I always feel welcome when I'm here! The staff is the most amazing people I've ever met. Whatever you need, they help you out. The food is delicious and the drinks are good and very affordable! It's easy to get around and also to all the tourist attractions thanks to the tuk tuk drivers. Can't wait to go back :)

We stayed for 3 nights. The staff was very friendly, rooms were clean and had everything we needed. They don't have a pool, but the hotels next to it does so that's not a problem. The food was good. The morning we went to Angkor Wat they even gave us breakfast to go. Perfect!
