This hotel is real value for money, at $38 per night per room including breakfast , we also received a free laundry service of two pieces per person per day. The staff were extremely helpful and happy, they organised a guide and tours for us. On arrival we received a welcome cold towel and refreshing drink. Having caught a very early flight in we didn't expect our rooms to be ready, however that was very quickly organised for us. Rooms were very clean. Bed firm but comfortable.
This hotel is only a 10-15 minute easy walk to town, however a tuk tuk will only cost you $2 we preferred to walk in and tuk tuk home.
Only improvement I would suggest is to replace the keyed petty case tin that is bolted inside of the wardrobe (it did the job to hold passports, etc) for a real small computerised safe, I'm sure other guests would appreciate this.
If you were sharing with someone that you weren't close to you should be aware that our teenagers wished to let others know that they didn't particularly like the glass panelled wall between the bathroom and the bedroom area as when the light in the bathroom was on you could see the other person's silhouette when they were showering. As a husband and wife this didn't bother us.
After a long day sightseeing it was lovely to come back to the fantastic pool and spa to cool off and relax before walking into town to Pub Street for dinner. We ate at the restaurant for evening meals twice, a little more expensive than in town but a good selection. You get use to the cheaper price for food in Pub Street especially when they are offering very cheap beers at 50 cents all day which the boys loved.
Free WiFi in room worked well, however there were two computers in the lobby for guests to use and each time I used these the staff would serve you with a welcome cold glass of water. You could also refill your water bottles at a water filter in the restaurant area.
Also remember that the majority of people that come to Siem Reap are there to visit the Angkor Temples one of those must does is to see the sunrise at Angkor Wat so this means many people are up at 5am in the morning. The hotel does have signs everywhere reminding people to be quiet in the halls, however if you are light sleeper be prepared to be woken and then go on back to sleep like we did.
At the time of our stay they were just completing the Frangipani Villa II, right next door, so now they have an additional restauarant/bar area in the front of the building, plus the staff advised that they were going to open up an in house spa.
Our family of four consisting of two older teens, stayed a week and would of liked to have stayed longer. The Khmer people are so friendly and such happy people, we really loved Siem Reap and our stay at the Frangipani Villa.
