Service was excellent from the moment we were picked up by the tuk tuk driver from Giant Ibis bus station. All the staff were very friendly, especially Mr. Phal at reception, as in greeting me with "Heeyyyyyy!!" every time I walk into the lobby and then proceeding to chat for the next half hour! Expect to get a cold wet towel, a glass of water, and banana chips every time you walk in!
We had a large room on the 3rd floor overlooking NH6 towards Siem Reap centre. The room is very clean and comfortable, A/C powerful enough to cool the room within a few minutes. Rooms were made twice a day, with the second time in early evening. The bedtime stories we got every night was a nice touch.
Breakfast is complimentary and made to order, and they are fantastic. There is also unlimited coffee, tea, fruits, and snacks in the lobby available 24/7. For one night where we didn't feel like hitting the town, we tried the 3-course Khmer set dinner from the restaurant, which was also quite good.
The hotel booked us to a tuk tuk driver, Mr. Sa Rouen, whom we used for all of our travels. He always managed to accomodate my picky demands, provides free cold bottled water, and rates are reasonable and also negotiable. His English is good, and you can ask him for advice on restaurants or places to visit.
If I have to pick a bone to pick, it would be the location away from town centre. It's only 5 mins away by tuk tuk, which is provided free of charge in the evening, which is just fine for us. But if you are the spontaneous bar hopping type, you may want to find a place closer to Pub St.
The in room wi-fi is not very reliable, but that seems to be case with most places in Cambodia. Signal is good in the lobby though, and they also have public computers for everyone.
At the end, the cherry on the cake was a souvenir scarf when I checked out. Thanks for making my stay in Siem Reap!
