Going to Siem Reap to celebrate my 30th birthday I wanted our hotel to be nice and after experiencing some difficulties is finding available accomodation we were directed to the Pavillon Indochine Hotel and am thrilled that we were. It surpassed all of my expectations!
Due to some unexpected changes in our flight schedule at the last minute I emailed the hotel on several occassions and each time received a prompt response informing me that they would be able to accomodate us. As such when we arrived in Siem Reap we were met by their friendly driver who smoothly transfered us to the hotel. Throughout our stay we could not find a fault in any of the staff who were always friendly, accomodating, efficient and ready with a smile. It really did make our stay all the more personal.
The hotel and our room was well maintained and clean with all the expected luxueries and a few more: a pool set admist lush foilage, each room gets its our little alfresco seating area with a view of the pool outside their door, breakfast included (the basics), spa treatments, and so forth. Our room was large, clean and more then comfortable with house clean doing a wonderful job each day.
The hotel is ideally situated being one of the closest to Angkor Vat, about a 5 min tuk-tuk ride. We also discovered that it sits pretty much between the temples and the city centre about equal distances away.
Though originally tempted to walk to the temples and other attractions we soon changed our minds given that most of the roads are in full sun and the humidity tires you easily. As such we organised for a tuk-tuk driver to take us around the temples and an aconditioned car to take us to the temples further away (some roads are pretty much dirt tracks with pot-holes and though tuk-tuks are practical for better maintained roads near the city centre and short trip it does get dusty, hot and uncomfortable for longer trips).
Our tuk-tuk driver turned out to be one of the loveliest person we have ever met and so organised for him to be our driver thoughout our stay. Not only was he always friendly and accomodating but kindly explained to us aspects of local history and life. Never once did he let us down: in taking us where we wanted to go, being on time and in one case of sightseeing he was our uncomplaining driver from 5am till 9:30pm (during longer stays at particular sites he does head off but never fails to be waiting for you at agreed times). I can't recommend him enough:
Name: Teb Socheat
Overall I could not have wished for a better birthday and cannot recommend this place highly enough.
