I had booked this hotel online, throught www.agoda.com, for just one night. I payed 25 USD and I must say it is overpriced because the room had no private bath. The shared bathroom has turkish toilets.
My room was very clean, spacious, and with air conditioning and Tv.
The hotel is very clean. The staff is very kind and helpful and I found an excellent service. The breakfast, included in the price, was reasonable for what we pay.
In my opinion, for less we get the same quality or better.
I stayed in this hotel for three night in a single room with private bath and fan. I liked the service and the breakfast, inluced in the price. The staff was very kind and helpful. The hotel provides some trips around Mandalay.
Single room with fan
Single room with air conditioning
Double room with air conditioning
The room includes private bathroom, breakfast and wifi.
Great little hotel in Mandalay. Clean, tidy, close to good bars and restaurants, (price wise and quality that is)
Breakfast is included. Some of the staff can be a little difficult to communicate with, but overall, great place.
They are happy to arrange transport.
the E.T Hotel in Mandalay: I found to be just what I wanted in the way of accomodation...The rooms were clean with twin single beds, Air Conditioning, your own ensuite shower with hot and cold water...also the breakfast is good..all for $8.00 US /night..There is a book exchange...bicycle hire..the security is good .and the proprietors will help with information on local sights and how to get there..The location is handy to all that I wanted to do..as I came from the airport which is 50 kilometers out of town...I shared the taxi and the cost with other travellers..who also stayed here..
We moved to this hotel for our second night in Mandalay, and were very happy with all aspects of the hotel. The counter service was excellent, restaurant clean and a great buffet dinner range available. The room was spacious, with a wonderful view of Mandalay Hill, and was located opposite Mandalay Palace precinct. A very generous buffet breakfast was included in the price.
This hotel is NOT government owned for those who prefer to avoid these.
This hotel was recommended by another traveller - who proceeded to rip us off after suggesting that we "share" a taxi with him from the airport. We did not realise that we would be paying for his much longer trip. Did not bode well for a good start at the hotel!
The location of this hotel is in Chinatown, and its therefore in a reasonable location for getting around on foot. The room was quite comfortable and roomy, albeit relatively basic. The bathroom was big, and had both bathtub and shower - NO toilet paper. Also have to add that the shower was completely cold, and there was virtually NO water pressure.
Breakfast was included in the $25 price, but it was a fairly sad little affair! An oily egg, cold toast and jam and a three-in-one powder coffee mix.
Hotel is also located close to the railways station - and the trains were quite loud, sufficient to wake me several times during the night.
The hotel had a lift, but you were forced to use the stairs when the power was off, which occurred twice during the 18 hours we were there.
This is a former house that has been converted into a hotel. It has large rooms with each room having its own bathroom.
It is clean and the staff are friendly.
The Sedona Hotel is a 4-5 star hotel. I must admit it was a welcome respite after some very solid day's touring. One day we even used the very nice pool! Another day when we came in very late we had the buffet dinner which was excellent value (US$12.00). Even if you don't stay at the hotel I would recommend going to the hotel and partaking of the international buffet. They even had glasses of French red wine for US$6.00- not bad!
One of the few hotels in Myanamar that accepts credit card! I have mentioned some of the other aspects of the hotel already. It also has a bar area where you can play pool and a shop which sells various souvenirs/jewellery (and you can use the credit card provided it is more than $300.00). The hotel also has internet facilities. When we were there you could send an email from the hotel and receive emails addressed to the hotel for free.
It has a pool, gym, massage facilities. Rooms are large air conditioned and have satellite TV!
It is also very close (walking distance) to the Green Elephant and the Mandalay Marionettes show.
On returning to Mandalay for one night before travelling on to Inle, I arrived quite late at night from the train and thought that the excellent Royal Guesthouse would be full (see seperate tip) so I gave this place a try. I'd seen it before and it was fairly central.
The foyer area is cool and pleasant and the reception staff all speak good English. I was given single occupancy of a double room on the fifth floor (with a fairly boring view!) and it was spotlessly clean, with en-suite bathroom, satellite TV and minibar. It was great for the night, and after a long day on the road (train, technically), certainly gave me a good nights rest. My only slight quibble is that it was 18 USD for the night. This isn't a lot by European standards, but it proved to be one of the more expensive place I stayed.
One thing to beware of. If you are watching the satellite channels, you are entirely at the whim of the staff downstairs - you watch what they want to watch!
This is also a decent place to change money.
The photo shows the nice air-con bar / restuarant that seemed never to have any patrons - no idea why.
La entrada al hotel es algo agobiante, ya que se hace a traves de las tiendas y puestos del mercado y ademas como la energia esta racionada es muy posible que haya que subir andando los cuatro pisos.Una vez arriba las habitaciones estan bien y el trato es excelente
El desayuno es bueno , especialmente una especie de sopa de pescado
The hotel entrance it is a bit oppresive , because you get to it through the shops and stalls of the market and besides as the energy is ration it is very probably that you must go up the four floors. Once there , the rooms are O.K. and the treat is excelent
Breakfast is good , spetially a kind of fish soup
It was such a nice atmosphere and Very helpul staff near you.. They always have smile on their face and lovely and homely.. we stayed there for quite a bit and it's only $6 a night and top breakfast with a view to Mandalay Hill.
Location is really handy and it's near by Mandaly most porpular market, Royal Moat, and only a few minutes away from Local top restaurants.. Definately recommanded for everyone.
The Royal is deservedly the most popular guesthouse in Mandalay and very often full, so make a reservation or arrive early.
The rooms (different categories from 6-15$, double) are all pleasant and modern, the staff are efficient and the whole place is so clean, you could eat from the floor.
The Sedona Hotel is a 5-star Singaporean-owned hotel in Mandalay. It is within walking distance to many restaurants and shops, although the main part of the city is a 5 minute taxi ride away.
At the time I was there (January 2005), it was the only place in the whole city that accepted credit cards. If you are running short on cash, it's a good option. With no access to ATMs, what you bring into Myanmar is pretty much it so it was nice to be able use the plastic instead.
The hotel is fairly pricey for Myanmar at $102. We paid $90 per night by offering to stay two nights. One tricky thing about using you credit card is that they charge you in US Dollars and then convert it to Singapore Dollars. Your credit company will then convert it to your home currency. So expect about $10-$15 in fees on top of the room rate.
The best thing about the hotel was the fact they accepted credit cards.
Second best was their breakfast buffet (where I recuperated much of the room tariff each morning).
It's a building without any style. We chose it because there were only those similar choices of hotels in Mandalay. However, considering rate, location, rooms, service, it's really not bad. Rates are from US$5/bed to $25/room.
Don't have a picture of the hotel with me so I just upload a picture of the market closeby.
Breakfast is good.
Staff very very friendly and helpful.
Close to the big market.
Perfectly adequate guesthouse within walking distance of the Palace. It is well-kept and colorfully painted and the management will help arrange day trips and onward-travel.
Local taxis lurk outside and it is a simple matter to arrange transportation.
A single room without A/C is $8
A double with A/C is $15
