In our whole South East Asian travels, the Bunwin was hands-down the best place that we stayed. We always felt great coming back to the hotel at the end of the day, and were really sad to leave.
As others have said, it's situated at the end of a long, dusty road, but it's worth the bumpy ride. Hotel rooms are enormous, with a bath, shower and large TV. We did find hot water to be quite limited - not really an issue, unless to people want to shower one after another. Drinking water was replaced daily, and basic toiletries were provided. Because we stayed for four nights, we also received a complimentary khmer massage, which was fantastic.
The complimentary tuk-tuk is fantastic, and makes getting around the city simple and easy. Give the guys a buzz on the old nokia phone, and they'll be there in ten minuets to pick you up.
Breakfast was great, with a bread basket (including pastries), as well as a small selection of fruit and a choice from a long menu, which includes both western and asian options. We ate at the hotel on two nights, and found the food to be very tasty, though some dishes were quite spicy (which is fine, except we weren't warned at all!). The cocktail list is extensive, cheap, and can't be resisted at happy hour.
It's the staff that really make the place though - warm, genuine and friendly, they were always a pleasure to be around. We would be greeted by name on our return to the hotel, which was awesome, and they were always happy to share a laugh or two at the bar. Some of the best people we met on our entire travels worked at this hotel, and we would come back in a heartbeat. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. You HAVE to stay here.
