A ten minute walk away from the crowded, neon, beggar-patrolled ‘Pub Street’ that is Siem Reap’s tourist centre, Tropical Breeze is a comfortable and well-priced option, with cable TV, WiFi, a restaurant with complimentary breakfast and bicycles for rent. What more could you want in a base for exploring the Angkor ruins? Oh yes – a pool. There aren’t any in town in the budget category, but there is one at the Golden Banana directly next door, which will let you use their gorgeous pool if you buy a drink or two. Absolute bliss after a day in the dusty ruins!
Cost: Ten US dollars for a double room with en suite bathroom, WiFi, cable TV and a basic breakfast for two (only for advance bookings). Four to six dollars more for air con rooms.
Finding it: Wat Damnak Road, Salakamroeuk Commune, Siem Reap. On the other side of the river to the Old Market, near Wat Damnak Pagoda. (See map below.)
