“Amazing staff and really good value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014 via mobile

This hotel is really good. The staff are super friendly and will do anything to help you. It's very clean and the room is like new everyday. The food at the restaurant is good and if you are feeling lazy you can call it to your room. Every night you get a traditional bed time story which is so nice to come home too after a big day. I just wish they had rooms for 1 because then I could have stayed after my friend moved on!! It is a wee drive out but you can get a tuk tuk for 2$. End of the day, if you want somewhere nice and are willing to pay a few extra $$ then don't hesitate! !!

We spent 3 nights here. Flawless. 5 star service for 1 star price. Great room. Nice, inexpensive restaurant. Decent breakfast. Amazing pool. Amazing, helpful staff. All the staff was super friendly and upon our request they arranged the trips for us within few minutes. We arrived on the bus from Saigon and there was hotel tuk tuk driver waiting for us with the hotel logo and my name on the board. Free rides from the hotel to the city and back. Room was cleaned up at least once a day. Upon check out we were surprised with the gift from the hotel. Amazing, amazing, amazing hotel and service. I would recommend it even to the most spoiled moneywise travelers ;) The only drawback is the bathroom which is a little bit outdated but nothing bad.

The Gloria Angkor hotel deserves extra stars for the service. The staff was attentive, and were so thorough in creating a comfortable, enjoyable stay for us. The free tuk tuk service to downtown Siem Reap was available at the drop of a hat and waited for us to return us back to the hotel. They gave us their tuk tuk driver for the afternoon at a price that was lower than any that we had heard from other drivers, not to mention they had complimentary bikes that we used for an entire day. The breakfast is not only delicious, but available ALL DAY. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet, and the pool was spectacular for relaxing in the scorching heat. But the real star of this hotel is the top notch staff that rivals service in much more expensive hotels and resorts.

We booked this hotel for 78USD for two nights. We stayed in the 3rd floor near the terrace on the right. The room is huge! I was expecting it to be small since we didn't pay so much but the room is between 3 star to 4 star :) It has bath tub, toiletries are complete (soap, foam soap for tub, shampoo, dental kit) The hair dryer was not in the toilet, it was actually in one of the drawers (I did not use it because I didn't need it) There was complimentary fruit, tea,coffee, and bottled water. Room service done everyday!

They accept check-in as early as 7AM and even provided free tuktuk service to and from the bus station. Wifi-connection is too slow, I could not use the internet in our room but it is okay for us since we don't really need it that much. Breakfast was okay. Don't expect too much. In-house food in their restaurant is just okay; decent but nothing special about it.

Also the one we wanted was a king-size bed but we got two beds. Since we can fit in one of the beds, we just go on with the room that was given to us. They actually tried to find a new room, they said that there is no vacancy as of the moment and so we did not insist.

We also tried they in-house oil massage for 10USD/hr! Really a bargain! It was worth it and we felt relaxed after :)

Staff were very polite and they are very hospitable. They even let us print the bus itineraries we booked since a hardcopy was needed. They try to go extra mile of service and for me that is a plus factor in choosing hotels. They also arranged our trip to the temples. it was okay though I think that coordination must be improved between the hotel and the tuktuk driver. They should properly brief the driver to explain the itineraries that were agreed upon. Since we were there to enjoy our vacation, we just let those simple things pass but definitely the itineraries that we selected were not the ones we had. The driver that was assigned to us took us in different temples and did not actually refer to the guide that we had. So this is an extra tip for those who have planned itineraries in visiting the temples.

The hotel is 10-15 mins away from the actual entrance of temples.
Would I recommend this hotel? For this very affordable price, I could say we got the best for what we have paid for!

Hotel provide some activities in siem reap, like tour visit temple of Angkor. USD$13 for group. USD$ 15 for 1 day "tuk tuk".
But the breakfast is not good.

Experiencing genuine Khmer service doesn't have to be pricey. My family and I can attest that they are true to their claim of "warmest accommodation in Siem Reap". We definitely got a good deal in availing their tour package. Aside from the inclusions described in their website, we got extra bonuses during our stay. Since it was my birthday on the day of our check out, they still managed to give me a surprise, take note, free of charge. Aside from the cake, balloons, fruits, and a bottle of wine, what I cherished most is when I received heart-warming Khmer greetings together with a birthday song sang in their language from all their employees right in front of our room's doorstep. Unexpectedly, we even got an additional discount considering all the freebies we got.

The hotel offers comfortable and spacious rooms with wifi. But they also have computers in the lobby, which can be used for free. They also have a shelf as their mini library for book lovers, and also for book exchange. Cleanliness was observed in this hotel. Since we spent most of our time walking on Siem Reap's reddish, sometimes wet (because it was rainy at night), land, our footwear becomes really dirty. But they make sure that all grounds, even the rooms, are clean when you get back. A jasmine scent can be noticed every time, making the stay relaxing. The shower and tub were well-maintained. We had good sleep since it is far from the tourist center. Though far, tuk-tuk rides are free from 6am to 10pm. When we want to go out for walk or dinner, we just ask the driver to bring us at a certain place and pick us up on the same place after, for example, 3 hours. We got no problem with the tuk-tuks as they pickup on time and are easily available outside the hotel. They have good choices in their buffet breakfast, but the only downside is they are repetitive. Its good if you are staying for a short time, but tends to be boring when you are staying for a longer period. Service was excellent, as they attended to our needs immediately. They gave us welcome treats every day after our tour/walk, which I really appreciate. Receptionists were always ready to help us out with our queries, and even crack jokes. My family got to learn and understand Khmer culture more with their friendly staff.

My family and I enjoyed our stay in Gloria Angkor Hotel, and definitely staying here again when I get back to Siem Reap. I recommend this to my friends and all travelers :)

We chose this hotel for 3 nights over Christmas following the great reviews on TA and the fact that there was a pool so we could relax after all our temple viewing was a major plus point.

Sadly for us it was freezing, the air temperature wasn't great and the water never got warm :(

The hotel is far away from the center, impossible to walk there so you have to get tuk tuks. They offer them free at night and it's $2 in the day.
We had a great driver Mr Ly who was friendly and a safe driver.

When you check in they bring you delicious sweet potato and banana chips along with a lime drink and cold water. Everytime we ordered something we got the chips again which was a nice touch.

What was a bit unnerving and annoying was the constant shouts of hello, how are you etc everytime you came downstairs or went anywhere near reception. It was a bit OTT for us but I can see how people might like it.

The room was very nicely done out and clean. The bathroom was big enough with good water pressure and constant hot water. But the bath leaked so the floor was wet and we didn't get a bath mat or hand towels after the first day when the room was cleaned.

The tv had a few foreign language stations, the fridge was a nice touch and the safe worked well.

The free slippers though were dirty and pre used

Every afternoon we got a fruit basket and in the evening it was bed time stories, sweets and a film tv choice printed up. This often arrived after the films had started but it didn't bother us as we didn't watch them anyway.

What let them down big time was the breakfast - Very little choice and the same thing everyday.

The croissants (1 pp) and the little yogurt (1pp) which were brought to your table were delicious and it is a shame that we couldn't have had more of these.

Staff were non existant at breakfast and there was no clearing of plates so you had to stack everything yourself which didn't leave much room on a small table.

We paid $135 for our 3 night stay and it was too much for what we got in return compared to the $25 a night that we paid at the Angkor Pearl hotel the previous week.
