This is a great place. But what made the most impression on us was the couple that owned it. They really showed true and honest caring for all their guests and their neighborhood. They go the extra mile to make you feel at home. We stayed in the "new" section right in front of the pool which was nice and... More

A friend and I shared a large room decorated with bamboo shoots and umbrellas. We had our own bathroom as well, with AC. This cost us about $15 per person a night. The beds were quite comfortable, decent showers and bathrooms! Breakfast was hearty and included, this had pancakes, toast, eggs, and fruit. The pool that is pictured requires extra... More

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

We stayed in a junior suite in the new building for 3 nights. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the room was big, nice, and clean, it had a beautiful view over the pool, and the location was close to lots of restaurants, shops, etc. Every day when we got back from outings we were greeted with a "welcome...

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

We stayed here for only 1 night because our main purpose was to visit Inle Lake for the day. Room had AC, was very spacious & clean. We had a balcony which was great to lounge & enjoy the view of garden area/street below. Wifi was great speed as we were able to Skype family members. Bathroom wasn't fancy but... More
