Thanks to a favorable exchange rate, you can get 5 star value for a 1 star price. We paid about $38/night including tax for a rather luxurious stay. A fairly sumptuous (by American standards) buffet was included, with two chefs - omelet and asian soup, with delicious fruit, standard american fare, korean and chinese cuisine. The hotels location is on the edge of town, but it's only a $2 and 5-7 minute ride by Tuk-Tuk to get to down-town.
The hotel can supply a tour-guide and driver for the day for a reasonable price. Tour guide pricing is a somewhat controlled market with the prices set by the Cambodian government. A cheaper option is to hire your own tuk-tuk guide for the day. I highly recommend a wonderful English-speaking Tuk Tuk driver - Davuth - his email is amsedavuth at yahoo dot com. Depending on what you want to do, this option will cost you $10-15 for the day. We went with Davuth to a floating village on a day-trip.
The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was great. The shampoo and soap was pretty good, although no conditioner was provided. There was an in-room fridge, and one day housekeeping left fresh fruit in our room. The hotel also provided unlimited free bottled water. Our room had a great view of the pool with a HUGE balcony.
One of the last features of the hotel that I rather enjoyed was the massive winding staircase. It has a very elegant feel and we used it as much as possible.
There was no fitness center at the hotel from what I could discern, but it's possible to go jogging on the nearby roads if you can put up with an uneven surface. Bring a stick to ward off dogs, as I was chased a little by one female dog protecting her puppies.
