3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

The hotel was ok. The swimmingpool also good but there were no enought space outside, no chairs or anything. The towels were really old and nasty.
The breakfast was ok.
The room was good, but smell sometimes.
We find a big spider (the size of my hand) in the courtain next to the bed... Really scary!
The staff really nice but they dont speak too much english so it was a little bit hard sometimes to ask for something...

Other than a not so great wifi connection, this guesthouse was fantastic- especially for it's price. There is a small but sufficient pool down stairs, it's a short walk from pub street and the Buffet breakfast was great- just make sure you get in earlier rather than later. Our rooms were cool and quiet and the staff were very accommodating

I've not stayed in Cambodia / or a budget guest house before so had very little to compare it to. First impressions, very kitch and homely. Was impressed with the free airport pick up and drop off, free coffee in reception, wifi, stand alone computers and the place was gorgeously decorated. Big wooden stairs, black and white tiled floors, great pool area ( compact but incredibly handy) lovely little walkway up to the hotel ( they were building it as we were there).

We got our room 204 but it was weirdly situated and had no windows!! i tell a lie it had a window but it looked out onto a corridor - so we had to keep the curtains shut to stop people looking in. So i gathered this is what you got with budget, it had a fridge tv air con shower and hot water ( we had no problems with that) but after two days it did my head in not having a window because we had no idea if it was dark or raining ( which it was!) so we asked to be moved. Thankfully we got offered the vip suite on the top floor for an extra $10 for 2 nights which was fine by me. The vip suite was lovely! lots of space, windows and a brand new tiled bathroom and bath. So i really cant complain!
Its in a great location, a little bit out of the way of all the noise but only a 2 minute walk back to the night market and pub street.
Staff were really friendly and helpful - we also get free bike hire so we took advantage of that and cycled around siem reap on the first day.
Breakfast was simple tried to cater for most nationalities, fruit, tea, coffee, toast , omelettes , rice etc.
The lunch and snacks were top notch, had the spring rolls and stir fried chicken and ginger - very good value for money, and the happy hour was a bonus as it lasted from 12 - 10pm!
The pool area got really busy in the afternoons after everybody was back from their temples tours!
Atmosphere was really chill and i would go back there tomorrow.

Room Tip: Maybe not 204 if you like natural sunlight and windows! the 4 vip rooms look out over the pool.

I stayed here for 2 nights with some friends in Family Room. The room is not big as I expected, but it's okay. On my second day, the air con leaked and flooded the floor. The staff helped with a mop. He said that he'll fix it tomorrow when we checked out. The hotel's location is great. Near to Pub Street, Old Market and Night Market. The breakfast was the same during my stay. But we had a very delicious dinner. Tanei's Cambodian chicken curry and Khmer fish sour soup are highly recommended. The staffs were helpul, they helped me to book sleeper bus tickets to Phnom Penh, and they picked us up to the bus shelter by tuk-tuk for free. Their pool is an oasis in Siem Reap's hot midday. Moreover, it values for money.

One of the best guesthouse in siem Reap and in Cambodia : Clean, nice location and great staff. We met friends who paid more in Siem Reap without the same service (no pool, far from pubstreet and cold water in the bathroom).
And they pick you up at the airport!!!
Breakfast is good and fresh!
For lunch or dinner, don't hesitate on going downtown. Tanei's restaurant is not the best asset of the guesthouse !!!

The Tanei was a comfortable hotel with a good pool area, nice buffet breakfast, free wifi and a reasonable restaurant. Wifi was not good on the top floor room. Room/bed was comfortable, shower was good and the staff were helpful at all times. The airport pickup and drop off were welcome bonuses.

Room Tip: Our room was on top floor facing the street. It was away from the noise of the pool and the street...

I'll keep it simple and list what I saw as its low/high points. We spent 5 nights here.

-Bed was hard as a rock; pillows were malleable cardboard (i.e., a bit softer).
-They are installing a new walkway and pond. Work starts at 7am so don't plan on sleeping in if you're there in the next 2 weeks or so. Lots of hammering and construction worker conversation.
-The lights in the room were the equivalent of 40 watt bulbs. Not nearly enough illumination to see properly.
-Bathroom lighting was even worse.
-They gave me my room key just by me walking up and saying my room number -- even though the clerk had never seen me before. Not great on the security front.
-Painting of teenage girl in see-through top (hanging on bedroom wall) was disconcerting.
-Floor drain in shower too slow to keep up with water flow -- entire bathroom flooded.
-Hot water took minutes to arrive.
-Towels and sheets changed every day -- so much for water conservation.
-Breakfast is boring for so many days; breakfast is fine for a shorter visit (eggs, toast, pasta, fruit).
-Coffee was some of the worst I've ever had -- I switched to instant after the 2nd morning proved as bad as the first.
-Restaurant is slightly more expensive than the others in the area. Meals I had weren't as good as equivalent meals elsewhere.
-Refrigerator barely worked at the coldest setting -- water put in the freezer section overnight was nice and cold by morning but never froze. Not that I wanted it to, but that gives you an idea how well it functioned.
-Laundry is twice the price as everywhere else in town ($2 per kg versus $1 everywhere else -- I got lazy and had them do it).
-Connecting to their internet service was hit or miss. Got booted off every few minutes.
-No shelves or chest of drawers for storing clothes. Sucks when you're in one place for 5 days.
-Checkout was a pain. Security guard was sent to track down a tuk-tuk even though one had been promised for our early morning departure -- the driver spoke no English and even with a business card with the address of where we were going couldn't find it without me directing him...to the main road to Angkor Wat. This wasn't the same guy who played tour guide for us during our stay -- no complaints about him.

-They arranged a tuk-tuk driver for our touristy stuff. Convenient, no-haggle price, nice guy with functional English. Although every hotel offers this so not a big deal.
-It's cheap.
-A/C worked very well.
-Pool and hot tub.
-Short walk to markets, bars, restaurants.

If you're going to be in Siem Reap when hotels are not likely to be sold out you're better off NOT making a reservation for your entire visit. That way if you get stuck in a less than great hotel like this one you'll be able to move without having to pay for cancelling the remainder of your reservation. There are tons to choose from in this price range.

Room Tip: Ask to see it first -- perhaps some of them have decent lighting and floor drains that work.
