Spent 3 nights at this oasis in an otherwise dusty, chaotic city. The staff were extremely friendly and willing to help any time. Room was clean, comfortable and suprisingly modern (ipod speakers!). The bed was firm, but this seems to be the normal for Cambodia.
The pool was relaxing and the cabanas surrounding the pool were even more chill.
We stayed in the deluxe room with a pool view, which had a view of the pool but also construction (read: toilet bowls and other supplies) to the right. The patio was nice and we were able to dry our clothing, so even though we paid $10 extra for a pool view, we really paid the extra to dry our clothing :)
Overall a very good hotel, felt comfortable the entire time, would stay here again and encourage other travelers to as well.
