Siem Reap hotels - need to know
16 Jan 2018

Siem Reap is home to some of the best hotels and resorts in South East Asia. There are some horrors too. But the standards are generally good. And the quality available to travellers on a budget is impressive. We picked four hotels to give a you a sense of the range of a accommodation in Siem Reap for travellers seeking out design and character. There are plenty more too.

COVID has ravaged the travel industry. Hotels, restaurants and other hospitality businesses have closed or changed hands. Publishers have been ravaged too - especially independent publishers. We're trying to keep up - it's a huge job. If you'd like to help us along the way, you can make a donation below. Otherwise, know that we're working hard to bring things up to date and all our content has a date reference so you can see how recent it's likely to be.

Very good accommodation is available to visitors to Siem Reap on most budgets. If you're ready to spend beyond $30US, you’ll be surprised by what’s possible.

If you’re ready to spend between $80US and $150US the options are amazing.

And then at the top end - say $300US and up - there are loads of choices too. Big names like Raffles, Aman (the Amansara in Siem Reap), Park Hyatt, Zannier and more - have built handsome properties in Siem Reap.

We put this video together to give you a sense of the design hotels available in Siem Reap across a range of budgets - from around $40US to north of $300US.

Check it out.

Rusty Compass recommendations are always independent. We list the places we think you should know about. That’s it. We stayed at Pages Rooms and paid our way. No money changed hands for inclusion in the video or on this page.
