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 Mya Guesthouse (who quoted us $35 for a single, which is, quite frankly, totally delusional) has habitable basic rooms with private bathroom at a more reasonable (though still inflated) priceline.
The friendly owners speak very limited English but were busy painting the lobby entrance when we showed up so perhaps they have grand plans.
