Settled in the middle of busy city. Governor's residence has wonderful pool to cool off after the terrible heat of Yangon. Breakfast was delicious with local noodle soup. The manager and all the staff were very friendly and attentive. One of the best Belmond property we ever stayed. We will stay here again if we come back to Myanmar.

Governor's Residence is truly a luxurious haven of peace in a bustling Yangon. It is located in the quiet embassy area but it is also a nice walk away from Shwedagon Pagoda, while downtown is reachable in a 10-15 min taxi drive. We stayed there on two occasions for a total of 4 nights, both at the beginning and end... More

So this review needs to be qualified by the fact that our recent experience of the Belmond brand includes das Cataratas in Iguacu - one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at, and a past experience at the Copacabana Palace in Rio, a pretty good if not quite as great hotel. The Governor's Mansion by means of comparison should... More

Peaceful retreat in a quiet part of a bustling city. I was upgraded to a governor's room which was well appointed with teak in abundance. Very welcoming staff. If anything staff were a little too attentive with at least four enquiring as to my satisfaction with the steak I was eating. However I am certain this reflects a genuine concern... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is lovely and spacious. An green tranquil oasis in the busy city. The rooms are a perfect size- we had a 2 bedroomed as there were 4 of us travelling together. My only issue here was that only 1 of the bedrooms had a bathroom. Getting ready to go any where took... More

This is a beautiful hotel right out of Somerset Maugham novel - with all the conveniences a modern day traveller looks for. You take a beautiful walk through well manicured gardens and the swimming pool to get to the hotel proper. Rooms are large and well apportioned and have good wifi connectivity. There are a couple bars and restaurants to... More

Belmond Governor's is truly an oasis in a bustling SE Asia mega-city. The rooms are set back in a very beautiful garden, and have all the modern conveniences. Rooms are also very large. Restaurant provided great meals. Staff were incredibly friendly and service oriented. They even were great with our young children. Great open canopy bar. Movie nights on Wednesdays... More

This hotel had been a private mansion, apparently, dating back to the 1920's. Beautiful grounds and buildings with teak accents and lush landscaping. We had trouble with the bathroom fixtures that were never fixed, hence the 4 instead of 5 stars, but the luxurious and welcoming feeling of the place and the excellent staff more than made up for the...

Being a Belmond hotel we were not surprised with the high quality service and perfection in all details… still it s nice to see you get what you expected…and even more since the staff was particularly kind and helpful. Rooms and bathroom are elegant and comfortable, the pillows are something to mention as pure perfection. Pool is wonderful and breakfast... More
