Swan Hotel Mandalay Reviews
across the Mandalay Palace & Fort Jan 26, 2011
This hotel is located at a very busy road, across the Mandalay Palace & Fort walls (the walls are two miles long, 26ft high and guarded by a 230ft-wide moat!).
We spent three nights in this hotel, two nights in a standard room and one night in a superior room.
Breakfast in buffet style (eggs in any style, fruit, bread, coffee, tea). Messy room. Don’t (please…) look at the table cloth…. filthy.
There is a pool, didn’t try it, but heard that the water was very chilly.
Nice spacious lobby with a coffee corner where you can order a prober cappuccino (or other coffee).
Room 223, a standard room (first floor, no elevator), was a small room. Television, a/c, fridge. A very small bathroom. The toilet didn’t flush properly and the cement (kit?) was filthy.
Room 155, a superior room on the ground floor was spacious, even empty (not much furniture in the room). Television, a/c, fridge. Bathroom okay.
Service in the hotel is friendly. Getting a bucket with ice cubes (to cool our wine) was no problem.
Next door (part of the hotel) is the ‘Peking Restaurant’, where you can have a pizza or other international food.

About 5 minutes walking from the hotel we found a nice, local restaurant. I don’t have a name, the staff didn’t speak English, but we had a marvellous (full meal) soup with fresh vegetables and noodles, served with the most friendly smile! Price: about US $ 2!
To get to this place: leave the hotel, turn to the right (walk along next door Sedona Hotel), cross the intersection. Walk about 100 to 200 metres (on your right hand first an amusement hall, a local restaurant with a big terrace) and you’ll see a restaurant with wooden chairs (the local places mostly have plastic chairs), you can only sit inside, but the façade is merely open. That’s the place to be!!
