By the time we got to Governor's we were at the end of our 4 week visit to Myanmar and we had certainly saved the best till the last! There is only one word - perfect! The pool area is cleaned and maintained to a very, very high degree and the cleanliness of the hotel can only be described as... More

We spent two nights in the Governor's House in Yangon and once more the Belmond Group didn't disappoint us. Nice hotel with a special (colonial) atmosphere and what a staff! First night we had a room with a too noisy airconditioning but the second night was perfect. We had the best breakfast of the whole Birma trip in this hotel... More

just outstanding, the staff are all very friendly and helpful. Great food both at dinner and one f the best breakfast choices we have had worldwide. Free mini bar was a nice bonus and lovely fruit plus a bottle of free sparkling wine on arrival was a nice touch.

This is probably one of my top-5 hotels in the world. Gem of the colonial times, brilliantly restored. Beautifully located slightly out of the noise and dust of the city centre but only a short taxi ride away. Attention to detail was superb in everything from the room to the food and the warmth and personal attention of the staff.... More

After 10 days traveling Myanmar this was the perfect place to end our stay and summed up all that is great about the country; it's beautiful, the people are friendly, it's historic, the food is good... need I go on? The rooms are excellently presented (I am a sucker for wooden floors and comfy pillows). Everything in our mini bar... More

We stayed hear just recently for 3 nights at the start of our 3 week trip around Myanmar. The rooms are simply stunning as were the staff. The size and cleanliness was first rate and the food in either the dining room or from the buffet was excellent. The breakfast was also wonderful. It is close to the Pagoda and... More

An excellent experience in a well-managed hotel with one of the best breakfasts we have had anywhere in the world. If we were in town again we would not hestitate but to stay here again. The loud "rock" band in the upper bar one evening was unwelcome and unnecessary.

We stayed at the Governor's Residence for one night before flying to Heho for a stay at Kalaw and then again on our return from Mrauk U before flying out the following morning for Luang Prabang. We had also stayed there in 2014 when visiting Yangon for the first time. Although not in the centre of the city it is... More

We had three days in October and then another three days in November and I cannot think how it could be improved. Staff are wonderfull and cannot do enough without being pushy, most speak good English and they are always cheerful. The manager is a most personable chap who knows what he is doing and is always available. One of... More

We stayed at The Governor's Residence for 2 nights prior to joining the Belmond 'Road to Mandalay' cruise for 4 nights from Bagan to Mandalay. The hotel situated in the Embassy Quarter is a heaven of tranquility with a lovely pool in lush surroundings. Our room was very comfortable and the complimentary mini-bar a bonus. All the staff members we... More
