We stayed here one night and really enjoyed it. The staff let us in our room early after getting in from the overnight bus. The room was clean and large for two people. The bathroom was also clean. It's not the quietest area with the boats going down the canal, but it didn't bother us much. The staff were very... More

when we booked, we knew it would be simple, so we can't complain. our room didn't have aircon and it was really hot. the curtains were very poor and in the morning it was super light. also, we were right in front of the breakfast area, so we didn't have a lot of privacy because you could see it through....

We stayed for a few nights here and we are glad we did it! The hotel itself is nothing special but the rooms were clean and shared toilets/shower were always clean too. Only one girl at the reception spoke english fluently and she was superb! She helped us and replied to all our 100000 questions! we booked all our tickets... More

Stayed here a little bit longer than anticipated due to sickness. However, as I had to reside in the room for multiple days, I think the 'hotel' is fine given the price you pay (for Myanmar). The room looked a little bit old, not really clean, and not completely free from mosquitos (mosquito net is advised). Also, as there is... More

We arrived at 3am in the morning, almost frozen in the extremely cold weather. Luckily, just 10 minute walk from Bus station took us to Joy hotel. (I highly recommend you to walk to your hotel on yourself and not accept any costly offer from Taxi/boat drivers upon immediate arrival, go to a hotel and book, it's cheaper! ) The... More

Tried to find it at 3AM and only found it after a local miraculously appeared and walked us there himself. We had been following signs to the hostel but it appears the last one has gone missing. Our room was big, though the LED light made it seem like a hospital room. The bathrooms are not nearly as frightening during... More

We arrived at 4am without a reservation and they let us check in and sleep right away. It's really basic, but I'd rather stay here for $20 (double/ shared bathroom/ wifi) than down the road for $40+. The staff were all very helpful and full of info.

stay in Myanmar. The location is very good, next to the canal that can see the local life along the canal. The staff is very helpful with good English, everyone can help us with everything. The spray hose was broken then it cause flood in the toilet, the staff fix it immediately though it was late night. The room is... More

This is ok if you're on a budget but you could get better. I loved the location as it overlooked the canal and the action was fun to watch in the morning, although very noisy. Unfortunately, I found the staff very rude. They didn't speak a single word of English which was very difficult if you had a problem or... More

I booked this from Kalaw as I was hiking to Inle Lake. The room was basic but clean with comfortable beds. The shower facilities were good enough although I had problems with the locks. The staff were friendly and let me shower after my stay had ended and I got a bus in the evening. The main issue I had... More
