          It really is this good!”

          The staff, the beds, oh, did I mention the staff?

          There is a simple reason why the Blue Bird Hotel comes out so well in all reviews - it really is that good! Having stayed in some very high end hotels around Asia, what the Blue Bird lacks in size, and in some ways facilities, it more than makes up for with the warmth of welcome and the friendly attentiveness of the staff. For the staff performance alone, this hotel is probably the best I have ever stayed in, and particular mention should be made of the reception staff who greet you with a friendly smile and then quickly become your friend and fixer, sorting out trips, booking taxis and ensuring that your every need is catered for. Whilst there, we also met the owners, a Swiss gentleman and his Burmese wife, and they too go out of their way to make the stay memorable. We especially liked our room with mosquito covered beds that we sank into most comfortably after days out visiting the temples and other sites. Though a small hotel, we found the food in the restaurant, though not extensive in choice, to be of a high quality with obvious effort made to source fresh produce and immaculate presentation. Like the town of Bagan, the hotel is quiet, but this relaxing atmosphere suited our requirements perfectly. I know the owner has plans to add facilities to the hotel and I hope that we can return to sample the additions. I would not think to try another hotel in Bagan - even the highest end ones there would struggle to compete with the Blue Bird! Going to Bagan? Stay at the Blue Bird and enjoy Burmese hospitality at its finest!

          Boutique hotel with a deserved reputation”

          We just returned from a 2-night stay at the Blue Bird Hotel in Bagan. The hotel is situated on the edge of New Bagan, and is perfectly situated for those people who want to tour the area. This hotel will suit people of all ages, with or without children. The rooms are spacious and clean and the beds and linens are equal to the best hotels. We've lived in Thailand for the last 10 years know this isn't always the case with Asian hotels where beds can sometimes be so hard that sleeping is difficult for those not used to sleeping on tile floors. The food is fantastic and we ate at the hotel both nights. The menu isn't extensive, but is sufficiently varied that there will be something for everyone. Prices are very reasonable and the wines are actually cheap considering the quality. Do not leave unless you've tried the bottle gourd soup and the chocolate soufflé. We ordered a bottle of wine each night and ate 3 course meals for $50 to $60. The staff is really exceptional and it is clear that the owners have made pleasing guests the ultimate priority. Each day when we returned to the hotel someone was there to hand us a cool towel and cold glass of water. Phillipe, the owner, happened to be there during our stay and it was obvious that he's a professional and tuned to the needs of his guests. My wife casually mentioned something that she liked the day of our arrival and this was presented to us as a gift on our departure. That's paying attention and it speaks to the way this hotel is run in all aspects. We couldn't recommend it more. As for sightseeing in Bagan, we rented two small electric scooters from a local couple immediately outside our hotel and spent several hours each day exploring. The roads are dusty, slightly pot-holed and some of the back roads can be a bit challenging for novice riders like ourselves, but we would recommend this mode of travel for anyone that is comfortable on two wheels (we're pushing 60). The young or fit can also rent ped

          The friendly staff, the beautiful room and shower, the quiet area

          We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bird in Bagan in May 2014 in New Bagan. A good location, clean, garden atmosphere, very friendly staff and beautiful rooms. The area is very quiet as well. We arranged for an airport pick up which was nice as the hotel provides a air conditioned luxury car to pick up in. Upon arrival, staff immediately greets you with a refreshing towel and drink. The room was nice and large, a beautiful bathroom. Wifi in in room was spotty (though this can be said for the whole city). Electricity is also spotty (especially when it rains). All payments are typically made in cash (and often required in local currency). The hotel offers bikes for free (which we did on one day), though I would recommend taking the E-Bike option instead (about $15USD for the day). The distances between pagodas can be long and with the heat an E-Bike works out as a better option in the long-run. After a long day, the rain shower at Blue Bird made our choice to stay here all the more worth it (though when the power goes out, so does the shower pump so beware of this). There is also a DVD player in the room and plenty of DVD options in the reception area which is nice. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant on two occasions. The food is good but options are limited. Don't forget your bug spray! Breakfast options were nice as well. I would recommend this hotel to other travelers.

          One of our Bagan highlights”

          Wonderful Staff, Beautifully Designed, Delicious Food

          I've been meaning to write this review ever since our trip to Myanmar, and I can't believe it took this long. I'm ashamed. To everyone at Bluebird - I'm so sorry! Staying here was probably one of the most enjoyable experiences of being in Bagan, (and this is coming from a person who always prioritizes cultural experience over accommodation, though luckily I was traveling with someone who is the opposite in this case), simply because staying here can be likened to nothing but an oasis. The hotel itself is beautiful, and everyone to the staff to the owners themselves are so approachable. After some chats with the owner and her husband (the former being from Burma/Myanmar herself, and the latter from France), discovered that she actually designed it all herself! A very talented, thorough and organized lady, she has been trained around the globe and made sure that every single detail in her hotel is perfect: from the mix of eclectic and traditional menu/drinks, to the garden, even the rooms themselves. With greenery and flowers everywhere, I couldn't help but wake up with a smile every time I walked outside and sipped on a wonderfully fresh cup of coffee. If you get the chance - try the tiramisu cocktail. And I really just can't can't say enough about the staff. They were all so wonderfully kind to me and Erin. So helpful and accommodating, they answered every question that we had with a smile and gave great suggestions for local sites/vendors. Erin had to book a really last minute bus back to Yangon to catch a flight, and they did absolutely everything they could to make it all work (and it did). We couldn't be more grateful. Wish I could name names - but then this review would be too long! My only complaint is its location, though this is unavoidable with UNESCO building laws halting construction in Old Bagan. NB is developing a vibe of its own besides, and we just loved staying at Blue Bird. To be honest, Erin and I miss all their smiling faces.

          The service is fantastic!”

          The grounds of the Blue Bird were beautiful and well maintained. Our room was large, as was the bathroom. However, what made our stay truly wonderful was the extraordinary service the owners and staff provided! Whether it be having a proposed itinerary for us upon arrival, or arranging for e-bikes, or confirming our balloon rides (if it is in budget, well with the expense), arranging for our bus from Bagan to Mandalay (and they arranged for pick up at Blue Bird to delivery at our hotel in Mandalay), suggesting places to stay on our next leg, the staff was wonderful. And they were all kind and attentive. The pool was well maintained (as good as I've seen anywhere. Then there are the cocktails, if you are so inclined, in theevening. They were wonderful! We learned each was a creation of the owner, who also happens to be a mixologist. Should we return to Bagan, it will be the Blue Bird.
