We picked this hotel for river views and sky bar BUT our first impressions were quite bad, we could barely communicate with reception (which isn't there fault but we had high expectations coming from siem reap and it being the capital city) they couldn't provide us with information on local attractions eg killing fields, museum etc. It was a long...

Hotel was in good location in the middle of backpacker district. Staff were really friendly and helped to plan activities and our onwards trip. Breakfast was included and served tasty egg dishes. There's no lift which is a bit of a con but staff helped to carry our bags. Thought it was a bit pricey at 27$ a night (backpacker... More

We've been there for 3 nights, I recommend this hotel, the only minus is the location, because it is a little far away from the centre, but there is a free shuttle service from to hotel, or you can get a tuk-tuk. Very big rooms, clean and comfortable. Good service. Delicious food at the restaurant. Very good hotel!

Staff are very gracious and friendly with one professional GM led by Ms. Saradin Ly who's running this hotel whom I just met at the first time during my stay there, she's very helpful and trustworthy.

This hotel fails to deliver: (a) they did not send the agreed free taxi to the airport, instead we waited for 20 mins and organised ourselves (of course there was no compensation); (b) the bathroom flooded every morning because of poor shower drainage; (c) showers were cold; (d) keysafe was not attached to floor/wall and could be picked up; (e)...

The hotel is not close to town. It looks quite impressive standing out the front, and the foyer is quite nice too. But it's pretty dingy in the rooms. It's not terrible, but for the price I would go somewhere else. The breakfast was really nice, the staff were really nice, although out of all the hotels we stayed at... More
