US$20 to $40
Lucky Dragon Hotel
Flashpacker - US$20 to $40
772 Strand Rd, Pyay
T: (053) 24 222

Lucky Dragon is easily the best hotel in Pyay, with cosy cottages running in two rows back from the streetside, where you’ll find the reception area, restaurant and a small swimming pool.

222 Bazaar (Market) St, Pyay
Under US$20
Myat Lodging House
Backpacker - Under US$20
222 Bazaar (Market) St, Pyay
T: (053) 25 695

If you’re on a budget, Myat Lodging House is the traveller digs in Pyay. It’s a peculiar setup -- you need to walk through an upstairs shared bathroom area to reach a second wing of rooms, but that aside, for the money this isn’t bad.

Flashpacker - US$20 to $40

10-11 Bogyoke Road, Pyay
US$20 to $40
Smile Hotel
Flashpacker - US$20 to $40
10-11 Bogyoke Road, Pyay
T: (053) 25 142

It’s more of a grimace than a smile, but the rooms here (and there are plenty of them) are of a very good size, and some come with air-con. Bathrooms are just okay; the one we were shown was extremely fumey but otherwise fine. Facilities include TV and minibar and the rates include breakfast. Beds are super soft. Set on the busy Bogyoke Road and backing onto the train station, go for a room at... Read our full review of Smile Hotel.
