Stayed here for 4 nights and would highly recommend this hotel. The staff from management down to the cleaners all said hello and without fail, were smiling at all times. You stay there long enough and they will know you by name.

Room was very clean at all times, even better than a lot of the1st world hotels i have stayed in. The air conditioning in the rooms was effective and you really noticed the difference once you stepped into the corridor.

Restaurant had lovely meals at a good price. My breakfast was included in my package but choices there were a fraction limited for me.

The barmen on level 6 by the pool were great and the cocktails were cheap and made extremely well

Lovely friendly staff and a nice central location.

However, the inclusive breakfast was pretty disappointing. And the hotel itself was pretty charmless. Comfortable enough, but a little bit shabby in places.

I wouldn't not recommend it - it will certainly do the job, but I'm sure there are better options around Siem Reap.

One of the main attractions for us had been the swimming pool on top. And it certainly offered great views. However, it was very heavily chlorinated, to the point where my kids wanted to come out after about 5 minutes. And on the 3 nights we spent there, staff were rebuilding the decking area immediately around the pool throughout daylight hours. Whilst this didn't render the area off limits for guests (this is Cambodia!), it kind of ruined the ambience with lots of hammering and sawing going on!

We stay in the City River for 4 nights and were very happy with service we got. The room was comfortable and well serviced. The best part was the friendly staff who really worked hard to make our stay sucessful.
The hotel is close to the central markets and other attractions and only a $2 tuk-tuk ride from the main museum and ceramics workshop, but far enough away that some peace could be had.
The restaurant meal we had was very good and the breakfasts filling.
The ambiance was charming with lots of wood and Cambodian themed areas.

My husband and I stayed at the City River Hotel for 4 nights and we had a fabulous stay. The rooms were clean & quiet, breakfast was good, the pool was refreshing and the staff went beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. They helped us with travel within the city and we also booked two amazing tours. One was a boat ride through the river fishing villages which included a lovely lunch on their River Boat (www.taraboat.com). Amazing hotel to stay in!!

When I first walked into this hotel, it reminded me of a hotel that would have been really popular in the 1960's, or even the 70's. There is a form of "grandure" about it that I can't quite put my finger on. I don't know if it's the retro styled foyer with flowers and old signage for the bathrooms, or if it's the design of the building itself (it's quite a large hotel with long, dark corridors). Whatever it is, it made me feel like I'd stepped back in time. But in a good way though! The rooms are very spacious and have everything you need (air conditioning, wifi internet, mini bar, safety deposit box, laundry bag, nice big balcony). The bathroom is very nice also and has a bath (always a bonus for me). Just be careful when you are taking a shower, as the water tends to run along the sides and out onto the floor (this happened in our room 360). There is a roof top pool which is very nice. The water was quite "toxic" while we were there (too much chlorine?) so don't open your eyes! It was however very refreshing after a day out temple hiking. They also have a bar there if you'd like a drink, and there is a massage centre on the 6th floor. Breakfast is very nice and plentiful, with lots of different food to keep everyone happy. The restaurant they serve breakfast in is very nice (aesthetically). I'm not sure what the food is like as we went to the night markets for dinner. Speaking of night markets, they're just down the road from the hotel too. I'd say it took us around 10 minutes to walk there, and it was around 2 minutes on a tuk tuk; depending on traffic. Finally to end my review, the staff here are very accommodating and welcoming. They are always smiling, and are happy to help you where ever possible. We were very happy staying here and had no negative experience whatsoever. A recommended hotel to those looking for affordable comfort.
