The Somadevi hotel is a rather upscale place for a reasonable rate. The rooms, pool, breakfast, and facilities are great. Location is within walking distance of almost all points of interest. Drinks and laundry are overpriced, can buy new clothes for the price they wanted to wash them, but there is a laundry around the corner. Would definetly stay here again, but eat and drink elsewhere.

Room Tip: We had a superior double a little further away from the pool. Quiter great balconywith chaise lounger.

Staff very polite. Had emailed about the need for an extra bed. In a week, no response. Called. Confirmed arrival - bed not ready. When we got into the room, they brought quite stained mattress and dressed it up.

As we are on cleaning, be prepared that there are no "wet floor" signs posted when they clean around the pool or mop the floor, so proceed with caution. However, the place is kept quite clear, except for carpet on stairways that has quite a few greasy stains (carpet spotter would do wonders here).

Mattresses of very good comfort, so rest you will, except - be pre-warned - there is a construction next door that starts at 7 -7:15 am, so you will start your day with them. If not, hotel's staff will wake you up by removing tables from last night dinner at the pool and setting up heavy, wooden lounge chairs (dragging them around) -all starting at about 6:45 am.

Also, be pre-warned about great acoustics in the building. You will hear your next room neighbour farting too - no kidding!

Breakfast (included in price) is very good, however, Staff seems to be overwhelmed when busy. Often had to point out empty set ups (ham, cheese, even coffee) at self serve stations. If you like a bowl of noodles or an omelette, they'll prepare quite a good fare for you. If you eat bread, be prepared to see that a cutting board is being cleaned by half inserting the board into an opening of garbage bin and shaking bread crumbs from it, then ... putting it right back into service despite the fact that staff member used his bare hand to remove bread crumbs and touched garbage bin in the process. Another story was the cloth that should be made available for guests when they cut bread. It was missing on a couple of occasions (we stayed 4 days). I had to ask for it, as the manager that was standing next to stations was oblivious to this. What you will also see every morning are three to four people wiping busily all glasses and cups at the bar. They are all washed there in a little sink but... no sanitizing rinse. Well, at least they are washed. The sign of wiping (all the time with same cloth) is unsettling enough to guests who look at food safety first. Then again, flying insects are free to roam in that dining room, as there is no flying insect defence - makes you wonder how the back of the house looks like....

Pool is great and very clean.

Spa seems to be overpriced compared to what you get outside, so we did not try. Check out time is at noon but you can leave your stuff till pick up. Oh, by the way, you will have to ask them for a pick up from airport and it is extra.

Room Tip: Hotel right in the Center of everything, however, next door construction makes noise from early morning.

Apart from the small bath the room was excellent. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was first class and I looked forward to breakfast which set you up for the day. On the first night we dined outside and were entertained by traditional Cambodian dancers - a must. The pool area was hard to leave and the service there always with a smile. The hotel is ideally situated especially for Pub Street and its nearby bars.

This was our 5th stay at the Somadevi. That's got to tell you something! This time we stayed for 12 nights! For the price, this hotel is the best in Siem Reap. (We've gone 'hotel shopping' over the years while we've stayed there and we just keep going back to the Somadevi. The rooms may not be the very best quality, but they are super clean and extremely comfortable. (Make sure to get a pool view - best view and the morning sun).

The staff are exceptionally friendly and polite (as are all the locals really). We even know a few of them by name (such as we can pronounce, anyway).

Everything is in walking distance - all the markets, the river, the restaurants, supermarkets, specialty shops and more more more. And if it a tuk-tuk you need for the longer journey, the tuk-tuk drivers in this hotel do not rip you off at all! In fact I feel like we should pay them more!

I will stop now or I shall write a few thousand words. Do yourself a favour. Stay here.

Room Tip: Pool view!

I was a group of nine mid 20-something year olds travelling through SE Asia in January. We really enjoyed our stay (three nights) at Somadevi basically because it was so nice. We had just stayed at a rather crud place in Thailand for NYE and Somadevi was paradise in comparison. The service was fantastic, the rooms were super comfy and quite large (really great beds) and the pool was amazing (heads up: it is phenomenally cheaper to get water/ drinks from the minimart around the corner from the hotel than buying it from the pool bar when you overheat). It was the perfect base to walk into the main shopping area (about 10mins) and the hotel was able to organise a minibus for us to get around the temples. The only little angsty thing was they forgot about the minibus we organised to get to the airport but they quickly found one when we realised and we got there on time. A great stay, highly recommended!
