Mandalay City Hotel

Room Type: Superior, Deluxe

Descripton: As other reviews have said this place is indeed an oasis in Mandalay. The rooms are comfortable and fairly basic but compared to the Royal Orchid around the corner they are luxury! Breakfast the most ordinary we had in Myanmar.

I have stayed in worse hotels.
At the time we booked a Superior Room at this Hotel, we did so with some trepidation having read TA reviews. Wife and I were very pleasantly surprised. It is in a good location, it is not down a dark alley as some have suggested, and it is not dark and dingy. From the front door staff to reception to the cleaners, everyone has a smile and one is made to feel right at home. The fact that it has no lift did not worry us – the staff will carry your heavy bags with no complaint. By the way, The Strand in Yangon only has one VERY slow lift resulting in one having to use stairs so if that is all you have to complain about then you are hard to please. We did not have much of a view out of our window but we had NO view at The Strand and this Hotel was about one quarter of the price of The Strand! The breakfasts were good, the room size was adequate, good airconditioning, free wifi in the lobby, and a pool to have a quick dip at the end of a hot day. I felt this Hotel was good value for money and I really have to query what some people expect when paying such modest room rates.
