Hotel 1961 is a unique and comfortable place to stay in Siem Reap. A place full of artistic pieces: books, photographs, paintings, posters, and old stuff that are created and improvised into interesting works of art. The people are genuinely welcoming and accommodating and gave us the best tour guide! For travelers who are into books and arts, and want... More

This is not your typical hotel where everything is provided and your comfort is everything to them. No this is not. The whole place is an artwork. And every corner is a piece. I was fortunate to be there when a gay Cambodian artist did an art exhibit. It was beautiful. The pictures of the hotel shown in the net... More

First, Hotel 1961 promises every visitor a unique experience of the artistic kind - and it delivers. Each room has an unpolished look and feel to it but this may very well be its main selling point, especially for austere travelers. Hotel 1961 also doubles as art gallery of sorts where visitors are treated to an exclusive viewing of art... More

First of all, this is my disclaimer: I am a Filipino based most of the year in Manila, the Philippines. Because of the nature of my life, and work, I travel quite often, but am always on a tight budget. I travel light and rarely carry a proper camera, nor do I photodocument most of my trips. Places I visit... More

Had a great time at Hotel 1961. Each room is so unique and well-curated. Have fun going around the hotel and looking at the different art pieces - you can buy some of them! We were lucky to have been there during the launch of an art exhibit. The best thing about this hotel would have to be the staff.... More

This place is a hoax and biggest disappointment of my travels. You browse their website: looks cool, and café, art gallery, dinning, shopping..wow; right? Nothing is farther from the truth. See, all the pictures I have attached. Feel free to ask question. Location: This place is in isolate and remote corner of the town in a bad neighborhood by sewer... More

I was intrigued by the previous reviews and images of the Hotel 1961. We are interest in progressive art and the combination of hospitality and art exhibits seemed like a natural fit...something different and an enhanced guest experience. In fairness to previous reviewers, guests and the owners of the Hotel 1961, this was not the right property for us and... More

The staff was the best part of our experience. They were warm and very accommodating. When we told them we didn't eat meat, they made sure we got plenty of fresh fruit for breakfast, and happily gave me all the delicious Cambodian coffee I could drink! The rooms and hotel did not look like the pictures we saw, and we... More

The staff of this hotel are very kind and it is the only thing that was good... The room is not the same as shown in the sites... It looks much better than it really is in the pictures. The toilet is terrible and they could improve the breakfast.
