In spite of the rotten, or rather, nearly non-existent Rangoon (Yangon) infrastructure, the Motherland Inn 2 offers a surprising amount of comfort for a small price. The location, somewhat away from the city center, did not bother me at all, nor apparently the rest of the guests, because transportation is readily available outside, or arranged by the inn, or as in my case, the walk from there to the city center is an adventure in itself. I can't but recommend the hotel, if for nothing else, the caring and wonderfully friendly, ever-present personnel. When in Rangoon, this will be, hands-down, my place of choice to stay. Breakfast, Western or Burmese (the latter requires pre-ordering the day prior) is included. Laundry service as well as Internet (best after 9pm) is available, as is airport pick-up
From there I did a day-trip to Bago
Excellent Breakfast Included
Fron Bagan I went to Mt. Popa(day-trip) with an English speaking driver, arranged by the hotel
NOTE: There are two Thande Hotels, this is the one you want, in Old Bagan
