We went to Mandalay over 2 years ago. The hotel was in good conditions, friendly staff and their boss as well. They served cold towels everytime customers entered even when they were new or just been outside under the heat and that was a very nice greeting. Every dinner each customer got a cocktail free of charge. The view from...

This place is rated 4 stars - but it's presentation is barely 2 stars. The only saving graces are the pretty-good service and the rooftop "restaurant" which has spectacular views of the city, and acceptable breakfast food. But you have to venture through unmarked, filthy hallways to get there. ALL the guest-room doors close only if you slam them, so...

Similar to many properties in the area, the hotel is good value. Interior is a bit dated but still worth it. Room size is decent, includes AC, hot water and TV with 2 English channels, one movie and one news [CNN]. Staff are helpful. Breakfast is good with choices and options. Mandalay is pretty spread out. I found the location...

It's easy to locate and my bus from Bagan dropped me off exactly in front of Smart Hotel. I agree with some travellers, it is a bit dated but my stay was a very good one. Wifi and the elevator worked well, the room was clean and spacious. The staff recommended one of my best meals in Myanmar, a vegetarian...

This hotel was the quirkiest of our Myanmar stays. Eclectic wallpaper and dated styling coupled with really friendly and welcoming staff. The hotel was very clean, if worn in places but we had a lovely stay. The Skybar is a great spot on the roof for breakfast and an afternoon beer overlooking the city. They even have some telescopes. Room...

This hotel is a good pick if you are coming to Mandalay on the train from Yangon - after 15 hours rocking and rolling over the old tracks, all you want to do is settle into your room and lie down! It's also conveniently placed for visiting sights like the Zegyo market and there are some nice restaurants in the...

I stayed there for one night and it was safe, decent and in a good location that's not far from the palace, railway station and some shopping area. The room was Ok , has clean bedsheets and with hot shower. They serve free cocktail in the evening at the rooftop restaurant . Staffs are friendly but they should be more...

We stayed here before and after out trip to Bagan, and I have to say that the Smart Hotel treated us very well.
