Thanlwin Hotel, Mawlamyine
Thanlwin Hotel, Mawlamyine

The Thanlwin hotel is a colonial style building which resembles a run down version of the old Raffles hotel in Singapore. If it's colonial charm and character that you want, then the Thanlwin hotel is definitely the place to stay in Mawlamyine. Rooms are quite basic however and you can choose either fan or air condition rooms with beds having traditional mosquito nets drawn down from above. Only two rooms in the hotel have attached bathrooms; all other rooms require the use of shared bathroom facilities. If you choose to stay upstairs, then your room opens up to a balcony from where you'll see nice sunsets across the Thanlwin river.

The Thanlwin hotel is located midway between the two town centres of Zeigyi (near the waterfront) and Zeigyo (near the highway bus station) so the location is a little inconvenient although public transport to the town centre is readily available from the main road.
