“clean simple rooms”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

I stayed here with my mother and sister.
Pros: The rooms were spotless and cleaned every day. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast was exceptional and worth getting up for. can sit on the balcony and watch boats. Centrally located.
Cons: The noise from the boats outside. solution: earplugs.

For me this was one of the best hotels I visited in Myanmar. The relation Price-Quality was excelent. It´s just 3 meters to the river, where you can get boats, the breakfast was also nice, but the best for sure it wa the big balkony at the roof, with a really nice view, perfetc for a dinner, or drink some cocktail.

We had a room right by the jetty where all the boats park and they are building a new bridge. It is noisy but we found that the noise stopped around 10pm and started again around 7am. If you are a light sleeper try for a room at the back of the hotel and bring ear plugs. Everything else about this hotel is awesome and I didn't want to leave. The staff are extremely accommodating and helpful. The breakfast is tasty and you get somewhat of a choice (eggs, pancake, toast, fruit), the rooms are very clean, you get a/c, TV and most importantly a comfortable bed. Having done a few night buses I caught a nasty cold and was ecstatic to have a comfortable place to recuperate for five days. The motel was also very helpful in arranging our VIP bus (best bus I've ever taken in SE Asia), a boat tour, bicycles, etc. I highly recommend this one if you can deal with the noise.

We had read reviews saying that the boats began early and would wake you up. We thought, "Okay, that we wake up early anyway." What we didn't understand is that the very noisy boats go up and down the canal all day long, beginning around 5:00 a.m. When boats are passing, it is impossible to hear what anyone is saying or to carry on a conversation. The place was nice, but that made it impossible and I would not recommend staying here unless you really like noise. Also, while the staff was nice, we had trouble finding anyone that spoke enough English to help us make arrangements, suggest restaurants, etc. They all seemed very sweet, but very young. I would suggest somewhere further away from the canal.

Room Tip: You could try the rooms in the back, but I would recommend a different hotel. Really!

This is a very nice looking hotel. The rooms are nice and breakfast is adequate. It looks out over the canal that leads into Inle Lake.
Now for the BIG negative. Because of its location, there is an almost constant noise from the long tail canal boats. By constant, I mean from as early as 4:30am until as late as 9:00 pm. It is so loud that you can't even carry on a conversation in you room! Really- and forget about sleeping. We did have a room with a view of the canal, but I'm not sure if the rooms in the back would have been much better. It was just that loud!!!!
The little negative: the hotel is staffed by a bunch of young( 20 something- if that). They are all very sweet, but have absolutely no clue. We were always looking for the person in charge--
This is really a great town with so many other accommodation options. Don't stay here if you want to sleep!

spent five nights with my family here. initially was planned 2 nights but our stay was so comfortable and the staff is so lovely,kind,helpful and friendly that we felt home and extended our stay.
we stayed in the family room on the 1st floor with ensuite two king beds. in front of our room was an outdoor sitting area with view to the river in front. the room had fanstastic views as well. mainly to the river where you can just sit either in your room or at the outdoor area to watch the locals and their daily routines.breakfast was served on the terasse and was a bit plain but plenty.
there is complementary water and toilletry in the rooms and wifi available in the common areas and in the rooms as well.
since its right at the river where all the boats to the lake depart,its very convenient to just go down and ask a boat driver to take you to places on the lake. inlestar can provide you umbrellas for the boat trip.
just around the corner is the main drag with all kind of local and western cafes and restaurants.
we always at the market where the one young indian lady cooks delicious local food. can totally recommend the tea leaf salad,the tofu salad and the chapatis and the shan noodles.
the whole city is under construction and hotels and tourist facilities are popping up like mushrooms. so there is some construction noise in the whole city. whereever you stay you cant escape that! what made inlestar so special was not only the accomodation itself but its staff. they are exceptionally friendly and helpful!!! i can recommend this lovely place to everyone!

Room Tip: family room on the first floor are large and have two king beds.

Arrived late to Nyaungshwe due to a late flight and they only had our room left.
The room was filthy and dirty that it was disgusting! Paying $60 usd for a dirty room just cause its high season is a rip-off. But we were so tired and not in the mood to look for another place at 9pm.
Dirty bedsheets and dirty towels
Wi-fi not available in the room we got so why do they advertise it?

Staff unhelpful and didnt care about the complaints of cleanliness

VERY VERY NOISY AS ITS NEXT TO THE CANAL so not worth staying there as the city is so small so better stay two block away and not suffer of loud engines roaring since early am and through the day

Compared to other choices and having traveled in more than 50 countries this ought to be one of the top rip-offs

Room Tip: Avoid the hotel and find another
