Historical Traveller Reviews of Prince D Angkor Hotel & Spa
Good choicefrom Miranda_L
The breakfast is functional, although it get svery crowded just before all the tour groups go off for the morning.
The swimming pool is lreally ovely, although they tend to run out of towels.
The location is also good. Just a short tuk tuk ride to many restaurants.
A good choice. Not five star but more than adequite for a lovely trip to Siem Reap.
Great hotel, great servicefrom asianms
It was really hot and hard work visiting the temples, so the hotel was a very welcome respite from the heat. There are many beautiful and new hotels coming up in Siem Reap, but I believe Prince D'Angkor is on par with any of them.
Warning:as we had an early flight home, the hotel provided us with a breakfast pack. There was an egg in the pack that we assumed to be hardboiled, but turned out to be softboiled! All else was good :-)
Good location and pricefrom russellx
Superb location, just outside the hotel we were able to buy beers, waters, foods, etc from the convenient stores that open up 24 hrs. There are couple of restaurants and internet cafes within walking distance as well. We also walked to the Central Market which is about 10 minutes walk to get some souvenirs.
The hotel provides free pickup from the airport even though we did not ask for it and also complimentary drinks with icy cold towers the moment we stepped into the hotel.
The room is furnished with dark colored wood (floor, bed, furnitures), overall clean enough for me to walk around the room without wearing any shoes. Our Deluxe room came with a DVD player as well and not to forget, a total of 81 TV channels that includes News, Sports, Korean, Taiwanese, Local channels.
The room came with complimentary breakfast everyday. Breakfast was a little dull, the same dishes every morning except rotating the potatoes (roast, fried, sauteed).
Good hotel for an excellent tripfrom bhsoon
My primary objective was to visit the ancient ruins and the floating village nearby.
My first impression of the town as I was heading to the hotel didn't help improve my perception of this little town. The heat, dust, muddy roads and an unruly traffic system wasn't quite inviting for those seeking R&R.
So it was a rather pleasent surprise to enter the lobby of this hotel. The place was clean, quiet and cool (despite of the heat outside). The doormen and counter staff were very friendly and helpful. Checking in was a breeze, though the concierge was a little too chatty for his own good.
The room was tastefully decorated with authentic dark colored wooden furnitures, and dressed with nice, matching fabrics and curtains. It doesn't have much of a view but I had the view of the salt water pool, which looked very inviting on a hot, humid day.
The bathroom was clean and functional. Don't expect too much from the mini bar or the toilet (only the basic towel, soap and shampoo) and not even a laundry bag. If you are not fussy, then this hotel would be fine.
The room comes with a complementary buffet breakfast which has a decent spread of international cuisines.
If you are more adventurous, the market and more restaurants are located approximately 10 minutes away (walking distance) from the hotel and there you could find a spread of good local and international cuisines at decent prices. Another good thing about this hotel is that it is not far from a supermarket which is handy if you do not carry a toothpaste or hair gel with you due to the hand carry travel restrictions imposed by the airlines.
The town is not far from the ancient sites so you could arrange to hire a driver for $25 a day or for a cheaper alternative a "tuk tuk". It could get really humid especially during the afternoons so the first option may be a better option since the car will be air conditioned!
Overall I had an excellent trip. The sight seeing was interesting, there was a variaty of food to try, the hotel was nice.
The only negative point I had about this hotel is that it does not accept American Express and JCB cards (even though the materials in the hotel states that they except those cards as well) which is rather a pain for corporate travellers.
Good choicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is very nice, our room was only steps away from the pool, we enjoyed this. We had a DVD player in our room. Very nice dinner at the hotel with a good bottle of wine at affordable prices. Outside the hotel there is a very cheap internet place, USD 0.75 for an hour!
Reasonably good large hotelfrom meandrey
Nice hotel, but lack of detailsfrom taipo_babe
However, it can be better by adding a clothes line in the bathroom, switch the wooden chairs to a comfortable sofa, more storage space, etc.
The 25% discount at the spa only applied to Khmer and/or foot message, no discount for oil message.
But it is a lovely hotel, as a hotelier my opion might be a bit harsh.....
Pool heavenlyfrom kelehb
Great location pool area, average servicefrom Bunny81
We had a deluxe room and it was a nice room with dark wooden floors, decent sized bathroom which had a separate shower and a shower over the bath AS WELL! The room was spacious with a private balcony over looking the pool area, there were about 84 tv channels on the tv!
The pool area was a great, big area and the pool is salt water instead of chlorine which we prefer.
I went to the spa on the last night but I was a bit surprised by it. First of all, it's only open limited hours - 2-11pm and the range of massages is very limited, I think there was about 5 or 6 options total. The cheapest being the Khmer traditional massage at $30USD plus taxes per hour (the others were $40-60USD plus taxes per hour). Although the massage was good, I was lead to a room with about 6 mattresses spread along the floor, I was quite glad I was the only person there at the time as I prefer more privacy when having a massage at this kind of price! So definitely not a luxurious spa! You are given striped cotton pjs to wear ;-) There are chairs out front to have foot massages. Therefore I think Prince DÁngkor "Hotel and Spa" is going a bit far, and being far too generous, because I was thinking more a luxurious spa with private rooms etc.
The breakfast spread was only ok, it was fairly limited if you're after western choices and the same everyday. There are only 2 fruit juice options and both taste like flavoured drink rather than fresh squeezed juice and are very watered down. It operates from 6-10 but one morning we got up at 5am for sunrise at angkor wat and got to breaktast room at 9am. There was very little food left out, most cold and hard and no juices left, the staff too looked a bit put out at still having to serve people at that time and were trying to set up tables for the lunch time.
Service from staff was varied, some were ok but some couldn't really be bothered trying to help you. We did arrange a hotel transfer for our arrival, it was free for booking online, but then changed our flight time 5 days prior to arrival. I emailed the hotel, which is how I had always corresponded with them, to let them know 5 days before we arrived. However, no transfer was at the airport so we had to take a taxi (luckily they're cheap at $5usd). When we got to the hotel I brought this up with the receptionist and he just shrugged and continued our check in, no sorry etc. It wasn't too much of a major for us as seasoned travellers but we were very surprised at level of service.
The wireless internet is $3usd per hour and we were told worked in the room so I bought a card, to find that I couldn't use in the room and finally found out it only worked in the lobby.
Overall, the location is great, pool area is great, and we probably would stay again, however you can't expect the best service or breakfast and go elsewhere if you would like a luxury spa treatement, especially for those kind of prices.

Top Local Tips for Siem Reap
Be prepared It is very dusty during dry season. To avoid breathing in all the dust wear a face mask. Must have item.
Why u should go to Siem Reap in June It is really very hot in June, but a good reason to go to Siem Reap then is that everyone else will be staying away. Temples are not so crowded, and hotels are cheaper (heard from employee at the Raffles that there occupancy rate is at about 40% in summer). So if you are quite tolerant of heat... an umbrella comes in very handy for deflecting all the UV rays
eating out lots of choice to eat I like the F.C.C club for a change to western food.
