Historical Traveller Reviews of Tara Angkor Hotel

Great Value, Outstanding Sevice

from Northern_Travelers1
We heard about the Tara Angkor while we were in norhern Laos and contacted them through email. We were able to negotiate an excellent rate for a family of 4 for 3 nights stay. The service at this hotel is as good or better than any 5 star I have stated at in North America. Nice pool, great rooms, awesome staff.

Great Hotel

from preteentraveler
This is an excellent, large, 4 star hotel. It's stylish and has great amenities. We especially enjoyed the fitness room and the swimming pool. We don't normally stay in this kind of hotel, but it had a fantastic "Hot Summer Deal" for families which allowed my brother, my parents, and me an extremely cheap price for our adjoining rooms. Also, this hotel had a pretty good location. Though it was a 2 USD tuk-tuk drive to town, it was located on the road to the Temples of Angkor which was very convenient. The service in the Tara Angkor was great, almost a little too much because when we checked in the staff were all over us, giving us our welcome drink, our welcome present, and forms to fill out all at once. But, overall, a wonderful stay at the Tara Angkor (highly recommended)!!

We stayed for three nights in the Tara (Junior Suite) and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Its brand new, the accommodation is clean and spacious and the staff absolutely fantastic.

We booked online with the hotel and took advantage of their special offer, which included free transfers from the airport (amongst other things).

From start to finish the staff were friendly and very helpful. The hotel tour manager was very knowledgeable and able to provide some great tips on what to see and what to avoid.

The hotel is conveniently located for the temples of Angkor and the centre of Siem Reap is only 5 minutes by tuk tuk.

The rooms are beautifully decorated, in a modern, minimalist style with a local flavour (such as the Cambodian silk bed covers) and have every modern convenience - including huge plasma screens in both the living area and bedroom. Perfect for relaxing after a day at the temples or local markets.

The rest of the hotel also lives up to expectations. The restaurant is great – providing an extensive buffet breakfast and catering for both Western and Asian palettes. The outside terrace is lovely and cool (well-shaded with water features) and a great spot for breakfast or lunch.

The poolside terrace is also good – with a range of seating and faultless service. Whilst the pool itself is fantastic and provides a much needed respite from the heat of the temples. There is also on onsite gym and sauna – if you feel up to it.

Simply cannot praise this hotel enough – set to be a firm favourite amongst some stiff local competition. I would not hesitate staying there in the future (I’m sure there is a temple or two we missed) and would definitely recommend the Tara to others.

gorgeous hotel

from carluke
My husband and I and our 2 children (ages 16 &12) stayed in the Family Suite which we got for a discounted price through the hotel website as its opening specials. Beautiful suite. Everything was very tasteful and clean. I loved that it was a small cosy hotel compared to some of the huge hotels around. The service was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful in giving advice etc.

The breakfast buffet was also superb with a real variety of food. The location was ok. We just got a tuk tuk each evening to go into town and have dinner and shop around. Cheap enough and we all loved the tuk tuk rides.

The temples are all within easy distance whether tuk tuk, or van hire.

The hotel arranged our tour driver and van and also our tour guide. We were very happy with both

On the whole our 5 nights in Siem Reap were fantastic. The cambodian people are just so lovely and friendly. I really didnt mind if I paid too much I was more than happy that they got the money. Staying at the Tara Angkor just enhanced our whole trip there. The free airport transfer was also terrific. Lovely guy and picked us up on time and brought us back on time. If I went to Siem Reap again I would stay here again.

A very regular hotel - with some good things !

from Proxification
It was a quick trip to Siem Reap to see the famous Angkor Vat. A good hotel was a bonus and yeah we got it. A reasonably priced hotel very close to Angkor with easy access to the museum (3-4 min walk), downtown (1-2 USD tuk tuk drive), convenience store (next door) and off-course the Angkor Vat (around 6'ish KM). The bst thing about the hotel is the french lady who is the part of management and makes sure that guests are at comfort. The staff goes out of way to give some practical tips / information to tourists like me who have never read about Angkor vat since their elementary history books and need all the info in "executive summary" as they say.

We loved this hotel

from manxaura
We were at the Tara Angkor for the last 3 nights of our trip to Cambodia in March 2008. We’d booked the most basic room and it was more than what we’d expected. We paid USD72 for each night. The room was spacious, clean, well appointed, had all the usual amenities expected (except an ironing board and iron which were never in any hotel we stayed in whilst in Vietnam or Cambodia), very comfortable and secure. It faced neighbouring buildings to the north, but that wasn’t an issue as they were all shorter and we were after all in the less expensive room - the plus side of it was that it did get enough sunshine to dry some of our clothes quickly ;-). Rooms that faced the internal courtyard also faced internal facing rooms on the other side! We did not get any road noise (despite the location of the hotel being on the busy road to the temples). There were two separate cupboards to store away all your clothes and bags; plenty of drawers and a largish safe.

We were given a welcome drink on arrival, seated and all the usual check in handled by the staff whilst we waited. The reception staff that did our check in then escorted us to our room to explain its amenities and the bags brought up by the bell hop. We felt almost embarassed by our bags that had suffered a little road side dirt and our slightly grubby dressing. All staff spoke English well and we didn't have any communication problems. They were excellent – friendly, professional and helpful. What amazed us with hotels in Vietnam and Cambodia is how the staff always recognised us and knew exactly what our needs were. You never felt that you were imposing by asking too much.

The internal hotel space was spacious, the restaurant was large and there were also external seating areas for those who wanted a more al fresco dining style (suited for Breakfast and Dinner but a bit hot for lunch). The breakfast spread was huge and catered to different breakfast styles (Continental, Asian and American). We didn’t have any other meals there. The hotel location meant that it was part way between town and temples. It’s too far to the temples on foot (as are all other hotels) but not far to walk to town – about 15 to 20 min stroll with enough to see along the way. Tip: If heading into town, walk down to the first side street to the left (has set of traffic lights) after exiting the hotel, head down this street (there is a laundry service here – two laundry signs are present but head to the second one ... they charge USD2 per kg – not sure if this is local price or foreigner price) and then turn right and walk down by the riverside – some trinkety stalls and a look at Cambodian life. No one harassed us to buy anything. The road comes out at the Royal Independence Garden. A tuk-tuk ride back from town would cost USD1.50 at a minimum although USD2.00 seems to be the average asking price [when haggling, just remember that at the end of the day 50 cents isn’t much to you but means alot to the driver]. A ride to the airport in the hotel bus costs the two of us USD10/-. Wasn’t a long ride, but for our very early morning departure, the price wasn't an issue.

The main gripe we have with the hotel is that they charge USD3.00 per hour for using their wireless internet service (0.75 cents at internet cafes) – all other hotels, including lesser stared ones we stayed at provided wi-fi for free. Being a large hotel, it also attracts large tour groups – but since we weren't there all the time it wasn't an issue except for the one time when the pool got a little over crowded with the younger set that were staying there. No doubt, this would not be a consistent problem. The pool itself was nicely located at the far end so that it did not have any passing traffic (of non-pool using guests). It was over chlorinated, but you'd expect that for a publicly used pool.

From what we saw of hotels in Siem Reap, many of them were of a high standard. If we returned, we'd stay at another hotel, but only for the sake of a different experience. We'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone considering staying here.

great hotel

from varleyar
Stayed at this hotel for 6 days and was very happy. The hotel is very new so is nice and clean, decor very nice with small design touches to give the rooms some personality, (although the lack of bedside reading light was a silly design flaw) Pool was a very nice place to hang out in after a morning of VERY hot temple visits. The staff are very nice at front desk however I feel that as Siem Reap is developing so fast as a tourist destination the hotel staff have been told how to do certain things but don't quite understand why they have to do them. For example they offer a turn down bed service where a woman literally comes to the room and turns down a corner of yr sheets... ignoring the dirty towel which is on the bathroom floor or anything else in the room which in other places would be tidied away. Also there is piped music thru-out all the public areas of the hotel which I could hear from the room and was very annoying around the pool. Generic elevator music of soft rock classics is totally not needed.
The Cambodian people are so sweet and friendly that I found myself ignoring small things about the hotel which otherwise I would have found annoying and generally I was just nit picking about what is in effect a lovely hotel and a lovely destination.

Luxury Hotel

from Pettigetti
We have just had 2 nights in this hotel and it was a total joy, when we arrived we were asked to take a seat and a member of staff registered us into the hotel whilst sat in comfort and drinking a local soft drink. The hotel is spotless, the staff are efficient and friendly, the hotel is very clean and tidy and nicely decorated. The rooms are gorgeous and have everything you may need including gowns and slippers, plus all bathroom give-aways ! Breakfast was very nice, good selection and wonderful location - you can sit in the restaurant or outside in a courtyard which we did ! The swimming pool is very nice and never busy ! Really liked the fact that the bed was turned down whilst we were out having our evening meal, nice touch. Totally enjoyable !!!

Spanking new hotel with great service

from AFAShahAlam
Arrived on 13th Feb 2008 to meet up with my husband in Siem Reap (he travelled by road from Malaysia; him on an Aprilia Pegaso with 3 mates in a 4WD). My husband booked the special deal on-line since it is a new hotel - fantastic rates with daily breakfast and either one free lunch or dinner, free transfers, free Wi-Fi, swimming pool, sauna and gym available.
It was great service from the welcome drink to the check-out.
i would not hesitate to stay in Tara Angkor again as i think i need another visit to see the many other temples i missed this time due to shortage of time!

Amazing hotel with incredible service

from JoJoLondon
We have just stayed at the Tara Angkor and can not praise it enough. the hotel rooms and grounds and pool are beautiful and the staff are incredible. The attention to detail is amazing and the breakfast buffet is also great!

It has only very recently opened and we were able to get a discounted price via the hotel website.

Top Local Tips for Siem Reap

Motodups (tuk-tuk) find out the charges to a specific destination before you get on; sometimes it is better to decide that you will hire one motodup fro a whole day - it works out cheaper and the driver will wait for you at the destinations that you go to - like having a day chaffeur!

FCC - Cool Colonial Style The FCC is a great place to eat - try the taster platters (best when shared). Superb atmosphere, great deco and decent cocktails. There was even a local fashion show on the front lawn whilst we were there and the venue hosts other events on a regular basis. Highly recommended.

NEGOTIATE PRICE FIRST WITH TUK TUK DRIVERS... ..MAKE SURE YOU KOW YOUR PRICE.
