After a great stay at Rambutan Resort in Phnom Penh I was happy to give the Golden Banana Boutique Hotel a try. My partner and I were greeted at the airport with a tuk tuk pick up and driven directly to the hotel without hassle. The hotel is in a great location, only a 2 minute walk to the tourist centre of Siem Reap. The room was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated, the hotel is well planned with a central pool and urban oases feel. The staff helped to celebrate my birthday and my dinner at the (in house) Red Lantern Restaurant was wonderful. A nice extra was that the pool and restaurant at the neighbouring hotel, Golden Banana Boutique Resort, was also available for our use. Overall, a perfect hotel for our stay in Siem Reap – thank you !!!

From collection from the airport to reception staff to management,to waiting staff and cleaners all were friendly and excellent.
Complex is well located and a very short walk to central area,pub street,markets etc.our Large two story two roomed unit with a nice verandah and bathroom made our 9 day stay most enjoyable.
Good breakfast and other meals with yummy pancakes and a wide choice of local and western meals.
Helpful tourist advise and Davy our driver was most excellent.
In conclusion would recommend to anyone seeking boutique accommodation in siem reap.

Fantastic hotel. 2nd stay for me and still as beautiful as ever.. Rooms are great, food is fantastic and service is outstanding... Working with Thol over the Internet to organize a large group booking was easily done. The guide Thai and driver Davey were of very high quality... Thank you Golden Bananna. The best Boutique Hotel in Siem Reap

Was very sad to leave the Golden Banana - from the housemaids, reception staff, drivers & guides, to the manager, Tommy, all staff went out of their way to accommodate the guests and nothing was a problem. The rooms are stunning, roomy, cool and spotlessly clean. The food ordered from the restaurant was delicious and very well priced. As mentioned in other reviews, the Golden Banana is an oasis from the busy streets and markets of Siem Reap. It is 'gay friendly' but suitable for all. I can't wait to return! A special mention to driver Davy - the best in Siem Reap :-)

This small resort was a great place to stay. We had the monkey room which meant to climb stairs twice. Once to our unit above the bar and once from the living area to the bedroom and washroom. The stairs are a little narrow and steep but it's part of the charm of the resort. The shower and amenities were nice as well as fresh linens. The bathroom door really didn't close well yet the doors were like painted old cabinet doors which have charm, yet minimal functionality to close completely. The wifi in the room and tv was great!

The hotel food is good as well and the free breakfast adds to it! Our property was not as busy as the other two GB around us.

The hotel pool is nice yet gets minimal sun. If you plan to spend a day at the pool you can walk to the resort a door down or simply stay there. Same ownership.

Location is very near to the night market and then to the pub street. Everything is walkable yet of course a tuk tuk can take you as well.

Very safe feel to SR overall as well as the property.

Honestly, we loved every single minute at Golden Banana. It was so beautiful. The pool was amazing.. The rooms, peaceful and relaxing.. But the staff really made it for us. They were always helpful, super polite and just beautiful people.
Tuktuk drivers right outside the door waiting, if you wanted a tour or just a ride into town.
The staff organised some really awesome tours for us. And the food was incredible. Especially the coffee! omg.
We stayed in GB villas 2. Which we found perfect, but you can utilise any of the other GB facilities. So we often laid by the bigger pool and had cocktails.

All of that for such a good price..

We highly recommend staying at the Golden Banana resorts..
And we are already planning our next trip to GB!

Charming hotel like an oasis in the wilderness. Just a 5 minute walk from town / Old Market. I loved my room. The A/C only cools the room somewhat. And the "hot" water isn't always hot -- or is barely warm sometimes. And sometimes at night you could hear the "boom boom" from a nearby club.
But the staff was wonderful, and I would stay here again.
