Golden Mango Inn

Certificate of Excellence

We stayed at the Golden Mango Inn in Siem Reap on 25th & 26th October. Prior to arriving we had been in contact by email with Wann and Sony. They offer a free collection from the airport which was real handy and easy to arrange. We arrived around 10.30am and were offered breakfast - again nice touch. And some welcome drinks and Sony gave us some tips on what to see and do at the temples and in the area.
The staff were really friendly and helpful - a real gentle and polite crew of staff that were always smiling and willing to help with any request. We used a tuk tuk driver that Sony had arranged who also was extremely helpful and courteous.
The building itself is a really nice old fashioned building. The room was really nice - big size, with tv, a/c, fridge with complimentary water each day, in room wi fi and hot water. No safety box but we left the couple of valuable things we had with staff in the Inn's safety box. There was no problem.
The Golden Mango isn't in the centre of Siem Reap - its at most 5minutes by tuk tuk to the busy pub street,which is worth a look but not unmissable- the arrangement is free tuk tuk in and $2 for the return trip. Not loads to see in Siem Reap itself, we were there for the temples and we thought the Golden Mango was the perfect location for resting before and after.
Breakfast was basic but nice. We had a late lunch one day which filled the gap, and there is a restaurant next door which does a really nice beef fried rice. But other than this spot, the Golden Mango has little else next door or along the little laneway where its located. It more a place to get to after your days rambling in the temples and just chill out in and for this it was just perfect!
The staff there arranged our bus tickets to Phnom Penh and sorted out some issue with our collection and transfer to the bus station. We would definitely recommend the place to family and friends.

A pleasant, large, clean room with a decent bathroom. Friendly staff who helped wherever they could (some spoke better English than others though!). Breakfast was a bit disappointing good fresh fruit but coffee and juice were not nice and toast was always undercooked.

A little way out from the centre of Siem Reap though so you will alsways need to get a tuk tuk to/from hotel. We used one of the drivers who waited outside the hotel to take us to the temples and agreed a daily price and he was brilliant.

Good value stay!

We have picked the Golden Mango Inn based on reviews, and we have not been disappointed during our 7 day stay.
Main positivies:
-Room was spotless. Literally sparkling clean. Cleaning service was thorough and excessively polite. We are picky about the cleanliness, and this place was perfect
-Bed was very comfortable
-Room in general was airy, well-lit and spacious, furnished with good quality, new-looking furniture.
-Compared to Vietnam or Thailand, or even Phnom Penh, it was very reasonably priced, and if you stay longer, the discount is easy to get.
-Pickup at 1 AM bus was right there waiting for us, even though half the town was flooded
-Free internet worked, and was reasonably fast.
-Free breakfast was an okay way to start a day, and fattening it with some extra eggs was rather cheap
-Free bikes!
-The tuktuk driver recommended by the hotel had good English, and was rather helpful.
-Hotel reception was also very friendly, sometimes it was hard to get some things across, but all in all useful. There was no pushiness towards any kinds of organized trips, no pressuring, just polite help.

Negatives
-Dont eat at the hotel's restaurant outside breakfast, there are tons of far better options in Siem Reap (though you have to get into town for those). The main dishes (even the cambodian ones) cooked up by the hotel are simply not very good
-Laundry was a bit pricy
-The bikes offered really need some service, they are creaky monsters.
-It is a bit far away from town, but its a free ride into town

Room Tip: Rooms on higher levels might have a bit of problem with the wifi reception, but it can be solved if...

Golden Mango Inn is a small hotel with 5 stars service. I have travelled over the world but never expected this service from a hotel in Cambodia. Golden Mango Inn make me feel like home because it safe, clean, cheap with full service such as free bf, restaurant, Tuk Tuk with reasonable price.

First I booked the hotel but need a lot of information, they alway keep replied me even the questions are not related to the hotel at all. The driver who picked me up was so so so polite also all staffs at the hotel.

If I back there to SR again, the only one choice in my mind will be Golden Mango Inn.

Golden Mango Inn is a nice small hotel located a little bit out of downtown area, but easily reachable by tuktuk. The hotel provides free pick up by tuktuk, which I found convenient for travelers who come to Siem Reap for the first time. You do not have to worry how to get to the hotel because a tuktuk driver, sent by the hotel, is already waiting outside the airport/bus station to bring you to the hotel.

Besides the free pick-up, the hotel also provides free one way tuktuk rides to downtown area. You can ask the driver to bring you back to the hotel for a mere $2.

What I like most about Golden Mango Inn is its cleanliness, hospitality, and good service. Unfortunately, this is not a place to stay for those on a wheelchair because there is no elevator in the hotel. Apart from that, everything else is great here.

Free breakfast is included in the room rate. It's a simple breakfast (toast and fried egg with juice, coffee/tea and fresh fruit) but enough to start your day in beautiful Siem Reap.

Wann, the owner of the hotel, is a nice and friendly guy, who speaks excellent English. He will give you suggestions on places to visit, not only in Siem Reap, but also other places in Cambodia.

All in all, I recommend this hotel to those budget-conscious travelers, who want to stay in good, clean accommodation but want to enjoy Siem Reap to the fullest. Here you will not only get a place to stay, but also the experience of interacting with the locals and feel the warmth of the Cambodian people.

I will definitely stay at the Golden Mango Inn again next time I come back to Siem Reap.

Room Tip: For a group of three who want to have separate beds, choose triple room. It comes with three single...

Words cannot describe enough the great time that we had at the Golden Mango, but let me give it a try:
- we came all the way from Kampot in the southern part of Cambodia. Normally this should be a 10 hour trip. Unfortunately due to a breakdown of the bus it took us 14 hours to get at Siem Reap. By exitting the bus the tuk tuk driver of the Golden Mango was still there. He waited there for four hours! Everyone was incredibly nice for us
- the staff was brilliant with no exeptions. English was extremely well. We had a long conversation one night with mr. Wan, the owner, who told us a lot about Cambodia which was very much appreciated
- the room was extremely clean and quiet, the best we had in Cambodia. They serve free breakfast with eggs and toast. The guesthouse had a really nice colonial atmosphere
- we ate two night in the restaurant and enjoyed it a lot. About 3 dollars for a great main course. A bit slow, but who is in a hurry on his holiday
- free tuk tuk to the city. Return trip is 2 dollar which is a good price for going to the city center but staying at a quiet place
- one day we hired a tuk tuk for a day which took us to the far-away temples and the landmine museum. the driver (Mr. Pin) was very nice and we had a great time

It is probably quite clear that we would recommend the Golden Mango to everyone. It had an important added value in our trip to Cambodia
