Bungalow in City Center
The charming small La Noria Hotel Siem Reap is situated in the heart of the city, overlooking the river. The guest rooms are basic but comfortable with outside terraces. You can have your choice for air-con or fan, with different rates. Ideal for relaxing and appreciating the surrounding beautiful tropical garden and a swimming pool. Transfer time from Siem Reap Airport is approximately 20 minutes drive away. Outside Terrace with chairs.
a big vat full of water in the bathroom, was told it's Cambodian tradition, but not sure what it's for.
La Noris is a pleasant, french-owned hotel in Siam Reap and has several bungalows and a swimming pool, which is especially nice after a long day at Angkor.
Try in Siem Reap: 'Sawasdee...
Try in Siem Reap: 'Sawasdee restaurant' just behind LA NORIA htl, and on the same road but after the National Hwy6 the 'Chavlit Thai restaurant'.
You must go to the 'Chavlit Thai restaurant', not for the choice of his menu, but for his incomparable ambience... reserve in advance if you want the best outside table. In 'Sawasdee restaurant' you can choice among a lot of very good and spice dishes and you can eat accompanied by a little khmer musical group.
LOVED Siem Reap!
Siem Reap was absolutely awesome. A great place to visit, and more kid-friendly than we expected. While the temples are beautiful, they often cannot hold a youngster’s interest too long unless there is climbing involved (our kids are 4, 6, and 8), but there were enough other things to do that the kids looked back on the visit as great!
"More kid-friendly than we'd have thought....."
If you are going with kids, I’d recommend the following activities while there (in addition to the temples)….you can find the addresses in the local guides:
- Lunch at Butterflies Gardens. Nice restaurant that is totally enclosed in a net, and full of butterflies and a koi pond. They pay rural children to bring in colorful butterflies every week.
- Dinner at Dead Fish. Thai restaurant with a live crocodile pit. Lots of fun to walk around in. Careful to watch small kids – lots of lofts with no barriers to discourage steep drops
- Dinner / Shadow Puppet & Apsara Dance Show at La Noria Hotel. Very entertaining, especially for kids. There are some other places that do this as well.
- Shopping at Artisans d’Angkor. Do all of your gift shopping here. Lots and lots of different items made by rural artisans trained on site. Was very interesting to walk through.
- Royal Independence Gardens in early evening. Large fruit bats begin to stir and then fly off.
- FCC. We ate lunch here one day. Expensive, but good food with several kid-friendly items….
- Shopping and Eating in the Old Market section. Lots of food choices, nice atmosphere. Several places to get ice cream, etc.

"Sofa-on-the- wheels" - how to find it?
I heard that there is a "sofa on the wheels" (a kind of tuk-tuk, but with sofa) in Siem Reap.
Is it better than a car?
How can I find it in SR, or every hotels has it?
How much it is?
Re: "Sofa-on-the- wheels" - how to find it?
i used that sioa-on-wheels last august. One guy that is waiting customer outside of the La Noira/la Noria hotel has that kind of vehicle. We saw many others those things, so i assume you dont have any problem to hire it.
Siem Reap is very small place and al these "things" are for rent. Just wave your arm when you see one of.
Have a nice time!
