I stayed here as my preferred place couldn't fit me in the entire stay. I don't get the 5 star reviews - evidently people haven't stayed in Siem Reap or elsewhere much for comparison.
Possibly I got the worst room, but still. It was all a bit dingy and old. Nothing special over so many other guest houses at best, but the toilet didn't work in my room. The hot water system didn't work, even if you don't need it. The air con could not be adjusted, but blasted glacial air etc.
Yes, there is a drink on arrival, but it was sickly sweet and many places do this. Yes, the staff are friendly, but this is the norm. Breakfast is included, but the coffee is horrible etc. Bike is free, but it was terrible to ride (and free bikes are common or good bikes cheap to hire). The price isn't that high, but there are many other guesthouses at this price or cheaper.
The garden courtyard is nice, but small. Booking was smooth, but only after waiting for the courtesy tuk-tuk for > 1 hour despite the repeated 'few minutes only' on the phone. It is close to the centre.
In summary, nothing special and for me annoying.
