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!

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.

Excellent location very close to pub street. The hotel itself is more of a converted hostel but very clean and the staff were very friendly. Excellent place to spend one or two nights with friends who like to party.

This is probably the best hotel we could've gotten in Siem reap, its in the heart of the city - walking distance to all cool spots in town. The rooms are clean, cozy with good wifi and really really cool bathroom! Wouldn't chose different place if I could!

An awesome place to stay. We stayed in the family room which was clean and has a lovely outlook. Really friendly and helpful staff made for an enjoyable stay. The roof top bar and lemongrass mojito are not to be missed. Good location close to restaurants and shopping. A little bit of noise but nothing problematic. Windy staircase is a... More

Just popped in here for some cocktails on our first night in siem reap and received friendly service and delicious drinks! We then ordered some fresh spring rolls and had a few rounds of connect 4! A very chilled spot to sit and watch the world go by or play board games. We were drawn back by the lemongrass mojitos... More
