We stayed at Château d'Angkor La Résidence for 4 nights in mid December. The hotel provided a free airport pick up, and let us check in early to the room that we desired upon request. Staff were all very friendly.
Our room was a two bedroom suite on the 1st floor, very spacious and clean with a balcony overlooking the swimming pool. The décor and furniture were all in the traditional Khmer style. Bedding was comfortable. WiFi speed was good. The washing machine was a real bonus.
The hotel’s restaurant had a nice setting and offered a good selection of breakfast and chef cooking of eggs, noodles and congee.
We had a great tuk tuk driver Buntang who spoke good English and became our exclusive driver and guide for the 4 days we were in Siem Reap. We were very happy with him and his service.
The hotel had a very beautiful pool which was great for a dip after a day of sightseeing in the heat. However we found the water in the pool too strongly chlorinated that after the swim our boy who swam without goggles developed foggy vision and our girls found it a bit painful to urinate. We also did not expect mosquitos inside the air conditioned bedrooms so got bitten during sleep.
One thing we found odd is that a hotel staff member (we assumed) knocked on our door at 7:30pm attempting to clean our room, and another time the same person just opened our door with his key without knocking. Perhaps the hotel offers room cleaning service twice a day assuming guests were out at that time, but after reading another fellow traveller’s story about money being stolen from the room safe, this now seems a bit suspicious.
All in all we had a comfortable & enjoyable stay and would most likely come back again.
