The hotel is a little off the main drag, which means it's quieter (not pin-drop quiet) than many other hotels. It's close to several nice restaurants. The boat and driver the staff arranged for us was subpar. The driver was young and spoke very little English and seemed pretty disinterested in his job (he was on his phone all the... More

I arrived at 4:30am, and while no one was awake and I had no booking the staff woke up and gave me a room (without charging me for the night), and we're very accommodating. They also helped with arranging a boat tour of Inle Lake, and in general went out of their way to be helpful. Most of the staff... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Mingalar Inn earlier this month, but unfortunately I left a couple important items behind. The staff at the Inn were kind enough to set aside my package, but are unable to mail it to Canada from Nyaung Shwe. I am hoping another traveller staying at Mingalar might be able to pick up this...

Booked here to have access to a pool- much needed after a day out and about. But as one of the very few places offering this, they are able and do charge a substantial premium considering the room accomodation is relatively average. Stayed in the main block overlooking the pool- rooms are very large and light, but incredibly dated. A/C,... More

We paid 50 USD and stayed in the "Junior Suite" which had a balcony overlooking the pool. The pool was the only reason we wanted to stay in this place since it was a little above our budget. In short the staff were very friendly, the pool was great but the rooms were really dated. We arrived at 5 am... More

I stayed in a Junior Suite facing the pool and found it very comfortable and clean. The hotel is convenient located to some restaurants and only a few minutes walk to the market or the jetty. Very friendly staff! Recommended!

This place is divided in to two, $50dollar rooms in the new wing with a pool view or $35 in the old building with no view. We opted for the cheaper Room which was basic and backed onto another building, where there was a noisey family. staff were helpful on arrival. Breakfast was included which was eggs with toast, pancakes... More
