“Just as good as the first time”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This was our second visit to this hotel – the last being in 2010. It was no surprise to read on a banner that the Sokha Angkor had been voted the best hotel in Cambodia for 2011.
It was very nice to be recognised by the person I’d been dealing with over the internet – she had handled our stay in 2010, and was on duty the afternoon of our arrival this year.

We were a party of six (three couples) and as we checked–in we were told that we had been upgraded to club rooms, which were large and spacious with a small balcony over looking the pool.

Th accommodation had plenty of storage space in the bedroom and the bathroom, which had rain shower head, plus a linked mobile shower, which gave you the choice of rain shower, as against strong jets. A large circular bath tub – enough for three people if you are that close a friend. We didn’t try it, so I can not comment on the efficiency of filling the tub. The bathroom was much larger than a standard bathroom. Plenty of amenities, large soft bath towels etc. In the bedroom we had a flat screen TV and DVD / audio system. Large choice of TV stations.
The DVD system allowed me to check the quality of various DVDs & Cds that I bought in Siem Reap – they all worked.

Breakfast was the standard buffet style with the eggs station, which also included an Asian vegetable station where the vegetables were flash cooked to order. The staff were efficient and friendly throughout the hotel. They have an Irish Pub in the basement area, which has live music after 8.00 pm. I never saw the pub packed, as it would have been difficult for any hotel bar to compete with the bars / restaurants of Pub Street. At $0.50 per 330 ml glass of beer hotel bars would be hard pressed to match this, never mind sell at a lower price.

The hotel dining room was closed in the evening. Small tourist groups had their meals around the large pool with a floor show in the background. We returned one evening, after eating at Pub Street, and were able to watch the floor show from our balconies.

During 2010 we used a particular guide to show us around Angkor Wat, so of course we used him again for this years sight seeing, plus we hired, through the guide, our own bus & driver to drive us from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh. It took us about 5 hours and for logistical reasons the bus was a 30 seater, for the six of us, so we had plenty of room.

If we return to Siem Reap, the Sokha Angkor is the place we would choose to stay, even without an upgrade.
Thanks to the General Manager, Emmett McHenry, who has created the atmosphere and the tone of the hotel, and it feels so ‘right’ and the staff appear happy at their work.

Stayed at the hotel for 5 nights in March 2012. Location is very central yet not too noisy.The room even have a pillow menu that you can choose from.

Had a pleaant surprise when the hotel send a cake to the room on my wife's birthday.

The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. Special mentioned to the Senior Captain/Waitress Ms Vong Savoy at the Lotus Restaurant during breakfast. Every morning, she will cheerfully greet all the guest with a wide smile and and leads them to their table. Her chirpiness really brightens the whole restaurant every morning.

We will surely stay at the hotel again and strongly recommend friends to stay there too.

Our son and his girlfriend live in Siem Reap and recommended this hotel to us, and after staying there I can see why, it just has everything. Location is close enough to the centre, but away from the hustle bustle. Very spacious rooms, three good restaurants, large outdoor pool. But what put this hotel above any other we have stayed at is the friendliness of the staff, a huge smile on the face of everyone and they make you feel special. Duty manager Kadem Buth was particularly helpful. I can't recommend this place enough.

Room Tip: A deluxe pool room is more than adequate, but if you want to spoil yourself go the the club suite, w...

Stayed in the Club Suite with a balcony overlooking the pool!!! The bed was wider than it was long! Also the bath was enormous, perfect for a relaxing evening with some wine. The salt water pool has an Angkorian temple backdrop. The staff was extremely helpful and I would recommend asking for Kadem Buth if you need any help. The breakfast buffet is huge and has any style western or Asian food that you could want. Highly recommended!!!!

Really glad that we booked this hotel for our stay in Siem Reap!
Really great hotel with good location.
We had the club suite and it comes with the biggest bath tub I ever seen!
My 2 kids and I were fooling around in the bathtub together :-)

The breakfast in the morning were really good too! They tried to hv a variety... And I enjoyed my porridge each morning with the condiments. Kids before age of 6 is free....and kids above paid USD 8

The room itself came with DVD player. So we bought some DVDs and enjoyed our own movie nights !

Great hotel...will stay again!!

I give this hotel 5 *****!

This is a fantastic hotel and a great base for visiting Angkor Wat. It is impressive when you arrive, the salt water swimming pool has a backdrop that is made to look like a temple with waterfalls, the service is great, and the location is convenient for everywhere. We looked around at other hotels and realised we were in the best. The room overlooked the pool. The rooms have amazing bath tubs, which are great for soaking a weary body after climbing many temple steps. For me the best luxury hotels are relaxed and don't have to try too hard, this is what is on offer here. In fact this is a place to come even if not visiting temples!

The Sokha Angkor Resort is one of the best hotels I've had the pleasure of staying at. The staff were helpful; the room was spacious and clean; and the wide salt-water pool was fantastic. The linga shape of the pool was a nice touch!

The location was also very good. It was a quick $1-2 tuk tuk ride to the eateries on Pub Street. It was also possible to walk around Siem Reap to shops and restaurants. Getting to Angkor Wat by tuk tuk was also easy. There was also a hotel car for the short ride to the airport.

The Sohka is very well known in Siem Reap, so the tuk tuk drivers should have no problem finding it. That said, when you say you're staying there it will probably encourage them to try to charge you a dollar or two more for a fare.

I stayed at the hotel in late February and would recommend that time of year for your visit. The hotel was relatively quiet and the weather was good.

Enjoy Angkor -- it's truly an experience of a lifetime!
