Excellent value, helpful staff
Great hot shower, treks organised very easily, onward travel organised & booked at no extra cost
I really enjoyed it. I arrived tired after a long journey & was glad to be able to organise an overnight trek reall easily, within an hour of getting there. They hold your bag for you in a locked room while you are trekking. My only complaint would be the restaurant. Staff unwilling to throw in a few veggies into my chicken curry even when I offered to pay extra. Not the best service compared to the rest of the hotel.

Good place for trekking arrangements
Location close to the dining area, experienced guides available for consult / trek arrangements, responsive personnel
The greatest benefit was the trekking know-how available on-site, treks could be arranged basically one day in advance, very proffesional and flexible guides. Staff in general were very helpful, breakfast was also good but we would not recommend the restaurant - overpriced, service - non-existent. The room was also quite pricey - too much for its cleanliness level.

Perfect location and comfort for exploration
Good value rooms. Attentive staff. Excellent breakfast.
Good choice of accommodation if you want good quality at a very reasonable price. Staff were very friendly and reacted quickly to any questions/problems you had. I had a problem with a leaking shower and they immediately moved me to another room. There was no trying to fix it whilst I remained in the room. Breakfast was buffet style and a good choice of Myanmar and Western food. Probably one of the best breakfasts during my 3-week stay in Myanmar. If you want to go trekking from 1 to 3 days then the hotel is a good place to arrange that with guides who visit during the afternoon/early evening between 4pm and 6pm. Transport from the hotel meets the train from Mandalay. However it can get full as most people head to this hotel or the guesthouse of the same name next door. If there's no room then it's only a 10-15 minute walk from the station and easy to find. Having been on the train for 12 hours it was good to stretch the legs.

Simply the Best
The friendliness of the staff, their attention to detail in providing services that travelers need, and the good value of the spotless rooms.
It is a rare and pleasant surprise when traveling that you come upon an establishment such as Mr. Charles Hotel and Guesthouse. Mr. Charles two daughters and son-in-law do a magnificent job in providing travelers with everything they need. Their attention to detail, their daily friendly smiles, and their going out of the way in order to make your stay there a pleasant one is seldom seen in other places. An example is the guides who meet there every morning to answer questions and make suggestions about all the treks available. It was by far the best place I stayed in during my month of traveling in Myanmar. And a very good value for the beautiful accommodations. I highly recommend it.
