    Excellent”

    I booked a single room for one night and found myself in a gorgeous little room with a bath and cosy bed where I felt immediately at home. I had fallen ill while travelling and the staff were very helpful getting me medical assistance which had me feeling much better for my travels home. The location is behind a restaurant which has great food, and creates a buffer from the noise of the local traffic. A very peaceful and relaxing environment.

    The staff here is lovely, so welcoming and helpful. My room was small, but clean. And breakfast was not a buffet, but freshly made, including a fresh fruit smoothie. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Genesis Motel staff.

    Friendly staff and good breakfast”

    Staffs are friendly, room is small but enough for one woman to stay. In Kalaw, it gets so cold in early morning and night in Dec. and Jan, so it was good that they had a heater. For breakfast, I recommend honey pancakes and fresh juice.

    Fair stay in Kalaw”

    We booked a family room and it was clean. The only thing we didn’t like was that the bathroom was on a diffrent floor (on the other hand still private). There is no heating so in winter it can be very cold. The staff is very helpful!

    Great place to rest up before or after a trek. Breakfast is fabulous and the rooms are comfortable. We also liked the location - just off the busy main street and great restaurants within a 5-10 walk.

    Family runned guest house”

    The guest house is an old wooden colonial house - very beautiful. The room was clean and the breakfast great (fresh strawberry milk with pancakes). But the best was Cindy, the owner, who took really care of her guests and was willing to talk about her life in Kalaw in a very good English!

    Warmly welcomed with fresh breakfast in cozy areas. They really focus in services and made customers feel likes home. The owner can speak English very well and good manners. Her family business “7 Sisters” restaurant is next to the motel (highly recommended).

    Comfortable pre-trek stay”

    Genesis is more like a bed and breakfast than a motel- we were welcomed after a bus from Bagan with cold drinks and a cold towel, and breakfast was made for us prior to departing on our trek the following morning- the chocolate pancakes were delicious! Close to the Main Street and trekking offices. Enjoyed our night here.

    Genesis hotel is clean and very confortable rooms. The staff is so welcoming you feel home. They keep our breakfast until noon instead of 9am ! Cindy is perfect english speaking and will help you in anything you would need. Also good and fast laundry service. The hotel is situated just at the back of seven sisters, a really good restaurant. Do not hesitate to book a night in Genesis !

    Perfect Pre-Trek Rest”

    Wow! What an exceptionally sweet stay in this tucked away jewel behind the delicious Seven Sisters restaurant. Incredibly friendly, helpful staff, comfortable, clean and well appointed room, and the most generous, delicious breakfast. Honestly, I would return just for the breakfast. The traditional Shan noodles were a dream. This was the perfect place to prepare for my trek and I wish I'd had one more day just to relax. Highly recommended!

    Rather Expensive for 1 night stay”

    The place was difficult to find from the main road, as we came from near town where the night bus dropped us off. We had to look for a side lane to the back of the motel entrance and there wasn't any signs to lead us to the hotel. Pros: (1) Place is generally clean and the rooms are functional with a small bar fridge w/o aircon, as the Kalaw district weather is already cold outside (2) Staff is generally friendly and the young lady owner Phyu, was able to communicate very well in English. Cons: (1) Location is hard to find (as mentioned above) (2) Paid 1/2 day more for early check-in at 4am with breakfast, but they only made simple bread and toast for this breakfast (3) Breakfast was a disappointment after reading all the rave reviews about their home-made banana pancakes which was tasted normal. (4) They actually provide options for local Myanmar breakfast, but will not offer unless you asked in advanced (5) Toilet floor trap slow in drainage and floor flooded easily during baths
