Compared to its midrange competitors, Mandalay City Hotel has a very convenient, central location and manages to squeeze in a decent sized pool, albeit having slightly higher rates to go with it.

The pool area is set in a small but cute garden; the restaurant and bar area is pleasantly laid out and the rooms are great.

What is peculiar though is the hotel’s entrance. On 26th, a driveway forms a tunnel through a commercial property which looks onto the hectic road. It looks like the entrance to an underground car-park. Follow it for 20 metres though and you’ll emerge into a small outdoor parking area with the actual hotel doorway ahead, down a covered walkway lined with fishponds, palms and lilies. The hotel’s promotional blurb calls it an oasis and while the quiet gardens are limited in size, in the context of traffic-clogged 26th Street, it is a reasonable description.

Reception is straight ahead, behind which is their bright, glass-roofed breakfast and cafe area, from where a door leads into a small garden surrounding a secluded pool. To the right a two-storey block houses front and back rooms.

There’s a choice of superior and deluxe rooms as well as a few suites. All are immaculately clean and very well appointed. Efficient air-con, cable TV, minibar, free tea and coffee, bathtubs, quality toiletries and large beds feature in all rooms, though only deluxe have views, with superiors facing the building opposite. Decoration is uncluttered and appealing.

Staff members are helpful, if on the formal side. Note that they couldn’t confirm what their high season rates for 2016-2017 were set to be when we visited. We’d expect a 25-30 percent increase for their busier months. All things considered, this is a good deal if it falls within your budget.
