I live across the street from this hidden gem. The restaurant offers excellent Shan noodles, tea leaf salad and a small range of other local specialities. Two long teak tables with benches create a friendly atmosphere and the lanterns and bamboo give a warm glow. Despite the tropical setting, it’s all very hygge. 2 people can have a great meal with beer for 10 dollars. Access note: you have to pass through the security gate of the Pyin Nya Waddy housing estate to find the guest house and restaurant.
Located in a quiet and safe part of Yangon, the Thanlwin guesthouse, offer a very peaceful atmosphere. The staff is so friendly, and ready to help you with anything at anytime. The breakfast is amazing, I recommand you to try the Burmese breakfast. The room is very clean and tidy, the mattress and pillows are good and confortable. This guesthouse it's just 5 minutes walk to the Inya Lake and even less to a shopping mall. I recommand this place at 100%.
Nice and cosy guesthouse. We spent the first two nights there. It is a quite area and a good atmosphere where you can relax after walking through Yangon. The owner and the other guys are very friendly and helpful. She speaks good English. If you get by taxi to the place, what you usually will do, tell them Yankin Township, that's helps a lot. Thanks.
Very clean family run guest house with super friendly staff. There is a large outside area where breakfast is served. Even though, this guest house is located in the big city of Yangon, traffic noise is not disturbing and the outside area is very peaceful and invites to hangout and relax. The owners English is very good. They can also organize bus tickets and provide helpful travel information for the whole country. A good starting and end point for your journey in Myanmar.
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.
