What we say: 4 stars

This is a training hotel for the students of Sala Bai, a hospitality training school for young, disadvantaged Cambodians from the villages around Siem Reap. The fees from the hotel, and restaurant, go towards covering their training costs. With only four rooms, booking is advisable. The rooms are spotlessly clean, and minimally but attractively decorated, and all have air-con and hot water. The suite is much bigger, with its own living room and large bathroom, including a bath. They are just above the training restaurant, which serves excellent food, with a choice of weekly changing set menus, or a very reasonable à la carte. The hotel is only open on week days from October until July, closing for the Khmer New Year, which is usually in April. The students may be shy at the beginning of the academic year, and their English won't necessarily be that great yet, but they are trying and working really hard to improve. There is almost always a Western staff member around to help if there are any translation difficulties. The school has already graduated more than 800 students, and has a perfect track record for swiftly finding them work in town. There are so many NGOs in town, and this is without question one of the good ones. Recommended.
