We stayed one week at royal guest house because during the Waterfestival it was really hard to find an accommodation. We had two different rooms. The first one smelled very bad, there was mold on the walls and no window. After the Waterfestival we could move to another room (we asked the staff). Nice room with window, small balcony and...

Stayed here twice on my last trip to Myanmar. Prices have gone up since my last visit 5 years ago. But the rooms are a bit better, aircon is controlable, fan works. For central Mandalay a single (double for 1 person) at $15 with aircon/bathroom/breakfast is reasonable value now. The lady staff were really good to chat to and helpful.... More

We stayed in the 20$ rooms, don't stay on the bottom floor, cause the noise from plumbing is horrible, the rooms facing the street are nice. What makes this hotel really comfortable is the male night shift, the guys are friendly and polite, ladies seem bit tired of the job and tourists. One thing we didn't like is when asking... More

Nothing special, just another guest house. The building is a little strange at first, then ko after you get used to the stairs. Location is good, and there is a scooter renting shop just around the corner.

I've stayed in a few places during my trip in Myanmar and Royal Guesthouse is by far the best one. It is extremely clean - that's all I seen the staff do when there was free time. Speaking of the staff, they were so kind and helpful - excellent English! Nice hot water for the showers. I stayed in a... More

After arriving from Inle Lake at 3am with no place booked, our expectations were low. I was travelling with a friend, and we had met a very friendly couple on the way from Inle. As a group of four we strolled the streets at 3am looking for anywhere that our GPS and guide books highlighted. After finding a few places... More

Our stay at the Royal Guest House was fine. We got a double room with ac. Although the AC unit felt like it was going to break down soon, that luckily did not happen. The furniture looked a little bit old, and the bathroom definitively required renovation works. However, the (young) staff definitively improved our stay. They are really kind... More
