A very pleasant surprise in the heart of downtown Yangon. Just steps away from Sule Paya, a few blocks away from the market, walking distance to the train station. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff very accommodating.

This hotel is not a luxury hotel but the location is in a very good place. There are shops & markets which is nearby this hotel. The rooms are average but it is enough for a middle class family. The prices range will be between US$45 - US$70 per room. There will be free internet at the reception for the...

The hotel has a very good location to visit the city and walk around chinatown or the market. The rooms are basic, nancy fancy but the staff are helpful. Ask them to get you the taxis. They will avoid you being ripped by the taxi drivers.

The May Shan occupies a prime position on Yangon’s Sule Pagoda Road, as a matter of fact, the Pagoda was almost literally outside our window. The staff were great and very helpful but sadly that’s about all the positives for the May Shan. The May Shan calls itself a hotel, but I don’t think anything much has changed from when...

Well, another annual return to the only hotel I've ever stayed at since making my first trip to Yangon back in 2011. I won't write that much for this review since I'd just be almost repeating myself word for word from last year's review (which has lots of detailed info about the surrounding area). * To see that review just...

I liked the May Shan, though it is nothing fancy. The lobby reminds me of my grandfather's living room. Old style furniture, the family tv, a bit of clutter. Our room is the triple and overlooks the street. One has a view of the 2,000 year old Sule Paya, though it is not a direct view. The room is clean...
