The cheery Hotel Yadanarbon building is undoubtedly a warm welcome when you arrive in Mandalay, the right choice for travellers who appreciate that it is within walking distance from all the major city sights. It’s bright, clean and decorated in a traditional Mandalay style.
The Hotel Yadanarbon is located centrally, so Mandalay’s shops, night bazaars, palaces, pagodas and monasteries are just a short walk or drive away. In the hotel itself, you can enjoy the atmosphere in the café, or grab a sundowner and head to the rooftop restaurant to see the sunset.
Choose from one of 56 standard, superior or deluxe rooms or opt for one of the two suite rooms for extra space. The rooms are bright and furnished in a cheery traditional way, and you can expect colourful flowers or other pleasant touches. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are large and clean.
This is a great and convenient choice for a while in Mandalay. It’s not a sleek five-star luxury, and the street noise might affect you if you’re sensitive to it, but it’s a functional hotel and staying there is an enjoyable experience.
