What we say:
Only a minute away from the centre of town, Encore Angkor opened in late 2008 with the slogan "Just don't tell anyone". Fortunately, people have been telling someone, and they are finally seeing a decent turnover of people in the door. Notwithstanding its location so near to town, the interior is quiet as they've installed double-glazing. The manager is a fascinating woman, whom it would pay well to speak to if you'd like to understand a little more about Cambodia and she has extremely good spoken English. She confessed that her written English is not that great however and so anyone making a query by Internet should try to keep it simple and uncomplicated, or pick up the phone. The hotel rooms are spic and span, with comfortable beds, big bathrooms, fridge, safety box, air-con and TV and the decor is simple but tasteful. There is a good sized pool out the back and a small open-air restaurant in front under a thatched roof. A strict moral code is enforced here, so if you're planning on bringing back "friends", forget about it. That makes this very attractive for families or those seeking to escape that kind of scene as other establishments in the area are not as conscientious. The large open lobby is welcoming, and the manager is keen that people should feel at home here. Complimentary tea and coffee are provided, computers are available and there is free WiFi. Room rates include breakfast.

We arrived here after 29 hours of travel and the staff were wonderfully welcoming, offering us a cold drink, taking our packs upstairs and pointing out the pool so we could cool off and relax.
We spent 3 nights here and were very happy with the staff (the most helpful we've been across), the location (very close to everything but far enough off the main road to be a bit quieter), the breakfasts (enormous) and of course the pool.
The only small drawback was the lack of heavy curtains in the rooms, meaning we were woken up early in the morning by the sunrise. Either bring an eyemask, or ask for a room on the western side of the building if that bothers you. Otherwise, a great choice.

for a few dollars more
Jan 2010 actually . This definitely in flashpacker territory but a fine choice still. Pool was the big attraction but throw in a big brekky included and free wifi and value is there at &30. Rooms clean and comfy(as you expect at this price) including bath and excellent hot water.Pillow and mattress excellent.Staff friendly, helpful with good language skills.
