The last time I visited Inle Lake was in 1984. Accommodation choices were very limited and quite rustic. A lot has happened since, yet the staff at Min Ga Lar Inn portrayed the same friendliness and warmth first encountered 3 decades ago. The range and growth of hotels is rapidly expanding. Multi storey concrete blocks now compete with traditional teak... More

This is a very nice place and has various room options that you can select from. Since, I was traveling alone I liked the room with the lowest fare good enough for me. It was clean, cool enough and since I had to spend a night only at Nyaungshe. There was a pool to be used if you took the... More

Ok, the rooms are a bit primitive, but the staff is lovely, the breakfast is very good, they have a nice pool, but there are somethings that stop this from being a perfect stay, first as mentioned - you can certainly find nicer rooms in Nyaungshwe, and many better places to hang out (the layout really isn't all that conducive...

We met some amazingly nice people when we were in Myanmar - it seems everyone in the country is adorable, but the staff here took the biscuit, even coming out to wave us off when we left. Thanks for a great stay guys! The hotel itself is very nice. We stayed on the cheaper side (meaning we couldn't use the... More

5-star rating for its great service and helpful owner and staff. I arrived in Nyaungshwe (Inle Lake) at 3 in the morning. After walking around the town, this is the only hostel that is accessible (having a door bell), and the only one whose staff were excitedly open the door for me and wake the owner up. The owner couple,... More

This place has a brand new pool, one of only two in town. The staff were very friendly and the breakfasts were fantastic and huge. We stayed in an upstairs suite with balcony. The decor was out-dated but the room was spacious and air-conditioned. For $50, this place was great value.

Very pleased with this place. Great standard for Myanmar. Edible (and plentiful) breakfast, serviceable wifi connection, and a good location close to all you need in the town. The staff were very helpful and pleasant, and nothing seemed like too much trouble. The room was huge and had comfortable chairs, bed and great natural light. There's also a book exchange... More
