Mandalay Inn: Nice Place To Come Back To Every Evening

I found this little gem in the net. On-line reservation is available. Pick up from Bus Station and Pier is free.

The room is clean, spacious and elegantly decorated. The walls are layered with leave weavings, giving it a rustic look.

My only grouse is the air-con is old and noisy.

The inn is located at the most secure area of town center; 3 minutes' walk (about 15 meter) to famous Pub Street and Old Market. Other amenities like banks, convenient stores, restaurants, massage parlours and shops are within walking distance.

There is an in-house restaurant that serves tasty Asian dishes at reasonable rate. The staff is attentive and friendly.

Verdict: Value for money. Good place to stay.

Note: Credit card is NOT accepted.

Palm village and Siem reap villa: Affordable yet comfortable

Since there are so many choices in siem reap, i decided to choose Palm village and siem reap villa during my 3days 2 nights in SR.

Palm village
This place is very secluded. The food is good, the service is good, the price is affordable and the room is great but however, don't ever think of stepping out of this place as there is practically nothing outside. So get all your stuff ready (toothbrush, facial etc) beofre checking in

Siem Reap villa
After checking out from palm village, i highly recommend SR villa as apart from the good points mentioned for Palm village, SR villa is near to the old market (8 minutes walk) yet away from the noisy environment of pub street.

Hotel de la Paix: Serenity in the midst of the city

When you arrive at the hotel, you will be greeted by the doorman, and ushered into the hotel. Right at the entrance is a beautiful serene statue of a woman, and a fresh lotus bud is placed in her hands each morning. If you have a guide, you will be ushered into the lobby bar, which is a modern looking lounge pit with neon lights across the bar front that change colors every few minutes. The waitresses will offer you water or juice, with fresh pineapple or other fruit. Fresh lotus blossoms are place on each table or tray. The lounge pit has large "beds" you can relax on while waiting for your room to be ready. The guide will register you, and you will be escorted to your room by the bell staff. The room has a large picture window with white sheer drapes and heavier drapes for night use. The view is of the courtyard, with its large banyan surrounded by stepping stones and a pond, is very serene.

The rooms are a decent size, with a killer bathroom! The room had two double-sized beds, pushed together, and a nightstand on each side. The bedding was luxurious, with large overstuffed pillows for lounging, and terrycloth robes on a tray waiting for you. The bathroom included a tub with a faucet that was more like a small waterfall. The side of the tub had sliding doors so you could open it up and watch television from the tub. The shower stall had a large "rainfall" showerhead, as well as a hand-held shower head. The stall had a glass door with a soft light overhead. The lighting in the room was so complex that we took a while to figure it out. The bed closest to the door had the master switch so all the room's lights could be turned out when it was time to go to bed. Otherwise, you'd have to hunt and switch off lights before retiring.

If you stay at the Hotel de la Paix, you have to visit the pool. It is located on the second floor, and is just beautiful. The pool is quite large, but less than 4' deep. You can swim around, or just wade. There are jacuzzi jets along the side of the main part of the pool, with seating so you can enjoy the jets. If you move under the bridge, you will pass by quiet private areas of the pool, so more than one party can enjoy the pool at the same time. There is a bridge to cross over the pool to the lounging cabanas big enough for two or four people. At night, the lights highlight the plants and carved pillars, making the experience very relaxing and serene.

Once you're done with the pool, check out the restaurants in the hotel. There is the main restaurant, where very modern foods are served. The prices are reasonable, and the food interesting. The same restaurant serves a breakfast buffet, which I would recommend. There is also a small deli located in the back corner of the hotel. The food there was great, and we ended up eating dinner there on our last night.

Most importantly, a portion of the revenue from the Hotel de la Paix goes to fund the local orphanage, so staying there will help benefit the community.

City River Hotel: Good Location and Service

It is just a few minutes walk away from the Old Market Place area. The service staff are friendly and provide good assistance in showing directions and giving recommendations. The room is satisfactory, except for some weird smell from the water at the basin. The water at the bath tub is fine though.

The breakfast provided is considerably good given the price. They make great bacons and pancakes. But my fav has got to be the corn fritters. The hot soya bean milk is a nice complement to their breakfast menu too.

You should try out their amok at their restaurant. It is rich and sinfully delicious as it comes served in a coconut.

Grand Angkor Wat: Raffles

I came here for lunch - paid around $50 and got food poisoning from the Caesar Salad. The hotel was full of fat Americans talking very loudly. Most people seemed to stay in the hotel, they could have been in the Costa del Sol for all they cared!

FCC: well worth the extra money

looked after all the time we were there.

Good sized well designed modern rooms

big colonial bar and restaurants to sit in

pool

It was a great place to come back and relax in after seeing temples. Not a chain hotel, its a unique place that gets all the details right

good food and service. Sets you up for a day running round temples.

good conversion of an existing building. Used to be the French Governers residence then an army barracks.

Taxi driver described it as expensive, but thats because he wanted to sell us to some other hotel. But we had prebooked and were glad we did

City Royal Hotel: Affordable accommodation

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, and I had a really pleasant time.

My twin bedded room was clean and comfortable, and I was most impressed with their efficient housekeeping services. My single/twin room costs 50 USD per night.

The hotel has a main restaurant which operates for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Room reservations come with an offering of American breakfast, so you don't have to worry about not getting your fill before you head out for your Angkor explorations.

Service in the restaurant was prompt though this may be a little biased as I only ate my dinners there and the restaurant only had a couple of diners at that period.

The menu has an extensive list of cuisines such as Thai, Cambodian and International (Western) dishes. I ordered some fish and chips, and pork cutlet with honey sauce, and they were delicious although I wouldn't say they were exceptional. They only cost 5 to 8 USD and I'd say that's value for money.

For 50 USD per night, this is a good deal.

Day Inn Angkor Resort: Comfort Just Off The Main Road

A real find for me. This new hotel is clean, has good sized rooms and excellent bathrooms. All the rooms are in a courtyard style over two floors and overlook the superb swimming pool.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke good enough English. The buffet breakfast was a great start to the day and on the occasion that I had an evening meal there the menu was varied enough and cheap by hotel standards. Internet facilities are available for a small charge

Excellent staff, always courteous and willing to chat and offer advice. Swimming pool was always good to come back to after a long day, very comfortable rooms and numerous satellite channels available. A very nice touch was the travel adaptor that coped with all the different plug types I have ever encountered, a thoughtful touch.
Ten minutes walk or two minute tuk tuk ride to town

Golden Temple Villa: Very rude and gangster like owner

Before deciding on the accomodation, we were contemplating a few places to stay and Golden Temple Villa was one of it. Somehow we didn't choose this villa because of
it's price.

What follows was an unexpected e-mail from the owner of the villa using four-letter words
and cursing my friend's entire family for cancelling our stay at their villa.

I don't know about what it's like to be staying there but with this kind of response, I am glad I chose another inn instead.

Mandalay Inn: Very homely

Lots of tourists have stayed in this inn and come away with great feedback.
Well! I am another one.

Very honest and friendly owner and staffs.
There were so honest and down to earth that they didn't even recommend their own
restaurant when we ask for an authentic local food.

On the last night before we left for home, we decide to eat at their inn.
Didn't try on the first night cause their restaurant decor doesn't look much but don't
judge this restaurant by its cover.

If you are the adventurous type, ask the owner's wife to cook for you and don't bother
about ordering. She will know what are the dishes to cook for you based on your nationality.
I am from Malaysia and love lots of spice in my dishes and she did just that for my dishes.

WOW!! Unbelievable... best Khymer food in Siem Reap.

Mandalay Inn: Excellent place to stay -

We selected Mandalay Inn after reading a few good review on Virtual Tourist. The outlook of the Inn is not attractive but the room are very spacious for the price that we paid. The published price is USD20 but we got it for USD16 as we stayed there for 4 days in a row. The rooms are exceptionally clean and spacious, especially if you travel in big groups. The services provided by the owner (husband and wife) and their staff are superior as we feel like coming home.
The Inn is very near to the bar street which make finding food easy. In addition, the restaurant in Mandalay Inn is also very nice... home cook food by the owner's wife.

La residence d'Angkor -Pansea: Designer hotel in Siem Reap

Is worth even a visit if you have a small budget. I went to the one in Yangon (myanmar) as well for dinner and is also a highlight on my trip. Lighted candles floating on the pool, life traditional music while you dine in the outdoor terrace...

Amazing atmosphere, the rooms are beautifully appointed with four poster beds and amazing bath tubs. French cuisine

Le Meridien Angkor: Luxury closest to the temples

Rooms in Le Meridien Angkor are large and plush. They offer cable TV (with CNN, the BBC, Deutschewelle, and movie and educational channels); comfortable beds; a sofa, chairs, and a desk; an in-room safe; and a good selection of accessories in large bathrooms.

The concierge will arrange for a guide (charged to your room) and a driver with car or tuk-tuk (paid directly) for visits to the nearby temples. Three internet stations are available at US$1 for ten minutes' use. There are also a couple of shops without much of interest on their shelves.

A complimentary breakfast is served in the Angkor Cafe from 5:30am; it then stays open till 10pm with Cambodian and 'international' dishes (from spaghetti carbonara to hamburgers). The formal restaurant is said to offer gourmet Northern Italian cuisine. A buffet dinner is served in the courtyard three nights a week with a show featuring nicely costumed dancers. Snacks are also served at the pool; the hotel will pack a picnic lunch; and room service is available 24 hours.

The service is attentive and friendly.

Home Sweet Home Guesthouse

This guesthouse was very clean and very nice. No air conditioning but the rooms have very high ceilings with ceiling fans. Very comfortable at night. Rooms very cheap. Also has a restaurant attached to the guesthouse. Very close to the Bayon Restaurant too. Has cable tv. Has a nice patio with beautifully intricately carved rocking chairs where you can go and rest and write in your travel journal or just enjoy a cool drink during the hot Cambodian day.
