We had a great stay at the Terrasse des Elephants after being so disappointed with another Hotel we walked out. We did have this Hotel on our radar so we thought about trying it and got a Tuk Tuk and walked in hoping it was better. It was FAR better and Ms Chanrey in Reception was a complete star showing us two rooms and getting us checked in straight away. In fact Ms Chanrey was a complete star for the whole of our stay, she can speak good English is very helpful, friendly, and a beautiful smile.
The Hotel is one of the best located in Siem Reap if you want to be in town and near the market area. A 2 minute walk to Pub Street means it is far enough away to not hear it, but you can be there very quickly. We have stayed in Siem Reap before and the Tuk Tuks are excellent, but staying here you don't need one.
The swimming pool on the top floor is very good, plenty of beds. They could do with a bit more shade that would be my only criticism.
Now we didn't book this hotel originally because it did not have a lift. That turned out to be the wrong decision, because there is only 3 floors and the steps are not steep at all. Walking up them is no problem at all, and of course your bags are carried up for you. So I can assure you that the absence of a lift is no problem.
The restaurant is large and airer and it is partly outside and partly covered so perfect really. We only had Breakfast and it was fine. The rooms are the jewel in this Hotel, they are solid walls, and very spacious. They are decorated better than any other we have come across in Asia, it was a joy to stay there. To sum up we had a great time here and would 100% go back here if we visit again, Thanks again to Ms Chanrey you helped us out and we won't forget that.
