Shining Angkor Boutique Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a good place to relax - away from the hubbub in Siem Reap and on the way if you are visiting Angkor Wat and other temples. It is small but large enough to have the amenities and be able to arrange tours etc for you at sensible prices with safe tuk tuk drivers who know the bumps in the road to avoid and the over touristy places. We had massages in the hotel which were good and well priced. There are restaurants nearby - see my review on MAOM just up the road - and a small market. Its only a 10 min ride to get into SR if you need more noise and shops.

Lovely, clean hotel with friendly staff willing to help with booking tours and arranging transportation. Located close to Angkor Wat and 10 min tuk tuk ride to downtown markets. Free tuk tuk ride from airport. Uses traditional decoration. Excellent for travelers who just need a place to sleep and put their bags. Breakfast was small but other great restaurants and cafes around.

Excellent friendly staff and beautiful traditional wood furnishings in communal areas.beds very comfortable too. Angkor watt not too far and they can arrange excursions for you. Can provide massage aswell

Lovely small hotel. Scrupulously clean with outstanding staff. Restaurant is so-so, but lots of excellent cafes close by are close by. The restaurant is great, however, for picking up a cold beer when you return from a hot day at the temples. The restaurant serves breakfast daily (included) and is very good with lots of choices. Conveniently located. A bargain - would return in a heartbeat!

The hotel has amazing woode Buddhist statues throughout the common areas. No amazing views but great location and close to Angkor Wat temple. The hotel is very clean. The beds are super, super comfortable. The room was spacious and has a safe for storing valuables. The staff are super helpful and try to accommodate all guest needs. Great value for the money. Also the hotel provides their own tuk tuks to assist with touring temples. Great breakfast provided in their restaurant.

Sitting between downtown and Angkor Temple. Not much view but clean, big, good house keeping and convinient. Mr Bunna is really good and helpful as the person in charge. The hotel has 2 entrances one facing the main road and the other on the back. The entrance on the back is new and that is where we stayed. With small pool and cozy walk ways makes the place feel local. Great place to stay.

The reception is pretty cool here, lots of wooden Buddhist statues and artefacts to have a look at. Very clean, comfy bed, safe box, wifi, salt pool at the front. There is an adjoining building for breakfast which was good. Short drive to Angkor Wat heritage site. There is a tuk tuk station just outside which is handy and close to other eateries. Staff very helpful and printed our boarding passes for us.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was spacious & clean, the staff are really helpful and friendly and you are as close to Angkor as you can be still being in the town. Breakfast was good too. It was great to cool off in the pool after a day in Cambodian humidity. Almost next door is the big box bar/resteraunt that provides really good local food at a great price. The hotel offers airport transfers for just $5

Stayed here for a week, kinda wish I'd stayed somewhere else. When I checked in I was on a floor with a group of very heavy smokers. Having just completed a detox it was pretty horrible inhaling strong stale smoke. I was assured that my room wouldn't smell that way but after a couple of mornings waking up with a weird taste in my mouth I knew that the smoke was obviously getting through the crack in my room door and making it into my room. Gentleman at reception was great and immediately helped me to move me to a different floor once I'd pointed out the issue which was good. There were various maintenance issues with both rooms I stayed in...leaky shower fawcet, leaking windows The thing that most perturbed me about my accommodation though was that the female reception crew questioned me whenever I saw her about where I was going, what was I doing, when would I be back etc (same with the tuk tuk driver). I'm a pretty independent person and I felt like I was being interrogated which was not nice. Location wise, there were a couple of ok cafes in the area.

We are picked up from airport by some lovely men. Then once at hotel were a little bombarded by, did we want to book this or that but we had been awake for about 24 hours. The hotel was good room big enough but no lighting for reading so we were happy we bought torches. Breakfast was included and the lady serving it was horrible. Watching tv or YouTube and forgetting to get our breakfast and then once she did it was cold. We had to remind her the last day and we were worried she may have spit in it, out of 5 breakfast 2 were cold 2 were warm and 1 was hot . It was too hard to tell her as she didn't was to talk or come near you bas really not a nice way to start day. The tuk tuk drive that took us to the temples was great but it was really disappointing that when it came to lunch we were guilted into eating at expensive restaurants as he got a free meal. We asked and pointed out a couple of different places he shook his head and said I don't get free meal . One day we asked him to sit with us as he was next table over and he did but when our bill came we had to pay for him. These meals were costing $50 USD even though we were only having fried rice, and 2 or 3 Khmer meals, which is more than what we would pay in Australia. We just felt like they were just taking advantage because we were on holiday and they all assume you are rich. I just want to clarify we didn't expect to get food dirt cheap but didn't expect to be ripped off either. We found a lovely French/Khmer restaurant that was yummy and a good price so we ate a lot there. Over all we had a great time but next time would have put our foot down with tuk tuk driver and chose our places and even would have bought his meal, would have hired a guide as book didn't explain enough, when listening to other guides around they would have been worth the money. This is just our experience and I hope it helps , happy travels
