Very close to Angkor
What we say:
Located well out of Siem Reap, down a dirt path off the back road to Angkor Wat (which used to be the main road when the early French archaeologists and historians were knocking about here), this French-run place has a lovely little garden setting and 19 clean rooms with low, soft beds and stylish, modern decor as well as spotless, if small, bathrooms. Floors are made of teak, and the whole place is distinctly modelled after French-Khmer design, with old posters and maps distinctly evoking a bygone age. If you'd like to stay at La Residence D'Angkor but don't want to spring for it, this is a fine, bargain alternative. Former guests throw around words like oasis when referring to the hotel's atmosphere, and they're not far off. A large, vaulted wooden, traditional style restaurant where we hear fantastic food is served abuts a mid-sized swimming pool surrounded by lounge chairs and palms. Each room has a private, cordoned off spot on the long wooden deck surrounding the pool with its own chairs and table, a perfect spot for breakfast in the morning or a cooling cocktail in the evening. There are also two family suites and two bungalow suites, with private terraces. The main issue is that while you're very close to Angkor, you're quite a way from everything else, so you'll be getting to and from town by tuk tuk. However, daylong tuk tuk transport to the parks and to town are now included in the price, which sweetens the deal. It's a savvy move on behalf of the hotel's managers, because it really negates the one major drawback -- having to pay to get to the restaurants and shops in town. Not anymore. Prices seem to have dropped significantly in the past few years, and Pavillon represents extremely good value for the money. Add $10 to the high season price for bookings between 20 December and 3 January. Recommended.

This place was vry nice, and is a great place to be based for a visit to teh temples. Siem reap town is only $1.50 away and the temples are quite close. The only issue we had was we left some money dollars, pounds, and Baht in the safe in the room thinking it would be safe and thus did not check the money until we went to Bangkok only to find 40 pounds and 150 dollars missing, now you may think we should have noticed but we had 1000 dollars and 100 pounds in a hidden in a filofax along with our passports and round the world tickets. So stay here but do not trust the room staff!!!

Didn't want to leave
Superb setting, very nice lodgings and facilities, exceedingly friendly staff, good food in the restaurant. The drivers the hotel arranged for me were great. The pool was nice and cool, and a nice relief after long, hot days of seeing the temples. Really good people, really great place.

Beautiful and quiet!
I've traveled a lot all over the world and love to find places like this. Heaven, special and the owner and staff outstanding in their help and friendliness. Siem Reap town is noisy, construction filled and really not that pretty. Pavillon Indochine is a haven to return to for food, drink, and rest after a long day out touring around. The tuk-tuk drivers associated with the hotel are wonderful and resouceful on your day outings. Go enjoy the peace and beauty of this place. In the madhouse of the tourist trail this is a place to rest and relax for reasonable prices.

Beautiful rooms and setting - the owners could not have been more helpful and gracious. The restaurant is very good with amazingly helpful and friendly staff. Quiet location near Angkor Wat much nicer than in downtown Siem Reap. Tour guide arranged by Pavillon Indochine was also outstanding. Beatiful pool. Very highly recommended.
