    Hotel Suggati

    The smartest hotel in Mawlamyine, and swish for anywhere in Myanmar, the riverfront Suggati has good-sized and very comfortable rooms – the most expensive have balconies and river views. All come with great beds, posh bathrooms and safety boxes. Staff are professional. Prices drop by 50% in the low season (June to October).

    Mawlamyaing Strand Hotel

    Four storeys of spacious and modern rooms with parquet floors and all the fixtures you'd expect from a business-class hotel. Despite the riverfront location, there are only partial river views from the rooms. A swimming pool has been under construction for the last three years; it might be finished by the time you arrive.

    Ngwe Moe Hotel

    The spacious, modern and well-kept rooms here are excellent value; the more expensive ones have decent river views. The staff are keen and helpful, while the expansive breakfast buffet sets you up for a day of sightseeing. There are KBZ Bank and CB Bank ATMs outside the lobby.

    Cinderella Hotel

    Rooms at this long-standing place are comfortable, spotless, tastefully decorated and well equipped, the staff solicitous and the breakfast one of the best in southern Myanmar. The one single room books out fast, as do all the rooms in high season (November to March).

    Breeze Guest House

    The Breeze has had an upgrade. Rooms are still old-fashioned but are clean and have better beds. The cheapest rooms are tight, fan only and share bathrooms. The best are very big with wood floors. It's a splendid riverfront location and this is where you'll find Mawlamyine's most knowledgeable guides. Bicycles/motorbikes (K3000/10,000 per day) can be hired.

    Old Moulmein Hostel

    Mawlamyine's only hostel, the Old Moulmein has very tight, windowless four-bed dorms, but they are clean, come with small lockers and the beds are good. There are two compact private rooms. The location by the bus station isn't ideal but it's a K1000 motorcycle taxi to Strand Rd's restaurants. English-speaking owner Jessica is amiable and helpful.

    Attran Hotel

    Looking its age now, the Attran has a prime riverfront location but the rooms are dated and dull. The more expensive are housed in bungalows and are large with river views; the cheaper ones are considerably smaller. The riverside bar is a passable spot for an evening libation.

    Pann Su Wai

    None of the rooms here are big – the singles are tight – and they get little natural light, but they're clean and come with OK bathrooms, making them a reasonable deal for the money. The friendly owner speaks English. There's no kitchen here, so no breakfast.

    OK Hotel

    As the name suggests, this is an OK budget option, although the dated, tiled-floor rooms aren't big and you'll get some street noise from the nearby market area. The cheapest singles are fan only and very small indeed. There's an attached teashop-restaurant.

    21 Paradise Hotel

    Rooms at this beachfront hotel are overpriced but this is currently the only place in Setse licensed to take foreigners. Rooms are big but plain. There's an attached restaurant and a not very clean swimming pool. It's at the far northern end of the beach.

    Holiday Villa Motel

    There's no reason to stay in Thanbyuzayat, but if you do, this hotel on the southern outskirts of town is the best option. Rooms are decent sized and come with comfy beds and modern bathrooms. It's about 2 miles south of Thanbyuzayat's clock tower.

    Than Lwin Seesar Motel

    It's not really a motel. Instead, it's a new riverfront hotel with compact but modern and clean rooms, some of which have river views. There's a small rooftop terrace, which is fine for an evening beer.

    Sandalwood Hotel

    The tile-walled rooms here are spacious and spotless, if old-fashioned, a tad institutional and wholly unremarkable. The staff are pleasant and can arrange cars for day trips.
