Despite it still offering the cheapest private rooms in town, the Burmese Inn was empty when we last visited.

Photo of Burmese Inn
The least expensive rooms are in a dilapidated wooden and bamboo longhouse that looks over a secluded corner of the lake. Though it’s hard to complain at these prices, the mattresses are rather hard and lumpy, the attached cold water bathrooms are quite dire (the toilet in the one we saw was missing a seat) and generally the rooms feel more like "stable" than "inn". For those with a few more baht to spend, the freestanding bungalows here are rather more comfortable and they all have TVs, though the beds are rock hard and they don’t offer the greatest value. At least they are cleaner -- we even saw a staff member mopping one of them down. On the upside, Burmese Inn has a great location on a green hillside very close to the wooden bridge. Staff don’t speak much English and they often seem a bit distracted, but they do offer a sort of scrapbook that contains a wealth of info on the area, including on history and cultures, and they can arrange an array of tours. The attached restaurant is filled with Burmese trinkets and antiques and is a good place to relax. The "Burmese noodle" dish we tried tasted exactly like Thai pad see-ew, but it was tasty. WiFi is also free here.
