Cheap and clean budget hotel Jun 25, 2013
Simple, clean and cheap hotel in Siam Reap, right at the riverside within walking distant to the old market (roughly about 5 minutes walk).

I found this place through booking.com search engine for the price of usd12 per night including breakfast.

A strange thing is, we need to take off our shoes or slipper outside the door (there is a big sign mention this outside the door and plenty of shoes outside). So we have to walk bare feet inside the hotel building. Luckily the place is clean enough.

The reception speaks little English and she could not find our reservation. Finally we showed her our email confirmation letter which I saved it on m. words (since I did not print it when I booked the room in Pnom Penh).

She agrees with it and gives a room at second floor building for us, no payment require until we check out. She did not hold our passport either. No elevator in this hotel.

The room is spacious and has private double room with one queen bed with big windows facing the neighbor courtyard, air condition, dresser, chair, and small television – not sure it is working or not as I do not try it since we were busy exploring the temples every day. The air condition work really well and really cooling the room and freeze our butt.

There is one big cupboard near the door which is handy to hang the clothing’s.

It has basic bathroom without glass shower which make the whole floor wet after shower. However the shower hot water working well.

The hotel provided free 2 bottles of mineral water on first day only, none after that, even after we extend our stay directly through them. No refrigerator in the room though, so we cannot put the dragon fruits we purchase from the market there. At least the air condition keeps the fruits in a good.

The hotel is in the middle of renovation, several workers come in, at or just before 8 am every morning to do the work upstairs until 5pm. We only hear the work when we arrived on the first day. After that we did not hear anything since we usually out early in the morning around 8am and back to the hotel at night time.

The floor in the breakfast room is a bit of a mess since in the back of it plenty of building equipment storage there. Breakfast room located in the garden, outside the hotel building, so we are able to wear our shoes or slipper.

The breakfast is simple without choice, everyday always gets 2 types of eggs, scramble and fried, toast, butter and jam, tea and coffee without ordering it. Basically we just sit there and they will bring the breakfast. No fruits provided, therefore we have our own fruits purchase from the market.

The hotel has their own tuk tuk to go exploring the temples with high price. We opt to find other tuk tuk which is cheaper from the street.

Overall, it was good value hotel for our stay in Siam Reap.
