Could do with a makeover
Strand Rd T: (057) 24703, (057) 24704
Ngwe Moe has a good location on Strand Road south of the central market and close to the jetties.
Staff are very friendly and helpful, and the rates are reasonable (for Mawlamyine), but this place has seen better days and is in serious need of a makeover. It was probably very good when it was new and could be again but for now it just serves as a compromise option if Cinderella's full, you don't want to pay inflated rates for a shabby guesthouse or you'd prefer to avoid splashing out on the Strand. There's a large ground floor restaurant topped with three floors of rooms. The rooms come with air-con, minibars, cable TV and hot showers and it's not that they're not clean: they're just past their best and lacking in decor, so they're rather charmless. Due to the lack of many alternatives, it's a convenient option to consider anyway. They were somewhat vague on upcoming high season rates, probably waiting to see how busy they get so rates quoted below are approximate. Rates do include breakfast.
