Photo of Aurora Guesthouse
We reckon it provides a better budget option than the popular but decidedly grungy Breeze. Aurora is located in a three-story, pale green building, upstairs from a ground floor shop. We’re guessing it’s a 1950s-period building that’s been tastefully resorted. The exterior boasts a few art deco flourishes.

Rooms are simple and lack decoration but are clean and comfortable and come in fan-cooled or air-con flavours. The interior of the old building is slightly dark and not as nicely restored as the exterior, but prices for both room types are extremely reasonable for these parts. Airy front rooms look onto communal balconies while from rear rooms you can get a glimpse of the port. Fan-cooled rooms have shared bathrooms and air-con ones attached versions. While the former are slightly on the dreary side, what would you expect in Burma for $7?

Breakfast isn’t included and there’s no communal seating area. They do have WiFi and bicycles for guests. Being less well known than nearby Breeze, you’ve also got a better chance of getting a room here. Entrance is by way of a staircase to the right of the building as you face it.
