Gypsy Inn

The Gypsy Inn is one of the first hotels seen by travellers who reach Nyaung Shwe via Inle Lake and its location is the only positive feature we could find -- the aloof and unconcerned manager certainly isn't one.

The room we were shown had gaudy pink walls and a musty odour, but in fairness was kept clean overall. Rooms are no-frills and feature little more than a bed with upstairs rooms boasting views of the canal. Very basic rooms with shared bathrooms are available and among the cheapest in town. WiFi is currently only available in the lobby. A European-style breakfast is provided but there's otherwise no restaurant. If you want to stay in this area we'd head instead to nearby Inle Star Motel; it's newer,friendlier, and overall offers better value.
