Uninspiring but adequate
Nylon Hotel sits in among Mandalay's other nondescript no-frills hotels, offering standards such as a complimentary breakfast, WiFi and shabby but livable rooms.
They offer shared or private bathrooms which are clean-ish and have hot and cold-water showers. A generator will keep the fans going during common power cuts, but won't keep the air-con on. Staff are somewhat cordial, but don't add much to the value for your dollar. Nylon Hotel sits within the main cluster of budget hotels in Mandalay's city centre grid, making it a good place to start looking if you haven't booked anything in advance, but make sure to check out the other hotels on the block as well.
