This is a great hotel, quite near to the main railway station (if you're using trains) and the hospital (if you become ill). During the daytime it's easy to find - it's on 28th Street near the corner of 77th Road. At night it's easy to spot from a distance because it's well lit. Be wary, at nights in Mandalay the power often goes off early in the evening, forcing the unwary to wander along in darkness. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are very, very helpful. Khaing Khaing, on the reception desk is very obliging - she even stuck down a corner of my I-pad screen protector which refused to stay down. In fact the sticky tape she used is still going strong, despite all the travelling since then. Take a long walk to the Mandalay Palace and then organise a motor bike taxi back. On the way to the palace watch out for some large concrete tubs just around a corner on the right hand side of the main road where people do their daily bathing. Once you enter the palace stay on the main road as the side roads are off limits - there is a military base there. The treasures inside are some of the best I've seen in Asia. Climb up the tower to get a good view of the palace and the city beyond.
