Renamed 'SiZen Retreat and Spa', this hotel was amazing and everyone traveling to Siem Reap should definitely stay here. Myself and my fiancée were here for 4 nights after deciding on this hotel based on the outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor. This hotel's reputation is very deserving. The staff are their greatest attribute, as all were very friendly, attentive and helpful...

We arrived in the dark and the name of the hotel had been changed - so after confirming we were in the right location, we settled in to the wonderful Cambodian service. Offerings of a passionfruit juice and a few munchies as we waited for our rooms. The room was very comfortable once I was able to jerry-rig the A/C...

The rooms are wonderful and the property makes you feel like you are miles away yet it is only minutes from the hub of Siem Reap. Their breakfasts are 10 on 10 - fabulous. Really crispy French croissants, omelettes, fresh juices. A wow. Dinnners and lunches could do with a bit more of the breakfast feel. The pool is nice...

I've just booked my room for later in the year and the experience was very simple and painless. I could tell (even via the cold reality of email communication) that the staff are all about looking after their guests. My only disappointment is that I won't be able to stay longer than 3 days this time but I know that...

A lovely hotel with beautiful grounds and within a short ride to markets and restaurants. The hotel helped arranged airport pick up and our trip to temples.

Super friendly staff, very nice food (try the chicken curry and home made ice cream!), great, quite, peaceful location in the heart of the city. Also go for a massage to a blind masseuse trained by Krousar Thmey, the NGO of the owner.

A lovely quiet hotel set on beautiful grounds away from the bustle of Pub Street and market areas. A little oasis within walking distance of town but feels further away due to it's quiet location and comfortable rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely pool area and good breakfast. No tv's in rooms if this is important to you.

Thanks for your comment. Yes, you are right, no TV...this is something that may miss during election time, but it allows the rest of the time, to enjoy the serenity of the garden. Something most of us do forget and do not regret to do after having spent some days in Borann. See you soon to be welcomed again, as...
