We had a really well-rested night there just on the day before returning home after 10 days of Mynmar. The breakfast is great, (Mohinga for breakfast is a speciality, guaranteed). The owner Wai Wai is a very kind and friendly person :) Good English too, and quick response either by phone or email. Support this place, a recent venture, and a sure fair price (Oct. 2013, 35$ double room w/BFast) for a spacious room with air con in such a welcoming B&B stay (only 5 rooms) in a house. It's a quiet street in a residential area and barely any traffic. Crows crow a lot during the afternoon and there were a couple of termites on the furniture, but to complete surprise to the owner, who has probably taken care of it by now.
It's just off Pyay Road to the north, making it easy to get taxis everywhere in the city, as well as being close to the airport.
Amidst the hotel racket of Myanmar, this is surely a pearl.
