“Excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

The Emperor Hotel is very new, it is in business since march 2013. The people were very friendly and helpful. The location is just fine, not far away from downtown Mandalay in a quiet street. Around the corner is Too Too restaurant, the best Shan cuisine in town. The hotel has bikes to rent at a reasonable price. Our airconditioned room was relatively small but clean and had a hot shower, cold water in the fridge, everything you would like. Internet in the lobby. We paid € 34 per night, breakfast included

We happened to be staying at the Emperor the same as Phil C. The beds are hard but no harder than many we have found in SE-Asia. The rooms are very small but clean. The layout of the bathroom is odd but it was also clean. The service of the staff was terrific. With hotel prices in Myanmar on the rise, this is about what you get for $50. The best thing about this place is the food. Breakfast is nothing out of the ordinary but serviceable. But the food at the Bistro Mandalay Café, which is next door and associated with the hotel was surprisingly good. The menu is primarily Western but there are some Asian options as well and the chef and service was terrific. After we had our first meal there, we didn't want to go anywhere else.

Room Tip: Take into account that there is no elevator in this 4-floor hotel.

I'm not sure what other reviewers are smoking... It's my second night here and, again, i'm unable to sleep. I've been sleeping in 5 star hotels as well as in hostel dorms for a couple of dollars, and I'm not a diva. For $50US a night, I don't expect royalty treatment. But at least to sleep. Which has not been possible here.

The mattresses are not stiff, they are downright hard. Some of the hardest I have laid my young body on. So it's not so much of a relief, when trying not to use the unusable pillow (even harder).

Biggest problem is the noise - concert of strau dogs barking all night long. Impossible to sleep. That after a room next door was also super noisy (paper thin walls) - which the reception took care of appropriately though.

A/C is working great. Room size is ridiculously small - though cleanliness is ok. Bathroom is kind of a joke for a hotel at that price but not my biggest concern.

So here it is, if you can handle noise and rock hard beds, by all means, sleepthere. Otherwise, forget it.

Also, staff extremely nice and more than willing to help. Lack of understanding Énglish for some of them didn't help though.

Now, a message to other travellers/tripadvisors: stop to give freaking unwarranted 5 stars!!! And tripadvisors, find a solution for unreliable business owners promoted reviews!!!

They gave me the good impression of the Myanmar people and how they treat the customer with the service mind. And it might be because the a/c in the room is very chilly which is a heaven to us when outside it's extremely hot and it's super hard to find 'ice' in Mandalay. They are very helpful. We booked the hotel via agoda though.

We stayed for two days before proceeding to Inle lake. We have requested to make phone calls for hotel booking at inle, the hotel staffs helped us without charge, very good service and friendly staffs. The room was equipped with standard hotel amenities. The breakfast is lack of choice but tasty.
