The title says it all - the hotel itself is very big and has a luxury lobby with traditional Khmer artworks, etc. The buffet breakfast is amazing with a big variety of foods to choose from. The staff are very friendly and most of them speak very good english. This hotel is only a 15-20 minute tuk-tuk drive from the Angkor temples, 5 minute walk to the night markets, pub street, etc.
The hotel also provides tuk-tuk service however it is usually $2-3 more expensive than the ones you can get on the streets.
The spa and massage facility that the hotel has is also very nice, they have a big range of different massages and spa treatments that will suit your needs.
However, the room is very old. When I first entered the room it had a very old mouldy smell. The furnitures looked old and it was obvious that they were they for ages. The bathroom is also old as well with mould patches along the ceilings. There are stains along the room walls and the bathroom walls.
My room overlooked the front of the hotel (parking area) so there was not enough sunlight coming into the room (maybe this was why the room smelt like moulds).
Also the wifi is terrible at this hotel. You have to constantly log into the hotel wifi as it disconnects every time you leave the room, or go down to the lobby area. Even when you are connected, sometimes the wifi is so slow that you don't get internet.
