We were booked here for 4 nights in May 2012 but only stayed for 1 - I think that says it all really.
The room was ok but I wouldn't go any better than that. There was a lot of noise from the roller skating rink as other reviewers have found. The bathroom was extremely basic.
Then there was a stupid misunderstanding with the tuktuk driver who came to get us from the airport, who expected us to use him on every day of our stay in Siem Reap. Apparently the hotel "should have told us" that this was the deal - well they didn't, nothing of the kind was said to us, and we didn't even want a tuk tuk every day of our stay. So that caused a stupid unnecessary argument.
$20 was a low price to pay for a room, but there was better to be had in Siem Reap for this price. Breakfast was also extra. (We moved to Motherhome Guesthouse instead for the rest of our stay, which was the same price, 5 times nicer and included breakfast).
The owner at Shadow of Angkor did genuinely seem very concerned when we checked out earlier than planned, and wanted to understand what had gone wrong. I think our complaints were taken on board. But the bottom line is there is better accommodation available in Siem Reap for the same price.
