Lovely location and restaurant, but some other issues to consider
Review of Burmese Inn
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Oct 11, 2012
We stayed three nights. The location is great - a view of the river, but not of the lake, and just a few minutes from the walking bridge. The hotel restaurant was one of the best we ate at, and at great prices. The owner was always very forthcoming with advice and knows English well. The staff was amazingly friendly and even without knowing English made us feel at home.
The inn has a mix of standard rooms with double beds and shower and toilet, and simple rooms with shared bathrooms, all very reasonable rates.
As usual, our thin foam garden bench mattresses saved the day (or the night) with the extremely hard Thai beds.

We took a one-day trek with river rafting from the hotel which was nice enough but the guide did not know a single word in English so that anything he explained was by miming, including 15 minutes to understand he was showing us how rubber was extracted from a rubber tree where the knowledge of a single word would have saved much frustration!

So why only Average rating?
Overall the safety of the place was a real issue. The paths are very steep and quite narrow (cannot even roll a suitcase down them) and when it rains can get quite slippery in places, and in particular where the room balcony has plain slippery floor tiling.
The balcony of the building with the small rooms was not very sturdy, some planks were rotted and one of the supporting poles had completely rotted through near the ground.
We stayed in a room which we selected because it had a better view of the river, but the bathroom was down four very steep steps from the room with no railing to hold on to and with floor tiling that is extremely slippery when wet. My husband slipped and banged his head and wrist. The wrist is still painful almost a month later and we consider ourselves very lucky that it was not broken. After that we moved to a better room with no steps down to the bathroom but the floor was still slippery.
And by the way, you will inevitably find slugs and snails in the bathrooms (and their droppings) and mosquitos coming in becuase there is no netting covering the ventilation holes.

    Not sure why this has no reviews, I see a lot of mention on travelfish etc. I think it got a bad write up in LP but we found nothing wrong.

    We stayed here in a quite time and were the only ones, I think the logbook said no one for weeks! It's a shame as its quite nice, lovely poorhouse restaurant and nice little bungalows. A bit of life would do it wonders though, we like quite but this was dead.

    The lake level was low, do a bit swampy, but still nice outlook from the restaurant but not really of the bridge, which is the "thing" in this town. We had one meal there which wasn't really impressive, and was a little bit pricey (compared to local rates). Also staff didn't seem too interested or able to handle queries.

    We stayed in an aircon bungalow, because we were told there was no more fan bungalows? So quite pricey it was (at 800 baht). Nice little attached bungalow, clean with an attached bathroom. Compared to what else is available for similar prices though, I think this rate has dated considerably. Also rock hard mattresses, I know this happens in Thailand but really? Really firm.

    The location is great, just around the corner from the bridge! Really nice kept gardens too. We ended up staying elsewhere for a few nights, the other end of town was more livelier and better value. Have a look though, it would be great with a bit more life (and reduced rates)!
