We got an amazing deal through Agoda ($17) for the 1 night we were at the hotel.
Room at the top of the stairs, but with no noise problems. Buffet in the morning wasn't the greatest, but served its purpose. I would never recommend eating hotel breakfasts in Asia, but sometimes it's too convenient to pass up.
The hotel let us use a room to shower even after we had checked out (didn't want to get on a plane after 7 hours at Angkor)
Our Tuk Tuk driver was Mr. Kun. He who picked us up at the airport and than was our man for the 2 days. He was great. Super friendly, good english, and unlike most tour people, understood when we told him we wanted local food. Showed us a very "local" place to eat (maybe not the best, but definitely local), and took us for dessert on our way out of town, which was great! You can totally ask for Tuk Tuk drivers by name. So ask for Mr. Kun.
No complaints about the room. Which was big, had good water pressure and temperature, and working non-drippy air conditioning. Oh wait, only complaint was the super hard and thick pillows. But pillows are definitely subjective... I just don't like them so thick and hard. Got some towels and that did the trick.
The hotel is definitely on a less busy street, but closer to the action than a lot of the giant expensive looking hotels.
