We stayed at the Jasmine Garden Villa for three days. We were in Siem Reap to visit Angkor Wat and Jasmine Garden was a great place to stay. It is a guesthouse located about a 5-7 minute walk away from central Siem Reap. The road is mostly dirt and gets dark at night. There is also quite a bit of motorcycle and car traffic on it. This doesn’t differentiate it from most roads in Siem Reap, but because it is dark, one should be careful walking at night.
The staff at Jasmine Garden Villa was lovely and really helpful when we needed anything. The prices they offered for guides for the day at Angkor Wat were competitive and they were able to arrange everything. The restaurant at the guest house has good food (and we got free breakfast with our rate) but the service is quite slow. Don’t eat there if you are in a rush! Again, though, we found this to be pretty common in Siem Reap.
Our room was spacious and nicely furnished. The walls were painted brightly and everything was clean. The bathroom is a little rougher though. The shower is just a spout from the wall, so don’t leave anything in the bathroom that you mind getting wet. The building itself is also really beautiful, with carved wooden railings, bright colors, and a balcony. There is also free internet in the lobby.
We really liked it here and would recommend it, but as it is a newer property some of the service was also rough. We had booked a double bed but there wasn’t one available when we got there, so we got a room with two single beds and had to switch rooms for the second night. There weren’t any towels in or soap in the room either and we had to ask for both. A couple of times our power went out and the staff had to reset it. The staff was wonderful about helping us and we imagine that once they are in business longer, some of these things will smooth out.
