Angkor Pearl Hotel
Ranked #105 of 384 Hotels in Siem Reap
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 May 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of May. We emailed the hotel and Sam to be our driver. Our flight was delayed for about 3 hours due to the weather condition. Sam was very patient and timely responded when I texted him about the delay. We arrived in the late evening and front desk staff are all very helpful. They also helped us book an air ticket from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh. They understand your request and respond timely. The room is big enough for two people and has plenty of space for storage. Air conditioning worked well. The bathroom is clean and neat. The location of the hotel is close enough to the night market and pub street but quiet. Sam took us for two days and his friend Bum took us for the 3rd day. Sam speaks very good English and also brief us about the history and local culture before we visit the temples. He also kindly prepared iced cold water and tissue for us when we come out from the heat. He's also a very cautious driver and always waiting for us on time. He can also spot us when we look for him in the crowd. We did hear some complaints from other tourists about their drivers being late and missing the ideal time to visit the temples. This never happened to us. It's all been nicely arranged. Bum is just as nice as Sam but with less English and a little shy. But that doesn't stop him from being an excellent driver and get everything ready for us. Sam's email is samtuktuk@yahoo.com. We definietly recommend you to contact him in advance. It could save so much time and trouble.

Stayed here in January 2012. This was a very nice hotel, and for the money must be one of the best value hotels I have stayed in. It is well decorated with traditional wood carvings and does not look budget in anyway whatsoever. The breakfast is cooked to order and is included and was very nice (but traditional food). When I first arrived it was about 7pm and the dimly lit street gave the impression you were in the middle of Beirut. The main street is not tarmacked and the street lights very dim. I did expect the worst, however the hotel was great and the area is safe and the people friendly. The main bar street is about 10 minute’s walk but reminded me of Benidorm . Just music blasting and inflated prices.
One word of caution, be careful of the drivers outside the hotel. They are not affiliated with the hotel and will rip you off if you do not agree the price in advance. One driver in particular called Tee (should be tea leaf) charged us $15 for an early morning trip to Angor Watt which lasted 3 hours. You would normally pay $15 for a whole day or $8 for half a day max, so not impressed, but because we assumed it would be the half day price and did not agree it in advanced he choose to rip us off . I would also say that the Taxi from Poipet tried to drop us off at a relay station which is another scam. Stay in the taxi and insist they take you to the hotel otherwise the drivers mate will scam you for an unnecessary tuk tuk ride. The dry cleaners across the road has dodgy scales and weighs well over the actual amount.
Siem Reap is a dump imo but the temple complex is amazing and deserves at least two days of exploration. I would recommend you take half day trips as a full day would just be too exhausting. The hotel however is an absolute bargain.

lovely clean basic hotel. great value for money. staff were friendly and quite helpful. we stayed in april so it was very hot - air con took a little bit to cool the room but it did work well. breakfast was yummy and there was a good range of food. we were on the 4th floor (stairs, no lift - but we didn't mind that at all) toward the back of the hotel so it was nice and quiet!
great location with only a short stroll into the main area of siem reap with all of the restaurants etc.
we used one of the tuk tuk drivers from the hotel for the few days we were there and he was lovely and helpful.
would happily stay here again!

Room Tip: if you don't like stairs then opt for a lower floor.

A very good value for your money but will compromise class and comfort. A home away from home.

The road going to the hotel is not good. If you were taking the tuktuk, you would definitely have a bumpy ride...(part of the experience). As for the hotel and it's facilities I think that this is by far the best hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia for me, they really take their work seriously....I will definitely come back!

Room Tip: This is not really far from the bus stations, so it's best to ask the hotel people to arrange so...

For 10 USD, you get a good-sized standard room with bathroom amenities, bottled water, buffet breakfast, airport transfer and a working wi-fi connection.

Booking a room was easy, no need to make a downpayment or guarantee with a credit card. Mr. Punlok whom I corresponded with prior to my arrival answered my inquiries promptly. Likewise, the rest of the front office staff were also helpful during my stay.

I also booked a tour of the temples through the hotel. Thean, the guide they provided was helpful and very informative. The water included in the tour fee was also very much needed as the weather is very warm at this time of the year.

I guess the only comment on the negative side that I can say is that though the room is clean, the shower handle is a bit loose, the bath tub has black spots and the bathroom door is difficult to close.

Do get the hotel's business card or memorize the address as tuktuk drivers seem not to know or pretend not to know the hotel nor the street where it is located.

Room Tip: The hotel doesn't have an elevator so request for a room at a lower floor if you have mobility...

We had a nice, but not excellent stay at Angkor Pearl. The tour guide and driver they set us up with for Angkor Wat were both great. We got a three-bed room for $30 -- great deal. At first we were on the fourth floor, and the shower handle was broken, no shower curtain, and no wifi access. We moved to a room on the second floor, and it didn't have those problems (except wifi only worked sometimes). The only other glitch was a shirt got mixed up with someone else's when we had laundry done, and mine was gone for good. The staff were very friendly.
