It is very noisy here. You can hear all the traffic passing by and the walls are so thin you can hear your neighbours talk...going to the toilet and so on. Don't bring an alarm clock...the rooster will wake you up. Around 4 pm. The garden is lovely...a nice place to relax. Staff is friendly. The prices are way to... More

The hotel rooms are pretty basic: our room hosted two beds and a cloth hanger plus additional space for the luggage and had an ensuite bathroom. Everything was reasonably clean and our room got cleaned and the beds were made every day, which is an excellent service for a guesthouse. The breakfast was standard: eggs and toast with butter and... More

Prebooked via email & my booking was honoured upon check in. I had a small single room with two single beds, wet room but shower between the toilet and basin. Fan on table between beds. No wardrobe just rack with hangers. Good shower with good hot water. Power point in bathroom, small bath towel (found that strange), soap, toilet paper... More

This was our most expensive night in Myanmar so far. We paid 25 for a double room but it was worth it. Huge clean rooms, nice big private bathroom and nice staff. Breakfast is included and is served in their beautiful garden. Breakfast is pretty standard, omelet, coffee and toast. The location of May's guesthouse is a little disadvantage but... More

The location is convenient to town but on a side street, and right across the street from a monastery. Fascinating watching the children come out with their bowls for their morning walk as you eat the very good breakfast. Hot showers, clean, excellent staff, reasonable wifi (for Myanmar) overall great vibe and amenities. Will stay there next time we are... More

We turned up at 3am without reservation and the staff were brilliant about it! May is a super cute guest house in a central location. The staff were all very friendly and so helpful - they helped with directions, bike rentals, taxi and tour bookings. The included breakfast was tasty and served very quickly as soon as you wandered onto... More

$25 for a double room is more of a flashpacker than backpacker rate in Myanamr but the service you get for it definitely compensates: breakfast inc (scrambled eggs, toast, jam and tea/coffee), waterbottle everyday, daily change of towels and bed sheets and overall really helpful recommendations and indications from the staff at the reception. Only downside is that the area... More

Very cute and clean guesthouse. The rooms are spacious and clean. They have running hot water. There is plenty of outdoor space to just sit and relax. Wifi is quite good throughout the entire area. Although, the walls are paper thin, it's not a very noisy place. The only con is the 5 am prayer that comes over the loud... More

Really kind people welcomed me and helped me do everything from rent a bicycle to find the winery to book a bus. Quiet, comfortable rooms. And the WiFi was much better than the rest of Myanmar. Rooms included breakfast. I can't recommend this place enough.
