My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and we were super happy with our stay.
The room was clean and spacious, the bed was lovely. The only thing to complain about in our room was the towel rack which wasn't mounted properly so some loose parts of it fell down onto the floor a couple of times.
The breakfast was delicious, we enjoyed every one of the dishes we tried there and the service at the breakfast was superb. Almost too good.. it almost felt like the people working there were our slaves when they even folded our napkins and placed them in our laps (so the following days we made sure we did it ourselves before they had the chance to). But really, nothing to complain about there!
The staff was really friendly in general. We didn't really need to interact much with them but whenever you passed by someone they greeted you with a smile. We sort of felt a bit guilty whenever they dropped whatever they were doing in order to run and greet us at the entrance of the hotel and breakfast area.
If you're into hanging out in the "Bar street" in the touristic centre this hotel might be considered to be located a bit off. However, we preferred to visit the non touristic areas when we were not up in the Angkor area, so we didn't really mind.
There's a lot of other good things I could write about, but I think it's time to wrap this one up :)
I would definitely choose this hotel again if I came back to Siem Reap!
