Newly opened 10 room boutique heritage hotel in a 1920s shophouse by Siem Reap’s Old Market area. Cool design, great location.

Location

Right by The Old Market and Pub St and within easy reach on foot of cafes, restaurants and nightlife - including a couple on the same strip.

Review

These guys have done an impressive job of retaining the shophouse exterior of this building, while completely reworking the interior into 10 rooms across three levels.

The most impressive design element is the courtyard. A feature of the traditional shophouse, it’s been enlarged and reengineered here, providing a sense of light and space that is so often lost in new hotels in this part of the world.

The lead-in rooms look into the courtyard. We recommend the deluxe rooms. They look over the street and have balconies.

Room sizes start from 27sqm so they’re a good size for a boutique hotel.

There’s no lift or swimming pool.
