If you’re like me who prefers to have most things in order with travel arrangements, this might be for you. I’m the kind of traveler who prefers to have a hotel/hostel already reserved for my destination. So I always book one before I go. Of course this has its advantage and disadvantages. I like having a place to find and lay my weary head with from a long travel than shop around at my destination even if it’s low season. So, these were the hotels that in my research and experience are good options on where to stay in Mandalay. I ordered them from by price.

My friend also recommended this place since she knew a lot of their guests from their school would stay here. She hasn’t personally stayed here but she knew people who did. It also has a really good Tripadvisor rating.

I loved this hotel. I think it’s really grate value. Remember the disadvantage I was talking about? This was it. I couldn’t come back to this hotel even if I really liked it because I’ve already booked my stay at another hotel and I would be charged a significant amount if I canceled. If I was still allowed to cancel, I would have stayed here in a heart beat. It’s not in the center of town but it’s still at a manageable distance.

If you ask people about Sedona, they would know where it is. It is right in the center of town, in front of the Royal Palace. It has the best location. I actually went here and stayed at the lounge to wait for a friend. I parked my bike outside. The wifi connection was free and incredible, made me wish I could have stayed there. Haha. They have a couple of restaurants we checked out. We were looking for a cake but they didn’t have it at the time.

This is an institution in Mandalay. If you want to go on a really nice date or celebrate something really special, you go to Mandalay Hill Resort Hotel. It’s also the farthest on this list from the city but some people like that.
