A really beautiful hotel with a great pool to cool off in after shopping and sightseeing.
I emailed the hotel beforehand to get rooms overlooking the pool which only cost $5 extra per room per night above the standard rooms. It makes a big difference to have a nice outlook even if you don't spend much time on the balcony. The rooms were really nice with comfortable beds but with really high pillows that would make a chiropractor happy. Very uncomfortable! They really need 2 extra low pillows per room as most hotels have.
Make sure you have a shower in the morning or at night as the hot water ran out in the afternoon just as I put conditioner in my hair. Now that was a bad hair day.
Great buffet breakfast. We caught tuk tuks for $2 to the main tourist strip for dinner, snacks and shopping. Pub Street is where all the action is with lots of eateries and the night markets. You could walk there but the heat is so sapping in the middle of the day which is where the pool comes in handy.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful with secure baggage storage for our late flight.
A special hotel and a great base to visit Angkor from.
