“Great- better than the more expensive in Cambodia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I would definetly recommend this guest house. It was better than some of the more expensive hotels we stayed in during our time in Siem Reap. The rooms arent modern if thats what you're looking for but they are of a good condition and very big. Good air con system and bathroom- fantastic value for money. The hotel staff are so helpful and polite, it was a real pleasure to stay at this guesthouse and this is from a comparrisson of 3 other more expensive places we stayed in Cambodia. Dont expect 5 star because it isnt, but the descriptions and pictures shown on trip advisor are acurate and its worth a stay. I would visit again

HORRIBLE run away !! 
This hôtel is a total joke ! Don't believe photos on Internet ! 
First we arrived on this horrible and dark room, it seems that there is no windows....
Then the receptionist was very very cold, no smile, no information about the city and around, she directly ask us to pay cash like 5min after we enter the hotel....
Then the room ! Awful ! Old, ugly and dirty bed linen...windows let feels that you're in prison! Bathroom is so dark, there is no separation on the floor between shower and toilets....it's feels like you shower in the toilet directly...
The second day our room was not cleaned up, we ask for new towels they gave us towels with brown marks like if somebody just use it after toilets ! Disgusting,awful,incredible ! 
The hotel has 60 rooms, so it's really noisy at every time of the day...
There is a lot of staff incompetent ! They are lying around and you don't really know what are they're jobs...each time we asked someone they were laughing like kids, completely unprofessional ! 
The breakfast room is depressing, really dark with dirty tables we had to clean our own table every morning...
For breakfast there is a buffet....with something looking like a soup...some bread not fresh...the only things we were able to eat we're the fruits which were with fly...tea and coffe were cold...juice it's like a powder with water....
The pool area was crowded and dirty...
Wifi is not working ! You have to re enter password every five minutes ! 
Nothing good in this horrible place ! 
We booked our last night in an other hotel ! 
Run away !

Got to Okay 1 Villa after an alternative accommodation arrangement was unacceptable.
We were greeted in a very friendly manner and after a three night stay we were fully engaged by the staff.
The rooftop pool complex is stunning. Plenty of sun loafers, great drinks and food service. So good at the end of an active day. The staff up there are terrific and we had a lot of fun wit them.
Breakfasts ok, can be very busy. Found the wifi a tad frustrating. Kicked out regularly and you need to reconnect each time.
Overall a terrific little oasis from a busy and active day(s) in Siem Reap
Definitely recommend OKAY 1 VILLA

I am quite surprised to read the positive reviews as our experience was fairly average. When entering our room we were puzzled to find there was no shower, just a shower head. The phone completely didnt work (no batteries) and it took a long time to get the tv and fridge to work, as we found out they weren't plugged in, which seems an odd thing to do. The staff were sweet but things seemed a little confusing at times. What was great was the rooftop pool which was a good way to cool down at the end of the day, and also using the hotel's tuk-tuk driver for the temples as they take you around where you want and wait for you whilst you visit and take you to the next one. We had the same driver the whole time who was very friendly and nice. We also got a guide for the temples through the hotel, and the guide was also brilliant, so these were great.

Hotel is a bit far if you want to walk to town (pub street etc) but a tuk-tuk costs next to nothing. And the hotel have bikes for a day hire for just $2 which was also great fun to cycle to the temples.

We had a great stay in this hotel. The furnishings and interiors of this budget hotel is one of a kind. It is very clean. The rooms are spacious with the minimum amenities of the average traveler such as aircon, hot/cold shower, ref, tv, toiletries and hot pot.

Along with the accommodation is a free buffet breakfast. The breakfast was the same day in and day out and not much food choices. The food is usually fried egg, scrambled egg, fried rice, noodles, vegetable soup, bread and jam, brewed coffee, local fruits and juice. All in all, for the price it's a good stay.

The pool on the roof deck is also very nice and overlooks part of the city. Contact the hotel via email at least 3 days before your arrival to schedule a free airport shuttle.

We only stayed here for one night between travelling to Battambang and it really was a day or relaxation we needed! Large guesthouse spread over several floors we had a really large clean double room with private bathroom and TV for $20 a night. $10 each is fantastic for what we recieved and with the use of the roof top gorgeous pool area where we spent most of the day resting!! I tahd a lovely bar and restaurant and after travelling for a long time you need a day just to chill and with all this included I would say amazing value for money.

I am unsure what kind of people are rating this as terrible and poor! clearly haven't got a clue about really bad backpacker places. Location wise it is a 10 minute walk to main area of Siem Reap and down a side street but if you want to get a tuk tuk they are always some available outside.

I highly recommend and we booked through email with the hostel - REALLY ENJOYED STAYING HERE!!! :) :)

Although the hotel is down a small lane the hotel has a great entrance. The rooms were clean and the lunch quite good. Breakfast was a bit down with limited selection and cool eggs. Overall a good stay.
