The Golden Temple had the nicest hotel staff of any hotel that I stayed at during my trip. They made an effort to get to know the travellers and say hello all the time. The rooms are very nice, with a few niggles. The showers are weird and tended to get the whole bathroom wet, and the hotel put petals all over the bed and bathroom but I found it a little over the top and annoying (as a dude). The amenities in the room were nice with a flat screen tv and dvd player (with some dvds to watch). Also, they have this key system, where the key turns on the power to the room, so you can't leave anything in the room to charge or in the fridge to cool while you are out. On the plus side, the breakfasts were awesome! There is a set menu, but all the choices were good. The rooms had free wi-fi and there were some computers near the lobby that guests could use. The hotel location is a little bit out of the city center, but you can easily walk there in a couple minutes. Overall, the hotel is decent value. It is a level up from backpackers/hostels in both quality and price.
As for seeing the temples and general area, the hotel arranged a fantastic guide for us: Tivorn Vun who you can contact directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at +855 12235699 or 012 235699 inside Cambodia. He was a great guide and he had some personality as well, telling jokes and being super friendly.
