A great place to stay for one night, needed to be closer to airport. Down a quiet street and walking distance to lake and new shopping centre. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

Pros - Lovely neighbourhood. - Staffs are very nice and friendly. - Rooms and toilets are very clean and spacious. - 2 minutes walk to Myanmar Plaza which is one of the best places for shopping and late night bar visits. Cons - There are no plug-points for upper deck beds which is pretty inconvenient for people like me who uses the phone in bed while charging. - The room lights are yellow and dim. Not ideal to put on makeup in the morning :D

Stayed here for one night only but service is really good. The owner helped us to buy two bus tickets in advance without charging us and just said ” tickets are non refundable” and “you can pick the tickets up and paid us when arrived” I don’t know how many guest houses that can do this for customers. We are taking the overnight bus in the next evening and the owner said we are free to use bathroom before we departure to bus station.

Quiet Hotel in the loud city”
If you want some quiet and don't want to stay downtown this is the perfect hotel. Our room was huge with window. The bathroom was ok, the breakfast good. the staff was amazing and super friendly. You can walk to the lake, there are also (pricy) restaurants and there is a big shopping mall close by if needed. We would definitely recommend this accommodation!

We arrived in the morning and this time they even could prepare the room to enter earlier than the check in-time. Room was very clean, comfortable and Air Condition working well. Staff was very helpful in helping us with bus tickets. Close to modern shopping mall with CityMart convenience store. Some good restaurants are also not far away.

Staying in quiet and secure neighborhood”
Quiet, Close to Airport (compare to downtown), Service
Like the homey feeling accommodation located at quite neighborhood near to Inya Lake. However, is hard to get dinner around the guest house (you may request guest house to cook some fried rice or others). And we found that airport pickup cost USD10 but the airport drop cost only 7000 MKK (different 5000 MKK). You shall get taxi from airport (cost around 8000 MKK)

Perfect”
breakfast, clean, quiet
When you arrive they will warmly welcome you with fresh juice. Perfectly clean room and facilities. In the morning they have top notch breakfast (everyday different speciality) with coffee/tea and fresh fruits. The location is wrong on Agoda and google maps, however correct on booking dot com and apple maps (it is 2 min walk from reported location, just ask locals). Wifi coverage is good, however the speed is slow (standard in Myanmar). Bit outside of city centre but you can get a taxi

Good option guest house”
Staff, breakfast, garden
My stay was fine. I was allowed to check in early. The staff are friendly, genuine and efficient. The room was fine, every one different. I had a small balcony. The bathroom was shared with three other rooms on the same floor. Shower was hot. Breakfast was good in nice garden area. It is a little out of town so I think most people use taxis. I walked in, circular train back plus another walk. I did get a taxi to the airport for 7000. I think the hotel books taxis without taking a cut. The hotel Is near to the lake, parts of it are good to walk around, but do not try to walk all the way round, it took me over 3 hours. I recommend this guest house.

A very lovely hotel to stay in Yangon”
Clean, Friendly, Good Location
As soon as we got there we had welcome drinks and a towel to refresh ourselves. We arrived a little late but the lady stayed to welcome us and make sure we were ok. The place is very clean and although we had a room with shared bathroom it was never busy and was kept clean by the staff. The location was good and taxi's could be found just outside the gate. The staff recommended a great bar to go to based on what we asked for.

The best guest house in Yangon, by far”
Clean and comfortable rooms, gentle and attentive staff, quiet.
This guest house is stunning in the context of Yangon. It's co-owned by a Birman couple and a young Frenchman. They have created what is, by a large margin, the best guest house in town. I tried both private rooms and dormitories, they're equally well designed and managed. Breakfast is great, on a long table in the garden. The owners and the staff are constantly attentive to our needs or desires. I highly recommend it.

Pleasent Surprise ”
We stayed here three nights and it was the place we stayed in Myanmar, and I can't recommend it enough. The owners May and Tom are amazing hosts. We arrived late by taxi which had no problem finding it to be greeted by our hosts with a welcome drink , we were showed our room a superior king which was exactly as described. Our booking included breakfast do eat the local ones they are brill. In the morning Tom gave us a map and showed where to go and advice on what to do. Research had shown us that the guesthouse was a taxi ride from the city but to be honest this was great as after a day site seeing you got away from the mussel and busses, and if you didn't want to eat out there was always something simple on offer and of course a beer. We have come back from travelling Asia for 40 days and we can honestly say this was one of the best hotels we stained they actually made you feel part of their special family. Would always go back here when next in Yangon.

Great little place to stay, spacious, super friendly staff, great location!”
Place is kept immaculately. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Its behind a well known hotel, so its easy to direct taxi drivers to it, or as a landmark when you take the local bus. Easy to get downtown, which makes it halfway between the airport and downtown. Will definitely stay again if back!

Stayed here to skip traffic and be closure to the airport. The place was very clean, friendly and they provide an amazing breakfast. However since I had previously stay downtown when I first arrived in Yangon I must encourage people to find a place closure to the action if they like to walk.

The staff treat you like family, and are incredibly attentive to your needs. Rooms are incredibly clean, and the beds are super comfortable. Its nestled in a quiet area (away from downtown), but which is very accessible by local transport or taxi. Breakfast included is a choice between local and continental. Plenty of bathrooms for shared dorms, never had to wait to use them. I'd love to stay here again, and every time I'm in Yangon here on.
