We stayed a couple of nights at ayerwaddy riverview.
The positives:
1. Big, spacious rooms
2. Decent rooftop restaurant - which makes good dinner setting. But lighting & mosquitoes can be tricky.
3. Puppet show at dinner time on rooftop restaurant is very good fun to watch. The artists really do try hard to entertain you.

The not so great
1. There is nothing close by to the hotel as it's on the river side. Means you are stuck in the hotel if you don't have a car. Taxis are also not easy to find in the evening.
2. Breakfast spread is very average. Was easily our least favourite in our entire Myanmar trip

I had picked this place to stay for the river view. Is ok for a short stay - but if planning to spend a longer time in Mandalay - would recommend staying in the city.

Stayed: December 2016, travelled with family

The staff were friendly, particularly the restaurant and bar staff. The sunset view overlooking the river was glorious and the pool area was lovely too. The hotel is situated a bit away from the city centre, which would be fine if Mandalay had more taxis. We assumed that the front desk staff would help us with arranging taxis and private drivers for tours but we were told to find our own. Not very helpful and with the lack of taxis around in Mandalay, this was not an easy thing to do. There are some cool local bars within walking distance, as well as the fish market, but walking into the city centre is not advised. For a hotel which welcomes so many foreign guests, I feel the front desk staff really need to work on their English to improve their service.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a river view room

We came there and had first a misunderstanding, as we booked through Agoda a room with different pictures and our room was already full - after 2 hours discussions, we had no option, stayed there - overpriced but ok - everything in Mandalay is overpriced we found out later ! THIS HOTEL SEEMS ONE OF THE BETTER ONES IN MANDALAY, and has a nice terrace....
Food is good there, still too expensive - for same price you go in first class restaurant in Bangkok, not average in Mandalay...
Service still is good, they offer a cocktail at 5 pm for free at terrace - nice gesture.
Pool is ground floor, too small ! Breakfast is good ! Basically everything there, what you need, vegetarian healthy to heavy european ! Service trying best, even with not so good english or no english ! But they are friendly.
Everything in Mandalay, from Taxi, to service is generell to expensive in this city, nothing is clean, the city is dirty - real dirty !
As good as the location for its terrace is - great view to Mandalay Hill and Riverside, as bad is it if you need to go to city centre - you can walk: 40 min through dark environment, dirty roads, you can take cab - minimum is 7 us#dollars ! You can choose - attention - even that we had fresh banknote us-dollar, they did not accept it, we had to change or pay with credit card - very strange....!
General: Rooms and hotel are in the years - old style and used - needs really a refreshing urgently, and the price should be not 65 - 80 - it should be maximum40 - 50 usD !
Hotelmanagement tries really to explain you the Myanmar situation and prices, nicely, but it does not really help, you are stuck with high taxi-rates and if you want to eat not street food, everything there is expensive ! a usDollar seems to be "nothing".....

Room Tip: Room of 5th floor - 502 or 03

This hotel is living on past glory. It is located out of the centre by the river. Some of the rooms and the rooftop terrace have great sunset views of the river. However, the hotel itself is a bit faded. It's comfortable, but nothing special. Breakfast buffet is OK but doesn't stand out. They rent out bicycles to get around town, but cheaper hotels in Mandalay lend you one for free, as I later found out.

Go for it if you want the river views, otherwise there are many other options in Mandalay.

The rooms are comfortable and the staff is very helpful. Breakfast buffet was all fresh. The major drawback of this hotel is the location. It sits on a busy road where the dust is constantly stirred up. Lots of truck and motorcycle noise. There is nothing within walking distance so you must rely on taxis to get around. Does have wide river views.

Room Tip: River side has views but also street noise.
