Excellent location, room and facilities. Despite the absence of breakfast, there are two bakeries around, and it's very easy to have it before visit city or temples. It's in the middle of nightlife, like night market, restaurants, etc. At night, it's a little bit noisy because the nightclubs around, but it's not annoying.

Our stay here was excellent! After several days in backpacker hostels with cramped bathrooms, thin sheets and flat pillows, we were beyond relieved and excited to finally stay at a comfortable and beautiful room with real comforters, fluffy pillows and a spacious bathroom! The holy grail! It was centrally located and is within walking distance of everything so there will... More

Found this place based on a friend's recommendation and stayed for 3 days in June. The rooms were clean and surprisingly sleek. The hotel staff were incredibly helpful and employee their own, totally trustworthy, Tuk Tuk drivers - they even had one pick us up from the airport for free. Unlike some of the other reviewers, we had no problems... More

If you want a place that's right where the action is, with a nice room, and the best staff ever - look no further. Sokohn at the front desk and the rest will take care of you with a big smile. Sokohn even walked me to the bike rental place under the noon sun just to make sure I get... More

We chose the Purple Mangosteen to be close to the center of Siem Reap and it was excellent for that purpose. The property is well managed, ownership is attentive and responsive, the room was perfectly clean every day, the staff was delightful and the location - for proximity to the heart of town - was excellent. The only reason their... More

The staff was friendly and delightful. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was in the heart of Siem Reap's tourist district. And the rooftop terrace was a great place to watch the sun set. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. If you're looking for a quiet room away from city noise, this is not the place for you....

Nice courteous staff and great tuk-tuk driver (Saru) recommended who gave us free airport pick up (as long as you use the same person as your temple driver). Not technically a B&B though as no breakfast is available at all which was a surprise and a down side to the central location is the background beats from the nearby bars... More

First time in Siem Reap and the the purple Mango was a great place. The owner paulie was so very kind and helpful and I wish we stayed longer as she made us very welcome. The bars can be heard at night but not enough to keep you awake, she even told us they have double windows now to help... More

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
