Reviewed 9 April 2014

We spent just the one night here recently. The room was nice, lovely little personal touches, however the aircon is very loud! The food seemed good, and the staff were helpful. We only found one pool, and judging by the pictures there was another one somewhere!?

Dear Bodge82,

Thank you for your positive feedback.
A pity you guys didn't had more time to spend to fully discover Siem Reap and to enjoy our boutique hotel a bit longer.
We checked the air-con in the room you stayed, and indeed it was loud because of the fan that was rotating against the cover. This was simply fixed in a second.
Unfortunately our staff was not informed about this inconvenience so we couldn't take immediate action to solve it.
There are two pools in both properties we own, we have one at the Golden Banana Boutique Hotel by Rambutan (the one you stayed in) and an other (bigger) one at the Golden Banana Boutique Resort by Rambutan. All our guests are free to use all facilities in both resorts at any time.
Just ask our staff where the other one is located, they will be more than happy to guide you there.

We are looking forward to welcome you again.

With best regards,
Tommy

Great location- right near the giant night market but located on a quiet street w no traffic or noise. Lots of room (narrow stairs) as it is an upstairs bedroom/bathroom w a downstairs sitting area. Nice breakfast and plenty of places to get laundry done or rent bikes within a few blocks.

We stayed for two night in one of the first floor rooms at the Golden Banana. The service was very professional although sometimes the staff were a little too timid. The room was lovely (in particular the shower), the pool very relaxing after a long day at the temples and in all it felt like a little oasis in the centre of Siem Reap (easy access to the markets and pub street).

{I accidentally wrote this same review on Golden Banana's larger, next door location, and want to make sure that this location gets the accolades}

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights, and although we were ready to leave the oppressive heat of Siem Reap at the end of our stay, we were not ready to leave the Golden Banana. Someone further down in the comments named it an oasis and that is exactly what Golden Banana is.

First off, the staff were remarkable. From the moment we stumbled through the gate, travel-weary, they exhibited to us some of the most incredible hospitality we've ever experienced. They made us feel completely at home. They were warm, friendly, quick to laugh and smile, and so accommodating. Our room was beautiful, cool, and cozy. The grounds were breathtaking and beautifully designed, but not in a way that stood out in awkward stark contrast to the surroundings and feel of Siem Reap. The food was delicious. There are lots of great places in SR, which is an easy 5 minute walk, but we found ourselves preferring to stay at GB for most snacks and meals because it was just that good and we felt so comfortable there. The drinks were also amazing.

Bottom line: we loved Golden Banana so much we want to shout it from mountaintops. If we made more money and could afford the flights to Cambodia we would be back tomorrow in a heartbeat. Truly a magical place.

The Golden Banana Boutique was the perfect stay. The location is great, only a 10 min walk to the downtown area with markets, restaurants, and bars. The Boutique itself was quiet and private. The food was excellent and the service was perfect. The staff was so helpful and friendly. They helped me book tours and tour guides. Anything I needed was taken care of. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I would definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in February. As soon as we got to the hotel, the staff was very nice and attentive. Our room was amazing. The hotel has so much charm. Our room was so unique and beautiful. The room was clean. There was an upstairs room with a balcony which was very cute. The hotel is close to the main area in town, just a 5 min walk. The staff is helpful in providing you with any tours to Angkor Wat, or any information regarding Siem Reap, such as the Cambodian Circus.The food at the hotel was very good. I regret not being able to stay longer. Besides the good location and beautiful hotel, the staff just made the stay all that more pleasant. We really felt like we were taken care of. They were so friendly and professional, always with a nice smile. I would definitely go back!

We checked into the GB on Monday and stayed for 5 nights. The hotel is made up of villas which are set around a beautiful pool with waterfall. If you want a sterile room in a soulless modern hotel then GB is not for you. We really loved the white villas with there red paintwork, they were homely with seating, tv etc downstairs as well as a balcony complete with swinging seat and bedroom and en suite upstairs. It just has everything you would want in a location with is a 5 min walk from the centre of SR. But what really made are stay here so enjoyable are the staff from Tommy the manager to the reception staff and cleaners, everyone was so friendly and helpful always going that extra mile with a smile to make sure you enjoyed your stay. we have to give a special mention to Thearom and Phary who we on duty for most of our time here and always greeted up with a smile.
