Sokha Angkor is placed conveniently in Siem Reap- not far away from the Angkor archaeological park and also the local market and other attractions. The hotel is quite luxurious and clean. The staff are friendly, helpful and able to understand your requests in English very well.
The room was large though my room only looked into other rooms and the verandah surrounding the lobby so had to keep the curtains closed day and night.
The swimming pool is quite nice and large. You can spend quite a few hours lounging around.
One big advantage is that the hotel is authorised to sell tickets for the archaeological park so you can skip the queues and get a head start.
The breakfast buffet is ok- not many choices for vegetarians (but this is prevalent in South East Asia so I won't complain). It tends to get crowded from 6.30 until about 8.30 when all the tourists are heading out so the place has quite a bustle about it.
The night market is just about 10 minutes walk away from the hotel. And tuk-tuks are always available even if you don't feel like walking.
I had a good experience overall- few minor hiccups- even though I arrived at 1.30 (quite close to the published check-in time of 2pm) I was told my room was not ready and allowed to check-in only at 2.15. My dinner tray (when I ordered in-room service) was not cleared even after housekeeping came and cleaned the room the following day which was a bit annoying- but relatively minor problems.
On the whole the Sokha Angkor is a great place to stay.
