Hotel Restaurant

Your rooftop terrace doubles as a private dining space for two. There's a whim-catering chef on call, ready to whip up anything from a champagne breakfast to midnight desserts.

Hotel Bar

Linger over a drink in Linga Bar. Located on the other side of the alleyway, the hotel's welcoming bar draws a mixed crowd to its alfresco couches and dimly lit nooks for cocktails and cruisy tunes. 

Last orders

Your call, though Linga Bar stops pouring at 1am.

Room service

Take that mobile phone you're handed at check-in, then order snacks, meals and drinks around the clock. (Options are limited for pre-dawn breakfasts.)

Eat, drink, see, do: local favourites and more…

Local restaurants

Sharing the same shophouse, Aha (The Alley, Siem Reap; +855 (0)63 965 501) is a sleek, Scandinavian-style dining room with a transparent kitchen at its heart, producing creative Euro-Khmer tasting plates, such as grilled beef with green papaya pickle. 

 

At nearby Smith stay Viroth's Hotel (658 Wat Bo Village, Street 23, Siem Reap; +855 (0)63 761 720), dine on authentic Khmer dishes in the romantic rooftop restaurant.

 

Sample fish amok (a light, turmeric-laced curry served in a banana leaf), stir-fried beef and basil or fresh spring rolls at Khmer Kitchen Restaurant (Mondul I, Sangkat Svay Dangkum, Siem Reap; +855 (0)63 964 154).

 

Set in a traditional Cambodian house, Cuisine Wat Damnak (Wat Damnak Village, Sala Kamrek Commune, Siem Reap; +855 (0)63 965 491) delivers affordable tasting menus of Khmer classics.

Local bars

Sister bar to the rooftop Nest in Bangkok, Nest (Sivutha Street; +855 (0)63 966 381) is Siem Reap at its most stylish. Order a designer cocktail, then slip onto a sleigh bed and soak up the alfresco atmosphere.

The One Hotel Angkor

On The Passage, Old Market Area, Siem Reap

The One Hotel Angkor is located in the bustling Old Market area on the restaurant-lined Passage.

Planes

Fly into Siem Reap International Airport (www.cambodia-airports.com) from regional gateways including Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. For connections, try Singapore Airlines (www.singaporeairlines.com) or Thai Air (www.thaiairways.com). It’s about a 40-minute flight from Cambodian capital Phnom Penh. The One Hotel is just six kilometres from the airport and return car transfers are included in the room rate. The drive to the hotel will give you your first glimpse of Angkor Wat.

Automobiles

We're not too disappointed that self-drive is banned, as the lack of road rules makes for some hairy motoring moments. Buses ply the streets to Phnom Penh from US$6 and take six hours. If you want to explore, ask your hotel to line up a reliable driver, or take a spin in the local remorques (tuk tuks), which start at just US$15 a day.

Other

It's a five- to six-hour ride on the fast boat from Phnom Penh and Siem Reap via Tonlé Sap river and lake. Luxury cruise operators also run between Ho Chi Minh City, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

The One Hotel Angkor

By Mr & Mrs Smith.

Every hotel is visited personally by members of our team and given the Smith seal of approval. As soon as our anonymous reviewers have returned from a stay at this petite retreat, a full account of their Cambodian escape will be with you. In the meantime, just to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick postcard from the One Hotel Angkor in Siem Reap...

Could it be that we've found the ultimate boutique hotel? Secluded down a buzzy alleyway in the centre of Siem Reap's Old Market area lies the One Hotel Angkor, a single-room abode in a romantic restored shophouse.

An art-filled lobby leads to the two-storey suite, with a bespoke king-size bed and cool concrete bathroom on the first floor, and a Jacuzzi, rain shower and dining area on the rooftop terrace. 

If you can't squeeze into this solo space, sister property Hotel Be Angkor shares the same lobby and offers three design-savvy rooms, each decked out by a different local artist.
