Great location, Comfy stay

helpful staff, great location, comfy room
I had a pleasant time staying at this hotel. It's located in the middle of the city so it's not too far to go to old bagan or new bagan. Superb!

Outstanding service

Service!! The pools, the food.
Outstanding service, we became good friends with a few staff here that went above and beyond to make sure our stay was outstanding. The rooms are good but somewhat basic for western standard but we were only there the sleep and the air con worked perfectly. This hotel is slightly more expensive but the value from the staff more than makes up for it.

A lovely hotel in Bagan

Food, Atmosphere, Location
If you want to find a worthy hotel with affordable price, this is your choice. It is located between Naung-U and Old bagan, so you can go to attractions easily as well as go shoping at the city market. Only one thing which was not sastisflied was the bathroom inside my room. Others were fine.

The location of the hotel is ideal - halfway along the main road situated back from the road so you are aware from the car / traffic noise. The pool is lovely and the food at the restaurant was nice too - large buffet breakfast. Staff service was good, both at reception and in the restaurant.

A bit of luxury in dusty and dry Bagan

Pool, location and comfort
My friend and I stayed at Umbra for 4 nights while visiting Bagan. This hotel was a relief after a very long and hot bus ride from Mandalay! The swimming pool was nice and the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. We stayed in one of the basic double rooms in the old part of the hotel, and this was perfectly fine for us. I did however look into some of the new rooms in the new wing and they looked lovely as well, but we were traveling on a budget. The rooms had air-con, a fridge, kettle and a few different TV stations to enjoy when we were exhausted from temple-seeing. Breakfast buffet was ok and had all the basics. In the evenings, they often had some music playing at the pool/restaurant area. Food was a little overpriced, but there are plenty of different places to eat at and you don't have to go very far for them. It was also convenient that you could rent bicycles for $1 for a half day or $2 for a full day. It was pleasant to bike around the temples in the early morning. If traveling between March-June - BEWARE - this is the hottest time of the year and temperatures reach over 40 degrees celsius. The hotel also rents E-bikes or electric scooters for $4 half day and $6 for a full day. Just check to make sure the brakes and lights are working as there are no street lights in Bagan! Overall, if you can afford the luxury, stay here if only for the swimming pool! I recommend getting up early (they start breakfast at 6), go see the temples and come back just before lunch for a swim in the pool and a nap. It gets very hot!

A Great Hotel

Location Staff & Buffet Breakfast
The buffet breakfast had a wide variety of different dishes and was extensive. The pool area is amazing and the hotel is located to the temples of Bagan. Once you checked in, the staff didn't really seem to want to have much more to do with you and the odd smile would have been nice when getting or returning your key. However, a great hotel definitely recommended.

Unfriendly staff

Comfy bed, free breakfast, and good location
Our stay was good, however the staff was quite unfriendly. Anytime we had a question it always felt like we were nothing them. Twice they didn't answer our questions and pushed us out the door. I would stay here again as long as you don't have any questions. The bed was comfy though!
