It's been our 4th visit to May Myo in as many years. After trying all other establishments in the area, we decided to give this hotel a chance. Must say we were not prepared for such a treat. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. For any request they immediately reacted quickly and efficiently, which was very admirable.
The rooms are very well appointed, beautifully decorated and well maintained. Two caveats still need attending to, as they are in the way of making this hotel the real gem it should be.
The first one being the bathroom tiling, which is a real mess. The floor tiling is made of some unfinished and unsealed marble, that has long gone given way to its past splendors, and is now stained and impossible to stand on, lest you put on slippers. Real shame.
The second problem is the cold. We were in May Myo in February, when the nights are cool. The room is big, and hard to heat. The air-con is only on cool, and had its warming mode disabled. The fireplace is beautiful, but not functional.
In short: change the bathroom floor tiles, and put some heat into this room, and you have the most efficiently-running, charming and well appointed hotel, not only in May Myo, but in all of the Mandalay region. and then will receive the 5th star it so deserves.
We love this hotel, and will be back in 2014 for sure.
