Excellent all round hotel, in a great central location only about 600 metres from pub street, The buffet breakfast has lots of variety and is of good quality. The staff are friendly and welcoming with ready smiles. Reception provides quick check in and is most helpful if you have any questions. The swimming pool is enormous and well maintained. My room overlooks the pool and is a good size with good amenities.
We stayed in a Superior Room overlooking the pool. The room was nice but the bathroom was in need of a refurbishment. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel was of a good standard and clean throught. We had all our meals at the hotel, the food and cocktails were good. There was a traditional dance show although we were not aware of it in time to get tickets, but had free viewing from our balcony. The reception area was large and welcoming. The restaurant was large, with buffet style breakfast with a large selection to choose from. There is a large swimming pool.
My wife and I stayed here for a week 14th to 22nd March 2020. If I could give star ratings for hotels I would give this hotel 5+ stars. It is fantastic. Unfortunately it was quiet due to the covid19 virus, at times it felt as if we were the only people here, But even if we were the staff worked amazingly their standards are really high.. From cleaners, gardeners, maintenance, waiters waitresses and the reception staff they can't do enough for you. It was my wife's birthday one day, when we returned to our room we found a message made of flowers on the bed plus they came to our room with a cake and sang happy birthday to her,,, "see photos" came back every day and the room was freshly made up.. Breakfast was massive so much to choose from even when it got really quiet and they did a set breakfast it was lovely Full English, cereal, bread basket, fruit, tea coffee juice… we didn't have an evening meal as we went out every day/evening, but they changed the whole restaurant for evening times and it looked lovely. Pool area was immaculate always someone sweeping cleaning watering flowers ect. The hotel is only about 20mins from angkor wat. Fantastic day had a tuc tuc from the hotel pick up at 4.30am if you want to see an amazing sunrise.. Top tip get yourself a guide there are loads as you walk to the entrance he started at $35. Finally excepted $15 but we gave him $20. Bearing in mind it was very quiet… we have photos of just me and my wife and the hole of angkor wat in the background. Normally thousands of people there… Pub street is about 10mins walk away.. Look it up its the place to go to.. To be honest we can't comment on the hotel if it was fully booked but I can only imagine the staff would work just as hard if not harder.. We have stayed in many hotels around the world, not to bad ones, good ones, really good, and great ones, and a couple of fantastic ones this is up with the fantastic ones.. We have been to cambodia / vietnam a couple of times now so won't be coming back but if we ever did we would definitely stay here.. …
First thing i need to say about this hotel is that the staff are awesome especially Khemara on the front desk. We stayed here on the advice on some friends we met in Phnom Penh and is about the best recommendation that we have received. The Hotel is large with a massive pool and swim up bar. The Grounds are immaculate. The Breakfast is probably the best that we had in the 6 weeks away. The room staff were always on hand to help if you required anything. It is a short walk to Pub Street and close to all the Temples and attractions.( you need to check out the Apopo rats - Hero rats that find landmines is a must). 100% I will be coming here again. There is an excellent Buffet with a show for a very reasonable price every night. We stayed only about 5 days but was still 2 days longer than we were going to.…
Great hotel and worth money! We stayed here. It's very strategic. It's about 9km from both the airport and Angkor Wat. They have 10 minutes to access to Pub Street is very easy recommending for walking. Room is very clean, in the bathroom was clean. The water was flowing from the shower as well. There are no door per say that divide the bathroom, toilet and sink so you have to be very comfortable with the people you are staying with. A part of the room smelt of fish when we first entered but it went away. The swimming pool is deep and clean. There is have many voice of buffet for breakfast . Taste is absolutely fine. Service is best. They were very accommodating to some of my special requests. Read less
I did not stay at this hotel but came only for dinner and the Aspara show. The dinner buffet was excellant with lots of choices, and it was a beautiful setting by the huge outdoor pool. I thought the show was very good, colorful costumes, talented dancers, excellant live music. At the end you were allowed to pose with the cast which a nice touch. A great way to enjoy Cambodian food and culture!
The reception area has beautiful hand crafted all the floors carry beautifulpaintings, handicrafts. Rooms are well appointed. Good variety in food. But like all south east asia, vegetarian gets a short shrift Enjoyed morning traditional pooja, except it was too long drawn
Stayed in a 1st floor room in the Premium wing for 24 nights in the first part of February (and also some of January). A good large room, and a particularly spacious bathroom. The room was not, thank goodness, in the minimalist style which is unfortunately becoming popular in Asia - so it was solid, comfortable, and with plenty of storage space - wardrobe, shelves, and so on - so that everything, including luggage, could be tidied away and the room did not look messy. There was a proper desk where we could work at the computer, a fridge, a very comfortable bed - one of the hardest we have had, but we like that - and there was also a balcony which caught the afternoon sun, so a very good place to sit for a late snack lunch after swimming, or to dry swimming costumes. Internet was a bit "sticky" and slow sometimes, and would often sign us out, but this is often a problem in Siem Reap and we would not blame the hotel for it. We managed to cope with it. The bathroom floor was entirely coated in non-slip tiles - a very good idea which we had not seen before. There was a large bath and an enormous walk-in shower. We never had any problem with hot water. The pool is the "star" of the hotel. It measures 40m by 15m and is wonderful for swimming lengths (or widths). I was very pleased that I could sometimes swim a couple of kilometres there in a day. The area around the pool is kept clean by regular washing down of surfaces, and fumigation of the grounds is carried out on Wednesday evenings (notice of this is given in the rooms). We had three very good massages in the spa. At the time, there was a discount, which means that they cost us $15 each, which we thought was reasonable for a hotel massage. This area also has exercise machines, warm (segregated) jacuzzis, and a steam room. The grounds are limited, but well kept with orchids, greenery - and don't miss the cannonball tree on the main driveway ... The location is excellent for restaurants, shops, pharmacies, and supermarkets. An "Angkor Market" is almost right opposite the hotel entrance, as is the restaurant Indochine (recommended). There is a Lucky Mall further up Sivatha Bld on the right, and another in a new mall opposite Independence Gardens. You are within walking distance of Wat Kesararam (up Sivatha Bld, cross at the main road by the Gardens, and turn left). The river can be accessed by going out of a side entrance, and walking straight down away from Sivatha. Wats Bo, Damnak, and Preah Prom Rath are ten minutes away, as is the Old Market. There is a good French hairdresser at the neighbouring hotel (Prince d'Angkor). The rooms in the Premium wing have no traffic noise, and evening noise from buffets, apsara dance shows, etc., is over by half-past eight or nine. Staff cannot be faulted. Smiling, warm, kind, helpful, always working (not staring at mobile phones!) well-trained and well-managed - managers are visible at all times. Very impressed! I am sorry to say that some Thai hotels could learn a thing or two about staff management and motivation from this hotel. We were here for Chinese New Year and a wonderful display of lion dancing and music was put on. I have included a couple of photos of this. Just a few niggles, which is why I have given 4 rather than 5. The music from the pool bar really did get on our nerves! We would have preferred no music, or traditional Cambodian music, and at a lower level. The quality of the bread/croissants at breakfast needs to be improved. Breakfast can get slightly too busy when the hotel is full (some tour groups use it). There is some noise from inconsiderate guests moving chairs about in the early mornings - perhaps small felt pads under the legs of chairs would stop the "scraping". Perhaps also something could be done to remind guests about acceptable behaviour? The staff are very good about this, generally, asking guests not to go in the pool with shoes on or to remove the life buoys and use them as inflatable toys (!) but we also saw other bad behaviour such as the removal of a baby's soiled nappy in the pool, a lot of spitting at the edge of the pool, and completely naked people on a balcony! I appreciate that staff cannot be everywhere and that it is very difficult to mention these things to guests, but one particular country does produce some anti-social behaviour and, of course, it could occur in any hotel. That said, we had a lovely stay, felt very much at home (I think it was our 7th visit to Siem Reap), and were sad to leave. We hope to come back next if at all possible.…
Stayed at this beautiful hotel for 5 nights during our Siem Reap trip. Very nice location, exceptionally clean. Great breakfast, with lots of choices. And above all the staff from front desk to housekeeping and the manager were excellent. Will definitely come back.
The Soamdevi is a great base from which to explore Angkor Wat and the other temples in the Srin Reap region. The rooms are clean and comfortable but pretty average in terms of decor and amenities. The breakfast is also pretty average. The pool and pool area (ba couple of nice bars) are very welcoming after a hot day at the temples but the biggest asset of the hotel is its staff who are courteous, smiling and extremely efficient.
