The best place to stay while in Yangon. Gorgeous decoration, amazing service, kindest staff. Best food in Yangon, Super Chef Mexican Ricardo, also Food & Beverage Manager makes the difference. Would definitely return if possible.

This is where you will want to stay while in Yangon. Some people have complained about it being removed from the chaos of downtown. I quite like being away from it all and you are very close to the Shwedagon Pagoda. The taxi fare was $10 usd to come in from the airport. The hotel is an easy $2 to... More

The Governor's Residence lived up to its reputation. The buildings and rooms are beautiful and the service is amazing. It is a wonderful oasis in the heart of the city. The breakfast buffet is absolutely delicious, overlooking the garden and pool. We had an incredible experience staying here.

It takes a lot of time to get a hotel 'right' but this Belmond really is something special. The service is exceptional and reminds me of my time at Four Seasons where the staff are often one step ahead of you - not like in a big brother way, but they just know what you might need or want at...

Very expensive for what it is. The food not so good! The hotel is far from everything. It was a great dissapointment. I thought that it was going to be the greatest hotel ever. It was noisy, the food terrible and very expensive.

We've stayed in 5-star hotels, hotels featured by various high-end travel magazines, and Belmond Governor's Residence takes the cake. Impeccable service. Rooms were immaculate. Food, impressive. Have gone there twice, and will go there each and every time I'm in Yangon.

To find that pure far eastern hospitality abundant in Thailand and others, in a much less developed country like Myanmar, and no less, is a fabulous experience. The hotel lives up to its reputation and expectations. Front desk staff is impeccable in their kindness and promptness. Breakfast is elegant and quality prepared/served. I could say it was the most beautiful... More
