Shadow Angkor Villa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We stayed here for our first trip to Siem Reap on the recommendation of Lonely Planet, which can always be a bit hit and miss. From being picked up at the airport by a driver and his tuk-tuk, to arranging our driver for a two day visit to the temples, nothing was too much trouble for the staff here.
The room was lovely and clean and nice and quiet (which is needed for the 5am starts!).
The location of the hotel was excellent and nothing was more than a few minutes walk away.
The hotel pool is small but very welcome when returning from a long day in the sun.

No fuss straightforward good option. Location ok, restaurants and bars close by, town centre easy 5 min walk. Far enough away from town to be quiet at night- my wife says best lication in town! Nice breakfasts, coffee is good. They arrange all tours etc for you and sort out tuc-tucs and prices etc at reasonable rates- no fuss here as well. Also, free wi-Fi that works well, friendly and trustworthy staff. Refreshing pool. 30 mins gentle tuc to temples. Laundry service good. Rooms cleaned daily, fresh towels/ water.

We stayed here over New Year 2012, on the recommendation of friends who stayed in 2011. It was the start of a 6 week holiday in Indochina. We were really happy with the guesthouse - helpful and friendly staff, nice little pool and garden area, great location, walk everywhere, great tuk tuk driver for 3 days of temples (ask for Sophal), clean room and reasonably comfortable beds, lovely breakfasts made to order, good value for money. Only issue we had was cold shower. We thought this must be normal so we never asked them to fix it but reading other reviews it seems most people did have a hot shower. Would recommend.

Travelled to this place from PP. Rooms are beautiful, new and clean. Location is good too, only a bridge cross away to Pub street. Stay here if you want some peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of Old market and Pub street. They even have a swimming pool where you can unwind yourself after a hot day of walking in the sites.

I have to consider the accounts of the tuk-tuk drivers and the tour guide we hired into this review as i got it under the hotel. (They get a big fat comission out of it.)

The tuk-tuk driver we hired was reckless and impatient. And on the 2nd day, he charged 5 USD more as we requested for a small detour. He agreed on the detour but he never told us that it will cost us more money until it was time to pay.

The English tour guide we got on the first day was excellent and enthusiastic. But when we they first agreed to get us the guide (with sunrise at Angkor Wat), it was 25 USD. They however called us back at night to say, we need to pay 5 USD more for sunrise.

On the 2nd day, a different tour guide was given as the first guide was booked. This 2nd tour guide was lazy and wanted to rush us through everything, so that he can get back home early. When we asked him to be more detail on the explanations of the historical sites at Bantheay Srei and Rolous Group, he told us the stories there are the same as Angkor Wat. Then why do we need to hire you in the first place? He slept on our journey back from Tonle Sap Lake to the dock.

Another matter that i find disgusted, is at the time of billing (during the checkout). They tried to charge us 10 USD per night above our agreed upon price on email. When i asked them about it, they asked me to show them evidence thinking that i have no print of the email. So i flashed out my Ipad and showed them our agreed email conversation. They reluctantly change the bill back to the agreed upon price after much hassle.

I still recommend travelers to stay here for the good rooms and location. Just hire your own tuk-tuks and tour guides if you know where to get one. Ask them to write down in black and white the prices you agreed upon. And do print copies of your email of the room rates you were given or be prepared to pay more.

Room Tip: No elevators. But the reception will help you carry your luggage to your rooms. Use the swimming poo...

I have stayed at the Shadow of Angkor 2 hotel on different occasions. My college chooses to go to this location every year for a biology class study tour. The staff is very friendly and super helpful. The hotel itself is beautiful and the pool area was very nice as well. The beds were comfortable and the central air was nice to come back to after a day out and about. The hotel is in walking distance of many great restaurants (like Butterflies Restaurant), lots of great stores, Pub Street, the Old Market, and the Night Market. I highly recommend this hotel! You will truly enjoy your experience here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean and delightful hotel. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the beds were clean and comfortable and the general feel of the place was that we were really staying in a special place. The old-style building is beautiful also. Although we weren't in the "centre" of town, it is still close enough to walk around and, if not, the hotel had transport organised to Angkor Wat. The pool is also a treat after a long day walking around Angkor Wat. There were computers available to use for internet and the bathroom was such a treat after days of cold showers. Overall a highlight of our trip through Cambodia, for a very good price!

We were very happy to stay here earlier this month. Samnang is very helpful on the front desk and can arrange transport to temples. Hotel itself was spotless and rooms were large. Free Wifi, computers available if required, swimming pool is great little bonus too. Location is excellent as it is far enough away from hectic Pub Street, but only 5 minute walk. No complaints about this place, would definitely recommend!
