    Great guesthouse in Yangon!”

    Price, cleanliness, friendly and helpful staff

    Thanlwin Guest House is an excellent option for those who don't want to pay the over-inflated prices for a hotel room in Yangon. Plus it's a good option for those who want to meet and converse with other travelers as well as experience a warm and friendly staff. The outdoor eating "hut" is great and the complementary breakfast was excellent. The neighborhood around the guest house is safe and much quieter and cleaner than downtown. The lake makes for a pleasant walk and to watch the busy locals go about their daily routines. Although there were some large hotel construction projects going on nearby at the time of my stay they weren't very noticeable while Thanlwin because it is located down a relatively quiet and gated residential street.

    Loved this place”

    Quiet, away from downtown, this is where I had my best quality sleep in Myanmar. Comfortable and clean rooms, comfy beds, and a great price! I stayed in the dorm room which was spacious. The bathrooms are clean and there are plenty of them! They offer a nice complimentary breakfast, a local fish that changes each day. The staff and owners all work tirelessly and always with a smile on their faces. They really want to make sure you enjoy your time in Yangon and in Myanmar. I was reluctant to spend too much time in Yangon but had I more time to spare, I could easily spend a few more days at thanlwin guesthouse in order to get a better feel for the city. Inya lake is a few minute walk away, there's a market closeby, tea houses, and a place where you can get your haircut for 1000 kyats (foreigner price!) Once again, all credits to the staff, they treat you like family there.

    Perfect location for staying out of the city center”

    After travelling around Myanmar, I came back to Yangon for my flight out wanting to stay in a quiet and comfortable place. Thanlwin met those criteria and more. It's not near the city center, but I was able to access it by bus for some last minute shopping. It's close to Inya Lake, and I found myself within walking distance of the house Aung San Suu Kyi spent 15 years of house arrest in. Additionally, it's closer to the airport than downtown, so less time commuting and less fare. The owners allowed me to check in early when I arrived off a night bus, and set me up with some delicious coffee. The dorms were cozy, and there were no complaints with the shared bathrooms around the back. Actually, made the mistake of putting my fresh towel down on the wet sink, but the staff quickly replaced it for me. The outdoor dining area also couples as a great place to sit and converse with all the other guests.The food was great and accommodating to a vegetarian diet. When it was time to leave, the owner arranged for the taxi to bring me to the post office first and wait for me while I mailed out postcards. Highly recommend this place.

    Thanlwin Guest House is my home away from home! The owners are committed to treating their guests like family. Besides having the most welcoming and helpful staff, cleanest rooms and coziest beds in Yangon, delicious breakfast *included*, delicious dinner *for extremely reasonable price*, laundry service, extra towels, airport taxi, booking domestic travel, wifi, etc., they will also go out of their way to make sure your all needs are met! It is impossible to find such exceptional quality of service and people for such an affordable price! This is an absolute gem and I imagine will only get better! I stayed in a four-bed dorm and highly recommend it!

    I had a great time at Thanlwin Guest house. They gave me tipps about which places to see and how to get there. I felt welcome from the very beginning. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the location is a bit far from downtown and so you have to take a taxi to get there. Nevertheless I highly recommend this guest house to everyone visiting yangon. It's the perfect place to start your travel and you definitely will meet people there.

    Traditional breakfast dish on day one, day two and day three

    This deservedly gets the highest Agoda rating ( 9.1 ) of any place we stayed in Myanmar. It is a high quality Guest House that probably puts many hotels to shame. The place is brand spanking new, is managed by foreigners in partnership with locals and has a great vibe. The communal eating table in the garden is a delightful touch and the highlight is the traditional dish option offered breakfast - we didnt find a better sample of local cuisine anywhere in Myanmar. Staff are professional and very helpful. Well done Thanlwin and may you enjoy many successful years of business - recommend and would go back there in a flash !

    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)

    Pleasant Stay in Yangon, Away From Pollution”

    quiet, owners and staff, other travellers

    I've tried 2 other hotels in downtown Yangon, and though they are within convenient walking distance to most places of interest, you'll have to contend with the traffic and chaos. Over at Thanlwin I woke up to the chirping of birds, instead of the incessant honks of cars, which was a nice change of pace. Thanlwin was also very generous with their complimentary breakfast. However you'll have to use the taxi to go to most places, which shouldn't cost more than 2000 kyats.

    It was great, nice, quiet and secured place. We were treated like a family. Everyone was very friendly. Glad that we made a right choice. Will stay there again if we visit to Rangoon. Don't get fooled by some people those wrote a silly comments. They want 5 stars hotel facilities and asking for so many greedy things. I would suggest these people should be staying at Sedona or other big hotels in town. ThanLwin guest houst, it was really worth it, we got what we pay for. (Ryoko & Moe from Honolulu, Hawaii)

    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.

    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.

    I enjoyed staying here so much I didn't want to leave. Guest are a nice mix between people who are in Myanmar to work and travellers. Guests also tend to be nice and quit. I was staying in a dorm for quit some time and its wasn't at all noisy. Also great staff who are really helpful and sweet and to have nice conversations with. It might seem at first that there isn't much to do in the neighbourhood, but once you explore a bit, its a nice and central location to get places without having to deal with the business of down town Yangon. Also the rooms are exceptionally clean, and there's a nice garden with trees to sit. Also the food is really nice.

    The rooms were very clean and the staff was extremely helpful with everything from arranging a sim card to overland travel to tips on what to see. The guest house is located away from the hustle and bustle of downtown which I found very relaxing. You do need a cab to go downtown (check with hotel staff for prices, I think I paid about 4000 Ks) but there is also a local bus that stops across from the Mall (Myanmar Plaza) that goes downtown for just 200 Ks.

    Could not have chosen a better location to orient ourselves to Myanmar and Yangon. We can't say enough about the warmth and friendly hospitality of the staff members here. Food, both at Breakfast and through the in-house restaurant was well above average. Location was excellent, close to the centre of the city yet on a quiet residential type street. Rooms, common areas and grounds were very clean, and the customer care level we felt was top notch.

    We were very happy with our choice!”

    We returned to Yangon for a 2 week visit after previously living there for 3 years. This time we had 3 small children with us. Traveling with small children is always a challenge but all the staff went out of their way to help us in many different matters. Our kids had a great time and enjoyed playing with the staff in the downstairs area - a nice undercover outdoor seating area that is a nice place to relax after a day in bustling Yangon. The owners are very friendly and do a lot to make sure your stay is great. The rooms are tastefully designed and very clean. Breakfasts are great - an option of a different Burmese breakfast each day or the usual continental. Always enough food and very tasty! The backup generator for the frequent power cuts meant that we could always have aircon when we wanted. The place itself is situated in a really quiet street but within a short walk to Myanmar Plaza. Would definitely stay there again.
