Lovely restaurant next to pubstreet in a cosy romantic little sidestreet. Had the best (khmer) curry, also a house specialty. The Amok was also the best we had on our trip. A mistake was made with the requested spicyness of one of our dishes, which was corrected adiquately and with A smile. Worth it!!!!

Very glad we picked this hotel, thanks to the good TA reviews. Especially liked the central location although we didn't have time to walk around. The air-conditioned room was not spacious but came with a comfy bed, nice pillows and linens, in-room slippers, good lighting, great hot/cold shower with towels, bath gel and shampoo. There was also a hair-dryer, safe...

This is a lovely little small restaurant with a good menu of local dishes, and a great happy hour where you can buy a drink and then all you want of their aperitifs which include fried and fresh Spring rolls, vegetable stick and dip and more. If your looking for somewhere for a nice drink, good quite atmosphere and light...

We stayed in Room No. 6 for 5 days straight, and it was beyond our expectation. You get more than what you pay nightly. Friendly owner & staffs. Small hotel; love their minimal interior design and maximized the usage within tight space! Location is very central in Siem Reap town, along the newly beautified lane-ways! Cool area. Walking distance to...

Down an alley just metres from Pub Street and 7/11 mini market The Purple Mangosteen is in a prime location- providing the heavy base of the music pumping out of said Pub Street doesn't bother you. This little hotel is a great place to base yourself during your stay in Siem Reap. The rooms are a decent size with a...

This place is a real find, the samlor chi green and Khmer curries were delicious. Amazing flavour and piping hot. That combined with a great terrace view over the city and for only 4-5 USD = perfect. Highly recommend. And there's a great ice cream place next door when you're done !

We stayed at a standard double room for 4 nights in February. The room was on the small side but adequate for a short stay. The room was suitable for couples but maybe not so much for friends because of the shower area in the middle of the room. The room was clean. The shower worked well. The bed was...

Its tucked away few yards in a lane in heart of the town. A 6 room BNB outfit is cute. Be prepared to climb two or three floors. Obviuosly striking design, different but not fashy. The little space is used so beautifully. The lady who runs the place will arrange anything a tourist will want. Tuk-tuk, guide, no problem. Reliable...

This is a nice little restaurant in downtown Siem Reap. My husband and I decided on stopping there for lunch because on a 37° day we wanted somewhere cool, and there was a nice breeze blowing along the lane. The restaurant had a fairly comprehensive menu of Cambodian food, cheaply priced. We were served by a lovely lady who ensured...

“Avoid this hotel if you want a peace of mind. It's in loud & crazy area - pub street. But this is the right place for having fun at night.”
