Stayed a full week here. Lovely clean rooms. Inexpensive. Excellent staff. Located on the fantastic west alley running parallel with pub street. It does get noisy at night. So be sure to bring ear plugs! In principle, I think, there is no access to the roof top after they stop serving food. Around 23, if memory serves. A bit sad...

Lovely restaurant in great location. Had pomelo salad, chicken with ginger and rice, mango and sticky rice, half a carafe of red wine all for us 17. Food was lovely, nice surroundings sitting outside and watching world go by. Definitely will return

We stayed at the Purple Mangosteen for two nights in Siem Reap, and found it to be the perfect location to visit Angkor Wat and the downtown sights of Siem Reap. While nothing overly fancy (don't stay here if you're expecting resort luxuries), the price is unbeatable and the room was clean, charming and just what we needed. While it's...

It's hard for me to put 5 points for any hotel especially this one. It's perfect and match my criteria in selecting a hotel: Location & Price There's a moment when I think I shouldn't add a good review for this hotel and save it for my next trip - or it would be full booking. However, I decide to...

This was the nicest meal we had in a six day visit to Siem Reap. Great food, excellent service with character and very reasonably priced. Try the Khmer curry, it was fabulous. No dessert on the menu, but the Gelato Lab is practically next door and well worth a visit.

Lovely staff who were very helpful! Great location, very close to food and markets, some noise at night from Pub Street. Worked well as a hotel and restaurant and was a very picturesque little street. Recommend staying here.

I was very disappointed in this hotel. It looks good from the outside and street level, but really it is way overpriced for what you get. I had specifically asked for a quiet room when booking because I'd read it could be noisy. We were given room 6, which reverberated from the disco just behind, until 3:30 a.m. I asked...

Stumbled upon this little place. Small menu but perfectly formed. Khmer Curry, pork with eggplant and morning glory -. All full of flavour and delicious. It is off the main Pub Street, on a quiet bylane, easily missed. But would recommend you Google map your way there. We later discovered that it was also a hotel with rooms. I can't...

We found by coincidence this had a very good diner at this beautiful restaurant. The staff is very friendly. You need to walk a little bit further in the alley to find this restaurant but it's definitely worth going to this restaurant when you are in Pub Street.

“Avoid this hotel if you want a peace of mind. It's in loud & crazy area - pub street. But this is the right place for having fun at night.”
