6/10 Good

Overall, the Hotel is very nice. The rooms need some upkeep/maintenance, especially the showers. Power outlet instructions in the rooms need to be updated - I was totally confused about where I could or could not charge my cellphone. The staff were very pleasant and helpful! :-)

Great staff!
My friend and I stayed here recently and cannot rate it highly enough. My friend got very sick while we were in Bagan (taken to hospital etc) and the staff were so amazing and accommodating. They organized a doctor to come to the hotel, bought special food to the room for my friend and were always checking how she was. They even sorted out our ebike for us (my friend was taken by ambulance from a pagoda at sunrise and we had to leave the bike behind). Beyond the amazing staff, the pool area is so nice and relaxing, the food is good, and it's very clean. Would definitely recommend!

Best hotel I stayed in in Southeast Asia
I can't gush enough about this hotel. The staff were excellent, they helped me with work stuff, scanning etc. I never opened my own door. There were issues with some of my scans, so they let me keep the room late. They arranged sunrise transport when I arrived on the overnight bus. The pool was excellent. No matter what I asked for, they brought one point I thought I should ask for a pony, just to see what would happen. I loved this hotel. I usually stay in cheaper hotels, but someone recommended this in Lake Inle. This is a 5 star hotel, masquerading as a moderately price inn. Go there!

10/10 Exceptional

Comfortable, clean, and a great value.
The Arthawka is a pleasant property, in a great location. It's pronounced "aw-tock-uh" locally, so if you are heading in from the pier, bus station, or airport remember that as it will be easier to explain to the driver picking you up. We wanted to be in New Bagan, and a little out of the "scene," so this was perfect. All of the staff are friendly, and try to go out of their way to be as helpful as possible. A few of the staff speak English well enough that we never had any language barrier issues at all. The room was comfortable, and clean. Daily housekeeping services were detailed and and didn't leave any room for complaint. It was nice to have fresh fruit left in the room occasionally, and new water bottles every day as well. WiFi worked in the room, the lobby, and by the pool. Note: it's not exactly the broadband you're probably used to, but for casual browsing/posting etc. it works fine. A couple of times I lost a connection and called down to the front desk where they were happy to reset the router and it was restored in a few minutes. The pool was a pleasant temperature, and there were plenty of lounge chairs surrounding it. Fresh pool towels were stacked by the entrance to the pool. I did feel there was too much chlorine in the pool, but it didn't stop me from using it for midday siestas at the peak heat of the day. Overall, this is a well run and comfortable property, and a great value for your stay in Bagan.
