Chose this hotel after reading Tripadvisor and they offer good price for its class. I'm very fussy so I have probably sent them at least 5 emails before confirming the booking. As someone who's used to 5 star services around Asia (i.e big room, excellent&friendly service, free treatments etc), even Le Meridien Angkor is beyond our expectation. We arrived grumpy at the city due to lack of sleep, big hangover after all weekend party, and bad flight from Jakarta, Indonesia, only two days after 18 hours flight UK-Indonesia. But the hotel receptionists were so patient and by the time we were at the door we have smiled. The next whole three days were amazing. The hotel was superb we hardly got out of it at all. It is close to the city (10mts bicycle) and but not right at the city center so it is quiet and huge! The bathroom has shower jet and it is so nice having powerful shower after sweaty day from the tour. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and this is coming from someone who complains a lot like me!
It has traditional dance performance every several days and the show was amazing. We were caught by the general manager when we were trying to find the way to the show at the restaurant, and not only he took us to the restaurant and helped to check our names on the booking, but he also moved our table to a better position and then stopped to greet and talk other guests. The hotel also arranged the trip for us (they sent us the package info by email but we booked it just a day beforehand) and the guide has amazing knowledge - I'm familiar with Ramayana story as it's the same as Indonesia, I could easily find out if he doesn't tell the story correctly - our guide knows everything. The car was also clean and nice, with the AC working properly. Some complains about the price the hotel charges for the tour but we think it's reasonable.
The only complain was probably the bed was too comfy we were too lazy to try the hotel's gigantic pool!
Highly recommended! We'll definitely go back and stay again at the hotel.
