Gf and I stayed at Golden Banana while visiting the temples at Bayon and Angkor Wat. The accommodations were clean and quiet, the garden environment pleasant and the restaurant across the alley convenient for early breakfast. Prices were a bit higher than most of the places we patronized in Cambodia but it was a nice place to stay and the... More

It has great location: only 5 minute walk to Old Market and Pub Street area, but very quiet at night. The room itself was decent size but the bathroom was too small. All very clean. Nice pool bar. Very friendly staff all through the hotel. It is not a gay hotel: many different kinds of guests mingling. Very nice! Breakfast... More

I've seen some bad reviews of this place and I'm sure that the hotel next door as had a hand in many. I've had 3 people ask at the hotel next door if this is the Golden Banana (outside it says GB II)). All receptionists said YES which make them only doing what management has told them to do. LIE...

Let me just preface this by saying that I rarely write bad reviews but in an effort to save another traveler from the mismanaged expectations my husband and I experienced I wanted to share the truth about this place. I want to arm you hard working people who really value your vacation days, with the facts. There is really no... More

This was my 3rd stay here. The location is excellent, close to the bustle of the centre yet in a quiet position. If you book through the booking sites you get put in a separate building down an alley way. The rooms are still ok but you feel like second class citizens. It's gay friendly but folk from all cultures... More

I accidentally arrived in Siem Reap on dates that coincided with the country's 3-day Water Festival holiday, and the city was incredibly energetic with many Cambodians visiting the city. I loved how the setup of the hotel was the best of both worlds -- it was extremely convenient to get to all the activity going on during the day, but... More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times. The food is generally good but this time I did not order food because the management asked me to leave. I was staying about a block away from Golden Banana at another property, I arranged for the shuttle from the Giant Ibis company to pick me up but was told that they... More

Had four nights in this charming establishment a short walk (across the river and through the night market) from the throbbing centre of Pub Street. Spread over three buildings I stayed in the furthest away - down an alley and with a swimming pool all of its own. The room on the second floor was tastefully furnished, clean and had... More

This was our second stay here in two years. It is still a nice good value place to stay with friendly and helpful staff. Recommend the superior upstairs rooms over the down stairs rooms, which are small and dark. Unfortunately Breakfast isn't as good as it used to be. Even more frustrating is that the Internet barely works. This was... More

I have just returned from a wonderful vacation in Siem Reap and had the benefit of staying at the Golden Banana Boutique Resort - a calm oasis after a long day at Angkor Wat doesn't come close . The hotel is only small but much more than adequate. The best thing about it other than its location were the staff... More
