We arrived in Mandalay on a burning hot day in the hot season and Smart hotel welcomed us with cold fresh towels and a drink in their lobby. This was the 1-0 headstart the hotel kept up during our 3 night stay. Nice central location close by major sights in Mandalay (rent a bike nextdoor for 3000 kyat or so, it's worth it). Mr. Terrence, the manager was really kind and even helped us put together a great trip to the Inle Lake (tip: ask for it, you won't be sorry!). The staff will help you with everything, from renting a bike to reserving your busticket. The hotel is clean, has WiFi (Myanmar style) and a variated breakfast buffet.
We ended up saying hi again to mr. Terrence on our way down to Bagan and he appreciated that by offering us a nice coffee and a chat about our trip. We could spend some time waiting for our next bus in the skybar, seeing sunset and had were served really nice (again) by Shwe Toe and H-Zaw.
Smart hotel fur us really was a smart hotel :)
