The best hotel in Siem Reap. As this was our first trip to Siem Reap, we relied on our travel agent to make recommendations and then looked at Tripadvisor before making our final choice of hotel and are so happy that we choose this hotel. La Residence d'Angkor is a true gem and service starts the moment you arrive at the airport where you do not only get the usual bottled water and a cold towel, we were also offered a selection of cold drinks and macaroons once we got into the car and this level of service was evident throughout our stay. Employees called us by name, offered to arrange tours with an excellent guide, short massages at the pool enticed us into the most amazing spa you can imagine where we were treated like royalty. Our pool side room was large and the bathroom had a bathtub I wish I could transfer to my home for those long warm baths I love in winter..... though here it was way too hot for a bath and we only used the shower. At the Martini lounge we met Sovann (spelling?) who always welcomed us as if we were the only people in the hotel. He told us the story of the little green plants they have in the restaurant and lounge - they actually grow rice in small pots to show city people like us what it looks like and it is replaced every 5 days. All in all the attention to detail is what made this such a special place to be. We will recommend it to our agent and friends.
