LOCATION - Located on the road to Angkor Wat, Tara Angkor is about a kilometre away from Pub Street. If the weather is pleasant, it's a nice walk. If not, it's a $2 tuktuk ride one-way. It's around 6km away from the airport, not a problem since they have complimentary airport transfers included in their packages. The hotel itself is located in the quiet part of Siem Reap. There are a few establishments around but mostly cater to package tour groups, who come by bus. We arrived almost midnight and the surrounding establishments are all closed and there's no nearby food stall to grab a quick bite after a long flight. The hotel restaurants were also closed at that time so we had no choice but to bite the bullet and grab a few snacks from the mini-bar. There's a supermarket of limited stocks and a water vendor a few meters down the street, heading to the Pub Street area. If you want peace and quiet or want to return quickly to your room (and dip in the pool) after a dusty and sweaty Angkor tour, this hotel is perfect. If you're the type who wants to paint Siem Reap red, you're better off with hotels located near Pub Street or the Riverfront.
ROOMS - Rooms are large and generous. Beds are on the firm side but nonetheless very comfortable. There are complimentary fruits (bananas and longans) and water, replenished everyday. Bathrooms are large with bidets, with a few minor housekeeping issues (mostly stains on the tub, bowl and sink).
DINING - The Tong Tara international breakfast buffet is commendable, with the congee and noodle stations standing out as our favourites. The croissants however isn't as flaky and light as one would hope. We had a complimentary dinner for 2 included in our package and the Asian Set Menu at the Frangipani Restaurant were delicious and generous.
SERVICE - Staff were very friendly, efficient and always had a smile. All speak good English and can easily accommodate your requests.
OTHERS - We also had a complimentary 30 min. foot massage and availed it at the spa. You can take it after doing your temple tours. We didn't try the pool since the weather was a bit cool but from the looks of it, it's a godsend if you're coming in on hotter months.
