    Bathroom not clean”

    On the plus side, the staff is very kind, the room is spacious, the location is great, Wi-Fi works perfect, and there is a great TV selection, including CNN. On the other hand, the bathroom is not clean. There was mold growing along the walls of the bathroom. I’m not one for daily housekeeping, but on the two days I did ask for the room to be cleaned the staff made the bed, emptied the trashcan… and did not clean the bathroom.Hot water was also an issue. I had to ask twice for there to be hot water in my room, and the idea of taking a hot shower seemed like a new one to the staff. Speaking of water, for two days there was no water in the morning. This is a problem when you’re going to see sunrise and want to take a shower before you leave. While the hotel is centrally located, bear in mind that the Pub Street area is very loud. There is a karaoke bar nearby and constant construction in the area. Also, while the staff was nice, they were unaware of temple opening times. I asked to set up a tuk tuk to take me to Bekheng for sunrise, and was repeatedly told that the temple did not open until 7 AM. (In fact, Bekheng is open at 5 AM for sunrise.) The final problem was that they charged me $3 for laundry, and when the clothes came back they were still dirty. They smelled better, but dirt was still clearly visible everywhere. The owner told me, I’m sorry, the machine doesn’t work very well. Wish I had known that ahead of time as he did. I would not stay here again.

    Dear Kelly Greeting from Cheng Lay Guesthouse ,Siem Reap Cambodia . We love to hear your feedback. We would like apologies for her sound was angrily. The reason made her angry because the laundry and bathroom that her got are different from her told . you said : "No staff clean the bathroom " it's unfair because they cleaned already just forget toilet paper ,The laundry we wash by machine that it so much to clean because mix together and this is so much dirty from you already that we can not do perfect for you . One more the tour that you request to see sunrise at Bakeng mountain we never have customer request like you they requests only for sunset ,so the Police of tourism not yet open for sunrise at 5:00am Bakeng Mountain they open only Angkor Wat Temple and Sras Srang that we confirm to you can not do at Bakeng Mountain .so we don't know that you knew from where Bakeng Mountain open at 5:00am ? I am Mr Sok San just Manager here that told you about Machine laundry .

    Though not located right in the heart of the Angkor town, the location is close enough to walk to the central area. It's only 5 min walk to Tous de Jour and the cinema. Tuk-tuks are available for 6 dollars to the airport. The guesthouse also caters meal to its guests at an okay price. The food is not disappointing, so we're glad with that. They also provide scooter rental and bicycle rental by the day.

    I felt rude from staff”

    I was used pick-up service from airport to this guest house. first of all, this guest house has value for money. but I want to say about cheating from person of charge in front desk. Reception staff was tell to us about touring, guide, tuk tuk again and again without fan or air conditioning. we've got a reservation already so, we said "Sorry we don't need it" but Reception staff was Constantly suggested. maybe it seems to he want to some kind of TIP. it was rude. And, our room was changed from what I booked room. staff was said "We don't have room what you booked room so one day you sleep in other room then we can change to room what you booked" also, I need a sim card for using internet at outside. that's why I asked about location of telecom shop. and then staff said "Oh I can buy to you because it will be expensive to traveller just give me 3 dollar then you can use an internet in anywhere" I asked again "surely can use an internet as 3 dollar?" he said "YES" that's why I gave a 3 dollar per 1 sim card totally 6 dollar for me and my wife. after few minutes he back to us. but it can't use internet because it has not a storage. As I expected it was SIM CARD cheating in Cambodia. I demanded an immediate explanation to staff. but he said "In Cambodia need a recharge again because 3 dollar was just price for Sim Card you need a 1 dollar more for recharging" I don't want to get a cheat again so I'm just went to telecom shop directly. also, didn't used any service and I refused to their kindness. I don't want to unwished payment as cheating.

    beware the guy on the front desk”

    Clean, great air con, really good food at excellent prices. Must ask for room service every time. Good luck. wifi is OK but need to reconnect every couple of hours. Hot showers, I had no problem with the water. Friendly and polite staff which was unfortunately tainted by the front desk when I left. After being there for 5 days, the guy, whom I had tipped many times ripped me off when I left by ordering a tuk tuk for me at a costing for 1 hour, to go to Great Ibis bus, which he told me was a long way away. It ended up being 250 m from the hotel. Easily walkable.

    The location is good, close to marts and café. The counter is friendly. You can religion them to have cheaper tutuk and tickets to the national park. Yet, there's easily misunderstanding in conversation. You'd better reconfirm your request. There's no dryer. The shower water is small. Besides, when you're out with your key, the fridge will be out of electricity.
