First, there is Lim, one of the nicest, more competent and real hotel clerks I have ever encountered. She made the stay worthwhile. Then, there is the location, close to downtown (a fast tuk tuk or bike ride away) but far from the noise. My room was clean, lovely, with a nice view and fabulously air conditioned. Breakfast (included in the price) offered a nice selection of local and western fare, and it was always fresh. The pool - ah, the pool - I spent many a sweltering afternoon in there, when it was too hot to go temple trampling or bar hopping.
Besides Lim, who seemed to be always there, all the staff were gracious, attentive and highly responsive. And don't let me forget the spa, where I got a terrific foot massage as well as a full body massage (the masseuse used a technique new to me - at points I thought she was doing handstands on my back).
I'd recommend it to anyone going to Siem Reap. You feel at home. The price is right. The size is perfect. And everyone there will treat you like royalty. An amazing find.
