We booked Vica Thai sleeper bus from here to Siem reap. They were supposed to pick us up to go to the actual bus stand at 11:30pm and after waiting 40 min and asking the girl to call about the pickup she repeatedly rolled her eyes and said "he'll come". Why do hotels like these take the bus reservations if... More

Great location, just off the main backpacking strip so much quieter at night. Room had no window but wasn't an issue as it was just a good base to go out and explore from. Comfortable bed and good A/C. Bathroom set up was a bit disappointing (just a shower curtain between the toilet/shower and the room). However for the price... More

The breakfast is pretty basic, almost on the awful side. First morning I was woken up by the constitution next door around 7 am. It was very loud. I was moved to a different room on the second floor with a nice balcony. Unfortunately it was infested with mice. I wasn't able to sleep once again because of the mouse... More

First the positives - the reception staff were nice and helpful and helped us arrange trips and taxis. The location was good. The air conditioning worked. The room was spacious and clean. The negatives - the bathroom didn't have a door. Just a curtain. We were asked to leave our key whenever we left the hotel - twice we had... More

Staff is nice enough, location is good, room was not to noisy. Breakfast is terrible, no door to bathroom and the remote control to the ac didn't work so couldn't turn the as off. For 28$ a high we were expecting more. They have two location in the same building, you don't know which one you end up in.

I had just arrived after an arduous trip, not realising it was the touristic high season. After trying about 10 different hotels I started losing hope, but before I even noticed that this was also an hotel the perceptive staff were already ushering me in.
