Great pool. Good hotel.from mlasser
The pool is dynamite.
There are some food stalls across the street and a small market nearby where you can pickup water and snacks.
Nice and fastfrom Aznzygote
I didn't eat at any of the rest in the hotel because it's so easy to go to town and so much cheaper. I have to said i was very impress with house keeping. When ever i call them for something, they will be knocking in lease than five minutes. The staff was very friendly. This hotel is the closest to the Angkor Wat. The hotel can arrange all the tour for you. But since i already have my own diver, I didn't use their service. I notice there are always tour bus out side of the hotel.
Impressed by Le Meridienfrom buggybugstone
Room: We were upgraded to a corner suite on the second floor which was awesome! A great size room! A sitting room with a sofa, chair, tv and dvd player. We never even needed the dvd player as the hotel has two free movie channels that always seemed to be playing good films. The room was very elegant and spacious. We were facing the hotel entrance but never heard a peep of traffic or people. Nice white duvet with asian inspired colorful pillows. A crisp asian/elegance throughout the room. Also a tv in the bedroom. We loved getting three apples placed in our room each day and 3 petite fours each evening. The bathroom was very cool, large black tiles with a sparkle-sheen to them. sounds strange but very chic..a nice refreshing difference from the typical marble bathrooms most hotels have. The shower head comes right off so you can spray any part of you or just keep it up as a traditional head. There is no ironing board but they are happen to deliver one in a speedy manner.
Bar: The Naga bar ( think is the name) was pretty slick. The bartenders english could be better but he made up for it in his genuine desire to please us. Do not order a bloody Mary becasue they do not have olives, celery salt or horsradish. They do have the largest draft beers I have seen in a while. You cna also watch CNN while yo ulounge around on the couch in there.
Pool: Very nice to look at, very unique, but a lot of bugs in the pool which kept me from doing anything but jumping in for a moment. The lounge chairs are nice as well as the cabanas. The pool food is just ok, but the bartenders are easy to please and are happy to re-make your drink if you have a complaint.
The spa is gorgeous, the gym is tiny and could be a lot better with more equipment...but it will let you get done the basics that you'll need.
Tour Guide: They will happily set you up with a tour guid and car to angkor wat for $50 a day, $25 for car and $25 for guide, but the guide gets about only 20% of the fee. If there is anyway you can hire the guide without the hotel, please do and contribute to the cambodian economy and not more to Starwood Hotels and resorts.
All empoyees that we encountered were pleasant, professional and seemed eager and happy to make our stay enjoyable.
We never stay at le mereidien but will definitely check it out in other cities. A HUGE reccomendation for this hotel. Great location!
Excellent Hotelfrom nddagwood
Great Location for Exploring Angkor Watfrom trvlmnky
The location is terrific, close to the ruins at Angkor Wat and a quick drive to walk around Siem Reap. There is a concert hall next door, and it was great to sit outside and listen to the music (and see many Cambodian families doing the same). A market is across the street, if you want to grab a baguette in between sight-seeing. Also, the children's hospital is a few buildings down, and passing all of the families waiting for treatment offered some very real insight into what life is like for many Cambodians.
The hotel very well run (we had absolutely no communication problems) and the staff was both friendly and helpful. The rooms are of a nice size with good amenities, including complimentary late-afternoon sweets (we were upgraded, so not sure how the regular standard rooms are). The pool area is large and got great sun - while it's Khmer-theme was a little cheezy, it was also kind of fun. We ate in the Italian restaurant the night we checked in, and it was really delicious!
This hotel is part of a very well-run chain, so it will feel familiar to that end. It is not a boutique-hotel experience, but it was a great place to come back to at the end of long, hot days and a very nice pool to sit out at.
ve stayed in!!!from char645
Second Visit Even Better Than the First!from alaskaitaly
I've just completed another week stay in Siem Reap and the Le Meridien Angkor. I can honestly say that I didn't want to leave!
Two friends joined me for the first three days of my one week stay. We were picked up at the airport in an air-conditioned vehicle, met at the front desk with a welcome drink and cold cloth and extremely easy check-in. We were shown to our rooms by the Guest Relations Manager.
The rooms are beautiful Khmer style-wood floors-large bathrooms with tub and separate shower, plenty of closet and drawer space, safe, small fridge/mini-bar, water kettle and misc. teas. Large television screen with many programs in English including news CNN, BBC, HBO, Hallmark, etc. Side of the bed controls for lights, clock and air conditioning are convenient.
I appreciated the high quality shampoo, conditioner, orange soaps and lotions.
The housekeeping staff were excellent during my stay. I sent many items out for laundering - very pleased!
The breakfast (which I wrote about for my February review) is still great! I found the service in the dining room to be much improved on this trip and the room service menu has been "tweeked" with a variety of better priced items.
They have a good Cambodian dance show a few times a week that includes a dinner that was quite entertaining.
Each day, a fruit plate was put into the room and a smaller plate of some sort of sweet in mid-afternoon.
This trip I took advantage of the exercise room (small but well equipped) and the massage/spa. I had two great massages (East-West Fusion). The pool is beautiful surrounded by smaller pools of lotus flowers.
The staff were helpful and genuinely eager to please. Mr. Maky, the conceirge, is just as wonderful at his job and does it with a huge smile.
On the first day, my friends and I hired a car and driver to take us to the sacred mountain. On the way back we were in a head-on car accident.
Fortunately, none of us were seriously injured-cuts and bumps. When the General Manager of the hotel, Mr. Mudry, was told of our accident, he had a doctor sent to the room and called each of our rooms to make sure we were doing ok and if there was anything that we needed.
We found the General Manager's presence to be friendly, vigilent as to the needs of his guests - far more approachable than I have found in most other hotels.
He also seemed quite sincere in his inquiries into our concerns and comments about his hotel and its staff.
What I would like to see? Breakfast served till 10:30 a.m. (I'm not an early riser) - lemongrass iced tea served before the massages (presently they change the type everyday) or offer a choice - better reading light next to the bed - DVD player in the room would be a nice luxury item - free WIFI useage for those of us who have hauled the extra weight of our laptops clear across the world -
Was ok !!!from cervia

Top Local Tips for Siem Reap
Car, Driver and Tour Guide for the Temples for $65USD The hotel arranged a full day private tour for our party for $65. It was a very good deal and our guide was excellent and charming. We had to pay another $20USD each for a day pass to the ruins.
Angkor Wat Visit at sunrise and experience and elephant ride
Getting a driver for your stay... When you arrive at the Siem Reap airport, getting a taxi to your hotel is hassle free. You go the the taxi counter, pay your USD5, then you get assigned a taxi driver. Most of them speak English to some level and are very friendly. The taxi drivers are also available to drive you around for the entire length of your stay. The going rate is USD25 per day. It is common practice that the driver that takes you to your hotel is also available to drive you around for the rest of your stay. It's good to be cautious, but this is not a scam. They don't expect payment until your last day, so it's a win win situation.
