I spent over a week here and it was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The manager, Mr Lucky, was a fantastic host. Easy going and polite, helpful and pleasant to chat to. To make things simple I'll break it down to all the major concerns people usually have.
The rooms are simple but the beds are comfortable and clean. The rooms have fully working air-conditioning, and the staff give you mosquito candles to chase the bugs away. Clean bedding and fluffy towels, they even provide soaps and razors. They have a restaurant that serves simple food, but cheap and quite tasty. Private showers are clean, but no bathtubs, and no pool unfortunately. Not a big deal though, Mr Lucky will tell you which hotels etc have pools you can visit for free so long as you buy a drink there.
The place also rents bicycles FOR FREE. And they are in really good condition.
They also have a computer room where you can access the internet. The internet here was insanely fast compared to what I'd being experiencing in the surrounding area, and I was easily able to stream series online.
Outstandingly friendly staff. Incredibly helpful. The man who runs it, Mr Lucky, picks you up from the airport and offers his advice whenever you need it. They lock up the premises at night but have someone sleeping near the door to unlock it at any time, in case you decide to go party.
The Place itself is slightly hidden, down an alley. The alley itself is a bit decrepit, but once you get t the gates you will see that it's misrepresented. As far as noise goes, the venue is quite secluded despite being walking distance from the local club and pub scene. They are very central with regards to the restaurants, and easy access to roads which have bike-taxis and tuk-tuks. If you plan to go out this spot is the ideal distance.
We paid substantially less than some friends at a nearby B&B and they complained constantly. The quality you receive is well worth the price, and if you contact them in advance you can negotiate a reduced price, especially if you stay for long (like a week or more).
***The staff are really accommodating. One night a friend brought home a lady, and they quiclkly set up a room for him to go share with her, at 2am. However, not sure what the story is with "ladies of the night," so if that's your goal, I don't think this is the place for you.
***The staff also organised our ours of Ankor Wat through family, and so we got reduced prices, and they organised for the kitchen staff to wake up early and cook breakfast for us (5am) so that we could have a meal before we watched the sunrise at the Temples.
All in all it was a great place to stay. I've sent several friends not using this app, and they've all said the same. Book it. Book it now. Stop looking. This is the one
