As we heard that most desirable places in Siam Reap are booked up early, we decided to pre-book our stay here. We liked the idea that it had a pool and reviews seemed to be good. The reviews lived up to our expectations, the guesthouse turned out to be a very young chilled guesthouse with a lively pool atmosphere and the owner played music or the English radio channels during the day. Annoyingly we had to wait until 2pm until we could check into our rooms, which we did not mind, we just had nowhere to store our luggage apart from using the main reception which was impractical. The owner did make an effort to speak to us while we were there, although it did come across as being forced and he came across as being arrogant. When we tried to book the room for another night he put the cost of our room up by $6 which was very frustrating as he knew we were happy staying here. Rooms were basic, clean, no qualms about the room at all. Overall a nice stay, was pleasant having a pool after exploring Angkor Wat in the heat and proved to encourage a nice sociable atmosphere.
