Royal City is located near the downtown area and is fairly close to the palace grounds as well (but far from the entrance to the palace grounds). We walked to most places in the downtown area where there are some popular food options (Mann restaurant and the Chapati Food stall). Our room was large and clean (but a little run...

Be careful. Not sure, but I think they may have bed bugs here. I got about 50 bites all over my body with the classic "bites in a row" that bed bugs give (I only experienced this 1 time before and that time I actually woke up and saw them all over my body). IMO, better hotels for comparable prices...

had a twin bed room with my friend and overall experience was good although slightly pricey for what its worth. location might not be the best because its practically near to nothing, except for a nice european style restaurant/pub round the corner called bbb which is 5mins walk away (ask the staff for walking directions) rooms are generally clean and...

I stayed for 3 nights, payed 15$ for room 501 with airc,which has a bathroom outside in the hallway. It was a shared bathroom, but room 501 was the only one which didnt have a private bathroom. So i had the bathroom for myself. In terms of value for money this was the best for me in Myanmar. Breakfast was...

acceptable mid to lower priced accommodation seems difficult to find in Mandalay. My room had been flooded somehow from a previous occupant or a plumbing accident. I was arriving late on the boat which was stuck in the river on a sandbank and I suspect they thought I was a no show and only put a sheet of vinyl over...

We stayed at RCH for one night prior to an early boat ride to Bagan. The hotel itself is a good price, and though the rooms are a bit drab they are overall comfortable and clean. The major standouts for us were the (hard to find in Myanmar) free Wifi in the lobby and lovely sunrise/sunset views from the rooftop...

This is a simple and cosy hotel. Rooms are clean, aircon works well, basic bathroom: don't expect hot water for your shower. Breakfast could be better, but the view from the roof top while you are enjoying it is unbeatable. We stayed for three nights: the first two we had the double with bathroom for 35$ and the third a...

For sure, not a four star hotel. Rooms are simple, but large, comfortable, clean and have some charm. The hotel is well located, the staff is helpful, breakfast is ok. For the price we paid (35 USD), it's definitively a good deal.

This place is quirky and pretty much standard for Myanmar. Staff are very helpful and it has a great location. Prices are going up however that is pretty standard at the moment in Myanmar. Book early if you want to negotiate. Booking on the day when rooms are limited will put the price up. Rooms are clean and AC works...

The situation of this hotel is very good, close to the fort. The rooms are fine and have an attractive outlook (though there was a lot of noise in the neighbourhood). However it would be better if breakfast had not been such a trial! Having stayed in the hotel before I knew about the roof terrace, which is lovely, but...
