In the bustle and dust of Mandalay, this little hotel is a gem. All the staff were very friendly, warm and helpful. The rooms were clean with water and coffee provided (for those of you who are black coffee drinkers: it was a pre-mixed 'three-in-one' with creamer and sugar...might be worth waiting for the coffee at breakfast). Breakfast, which is included in the price, is served at the rooftop bar/restaurant and has tons of options (Asian, western breakfasts, omelet bar, lots of fruit, bread to make toast, coffee, tea, etc.) and fresh watermelon juice. The hotel provides a free rum sour to guests each evening and a traditional Burmese music performance at the rooftop bar also every night. Also free wifi! For what the hotel provides, the price is very reasonable. I would not consider any other hotel if I were going back. If you are a very light sleeper, consider bringing earplugs with you to Mandalay - there was always a buzz of activity out the window each morning, but you will get that anywhere you stay in the city. It's nestled along a bustling little side street, near a ton of street food and within close reach of any cab driver you want (best option in Mandalay is just to talk to individual cab drivers -- they'll find you right as soon as you walk out of the hotel, don't worry -- and work out a price for them to drive you to wherever you need to go). The hotel is located close to the Moustache Brothers show venue (another highly recommended activity). Also recommended is Yan, a really friendly guy with nearly perfect English who is studying to become a licensed tour guide - he can give you unofficial guided tours of the city and environs now. Email him at yannaingmoe.Iso@gmail.com to set up a tour.
