Ive stayed in some 53 countries and in thousands of hotels but couldn't describe the true extent of how terrible this hotel is. There are mosquito problems, I think they are the only guests who like the hotel. There is only internet in the lobby, and when for 10 hours straight it didn't work and I continually complained, I was... More

As a traveller to Asia, the constant fear of malaria or dengue fever...or some stomach bug is never far from my mind. Upon entrance to this hotel, the first of these fears became a reality. The hotel lobby - and it further expands to rooms, is inundated by mosquitos. I don't know if it was the time of the year... More

Bedrooms and foyer overrun with mosquitoes, this would be particularly hazardous in Dengue season. Customer service is limited. I do not hold staff to blame overall they are pleasant and obliging though they clearly need better training. Issues. really poor internet connectivity and no internet available in the room. Noisy air-conditioning, poor room cleaning. One staff member involved in food... More

When I first stayed at Mandalay Swan, some ten years ago, I felt it was unexceptional and wallowing in averageness. On a recent visit I was struck by how they have maintained that tradition of mediocrity. On the good side: decent breakfast, good egg lady. Room size was ok and quiet. Clean enough, but a few mosquitoes. But acceptable overall.... More

Well, the breakfast was fine, and the bed was OK. But the room was just adequate -- poor enough that some members of our tour group went elsewhere. A few items: small, narrow room; shoddy linens; threadbare furnishings; noisy A/C.

The Mandalay Swan is like the ancient family pet that no-one can quite bring themselves to put down. The incontinence (toilets that refuse to flush), the mess on the carpets (unchanged, quite possibly for decades), the deafness (staff unable or unwilling to hear), the cataracts (windows in need of a clean) and the smell (an unrefined mix of mildew and...

This hotel was booked as a replacement by a local guide, and while nothing was terrible, it was fairly poor to average all around. The hotel itself and the room were both outdated, the beds over-used, and service mediocre. The pool was the nicest part of the hotel. Breakfast was decent.

The Swan is a good place to get a quiet night rest and enjoy a great food buffet in the morning with real coffee. The rooms are clean but a little dated and the two channel tv is small but it does the job, the bed is amazingly comfortable. The only lacking areas is the Internet which is $2+ an... More

We only had a one night stay at this hotel in Mandalay but were very disappointed. We had left our trip booking rather late so the agent had trouble finding accommodation to fit our itinerary and as a result we felt lucky to get a room. The hotel is old, and needs a lot of refurbishing or perhaps pull it... More

Room 109 was very spacious and overlooked the pool. The main bed was enormous and there was room to swing several cats in the bathroom. Plumbing was great (Armitage Shanks!) and the air-con was very effective. The sockets were UK 3 pin sockets. The pool was clean and not too busy. My only real criticism was that the staff could...
