I stayed here the last two nights of 2016. Although the price is high, you get value for money. Especially the service is most outstanding. I lost my phone in a random taxi in Mandalay. Thet Swe Win from the hotel offered his help, worked for hours to find it and give it back to me the next day. Great...

We stayed for 5 nights before christmas and I agree, its a little further from the centre than we usually wouldve chosen. But nothing a $6 US taxi ride wouldnt fix.

Several reception desk staff do not speak or understand english well enough to work in an international hotel. Of course the hotel wanted an extra 3.1% when i put the bill on my Visa Card. No choice. 1. We asked politely, twice, to fix the...

We had stayed in this hotel along with a delegation. The hotel is huge and so are the rooms. The service too is prompt and the hotel staff always has a smile. The breakfast was ok (an area where they can improve).
