Convenient & quiet area to stay in Siem Reap

Jump to last reply

I'm overwhelmed with all of the choices of lodging (and I've been looking at suggestions from people here). I've read here that Siem Reap is turning into a little Las Vegas feel (yuk!) type area with non-stop hotels and tourists. I've already figured out that we do not want to be on a main hotel strip type area, and we don't want to be in the chaos of Pub Street. Now I am trying to figure out which area is where we want to stay.

Do we want to be north of the downtown towards Angkor Wat? Do we want to be east of the river? Do we want to be in a location where we can always walk if we want to get to the restaurants? Is a place slightly further out where we'd probably need a tuk tuk most of the time a better choice? Normally we prefer to be in walkable locations, but maybe that isn't the best choice in this city.

We've visited developing countries before and are fine with having to walk down a dusty alley or two to get to our accommodation, and we are not afraid of being in an area that is more local than tourist.

We'd like quiet (if that is possible in Asia) yet fairly convenient as far as location.

Can those of you who have visited please give me suggestions about which general area I should be targeting in my search? We are looking at a stay for six nights, and I don't want to get it wrong and be stuck.

Thanks much.
