We arrived this morning in Siem Reap, after a long and uncomfortable night bus. When we arrived at the station, the hotel was going to pick us up, but they weren’t there.
We grabbed a tuk-tuk and went to the hotel.
When we got there, they were having a rough day. The power had gone out the day before, and they’d lost everything. They didn’t know who was coming in, who needed to be picked up, or who was staying in what rooms.
So, unfortunately, we couldn’t check in early. But that’s ok, since they still gave us breakfast and juice and were very friendly. We were able to check in at 2pm (which is their normal check in time).
The room was great! It was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The shower had hot water, plenty of space, and a shower curtain. (I’ve nearly forgotten what those are like.)
I would definitely recommend The Golden Mango. Sony, the manager, is very knowledgeable and helpful. And, to make up for not picking us up from the bus station, they took us to the airport for free when we left.
The restaurant was really great there as well. We ate there for dinner twice because it was so good.
The only thing that could have made the hotel better, would be if the internet worked in our room. It just didn’t stretch that far, for whatever reason. So we had to use it in the lobby or the restaurant.
