Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor
Classic colonial hotel
What we say:
Winner of numerous awards, the splendid Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor is a spectacular example of classic colonial architecture. Raffles in Cambodia stands for history, and the evidence is everywhere from the beautiful poster prints and photographs, right down to the minuscule vintage elevator. A frangipani-tree-lined pebble driveway leads up to the building's simple, classic facade. The marble-floored lobby signals you've entered Siem Reap's premier historical hotel. The 131 rooms and suites are immaculate and seem slightly larger than those at its sister hotel, Le Royale, in Phnom Penh. Tastefully decorated with a pinch of Khmer influence, they're well furnished, with terrific beds. Unfortunately, some of the furnishings look a bit worn, and the hallways are narrow, signalling the building was constructed before size became paramount. The central building is the original and oozes charm while the new wings house the bulk of the hotel's rooms, and are fresher but possess less of the characteristic colonial decor. The grounds are lovely and include an enormous splashout swimming pool. The service, as you'd expect, is faultless. If you can afford this, go for it -- no other hotel in Siem Reap comes near the ambience and style here. At the back is the Apsara Terrace where they host cultural performances every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with a fantastic Asian buffet. The quintessential high tea is available in the afternoons and comes highly recommended with stacks of beautifully prepared sandwiches, cakes and free-pouring tea or coffee. Walk-in prices are exorbitant, so be sure to check online.
