“Good value + good location!”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

The Golden Orange Hotel was recommended by a team leader for BeTheChangeVolunteers.org who had used the hotel as a base of operations when building a new floating school at Kampong Khleange on Boeung Tonle Sap in the middle of the village built on the VERY high stilts. He said they liked the bar right on the street, and the team liked the location "a few blocks" from Pub Street. I would have to say the hotel is a LONG "few blocks" from Pub Street, but it is a close $2 tuk tuk ride to the night life on Pub Street and just across a bridge from the Raffles Grand Hotel. When I arrived from Bangkok, I was met at the airport by a car/driver holding up a large sign with my name on it who immediately started trying to sell his services as a driver to the temples. The streets were still flooded due to the cyclone that had just gone through the Philippine Islands, doing substantial damage. The manager was kind enough to put me in a room on the second floor so I was unaware there was no elevator until reading some of the reviews after I got there. My room was large, and the bathroom has a western toilet. The shower was a little different in that the best way to use it was to sit down in the seat molded for the purpose and to take a variation of the "bucket" shower that is the norm in Africa. The water pressure was awful so it helped to get wet, shampoo up, then use the hand-held shower to rinse off. The water temp could have been hotter, but it was OK for the climate. There was NO hot water at the sink. The TV was old but worked to get the 3 English-language channels that show re-runs of the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, and Bravo endlessly. CNN is on sometimes, and BBC had no sound. Management turns off the power when the rooms are not occupied, but AC and fan worked great. Lighting leaves a lot to be desired, but if you travel with a reading light, you're OK. There is no mosquito net, but the window was screened, and I never saw a moz. Breakfast menu offered a choice of western and Khmer items, and the cooking was quite good. The hotel was well maintained and very clean, and my room was cleaned well daily. Laundry was done quickly and inexpensively and well. I booked through Agoda.com, and the rate included breakfast and airport pick up. Staff arranged onward bus transporttion. The only thing missing was a pool for the hot afternoons!

Room Tip: Room 206 is right at the top of the stairs so late-night revelers could be heard.

The town was flooded so I couldn't get to my guesthouse of my choice. So I asked Tuk Tuk to bring me around for good value hotels...most were very run down and shabby. So after a long search I saw Golden Orange---it looked new and had restaurant outside to chill out. After a long walk up to the 5th floor...i saw room. Much better, much cleaner and no musty smell compared to the other hotels. I was sold--got it for less than the room rate which included breakfast. No real coffee :(, although buffet had lots of choice. Owner and staff were always trying to help me without the hassle. All good! A few dollars tuktuk will get you to pubstreet if you want to party and eat well. Hotel was very clean and I slept well in the comfy bed.

Room Tip: i like top floors--very quiet and good exercise!

We got free pick up by the hotel arranged Tuk Tuk driver upon arrival at bus station by the Mekong Express coach from Phnom Penh (6 hrs journey ! ), and we were immediately approached by the driver to offer us transportation around the Angkor Wat for US$20 per day which also include those remote temples.

The hotel is very basic but clean, and for around US$25 per night, there was really not much we can expect. The breakfast was a la carte and surprisingly good. The reception staff is friendly and assisted us for bus ticket back to Phnom Penh and all the tips around the area. There is free internet near the reception and it 's working.

The room is spacious enough for two people with TV, fridge and air-con and hot shower which is adequate since we don't spend much time in the hotel. The hotel is located a bit far from the main pub street or the old town so you will need the tuk tuk evey time you step out of the hotel. It costs around US$2 per trip by tuk tuk around the town area. The hotel is located near the main road to Ankor Wat which is good as it only takes around 10 mins to get to the main entrance of Ankor Wat.

Overall, I will recommend this hotel.

I was picked up at the airport by one of the tuk tuk drivers who station themselves outside the Golden Orange Hotel. The pickup and breakfast were part of the package I had. The tuk tuk drives who work the hotel are very different than what you would encounter in Thailand, they are interested in providing service and not kidnapping you to take you around to tailor and jewellery shops. The hotel is a newer 3 star that is family owned and run, this means the staff are always at their best. The rooms are a decent size, clean with western style bathrooms ( a good thing to know). I really appreciated that the mattress had a little give in it and I had my most comfortable sleep since arriving in Asia The sports bar is a great place to hang out after a day at the temples, the beer is cold and the price is very cheap, draft is $1. The breakfast was standard fair for a 3 star hotel but the real surprise was the rest of the food, choose the Cambodian food and have your mouth ready for a real treat, again at ridiculously low prices. The relaxed friendly atmosphere makes it easy to meet other guests, some of the local people who may come to the bar. They own a second bar that is in close to Pub Street called Mickey’s this place is a busy bar with lots of expats, tourists and locals who want to have fun and meet new friends. Mickeys stays open late so you may have other service industry workers drop in when they get off work. Both bars have pool tables and any of the local girls who may be at the bar are happy to play a game with you, watch yourself though, they are good players and have a lot of fun playing. The hotel is a $2.00 tuk tuk ride from the markets, pub street, which means you have more local culture around you without the noise of Pub Street. There is a Khmer bar and restaurant around the corner from the hotel that caterers to the local populating, a must visit. 5 of us had 3 big appetisers 3 large jugs of beer for about $9.00 the food was delicious and occasionally mysterious but safe.
I spent many days at the temples wanting to spend significant amounts of time being quietly present as I absorb some of this history that has been such a powerful part of Cambodia’s history. The vendors at the temple are working had but respectful of being told no thank you, some of the goods they have are of surprising quality, if you shop have a look bargains can be found.
Finally I would like to thank Doug and Sitha and their family members for making my stay one of the best experiences I have had in Asia. All that on a restricted budget. For any night life tips ask Doug, he is a man in the know and can help you maximize your time in the evening.

We booked 3 nights in advance at the Golden Orange - definitely the wrong thing to do.
Booked a deluxe room and were given a standard double with shower and bath taps that wouldn't turn off and a disinterested owner. The owner spent his time smoking and sitting at his computer. This is a most unfriendly hotel with no atmosphere, although the desk staff did try to be helpful. Breakfasts were served cold and the staff seemed unable to understand the notion of hot eggs! After the last night we decided to remain in Siem Reap but moved to the Passagio Hotel which we would highly recommend.

Golden Orange Hotel is my kind of hotel as it doesn't bust my budget and meets my comfort level. The owner and staff are helpful, accomodating and reliable. The location is is within reach of local shops and tourist attraction (old market, PUB street, etc...) They are also able to provide 5-star service (swimming pool,spa,... ) upon request at a nearby location. They provide free internet service and pool table. They are even willing to prepare take-away breakfast on one of our early trips that did not fall into their usual breakfast schedule. They are also supportive of volunteer groups in aid of charitable works.

Great staff, did their best to make me happy and helped arrange tours for me. They could not have worked harder to make sure I had a great visit. The only downside was it's location. It was not in the 'middle' of things, but there was always a tuk-tuk around to take me where I wanted for a reasonable price.
