“Great place to sleep and explore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

Let's start with the few negatives. Angkor Spirit Palace needs some updating. There were some stains on the wall from what appeared to be a fixed roof leak. The place was a bit dusty, but the rooms were clean. The shower was missing a sliding door which caused some water to cover the bathroom floor. The furniture was a bit outdated, but we were not looking for modern luxury comforts. The hotel exterior and surrounding has a beautiful charm to it, and we enjoyed exploring the hotel almost as much as the temples! The pool was also very clean and was refreshing after a hot day of exploring around Siem Reap.

The staff were extremely helpful and greeted you every time you passed by. Breakfast is included, the fruit and yogurt were amazing (I have a very sensitive stomach and did not have any problems with anything I ate here). There is a free tuk-tuk pick up from the airport, also until 10 pm, a tuk-tuk driver will take you to and from the town which takes about 10 to 15 minutes. One of the drivers, Mr. Bea, also took us by tuk-tuk, for the whole day to Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, Bayon, Killing Fields, and a few other places. I'm not sure how much a tour would have cost, but all we needed was transportation as we have books. Wi-fi was not too bad!

People make a place and the staff at Angkor Spirit Palace hotel couldn't have been more delightful. I don't think Mr. Sochea, the manager, ever slept. He certainly always seemed to be there, smiling, no matter what happened (a power outage one evening for example). The sweet, kind breakfast staff couldn't do enough for you. I arrived with my ipad and the attendant rushed to find an extra chair so I didn't have to clutter the table while I was eating. Everyone spoke a bit of English and even if they didn't, they so clearly just wanted to help that a little non verbal communication went a long way.

The location of this hotel is actually quite a bit outside the town of Siem Reap and that's a good thing! It made it more of an oasis and since the hotel provided tuk-tuk transport to town anytime we needed it, it was the best of both worlds. They also arranged for drivers and guides and tours as needed, very concerned for customer satisfaction. And there's a pool! A good one! Is there anything better than a swim after hours spent in awe and dust inside temples?

Angkor Spirit Palace exceeded the expectations by leaps and bounds. This is a very peaceful hotel just outside the city, not so far from it at the same time. The amount of greenery in the campus is amazing. It is perfect and most ideal to relax and rest after having spent a really tiring day at the Angkor Archaeological Park. Touring the temples can be really tiring as they are huge and there are a number of stairs that need to be climbed, which makes it all the more important and required that the hotel be nice and quiet. Angkor Spirit Palace is all of these. Not very far from the airport too. Takes about 20 minutes by tuktuk. Almost the same time to reach Angkor Archaeological Wat.

Room Tip: Room numbers 106-109, on the side of the swimming pool are amazing.

My family of five stayed here and loved it. The pool is superb after a day of temple hopping or sight seeing. Food is great and the staff are very helpful friendly.
Far enough from the rat race for some peace but a short tuk tuk into the main part.

Just stayed here for a night but man this place was very nice! Location is nice, not too far not to near (10-15 mins) on the busy streets of Siem Reap. Free tuk tuk rides are available at the place so it's not a hassle if you decided to roam around the city.

The rooms are big and clean with a big toilet too, other facilities like A/C, tv, refrigerator, wifi, etc. are provided and in good running condition, there are even several common toilets aside from your own toilet in the room. The place was so unique that you would still feel you're still at the Angkor Archaeological Site because of the hotel's intricate design, the atmosphere was very peaceful and very nice to relax after a tiring "temple" hopping. Finishing off your day at the pool is so so sweet and relaxing.

The staff are also very friendly and accommodating and it seems they would provide you tips on where/where not to go (didn't have much time for this as our group was on a rush). Breakfast was nice and satisfying, I am not sure if there are nearby restaurants to eat near the place (if you don't feel like eating at the hotel).

If you are looking for an ok price with a bit more comfort, this is the place for you! Angkor Spirit Palace is absolutely charming and unique. It's an old Apsara dance school, so the architecture is more beautiful and more special than the other places you might find in Siem Reap Cambodia. The staff is kind and friendly, always helpful and trustful. The location is for me perfect because it is quiet but close enough from the down town center if you feel like some extra fun! I've spent almost a month in this hotel and had the chance to visit some other guest houses around, my experience is that I was lucky to find the best place in town ! :)

We stayed here for 4 days and found it such a peaceful haven after the noise, dust and crowds in Siem Reap. We had been worried that it was far from the town, but it was a very short tuk tuk drive (10 minutes) and the free tuktuks were always available for us. We were upgraded on arrival which made it very good value - excellent rooms, good choice for breakfast and friendly staff who are always willing to help. We enjoyed swimming in the pool, especially in the evening - and the gardens are delightful too. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a relaxing and enjoyable break.
