We felt welcomed since the very start. As soon as we landed, one of the hotel's tuk tuk drivers was already there waiting for us. Thoeun ended up being our driver for the entire stay.
Our check in time was 12 pm but we were able to go to our room about 3 hours earlier free of charge which was excellent after having an early morning flight. While we waited for our room (for less than 15 minutes), Thoeun was telling us all about the the city and asking us what we expected to see. We felt that he was not pushy or forced at all and that he was truly trying to help us to decide on what to do in such short time. My husband and I would really recommend him as he catered to our needs and was very helpful. If you want to contact him, he has a website that you can check: www.wix.com/thoeun/tuktuk.
The employees at the front desk, Mr Punlok, Miss Sonita and Mr Bross, always greeted us and were very attentive. Mr Rong, the employee who works morning shifts at the restaurant, is also always smiling and is incredibly polite, pulling the chairs out for you and even helping you with your napkin! By the way, the food there is really good. For breakfast you have quite a few options and we actually had several meals at the hotel because it was not overpriced and it tasted really good!
Location is excellent, far from noisy bars and still very close to all of the restaurants and local markets (about 10 minutes walk, if that). We did have a safe deposit box in the room, which was a plus, and wireless connection worked in our room. The room is very clean and large for the price that you pay. It feels very cozy because of the beautiful wood work too.
I highly recommend this hotel as it's excellent value for money. When you leave, they also give you a scarf as a present to remind you of your stay in Siem Reap. We will definitely go back to Cambodia, as it was the highlight of our trip, and it's very likely that we will return to the Angkor Pearl Hotel.
