The River Garden is a small hotel located on the River in a quiet part of town. The rooms are lovely, some with a balcony, most with updated modern showers. Ours had a charming garden pagoda just outside the window. The pool in the back is in an absolutely gorgeous garden setting. You feel like you are in a tropical...

I arrived at The River Garden tired and jaded and left this very special place totally refreshed. Every aspect was perfect. The food was superb - especially the local specialities. Their amok was the best by far that I had during my 3 week stay in Siem Reap. I joined a street food tour and a cooking class which were...

My husband and I spent just three nights in this lovely, garden filled gem of a small hotel. Just a 20 minute walk from the heart of the more tourist driven scene in Siem Reap, the location enabled us to experience a little more of the authentic Cambodian life. At our request, the hotel arranged for Jack, a local guide,...

My partner and I had a very enjoyable weeks stay at the River Garden.

Well, I will regard this as a great comment even though our ashtrays did not qualify as large enough. Perhaps our guests would like to conserve his health and smoke a little less!

A warm and friendly place, with excellent staff. If this does not convince you, the physical surroundings of the place will. We stayed in the Khmer Garden Cottage and adored the terrace space outside. Near the restaurant but hardly any or no noise. All cottages are actually set amidst a beautifully landscaped garden that comes with ponds, cats, ducks -...

Sometimes the mosquitos get a little bit friendly but we are set in amidst a unique jungle setting which makes us so special. Different times of the year present different challenges. It's heartening to know the mossies wern't so annoying that you would not return. ......... so we'll see you soon!

Thought this was a cute little boutique place to stay and very cute balconies attached to the room. All amenities were very clean and good wifi service throughout hotel. The reason why I'm giving this a 3 is because the noise around the hotel was unbelievable. It ruins the serenity you feel whilst there. Dogs barking continuously every night, weird...
