As per our review of the Pullman Hotel in Hanoi, we stayed here in January as part of a tour of Vietnam and Cambodia and it was by far the best of the hotels we stayed at in terms of accommodation and facilities. Our bedroom was on the second floor (I think there were only 4 or 5 floors) directly overlooking the outdoor pool area, which was beautifully lit up at night, and had a lovely terrace with table and chairs. The outdoor pool was quiet and attractively laid out with plenty of sun loungers and parasols, waiter service for drinks and snacks, abundant towels and good facilities for showering/changing. After days of getting up at the crack of dawn to tour etc it was so nice to have a chance to spend a relaxing afternoon in such pleasant surroundings.
The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the centre of Siem Reap (where there is a fabulous market selling everything you can think of and bartering is an absolute must) but there were plenty of rickshaws outside the hotel charging around 2 dollars if you fancied being ridden in. We walked in mostly as it was so easy (once you'd got the hang of crossing the roads and manoeuvring the traffic) but took a rickshaw into the restaurant area (Pub Street) in the evening and back to the hotel again afterwards.
Breakfasts in the buffet restaurant offered loads of choices plus there were other eating areas that we didn't have chance to try although we did have lunch in the bar area near the pool. We were in a rush as we had about 40 mins before we had to leave for another excursion and we ordered salad/burgers, drink and asked if it could be quick. It was, the food and the service was good. Didn't try the spa but would definitely recommend this hotel.
