Hotel is only 5 minutes from the airport. We were met at the hotel by a warm and friendly reception manager. We found the rooms to be clean and spacious, although we needed to run the shower for some minutes before it reached a temperature that wasn't to hot or cold. A unique experience was the reception traditional Cambodian musician who started playing at 07:00am. The hotel facilities were excellent, the staff courteous and friendly.The only negative point we can make is the breakfast, tea and coffee were served tepid. To get to Pub Street we found tuk tuk types always available outside the hotel. Pub Street itself had plenty of lively bars and good restaurants. We made the mistake of changing £20 into Riel, and was presented with a stack of notes, we promptly changed this back into US $'s, which is the favoured currency. We hired the same taxi driver (Mr Yam) who picked us up form the airport, for our tours of Angkor Wat. He also arranged an offical Angkor Wat tour guide (Mr Thong) to accompany us for our two day tour. Day one, we visited Angkor Wat and the following day we visited Banteay Srei, the Landmine Museum and then returned to our hotel at 1400. We were then picked up at 1600 to be taken to Tonle Sap lake, to see how the Vietnamese floating village lived and watch the sunset over the lake. Overall we found the people of Siem Reap refelcted the hotel staff, warm, friendly, and helpful. We will definately return.
