5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Road to Mandalay on its best!
I can honestly say, it was one of our best trips we ever had. The staff is absolutely awesome. Service was fast and you feel almost royal. They know every wish before even you know and the food was the best in Myanmar we've had (and we tried some major hotels and restaurants). This review seems exaggerated but the crazy thing is that every single word is true.
