It's an old style hotel as can be seen from the photo. So it's normal that the room and toilet won't be clean like a new one. But there's nothing too dirty. Reception are very nice. To our surprise, hot water available all the time in the bathroom. Good for one night stay and worth the price.

A great team!”

We really enjoyed our stay at Joy Hotel. The staff is so friendly and helpful. It's located near the canals, it's perfect to catch a boat in the morning. The breakfast is served on the terrace in front of the canal, it's a pretty good way to start the day. Wifi is ok, showers have hot water. I would definitely recommend staying here while visiting Inle Lake.

Incredibly nice personal and large (single) room ”

The "single" room was very large and I have rarely see an entire hotel staff so nice, helpful and smiling! All the women from the staff are very convenient and despite a (sometimes) limited english, everything is very easy to organise! Also having breakfast on the rooftop and the sunrise is sooo extremely nice! However: Wifi was not working all the time (at the reception). The price offered/ suggested for any services (boat tour on the lake, taxi etc) are quiet expensive so I would rather suggest to ask on the street 2 or 3 person in order to compare and then choose the best alternative.

Great for a couple of days near Inle Lake”

We stayed for 3 nights at Joy Hotel. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was the best we had in myanmar, we loved it: eggs, avocado, toasts, banana, tea/coffee. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We had private toilet with hot shower. When we checked out they had no problem with storing our luggage as we had a late bus to catch. Recommended.

Good”

This is the cheapest we can find in nyaung shwe, and cheapest is what we are looking for Location: in front of the river, where local load produce to/from boat every morning. but a dark street at night (but the area is pretty safe so we have no worries). Great for sunrise boat tour, the boat can pick u up literally at the hotel doorstep. Cleanliness: acceptable for backpackers. A bit old and rundown. Not dirty. Staff: Typical myanmar hospitality, very very nice. Speaks basic english. Facilities: Shared toilet. Toilet is not great. Hot shower available, but slow. Really hope they can improve on the shower facilites. Breakfast served at balcony (eggs, toast, banana, avocado, coffee) we stayed here and spent most our time in ostello bello, making use of their facilities and great crowd. So it worked out very well. hehe.

Very good value for money”

This hotel in Inle Lake was our best quality-money ratio while in Myanmar. The room was spacious with windows towards the interiour court. A wall of big flower pots was covering the view, creating a sense of intimacy. Good breakfast, but service very slow. The shared showers were clean, but not the toilet, as the kids of the staff were using it too and they only use it by squating on the toilet seat while wearing muddy shoes. Bad internet connection. Only worked once for like 5 min. We had 3 nights in this hotel, so the first day, the first thing we did was to book a bus from Inle to Yangon. The last day we are waiting for the pickup that doesn't arrive. The lady starts making lots of phone calls, but doesn't tell us anything. Last minute she drives us to a bus, other than ours, because the one we had booked 3 days in advance, had sold our seats. Even though it was not directly her fault, she excused herself and manage to correct this problem, so we were able to leave on time. But what a negative experience!

It was very nice stay. We came in very early -shortly after 6 am. So our room wasn't free yet but they offered us another one if we want to rest before our room get's ready! We booked a boat trip with the hotel and also a bus ticket to Yangoon. Everything went smoothly. Breakfast was very good. We got a nice and spacy room with big bathroom. We would definetely recommend this place as it is very close to everything in the city.
