Went there for 4 days of business trip and chosen this hotel as a few of my client's offices were within walking distance, very convenient and had a walk down to Gangnam which was about a good 10min walk. Had dinner and some drinks there....was a pleasant experience overall. Will come back again for sure.

Great place to stay. Doesn't look like a million bucks on the outside, but it's elegant inside. Rooms are comfy, beautiful, and include a kitchenette and washer. A bathtub would have been nice, but perhaps other rooms have one. Just a nice place to stay.
This hotel gave me a surprise on the first day. Very clean and all facility are very nice and classic. My colleague was also very happy with quality. I will stay at this hotel for the next trip as well.
Tucked away on peaceful Golden Banana lane, this was an ideal location for my stay. I am a single woman traveler looking for that perfect boutique hotel experience, I found my spot in Siem Reap!
The quaint lane leads you to the secure gates for the Rambuten hotel, the lane is accessible by tuk yuk, but my taxi could not get down the lane so I walked down with my roller bag. The taxi driver was familiar with the Golden Banana name, not Rambuten. From what I understand there are a variety of hotels along this lane, all owned or pirated by the same owner. There are two Rambuten names, one is the hotel and the other is I think a resort. I walked into the wrong one upon arrival and the staff grabbed my bag without hesitation and walked me down to the proper hotel for check in, very welcome after a 4 hour flight delay!!
The Rambuten I stayed at was towards the end of the lane, before the 90 degree turn. I was greeted with a refreshing cool towel and welcome beverage, I had some brief paperwork upon check-in and the escorted to my room once I was relaxed and ready to move. The staff were mostly male, handsome, and reminded me of that 'pool boy' stereotype; exactly what I pictured for a gay friendly hotel. I selected this hotel due to numerous factors: location, price, salt water pool, room type, ad likelihood of children to impact the relaxation factor.
The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable, though not as luxurious as the JW Marriott. However, the service is friendly and polite. Staff are very accommodating, if you ask in advance you can probably get a late checkout. The pool is well maintained, as are the locker facilities and sauna. Gym is pretty complete in terms of equipment. The buffet breakfast has a varied selection, everything is good, with the exception of the pastries (croissants are fine though). KAL limousine shuttle goes directly to the hotel, which is pretty convenient for tired travellers. The surrounding area seems quite but walk around, there are a few cafes and food courts tucked into the financial buildings. There is also a bus stop nearby and taxis are readily available (though I suggest you have hotel staff call them, some of the ones on the street try to rip you off). Would definitely stay here again.
