My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in Les Bambous when we visited Siem Reap. The grounds are really beautiful and the pool really peaceful, making the hotel a perfect place to come back to after a long day of visiting temples.
The owners are a French family who were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay, as were the staff.
Breakfast was absolutely delicious (the best we've had on our 2 month trip so far), with fresh baguette and yogurt & fruit or eggs included in the price. Finally, we had fried eggs that were runny instead of being overcooked like everywhere else in Asia!
However, there were a few niggles that prevent us from giving this a 5 star review. First is the distance from town. The hotel is about 3km away from central Siem Reap, which means you will be forking out $4-6 for each round trip you take to go out. As there really isn't anything around the hotel, you'll find yourself taking at least one tuk tuk trip a day, which adds up after a few days.
Also, while the room and bathroom were both spacious and clean, I can't say they were really 'boutique' in any way. Furnishings were relatively minimal and the bathroom was very basic, with a door that didn't close. We paid $28 a night instead of $70 thanks to a discount on Agoda, which was good value. However, if we had paid full price and expected a real boutique hotel, we would have been a bit disappointed.
Overall though, our stay was very positive and we wish Francois and his family good luck with the business!
