Good hotel
Very nice hotel. Good choice for this price!...

What we say: 3.5 stars

One of Siem Reap's biggest and oldest backpacker dens, Smiley's is a fine, pragmatic choice. The large three-storey building is not the most charming although it's built around a pleasant courtyard, but it's clean and very close to the centre of town while still being relatively quiet because it's set behind the main road that connects via a narrow laneway. The neighbourhood noises will still intrude though. Rooms vary in size, with the cheapest positively minuscule, but they all come with private bathrooms (cheapest are cold water only). Furnishings are minimal, and not all of the beds are comfortable, but they're pretty clean. A restaurant and common area beside the courtyard make for a pretty chilled place to hang out, and there are also computers in the lobby that are free for use. Both fan and air-con rooms are available in single, double, twin and triple configuration. If price is your number one criteria, Smiley's is worth considering. Breakfast isn't included, though it's free to use the WiFi on your laptop and to borrow bicycles for the day.
