I recently stayed two nights in this place and liked it a lot. Great colonial charm with an impeccable charm makes this place by far the best hotel in Yangon. Relax by the pool or enjoying local food in the open plan upstairs dinning room is all you can ask for.

I am just about to check out of a 2 night stay at the Belmond Governor's Residence in Yangon. We've had a really wonderful time in Yangon and our hotel was immaculate, unpretentious and cosy. The grounds were so lovely and provided a wonderful relaxed ambiance after a busy day of sightseeing. Staff went out of their way to make... More

I was visiting Yangon and stopped to have breakfast on a friends' recommendation. It was absolutely amazing and not overpriced. Service was impeccable, diversity of food impressive, quality and taste without reproach. The old colonial style and scenery adds to the charm and makes it even more enjoyable. Definitely worth a stop even if you are staying at the hotel.

The overall ambience and service are world class. Even though the rooms are not modern, they were immaculate and had a great old world charm and character. Breakfast is one of the best hotel breakfasts I've ever had in the world. Would definitely stay there again. We had a family suite and the kids could not stop talking about how... More

At USD$782 per night, naturally one would expect the hotel to have some WOW effects, especially after reading all the wonderful reviews. However my personal experience is rather disappointing. Service is attentive, but lacks sophistication and it dose not exceed expectation. There is no workout facilities in the hotel, so we jog outside the hotel, but were given wrong direction... More

The good - exceptional and intelligent service. Unlike other hotels where staff uses a few cliché sentences in clumsy English to entertain guests, this is good attentive and smart service, delivered in fluent English by all staff. Everybody will know your name in the hotel and will be familiar with what you're doing. - well maintained teak with charming colonial... More

On arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff who bang the drum on guest arrival and provided us with jasmine necklaces and some pre-arrange train tickets and welcome drinks. We were taken to our upgraded room, a suite with two bedrooms, perfect for our trio of travellers. The hotel grounds are peaceful and activities included in the cost which we... More

This hotel is supposed to be among the best in Asia, but while the rooms are very spacious and clean, we felt the service and location did not match the rating. This was a one night stay. The rooms are full of chararcter, and the local Teak features strongly. However the service seemed to lack genuine concern, and the breakfast... More
