We have just stayed for 3nts and had a lovely time. The room, service, food and hotel were really good. The mobile phone to take out is very useful, and the free tuk tuk into town is a bonus. Would definitely stay again. We took the hotel's paid tours of temples in the day and at sunrise and the service was excellent. Good English and safe driving. Food was good mix of cambodian and international.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bunwin hotel. From the greeting at the airport to the ice cold and very refreshing welcome drink in a 40degree heat to the very accomodating staff: everything was great. Its a hotel with personality that always has the customer in mind. The restaurant is well worth trying and the pool area is great. The room we had was spacious, clean, slightly strange layout and the sheets had small rips in them. But that didnt actually bother me in the slightest since there are few places that makes you feel so at home like the Bunwin did. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends.

Spent a whole week in the Moon Boutique in Siem Reap, and had a wonderful stay. Staff, service, room, environment, size of the hotel, swimming pool, all were excellent. I liked the the fact that the hotel has personality, cambodian style, and not too modern or international. The availibility of free tuktuk is great, location slightly apart is great and clever. No need to change anything. Stay authentic. Thanks a lot. I had a wonderful time.

Don't let the bumpy dirt approach road, or the fact that it appears to be taking you into the backstreets of a dingy village, put you off - the Bunwin Boutique Hotel is truly a hidden gem!

Step through the gates and into reception and you'll be met by some of the friendliest, sweetest staff of any hotel we stayed at in Cambodia. As soon as we arrived, they ensured they knew how to say our names and which order they went in (they obviously didn't want to call us by our surnames, but to start with they weren't sure which was which!). One of the reception girls throughout the day - Seangdy - greeted us by name every morning as we came to breakfast. Whenever we went out for the day or returned to the hotel, if Seangdy was there we were consistently greeted with a graceful formality and a big, beaming smile All the Bunwin staff were only too happy to help. Nothing was too much trouble for them. As with most places in Cambodia, the service may not be quite as fast or quite as proactive as you might expect it to be at home, but we quickly came to realise that this is simply the Cambodian way. Don't get me wrong - the level of service we received at Bunwin was amongst the best we experienced in Cambodia and is far from shabby.

Behind the main reception is the gorgeous pool area, surrounded by about 12 pretty upmarket bungalows. As there were three of us, we had one of the larger suites off the right of the pool and the room was stunning. The main room was enormous, with a beautiful polished concrete floor, a bath right by the window overlooking the pool, two very comfortable Queen beds and a seating area. Housekeeping brought the room back to an absolutely immaculate state every day, though we noted - again, as with many places in Cambodia - that housekeeping won't go near your room unless you specifically put the sign on the door to say you want your room made up. No big deal - just something to get used to.

The Western breakfast is also a little hit-and-miss. It was nice that it was included and so convenient before heading out for the day, but some of the selections - and the way they're served - are just a tiny bit odd. Again, not bad by any stretch, just another case of not being what we're used to I guess.

Bunwin seems to have its own 'fleet' of tuk-tuk drivers and the hotel's only about a five minute tuk-tuk ride from Siem Reap's party central - Pub Street, the Old Market and the Night Markets. Whenever you take a tuk-tuk into town at night, they give you a funny old Nokia (still in high rotation in Cambodia!) to take with you, so you can call them when you're ready for the tuk-tuk to come back and collect you. If there aren't any tuk-tuks available, one of the reception staff will jump into the hilarious old Jeep - no doors, no windows, no seatbelts, seats that would make a bouncy castle blush and original gear stick replaced with what looks like a funny old automatic transmission from a 1980s Toyota! It's so worth it just for the rush of chugging along in an old Jeep!

By tuk-tuk from Bunwin, it's about a 15-20 minute ride to the main entrance to the Angkor Conservation Area.

A tuk-tuk driver for the day shouldn't set you back any more than $15. He'll take you wherever you want to go (or wherever he wants to take you if you've no plan in mind) and wait for you to come out of each temple; typically you'll either come out of a temple and find your tuk-tuk driver sleeping on the back seat of his tuk-tuk, or hanging with his tuk-tuk driver mates - there are generally hoards of them waiting outside the bigger temples.

Bunwin's only about two minutes by tuk-tuk to Charles de Gaulle Road and from there you can really go as far as you want without ever running out of temples to see. By bicycle we went about 35km from that point before the temples had started to thin out and there became various road options to choose, rather than just following the one we were on. A 70km round trip is reasonably easy to do - it's virtually flat the whole way, and the road lies beneath a canopy of trees, so eve in the heat it's a reasonably easy ride.

Saying all of that, it was the greatest thing at the end of each of our three days in Siem Reap to be able to come back to Bunwin, have a few Angkor or Cambodia cans and fall into that beautiful pool.

If you're going to be in Siem Reap and you'd be appreciative of staying somewhere that's not quite in the thick it, but at the same time not really very far from anything, you'd do well to consider Bunwin as one of your accommodation options.

Room Tip: I suspect all the rooms are reasonably similar, but if you need enough room for more than just one couple to be comfortable, make sure you tell them when you book that you want a larger suite.
