Okay 1 Villa

Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at the Okay guesthouse in Phnom Penh so decided to stay here as it was easy to book. Lucky I did because Okay villa is beautiful. The staff are friendly and really helpful and fun as well. Hong runs the show and is a little legend. He made us feel welcome straight away and organised us some pretty good tours. The food was nice and that rooftop bar and pool were awesome! Not too far from busy pub street and the night markets as well. Rooms are affordable. Unfortunately there were a lot of rude guests that treated the staff poorly. Sad to see as we had no problems at all. Highly recommended and I look forward to staying there again!

We chose Okay because of its glowing reviews on TripAdvisor, we were sorely disappointed. The hotel itself is very attractive and the rooms are large and relatively clean. However it's really let down by mismanagement, the whole place is chaotic! When we arrived we were told the cheaper rooms that we wanted were full so we paid the extra for a larger room without complaint but later we saw a couple arrive who had pre-booked the cheaper rooms and were told the same thing. it seems to me that these cheaper rooms don't actually exist. The staff are very warm and friendly but beyond that its a disaster, you'll wait at least an hour for any food you order and its likely to not be what you ordered. We asked for laundry to be done and for the next 2 days got it back in separate piles and ultimately were missing items. We booked a bus with the receptionist to take us to the border, we were promised a sleeper bus with air con that would get us to the border as it opened, instead we were squeezed onto a tiny packed coach with broken air con that sat beside the road for half the night waiting for the border to open. We were willing to pay for the luxury of a nice bus so I don't understand why the receptionist was so insistent on this one unless it was for commission. I feel that there are much nicer places to stay in Siam Reap but there is the advantage that Okay is cheap and has a swimming pool.

Very affordable place! At 5 dollars Per night, we (a group of 9 students) couldn't ask for more. Nice rooms and an awesome rooftop swimming pool and bar and restaurant! Great service! And you can see the perfect sunrise and sunset views!

We enjoyed our recent stay here . The roof top pool and bar was a great spot to relax after a
day of sightseeing . The room we had was bright and spacious , although I do know that the
room sizes vary and one side of the hotel is overshadowed by the hotel next door - so if you are
not happy with your room request an alternative and I'm sure you will be happy. Our room was
room 114 and our sisters stayed opposite in room 101 - both were great.
Breakfast was simple but really great - lovely crispy bagette with eggs , tea/coffee , juice and fresh
fruit plate . If you would like the room serviced , just put the sign on the door .
We would be happy to stay again as it is great value for money .

Room Tip: Corner rooms on the first floor are great ,room 114 was large and bright .If not happy with your r...

We organised to stay at Okay 1 Villa in Siem Reap through Okay Guesthouse in Phnom Penh. They arranged a free pick up for us at the bus station so when we arrived we got straight in a tuk tuk and taken to the hotel. Okay 1 Villa has both a hotel and guesthouse. We stayed in the guesthouse but I don't know what the difference is between the two.

The guesthouse rooms were great. Big room with TV, fan and private bathroom for $10 a night. The hotel had a rooftop pool with a bar and restaurant where we spent most of our time. It was clean and comfortable.

The food was really good. Probably a little on the expensive side but it was really nice.

The staff were so friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we were happy and had everything we wanted. They arranged our tour to Angkor Wat, our bus journey and hotel pick up in Banlung. Couldn't complain at all about the staff.

It is in a very central location with easy walking distance to the shops. Would recommend this place as a base to explore Angkor Wat and other sights around Siem Reap.

What makes this place so great apart from the the beautiful building, huge comfy rooms, rooftop swimming pool and bar and constant hot water, are the staff. They are quite possibly the nicest, funniest, most helpful group of people I have ever met and I will never forget their kindness or their sense of humour.

Could not recommend this place more highly! Stayed at the Okay Guesthouse in Phnomh Penh and they offered us a discount if we stayed at the guesthouse in Siem Reap, I was so impressed with everything. Our room was gorgeous, airconditioning, rooms cleaned everyday. Staff were so friendly and helpful and arranged all our transport for us, picked us up when we arrived in Siem Reap. The hotel had its own tuktuk drivers so was so easy to get to pub street and we had a guy take us to Angkor and drive us about for the day which was great, for a small price (think it was $15 dollars between four of us). The rooftop pool was divine, was a nice way to relax and the food from the pool bar was great and reasonably priced. Was sad to have to leave!!
