Nice, traditional basecamp for a visit to Mandalay
I enjoyed a very nice 3 night stay at this property while I was recently in Mandalay. It has a great deal of traditional character and the staff were very friendly and professional. It has a pool and gym which were nice when one needed to get out of the heat during midday, but it was walking distance to Mandalay Palace and Mandalay Hill which was really nice. Rooms are a bit small, but very comfortable. Great place to stay

Situacion y alojamiento muy recomendables
Muy correcto! En una calle muy tranquila a pesar de estar en pleno centro y muy cerca de todos los sitios de mayor interes. El recepcionista nos ayudo mucho a planificar nuestra estancia y gracias a el pudimos ver lo mas relevante en dos dias

8/10 Very good

Clean and comfortable place for two nights in Mandalay. Restaurant is good, like the flavored waters and the fresh passion fruit juice at breakfast. They try hard with the poolside drinks and tea hour. But because the pool made our skin itch we wouldn’t stay here again. We picked the place because it had a pool, very important to us. In Bagan before Mandalay the pool was great and after in Inle our pool was great. But this one was miserable to swim in because of the itchy water. We tried it twice and both times, itchy immediately. The level of service of the staff is top notch, whoever has trained them does an amazing job. They all are so on top of everything it was pretty amazing to see. They literally jump up to be attentive. May is especially outstanding. Our shower tub pooled water/stopped up, but luckily there was a second shower on our patio so we used that instead.

Excellent boutique hotel
Really nice hotel, beautifully furnished and great, helpful staff. Small, decent gym, good WiFi, and good breakfast. Also free coffee or tea offered in the afternoon. I would definitely stay again.

8/10 Very good

The hotel is a lovely property and the staff were particularly helpful. There were 3 things that I found particularly disappointing. Firstly, the food and beverage services at the Spice Garden (breakfast and dinner) were very ordinary. The coffee and tea were awful, the breakfast very average quality. One evening meal I had the food equally poor, especially considering the USD prices charged. Along the same lines, the spa prices were western prices in USD - a 1 hour treatment charging USD50 (did not use so cannot comment on the quality, but this seems ridiculous in Myanmar). The other disappointment was the one window to the room faced on to a grungy building which meant no natural light at all to our room. If they could improve the F&B quality then I would probably give this place a 5 rating.
