It is not exactly a cheap option to stay, however the excellent hospitality does make up for it. As my wife puts it, Soesoe is like a mother to us: she applied mosquitoe cream for her when she realised that my wife got some bites on her, she offered all the medical plasters she could find in her messy office for my sprained ankle when we were abt to go.
It may not be exactly in prime location but how often do you need to get to downtown? There was a local food stall just round a corner (no pictures no English menu) and we managed to walk to dinner the 2 other nights we were there (Soesoe sent 2 of her girls with us to show us the way on the first time). And it was just a rickshaw ride away from one of the station on the circular line. The staffs were very attentive too; a night we were sitting in the lobby for wifi use, they offered local green tea. Another time Soesoe herself offered to make us some food if we are hungry, which we decline as it was only just after dinner! We were also given plenty of bottled water too. Soesoe collects information from traveller so that future travelers can benefit from them. The guesthouse is able to help arrange for us taxi, rickshaw; we got itinerary recommendations from Soesoe too. She also helped us with Myanmar phone calls to aid our trip planning without extra charges.
Oh and last I absolutely love the communal living here; breakfast on a round table with other travelers, common room, lobby where we made friends and even travelled with some of them later.
