Very small, clean, local, downtown property in a great location. Good breakfast, nice people. We enjoyed an inside room (no window). Bathroom was modern, and all was great for the price. One caveat, the shower head is over the toilet, so you get everything wet when you shower. All rooms are the same issue. Be careful with a credit card... More

Went with a couple of friends on a weekend trip. This is small hotel but in downtown area. Literally, a stone throw away from Sule Pagoda. We got the windowless room since the 3 pax room were all taken. The upside for this is you don't here the chanting that other reviewers have posted. It was good enough for a... More

I stayed here one night. Great location, great price ($45/night) and a good breakfast. The rooms were very small and cramped - the same can be said about the lobby. However, it did not matter for the location was centrally located. I will surely stay here when I return in a few months.

This is the closest hotel to Sule Pagoda which is the most famous landmark of downtown Yangon. While it's apparently a plus point, the pagoda makes 24/7 loudspeaker chants. Get this hotel if you want to be close to the action but never if you need piece of mind. I saw some bad reviews like disgusting medicine box, view of... More

Spent 2 nites there in Jan 2014. Great location and had the triple room with a great view over the street etc. But we drew the short straw as there was some 24x7 chanting festival thing going on the entire time and we didn't get a wink of sleep. So paying the price premium to be there turned into a... More

This hotel placed anywhere other than Myanmar (Burma) would be a no-no, however in Myanmar it is and therefore its charms cannot be overlooked - unless you are lucky enough to consider money no object. The hotels major attraction is its location and friendly family run atmosphere. The hotel is overlooking the Sule Pagoda and is walking distance to the... More

We stayed at MayShan for a night at each end of our trip... great location in Little India (close to lots of great places to eat, and Sule Paya) and staff were helpful in arranging taxis, letting us into the room early, etc. Room was clean, but fairly small (particularly the second room we had) and with no window. No... More

Stayed for one night in a twin room with air conditioning. Basic room. We had the room without a window which was perfect. Slept well with air conditioning on. Basic breakfast of instant coffee, toast , banana and bread. Free internet worked great. Great location. We walked to the National Museum, shwe dragon pagoda and Scott market.

at $69/night for a double room this basic but clean accommodation is very overpriced, but you will be hard pushed to find much cheaper in Yangon. We paid for a room with a window but never once opened the curtains or window because there's no view at all! Just a wall! Very near sule pagoda and a decent (if not... More

We were supposed to stay there for two nights but left after the first night. The neighborhood is pretty dodgy, the room had no windows, an annoying light from the hallway were shining into the room and you had to hold the shower head yourself while showering. Not least was the breakfast pretty bad. Two pieces of dry bread and... More
