Well, what a lavishness..... - Review of Mawlamyaing Strand Hotel, Mawlamyine, Myanmar
As the first critic of this real estate, I concur that the beach is probably the best choice in Mawlamyine - and it is not very costly for the best hotel in the city. Although oddly enough, despite the fact that it just opened in 2011, they seem to be doing much more building on at least one of the storeys.
A round (or almost round) cubicle in the bath was somehow substituted by a square one, making the entry to the bath unpleasantly narrow. Another special feature of the place, like another critic, that the hotel's view is "reversed". You put the cockroach repellent around the bedside, which frightened me the first few nights until I was sure there were no cockroaches.
A last important point I would like to make is that this hotel is really not suitable for independents due to the restricted English language skills and the restricted tourist skills (from a tourist point of view) among the many receptionists. Quite straightforward questions like getting coach seats were answered with empty eyes, then, after much debate, wrong information (e.g. we were advised that the only way to get a ticket was to get to the coach terminal, which is not true).
Eventually we thought of asking them to make our booking at our next hotel, as we had made the remainder of the journey, but determined that it wasn't even worth the effort to do so. The rating is the personal judgment of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
