We found the Golden Temple a near perfect experience. When you arrive you are warmly greeted with a cool, scented towel and iced tea. They then proceed to explain all the free extras they offer: an hour massage, set lunch, breakfast at the temples. It's a little overwhelming.
The pool is beautiful. The breakfast buffet is outstanding. The staff is attentive and very friendly. The tour packages they offer are a bargain.
You are greeted by name every time you return to the hotel.
The rooms are nicely decorated and large. There are lots of god cable stations available. The location is near pub street.
One night the power failed and the hotel cranked up its own generator. With the rest of Siem Reap dark, the Golden Temple was lit up and the AC was going strong.
We had a driver pick us up at the airport and he remained our driver throughout our stay: from pickup to tours to dropping us off for departure. It's a nice touch.
When you leave they give every guest a t-shirt and bed runner/scarf.
We have stayed at nice hotels all over Cambodia and the Golden Temple is at the top of the list. Make your reservations early because this place fills up fast.
