“A welcome stay for the business visitor”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

The Golden Gate is an ideal place to stay for the long-term business visitor. By choosing a deluxe room one gets a much larger room with a kitchenette area that has a microwave, preparation area, cupboards, fridge and sink.

Also, the hotel is ideally located for eating out and for supermarket-type shopping.

However, what really makes all the difference is the hotel staff. Over the past five years, it has been very comforting as a regular visitor to meet up with them all again. They all work as a team and create a very friendly homely atmosphere, a real bonus if one is staying long-term.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room, has more space plus a kitchenette area

Very friendly staff, excellent location, free laundry! Generally very clean; never saw any bugs. The biggest complaint is the noisy plastic accordion door to the bathroom. Hard not to wake up your roommate in the middle of the night. The bathroom could use some updating.

I stayed in Building B for a month while working, the facilities are old and run down but the place was very clean and safe, nothing went missing. Laundry was essential and perfect for my needs. Breakfast was average. You can ask for no breakfast and get $5 each day off your price and go have breakfast at artillery or the nice cafes around the street for cheaper and better. Especially loved the evening receptionists at building B Gany and Him whom I ended up chatting to many nights. Tips: Try to get a room with windows, cutlery, plates, kettle and stove available on request, don't take their breakfast option.

I hadn't expected a lot and wasn't disappointed - it was a dump. My room was somewhere underground more like a dungeon. No natural light or windows. Spooky corridors to navigate. Doors are made of plastic and walls thin so noise came in from everywhere. At least the room and bathroom were clean despite plumbing problems ie toilet wouldn't stop running. Had fridge and TV but no safe - needs a safe as plastic door not secure. Fridge stopped working during night and food spoilt. had to have it fixed up. No free water which is unusual. Trying to think of some good things but hard.

Room Tip: My best advice - Don't stay at this hotel

Value for Money, Located in the prime location surrounded by good restaurants and major attractions. Free Laundry was a Bonus. The staff were very friendly and rooms were neat and clean with the basic amenities.

Stayed here for a few nights - besides the price, the good points are the location, it's fairly safe, the free laundry service (saved me from getting an almost certain stain on a favorite white shirt), friendly staff, decent internet (for Cambodia) and the breakfast (nothing amazing but better than what I've had elsewhere in this town). Bad points are the place is quite run-down looking, my room seemed clean enough but did have a certain smell to it, and you can feel how they cut corners to keep their costs down: I have never had such a small bar of soap (and no shampoo), no newspapers to read in the morning, not even any customary drinking water in your room.

A lot of NGO workers and student tour groups stay here, which helps give the place a certain feeling of security compared to the dilapidated rooms - prison bars on my windows, the regular door lock hardly worked on my room so the bolts felt really necessary.

I'd definitely stay again, but it will never be the sort of place I'll look forward to staying at.

Room Tip: No elevator so be prepared if you get the third floor.
