Little Oasis in outskirts of Siem Reap
Posted May 26, 2016 on Hotels
The Spirit Palace Hotel was like little oasis in a fairly rough part of the city. It is located outside of the central business and tourist district and you can definitely tell. Walking from the hotel to anywhere wasn't really an option. Fortunately, the hotel provided us with our own personal chauffeur, who happily drove us to all the places we wanted to go.
It seemed like we were the only guests staying at the hotel at the time, so the service was excellent. Everyone at the hotel spoke good English to us, which was a pleasant surprise.
The pool was nice and clean. The restaurant food was delicious with quality ingredients. The courtyard was lush and green.
The room was huge, which was nice, but it did make the small air conditioner work hard to keep the temperature comfortable. The bathroom could have used a little work - the shower stall was not in the best repair and could have used a small shelf to store toiletries on. The bedside lamps didn't work, so lighting was either full power or none at all.
For the price I found this hotel and excellent value.
