There is nothing I can fault for this hotel. I loved it. Even the bathtub that so many people seem to mention. If your biggest gripe is the style of the tub, you're doing alright.
The location is perfect, the facilities are perfect, the room is spacious, the service is fantastic, the breakfast is great, and the service is fantastic. I hemmed and hawed about spending extra money to stay here but I'm very happy I did. My trip to Angkor Wat was fantastic and it was great to come back to a place like this for a little rest and respite from the sweltering heat.
Upon arrival we were given a welcome drink, some cool lemongrass scented towels and were able to just sit at a table while they brought everything to us for check in. Additionally, we got a complimentary room upgrade. I heard birds but never any street noise at night. It was a very comfortable hotel room where they cleaned the room twice and brought us a treat each night. (All the sweets and pastries are awesome, btw.)
Since we were going to get up around 4:30 the next morning we had arranged for them to provide us with a breakfast on the go as opposed to the breakfast in the restaurant. Included was fresh juice, fresh fruit, pastries, bread, jam. It was perfect.
The pool is fantastic.
I concur with the other 5 star ratings of this hotel. A great place to stay.
p.s. I didn't realize this until we were about to leave but the key fob is shaped like a lingam.
