“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

If you get the chance to go you must! Great rooms, stunning pool and amazing food! Staff very attentive! Drinks relatively cheap. Worth every penny! The food is more expensive than some of the local restaurants but it is a real culinary experience!

A beautiful and charming hotel where as soon as you step in, you feel in an other world. Though we didn't stay there, on our first night in Siem Reap we went to have dinner at la Residence and it was a fabulous experience. Service was impeccable, food delicious and the ambiance perfect. I will strongly recommend it to anyone going to Siem Reap. We were also very privileged to be shown the hotel rooms and the spa by Jacques, the Resident Manager, a nice detail.

La Residence is perfectly located on the river close to the old market. It's a 5 minute tuk tuk ride into the centre of town, and the tuk tuk is always available. The hotel is peaceful and well appointed, the rooms spacious and the bed comfortable. The food is good and service outstanding. Breakfast - must try eggs florentine... but give the cappuccino a skip.

Room Tip: The further from the road the quieter.

It is tough to say anything that has not already been mentioned in previous reviews. La Residence is nothing short of fabulous.

The impeccable service begins the moment you step out of your transportation upon arrival and continues until you bid your farewell at departure. Their entire staff is warm and friendly and attentive without being over the top and uncomfortable.

The property is beautiful, peaceful and wonderfully maintained. The rooms are large, luxurious and private. The spa was an experience I wish I could have every day. The restaurants are excellent in every way with great food, generous portions at surprisingly non-five star resort prices. There is also wonderful food in town, but especially in the wet season, we had a difficult time justifying leaving the property in search of great cuisine when La Residence was able to offer us great food on site - so we often didn't.

As so many other reviews have mentioned, you will not find a better experience in a better location. Our holiday coincided with heavy rain and flooding, but being only a few blocks from the heart of town offered us easy access to the action and quick retreats back to our dry paradise at La Residence when the downpours began!

We have many wonderful memories of our stay in Siem Reap. La Residence is as much a part of that as the amazing temples of Angkor Wat. We are so glad to have had the experience!

Room Tip: My husband and I traveled with our 13 year old son. La Residence provided us a large room with a que...

A charming hotel in true Asian Style. Open walkways and lush tropical gardens. If you are looking for a soulless hotel with air conditioned corridors, then this is not for you. If you love Luxury Asia, enjoying the warmth as you step out of your gorgeous room (which are stunning - heaps nicer than they look on the website) then try this hotel. Personalised service, where the Manager makes an effort to introduce himself to and chat with EVERY guest, brilliant staff throughout the hotel, a beautiful setting and a great location. What more could you ask for? Oh and if you mention a special occasion it is likely to be noted. On my husbands birthday, three staff members arrived at our room minutes after we returned from a dinner out; they had a lovely birthday cake, complete with candles and sang Happy Birthday to him. A beautiful place where the staff work hard to ensure a superb stay for their guests.
Also worth mentioning the in house restaurant. I mentioned gluten intolerance and they went out of their way to adapt whatever I wanted from the menu and produced a lovely gluten free bread for me at each meal. Top place to stay in Siem Reap.

Right by the river. Added to the charm as opposed to being on a busy dusty street.

Entrance nondescript, but once inside, beautiful. Staff n environment. Mon greeted us n settled us in. Wonderful service. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent too, albeit the usual steep hotel prices. Pool is lovely like in a heavily wooded alcove. Beautiful ficus. Memorable first time to siem reap.

Pro's:
* location is superb, a short stroll to the old market and the restaurants & bars
* stayed in a suite room - the size and fit out is impressive & very detailed
* the best Egg Florentine i have ever probably had - great chef
* super polite service - and the added value: they really put their heart into it - love this team

Con's:
* could not think of any what the hotel concerns
* the rain could be a handicap but it also keeps the temples un-crowded

Room Tip: it does not appear any room has lesser quality
