Hotel costs in Myanmar can be high and acceptable options and standards are struggling to cope with increasing demand as a tourist destination. In this context the Hotel Myanmar represents reasonable value and comfort.
The Hotel Mandalay has a retro feel that probably hasn't changed since the fifties. An overall shabbiness pervades and hopefully in the future a refurb may be possible. The plumbing and fittings certainly do not appear to have been upgraded since the hotel was first built.
We had a room at the rear of the hotel with neighbourhood views and which was quiet. Front rooms are on a busy road so not sure if this will affect sound levels in the room.
Room was large with heavy dark wooden furnishings and wood floor. Room generally was clean and bed was comfortable.
If you care to negotiate the broken concrete slabs of the footpath and the traffic, it is a short walk to the Diamond Shopping Plaza.
Tried the Chinese restaurant one night, service was very slow and food was ordinary.
This was the only dining option in the Hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful which was a big bonus.
