pressionsTan Kang Angkor Hotel
As a married couple for some strange reason we found it difficult to find a room with a double be in Siem Reap, after spending a couple of hours tramping around looking for comfortable and most importantly clean hotel our Tuk-tuk driver dropped us here.
First impressions of this hotel were good; the public areas were of an impressive colonial style built with quality materials. Funny then that when we viewed the room it was completely plain and no reflection of the outer style. The room looked clean (2 single beds) so being tired we checked in.
On closer inspection of the room are first impressions were not so correct-the bathroom area clearly had not been properly cleaned in a long time and the shower attachment did not work. My wife became quite upset when she opened the fridge and found it to be filthy dirty and even containing an item of rotting food.
The beds were fitted with high quality very comfortable mattresses, a nice swimming pool and small bar area, but the fridge incident meant my wife was never really comfortable here.
Breakfast buffet contained no more than 5 items and was just horrible.
We checked out after one night.
It’s difficult to advise the best way of booking hotels in Siem Ream if you pre-book and find your hotel is of poor quality you’re stuck with it-to find one on arrival takes lots of trekking despite the Tuk-tuk driver’s advice.
We did find a nice hotel (see my other reviews) but spent the best part of 24 hours searching before we felt comfortable in this city. But the Angkor Wat site was amazing and not to be missed so worth the effort.
