“Perfect stay, perfect staff, fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

The best place we've stayed in our Southeast Asia trip.
It is a beautiful and charming place, located on a walkable distance from Pub Street and the Central Market. It has the warmest staff on earth. Prepare yourself to be very well treated all the time. The rooms are spacious, with great quality of sleeping. Staying close to the pool may be bothering; avoid if you can. You receive a lot of amenities on the room and in the check-in. The welcome drink is delicious! The breakfast is also good, but has some limitations on western food. But this happens everywhere in Asia. We also received a complimentary lunch, which was an great khmer barbecue. The pool is very nice, also, with a warm water... It's very nice to relax after a busy day in Angkor Wat... Everybody is smiling there!! I'll sure be back!

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms near the pool. May be a little noisy.

Found this on Trip Advisor, it had good reviews and a package for 4 nights including a massage, picnic lunch, welcome drinks, pickup & dropoff, so we decided to book here as it was the last place we stayed before heading home and after 4 weeks of travelling, we wanted a bit more comfort. The Golden Temple didn't disappont, what a beautiful little hotel it is! On the map it looked a bit of a walk to get to things which we thought was ok, but actually it took only 10 mins or so to walk to Pub Street and all the markets (or take a tuk tuk for $1) so the location is perfect. The staff are lovely, front desk staff met us when we arrived with cold towels and drinks, and the same when we came back after a day exploring the temples. They were very helpful when I twisted my ankle exploring a temple and hobbled back in, they rushed to help me sit down, brought cold towels and a drink, then arranged bags of ice for it. All the staff speak English to some degree and are always trying to practice by speaking to you and asking questions. The colours of the hotel are vibrant with lots of small touches like lanterns, mirrors, pot plants and statues tucked away in every nook and cranny. Gorgeous pool with deck chairs, a couple of private deck areas and also a few hammocks tucked in a corner. Bit noisy when sitting around the pool during the day as there is construction going on across the road and lots of trucks going back and forth. Loved the design of the room, very spacious and luxurious, was just what we needed at the end of 4 weeks of travelling. Super comfy bed, great bathroom with lots of space, nice large safe (enough to hold small laptop or tablet computer), kettle and plenty of tea and coffee, bathrobes & footwear, separate lounge and desk. Plenty of power points available to charge electronic equipment or cameras etc. Flat screen TV and DVD player with 2 DVD’s to watch – The Killing Fields and a documentary about Angkor Wat, which were both very good to watch. They also have a few tuk tuk drivers available for short trips or temple tours, you will generally get the same one the entire stay so you can get to know them quite well as again their English is very good. Would highly recommend this hotel, if we come back to Siem Reap, this would definitely be the place I’d stay again.

What a great little hotel. We have stayed in 100's of hotels and this really was the most friendly. The staff were absolutely great, every time we went to the lobby they were welcoming us back, they made a point of learning our names, wanting to know where we had been and always smiling. They were fantastic. The food is great and the hotel very clean. The only minor downside was at times there were not enough sun beds around the pool but I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed here for the first days of our Cambodia trip and to be honest it set the bar very very high. From the welcome to the goodbye for Anna and her team nothing was too much trouble. Trips, cars and tuk tuk all organised in a flash. All with a graciousness that many hotels could learn from. The food was great and the cooking class very informative and importantly fun. Clean and pretty air conditioned rooms kept well and in a very convenient location for town. We heartily recommend this excellent hotel.

great welcome, staff very good, room , very clean and tidy, food, well not worth eating out, just as easy to eat at hotel as food just as cheap, and very good, Could not fault hotel whilst we were there, well worth the money, have paid more for other hotels which were not half as good. cant praise the staff enough.

Room Tip: try and get a room facing the pool, the other side faces a hostel next door, which over look balcony...

Our family recently visited the wonderful city of Siem Reap, Cambodia. While there, we had the pleasure of staying at the Golden Temple Hotel. It was a wonderful experience! The hotel staff were amazing. After the first day, the staff knew all of our names and greeted us every time they saw us. They were wonderful with my kids as well. My son routinely ran down to the lobby to ask one of the wonderful girls how to eat some of the local fruit that they left in our room. They made transportation arrangements for us and were always waiting in the lobby with a cold towel when we returned. The restaurant was wonderful and even though we tried many of the restaurants around town, we could have easily eaten every meal in the hotel restaurant. The complimentary breakfast each day was a great way to start the day! The hotel massages were wonderful and I LOVED the cooking class. Lounging by the beautiful pool was also a real pleasure!
We had a few hiccups with our rooms (A/C repair, loss of water) but the staff was always very quick to fix any problem we had and offered us their sincere apology along with some goodies in our room to make up for it. Even with the trouble, I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again if we are ever back in Siem Reap! Thank you Golden Temple Hotel for making our trip truely memorable!!!!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms were wonderful but you can't go wrong with a pool view!

My wife and I stayed here and loved it. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, with good air conditioning, which is very much needed in Siem Reap in April. The breakfasts were really nice with a good choice of fruit, breads and Asian and Western hot options. The lunch was also good and reasonably priced.The staff were the best bit though, they were also so wonderfully friendly and helpful, and we really looked forward to being greeted with a warm smile and cold towel each time we got back to the hotel. The only negative i guess was the shower could have been more powerful and higher on the wall, but this is a pretty minor point, as overall we loved our stay here.
