“Great stay at the Tara Angkor”
Reviewed 30 January 2011

Tara Angkor-Siem Reap

This nicely presented hotel is roughly a 5min tuk tuk ride from the main centre of Siem Reap. There's always a tuk tuk waiting close to the hotel which should only cost no more than 2 dollars.
The hotel is also closely located to Angkor Watt, which is about a 10-15min Tuk tuk.  

We arrived at the hotel 6pm after a long journey starting from Bangkok, so were both exhausted, we were kindly welcomed with a refreshing lemon grass drink and cool flannel, we were swiftly checked in by the friendly front of house staff and shown to our room.

We booked a standard double which had plenty of space, dressing table, hair dryer, flatscreen, and bath/shower with all the complimentary toiletries also. There is also wifi in the room.   

The hotel had a pool and gym, but only used the pool which is located towards the back of the hotel over looking the rooms, which also had a smaller children's pool attached. 

The breakfast buffet had a large selection with a egg and fresh soup/ noodle station.

Overall we would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay slightly away from all the hustle and bustle of the centre, but still close enough to pop back and forth without hassle. The hotel is clean, modern with very helpful and friendly staff.

This is s great hotel choice if you would like to be close to Angkor Wat, however it is not within walking distance to the central part of Siem Reap, but it is only a $2-3 tuk tuk ride away.This hotel looks quite nice and modern and overall the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was lovely, with a lot of food to choose from. The room were quite basic, but spacious and very clean. Unfortunately, the rooms are incredibly noisy we heard everything from the rooms and people around us, doors banging, people talking etc. The hotel really needs to look at sound proofing their rooms a lot better. Upon our arrival we were greeted by lovely staff members at reception, however the gentlman that officially checked us in and took us to our rooms was not overly friendly and appeared annoyed when I asked him if he could arrange our beds to be put together as I did not request a twin room considereing we were on our honeymoon! He also stood there, after he had finished explaining the room to us, waiting for his tip! The hotel also provides excellent interney facilities for its guests.

Promt Service, Very friendly staff. I really liked the decor and the professionalism. They took care of even the smallest requests - even more appreciative because we had a toddler.

We were very pleased with the accommodations at the Tara Angkor in Siem Reap and believe that the Tara is the equal of the more costly Raffles, where we stayed in Phnom Penh.

the outdoor dining area made for an enjoyable breakfast experience and the buffet was extensive.

Service was excellent and the staff was more than helpful.
