“Lovely refuge when exploring the local temples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

We stayed here for five nights in December and loved it. All staff were incredibly friendly and accomodating. The lobby is very impressive and luxurious (in fact, it was so posh we thought we were in the wrong place, lol). We arrived after dark and the ride from the airport had been very short, but still they welcomed us with lovely refreshing cool towels and drinks. Speaking of the airport - it is only about 15 minutes which is so convenient but we did not hear a single plane the entire time we were there. So if you are worried about noise caused by the hotel being so close, worry no further; it won't be an issue.

We had an executive suite which was beautifull decorated. The bed was officially the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The bathrooms (yes...two) are large and have everything you need, and there are widescreen TVs in both the sitting room and the bedroom. The room was always immaculately clean and the hallways always had a beautiful lemongrass smell to them...not sure what the staff did there but it was so nice to come out to in the mornings!

A lot of tour buses use this hotel, as well as people travelling for business. Understandably 95% of people there are there to see the temples, as most people in Siem Reap are. I highly recommend this hotel because it's on the Angkor side of the city and is only about five to ten minutes drive to the main gate of the Archaeological Park. A tip for temple viewing: go out as early as you can, no later than 7am, then come back when it gets too hot at around 11am. Have a little swim or a nap and head out again at around 3pm until the sun sets. This hotel was a beautiful cool refuge to come back to during the heat of the day and those midday naps in the cool air conditioning of our room were delicious.

Speaking of heading out to the temples, the hotel can arrange a driver for you if you would like to get around by car, and the price is cheap. But if you want the real Cambodian experience hire a tuk tuk driver for the day. There are a group of drivers just to the left of the hotel who will drive you around all day for around $15. We used a driver by the name of Mr Chea and can highly recommend him. Also, don't be afraid to eat at some of the local restaurants in the street just near to the hotel. Be VERY careful crossing the road (it's busy and nobody has time to wait for you...lol) and go have a look at what they have to sell. We got a delicious meal of noodles and fried rice for two of us, plus glasses of iced tea each, for $4. And I'm sure the locals pay cheaper but I don't even care...we used to pay $6 for a meal for two plus drinks in Bali and we thought that was awesome, but this beats that. Many of the restauranteurs speak English and are very welcoming, plus it's a great way of mixing with the locals who will love to have a chat also.

The only area I would say where this hotel can improve would be the food...breakfast was very varied, but there was a lot of white breads and refined flour products. I would have liked to see more wholegrain things and mueslis. The bar in the lobby is nice but the cocktails are small (strong, but small). And although the cakes are nice they appear to not be fresh - I do understand it's difficult to keep things fresh in this heat but perhaps if the cakes were made on site it might be nicer. Just an idea.

On the whole, thanks Allson Angkor Paradise Hotel for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Front rooms are fine. Traffic noise was no issue.

I really enjoy staying at Angkor Paradise hotel during my holiday in Siem Reap it. I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel was great, staff very helpful and friendly, the room is nice and clean with hug swimming pool. This hotel was recommended by one of friend who used to stay there. The hotel is very near to town. It is easy to walk the night market and Pub street .Would love to stay again if I get a chance to come back to Siem Reap.

The Angkor Paradise is located on the major highway through Siem Reap. There is another hotel with the same name in town so remember to tell the Tuk-tuk or taxi driver it is on Highway #6. It is a huge property catering to the tour bus crowd but the service always feels individualized. The lobby is huge. Something out of an epic movie with two seating areas, a gift shop and restaurant/bar area. The air conditioning was cool (almost cold) and very welcomed.

The desk staff was prompt and efficient. Though there was the obligatory "Please have a seat." while they looked up the reservation and made certain the room was ready for occupancy. A cool towel and drink were offered while I waited.

The room I had one of those plastic keys with all the holes in it and I had to remember to double check that it was seated well in the lock, otherwise the door would not open. The electricity and air conditioning were inserting a plastic do-dad into it's holder by the door. This was attached to the key, so there was no way to leave the room for a short time and leave the a/c running for your return. The air conditioning did have a hard time keeping up. Eventually it would cool the room but when returning from an outing it did take a few minutes to get the room close to what I found comfortable.

My room was large and appointed with what you would expect. In room safe, mini bar, coffee and tea service with hot water kettle, hair dryer, soaps and shampoo along with comb and toothbrush. The bed was a King and had four weights of pillows on it. A nice seating area as well as a desk and a balcony overlooking the huge pool. The bed was, shall we say, very firm but after a day of climbing temples I didn't notice it.

The bathroom was clean with enough towels and wash cloths to outfit a small store. A tub and a walk in shower along with sink and toilet. No complaints. The hot water could have been a little hotter, but it was always there and plentiful.

Breakfast was included in the price of the room. An egg and noodle station in the back. Meats, carbs, breads, juices (the orange juice was Tang). Fresh vegetables and fruits. Both Western and Asian tastes provided for. The staff was there and if you needed them would assist you, otherwise you were left to your own devices. One thing that did bother me was the table linen. A white table cloth covered with a red offset table cloth. The red cloth always seemed to be stained ( I stayed several nights). I am not certain if this was from poor housekeeping by the restaurant or by my day's previous breakfast brethren being pigs. Either way it bothered me.

I never ate a dinner at the hotel. I did have a Club sandwich and a beer in the bar one afternoon and found it fine and filling with a fare of $6. No complaints there.

The pool was huge with a shallow end for wading and a deeper end for swimming as well as a smaller pool attached for the children. The hours seemed to be whenever people started using it until around ten p.m.

The staff at the front desk and bar were outstanding. Ms.Ing on the front desk especially. The restaurant staff ran from great (the egg station) to so-so (the rest of the staff). But there is one caveat I have to say - I only ate breakfast there. Perhaps when they weren't swamped with the morning horde of tourists service improved.

I found the hotel comfortable enough to return a time or two on this trip. The cost of the room was reasonable, the room more than adequate, filled with all the necessary things and the staff doing their best for you.

Room Tip: The fourth (4th) floor has a small roof over the balcony which helps keep some of the direct sun/hea...

We stayed here for 3 nights and found everything great especially the service. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The hotel had great facilities and though it's not right in town it's not that far to walk or Tuk Tuk it. Would stay there again.

This hotel is a short tuk tuk ride to Pub Street. The rooms are old but still very clean and large. We ate by the pool a few times and the meals were good enough. If staying in Siem Reap this is a goood place to stay, the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Ask for a room with a pool view rather than a street view.

Stayed there for 1 night only instead of originally planned 2 (damn snowstorm). The money were not returned due to booking policy (or my travel agent laziness) but we got free upgrade from deluxe to executive suite (2 rooms and 2 toilets!), which was sweet. The rooms were very big. Carved wooden bed (and all other furniture) was crazy cool! One bedside tables had built-in control panel for lights (for both rooms). It looked as came from 70-es and I did't figure out how to switch off some light in living room so resorted to unplugging. As additional advantage the master switch in the suite was disabled so we had a luxury to leave the room with AC on! Very nice feature in >100F heat! The pool was very good, however it could be crowded sometimes. Reception area and restaurant are big and nice. Staff welcomed us with cold fresh juice and cold refreshing towels.
The only thing I didn't like was the breakfast. Selection and quantity was very good, better than I expected but quality of food/tastefulness was way below expectations. Also there was no desert available (only toasts with jam and some fruits).
The hotel could be a bit far from city but I would not recommend to walk there in the sunlight because of the heat. Take a tuk-tuk.

Room Tip: Some people complained about noise in the rooms facing street - I would not agree. Additionally the...

We've spent seven nights at Angkor Paradise and the hotel is very good. Efficient service, big pool (although sometimes busy and not that clean), quiet and spacious rooms with a lot of light, small terrace, good air con, great bad, TV and an amazing shower in a big bathroom.
Restaurant is ok, good food and not very expensive. Wifi is free and was working.
Overall the hotel is a little bit tired, the gym, for example, is not well maintained - most of equipment aren't working properly.
Breakfast is very early in my opinion (from 6 to 9:30), even considering that people will leave early to angkor. also, taxi and tuk tuk prices at the hotel are higher than average, but I guess it saves you the stress of bargaining with drivers. anyway, we've asked them to help us to talk to the taxi driver who brought us to siem reap (he doesn't speak english) and the guy faked that he had called our driver - he called a friend of him and charged 10 dollars additional.
But his friend did the service, it was allright considering that siem reap is full of scams.
the hotel is a big one, with lots of business meetings and tours coming and going, especially of old people, koreans and chinese. also, at night, you can see some girls walking around the rooms.
finally, the hotel is not very close of the central part of the city, so be prepared to take a tuk tuk, a bike or walk 30 min.
all in all, considering the price we've paid and the service, room and pool area, I recommend it.
