We stayed at the hotel in December 2018 and decided to come back as we were going to be visiting Bagan again in February 2020. The hotel has changed little although it is feeling a tiny bit dated and could benefit from better lighting in the rooms and even a shower curtain in the bathroom! The water supply was not the best but the rest of the property and the staff definitely take your mind off some of the failings. Having dinner in the garden is such a pleasure and something that I would do over and over again.

The pool area is just stunning with vibrant bougainvillea and breakfast has a good selection including a pancake and egg station.

This is a good hotel. Lovely pool area and gardens, friendly staff and nice big rooms.
The plumbing is a bit dodgy, several of our group had problems and lighting in the rooms is inexplicably dark. Overall though, it is a lovely place to stay, if they sharpened up on a few things it could be an excellent spot.

As you approach it looks like any other Bagan hotel but be prepared for a surprise. Chalet rooms around sculpted gardens and a clean and safe pool. Staff are welcoming and helful and breakfast packed with choice. Only let down is over priced bar and restaurant, but there are 2 good ones 2 min walk away, but you'll need a torch and watch out for giant toads

Hotel was part of a series of hotel stops in Myanmar over two weeks. Grounds lovely with pool. Drinks on expensive side compared to local restaurants / other hotels but still relatively low cost by uk standards.
All group members reported that, like my room, the rooms were tired and most toilets didn't flush properly. Quite noisy with washing machines running into early hours of mornings and local dogs barking/howling.
Breakfast items were cold except freshly cooked eggs. If you got to breakfast as it opened then selections was ok but most items and cutlery had run out by 7am and not replenished despite asking.
Staff seemed to work hard to keep things clean and tidy but let down by poor state of the rooms and lack of attention to cooking food.
I would not recommend this hotel and if on a group tour suggest requesting an alternative.

We spent nearly three weeks touring through Myanmar and visited three cities, Yangon, Mandalay and Bagan.

We took the bus from Mandalay to Bagan, which although a mere 90 miles away was due to take an advertised seven hours. How can this be? I hear you ask, well...

Think of the bus as a personal taxi service for over half the population of Mandalay, the majority of which are dropped off directly outside their front door. Next, consider a terrain so cratered it would make the moon's surface smoother than a marble. Throw in more herds of animals on the "roads" than Noah kept afloat on his ark and soon you'll get the picture.

To make the trip even more memorable, ensure the air con is on the fritz and so keep the doors open (luckily the windows could be slid back too) for fresh air and then cram on as many cash paying passengers as is impossible (they put plastic stools all along the aisle and people were still standing) to ensure the sing-a-long has plenty of support.

The only bonus was that we arrived an hour early. Somehow. Next time we fly.

Another word of warning, keep some dollars handy to get into Bagan as they will charge you a foreign tourist entry fee of US$10/head. It goes towards the upkeep of the pagodas and temples and you will need to pay in cash along with showing them your passport.

We usually do not publish room rates as we tend to stay long term, sometimes months at a time) and negotiate directly with the hotels to get the best price. Here though, you will get much better rates by going via an agent on line or with a company and their prices are easily obtainable. We paid US$ 25.00/night via an agent which is substantially cheaper than walk in rates.

When we finally arrived at the bus station, we had to take a taxi to the Thazin Garden Hotel in New Bagan, which is around (claimed) 14 km away. The taxi driver will convince you it's worth Ks 7 000 and then get one of his horse and cart pals to sit in on the ride to try and sell you a day trip. It wasn't the best of introductions to Bagan, it has to be said.

However, it got decidedly worse when we found the location was waay out in the sticks and the driver had to ask directions to find it. It is very isolated and you will become almost a captive audience, which the hotel will try and take advantage of. Food prices are OK until you realise it's "++" (another 20% to go on top for government tax and service charge) and the price of beer is obscene. Ks 4 000 for a 660 ml bottle which we paid Ks 1400 - 1 700 elsewhere in the country.

The next bit of bad news is that while they claim to have internet access and we specifically got our agent to call them a few days before we arrived to confirm, they haven't. Turns out it's due in November, which for us was still two months away.

I had an interesting "chat" with the manager and he eventually agreed to arrange for the hotel car to take me to an internet cafe the next day free of charge. I was certainly not pleased about being lied to, but there was little point in pursuing it.

We finally made it to the room which was big enough but it was so dark we could barely see the dated furniture. It smelt a bit musty and was very gloomy, even with the lights on. It didn't feel too clean either and while it had good beds, a fridge, TV and air conditioning, we didn't like the room at all.

The bathroom was equally dated and dingy and once more felt unclean, and finding a cockroach there the following morning didn't help change out minds. However, it had a bath and shower (the floor got soaked from a leak behind the bath panel) and the toilet worked OK.

Complimentary soap and shampoo, free bottled drinking water and an area to store luggage completes my recollection of the accommodation.

All was not lost though as the hotel does have wonderful gardens and they arrange for al fresco dining (if you want to pay over the odds, that is) on their lawn next to an impressive red-brick temple, which you will see plenty of around Bagan.

The swimming pool was the saving grace of our visit. It was fresh, clean and most inviting and through the tress around the sides, you can swim almost all day long in the shade, away from the burning sun.

The only other thing worth mentioning is the little family run restaurant opposite the hotel. which was called Mi San. This was the real saving grace as they cooked fabulous meals from scratch (don't be surprised if it takes at least 45 minutes before you have your meal in front of you) at super prices and they serve cold beer at much better prices. Try the Mandalay beer at Ks 1 500 a 660 ml bottle and you can't go wrong.

I'll leave the final thought with the less then honest manager who arranged our transfer to the airport (we flew back to Yangon). He repeatedly told us it would take fifty minutes and cost Ks 6 000, which we felt was about right. Turns out it was just 15 minutes up the road and of course he had insisted on taking payment in advance.

That to me sums up the Thazin Hotel; it promised much, delivered little of what it did promise and subsequently we cannot recommend this establishment.

As always, check out our Blog for much more commentary and pictures, the address of which you can find in our profile. Or just Google "ktelontour".

A perfect hotel just a little out of the main area.
It has very nice and good priced rooms/ bungalows in a nice decorated style.
The "buffet" breakfast we did not really try,d because off the fact that we were almost the only
guest for that moment and although we do understand that they can not arrange a buffet for 2 or 4 people the did not offer any alternative.
They have a beautiful swimming-pool in a even more beautiful surrounding it could be a little cleaner as the water color was more green than clear blue

Off the main road so it is a very quiet and relaxing place to stay in Bagan, after a full day of sighseeing - lovely gardens, which include an old temple. Try the food at the local restaurant just outside the hotel! It is amazing and their owners are the nicest people..they kept bringing me things to try:) great experience overall.

The Thazin Garden is in the New Bagan district, so about a 20 to 30 minute transfer from the landing stage or airport.

This was the best of the six hotels we stayed at while on holiday with Explore travel group. The chalet-styled rooms were, spacious, clean and comfortable, had air-conditioning, TV and en-suite facilities. The hotel also had several PCs providing internet access. However, what made this hotel stand out was the swimming pool, which was a great asset in this hot and humid, tropical area of Burma.

The breakfast here was excellent with fresh juices and this was the only hotel we stayed in (in Burma) that offered fried Bacon, tomato and eggs, as well as various omelettes for breakfast.
Although extremely cheap compared to Europe, the restaurant and drinks were expensive for Burma. However, there’s a really nice bar and restaurant called “Coconut Rice” just down the hotel drive and 50 yards to the right (a five minute walk).

Situated in the Archaeological Province of Bagan, this cabin style hotel is ideal for exploring the ruins of Bagan. Don't let the dusty road and cow town like areas put you off. When you get to the secluded hotel you will find it to be an oasis, well away from noise etc.

The reception was efficient and will look after your valuables. The rooms are air-conditioned and there is a bar close to the pool which does cocktails. The bar also serves meals.
Breakfast is good and served in the big dining room.
There is a souvenir shop and a massage/spa.
The rooms are kept tidy and clean and the gardens are well maintained with shady trees.
There are shops and small restaurants within walking distance but the hotel food is good and I didn't bother going elsewhere.

This was not my first trip to Myanmar, nor Bagan but whilst tourism has boomed, naturally many hotels struggle to keep up. I am pretty flexible and I was travelling alone and having selected this hotel for its perceived situation, peaceful location and boutique charm, I was rather disappointed to find that amongst other things, it was used by tour groups - which changed the dynamics somewhat.

The setting with the gardens and the pool and the stupas is certainly lovely but I found the room spacious but overbearing and dark. The bathroom was basic and not particularly clean. I could hear the couple below me snore and talk.

Unfortunately, peace and tranquility was short-lived as to be expected in Myanmar, there was a buddhist festival on at the time and the music and singing at the local temple would strike up as early as 3.30 am most mornings!

Staff were sweet and well intended but you don't put a waiter on tables on his first night who doesn't speak a smattering of any language other than Burmese (and I can get by in a few). My patience soon turned to frustration not helped by being hit in the head by a flying bat which was rather farcical and amusing - if someone had been there to share the humour! Divine providence or what?

All in all, of course I came away enjoying Bagan despite its many changes since my first visit but the hotel needs to up its game in order to justify the USD150/night in my opinion.
