About This Listing
Balcony view on our highest floor, on a clear day you can see the Mandalay Hill!
I stayed for 2 nights at Ma Ma guest house. Its location is good and on a quiet lane with no through traffic in an attractive leafy part of town. The three friends I was travelling with also booked rooms at the same time.
We saw little of Su Nwe during our stay . Her mother welcomed us on our arrival and a young girl served us breakfast on the roof terrace with lovely views over the neighbourhood.
My room was basic but spacious, clean, quiet and functional and there was a good sized shower in the bathroom with plenty of hot water .
I enjoyed staying in this guesthouse and the family were very welcoming. I was in Mandalay just for a short period of time and I appreciated the advice I was given of what to do and where to go.
It was a lovely clean room and the owner facilitated a taxi share to the port the next day. The guest house is very used to sole travellers. You simply don't get this advice and support when you stay in bigger more formal places.
We had a super time staying at Ma Ma Guest House. The rooms are exactly as described on the website and the Guest House has a very nice roof top for enjoying breakfast and also evening dinner and drinks.
Su and her family were wonderful hosts: we were helped to get the boat ticket to Bagan, we received excellent tipps for dinner choices, had a wonderful day-trip organized including a packed breakfast pick-nick for sunrise at U-Bein-Bridge.
Thank you very much Su and your family for making our stay so unforgettable in Mandalay.
The house is a modern guest house with about 9 rooms on the first and second floors. Outside the room is a small seating arrangement for a bit of outdoor living. Breakfast is served on a pleasant roof-top terrace. The room was functional & clean and bathroom had a large shower. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to meet Su and hear her stories of Mandalay as she was not in the country.
I had such a great stay at Ma Ma's Guest House that I extended my stay.
The rooms are so well designed and spacious. The service whether it is breakfast served, tours arranged, room service, or dinner prepared upon request is outstanding! You won't find a more pleasant Guest House that tries its best to be responsive, yet provide outstanding service. Her mother is a walking Wikipedia on Myanmar.
I stayed at Ma Ma Guest House for 2 night during my trip in Myanmar and it felt like being at home. The room was simply decorated but big and very clean. Su Nwe and her husband are great hosts, they helped me and my boyfriend arranging a day tour around Mandalay and transport to our next destination. We got a breakfast box on our last day when leaving at 6am which was very thoughtful!
The location is close to Royal Mandalay and a little further away from downtown; taxis are pretty cheap so it's easy to get around anyway.
I would definitely recommend staying at Ma Ma Guest House :)

About the Host, Su Nwe
I am learning the ropes of being a hotelier from my world renowned mother, Alice the owner of Peacock Lodge. Hope you have a pleasant stay with us.
P.S. I am trying to learn the piano! If you happen to know how to teach me, I'll be a patient student.
