Unexpected weather disrupted our stay”
We arrived around 7pm in the evening and were welcomed by friendly and attentive staffs. The check in was swift and easy. I made a special request for room decoration to celebrate my partner’s birthday, they done it accordingly, just that it was less than what I was expecting. They provided complimentary birthday cake which is a good thing. While everything went on smoothly, our stay was disrupted by poor weather that hits Mandalay suddenly. Strong winds and heavy downpour caused extensive black out throughout the city including Bagan King Hotel. We got stuck in the hotel room as the weather was too bad for us to go anywhere. Luckily, Bagan King Hotel has its own generator that can support everything including air conditioner. Perhaps even the hotel themselves didn’t expect such a bad weather as they said this is unusual when I asked them, they run out of fuel after some 40 minutes. At least the phone is still working and they quickly call us to inform that they will refuel in one hour time. In fact, they refuel in less than 30 minutes and everything is up and running again. Breakfast provided is above expectation, selection maybe limited but most of the food are good. As we check out after having breakfast, we didn’t really check out much on their facilities.
Bagan King is a newer boutique hotel in downtown Mandalay. The location is very central for many of the tourist sights and restaurants that one would want to visit in Mandalay. The breakfast was good, although not the best that we had while in Burma. We liked that the hotel provided free bikes for guests to tool around town. I was surprised that there wasn't a pool there, given how hot and stuffy Mandalay can be. The staff were nice and we were provided wet towels and a welcome drink upon arrival. Everything was perfectly nice and serviceable, but nothing stood out as spectacular. Nonetheless, a nice, reasonably priced hotel in the center of the city.
Brilliant Staff, Lovely Hotel”
Staff took extra effort to ensure we have enjoyed our 3-day stay with them. It was very homely, as you will meet the same staff everyday. They are very attentive and hospitable. At breakfast, manager will check if the stay or food is alright. Without making known that my husband's birthday, they prepared a cake, sang birthday song as they delivered it to our room as a surprise. We were situated on the 5th flr, a flr below the restaurant, noise insulation may not be that good but it did not bother us much. Room is very clean and tastefully decorated. Bed was just the way I like it. I was suffering insomnia before arriving Mandalay, and my 3 nights with Bagan King, I slept like a baby. In general, the hotel caters to older generation. Throughout the stay, we seen only 1 couple whom are around 30s. There, we received services, quality and value.
in the two days prior to staying at Bagan King I stayed at another local hotel and then went out on foot to survey 14 other hotels in one evening. I walked around Mandalay looking for something nice. Bagan King and Sedona were the only decent hotels I found. Sedona costs more than twice as much, whilst the staff are half as helpful and courteous. I don't think you can beat Bagan King for under US$150 a night in Mandalay so make it your first choice and save yourself the trouble.
Excellent Stay in Mandalay.”
I stayed 4 nights and found the Hotel to be a really good choice. Location wise it it not too far from the attractions of the Royal Palace, Mandalay Hill and the nearby Pagodas. The surrounding area has a few Restaurants, Convenience stores and Banks with ATM's. The Mingalar Market is also nearby. The Hotel has a Boutique intimate feel with very pleasant Bagan inspired decor. The rooms are comfortable and large with King size beds. on the downside I found that the shower not being enclosed means you have wet floor in the bathroom. The Rooftop Bar Restaurant is great with good breakfast options and the dinner meals I had there were also very good. Service was attentive and welcoming and a Mini Bus tour I booked with the Hotel Staff to Sagaing, Inwa and Amarapura was really excellent and very good value.
Best hotel in Mandaly”
Very nice staying, the hotel is well cared, the staff are very friendly and remembered our celebration date. Good breakfast in very nice terrace restaurant with good views of the city; also good dinner time - entertainment of puppets, music.. The room is clean, beds confortable and detailed decoration give tranquility in the room and also in the reception. WIFI worked well ! The ranking in the internet is as No3 in Mandalay, and as I stayed in the number 1, I can assure that Bagan King would be No 1.
Our First time in Mandalay enhanced by Bagan King Hotel”
This was the cutest boutique hotel I have visited in a very long time. The exterior "does" resembles a Bagan Ancient brick temple. The moment you walk in the staff are super friendly and eager serve you. The room we stayed in was small, but was over-looked by it's attention to carved woodwork designs, stain glass bathroom doors, and overall Burmese welcoming style. The king bed and mattress were firm and comfortable; we sleep well each night. The roof deck restaurant & bar was our go-to each day after long tours of Mandalay. From the roof you have 360 degree views of city, and the bartenders make a Great Lechi-Martini. Dinner was delicious and includes live Burmese music (a harpist) and then a puppet show. I recommend the all-in-one 5 course prawn supper special - $18US. I would stay here again in a heart beat!
Excellent Service, Great Location”
I am confident that Bagan King Hotel will deserve the many excellent reviews. It’s the great location. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Food was great. Service was exceptional. We will definitely go back and recommend this hotel to everyone who plans to visit Mandalay.
Friendly staff, comfortable room”
It's always difficult evaluating a hotel and making comparisons when you're talking about a very different country, culture and expectations. Bagan King might not be an 8.9 hotel in Paris or Rome, but in Mandalay it's probably one of the best options available. It isn't small, it isn't a boutique hotel, but it has the flavor of one - personal, attentative. It's closer to Mandalay Hill and the Palace than the downtown area, which for me is an advantage - it's a bit more peaceful. It is on a main road with a lot of honking horns, but honking horns are an inescapable aspect of Myanmar anyway and didn't really bother me. In particular I want to mention Phyu Phyu Thew, the weekday front desk supervisor, who was very helpful in every way (and who has a very good level of English).
Wonderful experience in Mandalay with outstanding customer service!”
We arrived at the Bagan King Hotel at about 4am, after taking the night bus from Inle Lake (Nyaung Shwe) and we were exhausted after a bumpy ride. The night desk clerk got us registered, informing us that the restaurant in the hotel would be open at 6 am and our room would be available at around 10 am. At about 8 am, an employee from the daytime staff approached our table in the restaurant and informed us that our room was ready for us. He took care all of all of the remaining check-in details right at our breakfast table and left the key with us, saying that our bags were already waiting for us in the room. The hotel is filled with beautiful Burmese artwork and decor. Our room was pleasantly furnished and the bed was comfortable. But the superb customer service from the entire staff was cherry on top of our stay. Thank you, Bagan King!
Beautiful hotel with great staff!”
We stayed at the Bagan King for three nights and had a great experience. The hotel was easy to get to the palace and Mandalay Hill, and the staff was helpful in explaining the various tours around the city they had available as well. One night we got back late from our day around the city and they were kind enough to keep the kitchen open for us to make dinner since most of the local restaurants were already closed! Room was spacious and clean!
Nice hotel and wonderful staff”
We are 3 ladies from Thailand. Even we were staying only 1 night, we really enjoyed the stay in Bagan King Hotel. The room is big enough for 3 people, the design and decoration is so unique. The breakfast view is breathtaking while the food satisfied us well. The hotel staffs are very friendly. We also took the transportation service starting from the first day in Mandalay all the way to Bagan. It was in totally 5 wonderful days in Myanmar. The driver, Su Luck Maung made all of his effort to take us everywhere we needed to see with his friendly and funny manner. We really enjoyed the ride with him and felt so lucky to have him. We totally recommended this hotel and transportation service.
Home to home”
After the Hell of the Paradise Inle resort we thought we’d arrived in Heaven when we came to the Bagan King. Our room had everything it should and, best of all, huge mugs instead of the thimble-sized ones we had in other places. We ate good dinners in the roof-top restaurant. Breakfast was the usual buffet-style but this one had crispy bacon too. We didn’t particularly like the overhead rain shower and the wet-room style bathroom as we are not fans of wet rooms. The staff were charming and helpful and responded to every request immediately. We would happily stay there again and would recommend any of our friends visiting Mandalay to do so too.
Very Attentive and Five Stars from me”
I could not be more complementary of the Bagan King hotel. The staff was exceptionally helpful and professional. The hotel was very well appointed and clean. The rooms exceptionally comfortable. Just a 15 minute walk to the train station, but in a good part of the city. The staff was very helpful in arranging boat tickets to Bagan, making the whole process seamless. In particular the wait staff, particularly the young gentleman who served me at happy hour, was articulate, sweet, polite, and made my stay even nicer. The Hotel is fortunate to have him in their employ. The front desk staff was also, exceptional. To a person they did a great job. When I return in the future I shall stay no where else!

Very good service”
We had a very pleasant 3 nights stay in Bagan King Hotel, Mandalay. Very friendly General Manager, F and B manager, front desk receptionists and bell boys.Special thanks to Phyu Phyu Thwe, Kay Zin Hein and Lin Lin Ko who were very helpful through out our stay.
Excellent staff and well appointed hotel”
Mandalay at times is extremely hot, dusty and can be strewn with litter. The Bagan King is, by contrast; cool, clean and orderly- a welcome relief from this chaotic city. The girls at the desk speak reasonable English and were super efficient in organising taxis, transfers and money matters for us. We have stayed here twice and would not hesitate to do so again.
A great place to stay in Mandalay”
We started our trip in Myanmar in Mandalay and this hotel was our first experience. the stuff was great and very helpful, we asked for a double bed and when we got to the room we found 2 twin beds' after notification to the reception, our room was immediately changed to our stisfection. Breakfast and dinner are served in a beautiful terace and we enjoied the food there. The hotel is located in the center and very close to a lot of good restaurants. We would highly recommend this hotel for stay in Mandalay/

Home away from home”
Every staff member at Bagan King was kind and helpful, from the moment we called to reserve a taxi from the airport to when we left, and they arranged our bus trip to Bagan, and the chef in the kitchen cut up and beautifully packaged our store bought mango so we could take it on the ride. The hotel was very well located and the room was very artfully decorated and comfortable. Breakfast on the top floor restaurant was a pleasure each morning. But really, the absolute best part of the stay were the wonderful hotel staff.
Had a perfect stay. Enjoyed the ancient look of this hotel and the many antique fixtures and furnitures in the hotel. Was driven by a young staff by the name of Myo. He chauffered us for 2.5 days. Aiport pick up; Toured around mandalay for 1 day and drove us to Bagan on the next. Offered excellent hospitality. Food offered at the hotel restaurant was yummy too. Highly recommended.
Great stay, I really enjoyed this hotel”
We landed into Myanmar unsure of what to expect and were greeted by a driver from the hotel who took us. The staff was extremely friendly and the room was amazing. One of nicest rooms I stayed in Myanmar, very clean. There is a great restaurant on top with nice views and they have a puppet show and other nice entertainment that makes it great to have dinner or a drink. Location seemed good. We walked outside and met a taxi driver who was Awesome and took us around the entire day for K40,000 including U-Bein bridge. Next day we took the boat to Bagan. I highly recommend bagan king.
