Angkor Century Resort & Spa
Ranked #162 of 361 Hotels in Siem Reap
Reviewed November 7, 2010

We got a friendly pick up at the rather backward Siem Reap airport by our hotel for only 10$. At first impression, Siem Reap seemed a bit of a downer, with dust-choked roads littered with garbage. Our hotel, the older but clean and upscale, Angkor Century, however, turned out to be a pleasant place to stay. Our third floor room gave us a view of the inner courtyard, the gardens and the huge pool. The Angkor Century staff and indeed, all the Cambodians in general, were very friendly, perhaps even more so than any other people we’ve met. The hotel gardens include a pool brimming with tropical fish, mostly some kind of carp. For birders and nature enthusiasts, there are also a few birds and lizards around, but not too many and none which are easy to spot and see (except the usual Mayna bird).

We stay at the Angkor Century and in Cambodia for 5 nights, 2010 March 22 until our departure on March 27th. The famous ruined temple city is easy to see via tuk-tuk or Lexus and driver booked through, or outside the hotel for a reasonable fee. The tuk tuk was 8-11$ for a half day trip, the car about 30-40$. Both the car and the tuk tuk driver provided great service but the tuk tuk driver, Mr. Coll, was really outstanding.
Angkor Wat and the surrounding sites of Bayon temple, the root entwined ruins of Ta Prohm, and many others, are surrounded in pristine jungle. The whole area is immaculately kept and free of garbage. Even the toilets are of high western standards. The restaurants, with their wood stoves in the back, have great food, including banana pancakes and the best fruit shakes I’ve had. The souvenir peddlers, mostly kids, are a bit annoying but at the same time one can’t help but be charmed by their smiling faces, good humor. Their apparent high knowledge of visitor’s home cities, math and languages would put many, school attending, western children to shame.

Siem Reap too, grows on you. Often one really gets the impression of being in a new world, one only recently re-introduced to the west. At night, trays of fresh seasoned, huge black beetles are sold on the local streets as snacks. Not so in the touristy Alley and Bar Street of the Old Market Area, where are many excellent restaurants with really great food. About 10 $ buys dinner for two, with four beer and 2 shakes! I had the best salad rolls ever, prepared with paper thin dough. It’s not a tipping country, so when we tip as usual the people are very grateful. Even the poor landmine victims, who at times come from table to table, selling souvenirs, manage to retain a smile on their face.
The only real downer on the trip was the overpriced side trip to the floating village (or should I say floating scam!) with its con artist boat guides that take you through garbage invested waters. Avoid the floating scam and spent an extra day at Angkor Wat or at Angkor Century! Angkor Wat remains one of the high points of many years of travel. Ramble On…

Angkor Century Hotel was a pleasant surprise. The staff was friendly, helpful and more than willing to speak English. There is a great buffet breakfast in morning time. The room was cozy and clean supplied with wooden and even a towel warmer. As far as location you could take tuktuk. to see around Siem reap and Angkor Wat temple. You will lose with this enjoy if come to Siem reap will not stay at Angkor century Hotel.

This is a large hotel and the rooms are very nice and comfortable. Beds are hard in Asia, but after 3 weeks of such beds, my back felt better than it has in 2 years !
The breakfast buffet is extensive and the pool is large and relaxing. At night, there was an Apsara show in the courtyard. We were there during the New Year celebration, so don't know if the show is there year round, but it was definitely a great experience...

I stayed at the Angkor Century, for 2 nights, as a birthday present to myself.

The room was small, but comfortable and clean.

The hotel is not too close to the center of town, but you can get there for only $1US in a local tuk tuk (which were waiting outside the hotel).

The restaurant was OK. There was a show on during dinner, with traditional dancing, which more than made up for the bland tasteless food.

The service was great. The staff were happy to assist us with any of our queries.

Our group stayed here for 3 nites. The staff were so friendly and helpful in every way. The rooms were spacious. The pool beautiful. The spa amazing after a day of trekking Angkor wat. So close to everything. Can walk or take cheap tuk tuks to everything around. Don't forget to visit Pub street across from the nite market. Beer for .50 a glass and cocktails for 2 for $3. Food menu also very reasonable. The best place we stayed on our asian tour and we stayed at some top rated places.
