The Swan Hotel is located across the main street, (26th) from the Palace in downtown Mandalay. It has expansive, well-kept grounds giving it a park-like look. The building is 20 to 25 years old and decently maintained; no black mold or peeling paint. The layout is airy and open with a two storey entrance lobby flanked by the check-in desk... More

A recent business trip to Mandalay, a location I have heard about all my life was a dream come true. My stay was organised and for one night it was adequate. The location was great. The staff was excellent and the accommodation was adequate, nothing startling. The hotel had a large pool and catered for families and despite signs around... More

the internet won't work, mosquitos would trouble you, Tap water smelled, used bottled water to brus, the linen and towels were cleaned though, though it would be much cheaper than sadona being at same location, big mistake, sifted to sedona next day

The hotel is quite a well located but from the first moment you see how much much out of date it is. Swiming pool is nice but wifi working really extremy bad and only in loby. It is hard t find any restauratnt arount. Next time i would prefer to stay somewhere else.

Mandalay is changing fast. Prices of most hotels have doubled or tripled in the past 2 years, but the Swan has remained affordable and now is really good value for its good central location, free Wifi, and quietness. You pay triple for going to the Sedonna next door - for their food and room. The Swan has been refurbished in... More

I stay in this hotel in may 2014 for business. Myanmar is a beautifull country, but poor! His infrastructure is also poor! I get also problems with mosquitos, but more in the lobby, and when you have a good product, they don't touch you!! About the Wifi, I had the chance to live in a room near the reception. So... More

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
