“Sunset at Mandalay Hill”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

If you would like to get a good position to take photos you will need to get there early as it gets very busy, we had a pickup truck that took us up to the top other wise it is a very steep and long walk. The Temple at the top is very beautiful all coloured and glass tiles. The view from the top is pretty special and worth going there for, but it does get busy.

“Go for the view”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We drove to the top but if you have time and the weather is mild the walk could be enjoyable. Aside from the view and the people watching we also noticed some hawks hunting - Myanmar is always full of little surprises!

“Pretty, but generic”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This was a pretty hotel. Wi-fi only worked in the lobby. It was $5 for 24 hours, but that was hours logged in, so it lasted me the full time. There are only two small slow elevators, and I found myself in line for them on a couple of occasions. The food was good, and a lot of variety. The staff wasn't nearly as pleasant as all the other hotels we stayed in while in Myanmar. The hotel caters more to the wealthy Chinese and that might have an impact on their demeanor. The prices were high, the wine we've been drinking was about twice what it was at other hotels, and massage prices were about 3 times higher than elsewhere.

“Enjoyable experience you should not miss”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Important climb up this historic hill with fine (but maybe misty) views. I travelled to near the top by taxi with a bad knee ( my wife climbed) and had my first experience of going up - the last leg - via a 3 flight metal escalator in bare feet - quite safe actually if one takes care!
