Le Meridien Angkor
Ranked #66 of 378 Hotels in Siem Reap
Reviewed 1 February 2010

I stayed here last July for three nights, using Starwood points, and was very pleased. It was a clean, spacious and convenient place to stay for a short visit to the temples at Angkor.

The hotel itself is large and quite nice. The service was excellent. We had a nice corner room, near the entrance to the pool area. The room itself was clean, spacious, and modern. The hotel seemed very empty when we were there, but that was a big plus for us, as it was very relaxing to return to a quiet hotel at the end of a long day at the temples.

The pool was also very nice and, again, quite empty. A great place to relax after a hot day walking about. The design of the pool was interesting, and the location of the pool bar extremely handy.

In terms of location, the hotel is quite close to the temples, so it is a quick tuk-tuk or van ride to the sights. It is, however, a little distance away from the center of town. This wasn't a problem for us, since it was so easy to just grab a tuk-tuk. Plus, we liked returning to the quieter hotel at the end of the day. However, the hotel does feel a bit far away from the action, so if you like being in the middle of things, it may not be for you.

All in all, a very good experience.

The hotel is on the Angkor Wat side of Siem Reap and, in relative terms, is fairly close to the temples. This means that it is not exactly next door to the centre of Siem Reap but is well within reasonable tuc-tuc range.
We arrived mid evening and the first impressions were good with a large, open and impressive foyer. Our room was quite large with a view over the gardens. The lighting was quite good as modern hotels go and, although the furniture was not overly plush it was more than adequte. The bathroom was also quite big with a stand-alone shower but a disappointing bath which was little more than a small tub, reminiscent of French hotels.
The gardens of the hotel were very pleasant and well maintained and are worth having a walk around. The bar was pleasant (but please stop inconsiderate people from poluting the atmosphere by smoking and spoiling it for the majority!) and was not inordinately expensive. My wife said that they did very good cocktails. Internet facilities are available in the Business Centre for a reasonable price (I've forgotten the exact amount.
Thhe breakfast was not outstanding with what I thought was a limited buffet and, considering the French influence, rather disappointing bread. We were on a package tour with a couple of evening meals and the first one which we received on arrival was extremely good. The second - which was served during a evening of local dancing - was less good but was about satisfactory. The dance performance was interesting and well performed. We had one lunch time snack from the bar which was described as "finger rolls" which were not only very tasty but very substantial and reasonably priced. They are worth trying.
The service from everyone whom we encountered was friendly, helpful and courteous and, in the case of the bar staff, charming.
To summarise, my experience was that the hotel is part of an international chain and well up to international standards in all aspects of service. I would recommend it as it might well be the best hotel in Siem Reap.

If you can afford it, go for Le Meridien Angkor. After a hot, wakabout at the Angkor temples and around the city, the best place to come back to and relax is Le Meridien Angkor.

The service was really impeccable. Staff were very friendly. Although we had hope the buffet breakfast would have a larger variety, we enjoyed our breakfast there! We had a sumptuous italian dinner at L'Angelo. However, if you are looking for authentic Khmer food, I would recommend the restaurants in the city itself.

The room was incredible. I think, by far, this is the best room we ever stayed in! We had service staff coming in to check if we needed to change towels or anything else & they would give us little treats.

The pool, although not for lap swimming, was a nice recreational place to hang out. You can see the gym & spa. And it's really beautiful, especially at night!

A thumbs up, definitely!

First class hotel with top service and huge rooms. Next to the big breakfast menu, the food in the restaurant and at the pool is fantastic. My personal recommendation from the menu at the pool: Try the warm pineapple pieces in maple sirup and ice cream! WOW!

Besides the good food at the hotel and the high standard of cleaniness and comfort, the hotel is ideal for all tourists coming to Siem Reap to visit the temples of Angkor. You are there in 10 minutes max. So, you can go there for the sunrise and be back at the hotel for breakfast :)

We stayed here for 6 nights during the week between Christmas and New Year. The children were always magically rejuvenated after we stepped into the cool and spacious lobby after spending the morning at the temples. We were upgraded to a deluxe room due to my SPG status, and this included complimentary drinks at the Naga Bar. Fantastic for a cold pick-me-up when we arrived back at the hotel at lunch time, hot and dusty and thirsty.
Breakfast was of a good variety and quality, and we especially liked the tiny shooters of ginger/carrot, celery/cucumber etc. Very refreshing. The child menu at the Angkor Cafe is good value, and the kids loved the items on it.
Complimentary bottled water and fresh fruit platters were provided in the room daily.
The rooms were large, bed was comfortable, and the aircon cold. However, the baby cot was the old fashioned sort, where the mattress is about 1m from the floor. I didn't dare to put my 2 year old in, as the cot sides looked low enough for her to manoeuvre over. I would say the cot is only suitable for babies who are still unable to stand (ie. <12 months old) .
The pool looked great, but we didn't swim after the first day. It was usually quite crowded in the afternoon (when it was the hottest!), and the water was a bit greasy from all the suntan lotion slathered on by everyone there. There were large expanses of lawn for the kids to burn off any excess energy, and the hotel felt like an oasis in the heat and dust of Siem Reap. While it is a 5 - 10min tuk tuk ride from the middle of town where the main drag of F&B places were, I actually liked the location being a little away from the noise and activity as we were travelling with our kids. If we didn't feel like taking the tuk tuk, there were (some) restaurants within walking distance or the hotel restaurants for dinner.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and we especially appreciate the cafe staff keeping the breakfast buffet open for another 20min for us, when we arrived only at closing time on one of the mornings due to an accident (we had gone out early for some dawn activities).
I would stay here if I visited Siem Reap again.

The 5 of us stayed 4 nights in Le Meridien. The hotel is truly 5 star in my opinion. The rooms are spacious and it looks nice and modern everywhere. Our room rates included daily breakfast. The breakfast buffet has an assortment of eastern (noodle soup) and western items, plus yummy local fruit and milk shakes. The check-in and check-out processes were smooth with no problem. The staff are always friendly and speak excellent English. We also attended an Aspara dance performance at the hotel which comes with a dinner buffet. The performance was excellent and it was one of the highlights of our trip.

We arranged a sun rise tour to see sunrise at Angkor Wat and it is $15 for a van, which we think is quite reasonable. We did not take tuk tuk from the hotel to Siem Reap, but instead, we took tuk tuk from Siem Reap back to the hotel multiple times. Every tuk tuk driver knows where Meridien is, and it costs us $3 for each trip.
