“Either medium or funny. Depending on your sense of humor”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the hotel. It's new, it's clean, the beds are comfortable, the staff tries. In a small provincial Chinese town (say around 13,000,000 population) it would pass as a five star. The decor is something out of a Chinese movie, heavy on the dark wood, chairs so heavy you can't move them, low watt light bulbs. Free wifi which is slower than molasses in cold storage. The bathroom has a bathtub on wheels, and a shower in the middle of the room which means you never have a dry bathroom, and the towels are always wet. Although its not in the center of town, it's easily accessible, but don't plan on walking anywhere. Not a first choice by any means, but ok until the bathrooms are overcome by mildew, which they surely will be. Ok breakfast buffet, very expensive drinks.

Room Tip: Try for a higher floor, at least you will have daylight.

This is a newish hotel outside the city. I can only describe it as bizarre. The decor tries a bit too hard on the "authentic Burmese" front. The bathrooms have these weird showers that flood the whole bathroom (and I've seen plenty of "wet room" style bathrooms in my time). The hotel infuriatingly charged a fortune for a weird New Year's Eve party - this has happened to me elsewhere in Asia before - but there was no value for money here. The NYE performance was catered to locals, they gave one free beer, and the food was mediocre. The view from the bedroom was of barren, litter strewn fields. Definitely not the Mandalay experience I was hoping for.
