“A real gem of a hotel - a must stay!”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

We stayed for four nights (originally three but extended as the hotel was so nice!) over Christmas 2013 as part of our honeymoon.

The hotel is beautiful and in a great location, easy walking distance from Siem Reap town with no need for a tuk tuk of an evening and Just a short drive (15 mins) from the main Angkor Wat temples.

The staff were amazing and super helpful, we wanted a driver to take us around the temples for two days and they arranged a great man and tuk tuk to collect us at 4.30 for sunrise and drive us around for a couple of days, for only $35!

The food was delicious and the service made you feel like a VIP Guest at all times with the staff happy to help with any queries you had .

I would highly recommend this boutique hotel to anyone looking for something a little special away from the big soulless resorts found elsewhere in Siem Reap!

Thank you all at Karavansara, we hope to visit again :-)

We had a very enjoyable 8 night stay at the Karavansara in November as part of a photography holiday. This was our first visit to Cambodia. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite which was spacious and decorated to a high standard. The apartment was serviced daily. The bed was large and comfortable. The hotel is located in a quiet area but still within 5 minute to 10 stroll from the night market and Pub Street where there are many bars and restaurant. The hotel has a lovely cafe which has a reasonable priced menu. We tended to have lunch there and ventured out in the evenings. Lunches were delicious. We also found the cafe area very relaxing for drinks. The staff were courteous, friendly and attentive without been overbearing. Thanks to the staff and our tuk tuk driver Kiri for making over stay a very relaxing and enjoyable one. We would certainly stay here again.

This boutique hotel is the gen in Siem Reap totally outstanding...well located but quite, good restaurant, great staff that cant do enough to help extremely refreshing...I stayed with my family one of which is 16 months old, great dunk pools on the roof of the accommodation, I stayed in a 2 bed apartment which was spacious and clean...I did use the spar and was so relaxing after the half marathon.

Angkor Wat is a short ride in Tuck Tuck about 8 clicks...but I found the surrounding Temples more interesting,

Room Tip: from what I see at this location all rooms are good

The hotel is located in a good position - away from the noise of Siem Reap but within close walking distance of the market etc. In response to a previous comment I did ask for a hairdryer and it was promptly provided.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The food and service is all of a reasonable standard but I did find breakfast a bit repetitive after four days as the menu is limited.

The rooms were comfortable and very clean although the fan did have an irritating squeak.

I would refer friends to this hotel if visiting Siem Reap - having ticked the temples off my list I am not sure I will be returning.

We have had a really nice stay in Karavansara Hotel. We made the reservation there as friend of us did recommend the hotel (been there few times already) and he was not wrong at all, was a nice and beautiful choice.
We were received with a nice welcome drink, and the staff was really helpful and nice.
The room was clean and beds quite comfy. I would say bathroom would need to be 'more independent' to the bedroom as shower is just separated with a curtain from the bedroom and the toilet is quite quite small.
Breakfast/dining area is lovely and cosy and service is very attentive, although breakfast are not very big.
Location is quite good, not in the busiest area -Pub Street- ( which is great) but not even 5 mins walking.
The roof pool, although it is not big, it is the best end of the day after a long day at Angkor.
I would definitely would recommenced Karavansara for anyone who goes to Siem Riap and want a small, cosy and nice hotel for a very good price.
