More on Mandalay

Silver Swan Hotel offers well-maintained rooms with plenty of amenities and friendly staff, with prices at flashpacker levels year-round. The hotel is a bit to the southwest of Mandalay’s centre on a nondescript section of 83rd Street, so you will have to walk a few blocks to get to most restaurants.

Travelfish says:

The exterior is typical of the city’s newer hotels, with seven glass-fronted floors plus a rooftop cafe and breakfast area. It is one of the tallest in this area, so views are good and the stairs of polished wooden parquet and bannisters impress. (Don’t worry, there is an elevator as well.) The ochre-painted and varnished wood rooms come equipped with air-con, minibar, satellite TV and, for once, decent bedside lamps. Hot-water bathrooms in the vast deluxe rooms have tubs. All rooms are large, though superior ones have better views.

Lower floor, front rooms with less of a view and more noise are maybe best to avoid -- we’d stump for the extra few dollars to upgrade to superior. The deluxe would be good for families though they will charge $12 per extra bed. Services are efficient with a 24-hour manager on duty, and reception staff offering travel assistance and even complimentary shoeshines. No supplements for high season make this a very good deal to keep in mind.
