It's hard to descibe the feeling of coming 'home' to such luxury in such an incredibly poor town, but the Sofitel really was gorgeous!
The rooms are spread out across huge gardens and overlook a beautiful, serene lake. Decorated in heritage style, our deluxe room was spacious, incredibly clean and absolutely beautiful - with an ultra comfy king-sized bed! Loved the big balcony and the huge armchair just made for relaxing. Staff did a wonderful job of cleaning and we enjoyed the fresh fruit and flowers.
We ate at the restaurant one night and had a magnificent buffet, and breakfast was equally elaborate and delicious. The staff were briilliant too, very friendly and happy to chat about their lovely country. Beautiful pool area perfect for a refreshing dip or some quality reading and relaxing in the sun.
The hotel's location was reasonable - about 5 minutes from the main town (including food and markets) by Tuk Tuk (about $2USD for a trip in or out). About the same distance to the entrance to the main temple area.
The only issues we had related to noise - on the first night a function in the hotel's bar was still pumping well after midnight, making sleep impossible. Then on night three the hotel booked a group of students into the room adjoining ours (those adjoining doors just can't block out crazy screaming and laughter!).
But these were minor issues, and overall this is everything a Sofitel should be, We absolutely loved the hotel and gorgeous Siem Reap. We'd certainly stay here again!
