Pros- Very service oriented staff who remembers your name and speaks english very well. Great big pool. Close to night market. Costs $1-2dollars for tuk tuk. Great spa with calming environment and affordable.
Cons- Mosquitoes in room(not sure if it is avoidable tho). Hardest bed I have every slept in my life. Its like sleeping on the floor. Had to ask for extra padding the following night. Only one sink. Bathroom abit dated. Water splashes onto the floor when taking a shower as there is no partition. Meal at the hotel leaves alot to be desired. Definitely go for the pool view as the river view is more like a busy street view with people able to look inside your room from the outside.
Maybe 5 star for Siem Reap standards but not by American standards. Overall a pleasant stay as the friendly staff and warm hospitality of the Cambodian people won me over.
