“You won't be disappointed - especially the Martini Bar!”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

As someone who lives and works locally, I can easily say this is one of the best venues in Siem Reap, consistently over-delivering in style, flavour and service. I especially enjoy being able to chill out in the elegant Martini Bar with its airy decor, abundance of fans (!), fast wifi and a backup generator (which is very important as SR often loses electricity for a few hours). Martini Bar's food is delightful: I often snack on one of the bar's reasonably-priced pizzas with a great base (hard to find in SR) and high quality cheese, or if I'm feeling more healthy I will eat the delicious lamb koftas - seasoned beautifully and served with a light and fresh-tasting couscous with fresh lime. If feeling decadent, there is an extensive cocktail and wine menu, all delivered with faultless service and a smile. As an aside, I've also eaten in the main Circle restaurant on special occasions and was blown away by the carefully crafted worldly modern tastes - this is very much east meets west, often with mind-blowing results - the chef is obviously a genius. Keep up the good work!

This hotel is beautiful. Staff super helpful. Can't do enough for you. Lots of little touches (candle lights around pool at dusk, sheets turned down before bed, incense lit and dim lights so you can see at night in your room) made this stay. Great variety for breakfast, western and traditional. Worth the money

Room Tip: Pool view is great. Lots of vegetation, so to save bugs etc getting in, leave patio doors on to balc...

We've just come back after staying for 3 nights. If you want a great hotel close to all the main temples ( particularly Angor Wat) this is the place. 10 mins from the airport ideal. Built in a colonial style surrounded by tropical plants. The pool is large and secluded and the rooms well kept and equipped. The staff all speak limited English and the hotel manger Jacque who is French cannot do enough for you. Very tranquil and cool after a long day hiking around temples. I would definitely go again and give it 5 stars.

We spent three wonderful days at La Residence d'Angkor in mid April. The service we received was impecable...not only did the staff go above and beyond, they all knew our names based on sight, knew our itinerary and we full of very helpful information. The airport pickup was prompt, with cold towels and water waiting for us in the car. The front desk was able to make suggestions, help arrange reservations and transportation to some delicious, authentic Cambodian restaurants. They also were very accommodating with our request for a late checkout, as our flight didn't depart Siem Reap until 7:30, they allowed us to checkout at 5:00 pm. The tour we booked through the hotel was also nice, albeit rather pricy. We decided to only do one day of guided tours and then hired a tuk-tuk for the other two days. The pool was beautiful and refreshing, and the grounds overall were stunning. Food: we enjoyed the breakfast, the baked goods were particularly tasty, although I personally didn't realize there was hot food available outside until the last day. We also enjoyed happy hour at the upstairs bar (2-for-1) but we did not usually have dinner at the hotel, preferring instead to find more local spots. Overall a truly lovely experience.

The room was clean and beautiful, the bed was quite comfortable, and I looked forward to the turndown service every night with a delicious treat left for us each night (tiramisu, macaroons, green tea donughts..all delicious!)

Room Tip: I do want to correct some mis-information that I have read in previous posts, contrary to what some...

Although a good hotel with all the facilities you would expect we found irritations that detracted from our stay. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, but in our room the shower didn't always work ( except when you called the engineer and it was perfect when he turned it on). The catering was off the mark eating outside, even in a hot climate, needs prompt service and it wasn't.

Upsides are the friendly, helpful staff, the spa, which is excellent, and if you are really lucky you will be greeted by the charming general manager.

This hotel is truly 5 star and is located very close to the markets of Siem Reap.
Airport pickup was on time and very comfortable van.
We had a pool side room and facilities were excellent.
Staff were always very friendly and welcoming and looking to please.
Meals at both restaurants were very good and great buffet selection for breakfast.
Highly recommend this hotel.

We have eaten here 3 times, first in October 2012 and then twice again in January of this year.
This review is for the environment, and restaurant only.
Its a real ‘treat yourself’ menu, with some thought provoking choices, both Asian and western, and easy alternatives for the youngsters, with a ‘to die for’ chocolate fondue that will have them begging to return!
The dishes we’ve had have all been excellent, and the wine superb. If you get confused with choices the senior staff in here are fantastic help,
Check out when their cultural dance evenings are too, and sit outside for a great view,.
I love the feel of this establishment; it has a great ambience, in a very charming and exciting way, blending the interior with the beautifully kept surroundings is exquisite.
It is rather pricy, but I have come to expect that in Asian hotels at this star level,
Hope to stay here one day. We shall certainly continue to visit the restaurant on our future visits.
