Loved my stay here - it feels more like a guesthouse or a homestay than a hotel. The staff are helpful with giving advice and helping to arrange tours, but it's not at all like they're trying to sell you on something. When I booked the room, I emailed them asking about airport transfer; they said they could not arrange...

We stayed in a standard non air con room which at this time of year (April) was a bit uncomfortable. There was a wall fan which did not quite have the power to shift the air in the large room. More expensive air-conditioned rooms are available. Room was otherwise very nice. Large with 3 big windows with insect screens. Large...

This family run hotel was a lovely find. We stayed in a double room in the older part of the hotel with rattan/bamboo decor which made it feel authentic. There was no aircon in our room but we had a very effective fan above the bed. The air is a lot cooler at night so if you leave the windows...

We paid 15$ per person with my friend for a double room and it was so worth it. We just came back from our 3-day-trek and were feeling so tired and dirty so it felt good to have actually a warm shower and sleep in a soft bed. There was also free water, shampoo and shower cream. And breakfast was...

By far the best value hotel I stayed in during my 23 days touring Myanmar - a lovely pool, clean, well appointed room, friendly service, delicious breakfast - and all for only $25! Ok, there are posh rooms in the new block overlooking the pool which cost a lot more. But I tend to just sleep and wash in my...

This was a great hotel to stay in after the trek from Kalaw. It was brilliant to have the pool, which is in a pretty, relaxing garden. We paid extra for a junior suite to give us room to sort our stuff out. This comes with a big balcony looking over the pool and garden, with reclining chairs. Because we...

From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, the staff at Mingalar Inn were smiling, kind and helpful. They provided us with a welcome drink, allowed us to use the pool once we had checked out and then helped us catch our night bus. We enjoyed our stay in Inle - Thank you :)

After doing the Kalaw to Inle trek, we were looking forward to our stay at the Mingalar Inn (particularly the pool). It didn't disappoint and we enjoyed our stay immensely. Good breakfast and comfortable room. We stayed in Room 5 next to the pool - nice room but could do with a curtain over the entrance window to block a...

We booked this room months in advance of our trip. It was a "standard room" that we had booked at locations throughout Burma. We received an email from Agoda (we booked all our lodging through Agoda) while on the trip that I unfortunately missed for a few days because Wi-Fi is poor in many parts of Burma. The email told...

Thank you for review. Sorry for hear that. Hotel policy do not allow to meet other hotel guest(guest from other place) in the bed room. This is because of it can happen some problem. we have seen and happen already some problem before. So that is why hotel allow to meet guest only at reception. when you book from online...
