The hotel location is quite good in walking distance to the palace and some wats. There are always tuk-tuks hanging around to cart you wherever you want to go, but it pays off to walk a couple of meters down to the next intersection to get a cheaper rate (especially for day tours to the kiliing fields) since the hotel rate is USD25 and the drivers in front know that.
The rooms are Ok, if a bit worn. You have a nice seating area with fans on every floor. The downside is that the walls are paper-thin and you can here everything around you. The problem, at least for me, was not so much the street noice (practically none later at night) but the other guests slamming doors watching TV, etc. I was woken up a couple of times at night by guests coming back from one party or another and they were not especially noisy or anything.
The pool is nice, if a bit small, but good for a dip after a hot and sweat day of sightseeing.
The breakfast is allright, even though the selection could be better. The café, where the breakfast is served is very small but we never had trouble finding seats or anything. Might be a different story when the hotel is fully booked, We had dinner brought up to the seating area on our floor once and found it very good.
The staff is very nice and helpfull.
What I didn't like to much were quite a few gentlemen staying there with their cambodian girlfriends. Not that they misbehaved or anything, it just leaves a bit of an aftertaste for me. Might have been true love, though.
