Stayed for 3 nights in the double standard room and this was the perfect place to stay.
Right from the start, communications when booking was prompt and polite. As our arrival plans into Siem Reap were not firmed up yet, we only notified thm 2 days before of our arrival method & time. Nonetheless, our free tuk tuk pick up was waiting at the bus station when we arrived.
The welcome drinks were tasty and refreshing and the cold towel was a cool respite against the hot weather. Check-in was a breeze and the staff was polite and knowledgeable, helping us arrange for an official guide and a tuktuk for the Angkor 2 day tour. The grounds of the guesthouse had security and was peaceful and filled with greenery.
The room was a tad small but very clean with 2 bottles of water supplied daily.. More importantly, the air-conditioning was working and was able to cool down the room quite quickly. Bathroom was simple, decent and cleaned daily by housekeeping.
Location wise, the place is near the night market and walkable distance from Pub Street. There are convenience shops within 5 min walking distance as well. Despite being near all these places, the guesthouse was very quiet.
The restaurant served good food at very competitive prices. We soon realized that it was cheaper to eat in the guesthouse restaurant which is usually not the case! We ended up having breakfast twice, lunch once and dinner once while staying. On all meals we chose local food and was not disappointed! Service was polite but it was sometimes hard to get the attention of the staff.
On the last 2 days that we stayed, there was a wedding going in in the neighborhood and it got quite noisy. The noise started early in the morning and lasted till late at night, effectively spoiling our plans to sleep in on our last day. Understood from the staff that traditional weddings usually last a couple of days. Throughout the wedding period, the staff was constantly apologizing for the noise although they had no control over it. I guess as travelers, we should learn to enjoy the culture of the place we are visiting since we are living in the midst of locals.
In all, would definitely stay here again!
