“Loved City River Hotel”
Reviewed March 10, 2010

City River Hotel is a great value for your money. It's very clean, the staff is very friendly, the restaurant was good, and the pool was wonderful. We were pleasantly surprised by the placard cards at the airport held by driver's to the hotel which we didn't realize was arranged. The conceirge was very helpful in arranging driver's and tour guides for our excursions, all of whom were very friendly.

Gd location, walking distance to Old Market & Pub Street. There is a supermart midway between hotel & Old Market, convenient to stock up our water supplies. We took up a package plan for 4D3N (deluxe twin room) for USD$259 (inclusive of transport to/fro airport & within Siem Reap for all 4 days). We were surprised & delighted that the hotel actually arranged for the same car throughout our stay in Siem Reap. We thought only car was provided for airport transfer while within Siem Reap, it will be tuk-tuk. Perhaps it was not the busy season, that's why we were lucky to have a car, we are not sure. Anyway, given the heat, I would recommend the use of car, esp if travelling to faraway sites like Banteay Srei. The room was very clean & room amenities were good. Hotel staff were friendly & polite. The breakfast spread was ok.

We booked this hotel at the last minute but it turned out to be a really good choice. Its riverside location is lovely and the perfect distance away (a couple of minutes walk) from the centre of Siem Reap with its restaurants and markets. Close enough to easily walk to, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.

The hotel has everything you need, and a nice rooftop pool. We didn't eat much in the restaurant as there are so many others nearby. The staff were really friendly and helpful too.

The good things: location is v convenient (short walk to restaurants, old market etc); rooms are spacious, beds v comfortable; decor a bit old fashioned but no real problem.
Bad: pool is open only from 8.30 to 7.30 ie impossible to swim early am and late evening. during the day the only shade around the pool are a few inadequate umbrellas. Unless you want instant skin cancer, it's a place to avoid until at least 5.
Similarly the gym is useless as it's not air conditioned.
The breakfasts are lavish but the only cereal is pallid cornflakes and there is no yoghurt. In contrast, street stalls around the temple complexes sell meusli and yoghurt for breakfast! the only bread is awful white bread.
Service is v good and the place is very clean.
There is no air con in the dining area.

SIEMREAPRIVER, General Manager at City River Hotel, responded to this review, February 24, 2010
First of all, we'd like to thank you for choosing our hotel for you stay in Siem Reap. Unfortunately, there must have been some misunderstanding regarding the swimming pool hours. Our swimming pool open from 8:30am to 11:00pm. We have at least six umbrellas and two booths at our pool area to provide plenty of shades for our guests to avoid direct sun light.

Our breakfast offer varieties of both Western and Asian foods. We've been adding more every so often to better satisfy ours guest from different part of the world.

We apologize that you're not fully satisfied with our services. We take every comment very seriously and will continue to improve our quality of service to better serve you again in the near future.

General Manager,
City River Hotel
