We stayed here as a base to explore Angkor Wat and it is just 10 minutes by tuk-tuk from there, the hotel ordered our 04h45 TT to take us to Angkor for the sunrise experience. Well worth the early start, this is a truly spectacular experience and quite possibly the highlight of my Asia travels (still 17 days to go)....... More

Thank you for your lovely comment full of humor "so british" I'm glad to hear you like your stay with us In terms of insects, we treat three times a week the garden and rooms, but during the beginning of the rainy season it is impossible to completely eradicate these little tropical beasts … I hope we will have again...

This is my SECOND TIME travelling to Siem Reap on a vacation and second time that I chose to stay in this hotel. My first review on this hotel is fabulous!!! I believe it's due to its newly opened nature. However, this second time of mine was horribly treated and spoiled by the French hotel manager which was really rude... More

Thought this place was great. Room and bathroom were incredible and impeccably clean, pool and gardens beautiful with good beaching area. Staff are sweet and helpful, maybe slightly judgmental of our drinking, but who can blame them. Food is incredible especially the freshly baked croissants and pain au chocolat that would not be out of place in a French patisserie.... More

Way above our expectations. I'm very sensitive with decoration, design and ambiance when I stay in hotels and I have to say that I've been impressed by Samar Villas, Loved everything. It's clean and neat and the staff from the airport transfer, front desk, breakfast service and housekeeping were very friendly and smily (which become rare in some hotels around... More

With only 8 rooms, this is a tiny hotel compared to many others in the city. But it has the services that surpasses the bigger establishments. The deco is both Cambodian with a French touch. There is a bit of history in every corner of the hotel. The room we had was cozy and spacious. The staff are attentive and... More

This is your home away from home, especially if you stay in the Samar Villa or the Fou Nan villa. Completely detached from from the other suites, and it exceeded my expectations, I am glad I did not choose the Park Hyatt over this, as it was not far from the Angkor sites and city centre, but guaranteed to have...

Love this property, very good and friendly service, convenient for temples visit and comfortable well designed rooms. Discovered them through Secret Retreats, great new hotel brand across Asia featuring boutique hotels with unique traits. Very different experience from previous stays where we used larger more touristy hotels.

The hotel is situated a bit further away from the town centre, hence is not very convenience. As we have hired a private tour guide, so the location does not bother us. The hotel rooms are smaller than we expected and did not have enough lights.... Other than that, the hotel is clean and cosy!

Lovely small property furnished and decorated with an absolute refined taste. 8 rooms around a nice black swimming pool and a nice little restaurant with an open kitchen. Very near the site of Angkor wat and away from the crowed and noise in the city.

Do yourself a favour and do not stay at this hotel. Go somewhere else instead.You would be treated better if you were a convict in a concentration camp. Bad service, bad management, bad cooking, bad food, bad attitude.
