Friendly staff and good location
The most friendly staff i've ever experienced, very helpful, young motivated staffs. Great breakfast. Very homy environment. Great shower. Everything was just easy. What not so great is only the location, not a good location if you wanna have a walk, too busy and pollution, but easy to get to the airport.

Pleasant stay
Three stars hotel but the services are excellent.Staying one night for $75+ (Sing Dollar). I like the breakfast and are yummy yummy. The staffs are very polite and helpful. I like the hotel concept being decorated as library and very suitable to take photos. There is Sister hotel known as SARAI resort and spa in Siem Reap,Combodia and I believe is worth to try as well.

Beautiful Place :)
Everything was classy. Lucy from the front desk was super helpful and the included breakfast was amazing. Nice rooftop restaurant too. Our A/C unit had some problems, so they offered us a free ride to the airport when we left. A nice touch I figure. They really do care here.
