    Clean and comfortable”
    Amara Gold is a little out of town. Not sure what the accomodation is like right in town. If you have a motor bike this is not a problem, as I don't ride I hire a scooter/driver for half a day to see the sites which worked out well for me. The room I had was very large, bathroom big and clean, bed very comfortable . There is a large selection for breakfast. They also do other meals here at a reasonable price. Wi fi works well both in your room and around the property. Reception can organise bus tickets as well as tours. I would stay here again

    Truth is that we dont get the very bad reviews, room was clean with bathroom was ok too. Breakfast as you usually get in myanmar and the staff was very helpful. A little bit far from "town". I would not recommend to go to Bago, but the hotel was fine.

    Clean, friendly and cheap!”
    We cannot understand the negative reviews, because during our stay we were happy with everything! It starts with free drinking water at any times for guest, the staff is really friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, AC is available and even the breakfast is very good (eggs, fried rice, noodles, tosst, fruits, jam, coffee, tee and juice). The accommodation is located in a sideway of the busy high way, but though it is very quiet. We would stay again!

    Should avoid to get bus tickets at reception ”
    Hotel was fine. Stuffs were nice. Breakfast was nice. We got free nice bracelets. Only one BIG negative that we booked the bus to get Kin Pun at this hotel. At first I just wanted to know from which bus station or from where I can go to Kyaiktiyo Pagoda by using bus. But once I started to ask these questions that receptionist boy suddenly called for someone then he forced to call with that call, after couple minutes later one guy probably tuktuk or taxi driver which he can speak English came to the hotel and force to buy bus tickets. But I said to him. We just would like to know from where we can ride or which bus station we can use. But unfortunately that was too late. Yeah I bet that was typical scam and Before book this hotel that I’ve checked some bad reviews. He was just force to book bus tickets. When he suggested to buy bus tickets that he said that you have to go back before 3pm because last bus is 3pm so if you will be late more than 3 that you have to ride on the taxi. (But we booked 4:30pm bus to go back Bago at Kyaiktiyo Pagoda ) So he also recommended to us that we can also hire taxi 70$. But I thought just he was lying, nasty maggot, so we just decided to get one way tickets to go kin pin directly. (We asked him that bus is direct to go Kinpun and he said yes) And I thought just like about 5000kyat but that was double price (10000kyat) no way. Then I asked him that too expensive but he just said because I will book and you can just ride on near hotel. Yes we have no choice I know and that is most easy way. I just thought okay for me this is study. Yeah. But this story is still not finished yet. After arrived kin pun (we thought first) but actually that was Kyakto town( before Kinpun) when we arrived there bus driver said you will ride on other bus then when we get off the bus one guy said to us follow me. Okay we will yeah but what? That guy forced to ride on motorbike taxi. Then I said to him, do we need pay? We already paid why we have to pay

    location, cleanliness, aircon and wifi
    Very pleasant location, just out of the centre of town so away from the traffic and noise. Rooms recently renovated and clean. Trees and flowers around the grounds but only limited space to sit outside. Odd that the deluxe rooms have small tub and no shower while the standard has a good shower. Breakfast OK.

    Just find another place. ”
    There must many many better places in Bago for the same price. The feeling I had my whole stay (2 nights) is that they just wanna make money out of any possible occasion. Position is bad, service is bad and rooms are old. Just find a better place in the old city for the same price in this beautiful place.

    Be careful of cheaters and tout in the lobby area”
    First of all, the room was basic, spacious, but ok, the bed was not very comfortable, but can stay. The breakfast was buffet. Quite good. But the worst part here was the staff, first of all the manager wanted to change the money 100$ with the rate 1$ = 1300, the next day gave rate of 1320, and said that I can't exchange anywhere else with better rate because it is weekend and then holiday, so everything is closed and the golden rock where I am going doesn't have money change (but it is not true, moreover after I reached there, I changed with the rate 1356,5). Another thing, there was a guy from so called "travel agency" (main tout, cheater), who started offering ticket from Bago to Inle lake for 25$ per person (yangon bus) and he said imposssible to get better price for day time bus and there is only one bus. But as I seen the prices never reach even 20$, because later I took a bus from Yangon to Mandalay (VIP) for only 15$. So be careful and don't buy anything from them.

    They gave me a room near the reception. There was some music playing all night that started at 5pm and lasts until 5am. Walla are paper thin and you can hear it loudly along with motorbikes and people chatting. Bathroom reeps of sewage. Tiny room, overpriced. Good breakfast and friendly staff.

    The place to stay in Bago”
    We were welcomed at 4am and they gave us a room without charging us. Little room but comfy with good AC. Very good shower. Free hot/cold water to drink. Best breakfast in Myanmar so far (3 weeks). Location OK as no real center in Bago, not far from bus station. Cheap beer ans complimentary peanuts. Everyone very nice. Watchout: there's a guy ( red face with lots of spots) whose business card reads "Sea Sar" that owns a tourism agency in the bus station. He waits for every tourist bus and accompanies you to your hotel (which is nice, the bus stopped just in front of ours thanks to him). Then he tries to sell you tours, which are not bad value, but we ended paying a little more (12000Ks instead of 10000Ks) because the price agreed with us was different from the one told to the driver in Burmese. Also sells overpriced bus tickets.

    Don't believe other people's reviews”
    People are too picky about this place. You're paying 23 dollars a night for a private room with aircon, TV, private bathroom with hot water, breakfast was one of the best I've had in myanmar, and the staff were wonderful. My friend and I were prepared to be dissapointed by the looks of the reviews and we're pleasently surprised. No its not gonna be a five star hotel obviously, but from a backpackers point of view, if you want to stay in a nice private room for a good price, you really couldn't ask more. My friend and I are actually confused about why people would rate this place so badly? Thats the only reason I'm writing this review.
