When we first pulled up at the front of this hotel I was concerned that we were at the wrong place....as there were a few concrete pavers on the red mud road out the front and no driveway....errr is this the place...i found myself muttering.
However when we walked through the gate the reception service was first class and the further into the hotel we went the more beautiful it became.
Two things about this hotel:
it is a fair way out of town (5 - 10 mins by tuk tuk)
there is construction next door currently.
However these are the only negatives.
We found ourselves in arguably the best room overlooking the pool and the ambience and the retro quality of the place transported us back an age.
It still had the mod cons and good wifi thrown in. The breakfast was first class and the provision of a free tuk tuk whenever you wanted one went a long way to alleviating the distance issue.
We could only get three nights and we had four nights at the Sokha afterwards. A large modern hotel and a big contrast. We found ourselves thinking back to our great three nights at our exotic wonderful hotel.
Sitting by the pool was my favorite past time although there is much to see in Siem Reap.More
