Here is a small selection of some of our favourites, but as said, the list of great places to stay could be nearly endless…

For backpackers with a bit of a higher budget or travellers who like to have fun, both the Siem Reap Hostel and the Mad Monkey Hostel are nice places to stay. They are well maintained and are holding events such as BBQs on a regular bases. The Mad Monkey has a roof-top beach bar, and the Siem Reap Hostel has a pool.

Another good place to socialize is Rosy’s Guesthouse on the riverfront near the Royal Palace. It also features a good restaurant and bar, in which a charity quiz is held on the first Friday each month, with all proceedings going to local NGOs.

The Golden Bananas (four on one compound ) are long established favourites among travellers. All of them feature swimming pools in stylish settings. Gay friendly.

A great addition to Siem Reap’s hotel scene is the re-opening of the Rose Apple B&B, run by a lovely Khmer/Belgian couple, now boasting a swimming pool and restaurant.

Always a good deal are the Golden Temple Hotel and the Golden Butterfly. Stylish rooms, nice pools and friendly staff at reasonable prices.

A bit further up the price range is the Moon Boutique Hotel. Beautiful setting around a swimming pool and a highly recommended restaurant make this place an ideal choice to enjoy some refreshing hours during travels.

Sojourn Boutique Hotel lies on the outskirts of town, surrounded by rural villages and rice fields. Well appointed bungalows placed around a beautiful pool (including a bar accessible from the water ) makes Sojourn the perfect get away.

Last on our list is the spectacular Navutu Dreams Resort.
