Community Residence Siem Reap

Reviewed 1 June 2012

I had high expectations from friends that had stayed at Journeys on a previous trip. They were all exceeded. Last minute tour changes "no problem", amazing tour guide, sweetest driver ever, great food, and I can't say enough about the amazing staff! I became a little teary when they all came out to the driveway at 9:30 p.m. to bid farewell and wish me safe travels. Wow.

Stayed: May 2012, travelled with friends

This hotel is a wonderful oasis of calm in Siem Reap. I have stayed here twice and will return again next year. Highly recommended.

Positives:
1. The American owners are great and are very knowledgeable about the local area.
2. Very friendly and helpful staff.
3. Large clean rooms with nice bathrooms. The hotel recently expanded to 10 rooms.
4. Great pool -- which is really important in steamy Siem Reap. When I am there I swim every day.
5. Free laundry service every day!
6. Great breakfast.
7. The hotel has their own travel company and their own guides, so they can arrange tours for you anywhere in SE Asia. I have used them to travel in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. All of their guides are excellent.
8. The owners of the hotel also built a non-proffit community center next door. They teach the local children how to wash their hands, brush their teeth, read, speak English, etc. They also provide micro-loans to small local businesses. It's a great operation. If you stay at the hotel, go visit the community center and ask what you can do to help. Our group pooled our money and bought a fresh water drinking well for a remote village. We planned this ahead of time and we were able to go visit the well and meet the families that use it. It was an amazing experience.

Negatives:
1. There are not many interesting sites or restaurants within walking distance, but the hotel has free tuk-tuk rides into town every evening.

A wonderful little hotel that is really committed to making the world a better place.

We've booked our flight in January but we had no idea where to stay...2 weeks before I google some hotels in Siem Reap and the first one displayed was JW Siem Reap, probably because of the very positive feedback from international guests...Normally, I won't go for the very first option, but considering the comments on tripadvisor, I said :"let's give it a try!"
This appeared to be an excellent choice, we spent 8 nights with our 2 sons (4 and 1y) and they didn't want to go back home...bedding was of very high comfort, food excellent (at decent price...)....AND...what a staff!!! I will always remember this very nice waitress who made our breakfast a very enjoyale moment...also, we stayed at the family bungalow and had the impression to be at home with our private pool...
Nice rooms, good food, very helpful staff, good location to the temples...I'm still struggling to identify something to improve...Maybe one thing...the kids club might need some kind of refresher very soon...(with DVD inside the boxes...;-)
Thanks again to Claudia, Leon and all the team! We'll be back!

We booked this property as part of our Journeys Within tour of Siem Reap so I really didn't know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise! The grounds are lush and the pool refreshing after a hot day of touring. The property started out as a small bed and breakfast and recently expanded to 10 rooms. Our room was spacious with all the amenities needed including free laundry. It is about a 10 minute tuk tuk ride into town and the tuk tuk is complimentary between 6 and 9 pm. You can order about anything you want for breakfast. The restaurant is open for dinner as well and the food is superb - serving both Khmer, as well as western cuisine. I can't say enough about the service and the friendliness of the staff. Why stay in town at a big hotel with all the tour groups when you can be here!!

My best friend and I stayed here earlier this month and it was perfection.
The staff is so genuine, so helpful and so happy to be a part of this fine property.
Value added details like complimentary laundry and one's own private tuktuk
for the short trip into the city in the evenings made exploring a piece of cake!
