There’s a super-abundance of accommodation in Siem Reap – although it always pays to reserve in advance if you’re set on staying in a particular place, since the more popular establishments can fill up fast. At the top end of the scale the city offers some of Asia’s most alluring accommodation, from colonial landmarks such as the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor through to super-chic contemporary boutique resorts including Amansara and La Résidence d’Angkor and more intimate hideways Sala Lodges and Angkor Village. There’s also a huge supply of comfortable, if not always particularly characterful, mid-range hotels, and plenty of inexpensive and often excellent guesthouses, though really cheap beds for under $10 a night are relatively thin on the ground, and most rooms come with a/c, whether you want it or not. Accommodation is scattered all over town. Many cheaper places can be found around Psar Chas, which puts you in prime position for the city’s eating, drinking and nightlife, while there are further clusters of guesthouses east of the river, particularly in the little enclave around Street 20. Larger and more upmarket establishments (including an increasing number of big five-star international chains) tend to be located further north of the centre along Airport and Angkor Wat roads.
