This was the nicest accomodation i've stayed in Burma (on a backpackers budget!) I shared a double room for 3 days with a friend for $10per night each (works out more expensive if you pay in kyat) Room was large clean and comfortable with lots of storage space. We had a look at a few rooms and picked the best... More

First impression : Nice reception, very polite and helpful staff The room : We have chosen the shared bathroom, ok it was neat and clean but the moist in our underground room was obvious ! Anyway, the staff didn't want we put our water bottle in their fridge. The breakfast : Pffff always this horrible sliced sponge bread and the... More

I stayed for two nights at this hostel and it was a nice experience. I asked in a few other places before Royal Guest House and all were worst, dirty and charged the same price. The staff was so friendly that without asking for it they prepared take away breakfast for us that had a bus to take at 5:30... More

very clever receptionists, (Myanmar) standard rooms no aircon (who needs it?) no bathroom at an average price, good position (on the 81st you can have an indian meal in the street food stalls). I had a room without window: good! no noise from the streets around!. a small terrace on the roof. only complaint: they use a room air freshener... More

We stayed in this hotel during our visit to Mandalay. For the price, it was worth it. Nothing special, very basic and spartan with poor linens. My concern was that upon entering our room for the very first time, the smell of cigarettes met us. I am not sure of the smoking policy of this guesthouse but if you are... More

Would not rate this place well. We booked a cheaper room in advance and because of this we had to wait longer than 5 other groups of guests to check in (even though we arrived first) which turned out to be over 2 hours later than everyone else. This was strange given nobody checked out during that time resulting in... More

The hotel is avarage both standard and price. You can't compare the price with other asian countries. The room is okay and the staff is friendly. There are a few local restaurants near the hotel which serve good food. Please don't drive with the taxi driver U Chit (Uschi). He is for sure too expensive and has a lot of... More

$22 for a double with private bathroom, a few mozzies and some grumbling plumbing, but fine if you don't mind hard beds and a lot of pastels. Cute tacky homely furnishings. Not a bad location for food options, and nice staff.
