“A boutique property with lots of charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Viroth's is situated a short walk (10-15min) away from the Old Market & Pub St, and hence slightly away from the hustle and bustle of Pub St. This is a boutique accommodation with only 7 rooms, all of which are tastefully decorated with fresh cut flowers throughout our 5-night stay. Rooms are a good size and spotlessly clean. Breakfast provided is adequate. Small pool, but perfect for cooling off after a day in the temples & wats. The rooftop terrace was also quite pleasant for chilling off when the sun is not scorching. All staff were friendly and courteous and always happy to assist. We also had dinner at their sister restaurant (a short walk away) and it was one of the better meals we had in Siem Reap. Overall, Viroth's is a fantastic property in a great spot if you don't want a generic business hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms ideal for couples, but perhaps less suited to sharing friends as the shower area looks on to t...

We stayed for 3 nights in June 2013 following a recommendation from a friend - Viroth's did not disappoint. We arrived mid-evening after a fairly hairy bus ride from Phnom Penh (beginning of monsoon season makes for extra dangerous road travel), after a warm welcome, we were given a large ground floor room and promptly crashed out.

As I'm sure is the case with most visitors to Siem Reap, we spent our days pottering around the Temples of Angkor (choosing to do this by bike, rented from Camouflage Adventure, who Viroth's recommended). We tended to get up, cycle up to the Angkor sites for sunrise and stay until late morning when we'd retire to Viroth's for a few hours to miss the heat of the day before heading back to Angkor for sunset.

There seemed to be very few other guests in the hotel which meant we had nearly exclusive use of the pool and the roof-top bar, exactly the right tonic to the June heat and the invasion of visitors that takes place at Angkor by late morning.

The location, slightly off the beaten track puts the night-life of Siem Reap within easy reach but far enough away that if you don't want to be exposed to it (or bothered by it) you aren’t. We ate at Viroth's restaurant which is well worth trying it is 5 minutes walk from the hotel.

It's not cheap (relative to that part of the world) but with attentive staff, beautiful, well executed design and a relaxed atmosphere it is certainly worth the money.

Room Tip: We stayed in the ground floor suite with it's own small private garden - high walls and dense pl...

Viroth's is set away from the hustle and bustle of Pub street on the other side of the river. While there are always plenty of offers for a tuk-tuk (not worth the $1-$2 they'll try to charge), it's only a ten minute stroll to the old market and the action, so it's easier to walk.
The reception area is immaculate and the staff are welcoming and always helpful. The salt water pool is very clean, it's not that deep but the temperature is good.
The rooms are spacious and very clean, but the showers don't have a screen/door so those a little shy you may find yourself a little exposed! Water and wifi are provided free of charge - and breakfast is included too. It's a somewhat limited menu, but delicious nonetheless with assorted breads with dragon fruit jam, noodle soup (great with an egg) or seasonal fruits.
Viroth's is a quiet haven in which you can relax after a busy day of temple visits.

Clean, modern and well located hotel. Has a spacious roof terrace, which can be used any time and otherwise serves for breakfast.

Stayed for a night in room 4, which is spacious and whilst facing the street quiet.

The greatest asset to the hotel is its staff - welcoming, helpful and reliable. Well done to Saay, managing guests and reservations. My reservation seem to be double-booked by the agency I used, however they made an effort to put me in a partnering hotel for a night, which ended up being an upgrade.

I have been to Cambodia several times and have stayed at a few other hotels in Siem Reap, because I was unable to procure in the first instance a booking at Viroths. Its popularity is no surprise! This hotel is a very welcoming and comfortable place to stay. It is small and has an understated retro French aesthetic that is manifested in the breakfast music, furnishings and ornamental pieces. The beds are firm not hard as reported in a previous review ( and I have slept in most of the seven rooms).
The breakfast is bountiful without being over stated.
The hotel is so very clean and the attention to detail by the staff to your every need without being cloyingly servile is most welcoming. The tuk tuk drivers in the vicinity of the hotel are exceptionally friendly. The clients staying at the hotel seem to be mainly couples and singles who want to escape from the usual tour bus shuttle type of hotels.
The manager Mr Saay is a great ambassador for this hotel and despite the hotel's popularity the quality of friendly service does not change. The restaurant 5 minutes up the road is also consistently of a high standard.

Room Tip: room 6 is th e biggest by a fraction

Was torn between booking a traditonal khmer style villa or a modern hotel for our 5 day trip in Cambodia. Chose Viroths based on TA reviews. V happy with our stay, the manager extremely helpful (was very gracious about late check-out), pool area although small was very well done, and the room was kept immaculately clean.

We were given room 6 which was directly below the upstairs kitchen and would wake up at times because of shuffling from kitchen. Aside from this we had an excellent stay. Woul recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for 4 nights in July 2013. The hotel only has 6 rooms and I'd say half were booked during our stay (which is low season in Siem Reap). We had room #6 which is on the 2nd floor. The room (and bathrooms) were clean, guests quiet and respectful, and the staff competent though their English skills were a bit limited.

The included breakfast is nothing fancy, but a great way to start the day - croissants, eggs your way, orange juice, coffee and fresh fruit - what more could you want? After breakfast, hang by the pool before heading off to visit the temples and markets of the city, all of which are a short walk or a quick tuk tuk ride away.

If its your first time visiting Siem Reap and you want a great boutique hotel experience at a reasonable price, I would check-in to Viroth's. I think the rooms on the ground floor are the best and I'd ask for room #1 if I were to go back.

Room Tip: Ground floor, room #1 right next to reception.
