Inle Star Hotel has a good though noisy location on the waterfront road, just a short hop down from Yone Gyi and its eateries as well as the jetties.

We’d go for one of their air-con rooms with balcony.

While Inle Star has plenty of views over the boat activity on the canal, this means it’s going to make it very noisy early morning. Rear rooms will be quieter, but then they lack the views -- defeating the purpose of staying here, as the rooms themselves aren’t that fab. Some of the upper floor balconies (there’s four altogether) do make great spots for chilling and enjoying the views. They’ve expanded by going up rather than out, with space so limited that you need to be careful of traffic just stepping out the front door.

Fan-cooled rooms are cheap, though they are small with zero decor or charm and the ensuite bathrooms are basic too. Air-con options are much better, but then again, there’s a lot of choice in the $30-40 range in town. Staff helpful and their Inle Lake map in reception is the best we saw in town. Breakfasts get mixed reviews though their rooftop cafe is one of the best in town.

There are pluses and minuses to staying here, but if you can get an air-con room with balcony, we say buy some ear-plugs and go for it.
