Myawaddy Hotel is a great deal and is found just a five-minute walk from immigration past the market on the main street.

Photo of Myawaddy Hotel
This substantial and relatively long-established hotel consists of two five-storey blocks in an L-shape aside a carpark. Rooms are on the top four floors, with reception and a restaurant taking up the ground floors of the two wings. As there is no lift, rooms on the fourth floor are offered at discount rates. If you’re already walking up to the third floor then one more flight of stairs will save you $8-10. Plus helpful staff will help you carry up your bags in the first place anyway.

The air-con rooms themselves are functional rather than fancy, but are clean and comfortable enough. Amenities include fridge, cable TV and workable WiFi, plus uninspired breakfast is included. The bathrooms come with hot-water showers. For $22, that’s a bargain. Standard rooms aren’t too pokey though you can upgrade to larger superior rooms for $10 more if you fancy a bit of cat-swinging.

Plentiful staff are helpful and friendly, and a couple of them spoke excellent English. The restaurant serves up cold drinks and some very good Sino-Burmese dishes. The market’s just a short walk back down the road towards the bridge and the town’s principal temple, Shwe Muay Wan Pagoda, is directly opposite. If you’re carrying heavy bags, a taxi from the bridge shouldn’t set you back more than 1,000 kyat. Myawaddy Hotel is comfortable, welcoming and good value.
