We stayed at Lotus Lodge for 4 nights. We had high expectations based on the reviews we had read. We were highly disappointed when we got our room. The room is basic and would benefit from some renovations. Our main issue was the AC which was barely able to cool down the room after being on for 7h+. The bed wasn't very comfortable. The mattress is only a semi-dense foam mattress which, with time, has created two valleys from previous sleepers where you always end up rolling back in. The sheets were stained. The bathroom was smelly, old, and somewhat dirty. The hot water worked good but the shower had no pressure. The wifi worked well on 1 of our 2 devices. Housekeeping will clean your room daily if you leave the key at reception, which we weren't informed of. The food was ok and prices were similar to what you'll pay in town (khmer food way better than western dishes). The hotel is located quite far from the city centre (5 minute tuktuk ride) down a small dirt road. It felt safe but there is no restaurant or store within walking distance. The hotel offers one free one way shuttle per day to the city centre which reduces the transportation cost. All tuktuk drivers will ask 3$ for the ride back but it should not be more than 2$. One the positive side, the staff is friendly and helpful. However, they aren't very flexible in the types of tours they offer to the temples and only book buses with a few companies (to Bangkok). We had an amazing tuktuk driver (Richard!) who drove use around the temples. In the end, there has to be something better for a similar price.
