my husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on the 3rd stop of our trip to Asia in August, 2013. We used starwood points for the 2-night stay which made it perfectly fine. we obviously didn't spend much time here as we were so limited in Siem Reap (which we LOVED overall), so below please find a summary of the key points.
Location - Closest to the airport/angkor wat and about a 5 minute ride via tuk tuk to pub street. The cost to/from was $2 - although the drivers will try and charge more.
Lobby/Breakfast - Both lovely, plenty of options at breakfast but a steep price of appx. $16 each. Considering everything else is so cheap in Siem Reap (i.e. $5 hour massages, $1 beer, etc.) this was pricey but had a nice selection.
Room - Could use an upgrade....hard beds, old TVs.. but overall was very clean and the bathroom was nice. Again, we didn't spend much time in the room so it was a perfectly fine and free stay as we used points. A note if traveling during the hotter months - the power tends to go on/off at night when everyone is back running their AC. We didn't mind this as it added to the "ambience" so to speak.
Grounds - We didn't use the pool but the view was nice from our room.
Staff - The staff were lovely - front desk, bell staff, housekeeping, breakfast, etc. So nice and eager to help.
Overall - This was not the best of any starwood property we stayed at during our stay, but was perfectly fine as a base to see the AMAZING Angkor Wat and city of Siem Reap. We are so glad we visited here, the people, sights, food, etc. - we loved all of it and will never forget our trip here. If Cambodia isn't on your list - add it ASAP!
