              Top notch service ”

              Stayed for 2 nights and welcomed with such great hospotality. I arrived from Inle Lake in the wee morning 3 am and the reception guy, Tayzar let me check in early. I was super delighted. The breakfast is really delicious and they have quite a variety, and make some changes daily. Also, they give u recommendations where to go and can help u book tuk tuk with prices same as grab. The balcony overlook the royal palace, its so close its a must go. However, take note u can only go in by east entrance of royal palace. They also let me take a shower as my late bus to Yangon at 930pm. Thats really nice of them. Absolutely one of the best hotel i stayed in.

              One of the better breakfasts we had in Myanmar. Value for money at this hotel is as good as is gets. Rooms are a bit old, but clean and big enough looking at the price. I'd definitely recommend it.

              I stayed here twice on this trip. Everything about this hotel was perfect plus a great breakfast. Staff were always welcoming, friendly and helpful. I was going to miss my 4 am train because I got up too late but one of the staff drove me in his car without expecting payment. Awesome.

              + Definitely the place to be in Mandalay. Staff makes the difference here. They have all been very kind and helpful with plans. Also a welcome drink with fruits and small towels was very kind. Rooms are ok, breakfast also good for this price range. All in all a perfect stay. - The only thing was that you have a musque right next to it and in our room we could hear the morning prayer which was ok but we could also hear children screaming Quran phrases very loud in the early evening times, every day...
