“The pearl of Siem Reap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

I decided to book this hotel after seeing that they won the travelers choice award for best budget hotel in Siem Reap looking at the travelers photos and the professional photos, we decided that it would be a good booking.
We pre-arranged the free airport pickup with the hotel before we left for our vacation and when we arrived at Siem Reap airport there was a friendly smiley Cambodian driver waiting for us there (Thoeun) who took our bags welcomed us to Siem Reap and got us on our merry way to the hotel.
Once along the way to the hotel the Thoeun was constantly checking if we were OK and pointing out different points of interest along the way.
When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by Punlok who was the person that I corresponding with via e-mail, I felt it was a nice touch finally being able to put a face to a name.
We were shown to our room, the room was extremely clean and considering the price, extremely big with Aircon, Satellite TV and a safe deposit box to put all your valuables.
After our bags were taken up and us checked in we spoke with the tuk-tuk driver Thoeun about what we wanted to do in the 3 days we had in Siem Reap, he worked out our itinery with us and seemed genuinely concerned about what we wanted to do and not pushy to sell his service. He was extremely helpful and told us he worked only for the hotel and travels in from his village every day to show tourists at the hotel his beautiful city. Even on our last day at the hotel (despite him having family commitments) he insisted on taking us to the airport personally.
I would really recommend him for anyone interested you can check his services on his site www.wix.com/thoeun/tuktuk

We got up the next day early to see the sunrise at Angkor Wat, the hotel provided with a simple packed breakfast of bread and jam but it did the job. The staff always welcomed us and acknowledged us when we arrived back at the hotel and were always checking if everything was OK.
The waiter in the restaurant Mr. Rong was extremely courteous and helped us with our chairs and napkins and made you feel like royalty rather than just a simple hotel guest. The housekeeping staff were quick efficient and friendly always saying hello to you in the morning and always keeping the room spotlessly clean.
All in all Cambodia has a very special place in our heart and when we do return we will definitely be staying at the Angkor Pearl again and be using Thoeun as our tuk-tuk driver again!

Room Tip: request Thoeun as your driver with the hotel directly excellent driver and good value for money!

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.

Stayed in February 2012 solo and had a great experience. Welcome drink on arrival while they check you in, and the lobby is clean and comfortable. Rooms are a clean, modern and a great value (king bed, fridge, wifi, tv, hot shower for $25). Staff was incredibly helpful and the location is central to Siem Reap and easy walking distance to Pub Street and the river.

This is a great little hotel in Siam Reap. Walking distance to 'bar street' should you wish to visit (although reminiscent of Benidorm), and plenty of other little restaurants and bars near the hotel. The room was very spacious and clean with a modern bathroom with a powerful shower.
Firm bed (as is fashionable in Aisa) with good clean sheets. The breakfast provided a small but good choice of European and Asian fare. What I really liked about this was that is was freshly prepared to order rather than buffet style.
The reception staff were very helpful and even organised our taxi back to the Thailand border. Be warned that you only get a 15 day visa for Thailand when entering via land rather than via air (when you would get 30 days). The taxi journey organised by the hotel was about 30% cheaper than the taxi organised at the border to Siam Reap.
The only complaint was a tuk tuk driver who picked up from outside the hotel. A young man called 'Tee' who charged well above his quote. The first time we though it was our mistake, but the second time showed a lack of integrity on his part. This however, is out of the control of the hotel.
I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a few nights in Siam Reap. If you can stand to get up at 4.45am - the sun rising over Ankor Wat is something quite special.

from when we were picked up from the airport til when we left i loved this hotel. It was very attractive the rooms were large and comfortable and the staff were wonderful and extremely helpful.
the location isnt the best, it is down a kind of dirt track (as many of the roads in siem reap are) and it is a few dollars in a tuk tuk to the main area where the bars and restuarants are, but if you had been there longer (we were only there two days) im sure there weas a lot to see and do in the surrounding area as well.
we only had breakfast on one day, as the day before we got up before dawn to go to angkor wat, but it is included in the price, and there was quite a good selection - you order off the menu, there is no buffet, and it was very tasty.
This hotel was incredibly good value - it feels like a much more expensive hotel, and i would receommened it to anyone, who is visiting siem reap, which is a really wonderful city.

the only downfall of the angkor pearl is the horrendous breakfast. Eat at your own risk, portions are small and flavors are bland and greasy. The rooms and staff and some of the best in Asia. Make sure you book tuktuk driver Mr. Vuthy pronounced Thy. He was a rockstar!! Showed us great spots, very attentitive and friendly. Couldn't have been happier. Great budget hotel!
