Thank you Terrance for organizing and taking care of everything during our 1 week stay in Myanmar!
My wife and I arrived in Mandalay with only one week in Myanmar and nothing scheduled yet for how best to get around the country. We had obvious concerns on how we would get around this vastly untouched country and online research provided few solid solutions. The moment we entered Smart Hotel we were greeted by Terrance who immediately sat down with us to discuss our interests and what we wanted to see. His fluent English and knowledge of the country alleviated all our concerns right away. Terrance organized our entire week in Myanmar as we travelled by car to Bagan, and then onto Inle Lake, both of which were incredible experiences and quite possibly the highlight of our 3 months in SE Asia. Even more, Terrance kept in frequent contact with our driver and other stops along the way to ensure we were happy and being well looked after. This is above and beyond what any travel agency has done, and far more than anyone can expect from a hotel manager!
I should also mention that it was the girls at the front desk who made all our reservations with such care and concern and it was so nice to not have to organize a thing for the entire week.
The hotel itself is good, but it is the friendly and smiling staff that made this stop completely worth it. I would direct any of my friends to start their trip at the Smart Hotel just for this service alone.
The breakfast in the morning was exceptional and we could easily skip lunch after filling up on this buffet!
Thank you all at the Smart Hotel for making our week in Myanmar so memorable!
