We stayed at the Purple Mangosteen for two nights and loved this cute little hotel based in the heart of the city in one of the smaller alleyways. The room was very clean and comfortable with great AC. We used the hotel driver to take us around to the main sites in Siem Reap, he was very reliable and make... More

Overall I like the hotel, the staff is very helpful, location is very strategic because the hotel is in the heart of Siem Reap. Everything was by walking distance to Pub Street, Night Market, massage centre and numerous cafes. The hotel ia cosy, and I also like the fact that the hotel have only six rooms, so it was kinda...

The owner Phally and her two sisters are doing a great job running this fairly small hotel in the heart of Siam Reap. The rooms are clean with comfy beds and AC and the food is wonderful. Sitting out-front in the small alley and sipping a Lemongrass Mojito is just the perfect ending for a long day in the Angkor... More

From airport transfers, tour arrangements, meals, and our room on the 3rd floor, The Purple Mangosteen exceeded our expectations. Best about the hotel is its location, because Pub Street, the night markets, convenience stores, spas, and souvenir shops were literally right outside our doorstep. Staff was very friendly and answered all our queries adequately. Our tuktuk driver, Map, gave great... More

We stopped in for dinner on a whim as it looked so inviting located in a cool little corner with some other stylish bars and shops. The service and food were gorgeous and excellent value. Great spot to watch the world go by!

Found this hotel under booking.com and we are very happy with this hotel. It is clean and the staff are all friendly. The owner of the hotel is a cambodian and very helpful. The location of the hotel is very convenient with lots of choices for food. Do book early cos this hotel only has SIX rooms!!

We walked by this place looking for a "refreshment"...see the sign on the wall "try our lemongrass Mojito"...So I did! Well this place became an every nigh stopper for us! Phally, the hotel owner and awesome bartender is so kind. An American bartender was here on vacation, asked for the mojito and fell in love. She asked Phally to show... More

Location wise, it is next to pub street and in walking distance with the night market so it is very convenient. Good customer service. And the best part of it all is that their rooms have ample power points with built-in international power plug!

This hotel is brilliant.The staff are so friendly and helpful. They even let me have my old room after check out to relax and wait for my flight. It can be a little noisy sometimes, but it didn't bother me. The room was really clean, and the bed very comfortable. I'd stay here again.
