We found this place via Trip Advisor and you can often tell the good ones as they have many good reviews. Lets face it most of the time people only go on the internet to complain, that said I tend to do neither. Even if I have a good experience or a bad one I generally can't be bothered, however, I am waiting for my bus to leave the Golden Mango and in truth I think I would have written a review about this place even if I was at home.
When you first enter the place they sit you down with a drink, take your bags and talk you through your stay. How far town is, how far the temples are, where you can get a Tuk Tuk from etc. The young lad that sat us down was so softly spoken and polite and you think 'nice lad' then you realize that everyone is like that. Most Cambodians are genuine, polite and humble people and all the people that worked at this hotel were no different.
So to the stuff that you want to know:
How was the room: Clean with air conditioning. It is not overly glamourous but do remember we are talking two star!
Is it close to centre: there are hotels closer but this is close to the Temples (40 minutes on a bicycle is you fancy it) but they offer a FREE Tuk Tuk to town anyway!
Swimming pool: Very Clean and warm (even in the rain) with a nice fountain and almost infinite pool feel.
The Food: Cheap (3-4 dollars a meal) and of a very good standard, Cambodian and Western if you please.
What else: we had massages, they did our washing, they booked our bus tickets, they organised bikes for the temples (free) and Tuk Tuk's for town. There was literally no issue that was too big, the hotel is clean and beautiful throughout set within border of leafy palm trees.
We paid $18 a night, which is not overly cheap but for what you get it certainly is!
Highly recommended :)
