My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse in Chaung Tha, though we were not overly impressed with Chaung Tha itself. The beach is a few minutes walk on the opposite side of the road; however this immediate stretch of beach that runs parallel to the main road and the resorts, is very dirty and littered with...

... Unless you like being in the middle of nowhere. The staff is not the best; the room comes out of the mind of someone who wants to make money but has no clear idea what clean and having hosts mean, the only Concern is making money and the room for what it offers is way too overpriced. Plus you...

Rooms are not so bad, as usual in Myanmar expensive compared to the quality. Bathrooms are old and very often don't work in a proper way. At night generator is switched off and rooms are getting hot. Now they are building many new rooms. Restaurant in front of the guesthouse is not bad: well furnished, looks clean. Before some nice...

The staff are very friendly. Located on the main road about a 5 minute walk to the beach. Wifi is only at the reception or in the restaurant. Rooms are simple and clean but can be noisy as there is construction nearby during the day. Power is only available from 6 pm to 6 am and intermittently during the day....

Although the beach nearby (5 mins walk) is not the best stretch of Chaungtha, and the construction site next to the room whixh makes a siesta impossible, the guesthouse provides clean and standard rooms for 20-15$ a night. Not bad at all, if you consider all resorts have higher prices. Staff is lovely and can assist in planning boat trips,...

I have been staying at this guesthouse several times since I came to Chaung Tha for the first time about 10 years ago. The quality of rooms , service ,staff-performance and food in the adjoining restaurant has not changed since my first visit but like everywhere in Myanmar the prices have gone up. For 15$ single or 29$ double you...

As not so many travelers take their time to head to the beach, this is quite a undiscovered area. Compared to all the hotels which are build at the moment, this is a very warm place to stay. The staff is friendly, speaks good english and is very helpful. The little houses which you book have a lot a space...

The room here is good enough, it is clean and well equiped enough. Electricity and wifi are sometimes of, but it is normal in this town. Ladies in the reception and housekeeping are kind, friendly and helpful. Restaurant is one of the best in town, but not every night as good. I got very good tomato soup one night, and...

Yes, it's kinda gritty and spartan; but this is a beach hotel - please calibrate your expectations. The rooms are basic, the bathrooms are dirty, and the walls are thin; but the price is right for the lack of creature comforts. You pay for location near the beach. The restaurant is OK, but I was disappointed at the lack of...
