Friendly, clean and a good location
85, Myawaddy Rd T: (081) 209 417
The May Guesthouse is on a quiet street that's easy walking distance to several of the town's most popular restaurants as well as the night market.
Rooms are clean but simple, contain very narrow bathrooms and have beds that are quite firm. We dealt with a friendly staff member who spoke English fluently and was knowledgable about the area. All rooms contain an outdoor seating area, great for reading or enjoying a morning coffee. The overall atmosphere and mood make it one of the better guesthouses in town for meeting other travellers. A basic European-style breakfast is included or you can arrange to have local Burmese; it'll be served in the garden. Bicycles are available for hire and they'll provide useful maps of the area. If you need WiFi be sure to let them know because it's not available in all of the rooms. We liked the staff, price and location; worth considering.
