Help with selecting independent hotels?

Jump to last reply

We have requested independent hotels without strong ties to the government and have received some suggestions from Myanmar travel agencies. However, the NYT article "Visiting Myanmar: It’s Complicated" captures some of the complexity in selection of hotels. We would prefer to avoid places that are owned by folks who are on the US Treasury’s blacklist.

Any thoughts about the following hotels or locations? Have looked at the reviews on Tripadvisor but travel agencies seem to have specific hotels that they work with, and some of the below suggestions aren't on Tripadvisor.

Prefer private room with in-suite bath with hot/cold running water and A/C so not backpacker. Budget to mid-range? Clean, and quiet are important. We know that prices are rapidly climbing so ultimately price may be the deciding factor.

Yangon
Panorama hotel
Clover City Hotel (smells?)
Inya Lake Hotel (poor value?)
Summit Park View Hotel (possible view of pagoda)
Green Hill Hotel (possible view of pagoda)

Bagan
Sky Palace hotel
Bagan Thande Hotel
Tharabar Gate Bagan

Kalaw
Nature Land hotel
Hill Top Hotel

Nyaungshwe/inle lake
Hupin Nyaungshwe
Khaung Daing Hotel Inle Lake
Royal Inle Lake Hotel

Ngapali
Pleasant View resort
Bay View Resort
Lin Thiar Oo

Thank you.
