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.

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 were welcoming & accommodating! I have nothing but praises for them. Loven was helful with his email replies. John, Dara, 'Barang' & Pol were amazing!

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.

My daughter and I had a memorable Cambodia experience, Loven and Faith made our stay in Siem Reap something we will cherish. The accommodation in the Hotel was excellent because of the warmth and hospitality of the staff. Great breakfast and on the last day before we flew back home, the dinner prepared for us was unforgettable! Plan to go... More

We stayed at Hotel 1961 for 4 days & 3 nights. It's a 10 minute tuktuk ride from the Old Market and Pubstreet. They have an airport pickup service for you so there's no need to commute from the airport to the hotel. Loven, the owner, is a great host and gladly helped us on our itinerary, touristy and non-touristy... More

Unfortunately we could stay for just 2 nights, I wish it would have been longer. This hotel is kind of a small juwel in Siem Reap. The rooms are decorated lovingly, the owner Loven is a really nice person and a great host. We got a tasty breakfast although we had to leave at 6.30 in the morning. When we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
1961 is primarily an address for art.This is an ART HOTEL. If you are a backpacker or a budget traveler booking our hotel just because our rates suit your budget then we are not the hotel for you! WE ARE THE HOTEL FOR ARTISTS, ART ENTHUSIASTS and TRAVELERS SEEKING CREATIVE NOURISHMENT.Housed in a 1960’s style villa which was formerly a private home turned into a local karaoke bar and then now being resurrected into a creative complex comprising of a series of galleries, artists’ and designers’ studios, dining & shopping destinations including an eight-room “creative hotel”, 1961 came to us as an inspiration to the “nowness” of how we all imagined the future to be in the sixties. The decade of revolutions in art, fashion, architecture, politics, and music, the 60’s was also Cambodia’s golden age.In the purest sense of the word, we are not a hotel, but a creative space where one can stay and immerse into a world of artists, poets, musicians and writers. Not only do we allow guests to indulge in the artists’ worlds, we also encourage them to take part in the process of the creation of the room as a living art space.Eight different rooms present itself as mini galleries that host individual spaces of artistry from curated beddings, hand printed pillow cases, book-filled shelves, and walls riddled with literary musings. A movie and music specialist changes the selections everyday. ... more   less
