Reviewed 9 December 2011

This is my first visit to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Although the hotel is not in downtown, we did not feel it as such, as we had our bus waiting for us all the time.The breakfast in the hotel was good, except that it had too much catering towards Korean food, probably because the were almost 90% Korean guests at that time.
Room Service was very prompt,
Overall we enjoyed our 4 nights stay there

Room Tip: Rooms facing poolside are good

This was my second stay at the Royal Empire Hotel and I enjoyed it as much as my first visit. I like the fact that it is not part of a faceless hotel chain and has some Cambodian charm. The hotel is not in 'downtown' Siem Reap but is only a short tuk tuk ride away (approx USD1.50 depending on your bargaining prowess!). I like the fact that it is out of the main tourist area so is not as frenetic.

The hotel appears to cater to a lot of Asian tour groups; this time of the year appeared to be more popular than when I visited in February 2010. The breakfast buffet has a lot of variety but if you appear at the same time as a group it can be a bit hectic. Having said that, my room was always clean and in great condition and when you return to the hotel after a hot, humid day of touring/shopping you are always greeted with a friendly smile from the staff.

I only ate one meal in the restaurant on this trip (lunch) which was fabulous (Amok). Whilst more expensive that you could get in Pub Street or the Alley, the additional cost is well worth it.

The hotel is next to a small supermarket and a market so you can get some supplies if you wish. There is internet access in the lobby, the only drawback with this is the design of the desks and unless you are under four foot tall, it is nearly impossible to place your legs comfortably.

Having said that, I would definitey stay here again.

Room Tip: I was offered a room overlooking the pool but chose room 520 at the front of the hotel. Because of...

Got it on sale, paid less than 50 US a night with breakfast . Its a little out of the way (airport rd.) but there are these trikes you can get at anytime for between a buck or 2 to bring you to town(5 to 10 minute ride). The pool was nice but the gym was not too good(not that we used the gym after all the walking) rooms were comfortable and decent. Food was really good and our teenage son to this day still tells me we should have eaten at the hotel more.

My husband and I have stayed here for 4 days.
All staffs at hotel are nice and kept clean the room and pool always.
Their buffet style break fast was also good, especially pho(soup noodle) is tasty!
I enjoyed it every morning.

The disappointing thing were credit card authority system did not work smoothly and it took so long time to verify.I think it 's better to pay cash than a credit card and another disappointing thing was shower ’ water temperature is a little bit low. I couldn't adjust the temperature.

This hotel's location is a little far away from down town but it is no problem.
We can take tuk tuk(Taxi) at very low fee.

We stayed at Royal Empire Hotel from 17 July to 23 July. The hotel was very quiet and very clean. We enjoyed our stay there. The hotel staff are very polite. Always ready to help you. Same goes to the bell boy too. The room we got was with balcony top floor facing the pool. nice scenery. After a long day tour we really had a pleasant and peaceful sleep. The room is cleaned everday without fail. The breakfast is everage. They need to have more varities. We had our dinner at the hotel. Just for once. just to try out. I had fish and chips. My gf had salamon. The cost about about US 30. Just average. nothing great. You can get better food for lesser at the pub street. Only downfall of the hotel the food. The pool and gym was clean and clean too. The hotel is at airport road. There is always tuk tuk waiting outside the hotel. The fare is $2-$3 US dollars. We could go to Pub street just in a few minutes. Overall a good stay for us. Whether we would stay there again? Not sure. Maybe we will try other hotel near to the town.
