Inle lake area and Bagan Hotels ?

Hi, all the choice and areas of hotels is confusing us.

We would prefer good 4-5 star hotels with a pool. Hopefully within walking distance of attractions and food/drinks etc. As for Inle, we do not want to be stuck out on the lake, prefer to do independent boat trips and see a bit of life on the mainland during evenings. Any suggestions please? Thank you.

There are no 4-5 star rate hotels in town( Nyaung Shwe).

4-5 star rate hotels located east and west banks of the lake and nearest one from the town is Inle Princess Resort (10 km).

I stayed at the Hotel at Tharabar Gate in Bagan which I see is four star. The location was fantastic - right in the middle of the temples, and there was a nice little group of local cafes just across the road. The hotel has a lot of tour groups in the evenings (buffet and band) and the lunches were expensive and not great so I only ate breakfast there which was fine. The room was spacious, airy and quiet, there are pretty gardens and a small pool which gets quite crowded when the tour buses come in ech afternoon. The staff were not particularly warm and the wifi virtually non-existent. Hope this helps.

Thanks Radames,

you make the hotel sound good and bad in the same breath. The fact it has a pool might swing it.

The advantages are the location and the cheap and good places to eat across the road - it should be a nice quiet hotel but when you have tour buses disgorging large numbers of tired and bewildered people on a daily basis you can feel like you are staying somewhere a lot less expensive!
