Best stay in Burma!”
This was a funny one. Booked it because we were tired of hostels - in Burma it's basically backpacker hostels or big weird military owned hotels, so it was nice to see some boutique hotels in Pyin Oo Lwin. Looked like a lovely place with a little hotspring bath, and no backpackers! Arrived to an almost empty hotel, but an incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Felt like royalty arriving in the taxi, staff came out and lined up to open doors and take bags. We were greeted by the manager, John, who (long story short) turned out to be the most interesting and friendly hotel manager I've ever met. Sat down with John for hours over the course of 3-ish days that we were there, just chatting about the history of Pyin Oo Lwin, Shan state, and the rest of Burma. A wonderfully caring man, always asking about our lives as well. Also hooked us up with a free, impromptu coffee producer tour! Loved this place, and loved John. Hope to see you again John!
Hi Zack, I wanted to thank you first for your very kind review you had written about me and our beautiful little property. It's no surprise that you did not expect that this place is a cool and comfortable retreat. We also keep it clean and protected avoiding all the complicated things so it's truly a place to live and sleep safe and sound. I'm proud to be host to you dear Zack though we know the differences in between culture and life styles, we feel a good sense of standard by talking to you. Our staffs got a lot of inspirations to speak and learn English at their work. We also hope you might get another chance in future to pay a visit again. I promise it will be very much more interesting than the previous one as you can do some magnificent trekking to a wild, green and beautiful river, down through jungles for three days and two nights. With best regards.
Extremely helpful staff and beautiful oasis”
This really is an oasis in the town of Pyin Oo Lwin. The staff were the most hospitable of anyplace i have ever been and went out of their way to help with our one year old baby. You can bike easily to the botanical gardens and town (10-15 min) so the location is fabulous, but the grounds are so relaxing you may want to stay! The japanese hot springs are also lovely on site ($5 per visit). The only complaint is the week we visited, there were few guests so breakfast was put out but not kept warm each morning. When mentioned, they individually heated our plates (wonderfully attentive staff!) but it still seems that to do A la carte with few guests or to keep a buffet warm is important. I would also suggest hot water kettles in the room for coffee and tea, since it is chilly, and we had to keep going back to ask for hot water. These are small issues, though, and overall the experience was fabulous. We will return!
Dear my precious guest, Warmest Greetings from Hotel AKIMOMI. We really appreciate when we see your kindness review and give high scores. We will organized for your advise for breakfast. All of the staff say 'hello' to you and your family. We hope that you have good health. Thank you so much for your love our hotel property and staff's service. We always welcomed your family when you have chance to visit our Pyin Oo Lwin. Have a nice day. Best Regards, AKIMOMI Team
Super helpful & beautiful setting”
We loved this hotel, as soon as we arrived we were attended to straight away, they helped us organise transport for our time in Pyin Oo Lwin & anything else we needed. The food at the restaurant was amazing!! The hotel itself was Japanese inspired & the restaurant did pretty good Japanese food, even with sake. Will definitely be going back the next time I’m in Pyin Oo Lwin!
Hi Georgia, First we'll have to say thank you very much for your kind review about us and the Hotel. We're so happy that our service is appreciated and the food at the Restaurant was good. Much of everything in the Hotel is of Japanese Culture and Tradition especially the Wooden Culture is made very special. And of course the food is all Japanese where Sake is offered too. May we thank you again and will definitely be looking forward for your next holiday to come again. Bye dear. With best regards, Hotel AKIMOMI.

Excellent customer service!!!”
It was one of the best stay in Myanmar! What made our stay so comfortable and cozy was their customer service. Thanks to Mr. John’s assistance who is originally from Pyin Oo Lwin, we’ve got to know what to discover and where to go, and communication went so smooth without any problems despite I had some troubles with payments which was totally my fault. His amazing knowledge about geography and history about the locality also fascinated us! Will definitely recommend this hotel, it worths for what you pay :)

i've been there with my lover. it might be on March”

Charming Resort with Helpful Staff”
We stayed at Hotel Akimomi for a longer period than our original booking because it was so pleasant. The grounds are beautifully done, room was cosy and comfortable, and best of all were the staff. The manager was always willing to help, and each day we looked forward to seeing Mr. John for conversation and guidance. Thank you for everything you were able to provide. Your insight Maymyo, your lovely hometown, added more to our stay. The restaurant downstairs is very nice during dinner time. I recommend eating outside if you're able as they have a well-appointed Japanese style izakaya setting there surrounded by greenery. The only issues to note was the weak shower pressure and proximity to Maymyo centre in the evening. The hotel is conveniently near the Taj, Pan Taw Win, and numerous other small businesses surrounding the lake. It would be great if the hotels all in the area (between the Gardens and City Centre) had a taxi or tuk tuk service available in the evening to get around easier. Still, neither of these are problems, but more of a suggestion -- the hotel is in a very quaint, quiet part of Maymyo that can feel isolated. A perfect retreat! Thank you again staff at Hotel Akimomi.
Hi dear Auralynn, How nice to hear from you after a period of time since you were here. As you had kindly recommend about our Hotel, we do thank you for the well appreciated words concerning with the services we had given for you during your stay.With my heart felt thanks, I promise I will try my best for all the service that I had made will be much more better in future. That's what the owner Dr.Khin Mg Htwe and Wife had been trying to accomplish for Responsible Tourism Jobs to be implemented here at Akimomi Hotel.The essential things will be fully repaired and upgraded now as it has turned five years of service. And it is being noticed well by us to keep our guests in the best of everything be in a state of conveniency. The Environmental Conservation works are also the works for Asean Green Hotel Standard award which we had received earlier. So may I say again Thank You Very Much to you dear Auralynn and be back soon again to AKIMOMI. Best wishes.
This hotel is very good and quiet if you want to stay in Pwin Oo Lwin with natural in Japanese style. I recommend.

near Botanical Garden, room not soundproof”
We stayed at Akimomi during the Tha Zaung Daing Festival weekend for 2 nights. The weather was cooling and fantastic. The room was small and good for up to two occupants only. There wasn't any additional space to add extra bed anymore if you wanted to. Hot water supply was Ok, which was important at cool climate area. The worst thing thing was the guestroom entrance door. It has louver on the door and thus not soundproof! You could hear every bit of noise made by anyone outside the room. Very bad idea and doesn't make sense at all. Another annoying source of noise came from the water droplets falling onto the metal roofing sheet of the building. The noise spoilt the entire secluded atmosphere of the hotel at midnight. Clay roof tiles should have been installed instead of metal hoarding sheet. This was a very poor decision in construction stage. However, the hotel staff must be complimented for their hospitality and friendliness. They even started the breakfast buffet one hour earlier for us in the morning when we informed them that we would need to check out very early the next day.
Dear my valued guest, Warmest Greetings from Hotel AKIMOMI. We are pleased to thank you for your review. We really sorry for your inconvenience about our hotel construction. We place in order at Japanese architect for construction. As our hotel is the japanese style hotel, so rooms and situation is like japan. And the door and window are made for air. If available the chance you have, we always welcomed you to our hotel with best wishes. Best Regard, AKIMOMI Team
I personally like the clean rooms and the great use of space. Love the personal space of walk-way outside the Family Rooms as I venture around the compound. Makes me feel like home. If travelling with big family, I'd definitely choose the Family Room for peace of mind of having everyone under the same roof such as kids and perhaps in-laws, yet it still gives you the privacy as and when you need once you close the connecting door. The in-house hot spring is something to snuggle within the property should we just want to laze around in hotel (Perhaps a plus point during rainy season). I love the décor of the garden with the swing dangling from the tree (a sure plus point for my kids to stay at this hotel) and the small little bridge, pond and outdoor dining area that makes you feel like you are home away from home. The staff are wonderful and ever friendly and ready at your service. With its close location to night food street and many other attractions nearby, it sure is a 5* for me.
Dear Ms. Kim, Warmest Greetings from Hotel AKIMOMI. Firstly, we are very appreciate when we see your review about our hotel.

Lovely place! Very good experience for the most part! I would highly recommend not eating dinner at Hotel! Had a bad experience! Staff very friendly yet quite aloof! Excellent dining nag within short walk at The Taj! Great Indian food! Also Feel! Very good cuisine as well!! Both on lake with lovely views!
Warmest Greeting from Hotel AKIMOMI. We are pleased to thank you for your reviews. We are really glad that you like our properties and services. We hope that we would like to meet again next time. Hotel AKIMOMI Team.
Eveything is Japanese standard. probably it is a bit far from downtown but quite near for those British colonical houses. You can ask hotel staff to arrange a tour guide for you. I am truly satisfied with this hotel.
Warmest Greetings from Hotel AKIMOMI. We are pleased to thank you for your kind review and comments.

nice place with beautiful garden”
small room in beautiful location, between „downtown“ and bot. garden, bikes to rent, a few restaurants around, one with good original myanmar coffee, but be aware, when raining, the drops on the tin roofs can be pretty annoying.

We always welcomed you to our hotel if you have chance to visit Myanmar. Have a nice day. Best Regards, AKIMOMI Team
Problematic water heater and housekeeping service ”
We were the only guest when we stayed at hotel, but there was no enough service for water heater. For instance, hot water stopped working in the middle of shower even for one single guest. So another guest had to take cold shower in the cold weather. And we had to ask housekeeping service to clean the room though we booked the room earlier. When we clarified why room was not provided with housekeeping service though we were out the whole day, one of the staff said that we need to inform the reception if we need housekeeping service. For us, it is the first time we have ever heard of this reply from hotel service. However, we truly appreciate your permission to our request for early check in. And generally hotel staff are quite nice and helpful. Just only thing to suggest is the way they manage the service in the hotel to be considered even though we were the only guest to that hotel. Thank you.
Dear my valued guest, Warmest Greetings from Hotel AKIMOMI. We are pleased to thank you for your review. If you need your room for housekeeping service, you can ask at the reception before you going outside. Because, some of the guest don't want their room for housekeeping. So, they have many complaint. We always welcomed you to our hotel. Have a nice day. Best Regards, AKIMOMI Team

Beautiful Hotel...but I was extremely unfortunate”
This hotel is beautiful. I have stayed there several times but since the last time, will NEVER again. I received a room on the first floor. The room was neat, but had a strong smell of mold. I resolved to put up with it for one night. In the middle of the night, light from the window awakened me. I shifted in my bed, and was bitten on my ear by something in the bed with me. When I sat up I saw a large rat run run across the floor and into the bathroom. The shower drain emptied directly outside, allowing large rodents to enter/exit freely. I was suitably horrified. The few staff working in the middle of the night managed to change me to another room. One staff member was completely indifferent about my experience. Later, another staff member called me to apologize and offered to prepare me a “special dinner” that evening as compensation. They were very disappointed that I already had plans and had to reject the special dinner.
Dear my valued guest, We really sorry for about that. When you are here several time and you are happy at our hotel. But, We know this is the first time to disappointed for you. We unfortunate that happened of rat. We hope that is unexpected error and then you forgive us. If you want to come to our hotel, we always welcomed you with our best wishes. Have a nice day. Best Regards, AKIMOMI Team
