It's peaceful here, close enough to walk to the night market and the restuarants but not poluted by the noise. The rooms are set around a small pool. There are plenty of loungers and shade from the sun.The small bar does a great selection of cocktails and the food is fine.
The ground floor rooms have an outside bath which I was not brave enough to try. There are a fleet of hotel approved tuk tuk drivers waiting outside the entrance so you are never left searching for one in the rain.
The chef ringing the bell to announce to the waiters when each breakfast is ready is likely to wake you up - but that's the only downside I can think of.
The staff are delightful - pretty much all young men - happy smiling faces and always willing to do anything to make your visit pleasant. It's a gay friendly hotel although not everyone staying there is but if that makes you uncomfortable then you'll miss out on a great oasis of comfort and calm in Siem Reap.
