Not that it would be a stunning hotel, the Belmond is nonetheless very pleasant and the most charming of all in Yangoon. Friendly, tradiational style. Overpriced in comparison with the country, but still the best.

        Rainy Season Price”
        Always wanted to stay here for a Staycation . The rainy season price was good so thought I would give it a try . Room , lovely , Bath - probably the best bath in Yangon. TV very small and didnt work properly quite old , didnt matter as I was not watching TV very much . Pool entrance area was under renovation which meant as there were no steps into the pool I couldnt go in which was a shame as that was the main reason for my stay. Staff , fantastic , location great for romantics . Loved the beds so comfy, Breakfast , the Avocado with shan tomatoes just mouth watering . There was also a sparking wine for breakfast . On the Friday night there was a meet the staff cocktail party , again very well done and was nice to mingle with other guests and meet the key staff . Great Chef and Great Staff .

        Superb attention to detail ”
        Stayed here for 3 nights slightly apprehensive about reviews saying it was overpriced. It isn't. PROS: Excellent breakfast - huge range and fresh ingredients. You can sit outside in the garden too. Staff are extremely attentive bringing you water when at the pool side and also additional drinks at breakfast Excellent English spoken by most staff. All are friendly. The bar is expensive but no more so than what you would pay for any hotel booze. Managers check in on you and offer advice/order taxis for you. Kept luggage for us when we had a red eye to catch. Nice little touches - fruit and cakes brought to room once a day. Suncream and goggles provided poolside (brilliant idea). Lovely wildlife in the grounds (peacocks wandering) Yoga class on weekend mornings - free. Cigars provided at dinner (free) Excellent Wifi connection. CONS: Rooms on ground floor are very dark and you need to switch on a few lamps to see what you are doing. Neighbours can be heard easily when in your room.

        Beautiful, Stylish & Tasteful Hotel - Highly Recommended”
        I stayed at the Governor's Residence for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The decor in the 100 year old building is beautiful, stylish and tasteful and the location is peaceful, but within easy reach of vibrant downtown Yangon. The food quality and presentation are excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the delicious Mohinga for breakfast, the Burmese curries in the Tiffin Box lunch and the sumptuous Afternoon Tea. The biggest asset is the staff however. The management have assembled a courteous, helpful and charming team who go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. I highly recommend a stay at the Belmond Governor's Residence.

        Love this hotel and would visit again. The staff members are well trained and they gave us a detailed explanation to show us every corner of the hotel and all the important thing about the room. Since we went there during new year, the staff were able to let us know which restaurants were still open and even recommended a shop for my friend to buy longyi. The room was well furnished and spacious. The bath tub is wonderful for a relaxing bathe. There was a small shop and bakery inside the hotel and a cafe where you can get some board games to kill time. The choice of food at breakfast was wonderful. The attention to detail can be observed from the variety of the bakery, the salad bar and the drink options. There was a Thingyan water fest at 4pm during our stay. People have the water fight at a corner while enjoying the food and dessert provided by the hotel.

        Old world charm with a boutique hotel feel ”
        Luxury oasis , attentive staff and excellent food & drinks
        Governors residence What can you say? This hotel offers old world charm with a very "boutique" feel to it. Yes there are more modern establishments in town with larger pools, lots of marble and mirrors in the lobby but, if you want excellent service and a great, understated colonial style retreat in the city then you have to go quite a distance to beat this. The main body of the hotel which incorporates the restaurants, shops and bars has been tastefully formed from the original governors house that was built in the 1920's. The gardens and ponds surrounding the property are incredibly lush and even have a resident pair of peacocks. The pool area is quiet and provides an excellent respite from the city. The rooms are housed in more modern blocks to the rear of the original building but have been seamlessly grafted on and feel as though they have always been there. An earlier reviewer mentioned that neighbours could be heard, which is true but the same can be said for any hotel and I can honestly say that it never became an issue for us. We dined at both restaurants and the food and service was excellent in both. A special mention has to be made of the buffet-style curry table, a must for any curry lover with a choice of around 10 different curries as well as a grill station serving prawns and assorted satays accompanied by unlimited draught beer and soft drinks! When you consider that the room rate includes without a doubt the best breakfast buffet in town and complimentary minibar it's no surprise that this hotel remains consistently the best place to stay in Yangon. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

        Hotel design; large bedrooms; excellent food; friendly and helpful staff
        The hotel is beautifully designed, as are the gardens, and both are very well maintained. The food was excellent too, and so too is the layout of the hotel, which offers a few different common areas for guests to relax in. The best feature, however, in my view, is the attitude of the staff who were all, without exception, always smiling and ready to assist with any problem. It is not set up as a business hotel, though wifi internet is available in the rooms and throughout the hotel, and there is also a small business centre.

        Fine Hotel That Tries a Little Too Hard”
        Attentive staff, nice garden, lovely pool
        This nicely restored teak mansion is located in a quiet part of town and is surrounded by foreign embassies. It's billed as a luxury hotel, and that it is. We felt that it was a bit over formal and trying too hard to fit the luxury billing. On this trip we also stayed at both the Savoy (comfortable, low key and relaxed) and the Strand (beautifully restored with an attentive but non intrusive staff). If we return to Yangon we'll probably choose one of those. The only real negative about The Governor's Residence was the air conditioning. Neither our room nor the air conditioned public spaces ever seemed cool or dry enough. For the price one would expect more robust air conditioning.
