After reading mixed reviews we decided to try the Angkor Spirit Palace for a short stay in Siem Reap at the end of our Cambodian adventure. Firstly I must say that we were dissapointed in this place, it is in need of some money to fix the place up. The staff were freindly and helpfull and the free Tuk Tuk service was good, although you felt obliged to pay some money for the service. The food was terrible, as was the breakfast, what really got under my skin was they did not offer juice as part of the breakfast, coffee or tea only ( both luke warm) so if you had kids ( mine 8,10 and 12) warm tea or coffee was not the best option, so we bought juice, were everywhere else in Cambodia its free at breakfast.
Some renovations were going on in the room next to us, and during the day the noise and dust from them cutting tiles was a bit annoying, but saying that we were out mostly. Our shower basin did not drain the water away , so if you wanted a shower straight after someone , you had to stand in their water!
Many small items around the place need fixing, things like exposed electrical wiring around the pool area, some just repaired with tape, but still outside, good chance of a accident there.
I think the staff are trying, but it's up to they owners to spend some money on the place if they want to compete with all the new Boutique Hotels popping up in Siem Reap.
In saying all this the rooms were big, a bit dark though, I would only stay here as a last resort, at least until they fix the place. It cold be a real gem for someone with a bit of go and forsight.
