This is a haven in Yangon, the hotel is the old Governor of Yangon's residence built in the 1920's I think. Beautiful timber everywhere, comfortable beds, spacious rooms & nice bathrooms. Great pool, very lush surrounds, glorious to get back here after a tiring day sightseeing. Food was good, although service was a little slow (we were here with a... More

I selected this hotel by looking at other guests' reviews, and once back home I decided to write myself one because the hotel totally deserves it. From the first moment we felt like the only guests in the hotel, but there were many others at the same time! The main building is an impressive wooden house from the 1920's, impressive.... More

Stayed at Governors Residence for 3 nights over a business trip to Yangon and it was very difficult to fault. The place is simply beautiful with a huge garden and very large swimming pool. Weather was poor so i couldn't really use it. The hotel is 5 star, with higher prices compared to other choices in the city. Rooms are... More

A lovely hotel, more precisely a Burmese mansion with large spacious rooms. All the necessary comfort, beautiful gardens and pools and a lovely covered large veranda where you can have an evening drink with friends. The cuisine is excellent and the service impeccable. It is situated in the embassies district of Yangon so very central I would surely go back

Despite limitations caused by the current situation in Myanmar (ie limited Internet accessibility, etc) Governor's Residence offers the best possible for that country. It is beautifully situated in luscious gardens. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff despite language limitations is exceptional, the food cooked by chef Ian simply delicious (I loved the foie gras) and food and beverage manager... More
