We’d describe Aung Mingalar as erratic rather than boutique. Though their layout and rooms aren’t bad it does have a slightly past its best feel. The old wood, brick and tin-roofed clubhouse type building looks like it should contain a billiard table and hunting trophies, but it’s set off the road in a very pleasant, tree-studded garden. (If they changed the roof, it could look really good.) A small reception to one side houses an equally small seating area and cafe, while rooms are arranged in single-storey rows. There are cream-coloured garden rooms with small balconies and a row of newer, red brick ones out back in a courtyard. The latter were better kept, but lacked light. Interiors are passable, with air-con and hot showers and plenty of space though ensuite bathrooms could do with some serious attention and there was a slightly musty odour. The setting opposite the entrance to Shwezigon Paya and a short walk from what passes for downtown Nyaung U is convenient. With a bit of effort, Aung Mingalar could improve no end, though we did find the staff very helpful. For now though, it’s debatable whether it’s worth the published rates unless you can get a discount. But with decent accommodation at a premium in high season, we’re listing it here as a fallback.
