No penguins or bears this time, the powder blue and pale mauve Kawthaung Hotel lies on Bogyoke Road where the main street winds its way along the summit.

The location isn’t as good as Penguin or Honey Bear but not as bad as Garden. If you cut straight down the hill past the temple it shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to reach the waterfront. If you can’t face the walk back up then a tuk tuk will set you back 20 baht. If you don’t mind the location, then they do offer the best all-round deal in town for rooms, though they won’t win any awards for character. Interiors are pale green and functional rather than attractive. Rooms are spacious with air-con, hot water bathrooms, inclusive breakfast and the friendliest staff we came across in Kawthaung. Clean bathrooms come with hot water, and WiFi was no better or worse than any other hotel in town. Note that rooms at the rear do look over Kawthaung’s busiest road, Bogyoke, so you might want to find one at the front. This is a good compromise in terms of room quality and location compared to the claustrophobic Penguin or far-off Garden. Rates are very reasonable.
