From the hotel

A romantic, colonial-style mansion dating from the 1920s, The Governor's Residence is redolent of the British era. With its fan-cooled verandas and teak armchairs, this delightful Orient-Express hotel in the elegant Embassy Quarter of Yangon (formerly Rangoon), conjures up a bygone era while offering every modern pleasure.. 

From Hanuman

A member of the Orient-Express family that includes La Residence d'Angkor and La Residence Phou Vao in Luang Prabang, The Governor's Residence is Yangon's most atmospheric boutique hotel. The original teak mansion is a striking architectural showpiece for the property and all rooms are decorated in tropical hardwoods with local textiles. Newly renovated Governor's rooms show some contemporary chic.
