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.

Very good
Awesome breakfast (the best), early check in and very nice staff. But there was no hot water at the time we stayed.

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!

I'll definitely stay here again next time I visit. Best experience during my trip by far. Close to the water where boat trips set off, great food, fantastic staff.

Good
The staff isn't very friendly or helpful. Seemed bored by the very few and easy questions I asked...

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 location with excellent rooms
Two minute walk from a jetty and five minutes from the main stretch of Nyuang Shwe - Sandalwood has great location and rooms. Staff were helpful; breakfast was good

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.
