“Good hotel”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

The hotel was good.
Clean sheets, clean bathroom.
AC was working. Fan if you want it.
WiFi on all floors. Breakfast was good.

Close to the royal (military) square, but hard to find good restaurants in the neighborhood. I am not sure if this is just because there are not a lot of them in Mandalay.

We arrived early morning with the bus, they told us when we reserved that the room will be ready which was not, we had to sleep in the lobby. It happened no problem then they didnt have the room that we wanted, they gave us a wrong price on the phone. Finally we ended up in a room that was dark but more disgusting full of BED BUGS and the worst of it: when we told them they didnt really care !!!! We will definitely not recommend this hôtel, the staff is not even friendly or helpful.

Central position. Several motorbike drivers in front of the guest house ready to offer their services for full day tours to Amarapura, Inwa and Sagain.
Great big rooms with mosquito nets, a/c, fan. Single room with ensuite bathroom with hot water is 17$. Breakfast is ok - nothing to really speak about but gives you some energy to start the day.
The place is nice, comfortable, cosy and very quite, with very comfortable sofas and chairs - in the reception area - to create a common room for the guests.
The staff goes out of their way to help you with all your needs, all the info you ask for, your bus tickets, hotel bookings for the next destination - and if you are a guest they charge you nothing for phone calls to guest houses at your next destination to book a room.
I arrived in Mandalay at the Typical silly arrival time of night buses - between 3.30 and 04.30 am - they let me in and allowed me and two other fellow travellers to sleep on the sofas while we waited for check in.
If you want to stay here, book in advance as the place gets fully booked real quick!
Strongly recommended!!!

Old, musty, very small Rooms, Ticks in my bed (Bad Mattress) and Way far too expressive ($17 for Single room)
Nylon Hotel same street: $20 3times larger, English TV, cleaner, Lobby More Open and Full bathroom ➡️ Lonely planet should Rethink their recommendation for Royal, in particular reg value for Money

It was located at Central Mandalay and was near to the Mandalay palace and market. The guesthouse got 3 storeys and we stayed at the top floor. The room was a bit old and it was facing towards the wall, thus no light could get into the room. But there were lights and they got wifi for each floor. We got breakfast at the dining room at ground floor, pretty small and was crowded. Breakfast was normal but the tea was as bitter as Chinese herbal tea! Some staff was helpful(a young guy), but others were cold. USD17 for a double with shared bathroom and 12 for single, cheaper than the nearby nylon hotel though.

Room Tip: Don't choose room 204 as it was facing the wall, no light could get in.

i think you can get lucky in this hotel and have a nice room upstairs, but you should never accept a room downstairs. I could not sleep all night long, i had to struggle with noise of rats running in the street (next to my head, there was a window but no glass, only a mosquito net...), sewage odours and the noise from the common bathrooms: I had to hear people peeing, spitting,....

that was my worst night ever :-(

the owner of the place told me they would fix the problem. i hope they did (placing a glass would be a good start)

The location is very good but this was the most expensive place I stayed in my month in Myanamar at $11 for a single fan room with shared WC/Cold Shower (not very good either). The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good but I wouldnt recommend it.
