                Service, Beds, Information

                We stayed at the Golden City Light Hotel for 2 nights during the low season / rainy season (late July). Front desk staff was professional and got us checked in quick. Room was well kept with all advertised amenities. Beds were very nice, not to firm. A/C took 5 mins to warm up but worked well otherwise. The hair dryer was especially nice. Breakfast was decent, local foods along with a standard of toast and jam. Watch out for overly oily eggs. Ketchup was not avaiable. For tours and day trips, the front desk offered us a handful of options. We ended up going on a half day trip with a local driver Mr. Naing who spoke pretty good english and could explain some of the tour locations. The price negotiated at the front desk was also decent. Overall probably the best stay in our entire Mynmmar trip at this price class. Note: The hotels exchange rate isn't very good, request prices in kyat to save alittle cash.

                Golden City Light is the quintessential downtown hotel. The staff were very helpful and though the issue with which dollar notes are okay is frustrating, its not their fault. The helpful girl booked me onto a 10 hour boat cruise to Bagan and organized a hotel autorickshaw for me at 6am (I normally do GRAB everywhere in SE Asia). Room cleaning was perfect. They also did a wake-up call when I needed it. I did all my meals outside, but the fridge was stocked. The bed was springy on one side but okay if you slept in the centre. a little hard to plug phone into socket and lie down at the same time. Its a quiet space at night so a good sleep is guaranteed. Well placed to get to some great vegetarian restaurants like Diamond Ring, Maria Min and Nature. Easy to find for Grab drivers. Good rate forex place nearby. All in all, solidly competent.

                Staff, food, location

                The breakfast here was the best breakfast I have had during my whole stay in myanmar, they had a huge variety of local foods and fruit. Every time we left or came back to the hotel we were greeted with huge smiles. We were feeling ill one day and wanted to spend the day in bed watching films, our tv didn't have any English channels so we went downstairs and asked if they could put an English Channel on for us. They did this with a smile and the hotel staff then had to spend the day watching English tv because whatever they were watching is what we got to watch. On our last day we had to set off to the airport before breakfast started but they made us a little takeaway breakfast with the same breakfast we had had every morning (clearly they had been watching) it was very thoughtful and we appreciated their service very much. I will definitely return if I go back to Mandalay.

                Cleanliness, commodities, good service.

                Very clean room with all modern commodities (fridge, AC, TV, etc.) Helpful and smiliy staff (they sorted out our journey to Bagan very efficiently). Breakfast OK (Chinese option far better than the sweet toast bread and not so good jam and butter). Internet was weak but in Myanmar we only got better in Yangon. Location was a bit far out from the centre (although with a big modern supermarket nearby, the only supermarket that we spotted in Mandalay). Anyway, in Mandalay to visit the must see places you do need to arrange a guide with car or motorbike as the distances between highlights are too big for walking or even cycling - in view of this, the distance from any major sights or places of interest is not a big inconvenience.

                The breakfast was good because there were a lot of choices. The staffs were really helpful and friendly. The Internet was fast compare to other places in Mandalay.

                When we first entered the hotel, the bell boy at the door offered us cold towers and orange juice, which was really nice in such a hot summer day. The Wi-Fi is insanely fast. The staffs there were really helpful and they can offer map of Mandalay. The breakfast is amazing. There were Myanmar food and western food. There was a market very close to the hotel so it was easy to get fresh fruits. However, the taxi called by the hotel was expensive. I will recommend this hotel to my friends.

                Stayed in many hotels in downtown before but this is one of best, in terms of value & comfort. Almost all staff are English speaking, very friendly & warmly, even help me mend my torn jeans. Housekeeping team was awesome, one of best in Myanmar! Lots of street food & restaurant food around, with Mandalay biggest mall just behind. By Myanmar standard, one of best professionally run hotels in town. Will be back for future stays!

                Generally a good experience. We arrived really early in the morning and the staff got us checked into our room as soon as they could. We visited a few friends who live in Mandalay who were surprised at how nice and clean the hotel was, which leads us to believe we picked a good place. Room was clean and comfortable and everything worked. Breakfast (included) is an all-you-can-eat buffet and includes some hot Chinese dishes, fruit, toast, and various drinks.

                It was quite good staying in this hotel. The hotel is new so the room and furniture are new and clean, and I was upgraded to a delux room though I booked a standard one, and so I had a larger room. The hotel is not very far from the palace and is on a busy road, so you can easily get a taxi or find some food. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. You can book bus tickets, air tickets or hire a taxi for sightseeing at the counter with reasonable price.

                We are regulars. The hotel always serves welcome drink. To us it's a very considerate guesture considering the weather is real hot. It refreshes us while the hotel processes our passports. The staff are well trained and courteous compared to a couple of others I have stayed. There are many hotels nearby and competition is stiff. This subtle difference makes a lot of difference whether the guests want to come back the next time. At night you can loiter longer as it is in the city central with Diamond Plaza/Skymall, the shopping malls a stone throw away and and restaurants opposite and nearby. Other hotels further away from the central are located in areas where roads are not brightly lit as they use white lights. Motor bikes ply the roads and can be a danger. Keep up your good work!

                The manager was very nice

                The hotel was fine and the lobby staff were considerate. The area doesn't seem to have a great number of things to do and streets are difficult to get around. The only real complaint would be about breakfast. We went up, admittedly not super early, and there was almost nothing left to eat. It was all do it yourself serving, which was not what we had encountered in the rest of our hotels in Myanmar. There were two "serving" boys there. But they never helped or made sure that food was refilled when it ran out. When we were getting ready to leave the hotel for the airport, a manager asked how our breakfast was. We let him know that there wasn't much left for us, and he was very apologetic and offered to get us something else. Very kind of him, but we didn't have time left. Overall, it's not a bad stay, but I would probably look around for other hotels if I stayed in Mandalay again.

                A pleasant stay. All 6 members in our team are happy with the price, location and breakfast (food changes everyday). A pity 2 of our members are located on the 2nd floor with window facing a wall. The air-con takes about 5 mins to start and power failure is frequent in this country. Other than that everyone is happy. Welcome drinks are given to everyone arriving. We are so glad because April is the hottest time of the year (April - June is the hottest period with temperature hitting 38 - 40 deg C). Friendly staff, always smiling and helpful. The shopping mall is a left turn, the wet market and the grocery stalls are in front of us. Very convenient for us to buy snacks and shop for local products to bring home. A local friend who have connections to 2-star hotels was surprised we could get such low price. Tks to Agoda.

                Can't emphasize enough how helpful and kind the staff were. Very fun people who gave me recommendations, placed reservations, and kept offering me water/juice all the time. Free bikes here are pretty good, but be aware there are only four or so that work. AC in room is very good, but slow to activate. If you want to keep the AC on, stick any card in the slot to leave power on when you leave. Breakfast was quite good, good Asian foods plus toast/fruit. The hotel is nearby Aye Mit Tar (amazing) and the night market is a block away. You can get free juice or water downatairs, and they have a computer you can use. Wifi isn't amazing but it is more than enough for text, email or Facebook. Great place, I'd stay here over a lot of other more expensive locations again.

                We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. Rooms were very clean, a lot of space to keep luggage. Good hot water pressure, spacious bathroom. Liked: asian-styled breakfasts (in the same restaurant you can dine in the evening as there are not so many clean places nearby to eat), good house keeping service. Disliked: reception could be more helpful and attentive.If not reception, this hotel would get higher score.

Location is quite good because it is close to downtown and china town market which is crowded. Rooms are also quite clean. Though we booked two triple-superior rooms with three single beds, rooms are not available when we check in. They tried to give us different rooms that we didn't book. Rooms should be ready before we check in. Thanks

                Excellent hotel, highly recommended”

                staff extremely friendly and welcoming, free use of bicycle, excellent central location

                I cannot praise the staff of this hotel highly enough and shall definitely be staying here again when I come next. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms are professionally laid out with an excellent understanding of what it means to be travelling. I score it 10 out of 10. As a vegan I would have liked to have seen one option at every breakfast but this is a very minor issue.

                How does this place have such a high ratin?”

                Staff really tried to help.

                No in room safe in room at check in. Changed to room with malfunctioning safe. Replaced with safe that also malfunctioned. Process took two hours with no satisfactory result. Message to hotel: seriously need to upgrade room safes; invest in ones that will accommodate laptops. Mosquitoes in room. Need to spray in the evenings. Mini-bar, but no beer! (However Ocean City only five minute walk.) Only one non-Burmese or non-Chinese language tv channel. Need CNN or BBC or DW or Al Jazeera or NHK. One will do. Good location, passable breakfast, and really sincere staff. For the price, at least in off-season, would try again.

                Breakfast,Nice room,Helpful staff

                Had 2 nights here and was very happy with the service. Lovely breakfast,lso had dinner 1 night in restaurant - quite nice and very reasonably priced. The staff were very helpful and we booked a car from the hotel to take us to the airport when we left - very good service,good price and we arrived in plenty of time for our flight. Overall I think this hotel is underrated.
