“Exceeded all expectations, and then some.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2009

We pre-booked for 5 nights (an absolute must!) after seeking advice of a good place to stay in SR with a pool for our 8yr old son. The hotel itself was charming (rooms spacious and nice little details - loved the outside baths/showers), and the food delicious (some of the best we ate on our entire holiday), but it is the people that make a place. I'm not listing them as they know who they are and I've already sent a personal email, but we cannot speak highly enough of their friendliness, attentiveness, professionalism and kindness, which went way beyond just 'service'. Also had the opportunity to stay in the Boutique Hotel and this is also in the same mold. It is also in an excellent and very quiet location. We wish Dirk and his team continued good luck

Wonderful hotel. Not only beautifully designed but staff were incredibly knowledgable, helpful, and sweet. Everything went according to plan and we couldn't have been happier (unless we were still there).

This hotel had the friendliest, most gracious staff I have ever met. They made our stay very memorable. The accommodations were wonderful - outside bathtub (and indoor shower), wonderful food, and a swimming pool with salt water. I loved the way the water felt swimming in the pool.
The staff definitely make this a remarkable experience - knowledgeable, helpful, and always warm and welcoming. They arranged our trips to Angkor Wat and the Floating Village, and chose drivers and guides who were equally gracious and competent. I am already saving up my money to come back!

We booked the Golden Banana based on other people's reviews. We were not disappointed. They made our time in Siem Reap very enjoyable. Arranging to be picked-up at the airport and have a tour guide for the temples available as soon as we arrived.

The rooms are spotless and having a pool to relax in after climbing around the temples was very much appreciated.

They offer a very simple but good breakfast that was included.

And to top it off, the Golden Banana is very convenient (about a 5 minute walk) to the busy pub streets. So you are close to places to eat and bars, but far enough for it to be quiet.

It was a perfect stay!!!!

We had a great stay at The Golden Banana. We had a lovely 'attic room' that was up some steep steps but the room was really individual and had a great tall bed. I had to take a run up just to get on it!
The pool/food/service was excellent. I would definitely go back.

we stayed for 3 nights at this hotel, the boutique hotel for 2 nights and the resort for 1 night. there is also a B & B which are all centrally connected. From the time we arrived we were greeted with friendly smiling staff that were never too busy to help. They organised the tours to Ankor Wat and other temples. The rooms were immaculate and the breakfast which was included was first rate. A great place to stay.
