We were the only guest in this small boutique hotel. It is a gay friendly hotel which i find cool, enough discrimination everywhere.
The owner was there accross the road when we arrived, me and my wife. I guess positive discrimination in this case lead him not even to come and say hello and welcome, was your 24H trip to Cambodia ok. He knew we were arriving from Cape Town.
He didn't bother to wave at us during the 36H we spent there, was busy courting and that seamed more important than welcoming a guest.
We had the Sepia room. Supposed to be the best. The room is indeed large and nicely decorated, but the 2 air con (32°C outside means you have no choice) sounded like an old russian or chinese war engine coming out of a recycle war machine. And it had no bath tub, not OK for me in this price range.
We were told the reception was up at 6, which is already late to see sunrise in Angkor. Woke up in the morning and called, No answer. Called 10 min late... no answer
I went down, found no one, meaning not a single soul in the hotel, all exterior doors closed, ie we were locked inside.
A nice staff arrived at 7:30 and told us the other person left because he had to study for an exam.
I hope he succeeded at least.
The best part was the massage me and my wife had. really good and this is why i give it a star.
If you are looking for a man2man massage, i guess this is an excellent place. In my case my masseur was very well trained and respectful of my body.
We took a tuktuk and found the FCC hotel which was splendid for cheaper.
