Nice hotel with friendly staffs and good breakfast!”
Stayed 1 day, but definitely felt welcomed from the staffs there. We arrived really early (5am) and they let us into a guest room to rest and wash up as our room were not yet ready. The breakfast is amazing, fresh fruits and the hotel owner even offered to give us extra serving of fruits! They were really efficient when we approached them and wanted to book a taxi to redmountain. They called and within minutes the tuktuk arrived. The room were all covered with wood and it is really nice and clean. Overall, a pleasant stay! Will come back again, surely!

Excellent atmosphere. Interior decor is made up of beautiful wooden furnishings with a rustic Burmese touch. It's also a friendly family-run business. Everyone was pretty attentive to our needs. And the breakfast was extremely generous too. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice hotel with amazing staff ”
The Golden Empress is a really nice hotel with large and very clean rooms and really good choice of freshly cooked breakfasts; however, the main plus point for us was the staff , they where extremely helpful and made our stay one of the best we have had in Myanmar.

The reception is smart”
This is a home style hotel with local taste. The reception girl is very smart and fast reaction. The room service young girl is shy but lovely. The location is excellent although a tiny tonw, it is close to the boat boarding point. Hot water is hot enough and free bottle portable water. The WiFi is slow as many remote area. The breakfast is overly simple but with plent fruits.

Nice in photos but outdated and dirty in person”
Room was spacious with a nice balcony but the corners of the wooden floors were not well cleaned and you can easily see old and new dust in the corners. The bathroom was very rusty and moldy and the water temperature in the shower was very inconsistent (going from scalding hot to cold in seconds).

very nice staff”
Hotel was simple, clean and a great location. The staff were exceptionally helpful. I loved the free bottled water. Breakfasts were very good with fresh half ripe avocado, yummy banans eggs, or crepe. Strong coffee. Wish the kids were in school and not working at breakfast... but this is sad reality in Myanmar.

5 stars service, spotless clean, beautiful room, great breakfast. ”
The lovely staffs were so warm hearted, I believe they would do everything to make us happy if we just ask. Not only insisted to carry our backpacks when we stepped in, they offered helps and knowledges to go around Inle everyday with happy smiles, cooked us great breakfast with everything we ordered, helped us to arrange bus tickets, upgraded our rooms for free, on the last day every staff was outside of the car waving to us and saying good bye. As a guest I felt totally welcomed at this place, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone I know.

Away from main road and accessible ”
I loved this place! Arrived at 6 am and my room wasn’t ready, so they kindly allowed me to crash in a recently vacated room for an hour or so before my own room was ready. I also received a feee upgrade and everyone was so warm and friendly. It’s far from the main road, so it’s nice and not too busy. There is a great little spa (jasmine) just across the road offering very good massages.

Really feel at home here.”
We had a very enjoyable and relaxed 3 days here, and are returning for another night after 3 days on Inle Lake itself. This is not a boring, large modern hotel. The authentic interior is filled with the owner's collection of antiques, artworks and collectables. There are several good restaurants close to this small hotel. Kyaw and his staff are all really friendly and helpful. He arranged a boat driver for our time on Inle Lake and we couldn't have had a better experience- thanks! We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Very welcoming, warm and hospitital”
We had a wonderful stay. The owner was there to greet us at check in. They upgraded us to the family room which was very large with a big bed and 2 twins. We had a corner room which had a good size balcony which had an umbrella covering. Great place to sit and watch the town go by. Breakfast was amazing. They have wonderful bananas pancakes (ctrepes) with several different kinds of fruit. They also make eggs any style as well as omelettes. They helped us arrange a boat trip to Inle Lake as well as assisted in selecting a hotel in Yangon. The hotel doesn't do laundry onsite however they arranged to send clothes out paying a minimal amount by kilo. If ever in town again this would be the place we would stay. P.S.- Right arcross the street was a cute little spa called Jasmines that we took advantage of for several different services for a very reasonable price. Thank you again Golden Empress for continuing to impress us with Myanmars hospitality!

Perfect Family-Owned Lodging for Leisurely Travel”
Spent a few days here after traveling from Mandalay + Bagan, and without a doubt, was the best place I've stayed in a while. Family-owned and operated, the location is excellent, being within a few minutes walking distance to everything in town, as well as the port leading into Inle Lake. Because I traveled during off-season, I was able to secure an excellent room at a fantastic price. As it was one of the larger rooms on the second floor, I also had a semi-private balcony with a table and chairs overlooking the small lane to the side of the hotel. The bathroom was a bit strange, in that the room was huge (relative to the overall size of the suite) and it included a bathtub that had a shower head positioned in a way that the water would splash everywhere when trying to take a regular shower. More quirky than bothersome. Fresh, made-to-order breakfast made everyday with fresh fruit (quite a lot!) served on the side. The staff (especially the daughter of the owner) were so incredibly helpful during my stay: booking my day trip boat ride around the Lake, helping me plan a bicycle tour around the area the day after, and finally getting me on a last minute morning bus back to Mandalay to catch my flight back home. They even fixed my flip flop sandal after the rubber tore! So incredibly amazed/impressed at how earnest and friendly they all were and, suffice it to say, the next time I travel to Inle Lake, I am definitely booking a room here again. Such a nice place.
