Silver Coast Beach Hotel
A reasonable second choice
What we say:
A decent backup plan to next-door Shwe Hin Tha Hotel, Silver Coast offers slightly inferior rooms at similar prices. Two types of rooms are available: beach cottages with air-con and mini fridge, as well as a strip of fan rooms located further from the water. Rooms are very well maintained except for the cheap vinyl flooring, which is cracking and bubbling up. All rooms are equipped with a TV and clean bathroom. The friendly staff member we met was helpful and able to answer all of our questions regarding onward travel -- though he seemed a bit lonely in the empty hotel. With some minor upgrades and a little attention to the landscaping, this hotel could be a top budget option in Ngwe Saung. Breakfast is included in the room rate. No WiFi.

It wasn't a happy ending!
We are from Yangon. We this hotel's phone number from the next door Shwe Hintha Hotel, where we usually stay and love, as their rooms were all booked. Then I learned about this hotel in several websites, including this. The reviews are not very excellent, but I thought it should be fine for a budget hotel. There was not much difference in price, but there was a huge difference in service, rooms and people. My parents stayed at a superior room which seemed much better than the economic room, where my husband and I stayed. They gave us worn-out bedsheets,blankets & towels, distorted pillows, an uncomfortable bed and poorly-working shower. We didn't complain them about all these things as we didn't want to destroy our holiday mood. There was only one delight in the compound: the restaurant and its people - friendly people, nice food, fair price - which later we found out to be a separate business. No wonder! Here is the drama coming. At breakfast, they gave us fried vermicelli, which I'd never eat for breakfast, and coffee. When I said I couldn't eat that, they said that's the only food for the local visitors, but if I wanted, I could get toast. I said, ''yes, I'm okay with toast''. Then I asked for orange juice, but they said that was only for the foreigners. Again I had to say, ''I WANT ORANGE JUICE!''. They did come back with the orange juice, but, to my surprise, they took my coffee back! OMG! When I asked for the fruit, they repeated the same sentence! That certainly pissed me off! I couldn't believe myself that, for the first time in my life, I had to fight for a banana, a cup of coffee and a glass of orange juice, for the reason that I'm a local visitor, while the foreign guests were enjoying their breakfast without any trouble. I also saw a local guest, who wanted some more fried vermicelli as he looked still hungry, being denied by the waitress. I had a look at the foreigners at other tables and what they were eating. They had toast or pancake, nes-coffee, orange juice and a plateful of fruit. I saw a German lady eating a whole papaya. She couldn't finish it and she was allowed when she asked if she could take it to her room. That really exploded me. I stormed into the manager's office, but he wasn't there. I talked to the receptionist woman, who wasn't totally sincere. She first tried to cheat me that the foreigners paid extra charges for the juice and the fruit. I told her that I could go and ask them that if it was true. Then she admitted that they didn't have to. I then asked her why they apply such a ridiculous rule on this earth while we were giving the same price they charged us and never asked for bargain. She answered that that was the policy set by the Yangon HQ. So I phoned their Ygn HQ and a woman from customer service answered. I told her exactly what happened and suggested that such kind of policy must be abandoned nowadays and I couldn't stand such kind of segregation. She confirmed that that was their policy, but she said that she'll tell the office and that wasn't going to happen again the next day. You know? The next morning, we had the same breakfast: fried rice with a cold egg, same coffee and in addition, orange juice, but no fruit. I didn't complain them anymore as I was rather disappointed with those people. They completely ignored my concerns. Let me sum up. This hotel is a real budget hotel and I can genuinely recommend you to stay there if you are from a foreign country and if you could happily enjoy your well-served breakfast while your next door local guests are fighting for the same food you are eating when they have given the same price. But, this is a big BUT, if you're from Myanmar, that place might be the last place you should consider to stay in Ngwe Saung.
