After hours of reading various comments and price checking for Siem Reap hotels, in the beginning I wanted to book the Pavillon Orient. But they did not reply my email reservation ( 2 times) aside from the automated ones and when I called them long distance, the reception person gave me his manager number to call and there was no answer when I tried to call the manager. Thus making me lost my confidence in this hotel. On second thought, since we were going to Siem Reap during the rainy season, we would probably spend more time in the hotel, so finally I opted for a 5 star hotel with bigger rooms and good reviews and of course with promotional prices :P So we chose the Sokha Angkor Hotel.
Stayed 3 nights in this hotel last week. Location is good and there is supermarket nearby should you need any extra amenities. In my opinion, if you go in the summer months (feb to oct) it is too hot to walk anywhere during the day and you will need a air con cab. As long as you have a nice room in a nice hotel, location does not matter that much. Afterall, a air con car with a driver is only US$ 25 a day ( practically almost 16 hrs a day ) which is practically nothing comparing to american or european standard.
Room is very spacious although not with fancy decoration. Free wifi service in the room but you have to find the "perfect spot" (in our room is close to the window next to the bed) to have it worked. Otherwise, they have a business centre with few computers available for hotel guests and are free of charge. They have nice pool and a small gym. Breakfast is included and good choices of food. Their Japanese restaurant is just 'OK'.
Service is good and hotel staff are helpful.
My friend and I were happy with the hotel and we considered we had a good deal since we paid only less than US$400 for 3 nights with pool view ( hotel promotion - stay 3 nights pay 2 nights).
If you want modern luxurious hotel, this one is not for you. But if you are looking for good reasonable hotel with clean , spacious room, I highly recommend this hotel.
