“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Can't recomend this hotel more! This boutique hotel is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap however close enough to walk to center of town (10min) or get a tuk tuk (3min) - that is if you want to leave the pool or balcony. Food and breakfast is great and service with a smile is nothing but 5 star. The staff will go out of their way to help and you are made to feel very welcome and special. Rooms are spacious and clean with free wifi in the rooms. Gardens are beautiful and poolside is relaxing. Will be staying here on my return to Siem Reap!!

Great freindly service. Beautiful pool and garden area and quiet atmosphere. Should've stayed longer. Close to town location means that Tuk Tuks aren't necessary to get to restaurants and bars. Staff are more than happy to meet almost any request.

All of June in Siem Reap, staying at Sonalong. Volunteering during the day at New Hope Cambodia and then coming home each afternoon to my large room with private balcony, to enjoy cold water and a fruit plate from my fridge. Then time in the fantastic pool which is surrounded by lush tropical gardens. It doesn't get any better than this if you want to stay within 10 minutes walk of the town centre, in a peaceful & quiet place. Highly recommend the staff and all of the dining and tour facilities on offer.

Room Tip: Deluxe Double upstairs is my pick

Walking distance to Pub Street this Boutique garden village is pure paradise. The rooms are fresh, clean and modern with great facilities. The pool is world class. The staff are very friendly and always willing to help. I stayed a whole week here and it was so quiet and peaceful and truly relaxing. Highly recommend.

An amazing little resort hotel, tucked away in a quiet side street, yet only minutes away by foot or friendly tuk tuk from all the restaurants and night life of Siem Reap's now famous "Pub Street" area. At the end of a hot and hectic two weeks work in neighbouring Vietnam, for me it was like coming home to be welcomed by Hak and his friendly staff for an all too short stay at Sonalong. Arriving late at night on a delayed flight, to be met at the airport by Hak's friendly driver, aptly named Mr Joy. Then to wake in the morning and step out into the beautiful gardens, and be treated like one of the family over breakfast in the delightful dining area. Not the first time I have had the pleasure of experiencing Mr Hak's hospitality and, the gods willing, it will not be my last. Like Arnie said "I'll be back" Hak.

Room Tip: All rooms are in quiet garden settings. It seems to be just a case of whether one prefers to be at...

I was referred to this hotel by a former tour guide colleague of Mr. Hak's in Hanoi. What a great recommendation. Clean, large, comfortable rooms with private balcony make up the 16 rooms in 8 two-story modern bungalows designed in traditional style. These set within a beautiful garden whose centerpiece is the large pool. The whole staff is friendly, English-speaking, and smiling service and information. The manager, Mr. Hak, is onsite and hands-on. Ready with suggestions, stories, and his knowledge of Cambodian history. As a former tour guide, he knows what it takes. His recommendation for a tour guide and tuk-tuk driver couldn't have been better! Over 3 days, we became friends. They even took me to a local place where I sat with a group of guides and drivers under the stars and shared beers and stories. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk to the heart of Siem Reap, the market, restaurants, tourist shops, the river, ..... A marvelous experience at a bargain price.

Room Tip: The second story rooms look out over the gardens and pool. You've got stairs, but worth the cli...

I appreciate having "my own space" after a hectic day and Sonalong gave me that. I also do not like entering hotel and then being enclosed. Super villas with rocking chair on my own balcony encompassed in beautiful grounds. Big pool. Rooms comfortable,large. Food nice and reasonable. Staff welcoming and helpful with on going travel. Good choice. I travel solo and the places I stay are based on reviews. So far selections pretty good and I rate more for staff, ambience, assistance unless basics are really lacking.

Room Tip: Always ask to look.
