Great for a couple of days near Inle Lake”
We stayed for 3 nights at Joy Hotel. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was the best we had in myanmar, we loved it: eggs, avocado, toasts, banana, tea/coffee. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We had private toilet with hot shower. When we checked out they had no problem with storing our luggage as we had a late bus to catch. Recommended.

The staff at joy hotel were so helpful and nice. They let us check in early, helped us book buses, tours, do laundry etc. On our checkout day, I wasn't feeling well and they even gave us a small room to use for a couple of hours until our bus arrived. Really lovely place, I can't say enough good things about the friendly people!

Nice stay”
The hotel is right at the pier when you get off the boat but If I would go back to Inle Lake I would prefer staying right in the center since it was dark when we came back at night and lots of dogs barking. Wifi was really bad. Staff was great and breakfast was nice on the rooftop.

This is the cheapest we can find in nyaung shwe, and cheapest is what we are looking for Location: in front of the river, where local load produce to/from boat every morning. but a dark street at night (but the area is pretty safe so we have no worries). Great for sunrise boat tour, the boat can pick u up literally at the hotel doorstep. Cleanliness: acceptable for backpackers. A bit old and rundown. Not dirty. Staff: Typical myanmar hospitality, very very nice. Speaks basic english. Facilities: Shared toilet. Toilet is not great. Hot shower available, but slow. Really hope they can improve on the shower facilites. Breakfast served at balcony (eggs, toast, banana, avocado, coffee) we stayed here and spent most our time in ostello bello, making use of their facilities and great crowd. So it worked out very well. hehe.

A great team!”
We really enjoyed our stay at Joy Hotel. The staff is so friendly and helpful. It's located near the canals, it's perfect to catch a boat in the morning. The breakfast is served on the terrace in front of the canal, it's a pretty good way to start the day. Wifi is ok, showers have hot water. I would definitely recommend staying here while visiting Inle Lake.

Good for budget private stay”
Don't expect anything amazing from this place. But it is good for what you pay. Hardish bed, sheet and awful blanket we didn't end up using. Smelly bathroom with hot shower. Neighbours have a little baby - crying at night quite a lot. Breakfast is amazing - loved it a lot! It is by one of the river canals where they transport or the fruit and vegetables from the floating gardens - so it is quite busy around in the morning (lovely to watch it while having a breakfast at the balcony). A bit dark and dodgy at night though. Nice restaurants around. We booked our lake tour from the Ostelo Bello hostel and we were very happy about it. You have to try Innlay hut (Indian Food House) - you have to book a table or come early. But the food is so yummy and it is more for the entertainment (you will understand when you get there :)). The vineyard was amazing and peaceful (up hill - we had to push our bikes) - the tasting wines were not that good, but found amazing wined in their "wine menu" and spent there looooong hours watching the views. Much better to come early afternoon - quieter and lovely.

Nice clean hotel with great breakfast”
Nice hotel next to the "river" close to the main road. Nice always smiling stuff. Clean eventhough we had a rat in our room that got in through the whole that is in the bathrooˇ to let the water out (i think that its a problem just for the ground floor). Breakfast really nice with lots of fruit.

Incredibly nice personal and large (single) room ”
The "single" room was very large and I have rarely see an entire hotel staff so nice, helpful and smiling! All the women from the staff are very convenient and despite a (sometimes) limited english, everything is very easy to organise! Also having breakfast on the rooftop and the sunrise is sooo extremely nice! However: Wifi was not working all the time (at the reception). The price offered/ suggested for any services (boat tour on the lake, taxi etc) are quiet expensive so I would rather suggest to ask on the street 2 or 3 person in order to compare and then choose the best alternative.

Cheap spot to stay. Look its not 5 star so don't expect that. Bathroom in our double room could do with revamp, some tiles loose and often stale water smell. Bed good. Brekkie good if you are used to toast, eggs etc. Staff are great. When we arrived early 6am they had a room so we could nap. Helped book our tours and buses too. Lovely female staff. Seems yo be family run.

It was very nice stay. We came in very early -shortly after 6 am. So our room wasn't free yet but they offered us another one if we want to rest before our room get's ready! We booked a boat trip with the hotel and also a bus ticket to Yangoon. Everything went smoothly. Breakfast was very good. We got a nice and spacy room with big bathroom. We would definetely recommend this place as it is very close to everything in the city.

Amazing staff!”
The hotel is quite basic but it has everything you need and you really have the feeling of travelling through myanmar. The hotel is located in a street with foodmarkets where many locals are passing by. The breakfast is very good (avocado, banana, toasts, egg, jam, thee/coffee). Furthermore the staff is really helpful and friendly. They do everything for you. When my friend got ill, one of the staff members brought her to the docter and they even made her special rice to recover (all for free!). All in all, good value for money!
