    What area is best to stay in Siem Reap? We would like to be in walking distance shops and dining. We probably won't spend much time in the city since we will be visiting Ankor most of the time, but would still like to be close to grab dinner and see the town. The area needs to be safe. Are there any hotels you recommend?

    Thank you!

    If you're looking more upscale - the area south of the Airport Road and North of the Hospital is probably good - away from the noise of the old market and pub street but still a really close walk.

    If you want somewhere really quiet and laid back - I highly recommend Babel Siem Reap. The staff there is fantastic and a great area to lounge in at the end of the day if you don't feel like finding a restaurant around all the noise. That said, its probably 10-15 minute walk from the middle of town near the Wat Bo area.
