The Royal Crown Hotel is on the outskirts of Siem Reap, within a 5-minute walk of the town centre with its crowds, bars, restaurants and markets. Our rooms were extremely spacious and clean. Unfortunately, my room looked out on a building site (as related by Newmorton in her review). It would have been impossible to nap between the hours of 7am and 5pm, but then........we had booked a van, driver and guide, through the hotel, for the duration of our stay, so I didn't bother requesting to change rooms. It would have probably been pointless as the hotel was overbooked in any case. [That could have been a problem!!! We were asked to pay for our rooms on arrival and after we had done so, the manager told us that we would have to move to a different hotel, after 2 nights, as he was overbooked. We argued the toss and, in the end, we were told that we would not have to move. ] That issue aside, the manager, Mr Leng Meng Srong, was charming. He was so charming, that I felt guilty about not moving out to the upgraded hotel offered. BUT we didn't want to split our stay. By return email, after booking the hotel, Mr Leng Meng Srong had offered us an itinerary to view the ruins. We took up this offer and were delighted that we had. The days were well-planned and the guide very informative. The staff were all very friendly. I have no qualms about recommending the Royal Crown and would stay there again should I visit Siem Reap. Mind you.............there are now so many hotels, and the place is so packed, it is becoming a victim of its success.
