OVERVIEW: All the reviews of Golden Butterfly Villa are true and then some. This is a fantastic stay at an amazing, incredible price. Though I typically have a lot to write in each category - everything here was off the charts great in every aspect so this will be a shorter review. I will most definitely stay here again.
LOCATION: GBV has a great location in the heart of Siem Reap. It is close enough to Pub Street to walk off your drinks or dinner. It is tucked away from the main road so you don't suffer from street traffic noise. Perfect.
SERVICE: WOW! As soon as you walk in, you get frozen towels and a drink and snack. The staff goes out of their way to learn your name and ask you about your day's adventures. If you like, they will set up excursions for your as soon as you arrive. Takea is very friendly and will get you dialed in for any tour or activity you desire. Everyone is so gracious - from the restaurant servers to the bell boys, you feel at home and taken care of. Incredibly, you get a free welcome massage which is fantastic! If you arrive later in the day, the staff will be anxious to get your tour for the next day booked. We were hot, tired and a little overwhelmed with having to make decisions about our Angkor Wat tour as soon as we walked in the door. We later learned that the guides book up quickly - and the hotel will provide a picnic snack for your day which has to be ordered by 6PM. If they are rushing you to make a decision about your next-day's tours - it's for a reason!
ROOMS: Our room was cozy and beautifully decorated. Comfy beds, beautiful linens, TV, mini-bar, refrigerator, everything we needed. Bathroom was petite but the shower was large and water pressure was fantastic. Complimentary waters every day. Beautiful windows and a cute balcony. We loved our little room.
RESTAURANT: Food and service was top-notch. The breakfast portions were huge so consider sharing if you are light eaters. Coffee, tea, water are complimentary and available 24/7. Bar was fine.
As for the rest, everything was FANTASTIC! We absolutely adored our stay with Takea and staff. The hotel is beautiful and the people are amazing. Have a wonderful stay at GBV. We loved it!!!!
