“Lovely place, lovely people!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Our stay here was great. The staff were incredibly friendly and the room was lovely and clean. Only two complaints, in spite of the fact that the room had a fridge (which seemed great) the staff turn off power to your room when you're out thus making the fridge a little redundant! Rotten watermelon was the result of this! Secondly the water coming out of the shower smelt of rust which was a bit unpleasant, but there was no sign it was actually dirty! Overall a very positive experience. And the son of the owner is the most adorable little toddler who is the happiest little man I had seen in a long time!

The place is affordable (10USD) per night for a two bedroom room with fan. the staffs are accommodating and knows how to speak english so you understand each other. You can also booked for the tours around siem reap. Also you can buy tickets here for your trip back to bangkok via poipet or direct travel to bangkok.

This hotel is in good walking distance from the main part of town. The hotel is nice and clean and they will help you plan your travel around the temples. The staff are genuine, friendly and helpful. The rooms are very basic, but have all that you need. Would stay here again

Pros: The location for this place was fanastic. It was walking distance to pub street, and was quite accessible. They set up the tuk tuk for me for the day to see the temples and were happy to help with laundry and bus tickets when I enquired about them. The room was small but clean enough (toilet could have used some cleaning but it was cheap so I can't complain.)

Cons: When I got there I complained that the fan in my fan room sound like it had a generator attached to it. He said he only had a double room with fan that I could switch to but I would have to pay the difference. I obviously didn't want to pay twice the amount for one person so I asked him if they would take a look at it and he said no. Sleeping through the night was rough. The next day I asked to change my room to an AC room in hopes that it would be quieter. I asked in the afternoon after I came back from being out and about because I didn't see the main guy in the morning and he refused saying now my room wont be rented (as though there was a line up of people being turned away). I was quite upset and he told me to find accomodation elsewhere if I couldnt deal with the fan - So i walked across the street and checked in there.

Breakfast was a little overpriced for the quality of food available in Siem Reap.

The Mandalay Inn is a great guesthouse run by a friendly Cambodian family. I stayed there for 3 nights with my boyfriend, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was really clean with a comfortable bed. It was located close to the centre of town but I didn't notice any noise at night. The food in the restaurant was also very tasty and really well priced.

Mandalay Inn is just a short walk, less than five minutes, to a number of restaurants and bars (Pub Street) and the night market. For the rate I was very happy with this hotel. The staff speaks English and the hotel is very clean. This is a typical budget friendly hotel with some charm. For a couple of nights it is a good place to stay, but if you are here for more than twoor three nights i might upgrade to a nicer place. The gym is nothing to write home about but you'll get your workout from visiting Angkor Wat. I would recommend staying here, but watch out for the Mosquitos in the reception area, they will get you!
