Accommodation in this kingdom is numerous from simple home stay to fabulous hotels. Royal Crown Hotel stands to its name of providing superb hotel experience for guests of all classes and races. It was an old hotel renovated a few years back to offer newer designs and varied options in accommodation. There is additional building with western-style room while retaining the beauty of the old hotel. It was my first time to stay in a hotel with separate fresh and salt-water swimming pools. The lobby was spacious and cool with numerous sitting options. Front desk was open 24/7 manned by polite, friendly, accommodating staff. It provides hotel-airport transfer and arranges transport services to Phnom Penh and other places of interests within Siem Reap. There was laundry service and Wifi was readily accessible. It has a cozy restaurant serving Asian and western cuisine ; food tastes great and reasonably priced. Food at the poolside and room service were available. There was also a roof top bar offering various drinks plus barbecue grill... a nice place to spend free time out while enjoying the view of the city and the sunset. The room was spacious and clean, bed was comfortable to rest and sleep. There was mini bar plus free water and coffee maker. There was wide screen cable tv. Cooling system was good. Local landline, cell phone and Wifi signals were good. The bathroom was big as well with separate space for shower and tub. Robe, sleepers, towels, tissue roll, shower cap, shampoo and the likes were freely available. The hotel was strategically located just across the Pub Street and near the Night Market.
One thing though that bothered me was that some hotel staff tried to arrange a 'deal' with tuk-tuk drivers for 'unreasonably high rate' compared with prevailing standard. Good i was able to ask some friends and read a lot about Cambodia before this trip. I took a taxi instead for small difference in fare considering the comfort in a cab. Had it not for this experience, I would have rated Royal Crown Hotel excellent.
