This hotel in which we stayed is 4 star but it was right in the town of Siem Reap and we found it very nice-small with a good restaurant. The name is Ta Prohn Hotel

We also stayed at the Ta Prahn and found it completely acceptable. We had booked through Diethelm Tours and our guide was through them. Don't have his name but he was outstanding.

The info I gave was off business cards I received while there. You will find the hotel Ta Prohm but the phone and fax no. I notice are different than the internet. I did not find on the internet the tour guide that I mentioned to you,but Savon is excellent. The Vongratna Uch is not listed on the internet. Sorry about that.

Mari, I'm glad to hear your review of the Angkor Village. I have reservations there for December. I've heard wonderful things about it through the travelers grapevine.

I wasn't too thrilled with Angkor Village when I stayed there last year. It came highly recommended by a travel agent friend, but we were very disappointed in our room. Very basic accomodmations and the walls were thin (unfortunate since there was construction going on during our stay). I suppose there's a certain charm to the style of the place -- little bungalows surrounded by gardens -- but I thought they could have done more to make the rooms more comfortable, especially since they were charging so much compared with other hotels (not including the Grand). Also, be sure to bring your mosquito repellent since they didn't have any mosquito netting around the bed (and it was needed -- I got multiple bites!). The hotel was building a new addition, so those rooms may be better. Also, they may have renovated the older rooms. I have to say, though, that the staff was wonderful and charming.

Also, I heard the Sofitel is supposed to be nice. It was being built when I was there, and I hear it has opened already. Good luck and have a great time!

Judy, Which room type did you stay in? I understand there is a regular, a deluxe and the suites (which sleep 4). I've heard from others that the regular rooms are pretty basic, but that the deluxe were nicer.

kathie/judy--

our disparate experiences might have something to do w/ the type of room. i was w/ a friend and my parents, so we had a two-storey bungalow--very spacious, w/ beautiful traditional and modern teak furniture, a lounge/tv area, two beds upstairs and two down. only drawback was that there was one bathroom. overall it was a lovely suite (i assume this was the 'suite'), and since we were 4 people, the $150 rate seemed a bargain.

i sympathize w/ judy, tho--any mosquito in any room in southeast asia is cause for major stress!
