5 star luxury with a 3 star price tag. Great service, friendly, helpful stafff who spoke very good english and were a pleasure to deal with. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable, the pool was so good and the food amazing. Definately going back to this place. We would recommend this hotel highly.

Room Tip: We paid something like $80 a night and in Australia would have paid $400-$500 a night for a hotel of...

overall the hotel and services meet my expectations. here are the pros and cons of my stay:
pros:
-entrance hall: very nicely decorated
-upon checking we had warm towels, fresh juice and khmer sticky cake. it made quite an impression on us.
-checking was quick and checkout as well.
-service was good. front desk spoke good english and helped us to arrange for a car to visit siem riep.
the driver was a really nice guy and such a skillfull driver.
- the room: i booked a triple room and i was surprised to see how big our room was. bed very comfortable and huge bathroom

cons:
--restaurant: breakfast is great; but food at restaurant is pricy and average. don't order asian food, coz it's not good there. western food is decent though.
-location: a bit far of from central siem riep. not much to do around. have to ride tuk tuk to go to central siem riep .
-pool: quite small . i went there in early november, so the hotel was not crowded yet.
-corridors are huge, endless and quite glum. gives a feeling that stuck in a you're in a giant cruise boat./ titanic style...

overall i would stay there again cos the hotel is a bargain and still close enough to siem riep.

Booked this hotel 6 months in advance. Emails with a staff confirmed a room at 4th floor pool side. Instead we gor a room opposite where directly in front of the construction. Water dribbles from the tub to the floor. Not all the lights work.
In November, rec'd an email that a $125 per person New Year gala celebration is compulsary. I searched for alternative accomodation but almost all the decent accommodation in SR are taken or the price have sky rocketed. Their email a week before our stay said that if I did not confirm the $125 per person charge, that they will cancel our accommodation. They are really jamming this gala on our throat. The food, served buffet style at the gala was mediocre. The stage was blocked by the landscaping from where we were seated. Some guests started dancing after dinner, by this time about 2/3 of the guests have left.
The breakfast buffet sucks! The croissants and other breads tasted old. They use so much oil on the eggs. Coffee cups are so small we had to keep looking for a waiter to fill them up. The staff tries very had to please but the guys wearing western suits just talks amongst them and hardly do anything. I like SR and plan to come back but I will stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: I will not trust any promise from Borei Angkor. They will ignore it! Stay at another hotel.

Dear Shadow9745,

Greetings from Siem Reap, and I am glad to read that you have enjoyed your visit to Siem Reap.
I have noticed that you have rated Siem Reap a very high score, except the Phnom Kuelen National Park.

Personally, I do appreciate very much for taking your time to share with us and other readers about your experience at our resort.

I am very sorry to have learnt that you did not enjoy your stay with us at all. On behalf of the entire team, I do apologize for not being able to take good care of you. I am not trying to explain what went wrong; and we might have made some mistakes as we moved along.

For your kind information, Siem Reap is very small town; and most hotels do the compulsory dinner during the festive season. One of the main reasons is because this area is still a seasonal business. On top of that, through the our experience, most restaurants were closed in the town; and so we wish to put up a good party where our residents could celebrate the festive season in style. I am sorry that the price of the dinner has become an issue. The price is inclusive of free flow of selective drinks for the entire evening. We have also arranged lots of activities such as silk painting, leather carving, local basket crafting, lotus flower folding, and Khmer culture fashion show. That is the early part of the evening. During the dinner, we have imported the international band plus the Cambodian traditional performances just to highlight the evening. On top of that, the entire resort have been decorated in festive season theme to ensure that our residents feeling like home while you are away from home.

Most of all, I am sorry that you did not enjoy our good selection of dinner buffet. In contrast, we did get a lot of positive feedbacks and guests thanked the resort in the effort trying to put up a great party for them.

My observation was, as the general manager, a bit different from yours for the fact that most our residents did enjoy the meal, the show, and the party. If I may point out, we did the count down in style with most of guests stayed back to enjoy the special evening.

I may disagree with you that the breakfast was not good, because we have a very dedicated team behind the scene led by a professional Cambodian chef who had been working for a number of years with International environment. However, I am very sorry, once again, that our buffest breakfast food tastes did not meet your expectation.

I have been a waiter myself for some years and always thought that our coffee cups are the standardised size which is commonly used by the local and international hotel chains; and I am very sorry that you have found our coffee up very small.

Thank you for your kind comment about our hardworking staff. We believe in teamwork. We believe in “Muddita Spirit” principle which our happiness derive from our guests’ happiness.

If you need any assistance for the future trip to Siem Reap, please do not hesitate to contact us even though may not be staying with us.

at your service,
Nara Thon
General Manager

I stayed here for 2 nights in December, along with a friend. Firstly, when we booked, the hotel didn't state that Tere was renovation going on. Since travelers are mostly looking to relax during their vacation, this hotel didn't make it possible for us to sleep in late. I am willing to overlook this fact.

But what was appalling is that the group of tuk tuk drivers that ferries customers around are simply laborious to be speaking to. And it doesn't help that the hotel takes a non-chalant attitude.

I found most of hotel staff unable to communicate in English very well. And when I needed to get out of the hotel, besides the VERY long walk out, I had to deal with incompetent hotel staff who were unable to tell the hotel's tuk-tuk drivers where I needed to go. Not only that, after all the hassle, I was told that the driers DO NOT carry any form of change, neither USD nor local Cambodian currency. This was extremely debilitating because I couldn't see reason why a driver would not have change. And the hotel staff at the entrance therefore expected me to walk the VERY long walk back to reception to change money again.

Truth be told, I had such an awesome time enjoying the room the pool, the restauarant excellent but my overall experience was 100% spoilt by the Borei's team of tuk-tuk drivers who were wearing the Borei shirt & driving a Borei branded tuk-tuk. For as long as they fail to organize a better system to help customers out, this would be the final thing that would remain etched in guests' minds... That their own transportation system model was simply appalling.

I subsequently moves hotel to one that was nearer to the markets. So where the rooms were no where compared to Borei, they had an excellent front desk which took charge of helping guests to get to where they want, and tuk-tuk drivers who had currency change! That hotel was gave me so much more better experience.

Stay here if u don't intend to venture out. Save yourself the agony of having to deal with their tuk-tuk drivers.

Don't stay here because any other hotels in Siem reap would offer much better service and you get to enjoy more.

Dear Juviance,

Greeting from Siem Reap, Cambodia!

Thank you very much for your comments in detail; and I am glade that your staying and visiting to Siem Reap and the kingdom was a good one.

I am sorry that you have not been well informed about our renovation activities; and that did not make it possible for you to sleep in late. I am trying to put myself in that condition, and certainly I may feel the same way. We are almost done with our lobby upgrading, and only minor works are being carried out at this time of the year, December 2012.

On the other hand, English is our second language and it is very popular recently. Yet, some of our staff could not command it properly. I am sorry that they were not able to effectively assist you with direction giving when dealing with the Remork driver (Remork is the local word, Tuk-Tuk - Thai).

Most of our residents enjoy this type of service, but if ones try to get to the public Remork, which is not under our control, sometimes the experience could be unpleasant. In this case, I will work to improve that service.

Once again, thank you very much for sharing your comments with our readers. We will look at more possible English classes, local products knowledge and places of interest, and the transportation arrangement. Thank you for your constructive feedbacks, and we will do everything we could to take care of that.

Very best,
Nara Thon

I liked the location of Borei hotel near old market but far enough to avoid the tourist crowd. Hotel staff were all accommodating and courteous. Great breakfast buffet and room accommodations. Great value for money!! Will stay here again next time.

Let's face it, the streets of Cambodia isn't always pleasant to the eye but when you're inside Borei Angkor you totally forget where you're at! The resort is clean and polished everyday. You wake up greeted with contagious smiles and sweet 'good mornings'.. I never got that at any other 5 stars I've stayed at before. My husband and I was so touched by the staff at this resort that we nearly emptied our wallets through tips after tips. The front desk staff spoke English very well, unlike the staffs i had encountered in Bangkok and Phuket. The entire staff from front desk to cleaners wore traditional Cambodian uniforms and were well groomed. Management wore suits. I was especially impressed with their complimentary Tuk Tuk service. Our driver gave us the royal treatment and provided us recommendations for food and shopping. At night, the hotel has a live band who performs by the pool. There's a bar next to the pool as well. The breakfast buffet is exceptional and so is the dinner menu. The rooms all had wooden decor. the AC for ea room activates by the key card. in order words it shuts off when you leave and turns on when you come back into the room. The bathroom had peek a boo windows and there are balconies in each room so you can have access to fresh (humid) air. The hotel is not very far from the famous Pub Street and a short distance from the Angkor park. I would definitely return!

The BOREI Angkor resort is an affordable experience if you plan a week stay as I did to enjoy the legendary people s courtesy in Cambodia ; spacious and all modern comfort rooms you might need to feel home among very nice efficient staff ready to respond to any enquiry you might ask during your stay even the beautifut traditional Khmer style lobby is partly closed for works to make it bigger in a wide open green zen modern style which will transform it completely. Breakfast room opens early at 6.00 am with noisy and rude Chinese groups unfortunatly for us but all kind of international food is available except for th very expensive foreign wine which invites you to discover the various restaurants choice of Siem Reap. Anyway, the place remains a wonderful experience to recomand to best friends.
