          best budget hotel in Mandalay”

          -very nice breakfast buffet , - helpful and friendly staff who made sure that I could have an early check-in as son as a room was available , - new hotel with comfortable,well equipped rooms

          Over the years I have been staying in most of the budget hotels in that area of Mandalay including the original Nylon Hotel. They have now opened up the so called "New Nylon Hotel" which is in my opinion at the moment the best option to stay for less than 20$. I arrived very early and they could not offer me a room immediately because they were fully booked and had to wait for a guest to check out. I was still able to check in at around 8.30am and before that they offered me a free breakfast buffet while I was waiting. Stayed only one night because I was in transit to Khamti on the Chindwinriver. Used the stable fast Wifi , had a good sleep in a comfortable bed, clean bathroom with good shower and bathtub. The friendly staff organised my transport to the airport in the early hours for a very competitive price. Will stay here again next time I come back to Mandalay.

          Great hotel ”

          Good value for money. Rooms are clean and roomy. Some rooms have bigger bathrooms than others but even the smaller ones are enough room. Have bathtub with hand shower and hot water. We rented a motorbike a block away (from Jerry's) and had no problem getting around. All the staff at the hotel were extremely happy to help with any needs you have. Thaw Zin can tell you anything you want to know about not only Mandalay but surrounding areas and the best way to get there. I highly recommend talking with him.

          best budget hotel in Mandalay”

          Have been here several times before. The New Nylon Hotel is in my opinion the best choice in this area . Very friendly and helpful staff who let you check in early if a room is available. Clean no-nonsense rooms with a comfortable bed , elevator , breakfast-buffet. Very good value for money.

          We had a comfortable stay in the (new) nylon hotel. Staff was very helpful and jumped to answer our queries. The room was clean, with airconditioning. Bathroom had a bath tube. Matrasses were a bit hard.

          Good place in Mandalay ”

          Had a great stay at Nylon. Mandalay is a quiet city in general so it was nice to stay in the city center and have some options for things to do. When traveling it is nice to access internet to make travel arrangements but the wifi was very weak where not many websites or apps could be opened.

          New Nylon is excellent”

          I stayed at the New Nylon. My single room was small but fine for one person. It was very clean and had a comfortable bed, flat screen TV, very hot shower, a/c and reasonable WiFi. The buffet breakfast was good with fried rice, fried noodles, fruit, toast, juice, tea and coffee all available. The staff were very friendly and helpful with onward travel arrangements.

          A very pleasant refuge from the noisy, dusty streets of Mandalay. Spotlessly clean with good facilities. The mattress was rather hard and, whilst breakfast was good, it would have been nice to have had ground coffee and pure juice; I would have been willing to pay a premium.

          Great room! Great staff! Good breakfast buffet”

          This is a full-on hotel for the price of a hostel. From the get-go, the staff was very friendly, welcoming and helpful with directions and informations (especially for showing us the cheap transport to get to Pyin Oo Lwin which is a few corners away). Welcome drinks! Room is clean, decent size, bathroom is new with 24h hot water. Refrigerator, tv, AC and everything you find in a good hotel room. Breakfast consists of typical Myanmar food but also toasts, eggs and fruits. Would definitely stay there again!

          Very nice staff, okay location”

          Staff,

          Pretty good stay here. Staff was super nice and the breakfast was solid. The hotel was in much better shape than I expected, although the bathrooms could use some help. The wifi wasn't great, but better than the other places that we've stayed in Myanmar. We booked a taxi for the day with them, which was a great day filled with incredible sites...although it's a little more expensive than we hoped for (and you can get a better deal if you plan ahead with another company) but you can bargain a bit with the manager to get the price more reasonable. The location is a ways from the tourist sites, but close to some restaurants and the clock tower where the pick up trucks leave from. Don't use or talk to the "taxi" drivers that offer you rides out front of the hotel...they aren't taxi drivers at all and there are plenty of legit hardworking taxi drivers around that you should give your money to over these scammers that will take you somewhere in their beat-up station wagon for double the price. Overall good stay, wish the location was closer to some of the temples and other sites, but the price made it worth it for us.

          The room was ready for us to check in early after midnight bus from Inle lake. So that we can take a nap before started our tour to Mingun area. We are allowed to take breakfast in the morning when we arrived and the next morning before we checked out. There are old and new Nylon hotel which are just located at the another corner of the street. The only bad thing is when we consulted one of the staff at old hotel where to eat at nearby restaurant, he seemed not that friendly, maybe due to poor English. We had been approached by another staff at new hotel for two times to introduce their service to book for the transport to Bagan. If you book directly from bus station, you can cut down the cost of service charge paying to the hotel. There is a local restaurant for shan food apposite famous nylon ice-cream. Cheap and nice food with funny waiter.

          Truly wonderful staff”

          This hotel may have the nicest staff I have ever encountered. I was traveled with a leg injury and agoda listed this hotel as having an elevator, even though there wasn't. I was assigned a room on a high floor. When I explained my situation, they bent over backwards to find me a room on the first floor. They even arranged for me to have breakfast at their sister hotel so I didn't have to walk up to the dining room. Every day they checked on me with genuine concern.

          The hotel located on the main road near tourist attractions , they provided enough facilities in a room. Internet does ok as mynmar standard. However breakfast lean over to mynmar oily taste which I do not like. Considering the price it is worth to pay.
