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.

Central position. Several motorbike drivers in front of the guest house ready to offer their services for full day tours to Amarapura, Inwa and Sagain. Great big rooms with mosquito nets, a/c, fan. Single room with ensuite bathroom with hot water is 17$. Breakfast is ok - nothing to really speak about but gives you some energy to start the... More
