We are teachers so whilst having to work flat out in term times we have the luxury of being able to travel every holiday. Consequently we have experienced a lot of hotels. The Governor's Residence in Yangon ranks right up there at the top of our list. We stayed for a total of nine nights at the start and end of a trip around Myanmar. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. ALL of them were lovely, helpful, friendly and professional - especially Htay Htay Pwin who served the wonderful mohinga (fish noodles - traditional Burmese breakfast) every morning. The food was stunning - both at breakfast, at the surprise cocktail party and in the restaurant in the evenings.
Beautiful old colonial style building - an oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of Yangon - with well presented rooms. The rooms had everything you would want including a daily delivery of fresh fruit and sweets.It would have been nice to have been able to read more easily in the room however - it was a little dark in the evenings.
We had friends who stayed at the famous Strand Hotel at the same time as we stayed at the Governor's Residence and whilst the Strand sounded great (and looked good when we visited for a drink) I'm glad we stayed at the GR. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: The steps up to the top floors can be a bit slippery in the rainy season.

There is a small swimming pool but during rainy season was perfectly enough. Amazing breakfast with a delicious choice of asian and particularly burmese food. I loved the veranda! and the nice cocktails!

Let me begin by saying this is a lovely colonial style hotel. The rooms are lovely ( large stone spa baths, couches etc) and the grounds immaculate with an amazing pool. For a honeymoon or other holiday experience this is hard to beat. The staff are very accommodating - they go the extra mile to help you out. The downsides are that it's expensive (300$ a night all up) as are the food and drinks and it's a way to town for going out. As a business hotel it's not as good as it could be - I found the Internet slow in my room and I had to ask for an ironing board. I had mixed feelings - I normally stay t the traders hotel which is less grand but more practical. I think horses for courses - absolutely go if you are in town on holiday but for a business trip I would use the traders.

This hotel brings you back to colonial times in Yangon with lot's of rotan seats in the cosy ,open air lounge and spacious suites with lot's of teak. Restaurant offers first class cuisine, both local as well as European food. The hotel has a nice open air pool. Staff is extremely helpfull. Is located in the residential area of embassies, away from the hassle and buzz of downtown city. The best choice if you need to stay in Yangon ( better than Strand hotel!).

OK. I couldn't stay here but so badly wanted to. They are fully booked, but ate here and the food is excellent, the service great and the property is the best in Yangon. Yes, the prices are also the most, but you pay for what you get and here it's worth every penny. This would normally be twice the price elsewhere in the world.
