The first impression you get when you enter the hotel is that you're in a laid back luxurious Cambodian oasis. Which is actually one of Belmond's most notorious characteristics all around the world.
The fact that they menage to keep the local influences and add a touch of rustic luxury, making it all beautiful and comfortable makes this place really special. Public areas are beautiful and the pool is one of the most incredible ones I've ever seen - I even skipped an afternoon of tours just to spend some time laying there.
Rooms are very big, beautiful and provide a great hideaway after a whole day climbing temples. Excellent bed and linens, great big tub with shower and great amenities. The ones on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool are the best choice!
Breakfast was really good as was the food on the other restaurants - very affordable by the way, despite the hotel's 5 stars.
Location wise you couldn't ask for more. Very central, easy access to everywhere, by the river that cuts the city center.
It was one of my favorite hotels during a trip to Southeast Asia. Definitely worth it!
