Cute stay in Inle”

The location to the boats and downtown, the friendly Burmese staff, the continental breakfast

It was quite lovely. The ladies at the front counter were helpful even if their English was okay. They knew how r to prepare a delicious breakfast though. The hotel is 5 minutes away from the main dock where tippy can hire a boat Dover to show you around Inle lake. Great time. The market and other great dining areas are in ten minute walking distance. When it was time to check out, they let us keep our bags by the front desk as we continued to explore around the lake by renting bicycles. I would totally stay there again.

Great value place for your Inle visit”

Very helpful staff, great location, excellent breakfast

We mostly enjoyed our stay at Gold Star. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was the best we had included at a hotel in Myanmar. Our room was on the ground floor next to a water pump outside, so it was fairly noisy due to both that and people coming and going outside our window. Aside from that, I don't have much bad to say about it! The room was cool even after hot days but we had plenty of blankets for the chilly nights.

Very good budget accommodation”

Breakfast, price & location

This is definitely a budget hotel, but a very good one. The free breakfast was fantastic! Room was worn but a good size and was quiet. Beds were a little hard, but normal for Asia. We were there in December and it got cold at night, but extra blankets were already provided in the room so we didn't even need to ask. Location was a 5-10 minute walk from the main strip, so nice and quiet but easy reach of food and life. It's right near the pier for arranging boat trips around the lake - we were approached for a very cheap boat trip near here and arranged it directly at the pier. There were regular power cuts but the generator generally kicked in during these. WiFi was not good due to power cuts cutting the router off so often, and even when there was a connection it was extremely slow, but normal for Myanmar. Staff spoke English and were helpful and happy. All in all, I would happily stay here again, if only for the breakfast!

Stay for friendly staff but not for the bathroom”

Staff are very friendly and helpful, located near the water, quiet & peaceful

As most staff are in Myanmar, they were very friendly and helpful at Gold Star, fulfilling any requests promptly. The standard room (#102) was okay, with a large (but stiff) bed, big windows, strong fan instead or A/C (that's all you need in November), and plenty of clothes storage furniture. The bathroom was ridiculous. Black spotted mold all over the inside of the bathroom door, black spotted mold saturated the shower curtain, the towel rack was at a height of 200cm (why?!) and the tiles, walls and floors looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a decade. There was also an ant colony sneaking in and taking over the wall behind the sink and the sink itself. The exhaust fan in the bathroom was non-functional, which probably explains some of the mold. The price was amongst the best in Nyaungshwe listed online but we can now see why. Stay at your own risk.

Many things could be better”

Very near a small cafe called the Red Star cafe round the corner next to the Aquarius. Excellent banana-chocolate pancakes there.

We were given a big room on the 3rd floor which was very old. Internet was poor which was not the case in other hotels in other parts of the country we had been in. The air-con kept cutting out but when they came to look at it, eventually owned up to having poor electricity supply which kept cutting out, not that the aircon was broken. Walking distance to town about 15 mins. We booked our boat ride on Inle lake by going down to the pier (10 mins walk) and talking to a boatman directly which probably cut out middle-man fees and was certainly a few thousand kyats cheaper. Did not buy bus ticket from hotel as they quoted us a price 6000 kyats more than the Skania bus travel agent in town (16000ks). Breakfast was just so-so.

Quite good but nothing special”

The best thing about this hotel is the location, walking distance of everything, the main street of restaurants and jetty to get boats to the lake. It's also in a quiet part of town but has a noisy water pump which luckily they turn off in the evenings. We paid extra for an aircon room which was pointless when we were there as it was cold at night. The bathroom was big but old and the bath was splashed with what looked like black paint. Decent breakfast and will make toast if you don't fancy noodles or rice. The pancakes were good.

Cold in January”

Location

It's close to the pier where you can easily get a boat to the lake. There are some restaurants nearby. We booked a standard room and arrived very late at night - we slept in a creepy room that night, and in the next morning the staff told us we're moving to another one because there's no hot water in our room (we were happy to hear this). The new room was much better, it looked cleaner and nicer, I think it was the superior one. There's no heating at all, so it's cold in January, but extra blankets are provided. The breakfast is basic. Sometimes there's no electricity during the day. You can book bus tickets at the front desk, which is useful.

Wouldn't recommend”

Look of the building

The hotel isn't awful, but it was by far my least favorite hotel we've stayed at in Myanmar. The staff was not at all helpful, the breakfast was a step down from every other place, and the rooms we're in bad shape. Sure it's a $25-$30 a night hotel and I shouldn't expect much, but I've only been staying at $25-$30 hotels and this is a dramatic step down. Don't waste your time or money with Gold Star.
