Great location but other features disappoint”
Sandlewood Hotel is ideally located for Inle Lake boat trips but the cold room and awful free breakfast were major disappointments.

Best breakfast in Myanmar!”
We really loved our stay at Sandalwood hotel in Nyaung Shwe! Staff was very attentive, genuinely helpful and always smiley. They were very easy with late check out when our bus was leaving late in the evening on check out day - basically we could still stay until the time of the bus. The location is great, you are close to many restaurants, night market, jetty where boats are departing and short walk from the main street. But what we liked the most was the breakfast! We had best banana pancakes ever and one of the morning were even treated by delicious banana cake. Moreover, this was the only place in Myanmar where we had fresh juice for breakfast not the type of chemical mixture you get in most places. We don't know about other rooms but since there were not many guests once we arrived we got a large triple room which was very comfortable for our 3 nights stay. Not to forget they also offer free bikes! Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Awesome place to stay! ”
Very nice rooms, clean and comfy! The employees and the owner are very nice. I got sick during my stay and they looked very nice after me. The breakfast was just amazing, a pity that I couldn't enjoy it more (because of my upset stomach). I would definitely stay there again!

Nice staff and location.”
The staff was so nice with me. The manager, Nil, put me in a room with bathroom and touch me to drive the e-bike. The curtain was not good to sleep and it is not silent cause the window goes directly to the shared bathroom area. The sheet are not the best one. Anyway, for the price and location, i would stay here again. I arrived by bus from Mandalay and they left me in front of the hotel.

Great hotel! Good location, clean, nice staff. Just don't book bus tickets here! ”
This was one of the nicest guest houses I stayed at in Myanmar. Overall accommodation is very pricy, so this was a great find and relatively good value compared to what else I was getting for this price elsewhere in Myanmar. Very clean and good sized rooms. The included breakfast was very good. The staff were very attentive (almost too much, asking every few minutes if I want more coffee, but that is better than wanting more and not getting it!). Location was perfect - far enough from the river that I didn't hear the boats but close enough to make catching a trip very easy! They have bikes to rent as well, if you don't want to walk to the market. My only criticism is DO NOT book your bus tickets here. Go to Main Street to the actual company you want to travel with. Going onward to Yangon, I was told I was getting a seat with the one premier VIP bus (I think it's JJ), and that is what I thought I was paying for. When I get on the bus it's with another company (Thit Sar) and not only was it by far the worst VIP bus I've ever been on (it smelled like a toilet, the seats were falling apart, and even though we were already almost 2 hours behind schedule the driver stopped to fill up with gas 5km away from the bus stop before dropping the passengers off), I discover I payed much more for my ticket than I should have. I can't help but feel there was a little 'bait and switch' there. Bus ticket/trip fiasco aside, don't let that deter you from booking here. Just don't use the travel desk.

Friendly and flexible staff, nice proper rooms”
I booked a single room but the room they proposed me didn't liked me (ground floor, a bit dark, but still very nice) so, after insisting a bit, they agreed on changing it. That was very kind, as they could have easily said no. Bikes rent are the cheapest in town 1500mmk despite the good standing of the hotel and the quality of the bikes. Clean and comfortable bathroom. Good breakfast despite the room could be warmed with some decorations. Only advice I could have for the keepers is to add a bed light.

W-Lan I have not used. The hotel wireless networks of all hotels in Myanmar were rather bad. For a SIM card from Myanmar with 2 GB you pay about 6 € and that works great!

No internet after the first day and no hot water the entire stay. The rooms looked great and were very large. Much nicer than we expected. Right near the boats to take you to the lake. The breakfast they serve is fantastic freshly made 4 part breakfast and great service.

One of the best places to stay in Nyaung Shwe”
Great hotel. Large rooms, would have been nice if shower water was hotter as it was chilly in January. Fantastic breakfast, so much I couldn't eat it all but great variety of food. Walking distance to everything especially the excellent restaurants. Staff so helpful and would go out of their way to assist in your needs. Really miss the lovely, friendly faces of the staff. Thanks for making our stay so special. We will definitely stay with you again.
