What we say:
Set a short walk from the Siem Reap River in Wat Bo, compact Viroth's is truly a boutique hotel — one that has earned the moniker rather than shamelessly appropriated it. Viroth's has but a handful of slick, stylishly designed rooms, clustered through a multi-level modern construction which overlooks the most perfect (albeit small) swimming pool. We liked Viroth's a lot — and so do their guests. "Fabulous" was how one guest described it, before offering to walk us through his room! The room's styling is in the ivory linens, sharp edges minimalist school that is popular in Thailand, and they've got it down just about perfectly here. Rooms are airy and clean, with singular walls painted bright red. Features include air-con as well as ceiling fans, for those who want to keep the sliding glass doors to their private porches open. The decks have minimal furniture but come with a key ingredient to a pleasant outdoor evening in Siem Reap — a giant, mosquito-killer lamp. The rooms themselves are open, with the rainfall shower bathroom connected to the room, and the toilet the only space cordoned off by a separate door. There's cable TV, internet access and firm, queen-sized beds. The rooftop cafe, which serves food throughout the day, and adjacent Jacuzzi (which like the pool is on the small side but pristine) swing the deal. Jacuzzi-side massage is available underneath a canvas awning. The owners, a Cambodian named Viroth and his French partner, are just as stylish and inviting as their hotel. Viroth's feels like it would be just as at home perched on a Balinese cliff top looking out over the ocean as it does on this Siem Reap back road and next time we're in town we know where we'll be staying. Highly recommended.

Viroth's was recommended by Travelfish and so we gave it a shot. What a deal, absolutely fantastic! We stayed in a triple room so that we would have 2 beds and booked the lifestyle package. We had been traveling through Vietnam prior to visiting Siem Reap, our final destination, and were ready for some comfort and pampering. The dinner at Viroth's Restaurant was amazing. The Khmer massage was a real treat and very appreciated after walking Angkor all day. We had the pool to ourselves, a fantastic mid day break from the temples. Laundry is expensive; walk down the street 5 minutes and you'll find a place that will machine wash for $1/kilo. The boutique atmosphere was awesome. The hotel next door apparently had a bunch of kids and Viroth's did not.... so nice to chill at the pool and not have kids jumping in on you. Highly recommended.. Great research on Travelfish's part.

The rooms at viroth's are so beautifully designed and the staff were very helpful and attentive. Our bus tickets to Phnom Penh arrived one day when we were not there and one of the staff members paid for them out of his own money until we got back. After a long hot day out among the temples being able to float in the pool while sipping one of the best margaritas I have ever tasted brought me back to life! We had some problems with the rainfall shower as the pressure and temperature kept fluctuating but I think it may have just been a temporary problem they were having. Overall we loved it.
