More about Prince D'Angkor Hotel & Spa
HOw to decide where to stay
It was a really lovely 4 star hotel. BUT for the price we paid USD 60 per night, i think we could have got much better accomodation. We were not sure about the place and booked via internet. We also did not want to stay anywhere dodgy. But Siem Riep is not dodgy in the least. Definitely not like the sex tourism focused Thailand. A nice place could cost around USD15 - USD30 and you won't be disappointed.
Prince D' Angkor was very nice. Good TV channels. Excellent breakfast. Good sized bath and Queen bed (though we thought for the price a King was in order). Decent sized room, though again I've seen bigger for a lot less in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Bangkok, Thailand (close to SReap and more urban cities).
There was a nice pool and the staff were good about meeting our needs. But honestly, I would not recommend it from a budget perspective. The place was located quite near the Bar streets and it took around 20 minutes by Tuk Tuk to the Wats and another 20-30minutes to the airport. So location wise it was good. However, there are many many hotels that are around this area. Infact it may even be a good idea to get there, get into a cab and drive around to see which place suits you most. No real need to book ahead except fear of overbooking. (Live dangerously!)
There was a spa, but we went to another more cost effective one (USD8 for full body massage for 2ppl). Infact there was a hotel right opposite this one (Neak Pean or something) which looked nicer and cost USD25!
Great location, closer to 3 star.
Stayed at PD'A for 3 nights in Jun 2007.
Excellent location unlike the awful large Korean hotels which line the strip to the airport. Easy walk into town, more interesting to stroll than tuk tuk.
Hotel was ok, had a Junior Suite, wasnt really suite at all. For the same amenities (plus the fact we were out of the room most of the time) the basic room would have sufficed.
Hotel is more 3 than 4 star, just due to little nuances. For example the amateurish clingwrapped bars of soap in the bathroom. The crockery at breakfast, although monogrammed with hotel logo, was chipped, and the food appeared to have been sitting in those bain maries a while (we opted for fresh baguettes for 25c at the old market the next morning).
Check in was easy and and early check in wasnt a problem, though i suspect this is easy anywhere is Siem Reap as most flights come in around 9am.
All in all a fine choice for our needs (seeing town and temples) but for a more luxurious choice in an excellent location, would recommend De La Paix (most other hotels are too isolated).
This is an exceptional hotel, rooms look just as the picture suggests on their website. Good size rooms, very clean. From the moment you arrive you are treated like VIP's. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always greeting you and opening doors for you, the food was good for both breakfast and dinner. Excellent location in the centre of town, not noisy and a short stroll to the markets and Bar street. A hotel suitable for those with a bit more to spend that love the luxuries. I highly recommend the spa for massages daily also. There is absolutely nothing I can fault about this hotel. I wish other hotels would take a leaf out of their book. Do stay here if it is within your budget.
Hotel Prince D'Angkor, preferred choice in Siem Reap
Near to Old Market, 10 mins slow pace walk. Only 20 mins from Airport. Located in a prime district convenient to any place especially Old Market for USD$1 motodup.
Deluxe Room is exceptionally beautiful with Flat TV, DVD player. Well decorated with Indochine forest wood, parquet flooring, nice bed, comfortable sofa, modern glass door bathroom, and a nice balcony overlooking the swimming pool. From the moment when you open the door, you will see the pool. It's a beauty. Satelite TV has 50 over channels and if you could spend 1 week in Siem Reap, you can really enjoy in room watching TV programmes.
Salt water swimming pool. Nice enough to swim and enjoy a good swim. Has a gym, a pool table, bbq facilties, and a huge restaurant where you will have breakfast.
Staff will give you a welcome drink and are very polite in escorting guests to rooms and will make your stay a pleasant one. Most of them speak little English, but overall, able to serve your needs.
INHOUSE SPA AND MASSAGE
Has an inhouse professionally run spa and massage, however it doesn't come cheap compare to those massage parlours in Old Market area.
I believe there are suites as from the pool, you can see very nice rooms in the other block that has a verandah that overlooks the pool. However, for couples, a deluxe room is good enough, it cost only USD$50++.
5 out of 5. 2 thumbs up. Valeu for money. Will definitely return to stay.
Expericne Angkor without the High Price
Cambodia is a once in a life time trip for both me and a friend of mine. Therefore, when looking for a hotel, we turned to Trip Advisor. We choose the Price D Angkor Hotel due to the numerous reviews and succeses that others have had here; however, nothing can compare to the succeses that we had once we arrived.
When I first contacted the hotel everything was done via email. The staff provided us with alot of perks.
-Airport transportation (Very Important)
-25% off their spa
-Local Tour Guide Arrangements
-Local Driver Arrangements
-Currency Exchange w/1% transactions fee
Overall, the hotel far exceeded my expectations. There are plenty of hotels in the area; however, this one is in the middle of town. The staff is very professional and speaks English well. It is first class service all the way here. They walk you to your room, carry you luggage and ensure your stay is exceptional. I had the time to experience a massage at the spa and spend time in the pool. It was great.
While the hotel is in the middle of the town you are overwhelmed once you pass the security gates. For example, you leave the area and you are hassled by beggers and have to deal with day to day life. This hotel is literally in the center of town. While the hotel staff says it is a safe area, I would be concerned if I traveled alone. Just be careful, travel in groups and you will be fine.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area. In my opinion you are here to see the sight and sounds while having an enjoyable place to stay. With the staff and the ammenities this hotel is able to offer all the above.
Bad& expect same breakfast daily and noisy breakfast crowd.
Room=4 stars.Breakfast=2 stars(expect to accept very,very noisy breakfast crowd,there from wed to sun) .Location=4 stars(15-20 mins walk to the Old Market).Facilities=2 stars.
Excellent location and top hotel to stay at to experience the magnificent temples of Angkor. Has received some excellent reviews and rightly so. Swiming pool is great and rooms are decent. Very good location to take a tuk tuk to Angkor Wat and surrounding temples. Good location also to go to Bar Street.
New and clean
Well,we went to Siem Reap in September, not a very good time to go as it was raining cats and dogs. With a baby and her grandparents in tow, thank god we have a nice hotel to chill in (the rooms come with 82 channels of TV Programme! )
Hotel is pretty new and very clean(thumbs up) .The pool is apparently salty water, dont know whats the difference, but its a nice feature nevertheless.Many Asian tour groups booked the hotel. Breakfast is only so so but the noodle soup section is pretty good.
Just a walk away from the town centre, if u r too lazy to walk u can always take the tuk tuk thats parked perpetually outside the hotel.
What a great little hotel!
I stayed in Room 501 which is just off the courtyard with the pool. It was a garden style room, very clean and well-kept, and the only complaint was that the bed is a little harder than I would like it, but the sheets and pillows were excellent nonetheless. The staff were all professional and courteous. The breakfast was okay (the orange juice was tang-like), but at least the coffee was filtered (not instant). The location is central and there is a cook your own soup restaurant and market in the same block on the left hand side.
Excellent location and hotel
We stayed at the Prince D'Angkor for 4 nights recently. The hotel is very well located and a very short walk to the restaurants and markets. Siem Reap is quite small but it still makes more sense to be close to the nightlife. We travelled with a small child and he was looked after very well. There is a supermarket just outside and plenty of other shops. The massage centres very close by are much cheaper than the hotel massage and are highly reccomended.
The room was spacious and comfortable. It was a little dated (not 5 star) but more than adequate. We had garden view rooms which I think are a little larger. Room service was excellent and cheap.
The pool is lovely and quite large. The staff were very friendly and attentive.
Overall a well located hotel which provides and excellent base for the real reason to visit Siem Reap: the temples.
