I can only echo the comments of the last few reviews before mine.
Seriously, - at US$25 a night, WITH a nice pool, this place was the cheapest we stayed in several weeks touring Asia - mostly in mid price hotels/resorts with pools, and as good as a $60 one in Phnom Penh that is ranked near the top there on T.A.
Actually better than we expected, and we thought we'd "beaten the system" with this good choice booked from T.A. reviews.
We really enjoyed the staff, the food was good. Breakfasts are fine, other meals were small portions, BUT, were very cheap - 2/3rds the price of typical restos around Pub Street area. And they were all really nice food. We actually chose lunch here twice rather than staying in town, and 2 dinners in-house when we were a bit tired.
Free tuktuks into town is helpful - it's 5 - 7 minutes to Pub Street, museums or Phare Circus etc
The bar/restaurant staff are very friendly, the ice-smoothies addictive.
The reception staff are all incredibly helpful. Their laundry service is the "by weight" type, cheap, and I asked for a cold wash of one of my wife's dresses after a resort had shrunk 2 others with hot wash and iron. It came back perfect.
They must be THE most organised small hotel in Siem Reap. Their room folder is very good, the alphabetic list of Q & A is 6 pages - never seen one so useful even in large 4 star hotels.
Lastly, they have tame TukTuk drivers there or outside all the time, and a fixed price chart in the room folder for all main Angkor tour options and other tours.
We used "Sattra" for 2 days as he was so good. His English a little hard to catch at times, but adequate, and he even carried near frozen bottles of water for us the 2nd day. - We tipped him day one $4 above the $16 rate for our tour, and we reckon he used half of it to buy free water for us for day 2.
He also came along as free guide when we did the floating village tour.
The pool is as nice as it looks. A tad cool for my preference, my wife thought it perfect.
The only downside is that the narrow lane it is in "Street 6" is now quite busy.
The restaurant bar are at front of the hotel, so you get a fair bit of noise, but no worse than most town / roadside restaurants. They have cunningly hidden the road with plantings and screens, so you feel like you're cocooned.
Oh, one other tiny downside. Their 3 free PCs need software updating, and one seems to overheat and shut down occasionally.
My wife and I agreed it is just great.
