“Jewel of a hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013 via mobile

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, my husband & I booked this boutique hotel close to the Angkor Wat Temples. What a find! The hotel itself is small, which we loved & the staff was friendly, helpful & professional. In fact, I had a sore throat & raspy voice when we arrived. The staff checking us in recommended I try a lemon (really a lime), honey & hot water "tea" then had it sent up to my room at no cost. It was delicious. After unpacking, we ate lunch in the hotel's restaurant where hearing my voice, our waitress brought me the same "tea" again at no cost. And it really did help!! The food served was delicious. We opted for the tuk-tuk driver & interpreter - this was well worth the money. I can't imagine visiting the temples without someone explaining the history & architectural differences. The elephant ride to the entrance of one of the temples (can't remember which one) was an awesome 20-min experience! The tuk-tuk driver was available whenever we needed him which allowed us to travel into town & see the sights. Be aware that the pool, although clean & beautiful, has warm water. We joked that the pool just makes you wet but in no way cools you off. I highly recommend Siddharta & would stay again.

Stayed April 2012, travelled as a couple

We were very impressed the first time we stayed at this hotel, a year ago. So impressed, in fact, that we booked to come back in January 2013. If anything, the Siddharta was even better this time. We have nothing but praise for the friendly, warm and caring staff. Ms Sona is fantastic, as are the other staff on reception. The restaurant was consistently welcoming - whatever time of the day or evening we arrived we could be sure of delicious food served by the most charming, courteous staff one could hope to find - Mr Tem, Mr Ravy, Ms Sophea and all the others made us feel like honoured guests. The buffet breakfast was fabulous the first time we stayed and the choices are now even wider. The cooked to order egg dishes were great, I'm trying to replicate their scrambled eggs at home!
The rooms are lovely, with a tropical feel to them and include your own outdoor lounging space on the verandah, overlooking the lush gardens and the beautifully maintained, sparkling salt water pool. Internet access is good and free, with a modern computer available near the restaurant if you don't have a laptop with you. The massage and spa services are inexpensive and delightful.

If you book directly through the hotel, you get the services of your own dedicated tuk tuk driver included, which is a fantastic bonus. We had Mr Sothea Paon, who was excellent. He knew what times were best to visit places to avoid crowds and even came at 5.30 am so that we could get dawn photographs at various temples!

We travel quite extensively and I would have to say that this hotel is the nicest I have stayed in anywhere in the world. Its friendly charm, obvious commitment to ensuring that each guest is happy and satisfied and total dedication to providing excellent customer service are a credit to the staff AND management. It sounds strange, I know, but I felt quite emotional as we left - it was like we were leaving good friends.

I always try to write balanced reviews, but in the case of this hotel, I honestly can't find a single negative thing to say. As a previous reviewer said, it truly deserves the acclaim it receives on Tripadvisor.

Our room came with a personal tuktuk driver. Mr. Vong was great. Close to temples and convenient to downtown action (by tuk tuk). Stayed in room 303 initially. Room is right under the breakfast area. The noise from above was pretty loud as the buffet tables were being set up, starting about 5 oclock, it seemed. We got moved to 107, which was awesome. The rooms on the first floor on that side have private outdoor seating areas. I think the concrete floors give a little more noise, but the rooms are nicely appointed and overall, the hotel grounds are splendid. Great pool with waterfall. We ate at the restaurant one eveing...quite nice. The breakfast serves from 6-11, to accomodate travellers returning from sunrise at the temples. Pretty varied breakfast selection, and there is an omelette station to boot. The staff was super friendly. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, thanks.

Room Tip: First floor , far side of the pool seems best

If only all visitors to Siem Reap could have the pleasure of enjoying this magnificent hotel. The volume of reviewers heaping acclaim on Siddharta are in no way mistaken-this hotel is heaven. From the very beginning, where we had every detail of our stay explained by the exceptional staff, through to breakfast every morning where staff looked after our every need, we could not find a single fault. We booked the honeymoon suite and it was out of this world. We had a tuk-tuk driver included and he was one of the highlights of our trip. Always ready and waiting with a smile and a bottle of water whenever we needed him for 4 days-we wanted to take him home. All in all this hotel cannot be praised enough for its level of service and the standard of comfort it delivers. It certainly takes the place of the best hotel experience I've had.

Room Tip: The Honeymoon suite is worth the extra $$$

This must be a hidden gem that all travelers in the region should enjoy.

Located between Siem Reap and the Angkor complexes this is a perfect hideaway from the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap. There resort is relatively small, with a nice pool and restaurant area. The rooms are spacious and "fresh" with all the amenities you would need. Fast free wifi covers the grounds.

Considering the rate and a fantastic staff this is a winner for us. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Second floor in the far end of the wings are the best

Great hotel situated just outside of town, but easy access with tuk-tuk or bicycle.. Tuk-tuk were included and transfer to hotel from airport so made it easy and driver will wait for u, otherwise it's 1-2$. Lovely pool to relax on after a hot day of tours and very good breakfast. Rooms were big, and each room has its own terrace area.
Most of all staff were very kind and helpful. Would go back for sure

I booked this hotel upon recommendation of members of my family who had been there last May. And I can only concur with their very favourable impression. The hotel is not a standard chain hotel, nor is it very big. But the minute you walk in, you feel treated like an honoured guest. We were picked up at the airport (with a TukTuk, part of the great experience). The front office manager, after providing us with refreshments and a cold facial towel, explained how to best make use of our time to visit Angkor Vat and its many temples. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The garden was nice, the salt water pool inviting and well maintained.

The hotel included transportation for four days in the cost of the room. A very good arrangement, which avoided us the problem of negotiating conditions of carriage with the driver. As it turned out, our driver was very helpful, careful and attentive to our comfort. Cold bottled water available at any time. And he spared no effort to take us absolutely everywhere we wanted to go. After four days and many miles, we sort of wondered why large Western cities don't just use TukTuks instead of gas-guzzling taxis and burly drivers! Our little trailer pulled by a small motorbike was far more fun than any Lincoln limo!

Breakfast was also included in the room charge, and it was invariably excellent and abundant. Also, a nice spa and massage service.

All this, for a very, very reasonable price. Full marks for the Siddharta Hotel!
