We stayed at the Angkor Victoria Resort & Spa for visiting the Angkor Wat Temples. The hotel has this amazing old world charm as soon as you approach. It is far different from the new age hotels of today.
Vintage cars in the driveway, an open air reception area, an old lift with doors that you have to pull to close - that close like a scissors, wooden staircases on both sides, open corridors, typical Cambodian live music - it is all so quaint that you are immediately taken back a 100 years.
The location of the hotel is perfect for Pub Street and to walk about Siam Reap. You cannot beat the location.
The rooms are luxurious - what you would expect from any other 5 star. Though I do wish they would renovate the bathrooms to modern standards. Not that they are not new, but have started showing age.
The food is great. They have live entertainment at night with traditional dances and music. A great way to promote the heritage of your country.
The salt water swimming pool is beautiful with flora surrounding it. It is very thoughtfully designed.
All in all, a gem in a beautiful city.
