I spent 3 nights here having booked directly by email having read the entry in the Lonely Planet guide (2014 edition). Throughout, their communication with me was 1st class and on arrival I was made to feel most welcome. This is a budget location and offers exceptional value. My room was more than adequate, with a good hot shower, a... More

We spent two nights in this guesthouse and had a really nice stay. Location is perfect, staff is extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast (esp. pancakes!) in the nice garden is tasty and the rooms are decent (even though quite thin walls). We also rented bikes from the guesthouse and booked an amazing boot trip through the Inle lake (totally recommended!!)... More

After a tiring trip from Bagan, this place was god-sent. The room was basic, as you would expect for a backpacker accommodation, but very clean, comfortable and charming, with it's wooden decor and mood lighting. May Guesthouse is strategically situated near the centre of Nyaung Shwe, which is just a stone's throw away from restaurants and Mingalar market. Bike rentals... More

Guest house is clean, quiet and green with a garden. Walls are thin (and can hear all the voices from the next rooms), bath rooms are attached, hot water is available. Breakfast included. Staffs are good. Place is not too far from the center of town. One thing bad for me is I couldn't order any food apart from breakfast.

The staff were super helpful, from booking treks to boat rides to Heho airport transport and the prices of all the aforementioned activities as well as the room were very reasonable. Pillows were stiff and water temperature was erratic- those are my only complaints. Otherwise, a great place, great location, and awesome staff.

We arrived from bagan on the very early morning but the staff was there and let us come in the lobby. Then the rooms were great and the breakfast of in the nice garden. Wi-Fi ok. You can rent bikes and they can help you to book your bus tickets or your boat trip on the inle lake! Friendly staff

A very peaceful guesthouse a bit off the main road. Rooms were rudimental but good, breakfast nice in a calm garden. Service was very helpful and kind. Recommended for backpackers and easy travellers.

Good vibe, nice staff. Breakfast is continental and tastes as you'd expect when cooked by someone who has never eaten it themselves. Not great but included in the price. You do get a pot of tea or coffee which is good for about 3 tiny cups. This is a nice touch. The place is let down by the rooms though.... More
