The River Garden is a great boutique hotel. The hotel has just a few rooms spread out over the property with stone paths, lush plants, and tiny ponds. The restaurant serves an extensive menu of Khmer and Western food in the open air restaurant. The pool has plenty of chairs and sitting areas is a wonderful place to relax after a long day spent exploring. We enjoyed the Cooks in Tuk Tuks class, particularly the experience of being guided through the local market.
There are places in Siem Reap where you can stay for cheaper, and there are places where you can stay in greater luxury, but I can't imagine finding one that provides a better experience. Exploring the temples of Angkor in the Cambodian heat is exhausting, but having the River Garden and its beautiful setting to return to after each day was better than any other Siem Reap hotel experience I can envision.
