My friend and I just checked out of the Royal Empire this morning and it was absolutely lovely. We booked the place on using Agoda and received an outstanding deal! After taxes it was $36 per night including a delicious buffet breakfast. Since we booked online we didn't get to use he hotel's tuk tuk but that was alright since it was only $3 each way to the main city center of Siem Reap. We also rented a driver for all three days to see a number of temples, if you rent from the airport company directly it's much cheaper than the price the hotel offers for a driver. We had dinner one night in the restaurant and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. Although the breakfast had a heavy Asian influence (noodles, soups and rice dishes) we still had a large assortment of fruit, bacon, juice, coffee, vegetables, pastries and omelettes. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and always pleasant, they even upgraded our room to the deluxe!! My friend had a massage in the spa, which was $15 and he said it was okay, the setting of the spa is very pretty and calming as well as the pool. On a side note, there is a massive construction project going on behind the hotel, while it didn't bother us, they do start working fairly early in the AM and some of the rooms look directly into the construction site. Overall for the price, cleanliness and staff I would HIGHLY recommend !!
