Best value for money we experimented in the whole Asia”

Excellent hôtel in Nyaung Shwe, on a great central location but far from the main traffic. We had an amazing time here, where we spent 6 nights in total. Absolutely perfect after the trekking from Kalaw. What we loved : - The whole staff is so lovely. You got a fresh lemon juice each afternoon, by the pool or in the room - Buffet Breakfast next to the pool area. Abundant and, here again, the staff is lovely. - Rooms : had the standard room: really spacious, good bed, comfy mattress, a lounge corner, clean bathroom, etc... - Price : how could we find a better price for value here? We paid around 20$ per night and got treated like kings. We checked out at 11am, and they kindly let their guest chill by the pool when waiting for the late afternoon buses : that was awesome. Our favorite hotel in the whole Myanmar.

Felt like home! So happy we found this place!!”

Amazing hospitality without being all over you. Delicious breakfast with seconds always offered. Fresh lemonade brought to us upon our return every day. Staff is very kind and considerate. Pool is lovely, very clean and so nice after a days adventuring. They speak very good English and are always trying to make you happy. In town, so it was close to walk to all the restaurants and services. We planned on staying a couple days and stayed a week. Loved this area of Myanmar and the Mingalar Inn made it extra special!

Great place to stay, AMAZING hospitality. ”

A great experience, clean rooms and great facilities but it was the staff that really made the place stand out. The helpful and pleasant staff were so attentive during our whole stay and were very eager to answer any questions that we had. The whole area has a shut down on electricity from 9pm to 12pm and again at 6am but Mingalar Inn has a back up generator unlike some other places. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

It was the best hotel during our trip to Myanmar. Very helpful staff - give us a free map, tell us where and how to go, free lemon juice is a must-try! Perfect location in a calm street, good swimming pool is perfect for refreshing after a long bike ride or road trip, great breakfast - pancakes are amaizing! We booked a standart double room, but when we arrived we decided to upgread for pool side room - great spacious room with bathroom! Perfect hotel with a great service! We felt like home during our stay! Highly recommend! Hope to return one day!

When we came back to the room after a (hot) day there was always a cool glass of lemonade brought a few minutes later. It’s possible to rent bikes. Breakfast is very good; fruit, eggs, pancakes as much as you want. We stayed 5 nights.

Arrived dusty at Mingalar Inn after trekking through villages for past 3 days. A thorough Hot water shower started our stay at the cosy little place, dinner at the highly reviewed San Ma Thu, just a few minutes walk away. And the next day breakfast fully recharged us to rent bikes at very reasonal price and with directions and map provided by their frontdesk, we rode to Khaug Dine and took the boat ferry across to Min Thauk Bridge then cycled back to Nyaung Shwe. Friendly front desk, who also serve us coffee and breakfast. Even helped us call bus company to double confirm a tuktuk was going to pick us up to shuttle us to bus counter. Excellent service!

Don't have much to complain except for mosquitos bites when I sat outside, but then where else in Myanmar doesn't have mosquitos? People are very friendly, location is nice! If you like to bike around (it's very easy ride everywhere), you can also rent a bike here! It'd be great if it's summer so that I can dip into the pool. I didn't try this time because it's a little chill some time when the sun was out.

The people are great; very accommodating. They sorted a tour around Inle Lake - which was great and recommend places to eat. As I was a solo traveller, they kindly upgraded my room for one next to the pool as they had some capacity, which was fab. The pool area is relaxing and great after a days walking! It’s in a quiet location, but close to town. Will stay again, given the chance.

Ideally located a 5 min walk from the city center, the hotel is quiet, clean and has a ery friendly staff. Great value for money at USD23 a room (od building). The newer building seems to be a significant step-up but costs a bit more. The Swimming pool area is nice but sunbathing opportunities are a bit limited given the setup. Breakfast was more than fine at this price point, either buffet style on busy days with many guests or the staff takes orders if less busy.
