“Great French Colonial hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Spent the weekend here. Very charming property with well appointed rooms. The service here is extremely good and the staff are so polite, it's embarrassing. The buffet breakfast is very modest for a 5 star hotel in terms of its selection and choice. Given the French influence I was hoping for a better selection of breads, cheese and pastries as a similarly rated property on the other side of the border ie Vietnam.
The pool is incredibly impressive both in terms of its size and the ambience. The hotel is about 2 km from the main "town". You may be better off asking for a room that overlooks the pool instead of the gardens. I find the prices at the spa very expensive especially when you can get quality treatment at the nearby Lemon grass spa.

Very efficiently run place with great, attentive, professional and friendly staff.
Once the renovation is done in two weeks in the main building it will be again a classy and charming place full of history and Cambodian hospitality!
Would recommend them to put some rugs in the hallways since without it the hallways tend to be very noisy and look a bit hospital bare like.

Room Tip: For the time being the annex building is without construction noise. If you have the money, book the...

Having worked in the travel industry for close to 25 years...I'm rather fussy. Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor exceeded all of my expectations! The staff were lovely and very accommodating. Our room overlooking the pool was well appointed and comfortable including a welcome letter from the General Manager! The buffet breakfast was one of the best I've experienced. The amazing temples are a short distance away and are easily accessed. Since we only had a day in Siem Reap prior to starting a cruise we decided to return early to spend the afternoon at the spectacular pool. Two nights was not enough!

My second stay this past July. While I like the older building, staying with my sister this trip, we were given a villa, which was a lovely setting and I will try and comeback just to relax. The service was stepped up since my last trip at the pool. The poolman was a trainee but seemed to be a veteran as far as service and attentiveness. Having seen an Apsara dance before I wouldn't have gone except for my sister wanting to and I am glad I did. The food variety was excellent and dancing excellent. Just long enough to enjoy. Had a family with two boys in front sat throughout the dance and every member not gotten up and down to get. Food, it would have been nicer, but not hotel fault of course. The rooms were spotless and any problem was dealt with quickly. The bar a welcome evening respite after trekking during the day, the bar staff friendly and welcoming. The restaurant was nice as well, with Cambodian fare and excellent seafood. Actually the entire staff, restaurant manager to chefs, just great for all food venues.. A 100! Our butler nice and accommodating as well. Not enough time for more than one spa treatment but it was good too I'd stay there again and again.

The first thing that strikes you as you come into Siem Reap from the airport is the number of new and very fancy hotels (at least from the outside). The area is expanding rapidly due to tourism. Raffles Hotel may not strike you as new and fancy as you pull up but you immediately get a sense of old time elegance. Once you walk through the door, you feel like you're home. The staff is amazing and, as indicated in many other reviews, actually DO know your name by the second day!

Teak wood is everywhere, with a gorgeous enclosed verandah overlooking a simply stunning pool area where you can sit with a drink, just enjoying the ambiance.

My room was just lovely, looking out to a garden (the hotel is surrounded by gardens) and a small balcony. I loved the old ceiling fans but very modern and plush rooms (LOVE the wood floors).

You'll really enjoy the FREE wifi throughout the hotel and a lovely breakfast in a very beautiful dining room. Take a look at the serving jugs, and such. Beautiful filigree silver and glass. Just another little touch that makes you feel as though Somerset Maugham might walk through the door any minute!

No detail is missed. I was sad to leave!

We stayed 6 nights and were sad to leave. We found the staff delightful, service excellent, breakfasts the best we've ever had and the pool gorgeous. Little touches like a chap cleaning our sunglasses by the pool and cold towels on entry to the hotel or the large screen iMacs available to all for photo editing, emails, etc, summed up the attention to detail and attitude of the management. Simply superb and we didn't want to leave.

Spectacular attention to detail, even to the jackets for our water bottles. Nothing was ever any trouble. Exceptional facilities, epitome of everything you associate with the name Raffles. We felt like we were guests in someone's home. The old was amazing, the pool and pool bar beyond all expectations, even the shops in this hotel were unique and prices reasonable. The lemongrass essential oils burning in the corridor kept the entire hotel fresh smelling and relaxing
