We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Governor's Residence. The staff was excellent, friendly, and helpful. The food was fantastic. I especially enjoyed going on a tour of a local food market with the chef and then returning to cook and enjoy the meal. The architecture was beautiful, loved the indoor/outdoor dining area and the swimming pool.

Very colonial, luxurious hotel. We arrived very early (5.30AM) with no notice and the staff were so helpful and made up our room within half an hour. The location was great - walking distance to China Town. The restaurant superb and although we didn’t use the pool we could see it from the bar and restaurant and it looked very... More

The property is as beautiful as the pictures show with an amasing breakfast and service second to none. Without Question one of my favorite properties to have stayed at, quiet location, attention to detail and impeccable service.

This hotel has the best service I've experienced in Myanmar. The location is idyllic, food is excellent, enjoyed the Sunday brunch. No taxi drivers know where this hotel is so its worth downloading or keeping a screen shot of the location on Google maps. Charming colonial building, expensive but worth experiencing this place at least once.

When I read that it was a classic hotel I expected colonial style decor and classic rooms. The rooms are simply dated and even below 2 star level. The bathroom was horrible..seemed like a homemade jacuzzi, the toilet of poor quality and the A/C ran poorly and noisily. I must admit that the restaurants are the true highlight of this... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the Governor's Residence at the end of our 3 week stay in Myanmar and it was by far the best hotel we stayed in and I'm guessing the best in Myanmar. It is just so relaxing to turn into the driveway at the end of a day of shopping or touring and just immediately... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few days on our honeymoon and were treated like royalty! The property was absolutely gorgeous and the location was great-- off the beaten path in a quiet neighborhood. Great food and drinks and an even better pool area. And, one of the best breakfast buffets we've ever encountered! Hello free champagne and... More

Arguably the nicest property in all of Burma, this is your best option in Yangon. As an historic property, it's also a slice of colonial life that is tucked amidst embassies, away from the madness of the rest of the city. Definitely a retreat yet feels like you are very much in colonial Burma. The pool is one of the... More

We stayed at the Governor House over the "Vesak" weekend. To say this is a find is an understatement. Located in the Diplomatic area in Yangon, this beautiful, elegant and surreal paradise was the one of the highlights (there were many) from this trip. We stayed in room 302 and then in room 421 ( we broke our stay for... More
