I have mixed feelings about this hotel. So, this is one of few ok hotels in Mrauk-U but that doesn't mean it is great. These are the issues I had: 1. I booked through agoda and sent an email to the hotel reconfirming the reservation as I've read that in some cases they don't receive the booking. They never replied....

After I spent a night at another hotel with a mouse problem, I moved to Shwe Thazin. Between checking in and touring the pagodas, I came back to mouse feces on a small table in the room. At night while sleeping I could hear scampering either in the walls/wooden paneling, or within the room. I cut my trip to Mrauk-U...

First of all ignore the map showing this hotel as being in Sittwe - it's really convenient, towards the middle of Mrauk U, handy for the temples and for restaurants. The grounds with the carved fountain wooden bungalows are very atmospheric. You have a little balcony that you can take your chair onto and sit on. Inside our room was...

Good hotel. The cleaness is good. The room are tipical wooden "bungalow". The hotel is placed 10minute on foot from the main road. To reach the hotel from the harbor is good to use the classical tuk-tuk. the staff is super gentle.

The rooms are all set up as little local Mrauk U Style temples. Bathrooms are somewhat poor. Rooms are clean though. Dining/breakfast room is a bit poor as well, but it is fully OK. Friendly service but a lack of english. Very central located for visiting the temples and the village

Beautiful hotel and probably one of the best in Mrauk U. Excellent service, beautiful rooms with airco, but not always warm water in the morning. Wifi only in the lobby. I got ill form eating in the restaurant. Mrauk U is not a big town, other decent restaurants at walking distance

The Shwe Thazin is a reasonable option, but don't expect any extras--like bathmats or washcloths or a tea kettle. The breakfast is fine, if a bit pedestrian. The bathroom in our room was a bit tired and had only a handheld shower. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating. Good location within walking distance of temples and restaurants. We...

Compared to the hotel we stayed in, this hotel seemed much cleaner, so we came here for lunch as my husband and I were suffering from diarrhoea. Lunch was tastier than at our own hotel, and service much better. We were surprised to find that the wifi was actually functional, and we were really glad for that.

“Rooms 202 and 203 were in the quieter row of the hotel--not close to the road”

“Take Deluxe Rooms - they are more cosy and have bath tubes. Superior Rooms probably are bigger but less cosy and worn out.”
