            Beautiful sky at sunset - view over the Ayarwaddy - working river, atmospheric experience. Hotel carries sense of history, old and not new - everything worked well though. We loved this experience ✨✨

            Great place to chill after a day in dusty Mandalay. Very nice sky bar upstairs with free sunset welcome cocktail and well trained staff. Great coffee too at the sky bar. I think the best thing about this place is that they offer free water on each floor for you to refill anytime. Also, very nice reception staff and help with any information you may possibly need. Mind blowing how well they all speak English here. Totally recommend the family suites.

            This is one of the few river-side hotels in Mandalay, but as a result, is about 3k from the centre of town. There aren't many shops ot restaurants nearby. The rooms are spacious, clean, well equipped with good wi-fi. We had a rear-facing room, which are much cooler and quieter than the front, river-view rooms that overlook a busy road with hot afternoon sun. The breakfast buffet is vast. The staff are superb - well-trained, speak English and couldn't do enough for you. The top feature of this hotel is the roof-top bar and restaurant, with sweeping views over the river. The bar serves a complimentary, free-flow cocktail of the day to hotel guests daily, for the duration of the spectacular sunset over the river.. Recommended.

            We were impressed by the hotels facilities and the food was excellent. Our only disappointment was that it was away from the center which at night meant we had to use a taxi. However, not withstanding that, we would stay there again.

            Nice view from the roof, but the location is sketchy at night”

            Cons: At night time it is very difficult to find transport to take you to the bars/clubs. The area is considered a little bit on the sketchy side by locals, even though i never personally felt unsafe. Gym equipment is below average. Pool is adequate. Pros: Some nice markets to explore in the mornings close-by and the rooftop terrace has a nice sunset view. Rooms are spacious.

            The Ayarrawaddy River View is a nice hotel overlooking the river in Mandalay. The rooms are not new but in good condition and spotlessly clean. The bathroom is large with a bath tub, and it's own hot water tank. There is a flat screen TV with English channels, and a safe. The rooms are quite spacious. The rooms either have a river view or a city view. We had a city view room which looked all the way to the mountains and Mandalay Hill. Quite a good view! The hotel has a Happy Hour on the spectacular roof top terrace where you receive free house cocktails for the hour. Cocktails are normally K5000-6000 each. The main reason to be at the Happy Hour is to see the sunset which of course is spectacular. The river is wide at this point and there are numerous small boats going up and down the river. The sun sets behind the hills opposite the hotel. It is then rather nice to stay on the roof terrace after Happy Hour and have dinner. The food is OK and consists of pizzas, sandwiches, burgers, pasta dishes, and asian standards. The surrounding area is mostly local markets. It's all a bit dirty and dusty, and chaotic, with cars, buses, and motorbikes weaving in and out near the market, and further down the road herds of Brahman cows grazing on the nature strip. We did not explore the immediate area, although there appeared to be nothing much of interest. You could walk along the riverfront road if you wanted but it's a bit difficult to get a view of the river due to all the stalls. It may be interesting to view local life first hand. The best thing to do if you don't dine in the hotel would be to get a taxi into town. The hotel has a small clean pool with a few deck chairs.. Overall a nice place to stay for a good view of the river and town. The staff are all very nice and helpful.

            Out of the way but beautiful sunsets of Ayerwaddy from rooftop bar!”

            Nice clean hotel that wasn’t very busy. It’s on the more expensive side but if you enjoy gorgeous sunsets of the Ayarwaddy River then it’s the place to go. They even offer free cocktails (their choice of drink) for an hour at sunset. Food was pretty good there as well. Rooms were clean and spacious. Has a makeup area for women. Bathroom comes with a tub. Water was hard to adjust but minor complaint. Pool is small and a little green. They changed the water the last day we were there. Fitness facility is small and dark. One complaint is they have their own taxis that charge too much. Away from the core so hard to get your own cheaper taxi. Problem with Mandalay in general is that the taxis all try to gouge you. The city is so spread out that it is impossible to walk around and there is no discernible downtown core. Spent more on taxis there than anything in Yangon. There is a city amusement park 0.7 kilometres of the hotel. Spent half a day there even though some of the rides were sketchy. Overall a nice hotel with the best view of the Ayarwaddy River. The rooftop bar/restaurant is the highlight!

            I spent two days in Mandalay and the Ayarwaddy River Hotel provided a wonderful and convenient accommodation in the city. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was full of natural light with the great view of the river; and in addition, there was a pool to dip in the hot afternoon. It was a very pleasant stay I had in Mandalay.

            Staff was extremely helpful, Good staff suggestions of what to do, SkyBar Restuarant was wonderful

            I went to Mandalay for a week escape from my work in Singapore. I wanted to be near the river to take advantage of river day trips. The Ayarwaddy Riverview Hotel was a good choice. The SkyBar offered happy hour from 5 - 6 and a riverview sunset from 6 - 6:10. The food, I thought was quite well prepared and moderately priced (USD 6 - 10). Staff was super friendly and when I had a question, often took me to the place in question (Boat Jetty, Medical shop). While there was street noise in the early evening, the noise slep from 9pm until 4am - as a father of 4 kids I know how to shut out noise - so I did not consider this a negative. I enjoyed walking along the river and just watching river life. Would book again

            Food; location; entertainment

            This hotel was refreshingly surprising; it was not our top choice (which was booked) but I have no regrets. The view from our top floor window was outstanding and the food was full of pleasant surprises. Mandalay is a dusty town, with plenty to see and enjoy in the environs (mostly outside of the city itself) and if you have no reason to walk to the town centre (not sure why you would), the views from the terrace over the river are unrivaled - better that Mandalay Hill; better than anywhere else I saw. The biggest surprise was the food - local cuisine, sometimes incorrectly labelled but always delicious and well presented. They even throw in a happy hour and marionette show. The breakfasts are not up to the same standard as the roof terrace (different kitchen?) and the styling is a little tired (varnished Burma Teak deco) if a little spartan but as a place to go after a fun day exploring - fabulous!
