Stayed here for four nights while visiting Angkor Wat. The hotel is decently located, a 15-20 minute walk to the downtown 'pub street' area of Siem Reap on a quiet street just off the main road from the airport. The hotel will arrange free airport pickup, but you'll have to find your own way back there. The location is definitely not central, though that may be a good thing as I would think the central hotels would be very noisy.
By tuktuk, it's a short 5 minute ride into the city. There are usually tuktuks hanging around the hotel (some wearing hotel shirts), otherwise, you can walk to the main street. Tuktuk rides around town will cost either $1 or $2USD depending on the driver and how much you feel like negotiating. Make sure to take lots of $1USD bills...
The hotel is well located for temple hopping around Angkor Wat. My suggestion is to book a tuktuk or car+driver for the duration of stay to tour the temples (You would have to be mad to bike in that heat). They'll meet you each morning, and then you can explore places at your own pace. Remember to pick up some water and snacks for the day (a bunch of mini-bananas makes a great snack pack for the day!). The tourist lunch stop in Angkor Thom was surprisingly good!
The rooms appear to be aging, but are kept clean and in pretty good shape. The bed was reasonably comfortable (not too hard which is often the case in SE Asia). Rooms include a mini-fridge which is great for keeping your drinks cool. AC worked well took. The bathroom had a tub and shower with ok water pressure. The hotel provides daily bottled water, and more can be purchased from nearby grocery stores.
The staff were generally very friendly - always greeting us with cold towels when we arrived back out of the heat. The restaurant provided a tasty breakfast (especially the local, Chinese and Vietnamese food), though lunch was overpriced and not very good. There are lots of good restaurants in town, so suggest heading there for most meals.
The breakfast from the restaurant was pretty good, though we found lunch to be overpriced. There are several good places to eat in town, so I recommend heading there for most meals.
The hotel had a great looking pool in the back - didn't get around to using it, but would have liked to.
Overall, great value - would stay there again!
