The Remember Inn is in a quiet area, close to the main street of Nyaung Shwe, where the bustle of restaurants, cafes, travel agencies and tourist bike hire is. The hotel has two types of accommodation, huge rooms with private baths for $8 and bungalows outside which are a bit more expensive. The owner speaks very good English and is a very lively person. One of the best things is that the breakfast is taken on the roof of the fourth floor, where you are surrounded by mountains, and a western breakfast is served or you can ask for a Burmese breakfast with noodle soup
The Winner Guest House is a pretty minimal 6-bedroom guest house, all of the rooms come with shared bathroom. This place is basic but clean and economical, all for $ 5 including breakfast. The best thing is the family that runs it is super friendly, always attentive and willing to help with whatever. I had a bike accident could be severe and fussed to see how I was. GH also recommend this because it is much closer to the temples to the people Nyaung Oo, saving you considerable time and fatigue on bike in repeated visits to the temples.
Although it cost me a little to book from Mandalay and I warned that would arrive on the bus at 2am when I arrived, it was freezing cold in the street because kalaw is 1,500 meters above sea level, the hotel owner told me that there was a mix up and they were full. I looked at her and said if she wanted me to sleep on the street, and then I got a room in the old hotel for $ 5, the next day did nothing more than apologize and you gave me a bigger room with private bath for $ 8 . The owner knows several trekking guides so it is a good place for fellow travelers and the price can be spread between more people
It's a little difficult to find the White House, due to the lush vegetation that hides the entrance. Once inside, you might feel a bit put off by the owners' lack of friendliness, but the hotel is very interesting. Both the rooms and the public areas are very clean and well-designed, with white stone. They boast that their breakfast is the best in all Yongon, and it really is rich and varied, including the jam menu. The terrace on the top floor has a magnificent view of the Shwedagon pagoda in the background. The price for one person is between 6 and 8 dollars.
