The Cinderella Hotel is not only Mawlamyine’s best accommodation option, it’s one of the best we’ve found anywhere in Burma (Myanmar). However, being small and very popular, unless you’ve booked well in advance you’re going to be very lucky to get a room during high season — and still quite fortunate during low periods.

The Cinderella has a central position on Baho Street within walking distance of most of the town’s sights. Don’t let the pale mauve exterior put you off; the interior is tastefully decorated and the minimal space in what is really just a large converted villa has been used wisely. Facilities are second to none in Mawlamyine, with cable TV, WiFi (and even a computer in many rooms), hot showers and probably the most extensive minibars we’ve seen in Burma. Free tea and coffee in your room come with complimentary chocolate biscuits.

What was formerly a small car-park at the rear has been converted into a very pleasant outdoor cafe area to complement the existing indoor restaurant, where the inclusive breakfasts plus drinks, lunch and dinner are served. The already generous breakfasts now have the added attraction of an in-house street-food vendor who knocks up different local-style sweets such as coconut wafers and sticky rice desserts on site.

Rooms are an eclectic collection — barely any two are alike. Some are more spacious than others, some are quieter, and certain ground floor rooms come with balconies for smokers. All rooms though are comfortable and clean. The decor is more homely than boutique.

They offer spacious triples and family rooms as well, though even the single rooms aren’t small and are a particularly good deal at $25 compared to other options in town. Deluxe rooms have slightly more attention to decor and a few extra facilities but to our minds are not worth the upgrade from what are already more than decent rooms.

The plentiful staff members are super-attentive and very friendly — almost too much so, as each time you enter the building or go for breakfast you’ll need to return greetings at least six times. English levels are generally good and plenty of travel information and reservation services are available.

The hotel’s Mawlamyine maps are free for guests and the best we’ve found. Their WiFi puts the upmarket Strand to shame, too.

One day they’ll do a make-over, change the name to Cinderella Boutique and double their prices. For now though, we strongly recommend booking ahead to snare a room at Cinderella Hotel.
