“Kitschy and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Although we didn't meet Prince Charming or find a glass slipper, we had a very comfortable 9 nights here. The room was big enough to spread out in, the water pressure was good, the fridge was stocked with water and drinks, and the A/C was very welcome after a day spent in Mawlamyine's sweltering heat. Our room had a small balcony with a view towards the large temple on a hill that dominates the town. The staff were attentive and helpful, helping us figure out the wifi (good), ready with a smile and greeting whether we were coming or going.

The decor is a bit overdone; every available inch of the hall walls and stairwell is covered with wood carvings, puppets, large plaques describing available day trips, nodding cat figures, clocks... you name it, it's there!

The dining room is reasonably priced, with white gloved waiters trying to fit all the many plates on the good-sized table. Breakfast of fried rice was better than the pallid toast and oily fried eggs offered as Western fare. We also appreciated the biscuits, thermos of hot water, instant coffee, and fruit plate provided in the room every day.

The hotel is located two blocks above the river front and within easy walking distance of a couple of restaurants and the BBQ stalls that spring up on the esplanade each evening at sundown.

Like everything else in Myanmar, prices are rising as investors and tourists pour in. We think the $50 US is a bit steep for what is on offer, but we'd come back again just for the smiles!

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back to avoid street noise.

We stayed there for two night and we really satisfied the hotel's service and staff's supports. Food are at just normal price at restaurants outside, may be even cheaper. Lunch and dinner can also get at hotel with a reasonable price until 9:00pm. No swimming pool. WiFi is good.

Room Tip: Location in downtown, pagodas and night market on strand road along the river. Reasonable price.

Our deluxe double was spacious and comfortable, and the staff was very attentive. The hotel is centrally and conveniently located. Don't overlook the restaurant--they have very nice food if you are in the mood to eat in air-conditioned comfort instead of out on the pier! The Cinderella is definitely the place to stay in Mawlymine if you can afford a step up from the most basic budget accommodation.

A modern hotel in a convenient location. The staff are amazing. They wear white jackets and gloves and even bow to guests. The Service was excellent. The room was spotless and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. WiFi works in rooms.

I note that another reviewer has commented about road noise but we were not disturbed. The hotel is not located on a particularly busy road.

Our Myanmar experience was so magical until we arrive at this hotel...Very spacious rooms indeed and looks comfy but nights are horrible due to the terrible noises of the street trafic.

Regarding the personal,
Well you never get twice the same information unfortunatly so you should always verify by yourself... Also you just have the feeling that they want to steal you as their prices are always 3 times (and even more) more expensive than they neighbours (taxi, excursions...)
The women at the desk are so unkind and not helpul at all compared to the local people... Indeed after having an accident nobody at the desk offered help, but keep laughing at their desk!
