Staff are friendly and welcoming, making this one of our cheapie faves.

It’s a cute, family-run operation that’s seen a family townhouse converted into a reception and cafe area, with a string of one-storey rooms squeezed into the former yard. Thirty years ago they may have parked their ox-cart here and there would have been chickens pecking around in the dirt. Now a tiny but well maintained garden surrounds the old house and newish, bungalow-style (at least in Nyaung Shwe) accommodation. Though nothing flashy, for the price the rooms are well-appointed and comfortable, and we liked the lack of the usual high season jump in rates.

Rooms are clean and come either fan-cooled or with air-con. The former are in the old wooden house and the latter also have private balconies. All have hot ensuite showers and breakfast is included. Decor is spartan but rooms are cared for; the air-con room beds we saw were even strewn with petals. Fan rooms are simpler but also reasonably sized and well kept. Free tea and coffee is available all day long in the small cafe.

The location is also good, among the group of sights along Phaung Daw Pyan Road. A few cafes lie in the immediate vicinity and it’s only a short walk to either the main drag Yone Gyi or the riverside boat jetties.
