accommodation we've seen in some time. Still, if you want to be right among the ruins, this is as close as you can get.
