The Tara Angkor has everything a 4-star hotel should have—onsite restaurants, a bar, gift store, ability to arrange tours, and a spa. It's on the main street to Angkor Wat and also not that far from the Night and Traditional Markets.
The bed is one of the firmest I've ever slept on. I think a futon is softer. Although it wasn't the best for my taste, I slept quite well. The HVAC is one of the quietest.
The complimentary breakfast buffet was a bit of a disappointment. The dining room is smaller than the capacity of the hotel. Some days I had to clear a table to get a place to sit, as the staff wasn't around. The buffet had vegetarian, Asian, and Western choices, but the quality was quite average.
I was there over New Year's Eve. The hotel contacted me two days prior to leaving the USA to tell me there was a compulsory $55 charge per person for New Year's Eve. I was to attend their party. I found that a bit outrageous because I got great meals for $5 at the Night Market. I would have chosen to go there. (Of course I could have, but I would still be required to remit $55 to the hotel.)
The spa treatment I had was wonderful—a body scrub followed by a 60 minute massage.
If you stay at the hotel, I recommend eating elsewhere. There is some amazing food in Siem Reap, it's just not at the Tara.
