                  What an experience”

                  I rarely get excited anymore on hotels but this place is one-of-its-kind. A worn building with a brand new elevator, functional room with fantastic mattress and a bathroom with bathtub to swing a cat in. It is in the Muslim/Indian quarter with all its life and the mullah next door calls for prayers at 5am and 5pm. Done in 30secs and did not disturb me. The hot water boilers are too small to feed hot water into all bathrooms so first morning it was lukewarm, this morning it is cold. But the staff is outstanding, the brekky changes daily and the tiny reception is loaded with personnel trying to read your needs from your lips. Well done and certainly worth the little money; thank you again!

                  Pros..accommodating staff with mr. aung san welcomed us. He arranged for our city tour and ancienty city tours as well. Buffet breakfast daily with different menus. It was just a little bit frustrating on the second day, only egg was the partner of the rice 😊. Hotel was clean same with beddings, linens, towels. Complete with bath necessities, complimentary water, coffee and tea. Our only problem was to find restos with foods we are used to for lunch aand dinner. All in all, hotel sahara is worth staying. All the four of us like hotel sahara. I just want to call the attention of mr. aung san, please don't recommend same bus we had. It was old and smelly. There is no problem if it is old as long as it is not smelly.

                  We were greated by very friendly staff who gave us a complimentary drink and watermelon then took our bags to our room. The room itself is a good size with lots of storage and mini-fridge. The bed was very comfortable and clean with excellent aircon. The ensuite is well maintained and clean with toiletries provided and a powerful shower. We stayed 3 days and the breakfast was different every time with a good range of rice, toast, eggs and drinks available. The hotel can arrange tours of the 4 ancient cities which was very convenient and a definite must-do for a day in Mandalay. Our tour guide was zin-zin and we would recommend asking for him if you can. Above all the staff made us feel very welcome and always went the extra step to help. This is by far the best hotel we stayed at in Myanmar and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

                  Great Stay”

                  I originally booked for double, but I got two single beds. That's the only problem I encountered. Other than that, breakfast was okay. The a/c worked fine. The shower needs a bit more pressure though. Front desk were very responsive to my transportation needs.

                  Nice Hotel, very friendly staff”

                  The rooms are clean, the staff is really friendly and helpful, the hotel is situated close to the railway station and the kings palace. There is a nice terrace in the 4th floor with an overview to the palace area. There it would be nice if they could put a small bar table and 3-4 chairs, that would be a great place. The breakfast buffet was good. We liked to stay there.

                  Our stay at Hotel Sahara was good. They were helpful and very friendly as we arrived in Mandalay. Supplied all the relavent information of Mandalay. The hot water was not present at all but that seemed similar with most Myanmar Hotels. I enjoyed my stay and would return even without the hot water.

                  The room is too small and a little bit noisy but the staff are very nice/friendly, the hotel hosted a new year party for all guests on Jan 1 to celebrate and communicate, that's really fantastic. The hotel is just opposite the Mandalay palace and provide taxi booking/money exchange with a very reasonable rate. It's very good and recommended.

                  Great hospitality especially when you are in trouble ”

                  When I stayed this hotel, I was sick. I talked to a member of staff I wanted to go to the near hospital. Then, he gave me a ride to the hospital. Furthermore, he translated between me and hospital staffs. He also did necessary procedure instead of me at the hospital. Of course, I cannot speak myanmar language, so this hospitality was very helpful to me. And other hotel staffs were care of my health. All hotel staffs are kind. Almost all hotels are good if you are in good state. But once you are in bad state, there is a difference between good hotel and really good hotel.

                  Stafs are great. Spacious room and clean. also they have welcome drink for you. the hotel is located near the grand palace. They were even so nice to give me two rooms to choose from when I arrive. First is little bit noisy brcause near the main road, so I choose the second one which is there is a mosque praying at 5am. But its okay. Overall, everything is fine.
