Good value, very central location
While their PR boasts four-star accommodation at two-star prices, it’s more a case of two-star accommodation at two-star prices, but it’s good for that.
A very popular backpacker and flashpacker spot, this is very good value for Siem Reap, with 36 clean and comfortable rooms including air con, cable TV, DVD player, safety box, mini-bar and hot water.
The entrance is lush and green, and looks from the outside like a pricier establishment. While things are getting a little worn, the rooms are brightly painted and come with well-maintained bathrooms, and, as there are plenty of them, this is a good option to try in high season when places are filling up. As happens often in old Khmer buildings, the rooms can be a little dark, so check them out if that’s a problem for you. They all come with hot showers, cable TV, and minibar. Plus, they throw in a bunch of freebies: bicycles, airport and bus pick-up, all-day tea, coffee and fruit, a basic breakfast and even a 20-minute massage upon check-in.
The restaurant area, which has a pool table at the back, is open 24 hours for tea and coffee, and orders are taken from 06:30 to 23:00.
