Bagan Umbra Hotel
Not a bad family option
Main road, Wet Kyi Inn T: (061) 60 034 F: (061) 60 379
Bagan Umbra (previously Golden Express) is the last hotel on the Nyaung U to Old Bagan road until you get to the outskirts of Old Bagan a couple of kilometres further down the road.
Rooms are in a series of longhouse-style blocks set a little bit back off the road. At the rear of the hotel is a medium-sized swimming pool, which significantly adds to the value of the hotel. Rooms are just ordinary; standards have badly scuffed walls and blistering/peeling paint, but they're of a reasonable size, with air-con throughout and WiFi on tap. All rates include breakfast. We only saw a standard room and while it's perhaps a little overpriced, once the pool and the breakfast are taken into account it isn't such a bad deal by Bagan standards. Staff are friendly and helpful. At this extremity of Wet Kyi Inn village, you're well positioned for the ruins and only a 10-minute bicycle ride back into the village. With plenty of rooms this is a good high season option and popular with families with kids due to the pool.
