Finding many hotels booked in Yangon, I happened to stumble across the Trip Advisor reviews for BWB, which convinced me to give it a try (13, all five-star ratings).
I was not disappointed. Soe Soe's place is absolutely the best place to stay in Yangon (and the greatest deal, too). We arrived for a short two-day stay on our way out of Myanmar, and Soe Soe greeted us as soon as we arrived with sweet iced tea (that tasted just like the kind my family makes in the Southern U.S., what a treat) and insisted on making us lunch right away.
She is great, and her hospitality really made our stay. We only regret we couldn't stay longer. The home cooked food is good, with a hearty breakfast where you can chat with the other interesting guests. They have an adorable yellow lab, and it feels just like staying with old friends. Not really a hotel, it's more like a B&B, they have a large house and rent out a few rooms in it. It's located on a back road near the Israeli embassy in a beautiful and quiet, secluded neighborhood with other large homes. Of course they also lead bike tours. We weren't there long enough to get to go on one, but they sound like fun.
The rooms are clean, the wifi works, and the surroundings are peaceful, even if it is a bit away from downtown, it's well worth it. Soe Soe will help you with anything you need, from recommendations of things to see and do and eat to where to find lacquerware. If I return to Yangon, staying with Soe Soe will be #1 on my list.
