We stayed here for 8 nights as a couple and part of a tour group in Dec 2012. The rooms are decently sized and clean, and we have a room overlooking the pool which was pleasant. When we were there, we understand this hotel caters to tour groups (wherein we are one of them), and business has expanded (they have added a new wing), yet the staff remains attentive and friendly, Breakfast spread is not sumptuous but adequate. The pool provides great reprieve especially after a long hot day exploring the temples or trekking the jungles. Massage/spa is however disappointing, the masseuse we have (on 2 occasions) were not up to mark. Air-conditioning in the hotel overall and room was good. Location is also adequate, it is 10-15 min from the Airport, and 10-15min to the old market place (akin town centre) and 10-15 min to Angkor Wat temples. This is not a luxe hotel, but if you are looking for a clean no nonsense air-conditioned room with adequate hot water bath/ shower place, at an ok location, this is it.
