Ivy rooms are very basic but neat and clean. We made use of the chillout area on the roof regularly (which was very relaxing when it was raining). The food here is great and they have a $1 tapas night and happy hour. Service was friendly and they can organise transport for you if you need. All in all it was a good experience and would recommend ivy to travellers on a budget.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The original Ivy opened in December 1999, as the second western run business in the Old Market (by a couple of months). Owners Karl & Vannary have been catering to Siem Reap backpackers ever since and provide a warm homely atmosphere in which to enjoy your time visiting Angkor and the surrounding area. The guesthouse has 20 rooms (8 single w/fan, 8 double w/fan and 4 double a/c) all with en-suite facilities. The current Guesthouse opened in 2005 and is conveniently located along the Siem Reap river just minutes from the Old Market area and the center of town, it has since been improved with more rooms, air-conditioning and wifi-facilities. The Ivy provides a perfect budget option in the heart of Siem Reap. The simple rooms are cleaned everyday and are great for travellers trying to get a feel of Siem Reap before the rapid development of recent years. Whilst Siem Reap and Phnom Penh have rushed to develop over the past decade the majority of Cambodians are still farmers and live very simply in the countryside. The pace of life is slow and relaxed and family is the most important aspect of people's lives. The Ivy reflects this ideology and provides a fantastic atmosphere to relax and unwind after a day's exploration. Take advantage of the highspeed internet, unwind in the lounge, grab a hammock on the upstairs balcony or veg out on the sofa and watch some cable TV. The Ivy provides laundry service, bicycle rental, as well as bus and tuk-tuk reservations. Our English speaking staff are a wealth of local information and can assist you in booking trips to Angkor Wat and the surrounding area as well as inbound and onward travel. All at no extra charge. The Ivy and its owner, Van also prides herself on making some of the best food at incredible value for money. The all day breakfast is renowned and suitably large enough to sustain a long day out. The Khmer food is cheap and is prepared perfectly, this is complemented by an wide range of western favourites selected from menu created by a western chef exclusively for the Ivy back in 2001. There are also regular tapas and world food evenings and occasionally freebies of Vannary's latest new dishes. Find out why we are a firm favourite of the expat community in Siem Reap. ... more less
