Fodor's Expert Review Emerald Land Inn

9 14th St., near 87th St., Mandalay, Myanmar

Though it looks a bit tired, this budget hotel (by Myanmar standards) with its neatly tended gardens and swimming pool offers respite from downtown Mandalay. Bungalow-style rooms are decorated with old-fashioned but good quality, sturdy wooden furniture; bathrooms are functional, with hot water, but leave something to be desired. Short power outages are the norm not just here but at hotels across the city, so you'd do well to pack a flashlight. Staff are friendly and work hard to meet guests' needs, organizing cabs or trishaws (tricycle rickshaws), one of which you'll need to reach the palace and downtown restaurants.

PROS

  • decent value for money
  • attentive staff
  • plentiful hot water

CONS

  • far from most everything
