I originally chose the Golden Banana Resort as it was well located and reasonably priced. Upon arrival I was blown away by everything - it was fabulous. The people that worked there were genuinely polite and friendly. The food was fantastic - the meals we had there were by far the best in all of Siem Reap. The room was... More

Everything is a good value in siem reap, but at the golden banana, you get everything you could want, except maybe the beach, for $24 a night (when we were there). The staff were very helpful arranging an english speaking temple guide, breakfast was adequate (egg sandwich with coffee and fruit). The winning point for this hotel is the pool,... More

First found out about this place on our Lonelyplanet guide before researching it here. We arranged airport <-> resort transfers by tuk tuk, a definite must do. From the time we arrived at the resort to the time we left, our stay was fantastic. It was excellent value for money. The breakfast was great. We arranged our tour guide, tuk... More

We are a gay couple, and read some positive reviews about this place. We were not disappointed. This place is most definitely gay-friendly. Our driver picked us up from the airport and everything went smoothly from there. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated, down to the prints on the walls and the flowers.... More

The Golden Banana was fantastic! The rooms had character and were not just cookie cutter hotel rooms. I loved the outdoor bath, the rain shower and the balcony overlooking the pool. This resort was just the right distance to walk to the main market area but was not noisy at all. The service is what truly makes this hotel unique.... More

Stayed here as a solo female traveller intent on experiencing what I could of Siem Reap and Angkor Wat in 3 short days. This was the perfect accommodation for me - very central location with a sense of local "authenticity". Great security, wonderful rooms with a sense of elegance, lovely salt water pool, hotel tuk tuk drivers who are absolutely... More

We stayed for a week at the Golden Banana Resort with our children aged 11 & 6 years. It is a hidden gem & an oasis of calm in the centre of Siem Reap town. The staff are what makes this place and they are so friendly, polite and welcoming. We stayed in the villa with upstairs outside bath, shower... More

I have stayed at the Golden Banana twice now and the reception of the staff is so welcoming, there is nothing too hard for them. The first time I stayed in their budget B&B which was cheap and cheerful the highlight was having breakfast by the pool, this time we up-graded and it was worth every cent! Our rooms were... More
