I've been at SAMAR four nights in July 2015. Overall experience was marvellous. Hotel has 8 rooms only, large and comfortable, designed in colonial style with abudant use of timber and coupled with walking wardrobe and huge bathroom. Pool is always silent and ideal for resting after sunset. Staff is welcoming, pleasant end ready. SPA, satellite TV, fast wi-fi connection... More

I was back in Siem Reap in May and stayed again at The Samar with a group of friends. The staff remembered me and my habits... and this time they propose us to experience other activities such as a picnic on a platform on the Tonle Sap, some puppet show... lot of creativity and attention to details... it made us...

I came to Siem Reap for a mix between work and leisure and Samar Villa was the perfect fit. First, as I saw in many reviews, Bertrand and his team are always very attentive to our every need. They helped us organize various functions: from meals in unique restaurants, to temples visits and surprising platform rental with full service on... More

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the charm and good taste. Good location not too far from the center (5-10mn by tuk tuk). The room was charming with a large harem-like alcove (perhaps not for everyone: we found the creaking wooden floor charming - some people will see it differently). The swimming pool is of standard size and perfectly appropriate... More

We stayed here for 14 days to have time to enjoy one temple a day (and no more). I loved the atmosphere of this samll hotel, each room has a different decoration and character associated with the name of the room. You feel like home. The staff has been very hepfull and kind all along our stay. The price really... More

It is now our second day at Samar Villa, and we are ready to walk away from the prepaid 5 night stay that we cannot refund. We are more than happy to get out of here as soon as possible. Our problem was very simple. We are in Siem Reap on our honeymoon. Our room was impossible to sleep in,... More

I can fully understand that a young couple on honeymoon, a young couple living daily in the luxury and architectural excess of the Emirate of Dubai can be disappointed arriving in the great tranquility of Samar Villas, a small boutique hotel away from the big hotels, a haven of peace and a model of taste, the Boutique-hotel Samar Villas &...

We traveled here, hoping for a luxurious atmospheric stay. We were the only guests in the period of our stay, and somehow our relaxed non conform behaviour crashed totally with the expectations of the staff. We experienced a sterility without warmth. They were helpful. The real disappointment was the extra 150 US dollars we had to pay for a couple... More

Dear Pia-Alexandra We always welcome feedback and analyze them if they include elements to improve the quality of our services. From your comment on Trip Advisor, it is absolutely unjustified. You seem to have forgotten your bar and drinks in your room which is USD 80.80 and your meals is only USD 20.00. Below are the details for your invoice... More

A small hotel with only 9 rooms with a lovely & gracious staff. A quiet place away from the hustle of the city but only as tuk tuk ride from Pub Street. Special mention for Su Kim on reception who looked after us royally. Highly recommend The Samar if you want the Secret Retreat in a tourist town. Food excellent... More
