4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

- I think many of the negative reviews are old. At least some of the rooms have been renovated recently; It is nicer than I recall from previous visits, but at the same price. - Room 100: spacious and well lighted, Very comfortable queen bed (among the best slumbers I've had in a month of travel in Asia). It also... More

As with any hotel at this level you take the good with the bad. We paid a little extra for the river view room which was still a reasonable price. In fact, without the view there wouldn't have been much else to say. Enjoying their room service breakfast over the river in the morning was fantastic. Not the food itself,... More

Of the many similarly-graded hotels that I have patronized throughout SEAsia over the last 8 months, I assign my own 5 Star rating to the Three Star River Star Hotel. Its location is perfect--right on the riverfront, especially with a 4th Floor river view room that has a balcony & a small table with chairs. I spent much time watching... More

No breakfast included though I booked some. Staff is friendly yet speaks hardly English. Though bus transfer to Siem reap was managed Rooms okay clean but nice. River is opposite the road. Nice restaurants in the vicinity as well as supermarkets and bars.

Renovated earlier this year and I was happily surprised to see it. Staying at the hotel was doing me not so much annoying as comfortable. Should you have anything about your room, the hotel clerks dare to help you no matter how difficulties in linguistic matters there might be some to compromise, or you don't know any of Khmer words...

I have booked a River Star Hotel because of its location in Riverside. I was wrong. The hotel is new but needs a good renovation. The rooms and bathrooms also. Maintenance is not good. Not clean.Dirty stains on the floor corridors and lifts. On the positive side of this hotel are location and friendly staff, but it can not cover... More
