at $65.00 + VAT, (booking.com) which includes WiFi & Buffet Breakfast, this has to be the best value 3 star (int'l rating) hotel in Siem Reap. Equal to a new build Sheraton for comparison. Pros: it is located on a main shopping road in town, but long driveway sets the property back behind retail fronts and makes it an intimate and quiet setting. 3 minute Tuk-Tuk ride to Pub street and open local markets. Room size is generous with contemporary appointments that would make you think you are walking into a Westin at first glance. Complementary water (2) bottles in the room upon arrival and daily, I think? Nice comforter and AC control system. Separate large rain shower and huge soaking tub. Swim up pool bar is a nice feature for those hot afternoon breaks in your tour/activities outings before dinner. Staff is very friendly and always responsive once they understand your request. Lobby is grand with wonderful wood floors, lobby bar, local cultural appointments.Umbrellas available for use located in lobby and can be signed out of hotel. Cons: negative edge spa that spills into the pool was not heated. Towels are not high quality and appear to be over-washed with a stiff and rough nap to the feel. Wine by the glass selection is very limited and could use expansion. Staff not completely trained on certain cocktail receipes, but will accommodate if you walk them through it. No irons in the room but can be ordered from Housekeeping. All staff speaks some English, some more than others. Many are not very confident (cultural thing from my experience in traveling) but will engage if pushed further into conversation. stay away from your own slang to have better results in your requests. Water pressure from hot water boiler risers will have vacillation from time to time, but no shortage of hot water. Should offer a "day room" rate for all the late air departures. full room rate for such is a little painful. Could keep umbrellas in back tower lobby for guest use when crossing from pool to main lobby.
