The breakfast area in the second floor terrace is a good location for seeing the locals unloading large baskets of vegetables from the canal. The room was dusty and the floor needs some sweeping when I checked in. They require guests to leave their slippers/shoes before the stairs, so it's hard not to notice if the floor is dirty. The...

We stayed 2 nights at the Joy Hotel. Location is interesting. In the morning, during the LONG wait for breakfast, we watched the longboats docking in the canal across the road, unloading large baskets of vegetables. Men would carry the large baskets of tomatoes or melons from there to the markets around town. Our room was clean. There was sometimes... More

The rooms were basic, but the beds were comfortable. The the shower was not clean and very dark, but hot. Quite a few bugs roaming around in the room too. Staff was not overly friendly or helpful, and breakfast was mediocre at best. You can find nicer places for the same price if you walk around a bit.

We were only able to stay at joy for 1 night as they were fully booked the next day. However, we enjoyed our stay. We paid $18 for a massive room for 2 people. The room was fan (didn't need aircon). It had a tv (didn't work too well though) but impressively had a fridge which was nice for keeping... More

We were looking for a place to stay in Nyaungshwe for couple of days, and we went to Joy. ( the only available when we searched.) The location is not so bad ( there is delicious coconut fried cake 2 streets from there), and the room are quite clean, but the staff makes it bad. Actually, not all the staff,... More

Very interesting in deed. Breakfast is good .They also rent bicycles. The staff is very friendly. I booked 4 nights... More

The budget room is basic but has all the necessary items : big enough, with a window, two beds, one table and chair and a fan. The shared showers had hot to lukewarm water and were clean enough. Breakfast on the terrace was lovely and the location next to the canal made it a really good spot for people-watching.

Nothing exceptional, but solidly clean and the staff is very friendly. There's a nice balcony and they seem to keep their fair prices, even though they're in the lonely planet. Recommended for backpackers!

Stayed 3 nights in a twin beds room. The room was comfortable and decent, as well as the private bathroom. Breakfast is OK, overall it's an affordable place that deliver great value. We return in the late evenings and the staff was already asleep, get ready to knock on their window if they don't hear the doorbell (like it happened... More
