“A little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Great location on the other side of the lake, so quiet at night, but 5 minute walk to Pub St.
Spacious clean well appointed room, ours had a balcony (think most do) with ample room to sit and relax. Rooftop pool was a bonus to relax with a drink and take in the views across the city. Good breakfast selection in dining room which is huge, more like a club bar. As good as the hotel was it was the staff, from the reception staff to the doorman to the cleaning staff, who made us feel like friends on a visit. They always had a smile. And they made it fun as they tried to teach us a new word or two in Kmer.
Definitely recommend you stay here. Close enough to everything in town, but quiet relaxing location.

Room Tip: Think you would be pretty happy in any room. There really is not much noise around the adjoining pro...

My husband and I stayed at the hotel in Jan 2011 while we were honeymooning. The location is excellent with a long stretch of a lake excellent for walks....the Midnight market is also at walking distance and a must for shoppers.
Our room was excellent and so was the food. We were extremely pleased by the breakfast buffet which was quite elaborate. The rooftop pool was divine..especially early mornings and before sunet.

The travel to the ankor watt is a comfortable 20 min tuk-tuk ride which can be arranged easily...The hotel also arranges cabs for those seeking more comfort.

This is a little gem. I was pleasantly surprised at all the little things that made this hotel a great experience. Rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the roof top pool was a bonus, what more can I say when it comes at a bargain price.

I highly recommend this hotel. It was far better than the hotels we stayed at in Thailand as part of the same trip. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were pleasant and clean. The pool on the top roof provided an enjoyable respite from the heat (and had long hours). Breakfasts were great and the lunch we had at the restaurant was also very good. I'd highly recommend City River.

Stayed here on a flying visit from Vietnam - the hotel isn't fancy (in some areas it can look a bit tired) but the staff are friendly, the rooms are spacious, well appointed and clean. The rooftop pool is a great bonus after a long day temple gazing at Angkor Wat....

The hotel did a good job of arranging our airport pick-up and a driver for Angkor via e-mail so no complaints there. The location is good, about 5 mins walk into the centre of Siem Reap.

Breakfast isn't bad, nothing to write home about, but perfectly OK.

All in all a good price and a good place to stay in Siem Reap for a couple of days.

I stayed here in November and simply loved it. The rooms were gorgeous, clean and quiet. The pool was so nice to come back to after hours of exploring in the heat. The staff were so kind that i was quite sad to leave. I booked the highly recommended "peach- the tuk tuk driver" who is based outside this hotel, who was honest and fair with the daily rate (Sunrise +sunset extra) and helpful to figure out when /where to go to avoid the mass tour buses. The old town/restaurants/ markets are an easy walk from the hotel. This is a great spot at a great price.

We were booked into this hotel as part of a tour and we were very pleased. It's not a fancy 5-star hotel and if that is what you are looking for, go elsewhere but for a good price, very nice and pleasant, rooms are very clean, staff very nice, you will enjoy this hotel. It is in a very good location along the river and we had a small balcony as well. The decor was very pleasant and the staff was very nice and accommodating. The breakfast spread was varied and the food was good. We had lunch in the restaurant one day as well and it was very good. The pool on the rooftop was lovely, especially at sunset. We would strongly recommend this hotel to other travelers.
