Community Residence Siem Reap
Ranked #137 of 373 Hotels in Siem Reap
Reviewed 19 February 2013

After a tiring day visiting temples, this is the perfect place to come back to and relax. There's a large pool, and because there aren't many rooms, there's no problem gettting a lounger.
The rooms are spacious and there's a superb shower in the bathroom. As well as satellite TV and tea & coffee making facilities, a laptop is provided for your use.
You choose the time and content of your breakfast the night before, but whatever you choose will be pretty good. The restaurant stays open until the early evening.
A free tuk tuk can be provided to take you to your evening restaurant. You do need to keep a hotel card with you so that the driver can find the place when you return. The return journey usually cost $3.
The praises of the staff here are not over the top. They are indeed incredibly helpful, and always friendly and welcoming.
This would have to be one of our favourite hotels we've stayed in around the world - and we've stayed in some pretty good ones.

We left our decision too late to stay at the Journeys Within Hotel, but we did utilize their services to organize a 3 day tour of Siem Reap and all I can say is thank you very much. We had our own tour guide and driver and this enabled us to take in a lot more than we would have seen on our own, or as part of a bigger tour group. We traveled with two young children and they are still talking about the experience - best holiday we have been on. Spent two days touring round temples, and one day visiting a local village and then traveling out to the floating village on Tonle Sap.

Real life Temple Run, and boat rides, how can kids not be amused.

If you are traveling to Siem Reap and are looking for an individual tour, I can highly recommend Journeys Within - you won't be disappointed.

We did have lunch on our first day at this Hotel and the food was excellent. Pity we couldn't have stayed here as I think we would have enjoyed it. Nice pool, play ground and kids club for the kids. And friends who recommended Journeys Within to us enjoyed their time their.

Room Tip: Book early. We left it too late to be able to stay at the hotel!!!!!!

This is a wonderful place. The staff are devoted to service. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Unlike many hotels in the area the drinking water is free. The bath has my favorite -- a rain forest shower head. But really best of all -- the place isn't tourist overrun. Ater a day in the crowds at Angkor it is just grewt to find a quiet oasis of calm. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Get the Srey room with the veranda overlooking the pool.

Just the right size for a boutique hotel : 14 rooms and one family suite spread over 5 bungalows all looking out on the nice sized pool in the midst of a well maintained garden. Friendly and informative welcome by management (owner?). Smiling and very helpful staff. The rooms are spacious and well decorated in an elegant and spartan yet tropical and comfortable style. Good breakfast and possibility of getting lunch or dinner in the breakfast room, although JW claims to be only a bed and breakfast.

Best of all : a host of nice little attentions which made our stay a delight. A welcoming present of scarves laid out on the bed, a laptop available in the room, a complimentary straw hat next to the rolled towel (complete with hibiscus flower) on each unused poolside deck chair, free tuk-tuks into town and back from 6 to 9 pm, excellent recommendations of tour guides and city restaurants, flawless WiFi, glasses of ice water brought upon daily arrival at poolside, and more ...

There is even a free laundry service, although I would not mind paying if it meant decent ironing of the clothes....

Overall, a warm and cosy feel of subdued luxury which is the essence of true bliss for the well-seasoned traveller.

Incredibly accommodating staff. Lovely poolside room. Everything that you want, they'll organise - trips, restaurant bookings. Good food whenever you want it - drinks by the pool - what's not to like?

I’m a procrastinator so writing my review now after staying at the hotel back in May 2012.
Journey’s Within Hotel exceeded my expectations in every way possible. Our stay at the hotel made our vacation. After sightseeing with two young kids during oppressive heat the hotel was a calm oasis to return to. The rooms were extremely clean, spacious, stylish and beds were super comfortable. I loved the art work in our room so much that we went into town to buy a few prints for our home. They even had toys at the pool for the kids to play with.
The staff was very helpful, friendly and really made us feel at home. The information book in our room included the names, pictures and other information about the staff that made it feel like it really was a family that you were staying with. So many personal touches that made our stay so amazing.
My kids are extremely picky eaters who usually live on buttered white rice and water when we vacation in Asia but they loved the food at the hotel. My husband and I thought the food was amazing - very fresh, extremely tasty and better than most restaurants that we eat at. Was really pleased since we knew we would be at the hotel during lunch while we spent the hottest part of the day longing around the pool. We even stayed for dinner most nights just because it was so tasty. Would go back just for the crepes and chocolate-peanut butter milkshakes alone.

Room Tip: If you have children, the adjoining rooms are worth it.

We booked our stay and travel through Journey's Within from the United States and it was first class all the way. Our rom overlooked the pool area which was in a large garden set back from the road. The room was very large and had a king bed and shower with lots of hot water. Not only was there Wi Fi bit a laptop in the room. Breakfast was very good as was lunch. They provide transportation to town for dinner or we could have eaten on site. Staff was very helpful and found my luggage in Bangkok after a US airline had failed to tranfer it to our Asian connection in LA.
