Big rooms with a central location
Bogyoke Rd, Monywa T: (071) 21 548 F: (071) 22 717
On our first night at Golden Arrow our air-con unit could not be turned off and our companion's room had a broken toilet.
The second time it wasn't all that much better. Golden Arrow is grimy and rundown but the rooms are large, the free WiFi kind of works in a random fashion and the location, right by the clocktower, is excellent and central. If you can afford it, the Hotel Chindwin about 100 metres down the road is a far far far better hotel, but if you're on a budget, this is where you'll most likely end up. (There is another budget hotel in town a couple of blocks away, but they were full and very rude, so we stuck with here.) The Green Arrow has plenty of rooms so you'll almost never be at risk of not getting a room here ... unfortunately.
