Budget Accommodation in Yangon MyanmarAccommodation in Yangon Myanmar
We' re planning an 8-month trip to Southeast Asia - so a good value accomodation is a must for us! After 3 wards in Myanmar we were able to stay an overnight stay of 22 525 kyats per two people. That is definitely more costly than in other Southeast Asian lands, which may be due to the fact that there is much less housing and thus less need (food and travelling here is extremly cheap)!
Each of the accommodations below has common en-suite facilities, as this really lowers costs. These are our cheap accommodations for Myanmar: Standard: 1 king-size beds, wardrobe, TV, A/C, ventilator, nightstand and Wi-Fi. bath:: On every level there is a common bath. You rent a bike for 2000 kyats, otherwise you can rent a motorcycle.

Housing Budget $10 or less in Myanmar - Myanmar Forum
I know from my research that shelter in Myanmar is a little more expensive. Had I wondered if anyone could tell me the name of inns or hotels that have a twin (2 people) room for around $10 or under in Yangon, Kinpun, Bagan, Inle Lake/Nyaungshwe and Mandalay.
We want the cheapest one! You' re going to have to raise your budgets, I think. The number of Myanmar visitors has risen sharply in recent month and the rooms are inaccessible. We' ll be in Myanmar from 7 February 2013 - 28 February 2013, do you think it is advisable to make an appointment in advanced?
At the end of November we were in Myanmar..... we contacted the hotel before we came so we didn't spend any of our lodging at all. In Yangon it costs $50 per person per day, Inle Lake $60, Bagan $85 and Mandalay $35. The Yangon and Mandalay were very simple rooms with bath and Bagan and Inle Lake were much better accommodations.
Myanmar has many more visitors and the price is much higher than in other Asiatic states. Usually you have to cover about 25 - 35 US$ / overnight for guesthouses in Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle See, as well as tourist attractions. When you are ready to spend the nights in the guesthouse, you do not need to make an appointment in advanced and it would be good to find a suitable accommodation two nights before your departure.
There is no need to make a reservation - especially as you are not in high season - but call a few nights in advanced if you want the lowest tariff. It is unlikely that Myanmar celebrates CNY or Lunar New Year, but there will be thousands of other Taiwanese, Chinese and Vietnamese holidaymakers on holiday during this year.
It is not really possible to find these rates for a 2 person twin room at this rate. We' ve done everything on a reasonable cost - we just got back a few nights ago. $30-70 for a doubler this year. Unfortunately, they are very quick-witted when you try to bargain with them about pricing.
We were still able to find a $15-20 twin room with common or en-suite bathroom. No more than $30 was needed in the main locations (Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake, Chaungtha Beach).
