I had to stay one night in Mandalay before I moved on to Bagan since I really did not want to travel at night solo. I booked Hotel Royal Yadanarbon Hotel because it was inexpensive for $20 a night and it was near the city. Also, it had fantastic reviews and I can see why. I actually wish I hadn’t booked another hotel on my return since this was way cheaper and it was really good value. I asked my friend who lived there about this and she didn’t really know where it was so I wasn’t sure if I should stay here but I took the risk anyway and booked it.
The bathroom was okay. It was clean.
The breakfast is limited but it’s free since it comes with the room price. They mostly had rice, some kind of egg roll and vegetalbes, some fruit, juice and bread. They can also cook some eggs for you however you like them. :)
I would definitely recommend this to anyone and will stay here again in a heartbeat if I was ever back in Mandalay. It’s really great value, can’t stress that enough. The staff were newbies but they were really polite and nice. They can also help booking tickets for buses should you ever need that. They also have an ATM machine just outside the hotel.
