I loved, loved LOVED my stay at Golden Butterfly Villa, and wish that my stay had not been so short! We arrived late at night, having taken the bus in from HCMC, and were still treated like royalty upon arrival, with cool towels and welcome drinks. Everyone was all smiles checking us in, bringing us and our bags up to a gorgeous room with a balcony, and pre-chilled for our arrival! And imagine that, through a series of unfortunate events, we managed to lock ourselves IN OUR ROOM. A quick call to reception, and someone was sent up immediately, even making their way through an adjoining room's shared balcony to rescue us! Even though they DID manage to unlock the door, they offered us ANOTHER room(with a working lock!) for the remainder of our stay. Both rooms had a big balcony, a roomy washroom with excellent shower, storage for luggage and clothing. There was a TV, mini-fridge for cold beverages and DVD player with Angkor Wat-themed DVDs. One note on the fridge: the room's electricity turns off when you remove your key-card from the slot, effectively shutting off the fridge too. Something to keep in mind if you have anything other than water in there that needs to stay cold. The breakfasts were delicious - the scrambled eggs creamy and perfectly-seasoned, the baguette tender and with great chew. I loved the coffee and finger bananas available at the bar area, too. We chose to rent bicycles through the hotel, and they took car of everything, even letting us store the bikes in the hotel parking overnight, as we had rented 2 days. Every time we rode out, or returned for a big day of biking, we were greeted with refreshing cool towels and chilled bottles of water, which is such a special touch, a great attention to detail - the staff were really looking out for our comfort and well-being, and it showed. I don't understand why so many people complain about the neighboring elementary school being noisy - I LOVED sitting out on the balcony, watching al the children line up for their day of learning, listening to the head teacher on the PA system talking to the kids, trying to guess at what she was saying! It was a beautiful look at life outside of the tourism bubble, and I thought is made for a very quaint wake-up call! Everything up to our ride to airport was perfect, and as we sat in the dining room, under the cool breeze of the fans, I really didn't want my time at the Golden Butterfly Villa to be over. THAT'S when you know you've had an amazing experience.…
Highly recommend place. I had my flat at night and they allowed me a late check-out untill it was time to go to the airport. They handled every tour with a reasonable price. Everyday they received me with a glass of ice tea and wet towels to clean yourself. And everything for FREE.
All the staff are accomodating and room is clean! He tour guide mr chong and tuktuk driver mr sang were great!!! Best part is it comes with free massage too. I also love that the manager mr richard is personalized on his service, always accomodating. I recommend for couples and solo travellers!
I must say this is one of the nicest little hotels I have ever stayed at. I'll try not to just say the same things in other reviews. One thing is staff offer to arrange tours etc but are really not pushy about it, I wish I had used them more as yuk yuk drivers tend to be aggressive and will keep trying to take you around. The area of hotel is nice to explore walking. Also food and drink here is worth mention. Breakfast was a delicious omelet with a bread roll melt in your mouth. Food generally is excellent in Cambodia much better than Thailand overall. And room service was good and fair price. Anyway staff were lovely and no complaints.
Location is perfect, just 5 mins walk to Pub Street. Staff here are very nice, helpful. And allow late check out. Room are clean and comfortable. highly recommended. Pick up service from airport is provided by the hotel with Tuk Tuk. Welcome drink and snack is offered. Packed breakfast is provided on the day of sun rise trip. Quality is good. Price is really reasonable. Fan and air- conditioner are equipped in the room. In February, I only Turn on the fan at night. It is comfortable enough. Breakfast is included everyday. Free massage for 60 mins is offered. However, my itinerary is too packed, I can’t arrange the massage in my trip. Next time, I must try the massage offered. Location is good for visiting Angkor Temple, it takes only 15 mins by Tuk Tuk.
