YOE YOE LAY GUEST HOUSE: SO FRIENDLY, SPOTLESSLY CLEAN, & ECONOMIC

You won't go far wrong if you decide to stay at this simple and wonderful guest house where the owner Nanbwe will make you feel like a member of the family. They don't have a website, nor take an advanced deposit but you can make reservations on their FB page. We arrived at 7 am after taking the night bis from Yangon and immediately we were given a glass of orange juice. The owner, Nanbwe was very helpful and answered our questions. Even though we should check in after 1 pm she served us breakfast which was enough to keep us going all day. <br/>Breakfast consisted of---bottle of mineral water<br/> unlimited orange juice<br/> unlimited tea or coffee<br/> water melon<br/> eggs , either omelet or fried<br/> unlimited toast<br/> choice of jams<br/> pancakes or Burmese sweet<br/> bananas or other fruit<br/><br/>Nanbwe employs 7 young girls, all of which came from very poor families in the surrounding villages and not only gives them a good home but teaches them to read and write. The girls are so friendly and will carry your bags up to the room, or into the waiting taxi when you depart. They will also stand and wave you goodbye, thanking you for your stay. We left a good tip for the girls as we felt they exceeded their duties.<br/>There is also a notice board where you can post your intended city tours etc, and it is easy to find companions to accompany you on taxi trips. Five of us took a 10 hour tour by taxi which cost 40,000 kyat between us, that is $6-7 each !<br/>You can also rent bicycles or motorbikes at the guest house. There is also a small library and detailed tourist information on the walls. The guest house produces their own map with all the important attractions marked on it. The bedrooms came with a DVD player and you could help yourself from a selection of movies. The bedroom had a comfortable bed, a/c, fan and mosquito net. <br/>The only problem was that the GH was perhaps 2-3 kms from the center of the city which was a 30-40 minute walk, 15 minute bike ride or a taxi ride. When Nanbwe books your onward tickets a minibus will pick you up at the guest house to take you on the journey or to the bus station.<br/>If i returned to Mandalay i would definitely stay there again.

Fortune Hotel: A clean and reasonable hotel

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.<br/>My room was very clean, spacious, and with air conditioning and Tv.<br/>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.<br/>In my opinion, for less we get the same quality or better.

Palace Hotel: A Basic Palace

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!<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>Hotel is also located close to the railways station - and the trains were quite loud, sufficient to wake me several times during the night. <br/><br/>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.

Zeigyo Hotel: Por el mercado By the market

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<br/>El desayuno es bueno , especialmente una especie de sopa de pescado<br/><br/>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<br/>Breakfast is good , spetially a kind of fish soup

Nylon Hotel: Hotel We Stayed

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.<br/>Don't have a picture of the hotel with me so I just upload a picture of the market closeby.

Breakfast is good. <br/>Staff very very friendly and helpful.<br/>Close to the big market.

The Royal Guesthouse: Good Location

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. <br/><br/>Local taxis lurk outside and it is a simple matter to arrange transportation. <br/><br/>A single room without A/C is $8<br/>A double with A/C is $15

E.T. Hotel: E.T. Hotel

$4 per person in a double (low season), with bath and a/c (Mandalay is HOT; you will appreciate it). Breakfast is included. (The price was MUCH less than as listed on their info sheet, attached.)

This was one of the few real honest-to-goodness hotels that I stayed in.<br/><br/>Down the street is a terrific yoghurt and ice cream shop. A few blocks away is a Roman Catholic church, if it's been a while.<br/><br/>The front desk manager can help you with arranging bus tickets, etc.
