So the ride to Siem Reap was painful, but the hotel I am staying at made up for that.
Really lucked out on hotel accomodations. I was supposed to stay at a different hotel (which didn’t rate too favorably from the comments I read on a hotel website from people who had recently stayed there) but on the way to Siem Reap our guide told us that we had to change hotels.
Sure there are plenty of hotels to choose from if you do come here and depending on your budget you might want to choose cheaper accomodations. However for 70.00 a night, you can’t go wrong with the Casa Angkor. A very friendly and helpful staff (with really good English skills), spacious rooms, a great shower, a lovely open-air dining room, gift shop and just a ten-minute tuk-tuk ride to the old market area.
