What to explore at Tokyo Guest House?
There are a lot of guest houses in Yangon’s city center, but is very difficult to find a quality place to stay for a budget price. Like most of the hotels in the city center, one of the plus points of Tokyo Guest House is its location, its proximity to the Sule Pagoda, the bus stops, the super markets, the ferry terminal, the train station and the umpteen number of lip smacking restaurants located close by. The guest house has a wide variety of rooms catering to different budgets. They have a single fan room for $11 and air conditioned double rooms for $22, $24 and $26. With the increasing price, one gets more space in the room. All the rooms are fairly good with good lighting, plug points, ventilation and air conditioning.
How to get to Tokyo Guest House?
The best way to get to the guest house is hail on a taxi. The hotel is located right in the city center, on Bo Aung Kyaw St.

Tips for you
We stayed three nights right after our arrival in Yangon and decided to go back for our last night before departure. It is true that the rooms are windowless but the friendliness of the staff and the home-cooked breakfasts make up for it. Every day, we have been served with a new breakfast freshly cooked by the hotel manager (for example we had: fried rice, japanese pickles and eggs; pumpkin soup, plain rice and vegetable curry, etc). For example, the hotel manager on our last night went down with us to get a taxi for 6000 kyats, which avoided us a hard-fought negotiation as the price for foreigners is usually set at 7000 kyats. The rooms are very clean and the wifi is free. It is located in the heart of the Indian district of Yangon, 5 minutes from Sule Paya. The neighborhood is very lively with many fruit / vegetable and street food stalls until 6/7 pm. All staff speak Japanese and English.
