“Great stay, Great staff”
Reviewed 19 March 2010

For my second visit to Siem Reap I choose to stay at The Sokha Angkor and could not have been happier with my decision. Hotel is well situated, the rooms are comfortable and the staff is terrific. Breakfast was tasty although the lunch buffet was just ok. The pool is very inviting after a long hot day temple hopping. The hotel is located a walk able distance to Pub Street and several markets along the way. The location is in the same area as some other well known (and higher priced) alternatives. For those of you who don‘t want to walk, a $2.00 tuk-tuk ride will get you just about anywhere. Once again, Great Staff, Good Location, Awesome Swimming Pool, and Comfortable Room.

Oh and one last thing, you can buy your temple passes at the hotel after 4:30 pm instead of the main ticket area.

Spent four nights in the care of the delightful staff at Sokha where we were treated with the utmost friendliness and courtesy. We had a very comfortable, spacious room complete with oversized bath and great shower. The restaurants at Sokha serve a variety of tasty food beautifully presented including a superb Japanese eatery. The hotel has an excellent spa facility offering a wide range of treatments for both male and female at reasonable prices and there is a lovely pool and a gym also. The Irish Pub is only let down by the lack of patrons in what is a very comfortable and reasonably priced bar.

I have been wanting to visit Cambodia for a long time. And finally this year, I decided to feed my wanderlust. After sourcing the Internet, I booked the Sokha Angkor based on price, facilities and proximity to the Angkor Wat.

The booking, confirmation, arrangements for transports and early check-in processes were done online seamlessly. I was served by Mr Rorn Sormrarch promptly and efficiently. No requests were turned down. It was sterling service standards.

When we arrived at the hotel, it offers nice and posh accommodation, with a fantastic spa and reasonably good restaurant for our daily breakfasts. We didn't manage to try out the salt pool due to time factor and the fact that the hotel was booked for the SEACEN meeting during our stay. Despite the ad-hoc increased security checks, it didn't really pose a problem (in fact, we felt even safer with VIPs and the heightened security in the hotel!)

The room was adequately big enough for three of us, and definitely comfortable. The beds and pillows were just right - not too hard or soft. It was perfect and clean. All amenities like shampoos, dryer, and customary beverages were also available. The managers, receptionists, doormen and all hotel staff were courteous and downright accommodating.

The hotel was about 15 minutes away from the Angkor Wat by tuk-tuks. And during our stay, we had the best, smiliest and friendly tuk-tuk driver based at the hotel, Mr Kearn (we called him Mr Lucky 11). He took us everywhere in our 3 days there and waited for us without fail. It was only when his daughter was sick and needed to visit the hospital that we bade him goodbye, not before giving him a sum of money for the doctor's fees.

Our Chinese-speaking Angkor guide also deserved a glowing praise here. Knowledgeable, accommodating and friendly, he obviously worked extra hard for his money. He knows the temples like the back of his hand, even when we "tested" him on the histories based on our guide books. In fact, he was so positive towards bettering his life we sponsored him in his computer course that he wished to take up for a long time.

In short, this had been the most thought-provoking trip for me. It laid bare the reality of life for the general Cambodians. Despite the hardships, their optimism towards life remains. To return to the sanctuary of Sokha Angkor after our visits reminded how fortunate and privileged we are.

This is one hotel I could highly recommend for those who are looking for an oasis amidst the vibrant hub-bub of this Cambodian city. In a word - excellent.

We visited Siem Reap for 5 days (from the 13th to 17th Feb'2010) and our stay at the Sokha was very satisfying.

We had booked online & called the Hotel in advance to request for an early check-in (at 10am). Not only did they agree, but upon arrival, we were checked-in in flat 10 minutes.

The service throughout was superb - always with a smile.
The Rooms are big, Clean and tastefully done up.

The Hotel is very well located - just 15 minutes from the Airport and barely 5 minutes (by the ubiquitous 'Tuk-Tuk') to the main city center (the Old Market & Night market).

The Buffet Breakfast has a fairly large spread, and the menu does change everyday
We didn't get to eat at their other restaurants - but they do have a large no. of options.

All in all, an excellant hotel - definitely value for money..

We had an excellent stay at this hotel, it is ideally situated to visit the temples and also to walk around Siem Reap. It is a lovely peaceful place to return to after a long days sightseeing. We had dinner at the hotel and the food and service were excellent. The temples at Angkor are amazing and the Tonle Sap lake is well worth a visit, very interesting. We had not arranged any transport beforehand and picked up a taxi at the airport and we then hired him for our stay. He was excellent, spoke very good English and took us wherever we wanted, We can recommend him, his name is Savy,(email- [--] and phone no [--]).He also arranged a guidefor some of our time, his name is Sokha (email- [--] and phone no [--]). Both were really nice guys working hard to make a living and made our stay very enjoyable.

Stayed here for 3 nights end of Jan must say I was impressed by the hotel & the staff hotel first the fittings in the room are all top quality nice size bed a firm but OK and the bathroom was nice but they should shoot the person who picked the actual shower head.
The staff were excellent couldn't do enough for you like most top hotels everything in dollars and that's a reason to overcharge a coke was more expensive than a beer!
The situation is great about 5/10 minutes walk to the main downtown pubs & dining area or about 2 minutes in a Tuk Tuk for $2 for 2 of us.
Overall if you are doing Angkor Wat a great place to stay convenient for everything nice staff.
