In general the cost of accommodation is from US$50 per night (for double occupancy) in Nyaung Shwe – the town on the north of Lake Inle’s shores. We have seen the following hotels ourselves on our last trip, but please remember things change rapidly. They are all in the middle of town with restaurants and shops within easy reach. Luxury and mid range hotels are available around the Lake as well but you should be aware that there will be no shops or restaurants around these hotels and you will not be able to get into town at night – there are no taxis on these roads or water taxis on the Lake at night. Tell the agent you book with your preference for modest, luxury or super luxury.
You should ask for air conditioning, a mosquito net, wifi and your own bathroom.
If you are going further afield in the Shan province or to another part of Burma, your accommodation might be a hammock in an unused building or a tent as some places are very remote and have no hotels. You need to indicate to us just how intrepid you are willing to be!
We have stayed at the 7 mile hotel in Rangoon which was reasonably priced, clean and with a good breakfast. It is not far from the airport.
