    Nice rooms, good breakfast + rooftop view
    Its not going to be the cheapest accoms in Kalaw but its probably the best guest house I have stayed at (only one night) in Myanmar as the rooms are clean and in very good condition. There's also a pretty good breakfast available on the roof (nice view) + they took care of my onward van tickets to Inle Lake. Note that the location is on a hill - maybe a 15-20 minutes walk from the train station. Don't bother trying to walk it with alot of heavy luggage or wheeled but w/o heavy luggage its an easy walk. You can walk to the market area where the buses or rather vans depart for Inle Lake + where there are some restos for tourists to eat at. The Wi-Fi did not work when I arrived but then it worked later in the day - this is typical for Myanmar. To be honest, there's not much to see in Kalaw and at the end of the dry season, the scenery is not exactly spectacular. For me, it was a good place to spend a night to break up a trip from Yangon to Inle Lake.

    location, cleanness, staff performance
    A nicely located hotel on a hillside, 10 minutes walking from the "bus" station. Outside it looks a bit "scary" (Chinese business hotel style), but inside it is very nice, comfortable. All the rooms have balcony, very nice in the morning, for sunset. Breakfast served on the top floor. Absolutely recommended!

    Hilltop and town views from balcony, quiet location, breakfast room
    This hotel is up a hill a few hundred metres out of the central town area and has wonderful views across the township and hills from the room balconies and from the top floor breakfast room. It is this location and the views - especially in the early morning when it is still misty - that made this hotel such a good place to stay in Kalaw. The room amenities otherwise are of a reasonable standard and the staff were very helpful with arranging onward travel and providing advice on walking around the town and the different food options available.

    Stunning view from the restaurant (top) storey; attentive and friendly staff; clean and large rooms
    We stayed overnight just before leaving for a 3-days 2-nights trek from Kalaw to the Inle Lake. We arrived very late because our plane was 4 hours late, but the staff had waited for us! The rooms are large and the beds comfortable. The view from the restaurant, which is on the top storey, is absolutely stunning! Especially in the early morning when the sun starts "pulling" the fog. Must see!

    Staff was very friendly. The hotel is on a hill which actually has great view on the town. Also, on the balcony, there is actually a cool "breeze" that you don't have in town. Breakfast just good. Quantity a bit much, so we took the pancakes for takeaway :-)

    FIX THE GOL-DURN WIFI ALREADY!!”
    My second stay here in just over a year. Rooms are quite nice, with beautiful pine paneling and comfortable beds. Small fridge, good hot water, and the AC unit has a heater in it for those cold Kalaw nights - a great idea. The front desk staff is polite and friendly, and there’s a decent breakfast served in the restaurant on the top floor, where there’s a great view of Kalaw and the surrounding hills. Bit of an uphill hike to get there from the town center but the hotel is worth it. My main complaint is the WiFi! “WiFi available in lobby only”, and even there you are lucky to get online. Come on, Pine Breeze, fix this! It is 2018, not 2004, ferfuxsakes. WiFi should be as standard in a midrange hotel as electricity or hot water. Tired of burning through my Burmese data plan every time I stay at Pine Breeze.

    Kalaw is very relaxing after the noisy and dusty streets of Bagan. Because of it's high altitude the temperature isn't that hot as well (even very cold at night). Pine Breeze was a very clean and well organised hotel with friendly staff. We definitely recommend it.

    This was a typical older hotel- things were nice but nothing over the top, as expected for the price. The staff was great, beds were comfortable, and the biggest draw was the view at breakfast (which was pretty good- standard eggs fruit and pancakes). Not in the center of town, but everything is very close and walkable.

    We only stayed one day before our three days trek. The staff were very friendly, the view from the top was amazing. The room was clean but it would have been better if we could have got a room in the first or second floor it would have been better. Wifi only works in the lobby, and they also have a good selection of books in different languages of you like reading.

    Good stay”
    It was a good stay at Pine Breeze Hotel - however the first room I had booked on the ground floor had a terrible smell that I had to change for the following night and as the ground floor was full, I had to pay for a first floor room that was slightly more expensive (probably due to the balcony). The second room was much better, no odd smell, comfy bed and blankets (it was cold in January!). The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was absolutely great with a lot of food (nice pancakes!) - it's worth mentioning that the wifi is only available in the lobby area and is slow with small outages too but that was fine!

    Cleanliness, Breakfast, View
    My husband and I thoroughly loved our stay at Pine Breeze. We arrived late in the night at around 2am on a bus from Bagan and the staff was able to check us in without any problems -- they were very nice considering it was 2 in the morning! The room itself was very cozy and very clean. By far the cleanest and nicest budget hotel we stayed at during our trip to Myanmar. There was no heater in the room though, and it did get quite cold, around 8C, since it was winter time. But the hotel does provide warm blankets for you to use. The dining room is on the top floor of the hotel and has large windows all around -- the view is spectacular. The breakfast was delicious and they give you plenty of food (not buffet style). The electricity did flicker out a few times, but other than that, it was perfect. Wish we could have stayed there longer!

Breakfast was very nice and served up top with great views. Wi fi didn't work in the room but that's just Myanmar at the moment. Walk up the hill to hotel was fine for me. Happy paying $35 for the room.

    Pine Breeze is a very nice place to stay. Its location is up a hill a bit far from Kalaw's restaurants, but not too bad. The view from the roof top is wonderful and the breakfast is good. We thought the glass elevator was a nice touch. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a good sized balcony. The staff was quite attentive. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
