Mr Charles Guest House and Hotel is a warm welcome on your trekking adventure. This family-managed business offers great hospitality, decent facilities and a really good breakfast.
You’re likely to be here to join your guided trek but during your stay you can also visit the neighbouring villages, take a boat cruise down the Dotthawaddy River, or cycle through the valleys at your leisure. Don’t miss the unforgettable sunset from on high at Nine-Buddha Hill. The vibe at Mr. Charles Guest House and Hotel is vibrant and personable, with trekkers relaxing and chatting in the common room.
In the hotel, the rooms are basic, clean and functional: choose from a standard, superior, deluxe, or junior suite room. All are air conditioned with comfortable beds, rain showers and free Wi-Fi. The larger room types have TVs, safe deposit boxes and fridges.
This is a simple, hostel-like place and not for everyone but if your focus is on trekking then it’s a decent and comfortable base.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!
My favourite [guide] was Aung in Mandalay. We only had him for one day, but he was determined to show us as much of Mandalay as possible in the time allotted, was obviously very proud of his city and country and was a pleasure to be with. He even took us to meet his uncle who was the Abbott of one of the many monasteries.
