Hotel by the Red Canal

Room Type: 4 types of Suites

Descripton: As other reviews have said this place is indeed an oasis in Mandalay. The rooms are comfortable and fairly basic but compared to the Royal Orchid around the corner they are luxury!

We loved this hotel because of the staff and great vibe. The rooms are small however – in fact the smallest of any hotel we stayed at in Myanmar and our rooms had showers only and no bath. The hotel has a brilliant location for an evening stroll along the river or for getting to the Mandalay Palace a short walk away. Breakfast and lunch in the hotel restaurant were great. The hotel serves free snacks and tea during the day and in the evening we got free cocktails from 6.30 to 7.30pm and this was a brilliant idea as we were introduced to some very interesting drinks and had the opportunity to meet other people.
