I stayed in this hotel from Feb 16th to Feb 19th and booked it through Agoda.com. My cost included breakfast and an airport pickup (though I used mine to pick me up from the Giant Ibis bus terminus).
The hotel is excellently located in the heart of town, literally 30 seconds away from Pub Street. Amazingly, you couldn't hear the noise from the street despite being so close to it. The rooms are huge with walk out terraces/balconies (a welcome message with my name was spelled out on the bed with leaves which was a nice touch after a long 7 1/2 hour bus journey from Phnom Penh!). The door locks with a normal metal key and lock (no electronic key card system).
There is a really nice swimming pool in the back to relax in (not big enough for doing laps).
The staff were extremely friendly and extremely courteous - greeting me with a bow and palms pressed together. They truly outdid themselves when I had accidently left my headphones in reception on my way to the airport and they managed to call the tuk tuk driver to take me back to the hotel to pick them up. They also arranged a small breakfast box for me to take with me to Angkor Wat at 5a.m. so I wouldn't be hungry - another excellent touch.
Wifi was available throughout the hotel and the large flat screen TV in the room had loads of English language channels.
What stops this from being a 5-star rating is: 1) The aircon was too small for the room and didn't cool it properly; 2) No breakfast buffet - there was only a set breakfast with bread, juice and fruit; 3) There is no door on the shower, so the whole bathroom gets wet.
