        Canalside view”

        Picked the best place to stay in Nyaungshwe ... hotel next to jetty for the long boats and wonderful view from the roof terrace. Staff were all very attentive and helpful and I feel bad that in the rush of leaving and paying hotel for waiting taxi I failed to leave a tip as they deserved it. Only slight downside was the breakfast food not being very hot, but lots of it and served buffet style on the roof terrace in the morning sunshine. Staff booked our flight from Heho to Yangon and arranged our boat trip around Inle Lake so as to include bird watching and less 'shopping opportunities'. A wonderful day on the Lake .. everywhere so photogenic.

        Great hotel but rooms on river are very noisy”

        New, comfortable, clean

        Room was gorgeous and new - fashionably decorated. Large. Big problem: how noisy were the engines from the boats on the river. Although it's nice to have river view, it's way too noisy until it gets dark and boats stop running. Opt for a room facing away from the river. Also, it was very cold in the room and up on the breakfast terrace. It warms up in Inle Lake during the day, but not in the room. Wifi very poor - but that's common by Inle Lake.

        Great location, good breakfast, nice room, good patio with river view

        I found the stay at Inle Star very satisfactory. The location being right on the Inle River bank could not be beat and the staff was very attentive and friendly. The room was clean and pretty spacious with a little patio space with river view. The only downfall is that the room was very chilly in the morning and evening and the blankets not thick enough to keep in the warmth. Would recommend and stay at this hotel again.

My room was right above the jetty but I managed to sleep through the night. Staff are just wonderful and so accommodating. Thank you Inle Star for making us feel so welcome.

        Riverside terrace, location, price

        We got there early and they let us check-in. The hotel is centrally located next to the bridge over the river at the end of Main road in Nyaungshwe, which makes it easy to go visit Inle lake, since central boat station is at the hotel's doorstep. For people staying in frontside rooms this may be a problem because of the noise of the boar engines starting early morning. The staff, although poor English, is impecable. The rooms are basic but comfortable and there's wifi everywhere. The best really is the breakfast on the terrace, with an amazing amazing view over the river and the city's bustling life. In Nyaunshwe's hotel racket, definitely a choice.

        Good value, central location and good breakfast

        Relative to other Myanmar hotels the Inle Star is relatively cheap. The hotel standard is as you would expect at this price tier, which is fine as you will spend most of your time whilst staying here either on the lake or out trekking. The breakfast is surprisingly good and is pleasantly served on the terrace on the roof with a good view.

        Hotel above average for the price”

        Clean, Cheap, Good Location

        Hotel is pretty decent for the price paid. Very good location, clean, good breakfast. Cons: most of the time no hot water, you have to shower with cold water, no in-room safe (they have one big safe for all the customers and a major inconvenient: do not buy their boat to visit lake Inle, I did and I had a guide/boatman who didn't speak a single word of English, they said he would take me in a tour until 17 hrs but the "guide" took me back to the hotel at 14:15 hrs, after visiting all tourist shops on the Lake, 3 monasteries and 1 market. When I complained ( I said I didn't need them to visit tourists' shops and I should have visited more Pagodas / Monasteries besides I should have an English speaking guide) they said they were sorry but I did the visits too quickly, that was why I finished before time. That is simply not true. There are plenty of other options to hire boats at Inle but be carefull the guide doesn't use the time to drive you around tourists shops where he gets his commissions.

        This place is a small hotel. More like a motel. They have staffs with amazing attidute and service. We arrived at 6 a.m. on the day we booked via the night bus and are allowed to check in. There is a roof top bar with nice view of Inle Lake Town and the river. Breakfast included is simple and nice. Downside is its location by the riverside. You can hear boats starting up early in the morning but not a problem for us. Overall, we had a plesent stay.

        Just off the main strip and right along the canal, Inle Star is a great value for your money.

        The staff hospitality, rooftop breakfast experience and room comfort

        We booked this hotel quite last minute, only to feel pressured when all the other shortlisted hotels were already booked up. For USD32/night, we got a standard room(only fan, without A/C), 2 single beds, hot shower, toiletries, kettle, mineral water and 3 in 1 drink. Also, breakfast at rooftop with canal view. Although a lot of reviews mentioned about the hotel location which face the noisy canal, we found it to be OK. Our room (204) faced the canal and we got to see daily locals' life at the canal. The noise, we believe is normal considering boats are the mean of transportation here. Plus, it's only start when sunrise and the noise will recede during sunset. Wifi is OK, but the speed can be better. Boat trips, bus tickets and tours can be booked at the reception, though the jetty is just nearby. You can just walk and ask the boatmen for Inle boat tour. Don't miss the breakfast as the options given are plenty. You'll be given a form to choose from fried rice, fried vermicelli, Shan Noodle, soup noodle, fruits, pancakes, eggs, tea, coffee or juices. The breakfast location is also superb-on a rooftop which is a nice photospot (overlooking the canal and paddy field)! Check out time is at 12 noon. However, the hotel has a bathroom and WC where you can take shower before boarding the bus. Overall, it was a nice stay and the staffs at the reception also were very helpful though they hve limited command in English.

        Clean, Location, Value for money

        I only stayed one night but was impressed with this hotel for the money - definitely the best value hotel I stayed in Myanmar. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable - I would definitely stay there again. The location was also great, right next to where all the boats leave for the lake with a lovely view from the rooftop where you have breakfast. I was on the ground floor but think the rooms on the upper floor would have been nicer as they had a little balcony you could sit out on. I was a little concerned about the noise in the room when I first got in - it is right next to the road so could hear all the motorbikes, cars etc going by but as there was no traffic through the night and I was up very early this did not disturb me but I could imagine if you were after a long lie it might be a problem...but then why have a long lie when you have the lake to explore in the morning! A great hotel for the price.

        Location, breakfast, service

        The Inle Star is in a convenient location for sightseeing, especially for boat hire for Inle Lake. It is around a ten minute walk to the market and the concentration of restaurants. The room, while small, was clean and a decent place to return after a big day. Unfortunately the water was rarely never more than lukewarm and the wifi sporadic. The multi-course breakfast on the roof-top deck was always delicious. The laundry rates are very reasonable (250 kyat per piece) but a sock was lost.

        When told the hotel is noisy they mean noisy”

        noise, location, staff

        I read that the rooms on the canal side of this hotel were noisy when the boats started up in the morning but I really didn't appreciate the meaning of noisy BUT don't get me wrong I would stay on the canal side of the hotel again if I went back for a couple of days at least. Nowhere else in Nuangshwe can you see the local life as you can sitting on the balcony of this hotel. It was truly amazing and gave the opportunity for some great photos. So if that is what you are looking for this is the hotel you for you. The staff was so kind and willing to do anything with a smile. Not much English was spoken but we were able to get all our requests filled with little trouble. Maybe I should have learned a bit more Burmese before I went. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the one we had on the canal had a large balcony overlooking the canal. The breakfast was very good. Coffee/tea, juice/fruit plate, eggs/your choice, or fried rice/fried noodles/soup. what more could you want. I would definately recommend this hotel for the price, location, quality and service.
