Town : Siem Reap


The boom of building hotels in Siem Reap has not ended yet. Large hotels are springing up, mainly concentrated along Route 6 on the road to the airport.
Even old ones have been renovated and most of the budget class have attached bathrooms and TV with $4-5. Really good value.

The main guest-house areas
1) Route 6 direction airport near the junction with Vithei Siwatha
2) Vithei Sivatha, in the vicinity of the central Phsa Chas market;
3) Wath Bo St which is just off Route 6 east of the river, direction Phsa Leu market.
All three of these areas are good central locations. Most of the GHs are family run & will offer food.
At peak times such as regional holidays, Siem Reap hotels can get very busy.
Some GHs have connections with GH's in Phnom Penh, so you can reserve a room & you will be met on arrival from the boat/truck. If you know where you want to stay, just look for a driver holding up a sign with the name of the GH of your choice. Be aware that you are paying extra for these services. The cheapest price is always obtained by direct bargaining with trucks etc.
