Don't second guess yourself or the rave reviews, just book a room here.
It was our third trip back to Siem Reap and the hotel we had previously stayed was being renovated which was a disappointment so we needed to find someplace else. My son had stayed here because of the great reviews on TA and he said it was a highlight of his trip to Asia.
As we were booking for three couples, with one of these joining us a little later, it was important to us to keep in touch with Golden Temple with our travel arrangements and requests. From our very first contact with our reservations until our final (sadly) farewell, the service is exceptional. Well trained, friendly service across the board.
We relaxed in the afternoon by the pool as it was hot and steamy after a morning of visiting Temples. Jugs of cocktails for only $8 with a free T-shirt (nice gifts for family back home so more cocktails had to be ordered but of course, drinking responsibly) and the VIP bonus if you book direct with the hotel is excellent! Free massage, Khmer BBQ, Pickup Service and Picnic Lunch to name a few.
The rooms are lovely, great location, wonderful staff.... what more do you want?More
