Convenient with everything I needed”
Clean, friendly staff, adequate breakfast. The room was small, but had everything I needed. There is a little balcony where you can sit outside. Was a bit noisy with other guests, but this didn't bother me too much.

basic hotel, but to expensive and bad breakfast ”
The hotel is basic, but the rooms ok for one night. The breakfast is not good. The served eggs are made in the microwave and are half liquid. I requested to make in a pan as an omlett, their excuse was they don't have a pan (unbelievable in asia). Only Toast and jam they served finally. Fruits they did not have. For a hotel that advertises bed and breakfast it's totally not enought and the unprofessional reaction I did not like. So I canceled the other night. It's a shame because of cancellation fee...

Low point ”
Penguin hotel was the low point of all the hotels we used in Myanmar. The bed was horrible. Cold water shower. Good A/C. Breakfast was minimal—poached egg, toast and instant coffee. Kawthoung is a dirty town that is best missed.

Good value for price. While it does have Air Conditioning it does not have hot water which is a bit weird. I would stay here again as it is a decent option for the area.

Kawthaung central budget guesthouse”
Advantage of being walking distance, some 10 mins from the boat jetty and in a local neighbourhood, this is a basic guesthouse, Myanmar-style, and where some of the few visitors overnighting stay.

Good value. Nice place.”
Pros: Easy walk to nearly everything. Staff are so kind! Breakfast included & served until 10. Cons: Bed felt like boxsprings only, without a mattress; manageable, but quite hard & uncomfortable. Small room, but met our travel needs. No water heater for shower (unnecessary in hot weather, but would have been appreciated as an option). Minimal menu options for lunch or dinner.

Best accommodation in town”
Right what we needed, perfect location with only few min walk from the pier/shops. Nice view from the window and the common balcony on the second floor. The cleanest room that we had in all Myanmar. We could check-in before check-in time. Lucky us, we didn't had many questions cause the stuff is not really speaking english. That's a pity, because in this location you need information if you just start your trip in myanmar.

We entered Myanmar by boat from Ranong and this was the cheapest accommodation option. Location is great if arriving by boat because it's a short walk to the hotel from the pier. Room and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was good. Staff were really nice. Can rent a motorbike for 20,000 kyat from reception.
