Skyway Hotel is a good, safe, clean, cheap option in Siem Reap. The staff are genuinely kind and helpful people. Their tuk-tuk drivers are good, and Mr. Mao is wonderful. Referals for outsourced staff such as Angkor guides are excellent. For the most part everyone on the desk staff has good serviceable English, and other languages, and are eager to keep improving. Skyway Hotel staff are honorable. I am a woman traveling alone in SE Asia and I felt my person and my things were always secure.
I have been traveling in SE Asia for the last 3 months and I understand what $25 will buy you, and what it won't in a developing nation. It has been my experience that on-line reviewers can be unrealistic. This is a statement from someone who in a bit of a clean freak.
A note about cleanliness:
Overall lobby, restaurant area seem very clean but decor is dated. My non-descript funky, bare room was clean for a basic hotel room but could have used a serious scrub down, paint job.
The bathroom had a little mold, but less than average SE Asian rooms. I am quite picky, but also realistic. I have stayed in hotels 5x the price with 5x the dirt, mold. Sheets were good, towels need refreshing. Bed was fine, had mattress protector but not a mattress pad which I recommend.
This hotel is situated on a bit of a miracle mile of sorts. This is not quaint colonial old town. That is just fine. It is a five minute tuk-tuk to town or a 15 minute walk past some very interesting everyday business - auto repair, cell phone sales, local bakeries, local fruit market, gas stations - where locals are living their lives - which I find interesting. These are places of great opportuninty to chat up the locals. You will not find silk shops or gelato stands - those are in town.
Excellent, free wi-fi in rooms, good cable, good AC.
If you are a realistic traveller on a limited budget and want a trustworthy, informative staff to help you on your journey, then I can recommend Skyway Hotel to you. If you have a thicker wallet and higher standards than a basic hotel, then keep looking. But you will be hard pressed to find a kinder staff.
