We stayed at the golden Banana for four nights in early May and couldn't recommend it more highly as fantastic value for money. We stayed in one of the B&B rooms. The room was basic (it didn't have a TV or fridge) but was spacious and clean and set in a lovely garden setting. The free wifi connection worked perfectly in our room. To be able to use the pool at the end of a hot day of temple visiting was so welcome. It was also good to hang out at the bar and meet some of the fellow travelers. The free breakfast was really very good and you could top up with extra items for a small charge if you were still hungry. We would definately recommend sourcing your tuk tuk driver through the hotel to take you on temple tours. We found our driver excelent and he spoke good English and doubled as our tour guide (although he wasn't allowed to enter the temples with us). The hotel also organised our taxi to the Thai border which also turned out to be excellent. The friendly staff at the hotel reception were always willing to help out. Overall we would definately recomend staying at the Golden Banana. One tip we would give if you are visiting Siem Reap is to take a can of mosi spray with you (or buy one there). Although the hotel sprays the rooms each night, it was great to be able to deal to any others that came into the room.
