3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Sitting between downtown and Angkor Temple. Not much view but clean, big, good house keeping and convinient. Mr Bunna is really good and helpful as the person in charge. The hotel has 2 entrances one facing the main road and the other on the back. The entrance on the back is new and that is where we stayed. With small pool and cozy walk ways makes the place feel local. Great place to stay.

The reception is pretty cool here, lots of wooden Buddhist statues and artefacts to have a look at. Very clean, comfy bed, safe box, wifi, salt pool at the front. There is an adjoining building for breakfast which was good. Short drive to Angkor Wat heritage site. There is a tuk tuk station just outside which is handy and close to other eateries. Staff very helpful and printed our boarding passes for us.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was spacious & clean, the staff are really helpful and friendly and you are as close to Angkor as you can be still being in the town. Breakfast was good too. It was great to cool off in the pool after a day in Cambodian humidity. Almost next door is the big box bar/resteraunt that provides really good local food at a great price. The hotel offers airport transfers for just $5

Stayed here for a week, kinda wish I'd stayed somewhere else. When I checked in I was on a floor with a group of very heavy smokers. Having just completed a detox it was pretty horrible inhaling strong stale smoke. I was assured that my room wouldn't smell that way but after a couple of mornings waking up with a weird taste in my mouth I knew that the smoke was obviously getting through the crack in my room door and making it into my room. Gentleman at reception was great and immediately helped me to move me to a different floor once I'd pointed out the issue which was good. There were various maintenance issues with both rooms I stayed in...leaky shower fawcet, leaking windows The thing that most perturbed me about my accommodation though was that the female reception crew questioned me whenever I saw her about where I was going, what was I doing, when would I be back etc (same with the tuk tuk driver). I'm a pretty independent person and I felt like I was being interrogated which was not nice. Location wise, there were a couple of ok cafes in the area.

We are picked up from airport by some lovely men. Then once at hotel were a little bombarded by, did we want to book this or that but we had been awake for about 24 hours. The hotel was good room big enough but no lighting for reading so we were happy we bought torches. Breakfast was included and the lady serving it was horrible. Watching tv or YouTube and forgetting to get our breakfast and then once she did it was cold. We had to remind her the last day and we were worried she may have spit in it, out of 5 breakfast 2 were cold 2 were warm and 1 was hot . It was too hard to tell her as she didn't was to talk or come near you bas really not a nice way to start day. The tuk tuk drive that took us to the temples was great but it was really disappointing that when it came to lunch we were guilted into eating at expensive restaurants as he got a free meal. We asked and pointed out a couple of different places he shook his head and said I don't get free meal . One day we asked him to sit with us as he was next table over and he did but when our bill came we had to pay for him. These meals were costing $50 USD even though we were only having fried rice, and 2 or 3 Khmer meals, which is more than what we would pay in Australia. We just felt like they were just taking advantage because we were on holiday and they all assume you are rich. I just want to clarify we didn't expect to get food dirt cheap but didn't expect to be ripped off either. We found a lovely French/Khmer restaurant that was yummy and a good price so we ate a lot there. Over all we had a great time but next time would have put our foot down with tuk tuk driver and chose our places and even would have bought his meal, would have hired a guide as book didn't explain enough, when listening to other guides around they would have been worth the money. This is just our experience and I hope it helps , happy travels

Stuff include cleaning stuff is very kindly and friendly. I stayed four nights. They helped us to suggest the tour to Angkor wat, Angkor thom, Tonle sap Lake, and everything. The interior is very nice. Every furniture is like antique. The room is very clean. As soon as I booked this hotel, they contacted me for picking us up from the airport. Tuk tuk driver waited us at the airport and picked us up to the hotel. There is the hotel between Angkor wat and old market. It is good location to go sightseeing and shopping. Wi-Fi connection is very good. I will stay this hotel definitely whenever I go to the Siem Reap.

if you coming to see angkor wat then everything is taken care of by this excellent hotel. food excursions etc. amazing amount of solid teak everywhere.large bed so heavy it could not be budged. And hotel staff took us by cool tuk tuk to all the main temples for 15 usd. for our whole party. 7am to 7 pm if we wanted but 4 pm in the heat was enough. cant wait to return

First I loved the location half way between the noisy city and the quiet temples. The place was spotless and service was excellent. The beds and the baths were great. We were a small group of friends and everyone was very happy here. I'll book this place again for sure.

Closer to Angkor than to Siem Reap, it still only took me about 20 minutes to walk into town, or was $2 by a tuk-tuk, which the hotel provides. Much quieter at night and a good jumping off point for that 5am start to see the sun rise at Angkor Wat. There is a good restaurant attached which is open for breakfast (check that this is included in your room price), lunch and dinner at good prices - try the chicken and cashews. The gorgeous smile on the girl who works the dinner shift is worth staying in for. There is no lift so a room on the first floor is an advantage. The room was enormous, with it's own private balcony and ensuite bathroom. All facilities provided including the most important - Air conditioning, bottled water, WiFi, and a fridge. There are common rooms for relaxing, with computers free for the use of guests. The hotel is an artwork in itself with all the carved wood panelling. There is a pool, a little supermarket a few doors down (turn left out of the hotel - right to head into town) and it's a 5 minute walk from Wat Tmey with it's memorial to the killing fields. Very helpful staff who go the extra mile to accommodate your wants and needs. It ticks all the boxes and I would highly recommend a stay here while visiting Angkor. Give yourself at least 3 full days to see the sights. The hotel can provide a tuk tuk with personal driver to take you anywhere you want to go, for around $20 per day - it's the only way to travel. My only complaint was that the bed was too short so I could not stretch out, but as I am nearly 2 metres tall, that would not be a problem for most people.

Stayed for 2 nights with a friend. One free airport shuttle provided when we reached Siem Reap Airport early in the morning. Very warm welcome from the staff and they are very helpful to accommodate your needs during the stay. Very clean hotel and surrounded by the greens. The wifi connection is good and I am happy with their swimming pool eventhough it is not too big. We had a comfortable stay and sleep as there are no pubs around and suitable for kids too. There is a hotel restaurant with a great food too. The location is quite close to Angkor Wat and city centre and you can always request for a Tuk Tuk from the hotel desk and the charge should be around 5USD to Angkor Wat or City Centre. Special thanks to Kim as he had arranged all our transport on time during our stay! Will be back again.
