The hotel just opened this past May. It is clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced. It's on the west side of the train station, but noise from the station is not a problem. You can walk to the moat, and to tea shops and restaurants in the downtown area. You can certainly find cheaper accommodation in Mandalay but you get what you pay for: the rooms here are much less cramped than in the average backpackers' places. Breakfast in the morning, served buffet style, includes fried rice and noodles, not just the usual toast and jam and eggs. The free wifi connection is pretty fast. Staff at the reception desk speak English and Chinese. Overall, a good experience.
