“A building site!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour package; we would not recommend this hotel for your stay in Siam Reap. We have stayed at far better 3 star hotels in Asia.

This hotel is fine but it needs to be mentioned that is RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO A BUILDING SITE! I am amazed that previous reviewers have described this hotel as peaceful. The construction work is extremely noisy in the early morning, and throughout the day if you venture out to the pool area; from where it is completely overlooked and noisy.

The breakfasts are poor and by 9am stocks run very low. International phone calls are also very expensive.

The rooms are roomy and the reception were always polite. The location is also good.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

This is a good hotel, centrally located, with an excellent supermarket across the road. The rooms are large and they have a nice, peaceful swimming pool area with a good pool-side restaurant. We had an excellent foot massage a few doors away from the hotel at 9.30 p.m. not expensive, and much needed after a heavy day of sight-seeing .

This is a nice hotel in an excellent location - a ten minute walk from the popular Pub Street with its many restaurants and market nearby. The hotel has a beautiful garden in the spa beside the pool and the rooms are nice and clean -ours have a walkout to the balcony. Staff is friendly and honest. I left my iPod in the hotel safe and they were able to find it for me. I am just now waiting for them to find a courier to send it back. The office manager is very helpful. I'll let you know how this turns out.
Breakfast is excellent - you can pick your own noodles and accompanying meat and veggies- they will cook it quickly for you. Lots of dragon fruit, papaya and melons.

This hotel was allocated by our travel company and we were happy with their choice. The entrance and rooms are abundant with dark wood, but the staff are brightly dressed to compensate. We had a front room but there is no problem with street noise at all. The bedroom was a good size, very clean, with a large very comfortable bed. The pool and surroundings were comfortable and great to relax by and in after a very early start for the temples. Staff attentive without being overly so.

Room Tip: I don't think it matters, though there is some building work at the rear at this time.

The Somadevi hotel is a rather upscale place for a reasonable rate. The rooms, pool, breakfast, and facilities are great. Location is within walking distance of almost all points of interest. Drinks and laundry are overpriced, can buy new clothes for the price they wanted to wash them, but there is a laundry around the corner. Would definetly stay here again, but eat and drink elsewhere.

Room Tip: We had a superior double a little further away from the pool. Quiter great balconywith chaise lounge...

Staff very polite. Had emailed about the need for an extra bed. In a week, no response. Called. Confirmed arrival - bed not ready. When we got into the room, they brought quite stained mattress and dressed it up.

As we are on cleaning, be prepared that there are no "wet floor" signs posted when they clean around the pool or mop the floor, so proceed with caution. However, the place is kept quite clear, except for carpet on stairways that has quite a few greasy stains (carpet spotter would do wonders here).

Mattresses of very good comfort, so rest you will, except - be pre-warned - there is a construction next door that starts at 7 -7:15 am, so you will start your day with them. If not, hotel's staff will wake you up by removing tables from last night dinner at the pool and setting up heavy, wooden lounge chairs (dragging them around) -all starting at about 6:45 am.

Also, be pre-warned about great acoustics in the building. You will hear your next room neighbour farting too - no kidding!

Breakfast (included in price) is very good, however, Staff seems to be overwhelmed when busy. Often had to point out empty set ups (ham, cheese, even coffee) at self serve stations. If you like a bowl of noodles or an omelette, they'll prepare quite a good fare for you. If you eat bread, be prepared to see that a cutting board is being cleaned by half inserting the board into an opening of garbage bin and shaking bread crumbs from it, then ... putting it right back into service despite the fact that staff member used his bare hand to remove bread crumbs and touched garbage bin in the process. Another story was the cloth that should be made available for guests when they cut bread. It was missing on a couple of occasions (we stayed 4 days). I had to ask for it, as the manager that was standing next to stations was oblivious to this. What you will also see every morning are three to four people wiping busily all glasses and cups at the bar. They are all washed there in a little sink but... no sanitizing rinse. Well, at least they are washed. The sign of wiping (all the time with same cloth) is unsettling enough to guests who look at food safety first. Then again, flying insects are free to roam in that dining room, as there is no flying insect defence - makes you wonder how the back of the house looks like....

Pool is great and very clean.

Spa seems to be overpriced compared to what you get outside, so we did not try. Check out time is at noon but you can leave your stuff till pick up. Oh, by the way, you will have to ask them for a pick up from airport and it is extra.

Room Tip: Hotel right in the Center of everything, however, next door construction makes noise from early morn...

Apart from the small bath the room was excellent. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was first class and I looked forward to breakfast which set you up for the day. On the first night we dined outside and were entertained by traditional Cambodian dancers - a must. The pool area was hard to leave and the service there always with a smile. The hotel is ideally situated especially for Pub Street and its nearby bars.
