We have traveled extensively in Southeast Asia and are pretty discerning as to what makes a great place to stay--- golden temple villa is probably the best value we have seen on this trip. It's not the dirt- cheapest place to stay, but I can't imagine where you'd get more for your money in Siem Reap.
The service is outstanding--- every single staff member treated us with the utmost courtesy and was extremely friendly and helpful.
They have taken what would be your average cramped budget hotel room and turned it into something totally lovely with little touches like Cambodian art, colorful throws on the bed and fresh flowers upon arrival. The bathrooms are by no means new but everything is spotlessly clean and soap and shampoo provided. The rooms are definitely small, but so sweet, and have a dresser and mini fridge. The basic $17 room we wanted was not available our first night so we had to change rooms our second day. The staff facilitated this flawlessly for us while we were sightseeing at Angkor Wat.
Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted with a welcome ice tea drink and cold towels. The atmosphere is lovely and there are shared balconies with comfy chairs to read it, little hammocks and a lovely garden area/restaurant.
This hotel is right off a busy side street, so this is probably where the negative noise complaint reviews come from. We have heard music and traffic, but it never has bothered us and the rooms seem pretty quiet as night.
We booked online and the booking was handled flawlessly and professionally, so I am unsure where these negative reviews come from, but for us, staff have been nothing but totally on the ball with everything.
You won't to find better value for the money anywhere in Siem Reap during high season!
