Aquarius Inn boasts a small but lush garden setting and offers both fan-cooled shared-bathroom rooms as well as air-con ones with ensuite bathroom.

The funky, object-filled, museum-ish reception creates an immediately fun atmosphere. The wood-built fan rooms are small, with not much room for more than a bed, and they have decidedly thin walls, but they are clean, as are communal bathrooms.

The new as of 2016 well-designed air-con alternatives come with agreeable balconies, though there are a few communal seating areas dotted around the delightful garden. The newer rooms are roomy, and come with wardrobes -- rare for Nyaung Shwe -- as well as fridges. Beds are comfy and dark varnished wood contrasts appealingly with clean white walls. Rooms are equipped with mozzie nets -- that’s the price you pay for a lush garden.

The small size and communal seating areas create an intimate feel, so this is a good spot to meet fellow travellers. Staff made up for a lack of English fluency with attentive, friendly service. Breakfasts are included, even for $15 rooms, and fruit and tea seemed to be distributed at various times of the day. WiFi seemed better than average though maybe we were just lucky.

Certain rooms can get noisy – that’s the meeting fellow travellers bit – and budget rooms could benefit from ear plugs, but if budget is your main concern they’re okay. If you double your money, the new air-con rooms are spacious and comfortable.

The location is approximately equidistant from Yone Gyi Road and the jetties, so location is a good point too. Recommended!
