“Great hotel and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Fantastic hotel with great staff. I stayed here recently for 3 nights. As a solo traveller it was very nice to have someone to talk with after returning from my trips to visit the temples. Noth and Chantou and the other reception staff made me feel very welcome.

The location was good in that it was close to Pub Street and the night market. The road to walk back to the hotel was a little dark, this did not bother me, however, it may bother other people.

The room was fine and I was more than happy with it for the price that I paid.

There was a free massage and the hotel staff helped to pick tours.

The internet was also excellent throughout the hotel and there was also free internet on pc's within the reception area.

The food in the restaurant was also fairly good.

Overall I was delighted with my stay here, I have paid much more money to stay in places that have been no where near as good.

This place is amazing!!!! Since the minute you get there you have a great experience. They welcome you with a nice drink and snacks while they explain everything about your stay. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff is great! They are all really kind and helpful, there was not a single time they didn't greet us with a smile. The location is great too... Very near the Old and Night Markets and the Pub Street. Our room included breakfast and a complementary 1 hour massage which was really nice! We had a great stay there! If we had to complain about something would be the restaurant. The staff there are great but they tend to take a while to serve your order, not a big deal just keep it in mind if you have a tight schedule. Anyway, this is a great place to stay!!!

Wow what a welcome we got when we arrived.... Loads of information (maybe a little too much after a long car journey) but all can be forgiven because the staff here are just so friendly... I wanted to take them all home, they are so sweet and work really well together as a team! We also got a welcome drink and snack which was very tasty.

The rooms were large and comfortable however I wasn't too keen on the 'towel' style bed sheet but it wouldn't put me off recommending this place. The other downside to this hotel is that it is right by a school so quite noisy but helps you get up for your day of sight seeing. I also feel the price could include breakfast in line with most of the other hotels we stayed in, however the price does include a 1 hour massage which was a nice treat after a day at the temples.

Overall I would stay here again for the service alone!

Room Tip: Maybe a room on the right side, away from the school.

The Golden Butterfly Villa in is an excellent choice for visiting Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor Wat. The Guest House is located very close (5 minutes walking distance) from the restaurants and bars on Pub Street yet it is on a quiet cul-de-sac. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They can arrange for inexpensive tuk-tuks (or cars) to visit the temples and also provide free bicycles for guests
Plus Points:
Air Conditioning
Very Clean
Good Beds
Hot Showers
Save Deposit Box in Room
Free Bicycles
One free massage per stay!
Friendly Service
Good (and inexpensive) Breakfast
Free Coffee, Tea and Bananas anytime

Minus Points: None!

Room Tip: We liked our front-facing room (East, sunrise!).

This hotel is a complete surprise, the most gorgeous looking building and the staff are exceptionally helpful and charming. We had a lovely stay here, with everything arranged for us by the hotel staff. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. We travelled with our two children and we had separate rooms - perfect.

Room Tip: We had a room with a balcony which was great, the kids had a regular room without a balcony which wa...

Loved our stay at the Golden Butterfly Villa! You've read the reviews, this place is great, so I will cut straight to the chase...

1)Service, service service. The staff is amazing. They learn your names, they ride with you to the airport when you had to go pick up lost luggage, and they ship you items when you leave them in the safe. 5 star service! oh, and complimentary 1 hr massage :-)

2) Location is awesome- literally 2 mins from main road where everything is happening. Close to all restaurants and pub street. Laundry service right on the corner $1 for 1kg of clothes-- done the next day.

3) Rooms are the perfect size. Includes safe, air con, tv. The ONLY negative I have about this place is there was no hot water when we took showers. I haven't read many people mention this, but it did kinda suck. Maybe all hotels in the area have this issue and it is a given....?

4) Food is good and convenient. Always get the local breakfast vs western-so good. Khmer curry was delish too. They give you a free picnic lunch (pastries) for you to take to the temples which is very nice.

There is a school next door and the kids just sing and sing and sing all day (learning???) Not a problem if you are out and about during the day like us.

This place rocks-book now :-)
