I cried. I had found this place somehow on the internet, seen pictures of it and insisted that this was the place that we were going to stay (because of the design & decoration), right in the 'Old Market area' of Siem Reap. This is where the restaurants, bars & shops are concentrated, from what I could see, for the tourists. Action aplenty in this part of town. Anyway, even though I had seen what this place looked like in pictures, I cried when we arrived in the hotel room - with joy, of course (I also shed a tear when we finally laded on the tarmac and when I saw my first piece of ancient wall. I'm like that). What a beautiful oasis for the sweaty traveler. You will no doubt be in Siem Reap to visit Angkor Wat, but if you are lucky enough to visit some of the more far flung temples and lovely fishing/jungle villages, you might feel like you have found some kind of paradise. I mean a paradise in general with this lovely and friendly country, let alone with the Terrasse des Elephants. The staff were so lovely and the rooms were decorated in a 'temple carving' style. We wanted to come home to Australia and redecorate immediately! The rooftop pool and garden were such a special place to relax and enjoy reflecting on our adventures from the day, whilst overlooking a bit of action down below on the main street. We stayed here for 8 nights and loved every minute. If I came back to Siem Reap again, I would not look to stay at any other hotel.
