“Would not stay again.”
Reviewed 15 July 2009

I stayed here only because I was invited to stay for business purposes. Normally this hotel would have been beyond my usual traveling budget.

I would not go back here on a private leisure trip. Why not? Because I found that the $10-a-night backpackers hostel that I stayed in for two nights prior to staying here had a lot more charm than this hotel, despite the big gap in price.

The hotel is just your average hotel, and could have been anywhere in the world. It looks a bit run down, though the rooms are kept very clean. Good beds and good bathroom, though nothing really special. There is also free wifi.

The staff was very nice and friendly, especially those in the restaurant. I thought that the food itself was not special and expensive compared to the delicious food you can get if you walk the 15 minutes to pub street.

Location was alright but not great, at night I would not walk back but always take a tuk tuk (would usually cost me 1 to 1.5 dollar so not too bad).

The pool was probably the best thing about the hotel, together with the friendly staff.

Still I would not necessarily recommend this hotel. There are much nicer places that offer the same amenities and service (without perhaps a restaurant and swimming pool) for a much lower price.

... so that all we did in the hotel was to take a shower and sleep.
The room was worn out, the a/c powerless, phone line connection dismal (the front desk charged us with two phone calls which did not go through; when I declined paying, front desk insisted and did not even apologize! ), reception not particularly unfriendly but utterly unhelpful, location not that good, breakfast mediocre, problem in bathroom, etc.
My husband who booked the trip truly regretted during and after our stay at the Salina that he did not ask for a hotel upgrade.
Our fault!
(This year, my husband who learned from this experience thus asked to stay at a FOUR star hotel in Turkey, but we were dissappointed again. Pls refer to my other reviews)

The Salina is OK if your more interested in spending your money
on sights, food, beverage and other. Rooms small and basic yes,
the usual sub standard buffet breakfast at this level (although this breakfast was exceptionally poor). However, very short to city centre/markets (Pub Street) $1US in Tuk Tuk taxi, without haggling. Staff friendly. No Safety Deposit Box in room, TV reception a joke. Felt safe though, and the great restaraunts,
day village trips, floating village and of course Angkor Wat temples more than made up for the hotel. For our taste and budget, it's as low as I'd like to go.
