Welcome to the Golden Banana

Golden Banana Bed & Breakfast and Boutique Hotel is in the best location in Siem Reap.  It is nestled in a very quiet lane, yet within five minutes stroll to Pub Street, the Old Market, shops, restaurants and the Old French Quarter.

Warm greetings to you


Quiet, yet central

Located in the Wat Damnak commune, behind the Art Night Market, the Golden Banana opened in December 2003 with a handful of staff and only 11 rooms. The hotel, built in the French Colonial Style in a tranquil and secluded Khmer Village, has grown into a complex of three buildings offering a separate pool, restaurant and bar. It is a few minutes stroll across the Siem Reap River to the Old Market, shops and Pub Street restaurants and nightlife. It is only 10 minutes drive to the world-famous temple of Angkor Wat, Siem Reap International Airport and Tonle Sap boat port.

A Note from the Owner

I select local well-trained managers carefully to assist you and make your stay memorable. They can answer your questions and assist you during your visit in Cambodia. Sometimes mistakes are made – even the management or owner can make mistakes – but please remember that everyone is doing their utmost to help you. If things don’t go as smoothly as you expected, please tell the staff or contact me.

My staff, many of whom attend school to further improve their English, is well able to deal with your requests but sometimes there are language and cultural barriers to overcome. In Asian cultures it is sometimes difficult to say that you cannot do something for a guest or that you do not understand him or her.

In addition to the in-house staff the Golden Banana can provide drivers of tuk-tuks and air-conditioned cars as well as tour guides. They are all fantastic people and we love them.

We welcome people of all ages, nationalities, faiths and backgrounds. Golden Banana is gay friendly.
