We stayed in Nov. 2013 at Petit Villa (the sister hotel from petit temple, 50m next to it) and had the chance to visit Petit Temple when it was still under construction. The owner of the two hotels explained me that time, that its his idea that every customer just feels at home when he enters the hotel.
Now we are back in Siem Reap. Because the people in cambodia are so nice and friendly, because the country is so beautiful, because it felt like a mistake when we left last time so early and that we have not spent more time in Cambodia.
Because we had so good experiences with petit villa we decided to stay this time at petit villa and petit temple.
The hotel is really nice, very new (opened December 2013). If you ask me if i would recommend the hotel, I would say to you: I went back to the hotel just 2 month later, so I recommended it actually to me personally!
The hotel is new so is a part of the hotel crew. Not every process is still perfect, but thats normal in a new hotel. But when you are there, you feel from the very first minute that the people really try to make your stay at their hotel the best experience! So this is absolutely not a problem.
When I read some comments from other customers complaining that somebody has stolen money???? I can NOT believe that. We had a lot of close contacts to the people working in this hotel and I am sure they would never take something from you!
When I will go back to Siem Reap maybe in 2 years or so, I will definitely go again to petit temple or petit villa if possible. I can just recommend this hotel so much.
And yes, there is a rat. I saw it. They try to kill it. But as you know, this animal is quite smart. And the rat lives not in the hotel (what I would understand if it decides to stay there ;-), it is from outside, a non paying customer! And its a nice one. Maybe the hotel crew could buy a cat, so no more rats anymore.
The rooms are really nice, in Angkor Wat style. And the breakfast is just the best you will get on your whole asian trip.
So let summarize in a nutshell. If you go to Siem Reap, book some nights (1-3) at petit temple or petit villa, and decide then. I am sure you will do everything to stay at these hotels during your whole stay in Siem Reap!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- PETIT TEMPLE, HOTEL IN SIEM REAP Petit Temple Suite & Spa reveals the Temple concept of truly man-made masterpiece inspired and influenced by the great Kings of Khmer Empire who set a milestone of buildings for thousand years of reputation as stand-still today the temple of Angkor Wat. It provides a complete sense of hideaway for honeymooner, family retreat, or for any special occasion. It is heart and soul of the inner-beauty lady who lays down her famine feel/look of putting special attention from the Escape Hall, surrounded by moat filled with fishes, to welcome residents as a home away from home gesture. Each distinguished guest walks through a little bridge-way to the suite room; they shall find themselves on a cause-way to the great temple of Angkor where they shall be exploring its history. ... more less
