This cosy place is a perfect base for exploring downtown Yangon. Located on historic Shwe Bon Thar street, colonial heritage, famous religious buildings, Mahanbadoola Park and Bogyoke Market are all located within walking distance. Good restaurants and cafes are also near.
The apartment is typical colonial/Birmese style, with heigh ceilings and lots of teak wood. It has been recently renovated and decorated. Upstairs there is a mezzanine-style master bedroom with a king size bed and attached bathroom. Downstairs there is a small second bedroom that best sleeps one, but can sleep two if needed. There is nice little balcony overlooking the street.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
Depends on whether I am traveling or also in Yangon. I have good local friends who can help with transport (taxi) and other needs.
I can arrange pick up at the airport or from elsewhere by a local friend who speaks good English and drives a taxi so you have a hassle-free arrival. He/his car can also be hired for sightseeing purposes.
The main thing I value is to treat everyone around the place well.
