Day Inn Angkor Resort
We stayed at the Day Inn Angkor Resort for 3 nights. The hotel is a four star hotel located in the middle of Siem Reap town and only a few minutes walk to the old markets, pub street and restaurants.
The hotel is about 15 minutes drive from the Siem Reap Airport and 10 minutes drive to Angkor Wat.
The rooms are really lovely, some are decorated with rattan furniture and some with wooden furniture and they are quite spacious. All rooms have a balcony and the price includes a buffet breakfast.
The pool area is lovely. The outdoor patio is great for dinner and there is traditional music played by a Cambodian musician. Very peaceful and relaxing.
There is also the Tropicana Coffeshop & Restaurant serving Western and Khmer foods.
Have a cocktail at the lounge Bar with the big screen television.
All food and drinks were very reasonably priced and we would highly recommend staying at the Day Inn Angkor Resort.

Accommodation in Siem Reap
The hotel is resort like, not too big, very clean, with a large pool and service is good. It is quite centrally located on Oum Khun Street and about couple of mins away from old market/Pub Street using a Tuk-tuk. About 15 mins from the airport and a short drive to the Angkor temples.
The BF is ok although I hardly eat as I need to get up early to visit the temples.
I would rate it as a 3 star hotel, price is around $40 - 50 per night per room(2 BF included), again could be higher during the peak season. I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a bit of comfort but who do wish to pay high price accommodation. Small resort with nice pool & room.
Halfway through one of our Phnom Penh holidays Gary and I flew to Siem Reap for 3 days, I had not been there before but Gary was there about 14 years ago. He was in for a shock as things had definitely changed.
We caught the Mekong express bus back, but more on that later.
We stayed at the Day Inn Angkor Resort, a perfect choice and before we left home we had arranged via email to hire Marom Hem, a tuk tuk driver for our three days, his price was $10 per day.
We spotted Maron straight away when we came out of the airport and the claims were right, he certainly does have the cleanest tuk tuk in Siem Reap. Marom took us to our hotel and we organized for him to come back for us in 2 hours.
If we go back to Siem Reap we will definitely stay at the Day Inn Angkor Resort again, the staff were so friendly, great pool, rooms were nicely decorated and the breakfast buffet was delicious. I think the room cost us $70 Australian per night. It was also just a few minutes walk to shops etc.
For lots more info on our trips to Cambodia have a look at my link below:
We were only in Siem Reap for three days so our days were spent like this:
Day 1 was spent looking around shops, markets etc.
Day 2, we only bought a one day Temple pass and did a marathon 7 hours of going through temples, the pass cost $20 and you dont need a photo for a one day pass.
Day 3 we went on a tour of the National Silk Centre and shop (about 16 kilometres out of Siem Reap) and Artisans d' Angkor stone & wood carving centre & shop in Siem Reap. We also went to Aki Ra Landmine Museum.
We are going back to Phnom Penh in a few days time and will definately head for Siem Reap again in 2008.

Siem Reap 2006
"Siem Reap Day 1 & 2"
We arrived at the Siem Reap International Airport (7.00pm)and were transferred to our hotel, the Day Inn Angkor Resort, by a guide from Deithelm Travel. The hotel is a clean,comfortable and pleasant 3 star hotel.
Next morning at 8.00am we were picked up by our guide and taken to the Angkor Entry Pass centre to obtain our phot ID for our entance into any of the areas in the Angkor area. This was done with no fuss and only a little time waiting.
Our first stop was the North gate of Angkor Thom with a stop of about 20 minutes. From there we went on to Preah Khanh for a tour which took about 1.5 hours. Our final stop for the morning was at the Eastern Mebon which in it's heyday was actually an island and could only be reached by boat. From here it was back to the hotel and out of the heat for some lunch and a cool off.
3.00pm and were back out to Angkor Thom for a tour through the Bayon which took up a couple of hours. Our guide told us the the temperature had gotten to 46 degrees Cent. and 93% humidity the previous day. We were supposed to view the sunset but unfortunately the clouds cancelled this for us.
"Siem Reap Day 2"
Day 2 and picked up at 8.30am for our visit to Angkor Wat, we entered from the East, walked part way around to the south entry and viewed the friezes along the south and part of the west galleries. On entry to the main enclosure we wandered with our guide for about 1.5 hours and then a freind and myself climbed to the central and highest area. The climb to this area is very steep with high and quite narrow steps but the view from there is terrific. we exited the complex via the west entry across the causway and moat and back to the hotel for a break.
Our last tour was of Ta Prohm which has been left as it was covered in jungle and with tree roots growing over a lot of the walls and buildings. Because of this it feels as if you have just discovered it in the jungle.
I feel that the vist to Siem Reap was well worth the time and effort to get there and would reccomend it to anyone interested in Asian past cultures.
