By far the best value hotel I stayed in during my 23 days touring Myanmar - a lovely pool, clean, well appointed room, friendly service, delicious breakfast - and all for only $25! Ok, there are posh rooms in the new block overlooking the pool which cost a lot more. But I tend to just sleep and wash in my...

This was a great hotel to stay in after the trek from Kalaw. It was brilliant to have the pool, which is in a pretty, relaxing garden. We paid extra for a junior suite to give us room to sort our stuff out. This comes with a big balcony looking over the pool and garden, with reclining chairs. Because we...

From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, the staff at Mingalar Inn were smiling, kind and helpful. They provided us with a welcome drink, allowed us to use the pool once we had checked out and then helped us catch our night bus. We enjoyed our stay in Inle - Thank you :)

After doing the Kalaw to Inle trek, we were looking forward to our stay at the Mingalar Inn (particularly the pool). It didn't disappoint and we enjoyed our stay immensely. Good breakfast and comfortable room. We stayed in Room 5 next to the pool - nice room but could do with a curtain over the entrance window to block a...

We booked this room months in advance of our trip. It was a "standard room" that we had booked at locations throughout Burma. We received an email from Agoda (we booked all our lodging through Agoda) while on the trip that I unfortunately missed for a few days because Wi-Fi is poor in many parts of Burma. The email told...

This is because of it can happen some problem. we have seen and happen already some problem before. So that is why hotel allow to meet guest only at reception. when you book from online...

Breakfast is included and was quite good which included the option of a banana pankake in addition to fresh fruit and eggs prepared in a couple...

A very friendly place. The stuff is very supporting. They are willing to help and answer all sort of questions. The rooms along the pool are big and have everything, which is needed. We were travelling with our two children and felt very welcome. The stuff is Kids friendly.

We loved our light spacious pool side room and really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Mingalar Inn. The pool and garden are an oasis in the rather dusty town, the location in a quiet street not far from the market is convenient and the breakfast really nice - but what really stood out was the exceptional service from...
