A good deal
Inle Inn is a low-key, family-run guesthouse offering very good value rooms with only a minimal high season supplement. The friendly Intha family have added two rows of rooms aside their main wooden house, creating a cosy, covered seating area between.
A wooden block to the left has pleasantly decorated and recently (as of 2016) renovated fan-cooled rooms with varnished woven bamboo wall covering. A newer block contains spacious air-con rooms. Bathrooms have toilet and shower cubicles separated by a sink and mirror space.
Plenty of flowers and plants are squeezed into the minimal space and the friendly owners give Inle Inn an intimate, welcoming feel. Rates are reasonable for what you get and it’s always good to see only a token high season increase. Pleasant communal areas with a small library add to the relaxed feel, and their brekkies look good too.
The Inn’s only slight disadvantage is its location. They are one of the last spots down Yone Gyi as it heads out of town to the east. It’s not so badly located for the market area and downtown restaurants and though a hike from the waterfront you can always get a bicycle.
