This place has a good situation in the center of Mandalay with a good value for money. The decoration is charming with a lot of wood carving in the public areas. Shared bathrooms are really clean and quite big. You can find a rooftop terrasse that is really nice. The staff is really kind and friendly.

The first night I settled for a fan room. It was incredibly hot and muggy that I couldn't sleep at all and opened my door to the hallway, which was way cooler. The AC room was better. It had its own bathroom as well. The room still a weird humidity to it, but what can you do. The breakfast was... More

The people who run this guesthouse are lovely. They are very friendly and always happy to help. Our room was quite small with a shared bathroom, however it had just been redecorated (1st floor) so there were none of the problems with it smelling damp, as in previous posts. The breakfast was good and there was a nice roof top... More

The cheaper rooms I wouldn't take, luckily we can afford a double ac room which is alright. Haven't checked any other place but as so many in Myanmar this guesthouse is overpriced. The breakfast is only bread, egg and cheap coffee. The ac is noisy and old but it does the trick! Staff is friendly.

I visited Mandalay 2 times and checked around 10 guest houses and hotels. This is one of the best places in Mandalay (with a ratio of price and quality). It has a good location and clean rooms. I agree with some reviews, that there is a slight smell and no windows (there is windows, but with wall view)...but do you... More

We stayed at royal Guest House as per Lonely Planet guide recommendation... After 1 night we moved to another place. Ok, staff was helpful and very nice, that's a good thing. But I don't understand why this place is so overloaded? We made a reservation few days before we arrived to Mandalay so we had a room. As you might... More

I would highly recommend this place! I stayed in 2 other places in Mandalay, but it was by far the best! It was cheaper and the staff more helpful and knowledgeable compared to one place, and it was cleaner (and had less creepy rooms) compared to the other place. The rooms are nice enough, clean enough, staff is friendly and... More

Cheaper than nearby ET guesthouse, central Mandalay location which has the downside of sparse local eating options. We stayed in a fan room w/ shared bathroom on the second floor for $17 a night. Room had window but the view was a brick wall about 20cm away, so got incredibly hot after occupying the room after about an hour. You... More

Wierd smell on first floor. Rooms are dark and warm (fan room). Staff is very service minded and pleasant but why are there like 7 people working in the reception at the same time? They are standing around, opening doors for people that doesn't need help with it. More staff than guests in the lobby most of the time. Power... More

The hotel was good. Clean sheets, clean bathroom. AC was working. Fan if you want it. WiFi on all floors. Breakfast was good. Close to the royal (military) square, but hard to find good restaurants in the neighborhood. I am not sure if this is just because there are not a lot of them in Mandalay.
