In Siem Reap City Cambodia we stayed at Star Angkor Hotel. Its a 3 star hotel. Mostly Hotels in SiemREap City are newly constructed. In star Star Angkor HOtel, the buffet breakfast are good specially if you are vegetarian. There are lots of vegefoods on the buffet.
there is a swimming pool
Shadow of Angkor, or in Kmer: Reaksmei Angkor, is a smaller, sympatic hotel in an traditional colonial-style building, along the Siep Reap River, very close to the Old Market.
They call this Hotel more Guesthouse, but I would say, it's in the middle. The rooms are very clear, some with large balcony with riverview all on the first floor. Downstairs is the restaurant for taking breakfast, luch of dinner.
Prices are around 20 US$, the rooms are simple, but service is excellent and frienly.
The guesthouse is situated very close to the center of Siem Reap, the old market, all the shops, restaurants etc.
On the first floor is an large balcony with massif teakwood furniture to have a drink with view on the riverside.
For breakfast, ask for a freshly cooked Cambodian tea, it's excellent!
A simple but excellent guesthouse in the middle of Siem Reap, with a very good price/performance ration. Next visit to Siem Reap, I will certainly return here and I can recommend this hotel to everyone.
The owner and his wife take care personnally of all your questions and problems.
Happy hours from 5 - 9 pm.
The cuisine has many Kmer specialities.
I have been very lucky to visit Siem Reap at least twice per year and always have stayed at Mandalay Inn, on my Dec 2007 and January 2008 visits at the new premises. It is even nicer than before because of the deepening friendship with Maung Maung. Right now we are in the process of coordinating some humanitarian actviites in Thailand for Burmese Refugees and also for a medical clinic in Siem Reap for the poor. Those of you who stay there might want to discuss this with him.
but khmer run, maung's wife and brother in law are in charge of the hotel and they are khmer.
the staff seem very happy and content.
there are 14 khmer people employed in the hotel and restaurant. Try to leave one dollar each for them if you are staying there for a few days. The tips are equally divided betweent he staff including the room service staff.
check out their website and find the various types of accomodation. Also this is the only place in Siem REap you coudl get information about tours to Myanmar and having things organized when you get to Yangon in Myanmar.
Is a lovely,clean and quiet room. i had a very good sleep all the night.
This guest house is location very strategic. By walking distance, you can do some shopping at the old central market. At night, also by walking distance, you may have your dinner at the restourant as you like. Along the street, you can see various of restorant, such as Khemer restorant, indian food, happy pizza, red piano(as recommend by looney planet) and etc.
If you looking for cheap and clean guesthouse, you may consider Bou savy geusthouse which organise by a khmer family.. They also provide nice and friendly driver for Tuk Tuk or car for your transportation.. their room rate include the breakfast also. If you interested, you may try this guesthouse.. i had a nice stay in this guest house.. :)
Hotel is built Khmer style with authentic restaurant on site. Very clean and stylish. Free tea, coffee and fruit all day. Nightly big screen movie. Free internet (7 computers). Hotel is located in a side street. Not really a problem as it is only 5 min walk from Old Market where all the restaurants and shopping are.
We paid US$18/twin room ensuite with A/C (summer 2007). We had a very comfortable stay. Will definitely come back.
We stayed in a courtyard room, the room was large, spacious luxurious and quiet. The hotel is 6 months old and every thought has gone into the design to meet the needs of guests who will obviously be visiting the temples and surrounding countryside eg the pool area restaurant, the bar and the courtyard had lounging beds so that tired returning guests could relax with a drink/food and put their feet up. The design is very modern and is situated right in the heart of Siem Reap opposite the local market. The food at the restaurant was fanastic and very reasonable considering it was in a 5* hotel - a 6 course Khmer meal was $27. Could not fault it
The Villa Siem Reap is very affordable perfect getaway. Visit the website - you will see what I mean. They offer 3N and 5N Super Value and Luxury Packages. I contacted them and customised my package for 5D4N - for USD 145 per person (twin share) - it includes accomodation, personalised tuk tuk driver from the Villa, breakfast, daily temple packs (pre-packed lunch) and 1 day guide.
The staffs are friendly and they reverted to all my queries promptly. They do their best to make the guest feel at home.
This package is designed for those who want to combine the best of the temples, with Siem Reaps other attractions. This is a flexible package giving you the structure of an itinerary, but allowing you set your own pace. (The 3 day temple pass is at own expense).
My driver Mr Han, is simply the best - he helped to advise which is the best time to go for the temples - to avoid crowds and get the best view! He speaks good English and can almost double up as a guide. Most important is that our itenary is flexible so that we can do things at our own pace and Mr Han even took the extra mile to search for a perfect picnic spot for us!
The temple packs are simply a wonderful way to explore the temples - cold drinks and sandwiches / pasta / salad are packed in a lunch box - for picnic - you need not go back to the city for lunch and waste time.
The accomodation are simply marvellous - clean and neat, with its purple color theme. Rooms are well kept and furnished with air con, private bathroom - even to the extend providing toiletries.
Book my stay here last july via www. Asiarooms. The room is clean and bathroom clean. The Cable TV has plenty of channels. Within walking distance to the city market. You can have the staff book you for a $10 dinner cultural dance show. Would definitely stay here again.
The room a/c blasted cool air, and after even a few hours that's what's needed plain and simple. The Freedom Hotel bargain for a double with a/c, cable TV, and private bath was $16- per night, but after we stayed someone different was at the desk and wanted to charge us $20-. Make sure your price is clear and there's no suprise service charges, but otherwise this was a good place to stay. It's right near the river and the old stone bridge, over which one can easily walk to the much more expensive old colonial era Angkor Hotel for dinner and entertainment. Also within walking distance in the opposite direction, down Road No. 6 is the Old Central Market where one can see fish mongers, produce vendors, and others hawking under pitiful conditions. We stayed on the second floor and had a view across town. At the time of our visit, the hotel accommodations were very limited, but the road leading to Angkor Wat was loaded with the concrete foundations and steel framing of future tourist accommodations. I'm certain those hotels charge more, for not really any more comfort. All driver's at the airport and local restaurant workers will know this hotel though you might have a hard time finding it yourself.
We were lucky, our hotel was new when we stayed there, friends stayed about the same time in another 4 or 5 star hotel and had to change rooms two times because the matress had little visitors who had eaten their home into the foam.....
They did have new beds in that hotel, so check the beds first before ou move in to a room..
Location near the wet market and walking distance to the river. The place was under renovation and so we got a bargain. The room was large for two with aircon and ceiling fan, attached bathroom and on ground floor.
At the reception, we could easily arranged for tour guide to Angkor as well as prepaid ticket to Phnom Penh via fast boat including transfer to the boat pickup at Tonle Sap.
Next door, the restaurant is reasonable, local Cambodia dishes with rice and popular with local business people.
Colonial bulding with a veranda looking out onto the river. Our room was a reasonable size with local furniture. Huge bed with ornate wooden headboard. The balcony was great accept that it looked out onto a multistory building site next door, so don't come here if you are a light sleeper and want a lie in. Staff are friendly and we arranged our remorgue-moto through them, $12 for the day around Angkor Wat etc. Unfortunately they missold us our boat tickets to Battambang. $20 dollars for a double, A/C, fan, TV, Balcony and free pick up from bus station and airport.
Pleasant room, you can enjoy a cold beer looking onto the dry river.
I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in May of 2007. I paid a negotiated price of $18/night for a room with a balcony. Room ammenities included TV, A/C, fridg. Breakfast was not included. Room was a bit on the small side and made even smaller by the enormous bed crammed into it. The bed was comfortable but was so big it looked rediculous in a room that size. Staff was relatively friendly and helpful. Internet was extra, there are about 4 computers on the 2nd floor veranda. In light of the rave reviews/references I had read on this hotel, I expected much more from this hotel than what was delivered. It was all very average. Located at the edge of the old section of town it is situated in a convenient location close to the market and many restaurants. Just not a very exciting place but nonetheless comfortable.
This may or may not not be to your liking. This hotel requires you to remove your shoes at the door. They have a large rack to put your shoes on and you are expected to wear slippers or go barefoot. Although the hotel is on a paved street, the floors were all white tile and I suppose a problem to keep clean. Something you may wish to consider before choosing this hotel. We have not come across any other guesthouses in Cambodia that required this.
Cosy, comfort and clean that is my first impression when entering the hotel.
The room itself is spacious and everything seems to be spotless clean, i have a view looking over siem reap town and long stretch of long houses.
Swimming pool is to die for especially in hot sunny day. Gym however was pretty basic. Treadmill wasnt working
