Reviewed January 25, 2009

Andre and Lily run a lovely getaway in Siem Reap. This is a great place to relax after a hasty day in Angkor. The rooms are magnificent to Cambodian standards, elegantly decorated and very clean. The food served is a pleasant combination of western and Khmer whereas the pool and its surroundings are second to none. Especially if you consider the prices they humbly charge for all this beauty.
And it is the only place where you can enjoy dinner on the watertower looking at Angkor at night. Do experience this, as it will make a lasting impression.
Away from all the husstle and bustle of SR, this is a gem!

The Lotus Lodge was a fabulous hotel. It's a 5-10 minute tuk tuk ride from the middle of town ($3) and tuk tuks are always aplenty even during high season. Great pool and poolside dining with really good food and an extensive menu. The staff gave us the most amazing service we've ever had. Whatever we wanted they booked for us, and handled all the details. They were gracious and helpful at all times, even when I had to make phone calls to the West in the middle of the night and kept them up helping me. The quiet was well worth not staying downtown. We stayed a few blocks from Pub Street for part of our stay and were kept awake until 2am every night. We are in our 30's with no kids and like to party, but 2am EVERY nite was too much. The Lotus Lodge was very quiet. The Internet connection and computers in the lobby were invaluable. Plenty of cable channels and remote controlled air conditioning were also part of the deal. Thanks Lotus Lodge we love you!

Having read a negative response about hotel from the Nov 10, 2008, has seriously begun to worry – at the time of reading I already reserved room. However after arrival it was found out that all told by negative review is lie from beginning to end!

Undoubtedly, from all hotels in Indochina and in the Middle East where I could visit, this the best!

After arrival we were met by general manager Andre Ruys, very pleasant and polite person. He has shown us hotel and has invited to welcome drink.

At first sight the hotel seems an oasis of cleanliness among surrounding structures. All territory seems very clean, in a small pond small fishes float, and the pool is filled by pure water. In cool water of pool it is pleasant to bathe after day excursions, and the hotel gives beach towels and chaise lounges.

Rooms in a fine condition, with good sound insulation. In each room there is a conditioner, the fan, the TV, a refrigerator.

At restaurant it is possible to order dishes of khmer kitchen, prepare it is very tasty. The excellent breakfast-buffet in the morning is given. There is juice, fruit, pancakes, sausages, the omelette, etc.

Personnel renders the every possible help. In hotel there is a special assistance on work with clients – Lim Lily, perfectly speaking English. With her help we have specified all details of visiting of Angkor interesting us, and also have ordered the car with the driver under the good price. And for the next day we take a bycicles, provided by hotel fo free.

I am absolutely happy with stay in hotel.

We stayed at Lotus Lodge for three nights recently and found it lived up to the glowing reports of other reviewers. The kindness and interest of the staff in the guests who come from a wide range of countries was outstanding. My son and I were feeling poorly at the end of our trip throughout the region and were cooked special broths and helped with medicine. The Lodge is not in the noisy centre but is ten minutes outside with a free shuttle in and out of town in the evening. Rooms were large and comfortable and we had a fridge and TV. The pool was new and well looked after and the eating area nearby was great for having a drink or snack around the pool. Security was great and it was quiet and peaceful at night. It was a real Khmer experience - no plastic high rise hotels in sight, and all this for an incredibly cheap price!
The Lodge welcomed families and there was a wide range of age groups and nationalities.

We stayed here for a couple of days in a nice bungalow and we liked the green and quiet surroundings, the nice food and the pool. The owner and his friendly wife are very enthusiastic about the Cambodia and can give you lots of tips of what places to go.

You can use bicycle for free, so it is no problem that the lodge is a little bit outside the city center.

Apart from running the lodge they are involved in running an orphanage located in Phnom Penh (www.colt-cambodia.org).

The Lotus Lodge is a place with hotel quality for a low price. It's location is an oasis of tranquility, a 10 minutes drive away from the crowded city center. Striking is the kindness of the staff and their intrest in their guests.

The 36 (non-smoking) rooms are situated in 3 parallel tropical lanes of 12 rooms and are equiped with all the necessities: AC, fridge, bathroom with hot water and spacious beds with good matrasses. In front of each room there is a small terrace with a bench.

The lodge has a nice swimming pool with beds and parasols, with a bar alongside, next to the restaurant. There is also a pool table (for free).

The quality of the (Khmer) food in the restaurant is outstanding.
Breakfast is included and offers you toast, pancakes, jam, eggs (boiled and scrambled), fruit, coffee, tea, baguettes, milk and juices.

All in all a great place to be!

Friend of mine and I stayed in Lotus Lodge for 3 nights from December 4th. We were amazed how nice and polite are all the employees in the lodge. They have booked a tuk tuk dirver, a guide, a car driver, even a buffet dinner with Khmer dance for us. It is like an all inclusive resort. You pay everything on the end, including your expenses at the restaurant. The rooms are basic but very clean. We had a deluxe room and we paid 35US$ per night. Room had a fridge as advertised. I had stomach problem and when Lilly heard about it, she immediately gave me some Chinese medicine, and special soup first (without charging for it) and my stomach was OK after 30 minutes after taking pills she gave me!
Every member of the stuff was so nice too. I travel lot, but haven't had this kind of the welcome treatment anywhere in the world like I had in the Lotus Lodge!
