Loved this hotel! The people who work there are so friendly and helpful. I cannot thank them enough for making our stay so lovely. They set up a guide for the temples. He was extremely knowledgeable and kind. Can highly recommend him, you can request him from the front desk and they will set it up. His name was Dat (pronounced Date). Also, a Tuk Tuk driver comes included with the price of your room. Ours was avail. on call and would arrive in no more than ten minutes time if you called, as I think he must live near by. He was also very nice and provided us with ice cold water when desired. You can request him also. I'm running a blank on what his name was, but his driver number was 7211. Also, my husband liked that he drove the Tuk Tuk with a motorcycle instead of the usual mopeds. :)
I highly recommend a trip out to the Artisans Angkor silk farm. You get a free guided tour (We tipped him $5.00, though not sure what amount is customary, he seemed happy) through the entire process of making silk...very interesting even for our 8 year old. Our guide tried to get me to eat a worm (after it'd been cooked) and I wouldn't, but I dared him to and he smiled and popped it right in his mouth! Lol, I found out that they always eat them, but usually after spicing them up a bit!
We also visited Angkor's Artisans in Siem Reap, which had a variety of crafts to view and watch the process (again with a guide)-- also very interesting.
Oh, back to the hotel...the restaurant food was very good! We ate dinner there 4 nights and were not disappointed, on the contrary the food was delightful, as was the service and atmosphere. Also, the pool is lovely and he rooms very comfortable. The hotels boutique atmosphere, for us, was much nicer than the big ones we drove past in town. Plus, it's much more quiet at this hotel.
Stay here when in Siem Reap.
P.s. good idea to have a small flashlight with you, seems as the power in Cambodia wasn't very reliable, it went out a couple times, though this hotel has a generator so we were never without (and therefor air conditioning) for long.
