              Incredible Hotel”

              breakfast, rooms, location

              Most of the hotels in Myanmar are quite expensive when compared with neighboring countries, and most of the time visitors would feel that they deserve more from the amount they paid. Hotel Sahara is an exception! Despite their budget room rates, they offer great service and most importantly the rooms are quite spacious with flat screen tv, cabinet, small fridge, and nice and clean bathroom. It is located at the corner of a shopping district and sits right in front of Mandalay moat which is a famous local attraction. If you are flying with AirAsia, the free shuttle service is just on the next street, less than 3-minute walk from the hotel. The breakfast is awesome, the staff are awesome. In the evening, a local Burmese noodle shop opens right in front of the hotel, and they have really delicious food at affordable prices. Surely it was my best hotel experience in Myanmar.

              Five Day Mandalay”

              We enjoyed staying at the Sahara for five days. Nothing is close in Mandalay so the Sahara was a good compromise for us. We could walk out for 1-2 hour sightseeing, stop at a typical restaurant at noon, and hire a tuktuk/taxi back to the hotel. The hill required a driver to see all the temples. Room was large, comfortable, pretty good wifi, breakfast had a few different dishes every day but mostly Asian, forget about the TV. Staff had good suggestions for restaurants and things to do. Only down side is that the sidewalks down the street from the hotel are dug up for construction.

              Our best stay in Myanmar!”

              our stay at Sahara Hotel was the best in all of Myanmar. Staff is super friendly and polite. they let us have breakfast when we arrived early and prepared breakfast to take with us on our last they when we left early for the train. Supplies given and renewed daily including bottle of water and toiletries. free bike is a plus to explore mandalay. when we had an issue with the wifi, we told them and it was resolved in minutes. hot water not always available since they use solar tanks or so but still good enough to shower. they have lockers to store your personal belongings too. If you are thinking twice to book this accommodation, just go for it :D

              Our stay at Hotel Sahara was good. They were helpful and very friendly as we arrived in Mandalay. Supplied all the relavent information of Mandalay. The hot water was not present at all but that seemed similar with most Myanmar Hotels. I enjoyed my stay and would return even without the hot water.

              Staff, comfort, ran

              Hotel Sahara was amazing. Staff was so helpful in booking me a bus, helping me change that ticket when I booked it wrong, booking my next hotel by calling them. Giving me a map, setting up an extremely reasonable taxi to take me all around Mandalay. Above and beyond in every way. We stayed at this hotel a second night instead of leaving because it was so great. TV plays great English movies. I didn't want to leave. Amazing.

              Really enjoyed the room, excellent AC and nice bed, felt very secure. Location was very good. Stayed during Thingyan, so many things were closed. Still enjoyed Mandalay. Would highly recommend a day trip to Mingun! Hotel Sahara exceeded expectations! Staff were very warm and accommodating but sometimes we suspected they overcharged for transportation?

              Will Return”

              Central Location, Helpful Staff, Quiet Room

              The hotel is located right at the southwest corner of the palace grounds. Mandalay is such a sprawling city, it's really hard to know if this is a good location or not. Did enjoy twilight strolls along the moat, for what that's worth. There are many good food options, both restaurants and street foods within a 10 minute walking radius. Although the adjacent streets are very busy, I heard no traffic noise while in my room. I booked a superior room with a window. The view was looking south over the city. The room and bathroom were cramped, but clean and functional. Wood floors and ceiling trim were beautiful. Lighting was adequate for reading in bed. TV was small and channel selection limited, but that was not a big concern to me. Breakfast was ok, not a huge selection but certainly satisfying. Scrambled eggs, toast and jam, fried rice and noodles, papaya, juice, and real coffee. Had to check out early to catch a plane, so staff prepared a breakfast box for me to take along. Boiled eggs, bread, and fruit. Very thoughtful service. There is also an onsite generator, ensuring 24 hour power despite Mandalay's frequent evening blackouts. All front desk staff I conversed with spoke very good English, with no misunderstandings. If ever in Mandalay again, I would return to Hotel Sahara.

              Lovely stay”

              We found that Mandalay isn't a very tourist friendly city - all sites very spread out, getting around isn't as easy as other places unless you hire a motorbike/driver, etc. but did really enjoy staying at Hotel Sahara. Staff were excellent - very helpful when we asked questions, and needed to book a bus. Loved the breakfast, very tasty and good mix of food types. We had no problems with wifi either. only critique would be the strong smell when we walked in from toilet fresher thing sitting in the bathroom (though put it in a plastic bag for duration of stay and had no problem after that). Overall, would sure stay there again.

              We were greated by very friendly staff who gave us a complimentary drink and watermelon then took our bags to our room. The room itself is a good size with lots of storage and mini-fridge. The bed was very comfortable and clean with excellent aircon. The ensuite is well maintained and clean with toiletries provided and a powerful shower. We stayed 3 days and the breakfast was different every time with a good range of rice, toast, eggs and drinks available. The hotel can arrange tours of the 4 ancient cities which was very convenient and a definite must-do for a day in Mandalay. Our tour guide was zin-zin and we would recommend asking for him if you can. Above all the staff made us feel very welcome and always went the extra step to help. This is by far the best hotel we stayed at in Myanmar and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

              We had a good-sized room on the top floor looking out over the cityscape. There is a small outdoor terrace next to the lift that gives good views across the moat to the Royal Palace. Buffet breakfast was good, and the staff were all extremely attentive and friendly. There are a few reasonable restaurants nearby. The reception staff were very good at arranging transport - for example, they booked their local driver to take us up Mandalay Hill one day so we could walk back down at our own pace, and the next day he took us on a half-day trip to just the places we wanted to see on the south side of Mandalay.

              Pros..accommodating staff with mr. aung san welcomed us. He arranged for our city tour and ancienty city tours as well. Buffet breakfast daily with different menus. It was just a little bit frustrating on the second day, only egg was the partner of the rice 😊. Hotel was clean same with beddings, linens, towels. Complete with bath necessities, complimentary water, coffee and tea. Our only problem was to find restos with foods we are used to for lunch aand dinner. All in all, hotel sahara is worth staying. All the four of us like hotel sahara. I just want to call the attention of mr. aung san, please don't recommend same bus we had. It was old and smelly. There is no problem if it is old as long as it is not smelly.

              Staff, location, value

              Overall, I was happy with my stay at the Hotel Sahara and would stay there again. The hotel is centrally located with the moat and many good restaurants and shops nearby. The room was clean overall, but there were a lot of spots that could have used more cleaning - for example, a sheet of styrofoam under the mini-fridge was very dingy and dusty, and some walls needed cleaning or repainting. The breakfast buffet okay, but not great compared to what I've had elsewhere. Staff service was excellent. They arranged a taxi to the airport for me at a reasonable rate. The driver was punctual and drove well.

              Good value at US$16 with a great breakfast included. Internet was good when working. On the Positive side: Staff super efficient and will arrange everything. Most Hotels are way over priced, in this country, but I thought this place was reasonable. Money Changer nearby. Palace wall near but entrance a long way. The Positives outweigh the negatives here, by the way. On the Negative side: The local Mosque is right next door but the wake-up call is quite short. Beds are a bit 'firm". Shower hot water control is one big pain! Not many eating places around the hotel (or in Mandalay generally). If you haven't eaten by 8 pm you're in danger of starving.

              We felt the Sahara was hands down, one of the best budget hotels that we stayed at in Burma. It's very centrally located near the southern corner of the palace and very conveniently located if you need to take the AirAsia shuttle which is located in the next street over. The breakfast was very good and varied each day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Even though we arrived very early in morning (5AM), before the listed check in time, they gave us a room immediately. All-in-all, a wonderful place to stay.

Also a welcome drink with fruits and small towels was very kind. Rooms are ok, breakfast also good for this price range. All in all a perfect stay. - The only thing was that you have a musque right next to it and in our room we could hear the morning prayer which was ok but we could also hear children screaming Quran phrases very loud in the early evening times, every day...
