I normally don't write reviews, but I feel that the staff at the Bunwin deserve some praise:
My friends and I traveled to Cambodia in April 2013, and Siem Reap/Angkor Wat was our last destination. The Bunwin's extremely gracious staff, all-inclusive transportation services and the clean and beautiful accommodations made our stay in Siem Reap especially memorable.
Like most travelers, we read the reviews on Tripadvisor before booking a room at the Bunwin and we understood that it wasn't as close to the center of the city as some other hotels. But we knew we would be wiped out by the end of this trip, and figured that the complimentary tuk tuk services around town and bus station/airport transfers would be well worth it. And we were right. Having a sort of personal chauffeur makes all the difference in the world, especially after days of flagging down and haggling with tuk tuk drivers all over Cambodia (it's exhausting!). Plus, the city is just a few minutes away on smooth pavement (the alley and driveway into the hotel is not paved, however).
The staff really goes out of the way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Our flight out of Siem Reap was in the evening, and the staff was generous enough to let us occupy the room until our flight. I know late check-outs are contingent on room availability, but they were super accommodating. When the flight got delayed another hour or so, they were understanding and made proper arrangements for our limo to the airport.
PS. We loved having the massage therapists from the Bunwin's sister hotel, Moon Boutique Hotel visit us in our room at the Bunwin. The massage comes to you AND you get a good discount! We later returned to Moon Boutique Hotel in the city and got another massage there with the Bunwin discount as well.
PPS. Book a sunrise trip to Angkor Wat with the hotel. The staff will pack you a cute breakfast to go. Make sure you get a mobile phone from the front desk and the number of your tour guide/driver so you can find him easily between temple-hopping.
