We originally booked 3 nights at Side Walk and ended up staying for 6, it was a lovely place to have a bit of a break after a few months travelling SEA. The rooms were comfy, spacious and cleaned daily + 2 bottles of water which is always a bonus.. The location is great, being close to all the restaurants but not too close to pub street that you can't sleep at night. It's also not a bad distance from Angkor Wat maybe 7k 15/20 minute bike ride on the crazy roads of Siem Reap, it's an interesting experience. You can rent bikes across the street for $2-$5 depending on what bike you choose.
For us, the 5 stars are earned for the service. The manager, I forget his name but he's the one with no top on, is amazingly friendly, funny and helpful. On a few occasions he would be outside having BBQs with his friends and they invited us to join them, in fact they always invite everyone over so if you get the chance you should. You learn a lot more about the locals over the many beers they throw at you and also get some really yummy pork.. You might even get a dicounted tuk tuk ride the next day..
We were there at the beginning of the week long power cut in Siem Reap, unfortunately they were one of the many unfortunate hotels not to have a generator but we saw them handle the situation well, telling customers of hotels (even cheaper places) that had power, and offering substantial discounts for those that wanted to stay.
All in all, great, relaxed place to stay for those that want comfort at a reasonable price.
