We stayed for 3 days in Siem Reap, over New Year, primarily to see the Temples, which are breath-taking, again hire your own Tuk Tuk for the day ($25/30) & let him take you around. The Howard is nearly at the end of the Hotel Strip past most of the other properties, modern, great pool & very good staff. The bedrooms are either road, garden/pool or side view, so be mindful of the location of your room, it could make or break your stay! The rooms are large but not overly luxurious, the bathrooms have an odd shower & a shower bath, a bit gimmicky, but all worked and spotless.
The only comment was that there was actually no one there, at the pool, in the bar or at breakfast, so this was very odd but the service was excellent, I suppose that there was little competition for their time.
Breakfast was a dissappointment, food was barely warm, stale bread & undrinkable coffee, but all in all, I would not let this put you off & I would recommend.More
