Aung Mingalar Boutique Hotel
Good location, average rooms
What we say:
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. Cosmetically they look good, with reasonable linen with throws, what we think was an air purifier, air-con throughout, flatscreen TV and WiFi, but they've got very mediocre bathrooms that drag down the whole ship quite a bit. Staff are friendly and courteous though. Without a swimming pool the rates are perhaps a little high. Rates include breakfast and free WiFi is available on site. This wouldn't be our first choice, but it is reasonably well positioned on the "on the way out of town" road but still within walking distance of many restaurants and a few sights.

Worst hotel ever
Tourists are cash cows not guests! This is one of the worst hotel we ever stayed in! Especially for the price! First the staff is borderline friendly and arrogant. And very forgetful too. We gave them our laundry and they forget. So we had to wait one more day... Second the room: a pit! It was dark, dirty (centimetres of dust under the bed and along the wall, fluffs and hairs, dead bugs, ...), damp, full of mosquitos and no net. Luckily we had our. No storage or tiding place. Third the bathroom: grotty! Dark, damp, mouldy, smelly. There was barely not water pressure at the shower, just a few drops here and then... We had to use the loo shower instead. Not nice! Four: the breakfast. Grim! It is supposed to be a buffet but, honestly, apart from the bananas, I do not know what was fresh and eatable! Cold fried eggs waiting on a tray. Floating curl of butter floating in water which did not seem to change from one day to another, the all lot being refilled and back in the fridge for the next breaky. Liquid sour yogurt. Coldish rice and noodles. The worst was the chicken broth with bits of bones and the chicken feet swimming in that nauseating juice. Yurk. Yurk. Yurk. We swop it all and had breakfast in town. They also rent bicycles. A first sight cheap enough, 2500 Kyats per day. It would be if the bikes were in good condition and safe. Breaks not working very well. My husband tried one before leaving on the streets and nearly broke his neck. The handle bar was not fixed at all! The only reaction the staff was laughing. No apologies. And they put the bikes back on the rack without any intention of repair. Another one would bite the dust! Conclusion: avoid this place at any cost!
