Golden Banana B&B Superior

Golden Banana B&B Superior

Great value in a lovely building

More on Siem Reap

Part of a trio of properties, the Golden Banana Superior is tucked down a lane half-way along Rambutan Lane — named after the luxury hotel and resort that also live in this very sweet little corner of Siem Reap.

Travelfish says:

Follow the Chinese lanterns, and you’ll see the yellow-fronted wall of this place. Here, 15 thoughtfully designed rooms, each with a balcony overlooking the pool, are organised around a long, inviting semi-indoor saltwater pool which spends most of the time in the shade and is thus cooler than many others which can turn into hot soup. The look is a sort of hybrid of Asia and the Mediterranean, with soft yellow walls neatly offset by Chinese detailing. All the rooms are ensuite, with fan, air-con, TV and safety box, and they really are lovely: spacious, set out with gorgeous tiles and very comfortable. For the price, given the proximity to town, and the quality of the amenities, we think this place offers excellent value. The rooftop is a perfect spot to take a cocktail and watch the sun go down. Downstairs is a poolside restaurant, and the Happy Hour is six hours long with a buy one, get one free offer. A good flashpacker option.
