“Great accom but its the staff who win me over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Very happy with the room & Hotel (oh, and also the standard of fellow guests ;-)).
But it's the desk staff, housekeepers & lady at breakfast that endear me to Angkor Pearl.
Always enjoy a banter with the warm & friendly Miss Moniroth & Miss Leakhena and the two gentleman at reception, as well as with the lovely Miss Phalla at breakfast.
But isn't that what endears you to Siem Reap? - The Khmer.
Temples & other attractions are great, but its the Khmer who provide my heart with a warm memory.
(Annoying tuk tuk drivers are an exception)

I was first attracted to this hotel by the generally good reviews it received from its guests. A tuk-tuk driver holding a small banner with my full name written on it waiting for me on arrival was the first pleasant surprise. I did not mind the tuk-tuk ride at all, as it meant free airport pick up (which normally costs USD10) and a great way to see Siem Reap. Checking in was lightning fast and I was given this huge and nicely furnished Deluxe Double Room, with free wifi, free breakfast, hundreds of tv channels and a bath tub. I was mostly impressed by the high quality furnitures they used to furnish the room. The free breakfast was basic, but with enough variety and regularly replenished. The staff are very polite and helpful. The hotel employed a number of tuk-tuk drivers who can take you anywhere you want at a fraction of the price charged by tour agents. A day trip to the temples will cost USD15 for the tuk-tuk ride (inclusive of waiting time) and an additional USD20 for entrance fee. Dont forget to tip the drivers (USD1-USD2), they are mostly nice people.
They are nice Vietnamese and local Cambodian restaurants nearby the hotel, which are much cheaper than those located at city centre especially at Pub Street. You can take a tuk-tuk to the city centre (Night Market, Pub street or Old Market) for just a dollar, or you can stroll along the eventful yet safe Taphul Village street for a little over 10 minutes before you reach the National Highway. The main attractions will be just a stonethrow away from the highway. On your way back to your hotel room, grab some nice grilled/ steamed sausages offered by the street vendors (tasty and cheap too) for your night snack.
One last surprise was a gift (a nice locally made shawl I think) handed out to you upon checking out. A ride back to the airport can be arranged with the hotel's tuk-tuk driver at USD5 only.
Really enjoyed my stay, will definitely make a comeback to this hotel again.

I stayed at this hotel last August 25-27. We booked a triple room. the airconditioning was good. The room is very spacious. It has all the basics. We stayed at room 212. The only downside was that the lock of the bathroom door was broken. Also, the tour that they offered was very nice. They also booked us to the Apsara show. Mr. Vuth Kohm was very fast in anwering queries via email. They also gave us souvenirs (scarf) when we left. I wouldn't mind staying at this hotel again.

Stayed at the Angkor Pearl just at the end of August.

It's a very good hotel with nice decor and ambiance.

Rooms are very spacious; service is excellent and the massage is very good.

Provided by the hotel, Mr Chan was my tuktuk driver around the temples; a very nice man who drives safely always wearing his helmet.

Stayed at The Angkor Pearl for 2 nights in July 2013. I was very impressed with how clean and comfortable the rooms were, and I honestly couldn't say one bad thing about the whole place. We had 3 people in one room and they put 3 comfortable beds in there - and we still had a bunch of space. The bathroom was fabulous - marble countertops and luxurious fixtures... and the best shower I've had in a while! At check in, the staff were AWESOME... Walked us to our room and provided everything for us. The included buffet breakfast is delicious - with everything from omelets to hash browns to rice and vegetables. Check out was also a great experience as the staff gave us a small souvenir to take with us. Incredible place - amazing price - not only the nicest place in Siem Reap but the nicest I've stayed in Southeast Asia! :)

Phenomenal hotel. Gracious staff, good breakfast, beautiful colonial decor. A little worn out, but that adds to the charm. If I am in Siem Reap again, I will be staying here. I felt like I was a king on a pauper's budget.

he other reviews do a great job describing this place and we were super happy with our stay here (4 days, 3 nights). What the other reviews won't tell you though is that this hotel has, quite possible, the best Tuk Tuk driver in the city working for them.

One of the Pearl's Tuk Tuk drivers greeted us at the airport (Mr. Thien - I would recommend requesting him!) to bring us to the hotel. We loved him so much we had him give us tours during our entire stay. He took us to the floating village (and on the way back, showed us some really cool temples that are off the beaten path). He was able to be a great knowledgeable guide for us for our tour of the Temples of Ankor, with little tips of the best places to go see within the temples. We also felt his prices were very reasonable, he was always providing us with ice cold bottled water.
