We stayed here on two occasions once on the first floor (to be avoided because of: proximity to housecleaning carts and other items, lack of view) and once on the fifth floor (very nice view). The rooms were clean and tidy (but had some mosquitoes). At this hotel we were especially grateful for the Rooftop Terrace, the Buffet Breakfast, and the Central Location. The only drawback was the desk staff that we found to be rather clueless and spoke little english. For Mandalay, we think it was a great choice. We also thought it was a bit odd that the artwork was all still in plastic wrap, but this was tiny a detail that didn´t affect our stay.
