      Historical Traveler Reviews City River Hotel Siem Reap

      Pleasant stay, good service


      Stayed 4 D 3 N at hotel in mid-september 06.

      Service staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful including the manager Mr Pol Pean.Standard room is adequately large and clean.

      Hotel faces Siem Reap river, and a short 10 minutes walk will bring hotel guests to the Old and New markets in the city centre.

      Not too far from the lost city of Angkor with the ancient Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, etc within easy reach by car or for budget travellers via Tuk tuk.

      Definitely a good place to stay and is strongly recommended.

      Great value hotel


      Booked online for 4 nights in early August, taxi was waiting for us at Siem Reap airport (don't forget your $20 plus a passport photo for the visa on arrival - nice new airport by the way with good range of shops in international departure lounge), but no record of our booking when we arrived at hotel. Also, free airport pickup only applies if you book directly with hotel (which we hadn't). Anyway, soon sorted out and we got a good sized airconditioned room overlooking the Bopha Angkor hotel opposite. Hotel and room facilities excellent, staff very helpful, Asian/Western breakfast adequate if not particularly exciting, restaurant fine for a light lunch. Easy to walk to old market area, tuktuks wait on the corner for longer trips. Wat Bo temple is close by and well worth a visit. Although we arrived late in the evening the hotel managed to organise a car plus guide for visits next day to the temples. No pool but you can buy a pass to the Bopha Angkor pool for $3 (beautiful lush gardens etc but the beer's cheaper at City River!) . We had absolutely no complaints with our stay -excellent value.

      Just like i hoped


      i booked my reservation online but due to a last minute change i never got a confirmation i got off the plane and met a taxi driver who offered to be my guide he asked if i had a reservation and when i said i wasn't sure he took me to another hotel which charged $80 i decided to continue to the city river and i'm glad i did it was nice and clean they had the reservation the room had a safe and refrigerator the restaurant was fine the location was great i could walk to the market nearby my guide was great angkor wat was a great experience but be careful going down the steps it doesn't have a pool but i was out most of the 2 days i was there anyway it's not a 5 star but you can't beat the price for value


      Good budget hotel


      Nice, clean, basic budget hotel with no thrills. The room was decent size and very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient for walking around town at night. The only downside is that there was no pool - - this probably is not a big deal unless you come during a more humid season (e.g., May). If you are looking for a cheap but decent hotel room (not a hostel) with your own bath and satellite TV, then this is the place to stay in Siem Reap.

      Excellent Arrangement!!


      We booked for the 5 days 4 nights travel package with the hotel. Everything came out to be exactly the same as mentioned in the itinerary. All meals are great -> a great variety of Thai food, Vietnamese food and the local Khmer food. Breakfast provided in the hotel is excellent, especially the fried noodle!! Rooms are clean, not to mentioned that the staffs are really helpful and friendly. Paul, the manager tried his very best to fulfill our requests. The whole trip is very well-arranged. Everything, from airport transfer, accommodation, food, temples visits to tour guide are being taken care of. We have no single complain!

      Nice hotel, great location


      My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. It's right on the river and walking distance to the old market and the main city park. The rooms were clean and fairly nice. The staff was nice but the clerk wasn't at all knowledgeable. He didn't seem to have a clue where any restaurants or other places were. His only advice was to go to the old market. The lady was there seemed to know more, but wasn't around as much.

      Fairly good free breakfast.

      The bathroom was fine although it was impossible to keep the shower an temperature. It would go from icy to scalding every 30 seconds.

      Good, clean and inexpensive hotel


      The City River hotel is perfectly fine. I tried to get into the Bopha Angkor, but it was booked. City River was a good alternative. In fact, it is right next to Bopha Angkor. For $3, City River guests can use the pool at Bopha Angkor. Room at City River was clean. TV, hot water, fridge all worked well. Staff was excellent and very helpful. They have safety deposit boxes to lock the wad of US dollars you will need to bring to Cambodia. City River also arranged an English speaking guide for me. He was excellent. His name is Muon Sophanna. If you go Siem Reap -- ask for him. His English was very good, he knew his stuff, and was a lot of fun too.

      Good Value for Price - Comfortable Accomodation in Siem Reap


      I spent recently one night at the City River Hotel during my visit at the archeological site of Angkor. This hotel afforded me a comfortable accomodation at a very reasonable price.

      The hotel is conveniently located, on the side of the river and at short walk distance, or just few minutes "tuk tuk" or taxi ride, from the town center. The room I stayed at - a Superior-type Room - was large and clean with all standard comfort of a Western European (good) three stars hotel. The hotel staff was warm, friendly and spoke a very decent english. Buffet breakfast, included in the room rate, was good enough with service starting at 6:00 am meeting my need of departing for the visit to the ruins very early in the morning. On a negative side, the mattress was quite hard, air conditioning a little noisy and towels a little cheap.

      I have never stayed at other hotels in Siem Reap to say whether this hotel was above or below average for its category but I can say that I would certainly return to this hotel as well as would recommend it to other travellers looking for a no-frills, comfortable accomodation at a very reasonable price.

      City river hotel recommended


      nice hotel. the rooms are modern and in great condition. the room rate includes a pretty good buffet breakfast as well. The nightlife and shopping in the 'pub street'/old town area is not too far away (a pleasant walk). No swimming pool here but overall a great place to stay in Siem Reap.

This monumental fortified city is encircled by a 100m wide moat and is famed for the huge statue heads that glare down from every angle. It was established in the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII and is in the Bayon style. The faces on the 23m towers are impressive …
