End February, I spent 5 nights in this hotel.
This hotel has found the perfect solution for me having received the package with the free tuk tuk from 5 am to 10 pm and a free pick-up and return to the airport by car, especially for people who like to move all the time.
We asked to the hotel to find a guide who knows the history of Angkor Wat very well and Mr Sov Sothit made a great job.... he could give an answer to all the questions of my husband (35 dollars/day). I would also like to thank our tuk tuk driver, Mr Bun Thong for his kindness. Moreover, he was a very cautious driver.
The bedroom was nice and you receive in a dispenser: soap, gel shower, shampoo and conditioner. It is the first times a hotel offers you every day fresh fruits: a mango, an apple and small bananas. I really appreciated that. Of course, you had also 2 bottles of water of 950 ml but the temperature was 33 degrees (28 degrees at night).
You receive a 30 minutes complimentary massage. I recommend their massages in comparison with the massages in downtown even in a well-known house. Their prices are quite reasonable: 10 dollars for a traditional Khmer (60 minutes), 14 dollars for relaxing massage and 6 dollars for an ultimo back (30 minutes).
Their breakfast was very good : orange juice, mango juice, croissant, pain perdu, white and brown toasts, banana or chocolate cake, homemade jam, your choice of eggs, bacon, sausage, corn flakes and cereals, homemade yogurt, one smoothie and seasonal fruits (mango, pineapple). The price of this breakfast is 6 dollars but most of the time it is included in your package.
When you leave earlier (for instance for the sunrise), you can ask for a breakfast basket otherwise but you can have your breakfast when you want.
The price of the beverages was reasonable: water 500 ml (1,25 dollar), water 1,5 l (2,50 ml), coca or sprite (1,25 dollar), coca light (1,75 dollar).
My only concern was to find a sunbed in the shadow when I came back from my visits of the temples. When you have a guide, most of the time you leave the hotel at 8:30 and come back at 3 pm... One exception is if you want to see the sunrise on Angkor Wat, we leaved the hotel at 5 am and come back at noon after visiting the small temple of Banteay Srei, time for some rest near the swimming pool. They have two swimming pools: one with 6 sun beds and 3 sun beds like a bed. The other swimming pool has 18 sun beds.
Moreover you have the free Wi-Fi.
You can give your laundry at this hotel or otherwise there is a shop to wash and iron your laundry for the price of 2 dollars/kilo (1 dollar/kilo in the centre) near the hotel.
The visit of the Senteurs of Angkor (nice presents with a beautiful package) and the Artisans d’Angkor (wood, paintings, etc.) are interesting because you have a guide who explains their way of manufacturing their products.
I recommend this hotel and the visit of the temples even if you are not really interested in this kind of visit because the surrounding is very beautiful.
