I stayed three nights here while visiting Angkor Wat and Siem Reap. I originally tried to get a room at the Pavillon d’Orient, but they were fully booked. They referred me to the Siddharta Boutique Hotel, and I am very glad they did. The hotel is very nice, clean, quiet, and relaxing. The staff is extremely nice, helpful, and speaks good English. The front desk greets you upon check-in with cool towels and tea, and provides maps, local info, and sightseeing/tour guide options. The entire property seems fairly new, well maintained, and well appointed.
Since I was traveling with a group of three, they had the room set up perfectly with one regular bed and one king-sized bed. The room was spacious, the mattresses were comfortable, and the A/C worked well. They have a good selection of cable channels in English and other languages, and the room has a nice flat-screen TV. There was construction going on next door that was audible during the day, but it wasn't too bad (it was quiet at all times while we were sleeping) and certainly isn't the fault of the hotel .
Outside each room is nice sitting area that overlooks the pool area, which is is nicely landscaped. The pool is salt-water and was the perfect temperature. There are plenty of chairs and towels, and the staff is happy to bring drinks out to you. The upstairs restaurant is nice and the food is good. Daily breakfast was included, offering cooked-to-order omelets or fried rice (plus other standard continental breakfast items). The spa services were adequate for my needs and seem reasonably priced.
The hotel is located on a side-street off the main road between Siem Reap and Angkor Wat. I thought the location was ideal, being central to both places but far enough off the main street to be quiet. Having our driver made getting to Pub Street or other locations in town a quick and easy process.
Our rate included pick-up and drop-off service, plus a daily tuk tuk driver. Our tuk tuk driver was Mr. Sothea Yan, and I highly recommend him. He is very nice, polite, speaks good English (he is self-taught), was always ready to pick us up, and was quick to offer bottles of water and cool towels. He was extremely flexible with our needs, and was always where he should be, when should be. I don't know if the hotel directly employs any drivers, but Sothea represents the hotel very well and they should use him frequently for their guests.
Upon checking out, the manager personally greeted us and asked about our stay. The hotel seems to take customer satisfaction very seriously, and I'm sure if anyone ever has any issues or suggestions they will be more the willing to address them. In short, a great place to stay at a very reasonable price.
