Hotel Review: Le Meridien Angkor

If you are looking for a hotel in the Cambodian hotspot of Angkor Wat in the city of Siem Reap, the Le Meridien Angkor is just the place.

A short 15 minutes from Siem Reap International Airport, this hotel is located within close proximity to downtown Siem Reap and the hotspot of Pub Street, and a short tuk tuk ride to the area’s famous Angkor Wat Temple complex. This makes it easy to pop out at night for an evening in town, or explore the temples and surrounding area all for a small price of a tuk tuk ride, safe and secure.

Keeping with the traditional Le Meridien European design, the ambience of the Le Meridien Angkor is the perfect balance of this with a local and contemporary Cambodian style.
