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!
