Owner has no respect for clients and has only one interest-suck as much money as she possibly can out of you! I see other reviews saying otherwise but I assure you there are nicer places to stay at the same price if not cheaper. Small town and easy to get around if you rent bicycles(think we paid a dollar a... More

Having looked at reviews for this hotel it was not my first choice but we had to book in. Asked for a transfer from the airport, this was waiting for us on arrival. Driver very helpful and friendly. Stayed in the original building on the first floor. Rooms made of wood so a little dark, but clean and tidy. Shower... More

The rooms here are very nice, even the cheaper ones, and the breakfast is excellent. They serve it on the lovely balcony which catches the rays of the morning sun to warm you up after the chilling nights on the lake. We personally found the grandmother of the family who run this place to be the most helpful and warm.... More

It would appear that being Lonely Planet's "top recommendation" has made the owners of this place avaricious. Not only were the rooms over-priced but everything else was double the cost of anywhere else in town for exactly the same service, e.g. hiring a bike or taking a boat ride. This money-grabbing vibe really spoiled the atmosphere of the place. The... More

Its true the owner is a bit strange and aggressive, but after dealing with her with a firm hand the staff are fine, our room was very dark and old , things didn' t really work and was a bit of a mosquito haven. Go for the upper rooms where there's a breeze. Breakfast was average.good view from the upper... More

We are also surprised by some of the negative reviews here. We found the Teakwood a lovelyplace to stay close to Inle Lake. We paid $60 dollars for a new bungalow which was admittedly the most expensive of our stay but we had a massive room, air con/heating (a plus for the chilly nights) and a spacious well appointed bathroom....

I checked in after a three day trek from Kalaw as it was the only available room I managed to book over the phone. They asked for $50 for a single room! When I got there I was asked to confirm and pay in advance the three nights I booked. I didn't. The room was small with stained sheets cover... More

Well, nothing great to say about this place. A pity really because this guesthouse is rather nice and cozy. BUT the owner (a Chinese woman) treats guest like dirt. I've traveled a lot in Asia, I've never hated a place so much. Someone here says that to like this woman you should get to know her. Sorry but I'm a... More

This Guesthouse looks lovely from the outside. Then we met the owner. Even as we were getting out of the taxi she was demanding our money up front (this hadn't happened anywhere else in Myanmar). I asked to see our room before paying and she was very put out. The rooms are clean and our AC worked well. That was... More

I'm actually really surprised by everyone else's reviews on here - not so much about the pushy owner who is actually a really lovely lady if you take the time to get to know her (anyway if you found her tough then try going to India when they don't take no for an answer!!) but about the cleanliness and breakfasts?!...
