Yes, yes a million times yes. I am not a wealthy traveller yet seem to be placed in abundant surroundings. They call me lucky. A friend recommended the Jasmine Garden Hotel to me while I was planning to come to Cambodia. I usually take a dorm room as I find them often empty apart from myself as is the case this time. So you have virtually a bigger room than most private rooms. So back to this place [sorry]. Here it is super clean here in the dorm. Nice comfortable bed w/sparkling clean good quality sheets. No trace of insects i.e. no bed bugs or cockroaches. [Thank God]. A nice bunk bed frame on top to prevent falling out of the top bunk. Nice size pillow clean and fresh [not moldy like most places]. And a nice cover sheet fresh as the morning air. Also each bed has a nice bath-size towel, some folded on the bed to resemble a flower. Each bunk, lower and upper has it's own outlet and tasteful light. So you can plug in your computer to use the FREE WIFI. Good connection [enough to watch a youtube movie or download from kickass torrents. The dorm is on the third floor so you get a good breeze coming in thru the large picture windows on the east and west sides of the room. And yes they have screens [no mosquitos or bugs can enter. what a blessing]. And a locked door. The dorm has AC! It's a brand new appliance that comes w/it's own remote that works. The view outside looking down upon the clean and freshly filtered swimming pool is of the quaint gardens on either side of the entrance way. Banana tree leaves and tropical plants are always relaxing to witness. Lounge chairs and umbrellas are on the east side of the pool. The hotel is off the main street just a one minute walk but that distance alone creates such a buffer that you can hardly hear the street. It is very quiet here. Tranquillo. The bathroom is large w/hot water and a nice shower head. Toilet flushes and two flushes to a tank. A hose w/good pressure by your toilet w/a nice nozzle. Sink and good size mirror. A door for privacy and an exhaust fan and light that work. As you walk out of the dorm there are two couches made of wicker and comfortable cushions. There is a balcony here that surrounds the whole floor so that you can walk around the entire floor. It is not that wide especially on the east side. The views are of the street to the west and north and south other guest houses poking up through the trees. Nothing is more than 4-5 stories here so you have an open sky also.
A free breakfast comes w/the room [dorm bed was $8/night]. You can pick one drink and one plate from the menu. I pick a nice local blend coffee w/milk for my drink. My plate is a nice plain omelette cooked nicely served on a plate w/silver. This is accompanied by a fruit plate consisting of cut fruit amounting to one large banana, an inch slice of pineapple cut so that there are no eyes, and a one inch section of papaya. Also a 10 inch baggette w/butter and jam comes with this.
The staff are very sweet. Mr. Kunn the owner is super sweet. And they offer all kinds of tours and tour packages. You can even rent out a cool Jeep painted in army green soft roof w/seating for six in the back. Arranging bus tickets pick ups and the lot are done here with a smile by Midori an elegant young woman Japanese by decent. Plenty of room to sit and enjoy your mealtime or hang out w/friends on the many rattan chairs w/cushions in the open air lobby. Bikes are available and so on. I like the place because it is clean and quiet and the people are sweet and graceful. I actually stay here all day long just because it feels so good. Why go anywhere else. They have a restaurant that makes fresh meals on order and when I came the first day to check out the place there was a young man, sitting poolside on a generous padded lounge chair having a plate of tasty looking fries and some deep-fried chicken. It looked really good. This place is really good and they even have another larger place out on the main road but I have yet to see it.
The main market area including Pub Street is only a ten minute walk and the Lucky Mall and supermarket is 5 minutes. Great location. I will always come here if ever again in Siem Reap.
