I have just returned from three days in Siem Reap where the only disappointment was the Hanuman Alaya hotel. When I first arrived my initial impression was excellent. The hotel has a wonderful look and feel and, although my room wasn't ready (it was an early flight so this was expected), I went off temple gazing, looking forward to a cool dip in the pool and a relaxing afternoon. When I returned from Ankor I was told that I wasn't staying in the main hotel but an annex about 500m away. The annex turned out to be the hotel offices. No pool, no restaurant, nothing but a small, dingy room. I walked back to the main hotel to complain (I was told earlier that I could shuttle between the two places by the hotel tuk-tuk that was always available - it was available once in three days!). I was told that for the price I was paying U$35 per night I wasn't entitled to stay in the main hotel, that would cost another U$30 per night. I have just checked the hostelworld site (again) and it still says U$35 per night per single person.
I specifically booked this hotel for its facilities and feel totally mis-led by the hotel, by hostelworld and by Lonely Planet for not verifying the information that it so readily posts. As it is, I live in Malaysia and was so impressed with Ankor that I intend taking my wife and three children for the Deepavali break - but you can bet your life it won't be through hostelworld or the Hanuman "A liar" hotel.
Having checked the pricing here on Travellerspoint, it clearly states 65USD for a single room, which correlates with the pricing mentioned in this review.
