Great Staff, Good Breakfast, Nice Rooms”

Staff, Breakfast, Location

The Staff at Sin Yaw Guest House were very helpful, friendly and sweet. The breakfast was tasty and filling (with wholewheat bread rather than the gross sweet white bread every other GH in Myanmar serves!) with toast, eggs, coffee/tea, fruit. The location was on a quiet street in the southwest of Nyaung Shwe, but still very close to walk to lots of restaurants and everything. The area where boats leave for Inle Lake is incredibly close. The beds in our room were comfy and clean, bathroom clean, and there was some pretty carved bird tiles on the ceiling! Overall, pretty good value in Nyaung Shwe and very well run by super nice staff! We also rented good quality bicycles for 1500 MMK and bought overnight bus tickets to Mandalay (which, by the way, only takes 7 hours and so arrives at 2am).

Helpful Staff”

Clean Room, Good Breakfast and Helpful Staff

I stayed for 4 nights in Sin Yaw Guesthouse. During my stay, I went to Taunggyi for the Hot Balloon Festival. one of the sisters help us (a group of solo travellers) to get a shared taxi. The price that we payed was cheaper than elsewhere. I also was able to buy my ticket to Bagan with them. So, they are very helpful to find tickets/taxi or anything that you may need. The room was clean and the breakfast delicious. The Internet comes and goes like in the whole Myanmar, not their fault. However, it was way more consistent than in Bagan.

Enjoyable stay. ”

Friendly staff, central location, affiliated restaurants

We enjoyed our stay at Sin Yaw. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself is well situated in a central but quiet part of Nuang Shwe. The breakfast was tasty with coffee made from real beans (not instant!). We stayed in two rooms during our time. Our first night was in a double room with ensuite. The room was ok but bathroom could have done with a thorough clean. We were in a double room in a bamboo hut on the second night without an ensuite. The room was fine but the (outside) shared bathroom wasn't very clean and only a cold shower was provided. The stay was however positive overall and I would recommend it for a stay in Inle Lake. As an aside, we would highly recommend the two restaurants owned by the family (Sin Yaw Restaurant and Sin Yaw B Restaurant). We loved it so much that we had three meals there! Try the amazing steamed / grilled fish dishes!!!

They also have a good resto by the market place”

Very good resto in town, good breakfast etc

The hotel is a bit far from main part of town but you can walk there in 15-20 minutes or less to eat at their resto by the market place which is run by the owner's son (he speaks decent English). I ate lunch & dinner there every night - very good fish & other local dishes for 3.5k + 500 Kyats for rice. There's also places to each much closer as well while the place to get boats to Inle Lake is a short walk away. I was surprised that the place is not that old though as the rooms etc already seemed rather rundown (Poor construction?). However, the rooms are clean and there's mosquito netting over the bed. Breakfast is on the roof with a couple of egg options, toast, fruit, tea or coffee. Note that you can book an Inle Lake boat trip with them for either $18 or $22 or 18k or 22k Kyats. However, the boat man told me he's only getting a fraction of that and its better to negotiate directly with them rather than have your hotel do it as you can get a much better deal. I ended up going with two other people so we only paid $6 or 6k Kyats each for a half day trip from sunrise until after lunch (skipping lunch on the lake) - so I am not complaining. Half a day is enough as it gets hot & you will get sun burnt. They also booked my bus or rather van ticket to Mandalay - I may not have gone the best deal there either but it didn't matter as I needed to get there & a travel agent would also be taking a commission as well (Note: The bus station is in the junction several kms away - they pick you up in a truck). For a couple dollars, you can rent their bikes for the day - I took one to go to Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery & the Red Mountain Estate winery as both are too far to walk to. Otherwise, the Wifi could be intermittent at times - typical for Myanmar.
