My friend and I were taken here by our driver and we looked at the room and decided it was fine so decided to stay here for a few days in Siem Reap.
First impression is that it's nothing special, but there is something about it that we really liked. There is a nice homely feel with the communal area overlooking the streets, with cushions on the floor to lounge on and food menus if you get hungry.
Our room was fine and we were happy with it, although it would have been nice to have a window and some natural light. They should also think about getting some nice soft pillows instead of rocks...
Staff in the guesthouse were very helpful - we kept extending our stay because we spent so long trying to see Angkor Wat. They let us borrow a couple of bikes and we cycled to the temples which is quite far, but also a great way to see the countryside. The staff at the guesthouse also helped us book onward travel to Battambang. Someone was always there when we needed them which was great.
The free computer in the lounging area was handy and we were able to upload our pictures to facebook (which took ages), leaving are memory cards free for the temple photos! They even played a movie while we sat there being annoyed at the computer.
Location wise, it is in a great position for you to explore Siem Reap. I definitely recommend this place for friendly service and a homely vibe.
