Mr Charles Guest House and Hotel, Hsipaw Myanmar, The North East
Mr Charles Guest House and Hotel is a warm welcome on your trekking adventure. This family-managed business offers great hospitality, decent facilities and a really good breakfast.
You’re likely to be here to join your guided trek but during your stay you can also visit the neighbouring villages, take a boat cruise down the Dotthawaddy River, or cycle through the valleys at your leisure. Don’t miss the unforgettable sunset from on high at Nine-Buddha Hill. The vibe at Mr. Charles Guest House and Hotel is vibrant and personable, with trekkers relaxing and chatting in the common room.
In the hotel, the rooms are basic, clean and functional: choose from a standard, superior, deluxe, or junior suite room. All are air conditioned with comfortable beds, rain showers and free Wi-Fi. The larger room types have TVs, safe deposit boxes and fridges.
This is a simple, hostel-like place and not for everyone but if your focus is on trekking then it’s a decent and comfortable base.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!
We enjoyed a 3 week trip exploring both the well known places as well as the less developed areas. We also balanced the trip with a variety of walks and activities as well as time for several half day breaks to relax. The Myanmar people are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The colours of the country are outstanding, wonderful dusty landscapes with rice fields and palm trees as well as so many amazing pagodas rich in colour and symbolism. Our best parts were the less well known places but Lake Inle and Bagan are must do places and are still not overrun by tourists. Experience Travel Group tailored a trip for our needs and knew how to do so and suggest appropriate hotels and means of travel.
