Fabulously Friendly ”
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.
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.
Slightly dated but fabulous stay”
A little oasis close to the center of Nyaungshwe. Great pool and super helpful staff. Rooms (Pool Suite) are spacious. Having an extra table and couch is certainly a good addition if you need to do some work while traveling. Rooms were very clean but could do with some modernisation (but hey, it's Myanmar). Would stay again.
100% would stay again ”
Very helpful and kind staff who can help you book trips in and around Inle Lake and onward buses to next destination. They promote 'the best breakfast' and it really was I've never been fed so much delicious food! Great location near restaurants and not far from the lake for a boat trip!
Pay a little extra for the pool side rooms”
We had a great stay here after a two day trek from Kalaw. The pool was heaven in April as its hot!! The rooms around the pool have a little terrace with loungers which is perfect. The rooms are a little dated decor wise but do the job and we had a comfrtable nights sleep. We were able to pay 15000 to have a late check out at 5pm as we had an overnight bus. The breakfast was plentiful, eggs and pancakes, toast and fruit. Not super close to the main street when its hot and dark but we slept well. The staff are lovely and very helpful.
Myanmar adventure ”
Great pool with a lovely garden. The staff were excellent very friendly and polite. Close to great restaurants and the main street. Very quite. Breakfast is great the staff offer you more and more. Check in was very fast.
100 times thank you!”
I have spent almost a week at Mingalar Inn and I would come happily back. At start of my stay, I’ve got the regular travels food poisoning, probably from the night market or a food before arriving to Inle Lake. The stuff was so helpful, kind and caring. I can’t imagine going through the decease without their compassion. They serve a nice breakfast with great banana pancakes :) And the pool is really clean and cools one off in a hot day. The hotel is very close to good restaurants and the channel to take the boat ride on Inle Lake. Thank you again for the nice smiles, talks and great care!
Great hotel with pool, great staff and management”
Had a great stay here. Huge, clean room by the pool, fresh towels and linens. Great staff--very helpful. Breakfast was simple but good, loved their pancakes and Myanmar 'empanadas'. Loved the pool. Arrived early in the morning, and really appreciated them letting me check in early to rest. They also allowed me to check out a bit later so I could stay until my pickup came. Would like to thank the kind management again. Highly recommended!
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.
Great location, friendly staff, simple breakfast, ICY COLD swimming pool”
We chose to stay in Nyaung Shwe instead of some resorts on Inle Lake, because we wanted something to do after dark. Being stuck in some resort after dark, surrounded by cackling P.R.Chinese tourists, unable to escape anywhere without a boat, is NOT our idea of good travelling. So we booked this inn and were so glad we did. We love the location. It's within walking distance to so many good restaurants and a wonderful massage place. We love how peaceful the neighbourhood felt after dark. Breakfast was a simple but decent spread. However, the pool was ICY cold - swimming wasn’t exactly possible. The temperature Inle Lake area can drop to 8°C in the dark hours. I would also suggest arranging for the inn to pick you up from the airport. Damn airport taxi wanted 40000 Kyat and didn't have the decency to tell us there be toll of 1500 PER PERSON to pay. It's not much money, but no less annoying. The inn's car took us to the airport for just 20000 Kyat and NO toll. Get the hotel to pick you up.
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!
Very good breakfast, very kind people!
Power Cuts and dated”
This place is ok but make sure you book the rooms near the pool. The place is dated and we had power cuts everyday and one lasted all night from 10pm till 7am - they have a generator but didn’t use it. We asked why they don’t use it during power cuts and then finally it’s switched on. We visited during low season and the hot season. Pool not so clean - pool filter not on. Power cuts maybe. Staff are pleasant. Breakfast so so. No kettle in room. They can provide hot water for coffee. 20,000 kyats to the airport which is a long way away. Enjoy and have fun in Inle.
A friendly, authentic hotel”
The staff are a pure delight. The hotel location is great as the hotels on the main road are really noisy (I moved!) The pool is a big plus as there are very few in Nyaung Shwe and, apart from a day on Lake Inle, there isn't really a lot to do in the area. The better newer rooms are around the pool. Breakfast is limited, coffee could be better, but the pastries are local.
Friendly staff with good English, lovely pool”
We loved staying at Mingalar Inn. We stayed in the basic rooms which we were clean but need some more towel rails and hooks in the bathroom. The pool was lovely especially being able to use it after checking out before our night bus. There is a great amount of outdoor sitting spots for reading, etc.The staff are very helpful. There are no kettles in the rooms but a flask of hot water is available upon asking. We would stay there again.
Rooms D-9, D-10”
Very cozy hotel located within walking distance to all sights. A cozy courtyard is a swimming pool, the rooms are bright and spacious in country colors. The breakfast is ok. The staff is helpful and cheerful. Required only here, on occasion.
Super kind staff & really good breakfast”
Staff was so welcoming and caring, helped us a lot while I was sick. They even gave us an upgrade (bigger room). Rooms were super clean. Breakfast was amazing - best we had in Myanmar! The garden/pool area was great for relaxing after a long day on the road. Location was perfect, you could walk everywhere or rent bicycles from the hotel.
Small charming and cozy”
I really like this hotel for all the great service. The staff is the best. The hotel new rooms look fantastic. I ask for downstairs and had a older room that need d some updating. It did have everything that was needed. Very clean and comfortable. A nice swimming pool. Yummy free breakfast. When I left early one morning they even packed me breakfast. Ordered a cab for me. So you know I am happy. Thank You
Very welcoming upon arrival and had mid afternoon lemon drinks offered each day when we returned back to the hotel. Fantastic pool - however a bit cold. Breakfast was huge! No one left feeling hungry - toast, omelet, samosa, fruit, pancakes with tea/coffee. We extended our stay a few more nights as we loved the vibes here, so relaxed and accomodating. Helped us with taxis and boat tours and my partner was sick which they were very concerned about (nice touch from caring hosts). Will come back again when we visit Inle Lake again!!
nice staff, good location, outdated facilities”
We arrived at Mingalar Inn around 5.30 am and got the room at 7.30. It's really helpful as we just had a long bus from Mandalay. All staff was so nice and helpful. We are all appreciated their help. Good location too. The (family) rooms were a bit old, only one electric socket in the room, in middle of the wall, no extension. So it's difficult for us (3 ppl sharing a room) to even charge our phones at night. The hot water was on and off and we were there too. The shower in the bathroom was so old, no eco-friendly at all. Still, a good place to stay. Would be better with some improvements
