Spent 2 nights at this hotel as part of a week long tour of Cambodia. It is a reasonable place to stay in Siem Reap. Beautiful lobby, nice pool area, large bathrooms and clean rooms, but it is far from all of the action. You must take a tuk tuk to get to the markets and restaurant area on Pub Street. The beds are firmer than most beds in the US, but better than some other hotels we stayed at during our trip. The bathrooms have a stand up shower and a tub, but the shower door does not seal so water leaks out on the floor when showering. We had breakfast boxes one morning provided by the hotel. All pastry and bread products. The other morning we ate at the buffet. It was quite large with many selections both asian and american. Overall a decent choice if you can't get closer to the action.
Once complaint is that in order for the a/c to work, or to have your door show a do not disturb light, you need to have your key in the slot in the room. But since you have to take your key with you when you leave the room, all power shuts off when you leave. No way to leave anything charging in your room when you step out or to let the staff know not to enter. Frustrating but not the end of the world, so 3 stars..
