I stayed at Room 5 with 3 of my friends. We love the shower most as it was very spacious and clean. The room itself was very spacious and well maintained. The staff were very helpful with our querries. Our tuktuk driver, Saru, was always on time even if he slept for only 2-3 hrs the night before. The owners... More

We wanted somewhere central and comfortable to stay for our half week in Siem Reap and the Purple Mangosteen delivered and more. Great price on our room, and they even organised a free pickup(tuktuk) from the airport when we arrived. We had some communication problems with one of our tours, that we arrange ourselves. But they were happy to help... More

The rooms are spacious and super clean, location is perfect in the middle of town (walking distance to pretty much everything), staff can't be more helpful and will be very happy to help you out with anything. To cut a long story short, book it now! :)

We loved the Purple Mangosteen and would absolutely recommend it to travelers coming to Siem Reap and/or the temples of Angkor. It's right in the center of the old quarter, on a charming narrow lane. There are dozens of restaurants, bars and shops within a 2-3 block area. Our room was on the top floor (#6), with a window overlooking... More

This is delightful place ... The rooms are spacious with lovely bathrooms, noiseless AC that works, complimentary tea, coffee & water. I'm extremely happy with this hotel and recommend it strongly to anyone traveling to Siem Reap. It is really everything you want in a hotel. Central but not noisy .... tasteful, clean and spacious but not too expensive. The... More

There's nothing like staying in a place close or within walking distance to almost all the key places in Siem Reap. It’s not a five-star hotel yet the cleanliness and hospitality of the staff and even the owners (Phally & Simon) are extremely outstanding. My friend and I loved their Mango Shake with Yogurt, perfect after a hot day exploring... More

Phally and her team made us feel very welcome during our 3 nights stay at Purple Mangosteen recently. There were 7 of us in 2 rooms. Both rooms, different sizes, were spacious enough for us. Rooms were clean. Bedding and linen were just perfect. Love the wifi. It was strong enough for me to hold several video calls with family... More

Love it love it love it (: A small boutique hotel that is super value for money. The rooms are great, with hot water shower and comfortable beds and pillows. Location is the biggest plus, tuck behind at the pub Street, you will be able to get to everywhere in the matter of minutes! Despite being right smack in the... More

I had a very nice stay in this NEW small hotel. I did not stay longer because this hotel actually was too expensive for my budget. The staff here is very nice. My room was super-nice and the hotel in super-clean in a very good location near Pub-street.
