The owner is very friendly and helpful, she gave me good tips of places to eat, sightseeing in Kalaw and agencies to book the trek to Inle Lake. The laundry service is quite expensive (they charge per piece of clothes). No lockers and internet only works on the reception. The breakfast is good (eggs, fruit, toasts and coffee/tea). Not enough...

Read some bad things about this place, but still booked it because it's cheap. I left this place very satisfied! Very nice beds, hot shower, great breakfast included, very handy citymap for free and lots of good advise. What you need more!

Very nice clean rooms. The staff are very nice, especially the woman at the front, she will essentially give you an entire days itenary if you want. Breakfast is pretty good. Only down side is the wifi only works on the ground floor. We needed wifi and took a ground floor room, but it is loud (as they had warned...

Very good location for all kinds of activities around Kalaw. Close to a lot of Restaurants. There's a small shop over the road. Perfect for getting some beers before enjoying the sunset on the rooftop of the Hotel. The owner is very friendly and helpfull with organizing hiking tours, Taxis, bus tickets etc. She always offers her help. Also, she...

Friendly staff and good view over Kalaw from the rooftop. Unfortunately my room wasn't the cleanest and the shower partly broken. Also had to insist that the Hotels.com booking was prepaid. Eventually it got sorted out, but almost had to pay a second time when checking in.

We stayed here for one night before our trek to Inle Lake. The owner is really friendly and presents you with a map and recommendations upon arrival. Our room was really big with a terrace area. We stayed on the first floor after reading reviews about the ground floor rooms being noisy although I am sure they would have been...

It was a pleasant change to be greeted at the front desk by an adult rather than the teenagers that are front of house in the majority of establishments. The lady, who we assumed to be the manageress, spoke excellent English and was friendly and helpful. After check in we were shown two rooms to choose from - a small...

We arrived at 3am in the morning after taking a night bus from Yangon and were happy that the hotel offers a 24/7 reception. Our room was large, there were two large beds and the breakfast was okay. But the beds were a little wet, and the room was very cold and smelly. One day we had hot water, one...

Avoid the rooms by reception if you want to get any sleep! You will be woken various times during the night by new guests arriving between 2am-5am from the night buses. Then breakfast is served right outside your bedroom door at 7am. You will hear everyone coming in and out of the hotel, and the communal area is right outside...
