“Golden Temple Hotel wow!!”
Reviewed 21 January 2011

I think this is the hotel we all wish we could stay at forever! The staff are amazing, they know your name the minute you walk in, and form then on it is just incredible, if you look up for just a minute there is a staff memeber there delivering a free cup of iced tea or a platter of fruit - complements of the hotel. Then your bed is decorated with flower petals in the most beautiful way, [we had this done twice wow!!] The food is great and so is the cooking school, great fun and very informative - even if you are a complete beginner they are able to show you the ropes in a most entertaining and delicous way! Pool and rooms are spectacular and what can one say about the staff.....!! From Richard, Bopha, Leak and the night receptionist to the waiters, chefs in the kitchen to the massage ladies and the wonderful room attendants,and the cleaning lady who spent a whole day scrubbing round the pool and was still smiling when she finished!!, they are all so friendly and kind. When we left everyone came to say goodbye - when does that ever happen!! [except when you leave home to go on holidays!! ]
We will be back and very soon.................

This hotel has been amazing. We only stayed two nights and wish we had more time to enjoy the relaxing beauty of the place. On arrival we were greeted with warm smiles and great service. Our room was available straight away and the decorations on the bed (done with flower petals) were amazing. The rooms are a nice size and have everything you need. My only gripe is the design of the bathrooms (the water from the shower ends up wetting the whole bathroom floor and makes quite a mess) but this is minor when considering the effort this hotel goes to.

We were welcomed with a complimentary drink and some snacks. We then booked in for a complimentary 1 hr massage each at the hotel spa. On arrival to the pool area for a swim we were brought a complimentary light lunch (don't know if this is standard but it was delicious!)

The pool area is worth some time. It's well laid out and the decor generally around the hotel is excellent and very modern. The tiles around the pool can be a little slippery so watch your step. The staff here are always willing to help out. If anything they are just too eager to please ... but this can't be a bad thing. They have made our stay very enjoyable. Make use of the restaurant for dinners too if you don't want to venture out. The food is good and very reasonably priced. Internet access is easy with free wi-fi and 8 computers set up in the reception area.

We booked this hotel after reading others reviews on this site and we sure are happy we did. An excellent choice when staying in Siem Reap.

I had picked our hotel on Agoda.com because it was relatively cheap ($45) and had received great reviews (rare). We were bowled over when we arrived. First there was a great drink and sticky rice (they called it cake) steamed in banana leaves. Then after a long day at the temples (we left the hotel at 5AM to catch the sunrise at Angkor Wat), we were relaxing by the pool (stunning area) and the staff wanted to know if we’d like to try some Cambodian food. They then proceeded to bring us a huge meal to eat (vegetarian, for me) all complimentary. Oh, and they also included 2 massages to relax our tired muscles. Our room was amazing, too. The bed was covered in this intricate flower design (I originally thought it was a pattern on the duvet, but it was actually real flowers). So we can’t say enough about the Golden Temple Hotel.

We stayed at the Golden Temple Hotel for three days and we had a truly memorable and enjoyable experience. We arrived in Siem Reap by the Mekong Express bus from Phnom Penh and the tuk-tuk driver sent by the hotel was there promptly to pick us up. When we reached the hotel we were greeted by the staff, who was very friendly and helpful. The welcome drink is particularly refreshing and the khmer cake with the sugared peanuts were a good combination. We were offered a complimentary massage, which was an excellent addition to our trip, and a chance to try out the Khmer massage. The staff also recommends the different sightseeing options that can be done given the number of days you stay at Siem Reap which is extremely nice on their part. The rooms were very well done (although, the orange maybe a bit of an overdose - it overall fits well with the theme). All the rooms overlook the pool. The interiors are very Angkor carving/sculpture theme, which adds on to the whole experience. The icing on the cake is that the location of the hotel is perfect to walk down to the famous Pub Street and the Night Market. Also it is only about 20-25 minutes to the main Angkor attractions by tuk tuk. Great value for money is just another aspect combined with great service! Two things about the service which i found particularly impressive - 1. We had a flight at 7:50 am and we were getting a bit late to go down, so we got a call from the reception to make sure we are up and getting ready to leave to the airport. 2. We just got an email from them, thanking us for staying there, making us feel nicer about the whole experience! Thank you Golden Temple Hotel for this very comfortable stay!

The hotel is ideally situated with just five mins walk to the old market. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. They even provide DVDs of the history of Angkor - a good supplement for those who wish to know more.
And the staff is excellent. They know you by name; goes out of their way to sort things out for you when things go wrong. There is always a smile on their faces...

This place is amazing in terms of its staff, service and decor. The best things about it are the staff are here to help you with everything and anything. In fact I am sad to leave the place. They helped teach me Khmer language and gave me a great insight into local life.

The pool, restaurant, reception areas are incredibly beautful and should be featured in an interior design magazine.

The complementary massage, arrival drink, snacks and endless cups of tea really make this place extra special.

Thank you to Leahkanah, Tavi, Katna, Nary, Vichair, Leah and Kim San for their personal approachable and professional service.
These guys ROCK.

My fiancee and I stayed at the Golden Temple for four nights in January 2011. The hotel staff's service was unsurpassed by any other hotel I have stayed at - they go out of their way to make you feel looked after. The hotel is very new, neat, clean and tidy, and it is located very close to the river, market and pub street - everything is within a 5 minute walk. The two biggest negatives were: 1.) the tiles around the pool are very slippery when wet and a number of people slipped and feel; 2.) the staff was unable to tell me how much an international call to Canada was - but it turned out the cost was only $0.20 / minute. Overall, I would gladly stay at the hotel again, and would recommend it to friends and family.
