Angkor Holiday Hotel review, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Now I’ve reviewed a fair few hotels since starting the travel section of my blog, and I always like to stay at a range of hotels of different prices.
This Angkor Holiday Hotel review certainly falls into the value category.
As part of our trip to Asia, we fitted in a rather last minute plan to fly to Siem Reap in Cambodia, to visit the legendary Angkor Wat temple.
We were only staying one night and we knew we’d spend most of our time outdoors, so we opted for a reasonably priced crash pad rather than a luxury hotel.
To our joy, we realised that like many places in Asia, a little money goes a long way, so we managed to get a hotel with breakfast for under £40!
Now we didn’t have overly high hopes for the Angkor Holiday Hotel review, as we’d figured that you get what you pay for. But the hotel really exceeded our expectations.
Firstly, location. The hotel was situated right in the centre of Siem Reap. This meant we were within walking distance of a couple of markets, restaurants and shops, not to mention having a halal KFC down the road. For added convenience, several tuk tuks were waiting outside out hotel ready to take us around.
Our room wasn’t spectacular, but honestly wasn’t bad. We ended up with a family room with a double and single, but there were all the amenities, hair dryer, toiletries, safe and complimentary bottled water. In fact, there wasn’t anything noticeably amiss compared with the other hotels on our trip.
The hotel also had a pool, games area, and lounge area. On our last day, they were kind enough to let us come back to the hotel and shower off using their towels before our flight back to Bangkok.
Breakfast at the hotel was also impressive. I assumed that for the price, we’d get a standard continental buffet. So it was a very pleasant surprise to see a fruit selection, hot food and an egg station outside, with polite staff ready to make us omelettes, fried eggs or even soup to our taste.
This provided a great start to the day, ensuring we were full ahead of a packed schedule of sightseeing.
So overall the Angkor Holiday Hotel review is a great one. The hotel exceeded our expectations. We expected a simple crash pad, but we actually got a decent night’s stay.
A great crash pad, with friendly staff and a good location, there was nothing not to like.
