Chan Myaye Guesthouse

A favourite pick for us

What we say: 3.5 stars

Chan Myaye Guesthouse grabs a good Yangon (Rangoon) location in the middle of 34th street on the upper block of downtown. The atmosphere is pleasant, clean and offers a variety of rooms with free WiFi and an included breakfast; this is one of the better guesthouses in the city.

One of the city’s better guesthouses.

A thin and high-hung sign makes it a bit hard to find Chan Myaye, but the locals will point it out for you if you ask, or just look for the other foreigners on the street to lead you there. Climb the stairs to the fourth floor to the entrance of the lounge and reception desk. Friendly staff will be busy attending to customers, while travellers watch movies on the comfortable and well kept furnishings that fill the space.

There’s two floors to choose from at the moment, with a third floor to be added sometime later this year. The top floor is on the eighth level, and has 18 rooms. These are more basic, cheaper, quieter, and sought after by NGO workers and other long-staying visitors to Yangon. A single room for one person is US$14 or $20 for two people. This will get you a small room with a bunk bed and a shared, clean bathroom with hot water. A double room with a shared bathroom goes for $18-20. A double room with private bath starts at $23. Superior rooms, which include windows, a fridge, desk and extra seating, starts at $24. If you want to fit in extra people in any room, they charge $8 per person.

Their next level houses 16 rooms of the same selection. These rooms are slightly nicer with more furnishings and a better equipped superior and family room. These start at $25 and $35. Compared to other guesthouses in Yangon, this is an exceptional deal, and it’s almost not worth hesitating to pay the extra couple of dollars for upgraded rooms. For those looking to spend even less, they will hopefully finish their new floor in September, and this will be dedicated to dorm rooms.

Chan Myaye Superior Room

All style, all of the time.

Breakfast is 07:30-10:00 and rotates between fried rice and toast, served up on adequate tables. Laundry service is offered and the WiFi speed is impressive for a guesthouse. In the evening, the front balcony on the top floor is a great place for watching the sunset and enjoying the views. All of the features and extremely friendly service make this guesthouse a favourite pick for us and many long-term visitors in Yangon.
