This place is abolutly terrible. The rooms still dirty and the building is very old. Loudly around and the pictures from promotion facebook really old. The pool is closed for a while and there's a lot of pigeons dirts on the steps or flour. We moved out after 5 days. The staff is friendy but alone, the owner is in Germany.

The Golden Gecko Villa has only recently had a new owner. I lived in this property for 3 months and I am not really satisfied. At night it is often very loud, which is due to the numerous dogs on the street, but the guests also show very little consideration for other tenants at night. Unfortunately, the building is also very badly built, with thin walls so you can hear every word the neighbor says. It is really bad that you cannot open the balcony on the 2nd floor, as a lot of pigeons fly around there and sometimes even have their nests there. Therefore, the balcony cannot be used due to the amount of dirt. Little attention is paid to the concerns of the tenants. And some loud private pool partys with much alcohol in the night - still more important than guests who want to sleep and paid the monthly rental. Only the pool is very nicely laid out. The property is not suitable for long stays.

I was very lucky because a friend recommended Golden Dragon to me. I have been here well over ten years. I know the area well. This was my first time to get a room that was better than the recommendation. Since I have been here for so long I kknow very well that you cannot stop loud wedding music in Cambodia. Yes I hate that loudness but it is tradition and cannot be changed. It occurs seldom but really pisses off newbies. This place makes the best steak dinner in town. Try it!

The hotel is in a quite location, but a 10 min walk or a short tuk-tuk ride away from the pub street. I had free pick-up from the aiport, which was helpful for me. The hosts were very friendly & helped me with tours around the area. I enjoyed the garden & the pool area. Breakfast was very good. Room was spacious & clean.

The place to be for you to have a peaceful day! Am currently living in Siem Reap for couple of months now and golden gecko villa is the place i always go if i want to read my book without any noise and needless to say the soothing sound of the water feature of the pool is a plus.. You definitely have to try the pepper chicken with the avocado salad,it’s delectable! Also the coconut shake is palatable and refreshing.. Monida and her husband always made me feel like i was at home.. They are incredible! Hospitable and warm-hearted are the words for them 😉! Perfect place for my day-off! Gonna be back again and again! Thank you so much 👌🏽❤️
