This hotel is clean and sitiuated near the canal, just 10 min walk from the main street. and of course it is really cheap for this kind of quality. You can rent a bike and also the hotel is organizing boat tour (advice : I discovered too late that you can ask for a boat tour starting earlier so that... More

I went for the 2nd cheapest room. Ill fitting mosquito blinds had me stuffing tissue paper into the gaps. There's a fan not air-con. Breakfast is an egg and a bit of fruit with toast. They turn off the wifi at 10pm which makes little difference as the internet is powered by an arthritic overweight squirrel at the best of... More

We stayed at Joy for three nights, the best value accomodation that we have had in Myanmar (although pricey for SEA). Our room was clean and we opted for an ensuite double fan room which was a really good size. Wifi is only really available in reception or on the breakfast balcony, which isn't a problem, and the balcony is... More

We called to book a room for 2 people before our three day hike from Kalaw. Our bag got to Joy Hotel just fine and when we booked a room over the phone we were told $10. My friend told them 2 people and made sure it was $5 each. The person on the phone confirmed that was the price.... More

We stayed at Joy Hostel for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The location is very nice, by the canal with the market and all the locals loading fruit and vegetables on the boats. We could watch this beautiful scenery every morning from the balcony where the breakfast takes place. We stayed in a double room with fan and... More

I stayed 3 weeks in that hotel, in the charming room A1, and I really enjoyed my stay here. Though the price and the quality is not that different from other hotels, the location is great, along a small and busy canal. So you can observe dozens of people carrying baskets full with tomatoes, colourful headscarves, and real people's life.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights to see the Inle Lake area. It's basic accommodation, but pretty good for it's price range in Myanmar. We paid $25 per night for a very big double room with attached bathroom. The communal balcony was a great place to meet other travellers and compare notes and the staff were really friendly. A few...

Well, hotels in Myanmar are generally overpriced. We've paid 22$ for a twin with shared bathroom while the same anywhere else in SEA (except maybe Thai islands) would cost less than 10$, but we accepted it before coming to this country. We won't complain about the room standards. But for that price I think that we can demand some cleanness... More
