“A Lovely Place in the Heart of the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

I simply loved Golden Banana Resort! I visited with my friends and family during a tour of South East Asia. Upon returning from a long day of touring, it felt like we were returning home! The resort is clean and beautiful. The wait staff was friendly and eager to serve. The rooms were clean and inviting. The management was very responsive to all our needs. We just loved it. The closeness to the night market was also a plus.

I would not hesitate to recommend Golden Banana to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: A first floor room, near the pool and was great!

Visited Cambodia- Siem Reap with my wife. We got really good reviews for this property on net, so we booked it. Booking experience was also really wonder full. All our queries and doubts were answered very promptly. Let me make it clear at the first instance that though it is a Gay Friendly Resort, it is perfectly fine for straight couples as well. A very decent place.
Rooms -
We stayed in the Delux Villa. The room was great. It had 2 floors and the top floor we had a semi covered balcony and open air tub / bath area. Excellently kept room with all necessary aminities.

Swimming Pool -
As it was rainy season, the pool was not all that clear. But still the hotel made great effort to keep it clean and clear. We did not use it, but in summers it can be a real relaxing experience.

Staff & Service -
Just one word to describe. EXCELLENT. The staff is very friendly and helping. All our requests were met very promptly. The arrangements for sight seeing, guide, bus tickets were made very promptly. I thank all you guys and gals for your excellent hospitality.

Location -
The location is great. The hotel is on a side lane from the main road, but trust me it worth it. Very safe, as per our experience to roam around even in night. Its very close to the Old Market (5 min walking) and the Pub Street where all the eateries and bars are (5.5 min walking).

Food -
Food was good. Though not a very elaborate menu. Breakfast was basis. This is one area where they can improve a little. As me and my wife both are Pure Vegetarians, we found it a little difficult to order food. Really very less choice for Veg. person. Hope they take some note of this and improve. But as I mentioned the eateries are so nearby we did not face any problem. There are many Indian restaurants nearby. so this should not be the deciding factor for any traveler.

Over All -
Simply Great. Will definitely recommend it to one and all.

Golden Banana Boutique Resort gives you almost everything you dreamed about. A nice hotel, a good and very friendly staff and a unique environment. The perfect place for visiting the tempels. The hotel adviced us James Din as our guide and taxi & tuktuk driver. A perfect match. A name to remember.

We definitely stay at GB again if we travel Siem Reap. I highly recommend GB resort to you.

If you want to be in the middle of everything but still be able to go and have a good night sleep in a room with no noise, this is the place to go to!! Recommended to us by local expats from Cambodia but also from friends in Vietnam, who always stay at this hotel.
Book beforehand as often fully booked. They also had the best recommendations for dinners and organised the Angkor temples visit for us with our own tuk tuk.
Highly recommended! Enjoy Seam Reap :)

I can't fault anything about the Golden Banana Boutique Resort. The staff were amazing, their service was impeccable. It was clean, fantastic facilities, always transport handy, the swimming pool was beautiful, bath on the balcony was gorgeous and the therapies were well worth te pennies! I would happily come back to Siem Reap and stay here again and again.

Room Tip: Take a bath on the balcony and relax after a hard day of climbing temples!
