The Kool hotel was OK. In my opinion, the hotel still remains a good value and I don't disagree completely with the other reviews however a few things to point out. The air conditioner system is not particularly up to the task. If you like the room cool, keep looking. The hotel has a bar however it is not particularly... More

This Cambodian-owned hotel is located in a quiet part of town. Downtown is easily accessible for a $2 remork ride, and there is a free evening shuttle bus. The lower floor of the hotel, with its lounge area, bar, reception and dining room, is quite elegant. There is no elevator. The room was adequate, though the bathroom could have done... More

The Kool Hotel lived up to its name. It was better than anticipated, especially for such an inexpensive price. The room was big and clean, bathroom was nice, and the balcony allowed for some nice sunset/sunrise photo ops. The pool was great to relax at after touring temples all day. We ate dinner there and the food was delicious. $2... More

Rooms were bright and clean and staff were ever helpful and happy. Away from the main drag, so quiet. Nice to jump in the pool after a day of templing. Food was not great, but they lay on a tuk tuk to take you to pub street.

Great place to stay in Siam Rep Nice pool to relax in after visiting the temples Staff are so friendly and were really helpful in getting taxi and tuk Tuks to the temples. The town lost power for 1 day so the hotel gave us free drinks and massages
