“Beautiful hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

This is a gorgeous hotel and the service is excellent. I stayed over New Years and they put together an incredible dinner and show and the decorations in the pool area were breathtaking. The food in the hotel is also exceptional and everything I ate was memorable. The only downsides are the location, it is a bit out of Siam Reap, which can be a good thing as well. And there seemed to be an odd thing with the electrics when the air came on all the lights would flash - this even happened in the middle of the night when you were sleeping and you lights had been off. The place is wonderful and a real experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool

Great hotel with a quality vintage touch to it. Service very good with a good friendly concierge . Rooms are great, poolside great, although could have more deck chairs as they get filled too easily. Shower heads need to be changed as clogged up, as well as the not so consistent water temperatures , ie hot to cold and back.
No complaints at all except value for money I am not sure about. Everything you pay for is about 3x the price it is outside in other restaurants and bars. So be prepared.
Also if you need a guide and car, best get it away from hotel as the usual 3x price will appear !
Otherwise the best place to stay

Room Tip: Lower ground rooms which are walking distance to pool.

Attention to detail is what you're paying for in a place like this and you definitely get it. The whole hotel operation from the door staff to the rooms and dining are just done so right, and you feel pampered like you've stepped back in time to a golden age.
Breakfast was a wonderful experience in a beautifully appointed room.
The room rates were surprisingly cheap.

Well I have been to some beautiful hotel in my travels but this grand old lady takes the cake! Such care has been taken to keep this beautiful old hotel in pristine condition. The staff are second to none with smiling faces and happy attitude. Anything you require is taken care of straight away and with a smile. Beautiful grounds and the pool,is just magic. They have an Asian Buffet every night and Monday, Wednesday and Friday there is a dance show of the Cambodian style dance it's wonderful!
The location is great only 2klm by foot or 5 min by tuck tuck which is $1 per person I to Pub Street. This is where all the restaurants, markets and great Cambodian made clothing boutiques are found. Haggle for a food price in the market I found if you go 1/2 of what they say and then walk away you will get what you want.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3302 overlooking the pool and with a verandah to sit out in. Twin king beds aweso...

Thank you very much for your heartwarming compliments. I am glad to hear that the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor has taken the forefront among all the historic hotels that you’ve been to. Our location is indeed one of the hotel features we are truly proud of and I hope that you had enjoyed the walks on our grounds including the beautifully-manicured Royal Gardens.

I hope that you would be able to return in the future and experience once again the grandeur of the Raffles Grand Hotel and of the temples of Angkor.

After living for a week in the hotel, you get a sense that was transported back in time, in the days when valued human relationships.
The hotel staff is friendly, always willing to help with everything.
The hotel was built in the early 20th century in excellent condition. You can feel in the colonial era, while enjoying all the benefits of modern civilization.
Separately, we must mention the hotel's chef. A feeling that you're in one of the best restaurants in France.
Excellent organization the events. Many thanks to event manager - Youern Chantrea.
Thanks to an excellent Butler, we felt at home.
The only pity is that the tale ends ...
Everyone who wants to get to the time in fairy tale, enjoy the majestic Ankgor while living in paradise, we recommend that you visit this hotel.

First, I want to say that the hotel & staff in it's self is wonderful. The service impeccable, the restaurant was very good too and the location good. However, the room was not that great. Especially the bed, was very poor quality. The bathroom was so tiny, it was really hard to deal with.

Hotel built back in 1927 in the colonial style but now the large rooms upgraded to current standards. Only there for two nights as part of a package so we were not able to check out everything in the hotel especially the swimming pool, this was massive (33 mteres I believe) set in nice gardens, would have like to try it but did not have the time. The hotel really give you an idea of how the rich would have lived back in the pre WW2 days and although they would not have had the airconditioning back in those days the whole place was set up to catch every breeze. A very nice and comfotable place to stay and be pampered.
