Historical Traveller Reviews of Raffles Grand Hotel D'Angkor
Great base for exploring Angkorfrom PetenMary
ve seen in my life!from sedelman
excellent servicefrom vannugyen
The hotel is old and grand and certainly the busiest hotel in Siem Reap. The house keeping was the best I have seen in may years of travel. 3 excellent restaurants and in the main dining room ( full every night) the Chef walks the room and prepares special menus for the guests.
The rooms are old and colonial, but still well maintained and the Pool is fantastic. More a lake than a pool.
Charming Historical Hotelfrom KL_Sue
that past its prime!from Papaleadfoot
Colonial Charm with exceptional servicefrom Whinbrook
The bathroom was large, again authentic for the period but with de-luxe touches such as a heated mirror over the marble vanity unit and exceptionally high quality toiletries.
The public areas were not large but had a colonial charm that could never be replicated in modern establishments. The furniture, fabrics and decorations were of the highest quality too. The place oozes history which only adds to a magnificent ambience previously enjoyed by the likes of Noel Coward, Charlie Chaplin and Jackie Onassis.
We dined in both restaurants, the bistro/cafe and the more formal Grand Restaurant. Both were excellent and very good value with the bistro having buffet and a la carte options and the Grand, a sophisticated French menu with a Khmer ifluence. The French colonial legacy of delicious bread and pastries is also alive and well at this hotel!
The staff were also exceptionally helpful, friendly and polite. The front desk staff were especially well trained, dealing with some very difficult and demanding guests. If there was one criticism, it was that some of the staff were still inexperienced and in their willingness to be helpful and professional were a little overwhelmed but senior staff were very quick and efficient in rectifying and situation. A nice touch was to be greeted with frozen towels when returning from sightseeing.
The grounds were immaculate too with a large excellently maintained swimming pool and terrace that only added to the pleasure of staying at this wonderful historic hotel

Great atmospherefrom frenchandparisian
Rooms are either in the main building, or in a newer garden wing. they either overlook Siem reap's main square, but are quiet, or the swimming pool and gardens.
Rooms are nice. Not modern by any standard, and the colonial ambiance makes the furniture a little outdated. But they are extremely comfortable, and the aircon IS new. The bathroom dates back from the foundation, with some chips, but whatever. The plumbing is old too: it is difficult to get a steady temperature in the shower at some time, when fellow guests have their shower too.
Two dining options, including one khmer heute cuisine, surprisingly good, in a beautiful room. It is simple and safe to venture outside for a change: we tried the beautiful Amansara next door, and the good Pansea.
The main negative point here is service. They are nice and smiling and willing to help. They just don't get anything right. Any quiry out of something really basic will be met with a bright "yes Sir". You either get nothing at all, or something totally unexpected. They did not replenished the inroom coffee tray. I let it know to the desk three times. I finally ended with a tea pot, and a cold one because it had sat all day in the room. And this is just one example.
Swimming pool is beautiful, and spa is great after a hot day in the ruins.
It is a really nice place to stay at, but one should not expect Hyatt style, or Four Seasons standards. Knowing this, the place is enjoyable.

Top Local Tips for Siem Reap
Cambodia Visa I do recommend getting your VISA on-line before departure. It is quick and easy if you know how to scan your passport size photo. It is $25 and the line is shorter when you arrive at the Siem Reap airport. Transportation from the airport is inexpensive. The airport is beautiful and new as is the paved road from the airport to the city center. Cambodia e-visa
How to tour the temples Rent a car and hire the services of a tour guide. It's worth it. The car can be rented for half a day or whole day and its at your disposal during that time. The tour guide is very helpful because he can tell you insights about the temples that you wouldn't know if you do it on your own. Go early in the morning or close to sunset to avoid the heat and the humidity because it can really get warm for you to sweat buckets. And it's no fun climbing up the temples at the height of noon.
eVisa get an eVisa on the Cambodian consulate's website-- $25 US as opposed to $20 at the airport, they accept nearly any emailed photo (when you submit it tells you instantly) & the visa is emailed to you within a day or two (so you do not have to snail mail your passport)... the eVisa gets you in a special, fast immigration line at the airport... there's a $25 departure tax, they accept credit cards
