Complained and so on visit two given the Governors Suite. Fantastic, just been renovated., and if going again... More

A really lovely haven in a busy city great welcome, superb staff and good restaurants. The prices are typical of a luxury capital city hotel but there are some really nice freebies: beer and soft drinks in the mini bar, neck massages by the pool and excellent coffee and biscuits in the room. We would definitely stay here again if... More

Luxurious hotel in beautifully arranged gardens in the embassy district of Yangon. The rooms spacious and nicely decorated, generous complimentary beverages and fruits, excellent sanitary installations. Fantastic hospitality from the manager down to the cleaning personal. A rich unforgetable breakfast. A first class location for a stay in Yangon.

I stayed at this place 12 years ago and did not hesitate to stay there again last month, since my experience then was superb and this was now a BELMOND PROPERTY......However, I paid $805 for the night of January 20th, 2016... I arrived...and we were given a room worth no more than $100 for the night...I do not exaggerate...! I... More

Very lovely environment. Great ambience. The Mandalay restaurant is very nice, though the quality and choice of food could improve more. Unfortunately we satyed only for a night. This would be a great retreat for a couple of days.

Arriving at this hotel after a long journey is very relaxing. The property is set in lush gardens away from the noise of the streets and is wonderful to return to after the busy sightseeing that Yangon demands. The pool is very well laid out and the restaurant is mostly outside by the side of the lake where a turtle... More

We "topped and tailed" our Myanmar holiday with nights at the Governor's Residence. Although we had been warned that star ratings in Myanmar were effectively one less than one might expect we did think that a Belmond-branded hotel would be superlative. This was not; just about average. While our first room was pleasant our night was ruined by the constant... More

A much appreciated relief from the scruffiness of Yangon. Top quality service and helpfulness from all staff. The restaurant people noticed that I had a cough and, unasked, brought a pot of mint tea as a curative. Food was excellent, though the wines were expensive by European standards. Room well kept and very comfortable with all that one could want.... More

We spent a lovely few days in the Governors Residence, while on route to Bagan. The rooms, restaurants, garden and bars are so nice you will not want to leave the hotel. It is the only place worth staying when in Yangon.
