A beautiful Colonial style property in a garden setting in the quiet Embassy area of Yangon away from the noise and bustle of the city. Staff were particularly friendly and helpful throughout. The reception was very efficient and welcoming. The rooms are spacious, plenty of wood, again in Colonial style. Ours was on the first floor with good views across... More

We had only a few days in Yangon and our tour guide recommended this lovely hotel for afternoon tea English style. The hotel is a beautiful colonial building on two floors. Surrounded by gardens it is a picture. Our tea room was on the lower floor, but I did get a chance to see the sumptuous open area on the... More

Two dining rooms one in the garden and one upstairs overlooking the garden.Our meals were excellent with my wife's aversion to spices well catered for.One coup... More

Even though we had read good reviews, we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel in Myanmar, a newish country for international travellers. The hotel is situated in the Embassy part of Yangon and is close to the beautiful Shwedagon Pagoda. Service in the hotel was polite and friendly. Food was a very good standard, particularly breakfast... More

The installations are nice, it is an old colonial house for me it looks as a boutique hotel. The rooms are designed on 2 floors buildings. My room was on a 2 floor. It was big but the floor sound when you walk. Also during the night, I listened people talked from outside. The bathroom has a tube with shower,... More

This is billed as THE best hotel in Myanmar. It is good. The service is polite and efficient. It is a nice looking hotel and rooms are kept clean, not exceptional but good in terms of being visually pleasing. However it is very expensive indeed compared with all other places in Myanmar and we travelled quite a bit. I think... More

This is a beautiful boutique hotel in Yangon that is quiet. The food is excellent and there is beautiful local art displayed everywhere. I only wish I had more time to enjoy the facilities as we were here only one night.

I wasn't going to write a review until I read the GM's reply to my wife,Rojaan. We did not book a governor's room.We had 2 nights there as part of a package before our cruise on the Orcaella.With typical Belmond inefficiency we were never told what sort of room we had.At least that was better than many guests on our...

This is truly the place to stay while visiting Yangon. It is exquisitely decorated and the grounds around the hotel are beautiful and immaculate! The bar is a beautiful mahogany and seems to remind us of the 1920's, you almost expect Humphrey Bogart to walk in any minute! The restaurant inside the hotel is very nicely decorated and the green... More

A fabulous hotel with lovely garden and pool area. The staff are attentive and friendly. Rooms are spacious with large comfortable beds. Good range of food for breakfast and the dinner buffet is an opportunity to try various Myanmar dishes. Helpful staff guide your choices and explain the dishes if asked. There is an air of calm and relaxation throughout... More
