We spent the night in Sittwe in order to get a boat to Mrauk U. Not a lot of choice when it came to finding a hotel. We found very little to like about the city or the hotel. Friendly staff, not very expensive. But very rundown, on the Main Street so noisy, breakfast definitely not gourmet. We had a...

We stayed at the hotel just for a stopover on our trip to Mrauk U. Just for one night it will work and was ok for us. And yes there is enough to complain about: very small room, dirty small bathroom, room on 4th floor, breakfast on 5th but no elevator and breakfast is poor. But for us staff in...

This hotel is under ongoing development. We booked online as we sat in the hotel reception for £35 a night & chose to upgrade from superior to deluxe double room at additional £2.80. Staff had no problem with us doing this & it saved our Khat for our last night in Yangon. In all honesty we really enjoyed our stay...

It is a simple hotel, but has everything you need. The bathroom, especially the tub, was not very clean. The wifi does not work in the room, but down by the Reception it is really fast.The staff are friendly and helpful.The breakfast is rather small, unless you like Asian breakfast.

Lonely planet says its the best hotel in sittwe, but it's not! The rooms are tiny, dusty and in our room the ventilaror fell out of the wall, leaving a big hole looking outside.... They are renovating the place, but I believe it's a lost cause. There are much better hotels just around the corner, friends were staying at the...

This hotel is under major renovation so is covered in dust and constant building noises. Rooms are dated and not worth the price. I am sure once its done it will be much better, but till then, I wouldn't stay there. Staff friendly and helpful. The fair location is all that saves it. Wifi is patchy.

The hotel is currently being reconstructed and is a right mess! Construction noise and dust during the day. They are building an external lift, which will be most welcome! The room was cramped and basic. The bathroom desperately needed refurbishment and was a little dirty. Breakfast, on the top floor, was a very basic buffet.

We were visiting Mrauk U the next day and had to stay one night in Sittwe before the boat would take us the next morning. This is one of the worst hotels I've ever had the misfortune of having to stay at! On booking the price was $40 for a room. Then later they changed it to $45. Upon arrival,...
