Also known as Hotel Amazing, rooms at the small and low-key Amazing Nyaung Shwe Hotel are excellent and location isn’t bad either, overlooking a little stream that bisects the eastern end of Yone Gyi Road.

Rates however are a little high; if they lowered them by $20 or so, we think this would be a reasonable option.

Sixteen rooms are located in a modern two-storey strip, with reception at one end and a small indoor cafe at the other. For fine weather, an outdoors deck cafe area is built directly above the stream, which, through no fault of the hotel, isn’t always the cleanest. Rooms are tastefully decorated and understated, and there’s enough room to include day bed/sofas to lounge on, as well as large beds with decent mattresses. Each room has a balcony and secnd floor ones have a bit of a view. Rooms are well appointed, with cable TV, phone, hot and cold shower, minibar and WiFi. There are three suite rooms on the second level which are slightly larger again and equipped with bathtubs -- but otherwise they are similar. That’s an expensive bath!

The hotel has been around for a while now, and we get the impression that room rates have not kept pace with the increase in competition among mid-range options. Same goes for their restaurant -- with new spots opening up in the area all the time, Amazing are reduced to offering some hefty discounts to get punters in. With views over an adjacent pagoda, this is a decent spot for a sundowner though. You should be able to find significant reductions by going through online booking websites which would make this a more worthwhile choice (though we’d definitely forget the suite rooms).
