Odd cave lobby but smart rooms with pool
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 head, the rooms are actually pretty smart.
Beds are firm, but the rooms are otherwise well kitted out with air-con throughout and flatscreen TVs, minibars and so on. The spotless bathrooms are each fitted with a Jacuzzi, a bit eyebrow-raising considering the facilities offered by other hotels in the area. Superior rooms are upper level and open straight onto the swimming pool (the Jacuzzis also face onto the pool, which struck us as a little odd) but the rooms are otherwise the same, so we'd say go the extra $10 so you can gaze into the swimming pool from your bubbling Jacuzzi. WiFi is available in the lobby only.
