“Hotel de charme in the heart of Mandalay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2009

With a perfect and quiet location, a very individualised service and great smiles from all the staff, I had a wonderful time in Mandalay in this small hotel. The only down side if you are in a hurry is the restaurant's service which was particularly slow during my stay.

Probably the best option to stay in Mandalay, free internet with high speed is definitely a plus in Myanmar

Perfect place to relax after a day exploring Mandalay area.
Restaurant with serves very good food (especially Indian).
Great swiming pool area, beautiful teak building with awesome decoration, good internet conection.
Great staff who pays attention to every detail (they even print out a selection of the news of your country and give it to you in the morning!).
We really enjoyed our stay there.

we had a wonderful time staying at this hotel.Every member of staff gave 100% to our comfort and needs.We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay.Our room was canal view facing the restaurant ,this was a great idea and highly recommended! You see the staff walking to and fro and so you get lots of smiles and conversations.All the staff were great at helping us to learn a few basic burmese words and were very patient with their poor pupils! the food is wonderful and we spent many an hour enjoying the culinary skills of the chef served by the kindest waiters and waitresses who made our mealtimes such fun. full marks to all the reception staff such lovely ladies with beautiful smiles no matter how long the hours worked and a big hug and love to our young man on the entrance, he was such fun and so helpful.I dont mind admiting i cried when i left .Thanks to everyone and we will be back. ps the young ladies who cleaned our room were marvelous so thorough and conscientious and made our room a little oasis, miss your smiles and giggles! Please choose this wonderful cosy family run hotel if you enjoy personal service with high standards and good interaction with the people of Myanmar.

This boutique hotel is a perfect retreat in buzzing Mandalay. It is located in a residence area but some restaurants are in walking distance. Stuff is very helpful, friendly and always on your side. Our room (“Shan Suite”, which is a regular room) was prepared again every time we returned to the hotel. The place is kept very clean and tasteful.

Internet is free and all the information you need is provided by the stuff. Rooms to the garden side are with a balcony overlooking the garden and restaurant or the pool. Breakfast selection is great and wet towels are always been offered when you arrive.
