We stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. The hotel is in a great location close to good food and bars, in a relaxed traveler area. The family that runs this place is so very helpful.

Not the most modern place to stay, but what really makes this place fantastic is the extremely helpful and welcoming host family.

We stayed here last month. We rode a bus from Yangon to Inle and arrived at the hotel at 4am. I think this is a family owned establishment where in the staff are all relatives/part owners. Spacious rooms with fast internet, unlimited coffee, complimentary water and a well thought out breakfast. Thanor (?), the main female staff is very helpful...

We had a spacious room upstairs with a large balcony and ok bathroom. Breakfast was very good. WiFi worked fairly ok, but as we...

The rooms here are not cheap, as the standard maintained in this hotel is quite high. They take good care of the guests, and the rooms are very cozy with wooden finishing. It's a great place to stay during your visit to Inle Lake. It's located close to the main market area as well.

Staff was very friendly and helpful, booked a boat...
