Siem Reap & PP - cheap and cheerful

OK - confess haven't searched previous posts. Want to get this off - strike while the iron is hot, etc. Can anyone recommend accom in either of the above that is just a notch above seriously budget? Wish list - central, cheap, atmospheric - old building perhaps, and with garden. Would be mad if I didn't prefer en suite but am willing to trade that for a place with the aforementioned qualities!

Budget - sort of flexible but based on previous trips to Thailand, am thinking around 15USD a night single.

Thanks loads.

topping my own post and upping the budget to $25-$35 a night. Anyone have any helpful hints - so nice to have a personal recommendation!

Taa.

You might want to post this request on the Thorntree (Lonely Planet's website) as people on that board are more expert in budget travel. Do a search on this board (easy, just use the search function at the top of the page), but I'm not sure that I've seen recommendations in that price range here.

If you can increase your original budget a little, then yes, there is a fantastic place that is cheerful, cozy, and beautiful, with way more atmosphere and charm than the big hotels.

It's called Borann l'Auberge des Temples, a French-Cambodian run place with only 20 rooms around a beautiful garden. It's an elegant place. There's also a swimming pool. I highly recommend it - I just stayed there last December. It's very popular, so I suggest making a reservation soon. Rooms are $33-45, a bargain. www.borann.com

Mealea - thanks loads - a bit outside budget but that's just the sort of place I'm looking for. Off to check it out.
