From the recent reviews, it looks like your experience might be hit-or-miss. However, we stayed for 3 nights in June and it was lovely. The room was spacious and clean, and overlooked the pool. The huge breakfast was served quickly and cheerfully and the staff lwere incredibly friendly and helpful. The only downside was that internet service was erratic, something... More

Please see reviews from JacobS and Crawf89 below. I totally agree with them. Dont let the pictures and pool be a draw card. We were very disappointed. We paid $38 Australian the most of all our Myanmar trip and the worst room of our Myanmar trip. We pre booked 2 nights and stayed 1. It was worth losing the money... More

Had a great sleep here after an early morning bus arrival the room was ready earlier than expected. The lack of aircon didn't bother me as it was quite a nice temperature when I visited. The main lady at the reception is nice and helpful....However, she charged me 25,000 for a bus ticket to Yangon when everyone else on the... More

We had a lovely stay at this charming hotel. The hosts were welcoming and helpful, the pool was a welcome relief from the heat and the location is very good. A 5-10 minute stroll to the centre. Breakfast was very good as well. The rooms were quirky but our room only had a fan. There was an option for aircon... More

We booked Mingalar inn as it was the cheapest accommodation with a double room for our backpacking trip. The hotel itself on arrival looks lovely and the pool area is by far the best bit. The room itself was large and clean. The sheets were ok, and bathroom in good condition with a hot shower. The free breakfast was great:... More

Visited september 2014. Located close but still a bit away from the main drag. Clean, spacious, comfortable rooms. Perfect with a pool in the heat. Extremely friendly staff, even prepared a special breakfast to go (even before normal breakfast hours), when they learned we were going on a early morning trip to Lake Inle. Very high value for your money...

Good family run hotel, staff couldn't be more helpful and can provide you with almost any service you need. We stayed in the 'old rooms' which are very spacious, clean with a very hot shower, although they are showing their age. Very comfy beds. Recently added pool which is very clean and perfect for hot afternoons. Daily breakfast with lots... More

This is a very cute little hotel with a small but cool swimming pool. The rooms by the pool are the best ( we stayed out the back as well). They are more spacious. Fairly basic but quaint. The people at reception are exceptionally friendly and helpful and booked our tour on the lake and onward flights and taxis for... More

Thank you for suggestion and the review. When many people order in the same time for the breakfast, it will take a bit longer. Everyday we offer free fresh lemon juice in the afternoon. We did not charge for everyone who stay in our place. But after check out , please you have to order and pay for the juice.... More
