Fodor's Expert Review Mandalay City Hotel

26th St. between 82nd and 83rd Sts., Mandalay, Myanmar

Swimming pools at budget hotels are far and few between, and Mandalay City delivers on that front. It's a basic hotel where there are often brownouts, no elevators, and where rooms facing the nearby mosque are quite loud during the morning prayers. Some rooms, while clean, are quite small, and a couple with a lot of luggage will find themselves knocking about. On the plus side, the breakfast buffet is excellent and for lunch and dinner travelers are within walking distance of a handful of small Indian and Chinese restaurants. Mandalay Palace is also within walking distance, though visitors may prefer to hop a cab to the palace and then walk further up to Mandalay Hill.
