I arrived here with my friend and traveled from Yangon to Mandalay for 7-8 hours. It’s still dark when we arrived at the hotel may be around 5 am. Good thing grab tuk-tuks are available 24/7. So from the bus station, it still took us 8-10 mins before reaching our hotel where we will stay for the next 2 days. And we stayed at the Wilson Hotel in Mandalay, Myanmar.
I’ll tell you in detail about how we get here in my next article so stay tuned. 😊 Moving forward, I’ll share with you first our experiences at the Wilson Hotel. From arrival until our departure.
As we arrived, receptionists were warm and welcoming even though we came really late than the expected time. They assisted us as fast as they could because we’re both look exhausted upon arrival. They asked for our passports and immediately handed the key to our room. Very efficient check-in! Good Job!
We were given a room with 2 twin beds on the high floor. The deluxe room is 26 sqm wide with city view and equipped with air-conditioning, 32-inch LCD TV, Minibar, Telephone, Safety deposit box, built-in desk, and a receiving area.
It has complimentary bottles of water, bags of teas and coffees, bathrobes and private bathroom. Inside the bathroom, there are necessary toiletries like shampoo, body soap, dental kit, and shaving kit. In addition, there’s also a hairdryer, hand and bath towels, and slippers.
Facilities and Services
This is the highlight of our stay here at the Wilson Hotel Mandalay. I can say that their breakfast was up to the luxury hotel standards. Meaning to say, they cater to different cuisines like Western, Asian, and mostly the traditional Burmese breakfast that will definitely satisfy your taste buds.
The restaurant has a wide dining area overlooking the city of Mandalay. It’s really a perfect and suitable spot while having meals at any time of the day.
Outdoor Fitness Center
The fitness center is thoroughly equipped with exercise equipment like exercise mats, weights, stationary bicycles, pull-up bars, and powerlifting bench press. This is located right next to the outdoor pool.
There’s nothing really special to do after a scorching-hot-tour rather than to dive into the pool! 😊 The outdoor pool is ideal for kids and adult guests. It is also located outside next to the fitness center which is also perfect after your workout. It’s a good place to relax while seeing the view of Mandalay City at night.
The hotel offers 24/7 in-room dining, Barbeque Facilities, Coffee shop and lounge, meeting rooms, laundry service, and airport transfers. If you’re adventurous they also have bicycle rentals for you to use and roam around the city. If you’re not, don’t worry they arrange tours for their guests around the city of Mandalay, Bagan, and a lot more interesting destinations.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to approach the receptionists and I know they will be happy to assist you.
“Generally, It was a good stay. Staffs are very courteous and welcoming. Breakfast was superb! Though there are only a few things to work out here as some of the things around are quite obsolete now. But I know that the Wilson Hotel Mandalay management is doing something to sort all the things out and will soon get back on track. In which I’m looking forward to and I’m so excited to stay here again when I get back to Mandalay. Good luck and Great Job to all of you! Thank you. See you all next time! 😊”
