Location wise, it is next to pub street and in walking distance with the night market so it is very convenient. Good customer service. And the best part of it all is that their rooms have ample power points with built-in international power plug!

This hotel is brilliant.The staff are so friendly and helpful. They even let me have my old room after check out to relax and wait for my flight. It can be a little noisy sometimes, but it didn't bother me. The room was really clean, and the bed very comfortable. I'd stay here again.

Excellent location very close to pub street. The hotel itself is more of a converted hostel but very clean and the staff were very friendly. Excellent place to spend one or two nights with friends who like to party.

This is probably the best hotel we could've gotten in Siem reap, its in the heart of the city - walking distance to all cool spots in town. The rooms are clean, cozy with good wifi and really really cool bathroom! Wouldn't chose different place if I could!

Just popped in here for some cocktails on our first night in siem reap and received friendly service and delicious drinks! We then ordered some fresh spring rolls and had a few rounds of connect 4! A very chilled spot to sit and watch the world go by or play board games. We were drawn back by the lemongrass mojitos...

We only had drinks here, but they were actually great. The lemongrass mojito was especially tasty. Friendly staff and clean toilet facilities. Good place to have drinks with the right spirits measurements, we actually went twice the same day.

We had the most wonderful experience at Purple Mangosteen. The staff was the highlight. The rooms perfectly clean and well-appointed. Only slight problem: nightclub noise but nothing ear plugs can't fix. Will definitely stay here again.
