Solid and unpretentious value
So the pictures on the website are decidedly cheesy, but don’t let that stop you from this great value, super-central option.
Kitted out with Khmer furniture (a whole forest of it), the lux rooms are spotlessly clean, and come with all mod-cons including air-con, hot water, cable TV, very fairly-priced minibar, and WiFi, though we recommend you book a room close to the centre and the router if you plan on using that a lot. The staff were very helpful, and spoke excellent English. This place is also a good recommend for anyone planning a long-term stay as you should be able to negotiate a fair deal.

Nicky Sullivan is an Irish freelance writer (and aspiring photographer). She has lived in England, Ireland, France, Spain and India, but decided that her tribe and heart are in Cambodia, where she has lived since 2007 despite repeated attempts to leave. She dreams of being as tough as Dervla Murphy, but fears there may be a long way to go. She can’t stand whisky for starters. She was a researcher, writer and coordinator for The Angkor Guidebook: Your Essential Companion to the Temples, now one of the best-selling guidebooks to the temples.
