This little bundle of tranquility, nestled down a nondescript side road is surely one of the highlights of any Cambodian experience. High praise for the Golden Mango Inn ... Most of which is reserved for the genuinely loveable staff, who would be able to get that 'grumpy cat' to flash it's pearly whites.
Details that would appear to nock the place down a peg are cleverly navigated by the thoughtful owners who - unlike many places in the region - put the comfort of their guests at the top of their agenda. ie. the location isn't very central but free 'into-town tuk tuk services' alleviate some of the hassle.
One morning a pre-arranged driver failed to show for a 5am sunrise tour of Angkor Wat - staff, concerned by our frustration, organised an replacement. He arrived - still with sleep in his eyes - within 10 minutes and accepted the discounted rate agreed with the previous no-show driver.
Positives: staff staff staff. The rooms are well maintained (if a little lacklustre) and very big. Swimming pool is cute and the feature adds character. Atmosphere is relaxed. Free rides into town. Tours / guides from here are reliable and good value. Decent wifi.
Negatives: little far from town. Breakfast (and food generally) isn't top-notch, but still acceptable. Construction work was being carried out next door so was some noise - but nothing overpowering. Not the cheapest option and not a choice for people looking to socialise within the hotel.
All in all, what are you waiting for?
