“Conveniently located with a friendly staff”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

A convenient modern hotel located across the street from the Mandalay train station. Though a relatively new hotel I appreciate that it is decorated in traditional Myanmar style (Check out the photo of the wood carving on the staircase). I spent four days here in a large room with beautifully carved wood furniture. The bed was large as well and equally comfortable as the room. The bathroom always had extra hot water (something I learned to appreciate even more spending almost a month traveling throughout Myanmar) with all the amenities (shampoo, toothbrush, razor….). I was on a high floor and was not bothered by the noise that other reviews have mentioned. Stepping out of the front door of the hotel though one can see this is a major intersection. The staff was excellent always aiming to please. Breakfast was included in the price of the room serving both Asian and Western cuisine in a delicious manner. I ate dinner in the hotel twice and was not disappointed on either occasion.

This hotel very nice. We had a massive room overlooking the majestic Train station across the road. Our room was quiet, large and very clean and there is a restaurant upstairs which has marionette entertainment some nights. The food is ok but some dishes could be improved upon. There is an outside deck area to view the streets below adjoining the restaurant. Staff are very friendly and if wanting a massage, try GGG on 27th St. Hotel is only a couple of blocks from a large mall so everything is nearby that you could need. Some good shops in between also. Beware though, in June, Mandalay was very very hot and humid.

Room Tip: We had 4th floor overlooking Main Street area and it wasn't very noisy so most rooms would be go...

The hotel was really good under all dimensions. The staff was really friendly and helpful, the room was clean and tidy, and the food was amazing, especially the fried noodles... All that at a reasonable price!

I would recommend this hotel to any traveler passing through Mandalay.

Location is directly opposite Railway Station so ideal I'd arriving by train. The airport is an hours drive away (ie well out of central Mandalay).

Staff very helpful arranging taxis etc.

Food was variable. Burmese food very tasty as were some western selections. Burger disgusting however.

Free cocktails every night (basic local spirits with lime juice etc). Wine selection poor (only Burmese wine which is perhaps the worst on earth).

Rooms a tad on the basic side but decent size, view of surrounding areas pleasant (in a third world way). It's a three star hotel in a poor country so you can't expect too much.

All things considered its a good hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for over a week and highly recommend if visiting Mandalay. The location is extremely central and lots within walking distance including rail station, Mandalay palace, lots of shops, restaurants, banks, ATMs, etc. Diamond Center and large grocery and other shopping are nearby as well. Taxi and motorbike stands are just outside the hotel so transportation never a problem and of course the staff is very, very helpful.

The hotel itself seems fairly new and is very nicely decorated in traditional Myanmar style. The rooms are huge and have all the amenities you need, or you can ask at reception if something you need (like hair dryer, etc) I especially appreciated the in-room safe.

Nice selection for breakfast - usual rice, noodles, etc plus lots of breads, egg station and always had an additional veggie or main dish, plus sausages and fresh fruit.

There is a small fitness center with modern equipment. And a really great rooftop restaurant - they even have a daily happy hour with free, yes FREE, drinks. Can't beat that. There is also a nightly entertainment program - dancing, puppets, etc. Even if you aren't staying at the hotel, I recommend the restaurant. It has great views of all of Mandalay. Nice for a sunset drink or fun place to wind down the evening. They have good Myanmar food as well as some Western and other asian dishes. Very reasonably priced too.

Highly recommend this hotel - the staff is great and very accommodating and the hotel has everything you need. The central location a huge plus too.

The hotel seems to be rather good,but there was som work going on in the restaurant area. This made som noise , and also reduced the number of seats for dinner. But the staff was very nice , and did their very best to serve us. We tried the local recipies, and the food wås very good. Not as spicy as thai food,but still with very good taste. As a curiosity the hotel invited us to the bar - they offered the GIN-we paid the tonic!! We will introduce this when back in Norway!Everything good until checking out. The staff on work(in the evening)did not know how to handle credit cards!! So I had to pay in cash!

Room are big , but unfurnished. I had the tv at at least 10m from me..

Location is great but next to a very big roundabout which emplied to be up at 6 am when the traffic starts and you can hear it perfectly from the 4th floor.

No hairdryer in the room- why?!? You need to ho to the reception and ask for one and then they give to you, a pretty old one as well..

Breakfast not so good on the top floor with so much air conditioning on that you needed a scarf and sweather on!

In addition there is not so much space to get out of the car, you are already in the middle of this busy busy road!
