I chose "Advaya Residence" because it has a pool, a round-trip transfer from the airport and that the rooms are not too narrow. It was a tropical southern country journey, so I first looked for a place with a pool. In that case, it was not too big, it was not too small, we prioritized the sense of size that we thought comfortable. Next, because it was a trip with elderly parents, it was also a point that there was a roundtrip from the airport and regular mobility services so that it would not be too much with the heat and the unfamiliar land. Finally, since it was a three people journey, the space of the room surprisingly becomes a neck when 3 beds are reached. Even if there are three beds, we found that there is enough room so we chose this hotel.
What is the exterior of the hotel? Check entrance and reception
The street in front of the hotel. There seems to be an area in the middle of development. The road in the center of the city is asphalt paved, but the street the hotel is facing was still a dirt road. However, I had no impression of it being scary. On the same street there were several petit hotels with a similar atmosphere.
Hotel exterior. It was dry season when I visited, but it did not feel sandy, and it seemed like the hotel was being taken care of. Early in the morning, they were washing the car for pickup.
Lobby and front desk appearance
State of the lobby
Ceiling fans were also installed in the lobby.
There were games such as Othello and Genga on the table in the lobby.
I got a welcome drink, too.
There were two personal computers installed in the lobby. In addition, a tank of mineral water was prepared for replenishment, it was able to use both cold water and hot water.
There was a staircase behind the front desk. There is no elevator in the building, so there are stairs up and down to the pool and breakfast venue.
Stairs to the room
When going up to the guest room with the stairs, tables and chairs were set up in the hallway.

Room entrance door
When entering the room, there was a card key slot immediately on the right hand side.
Rooms, bathrooms and toilets were all spacious. Bed linen and towels were cleaned every day and were comfortable. However, usability was a bit inconvenient. For example, I had the impression that it was more comfortable if there was no clock, the ringing sound of the installed phone is surprisingly loud, and there were things that needed improvement.
There were two double size beds and one single size bed. They were comfortable. Two soft pillows and one cushion were prepared.
There was a telephone, a memo set, and a television program guide on the bedside table. However, the TV program guide was hard to understand.
There was a table and two chairs at the foot of the bed.
There was a TV set opposite the bed. There was a desk and a chair under the television, and there was a closet beside it.
There was a cafe corner on the desk.

View from the room
There is no veranda in the guest room, but when leaving the room, tables and chairs were prepared in the common part of the landing. From here you can see the pool and the terrace of the breakfast venue. You can see crowdedness in advance. I think that it was good to be able to check the congestion situation beforehand. It seemed that smoking is allowed in this area. Strong sunlight shown during the day, but in the night the wind came through and it was comfortable.
There was a bathtub and a shower space on the right side of the sink and a toilet on the left side.
There is a bathtub large enough to extend your feet. However, there is considerable height from the floor, so caution is necessary when entering and leaving. There was no slip mat. The temperature control is also comfortable, and the water pressure was perfect. However, switching to the shower felt weaker.
There was a fixed rain shower in front of the bathtub. There was plenty of hot water, so it was comfortable. Even if three people continued to use it, hot water did not run out.
Shampoo and a body soap were prepared on the shelf in the shower space. I used what I brought, but the shower gel has a sweet scent of southern country style.
There was also a hair dryer.
The toilet is washed with water. In the restaurant in the city, there is a place to throw away used toilet paper in the garbage box next to the toilet because the pipes get clogged.
Soap was prepared on the sink.
Amenities were also on the washbasin. Amenities included toothbrush, toothpaste, cotton swab, shower cap and a comb.
Closet and Safety Box
There was a closet beside the desk.
In the closet there was a bathrobe, slippers and a safety deposit box. Half the shelves, there was enough storage space. The other half was able to store things with a length, so I was able to store my backpack as well.
The safety box was a common type that sets the PIN.
The staff explained to us how to use the safety box from the time we were first shown in to the room.
Mini bar / cafe
There was also a cafe corner. At the cafe corner, there were an electric kettle, two coffee cups and two glasses, instant coffee and tea bags. Electric kettle is very hot on the side, so you need to be careful when using it. A large water bottle is charged for water, but the small water bottle prepared for the number of people were free. There was explanation to replenish from the water server at the front. In addition, there were also nuts and etc for a fee.
A small refrigerator was also installed.
In the refrigerator, beer, carbonated drinks and mineral water were provided for a fee.

Restaurants in the hotel
On the 2nd floor (1st floor in the field), there is a restaurant called "Advaya Café".
Guest room Restaurant seen from the front corridor (2nd floor part)
We had breakfast here, but we can eat here for lunch and dinner as well. When it is troublesome to go out to town, it is very useful. We had Khmer dish that was recommended by the staff, and it was delicious. Western cuisines were also prepared.
Although it is a buffet style, you can order a warm cuisine by checking this form. You can choose from two egg dishes, noodles, rice porridge, pancake and so on.
Facilities and services in the hotel
There was an outdoor pool open of about 3m by 5m in size. It can be used from morning till 10 pm. Eating and drinking prohibition, and no jumping in. Depending on the location, depth is different, so you need to be careful. The deep part seems to be over 2 meters deep.
There was a sunshade and a deck chair on the poolside. Bath towels were also provided.
As I lay down I looked at the sky and enjoyed the clouds flowing. The swimming pool also has a toilet and shower facilities.
Because there is a pool being surrounded by the building of the guest room, we could not see the sunset. Temperature was high during the day, sunshine was strong, so the pool at night is the best when your body is tired from walking. I felt refreshed. As I looked up, there was a slightly starry sky. Whether there were many guests going out in the evening, I was able to use the pool all the time all alone. It was in November so it was not yet busy. The pool's jet seems to stop unless there are customers. When I used the pool, I immediately switched on and I was able to feel a detailed response.
There were two Mac desktops in the lobby, and also a printer.
You can receive a spa menu of the massage shop tied in the hotel room.
You can also apply for various ruins tours at the hotel.
There was also a bicycle lending service at the hotel. There is also a laundry service in addition to 3 dollars per kilometer. It was convenient to put all casual clothes together in a bag and to be able to dump them all out.
Hotel surroundings environment
I saw a state of development in progress. The road is not asphalt paved. There was a building in the middle of building just next door, and I could hear the sound of construction in the morning. There is no problem during the day, but you should be careful at night. Because there are no street lights and no traffic lights, we recommend traveling by car or tuk-tuk. There are no eateries in the vicinity. There is a facility teaching yoga across the street. Tourists who brought a mattress from early morning were participating.

Staff & Customers
Overall, the staff were nice. Everyone was smiling. When I saw the morning sun of Angkor Wat, I left the accommodation at 4:30. The staff was waiting at the reception and made me breakfast. I communicated with them in English
I went there during dry season of November, and there were many elderly couples staying. There seems to be about 20 rooms in the whole hotel, so it was never noisy. Because there were many elderly people, it had a relaxing atmosphere. I often saw people chatting happily with the staff.
It took about 20 minutes by car from Siem Reap Airport, it took about 30 minutes by tuk tuk. There are no restaurants in the surroundings, but there was a small shop in front of us and there were snacks and cup noodles. There are daily necessities and tobacco, too, and usability was good. If you use tuk-tuk for movement, I think security is not a problem, but I was worried about walking at night. There are no street lights and no traffic lights. If you go to pub streets where souvenir shops and restaurants are lining up, it seems that it is about 5 minutes by tuk tuk and 2 dollars one way. I think that it took 20 to 30 minutes by car to Angkor Wat. It was about 50 dollars at the sightseeing course called the small turning route which the hotel provided.
A shop located across the hotel
Institute for Khmer Traditional Textiles (IKTT: Khmer Traditional Textile Research Institute)
I had a nice stay at this hotel. The meal was also delicious. Apart from salads and fruits prepared in a buffet style, they prepare hot dishes separately every time. You can choose from two egg dishes, noodles, rice porridge, pancake and so on. Although we had breakfast there 3 times during my stay, the seasoning was delicately different every time. Probably, I think that it depends on the person in charge of cooking. Well, that place is lovely. In the tour of the ruins, I walked a long distance. Although I was thinking of going to a massage in the city, I dispatched a staff from a massage shop where the hotel is affiliated, and I was able to receive the treatment of the whole family at the same time in my own room. It was comfortable not to move. WiFi could be used without any problems.
