They did not pick us up from the airport which was disappointing. We booked directly with the hotel and had a confirmation number and email. They lost our booking. It took 2 hours to resolve the missing booking. Frustrating. They did provide a shuttle service to the bus station at the end of our stay.
Dinning - The english menu translation is incorrect for a number of the items (at least by Canadian standards). Double check before ordering. Breakfast was really good. Had a bad room service experience.
Good size. The bed was hard, but comfortable. CLEAN. Safe worked well.
Toilet seat was stained horribly, but clean.
Typical shower: Warm, hot, scalding, hot, scalding, hot., etc...
Shared the room with two noisy lizards for 3 nights.
Laundry at hotel is expensive (ex. $1 US for underwear, $3.5 US for a shirt) - in town, $2 per kg.
Extra TP ($5 US for one roll),
Local phone calls are $0.50 per minute.
Nice pool, but the sides are very rough. Be careful.
Staff is polite and friendly, but incompetent at times.
Tuk tuk mafia - Tuk tuks outside the hotel will cost more than tuk tuk's in Siem Reap. They have a little cartel going, but there are plenty of tuk tuks going by the hotel so you don't have to use them. Negiotate hard and walk away to get consistently better prices. Siem Reap should cost $1-2. Flag down an empty tuk tuk coming back from Angkor for the $1 fare.
The best restaurants are in Siem Reap on Pub Street or Pub Street Alley. Very limited selection of restaurants in walking distance of the hotel.
