Frangipani Villa Hotel

Frangipani Villa Hotel

Almost Champagne taste for beer money

More on Siem Reap

This stylish hotel is housed in two beautifully-planned, colonial-style buildings whose high design standards announce themselves even before you enter.

Travelfish says:

A grand portico in 1980s eyeshadow blue fronts the main building, sporting grand columns and an art-deco feel, which is continued throughout. The sense of light and air is strong throughout the building, but especially in the large, bright and airy lobby. There are now 36 rooms in all, with pretty four poster beds in the doubles, topped off with simple but elegant furnishings. The only letdown is the floor tiles which are rather pedestrian.

All facilities that you would expect are provided, including free WiFi, TV, tea- and coffee-making facilities, hairdryer, air-con, safety box. The small bathrooms are mostly made of moulded concrete, making them attractive if a little cramped. A mid-sized pool in the back is set in a pretty, landscaped garden with lots of aromatic frangipani trees.

There are two restaurants, one at the back whose decor was a little disappointing, and another more upscale one at the front. The building on the left houses a spa, which we’ve heard good things about, and is also very reasonably priced. Breakfast is included in the very reasonable prices charged, making this a pretty good deal for the money. Laundry service, breakfast and bicycle hire are all complementary. They tend to offer some great deals on their website; make sure to check it before booking. Recommended.
