Lack of competition though makes the rooms a few dollars more than equivalent rates would be in say Bagan or Mandalay.

Ground floor standard rooms are basic and on the small, dingy side, as are their ensuite bathrooms. Having said that, they do come with hot water and air-con and proximity to reception means the WiFi reception is better than in other rooms. You do benefit from their excellent seventh-floor rooftop breakfasts -- which range from mohinga to croissants -- and the hotel location is second to none. Chindwin is in the central stretch of Bogyoke, close to the statue roundabout, and with the night market right in front of the door.

Superiors are better, with improved views, and huge deluxe options on the highest floors better still, with the best views. These rooms are also much better maintained, brighter and decorated with decent wooden furniture and varnished floors. Deluxe at the front come with balconies as well as bathtubs. Staff are obliging and helpful at arranging onward and local transport.

The rooftop terrace, with a peculiar round viewing tower, is one of the hotel's strong points. During dry season tables and chairs are arranged outside, making for great sundowner potential. Hotel Chindwin is justifiably popular, and being the only downtown hotel in this price category it is best to book in advance at any time of year.
