Set in pretty gardens on a quiet and dusty road on the outskirts of Mandalay, the Shwe Taung Tarn Hotel’s great attraction is the little swimming pool part-shaded by palms. With just 14 rooms this boutique hotel will never feel too overcrowded.

The most affordable of Mandalay's new boutique hotels; the hotel has a restaurant, swimming pool and simply decorated bedrooms with Burmese style finishing touches. It is not centrally located (about 3 miles from the downtown area) but the sprawling nature of Mandalay makes it a hard city to identify a true centre anyway.

The hotel has two blocks (A block and B block) - we much prefer the B-block rooms, which have wing-doored balconies with wooden loungers whereas the A-block rooms are nearer the road and lack balconies. All rooms have smart, locally flavoured decor touches and each room is kitted out with a flat-screen cable TV, an electric kettle and a seating area. Boasting pool and garden views, each room has an en-suite with corner bathtubs (and shower over bath). They are not luxurious but will satisfy the traveller that is looking to spend less on hotels during their stay in Myanmar.

The hotel is a 10-minute drive from Zaygyo Market and a 15-minute drive from Mandalay Palace. Mandalay International Airport is 35 km away.
