bagan central hotel

after a long ride from Yangon to Bagan, i thought that any flat surface in an enclosed room would make a good sleeping spot. until we reached the hotel that we're staying, it was a surprise. i expected a hostel that would put us in one hot dorm-type room. it was the other way around.
a place with a decently designed lobby and bungalows inside a spacious compound brought in excitement. instead of running to our beds at 2:00am, we opted to order for coffee and requested if we can stay longer in the open space. as if we didn't lack sleep.
since the staff were about to sleep, they requested us to move to the space near our rooms. spent some time chatting, deciding what to do the next day. no particular itinerary but just to take a short walk around New Bagan. 
we rented for three rooms with air-condition. cost per room was USD38 with television, two beds and spacious room and a light breakfast meal. our guide in Yangon indeed made a good recommendation. 

good points for this hotel:
- spacious rooms with TV, air-condition and each rooms have toilet
- spacious and relaxing open dining area
- safe area and is just along the main road 
- hotel can arrange van for tour or as transpo within Bagan

Bagan Central Hotel was a wonderful surprise. The rooms are a bit dark though for a mum who's got so much to do for her toddler but the huge floor space made up for it!

The whole place looks quaint. Para siyang retreat house. I'm sure it has great vibes.
