La Villa Loti is neither a hotel nor a guesthouse but hopefully the best of both! It is a charming 8-room guesthouse made of wood. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated. The place is very cosy, romantic and peaceful. Ideal for couples, although they also have rooms for families downstairs. Daniel the owner, and his staff went out of their way to make our stay extra special. They arranged the car, driver and guide for us. Service is excellent! Each room has its own terrace with a hammock and triangle pillows. It is on a quiet street away from the cars and motorbikes. Breakfast is served from sunrise to sunset.
Aircon rooms, nice garden, terrace, hot/cold water shower, USD$40 per room per night inclusive of airport pick up and breakfast
The Pavillon in Siem Reap is a lovely oasis in a very unlikely location, on a dirt road that doesn't look too promising. But once inside the gates, you find yourself in the middle of a beautiful lush garden, dotted with small, pretty bungalows with small patios. The main hotel body is a 2-level traditional building with a swimming pool besides it.
This hotel is further from the Siem Reap proper, but closer to the temples. However, a return tuk-tuk ride into town is a whooping $3.
We stayed in a bungalow suite (could have slept 4) with a beautiful patio that included a dining table with 2 chairs, a coffee table with 2 armchairs and a hammock. To get to it, we had to follow the "yellow brick road" meandering through the garden and through another pavilion. Gorgeous colonial style, mosquito nets over the beds, tasteful artwork decorating the room. Air conditioning, hot shower.
The hotel arranged airport pick-up/drop-off for $5 each way, and a tuk-tuk driver to the temples for $12 per day. We were lucky to get a great driver, who recommended us some out of the way temples where we were the only visitors.
Also, we booked a trip to a fishing village (Komplong Phluk) on the Tonle Sap lake through the hotel. They did a great job arranging it. It was not cheap ($40 per person), but it was worth every cent!
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.
its a nice hotel . with a nice mini swimming pool. but you can find ant in the room...but its in Cambodia la :)
I spent three nights at Palm Vilage. The staff and accomidations were first rate. The grounds were beautifully manicured, and I especially enjoyed the perch at the top of the tower. I only ate breakfast at Palm Village, but it was delightful. I would recomend this place highly. My travel partner and I hired a driver/guide through the hotel and he was excellent.
The grounds and the pool were very peaceful. The Palm Village is the closest accomodations to Angkor Wat. The neighborhood has a lot of Khemer charachter.
The ruins of Angkor don't have any hotels or other accomodation within its boundaries, but fortunately the bustling town of Siem Reap is only minutes away down the road. It has pretty much everything the traveller needs, including accomodation ranging from cheap guesthouses to upmarket hotels. See my page on Siem Reap for information on the town.
There are lots of places from 5 US dollars or so upwards (right up to about 200 dollars a night and more!) in Siem Reap. A great resource, other than VT, for finding accomodation is the Siem Reap Angkor Visitors guide (website below).
This is a Japanese owned guesthouse. You take off your shoes at the entrance but you can use the pair of flip flops which are in the guest rooms. The web site is in Japanese but worth checking the picutres.
We had a corner room on the second floor. It was large, clean, and sunny. The room was with an AC, TV, mini fridge, ceiling fan, tiled floor, and simple hot shower in the bathroom.
The AC was weak but worked fine with the ceiling fan. It was not like staying at a hotel as it was described on their site but was comfortable. We felt pretty safe staying there since the security guard was at the gate all day long. The only draw back was that the owner kept his dogs by the side of the house, the court yard area, in small cages most of the time (due to the conflict with wild dogs in neighborhood--according to the staff), not particularly well taken care of to my eyes. Some area in the court yard smelled sometimes despite the daily cleaning by the staff.
It was US$18/night with breakfast and dinner. Many guesthouses in Siem Reap charge around $5/night so this was not the cheapest guesthouse but it was worth the price with all these amenities. Overall, I do recommend this place.
We hired the private driver and the guide through this guest house. The private tour prices were reasonable but were not presented well in advance. I wished they had a price list.
**many thanks to LeDragon and Bernithetraveler for their help before the trip.**
If you don't care much for hotels but like to have a bit more than cheap guest houses, this would be a good place for you. I bleieve there are many nice guest houses in Siem Reap so look around.
All rooms come with a private bathroom (hot shower), mini bar, TV and AC. The price includes breakfast, dinner, and 24 hour internet use in the lobby area. The staff gives you a frozen bottle of mineral water as you go out to the day tour in the morning (free).
Nat, one of the staff was especially helpful (see the picture). He made our stay happy and pleasant. He speaks Japanese well and English reasonably. According to him, he is going to be a Japanese speaking tour guide soon. I believe he will be a great guide; he is pleasant, honest, hard-working, and really funny!
Mandalay Inn has an inviting tone to it, so I entered and was overwhelmed by the warmth of the reception and immediately decided I must stay here. Spacious rooms which are airconditioned, felt so good entering them after walking through the heat of the day.
Burmese owned and having recently arrived from Yangon, felt nostalgic and the staff are all burmese with the typical burmese affectionate behaviour
My room was very quiet, hot and cold water and worth much more than the fee charged. very attentive service and of course, it is right on sivatha road, downtown, close to everything
Burmese Hospitality. Spacious Rooms, Quiet.
Maung Maung Myo Thaung runs the place and you can find other friendly burmese on the premises.
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.
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.
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
My stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia makes me so at ease when I checked into 13th Villa. The servers at this newly build villa can speak good English & room charges can be considered as one of the best deal in town.
Some special things I observed during my stay with 13th Villa are:
1) Single bill & no tipping are required. Each room or group will have a special notebook to record your food & beer consumptions. This single bill will be settled on last day before you leave, which inclusive of room charges, tuk-tuk fares, food & drinks.
2) One stop for all the services & transport arrangement. We hired the tuk-tuk, making transport arrangement & any enquiry about next day trip are all well planned & considered.
3) Flexible room setting. Every room is well equipped with air-conditioning, fan, hot shower, and you can request for each of them turn on separately with minimal incremental charges. The main console panel to control these facilities is very well planned. We can actually request for better room comfort without changing & moving from room to room.
We did not stay but went there for the afternoon tea. We relaxed at the balcony overlooking the pool area. It was a different world from a local life.
This is a nice upscale luxury hotel. If you're the kind of traveler prefers luxury and not so interested in experiencing local lifestyle, this would be a nice place to stay.
This is a clean, cheap, and nice guest house right outside Siem Reap, near the temples. They have nice rooms with bathrooms and fans or a/c. They have a bar and resaturant and can arrange transportation and tours. This is a european managed hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Comfortable, clean rooms, restaurant, bar, garden, a/c or fans, and more...
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.
