I really had trouble giving a balanced review of this hotel, so here goes. Pros Position, on a corner opposite the river. Right in the centre of it. Staff, smiling and helpful. Food, pretty good in the downstairs restaurant. Cons Position, yes it is riverside, or some rooms have river views/glances There are a lot of girly bars nearby and... More

- I think many of the negative reviews are old. At least some of the rooms have been renovated recently; It is nicer than I recall from previous visits, but at the same price. - Room 100: spacious and well lighted, Very comfortable queen bed (among the best slumbers I've had in a month of travel in Asia). It also... More

As with any hotel at this level you take the good with the bad. We paid a little extra for the river view room which was still a reasonable price. In fact, without the view there wouldn't have been much else to say. Enjoying their room service breakfast over the river in the morning was fantastic. Not the food itself,... More

Of the many similarly-graded hotels that I have patronized throughout SEAsia over the last 8 months, I assign my own 5 Star rating to the Three Star River Star Hotel. Its location is perfect--right on the riverfront, especially with a 4th Floor river view room that has a balcony & a small table with chairs. I spent much time watching... More

No breakfast included though I booked some. Staff is friendly yet speaks hardly English. Though bus transfer to Siem reap was managed Rooms okay clean but nice. River is opposite the road. Nice restaurants in the vicinity as well as supermarkets and bars.

Renovated earlier this year and I was happily surprised to see it. Staying at the hotel was doing me not so much annoying as comfortable.
