Preah Vihear Boutique Hotel

Preah Vihear Boutique Hotel

Fanciest for miles around

More on Preah Vihear Temple

A startling discovery, and a sure sign of the changes being brought to this market village, Preah Vihear Boutique Hotel is as fancy as you’ll get for many miles around.

Travelfish says:

The air-con rooms are stylish and modern, with all of the usual things that you would expect in this price range, including cable TV and a minibar. There’s a temptingly large pool outside too. The bar and restaurant serve up a full menu of Khmer and Western food that is pricier than anywhere else in town, but you won’t get pasta or pizza anywhere else in town either.

While it looks good, we have a feeling that it was thrown up in a bit of a hurry. Anyone with OCD would have a nervous breakdown here, as nothing seems to be straight or to fit properly into its allotted space. The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional and could not have been nicer. If your budget doesn’t stretch to the $80 a night rooms, they also have a row of $30 rooms to the side, which means you get to use all of the same amenities, just without the jazzy bedroom. These rooms are small, and poorly lit, but seemed clean and well serviced, with TV and air-con. You can, however, get better value elsewhere.
