        Nice stay”

        Good location. Helpful staffs.

        We stayed in Aye Yar River View Resort for 2 nights in a pool view room. Room decoration,the garden, the pool and the view over the river look great and relaxing especially after a long hot day traveling around the desert. We rented e-bikes for 8$/day at hotel reception. The location of the hotel is great (5 minutes to Ananda, 10 minutes to Shwe San Daw for sunrise/sunset, and lots of pagoda, stupa to visit within riding distance). The hotel also helped us to book taxi to the airport at 10$. When we just arrived Bagan by bus, we took a horse cart to the hotel at 9000 kyats which was also a lovely experience. Definitely stay again when we come back to Bagan.

        The Aye Yar River View Resort in Bagan is a gret place to stay. A most wonderful location at the river, stunning facilities, garden, pool and breakfast, attentive, friendly and supportive staff, a wonderful experience. Not the cheapest place to stay but great value for your money. We get around by rented e-bikes and horse-carts, the hotel is in the middle of the pagoda park. I would highly recommend this resort

        Perfect base for exploring Old Bagan”

        Overall property, location, pool

        At the price we paid, I feel Aye Yar was a fantastic choice. I really enjoyed our stay here -- the property is very well-kept and the location is perfect. From the hotel you can rent e-bikes to explore the entire area. Don't expect to be able to walk anywhere, though. Room was very nice. Bathroom was as well, no complaints about the room at all. Staff was very helpful. I think my only complaint is that when you ask them to call a taxi for you (you'll need one to go to Nyuang U or New Bagan at night if you want) is that they use expensive private taxis, about $15 r/t. Not that bad but sucks when you're paying more for taxi than your meals. But bottom line I was extremely happy about staying here while in Bagan. Would definitely stay here again...wouldn't even think about any of the other choices. Important Tip: Change your money to the local currency!! The exchange rate was 1300:1 while I was there. You'll only get 1000:1 at most places if you use USD...that's 30% you're losing!! I was pretty dumb for not realizing this for a couple days. Wish the staff could've said something. This is in contrast to Cambodia where you can use USD without losing any value.

        Near to the main sight seeing attractions, good pool, nice restaurant

        The hotel was very nice and we enjoyed staying there. It is next to old Bagan and it is very easy to visit the tempels. The pool was the nicest in the area and the restaurant was very good also including the buffee breakfast. The room was also very spacy and we had a nice view to the garden and the river. The staff tried to be helpful but they were not as frindly as they were in other hotels in Myanmar. Nevertheless they arranged a late check out for us as my child was sick which was very nice gesture. The credit card did not work at all, which is a minus. All in all we enjoyed very much staying in Aye Yar River View Resort and found it one of the best hotels in the old Bagan. Highly recommendable.

Room was very clean and spacious, shower was great and beds very comfortable. People were all very genuine and nice! The lady at the reception helped us with our booking of tour guide and driver, spas and booking of tickets back to yangon with JJ express. The hotel offers rental of e-bikes. My advice is to pick up a book of lonely planet, rent a electronic bike (about 8USD for one whole day) and bring along a good camera to explore Bagan and it's 3122 pagodas :) thank you lovely people at Aye Yar Riverview!

        I enjoyed my stay at the Aye Yar River View .. I was VERY hot (over 40 degrees) every day and the large pool provided welcome shelter during the hottest part of the day .. The rooms were comfortable and cool with teak floors and marble bathrooms ... Book at horse cart at the front gate to see the pagodas ( about 5 kyat an hour ... Early mornings and late afternoons are best ... There is also a small village to the right of the front gate that runs down along the river .. Good for local 'snacks' etc

        Attention to Detail”

        Located in old Bagan, on the river and 10 minute stroll from some more famous temples, you choose Ayr River view for the location. But it offers more than that. The gardens are delightful to stroll around, the pool is refreshing, and the spa restoring after a long day of climbing pagoda steps in the heat. But what a stood out for me was the service. I hold my hand over my morning coffee to ward off a fly and within seconds I am offered a paper cover. I take out mosquito spray in the evening, and immediately the staff bring a mosquito coil. When I asked for a low tourist destination to view the sunset, the front desk offered several smaller temples with great views. The only negative, was the restaurant. Limited breakfast and overpriced dinner. Better to eat in town. Nevertheless, an all sround excellent experience. PS. I had a deluxe river view room. It was worth the extra money.

Also ordered via hotel taxi driver guide over Bagan - the driver was really nice and tried to show me everything that I need to know about Bagan.

        First visit to Bagan”

        Location, standard and services

        We would normally stay in hotels cheaper than this but as this was our first visit to Myanmar we were unsure of the standards. The hotel was beautiful set in large grounds next to the river but close to the temples. We had the cheapest room which was large with a lively balcony overlooking the temples, some rooms had a pool view. The pool was large if a bit chilly with plenty of sunbeds, towels etc. We only ate breakfast in the hotel preferring to walk 10-15 minutes to the main road where there were some excellent small restaurants selling great Local food which was also very cheap. We rented e bikes from the hotel which was only slightly more expensive than down the road but it was convenient and enjoyed 2 days of biking from temple to pagoda to temple. Bagan is amazing and well worth a visit, I am sure it will not remain so little influenced by tourism for long

        We had 3 enjoyable nights at Aye Yar River View, the rooms were nicely fitted out, the pool area was gorgeous and common areas were really nice with a nice view of the river. Breakfast could've been better with food running out often and choice were ok and the staff need a little more training for a resort of its stature and the price range it sits at. Things were either very slow or the staff just never got round to doing what we requested like checking for boats and buses etc.

        Nice rooms...good location and wonderful breakfast.

        I didn't get a chance to enjoy the pool area but that appeared to be a plus as well. Nice stay. Had views of some of the temples that were lit up at night in old Bagan. This is considered one of the higher end resorts in the area and have to say it was. Meals sort of expensive compared to other areas but you pay for luxury. You definitely have to walk a ways to find other alternative eating places so taxi/bike/pony car are best modes of transportation unless you are good with maps and like to walk in the dark. For whatever reason my WiFi didn't work within the room. I didn't follow up though either so don't know why.

        A quiet oasis”

        Relaxing, great views and close to temples

        The staff were delightful and couldn't do enough to make our stay so comfortable. Food in the restaurant was good value, particularly the local curries and salads. We had a lovely room overlooking the river, so we enjoyed our balcony just watching life go by. We also loved being in old Bagan, where there were temples a short stroll away, and even a 12C one in the garden. Easy to hire bikes to get around to the museum and the archeological sites. The pool was a cool oasis after a hot day out and about. It was low season, so there only seemed to be about 20 people staying in the hotel, but all services were available. Wifi in the rooms and the lobby was a bonus, as was early check in and late check out.

        Excellent stay”

        Very comfortable resort right near the temples

        The stay wad very pleasant, we enjoyed the pool while not being at the temple site, I believe it wad nice to stay in Old Bagan instead pf New Bagan or Nyanung U because we were right there at the temples, we rented a bicycle from the hotel (1USD/hour, if whole day, take if from the seller right outside hotel gates). The pool, breakfast, room, everything wad great. The only minuses were that there wsd no gym (we need one) and the restaurant is expensive, which makes you go to other places, which do not really exist (at least 1km walk to the nearest and more to the next to nearest).
