Nice and cosy stay

Clean, downtown
A Pleasant stay with good location. Room is clean, aircon, water heater are properly working. No Wi-Fi available during 2 days stay. Room is small for 2 persons, and small outdated TV with not many channels to watch.

Centrally located
This hotel I would not want to stay there ever again, I booked the room with a small window which I never opened as there was nothing to see plus you got the smell from all the rubbish the locals throw out of there windows in the opposite building. Giant Rats run around down there so I did not eat any of the food at breakfast which was just 1 egg and 2 slices of toast. I could not open the wardrobe completely as it hits the bottom of the bed. Shower was useless. The only thing good about this hotel is the location. it is a 2 min walk to Sule Pagoda. I would ask no-one to stay there then they might renovate to a better standard for the price they want.

Centrally located family hotel

Central location, pleasant family staff, internet access
I stayed in May Shan several times because of its central location, easy to find restaurants nearby and easy to get a taxi. Rooms are very small, some without windows, but clean and if a bed is the only thing you need, it will be fine.

Friendly staff in a smoky hotel

Central, friendly
I booked a non-smoking room. I got a room on the 6th floor which is supposed to be non-smoking. However, the design of the hotel is such that the ventilation will circulate the air between the rooms. Sleeping on a cloud gets new meaning in this hotel if you understand my point. Otherwise the hotel is a backpacker hotel with an interesting mix of people and friendly staff.

Friendly staff runs a small, clean hotel

location, cleanliness, friendly staff, good value--among the lower-priced hotels
I was quite pleased with the May Shan Hotel overall, and would stay there again without hesitation. The location was ideal for my purposes. The hotel was clean, and the staff very friendly and helpful. My room was quite small, though adequate; but I'd prefer a separate shower stall so the whole bathroom would not get wet when taking a shower. The only meal offered is breakfast (which is free of charge). I was offered a choice of tea or coffee, but not a choice of foods. I am Caucasian (obviously not Asian), and thus was brought a "European/Western" breakfast--a fried egg, toast (on white bread), and bananas. I noticed that Asian guests were brought an Asian breakfast that included noodles. (Presumably I could have requested an Asian breakfast instead of a Western one.) I utilized the hotel's laundry service and was pleased with the result. Wi-fi is available (free of charge) in the hotel lobby, but not in the rooms. The speed of the Internet connection varied, but was generally adequate for email and light web-surfing. Two computers with wired Internet connections are available in the lobby as well; a fee is charged for their use.

Ideal location is the only compliments to describe

Location is the selling point - in front of Sule Pagoda
i checked in on 9/26/2012 and was given a room that i did not complain as what was spelt out no window i paid for 5 days 4 nights through membership booking thinking to enjoy cheaper rate after all on single person preliminary business familiarisation trip thus expected to check out on september 30, 2012. after breakfast on 9/27/2012 i decided to take a trip to mandalay from yangon that i booked from hotel reception vvip sleeping bus and departed in the evening 8:30pm, which i need to key drop the room key. before departure, the reception asked me "are you coming back again"; i replied "definitely, as my departure flight is on 9/30/2012 and i am leaving just a night or 2 and still need to come back and rest before leaving for airport, and you can sell my room for 2 nights and provided me 1 room when i return for my trip to the north" the reception replied "in that case we cannot give you any refund. i agreed but reconfirm to have a room for my return on 9/29/2012 prior checking out on 9/30/2012. during the moment of talking, some walk-in tourists came in and asking for room and room rate which the room rate quoted is for double bed with breakfast which i did not bother. i enjoyed myself in mandalay and proceeded to bagan on 9/28/2012. on 9/29/2012, i rang may shan hotel informing the reception that i am returning to the hotel from bagan by vvip sleeping bus and expected to be in yangon at 2am on 9/30/2012 thus please kindly ready a room for me to sleep. over the telephone conversation, the reception told me the hotel is fully booked and they allow me to rest in the lobby only as no more room available. i reached may shan hotel at 220am on 9/30/2012 with sleepy and tiredness and was not given a room to sleep which i had paid in advanced that supposed entitle me to check out on 9/30/2012 12 noon, and i changed and dress up myself before leaving the hotel @ 11am on 9/30/2012
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Many attactions in Yangon and base on the tourist information leaflet from the airport you can easily move around, money changers are roaming in the street BUT advisable exchange through BANKs. If have enough time, travel to Bagan to visit the UNESCO Archaeology Site and visit this famous CITY OF PAGODA with friendly people all around.
