We stayed in a Chin Room at this boutique hotel at the beginning of November 2016. The room was very comfortable and was in a quiet location near to most sights in Mandalay and beyond. Would certainly recommend this hotel and helpful staff. It has a pool but we were too busy to use it. The restaurant for evening meals... More

The Hotel by the Red Canal, Mandalay is a small, family run hotel of high quality. The staff are warm and courteous and ever helpful. The hotel is richly designed in traditional teak wood finish with comfortable, custom-sized rooms; we stayed in a Chin Room which was well appointed, spotlessly clean and well maintained. The bath/shower access was not easy... More

Great and charming boutique hotel in the middle of the city. Clean, friendly, with plenty of atmosphere. Like everywhere in Burma, the service and staff are exceptional. Eager to please, with a ready smile, and a clear dedication to receiving guests graciously. Not a resort, even though it markets itself as such, so keep your expectations in line. The one... More

The hotel is an oasis in the center of town. Some sites are very close and easily walked to.They arranged a car for us for the distant ones and it was not much more than a taxi for the day.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel and it was fantastic. We had a twin room on the ground floor with a veranda overlooking the gardens.

We spent 2 nights in this Hotel; recommend a room in the upper floors. Staff is very friendly and effective, some of the Advertising Pictures give somehow a "wrong" Picture, it is a rather small pool and garden; but as there are not many People, it is not an issue. As there is nothing important in Walking distance, we used... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An oasis by the landmark Red Canal in local folklore just minutes from the famed Mandalay Palace and other attractions, The Hotel by the Red Canal is a convenient sanctuary, with its lush tropical greenery and calming water features, amidst the hustle and bustle of Myanmar's cultural city. “By choosing to stay with us, we will provide you with the extra measure of quality, comfort and personal convenience that you are looking for. Being small, we are able to provide personal attention to the needs, wants, and expectations of every guest.” The boutique-style hotel is a celebration of all things Myanmar, featuring teak furniture and fixtures & fittings made from rattan, mother-of-pearl and other local materials as well as Myanmar marble lining the bathroom walls. Each of the 4 types of guestrooms or customized suites, differentiated by individual style, bears the name of the major ethnic groups in multi-cultural Myanmar and is adorned with rich traditional paraphernalia and trappings reflecting their respective cultural heritage. All Chin and Shan suites feature a balcony overlooking the swimming pool and garden green. Ground floor Chin suites enjoy a “water moat”. The Rakhine suites are spacious and ideal for the business traveler. An outdoor shower with a slate wall of cascading water is the highlight of the honeymooner Kachin suites. ... more   less
