This boutique hotel looks great on the website, but the hotel is located a long way from the action in Siem Reap town. The first impression of shoes and sandals strewn all over the front steps of the hotel is annoying, tripping on the way in.
The rooms are nice, but one of the the lamps did not work and could not be fixed, there was only one towel and bathrobe in a double room, the towels are paper thin, the bathroom basin is cold water only, and the next-door dogs barking outside the window all night was very tiresome.
The pool is very small, only a few strokes to reach the other end, and there are only a few deckchairs and seats. The water was cold which was refreshing after a day at the temples.
The staff are very friendly and wanted to help at every opportunity, although security at the hotel is questionable - all room keys are left on the front counter, including late at night when nobody is attending the desk.
The room rates are expensive compared to most of the hundreds of hotels in Siem Reap, I guess adding 'boutique' to their name let's them charge more than it is worth.
