Hello Mei

I can tell you exactly which hotels comprise the MAADS Group of hotels and I've stayed in all of them and some of them many times.

here goes:

Phnom Penh - Starting at the top:

Plantation - largest hotel in group in PP. 86 rooms to suit all classes/requirements. Largest swimming pool of any hotel in PP. Lotus Pool Gallery area used for many exhibitions and cultural events each year.

Pavilion - choicest. Boutique. Just love it here.

Blue Lime - semi budget. Very popular indeed but not full service hotel.

Tea House - nice but not so conveniently located as on wrong side of two major roads if a walker.

Kabiki - for those with energetic children

Mekong Floating Bungalow. Note bungalow singular.

Dining:

Chinese House

Siem Reap:

The Templation - The MAADS Group Flagship hotel in 2.5 hectares. Superb. Just love it. Designed by French architecture firm specifically for its tropical location. Need tuk tuk in to centre of Siem Reap. Could happily live permanently here!

Hope that this helps you do further due diligence when selecting a possible hotel?

Best regards. Ian/Angkorlad

Correction:

I visited the Mekong Floating Bungalows in February and again in April this year. First time on a boat called the Crocodile - nothing special at all, and secondly on the far better boat, the MAADS owned Le Tonle.

There are in fact two (2) floating bungalows. Great views of both the Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers and activities there on. Directly opposite Chroy Changvar Point, confluence of these two rivers and sort of opposite the large Sokha Hotel on the point.

Don't think I would actually stay here though but OK for an evening drink or two.

Best regards. Ian/Angkorlad

John,

A mild correction if I may - but I have a policy of regularly staying at a variety hotels of interest to me or either not previously used by me, or revisiting hotels previously used by me, in order to stay up to date on what these hotels have to offer and/or are they maintaining standards. By staying in a goodly variety of hotels each year I am able to keep my finger on the pulse of the city, so to speak, and to stay well informed. This also lets me experience different parts of the city too.

This year alone I have stayed at four (4) different hotels in Phnom Penh and at one of them twice. In August, I will be spending close to two weeks at one of these hotels that I've previously stayed at this year and also using another of them for just a few nights between activities.

As for most regular visitors to a city I do have favourite places to stay at based on such matters as location, price and service etc. but I am not a creature of habit. Any hotels I chose to stay at try must, first and foremost, serve the purpose of my visit.

I refrain from writing hotel reviews because I am of the view that one needs to stay at a hotel about three times before doing so in order to get a balanced view of the hotel, its staff and services etc. There have been some hotels in Phnom Penh and elsewhere that I've quickly checked out of and moved on from too.

Simple things such as staff changes can have a huge impact on the way a hotel is perceived and this is like a pendulum for most hotels.

I recently tried to recall just which hotels I've stayed at in Phnom Penh but could only remember 23 of them. The others were most probably best forgotten anyway.

Best regards. Ian/Angkorlad

Hello inaspin

Having fun indeed.

Easy to debunk the posers on forum with very shallow, if any, knowledge of the subjects they pontificate about.

Not on the dental team in August this year as back to eyes, an area I know even better than dental as far as Cambodia is concerned.

Trust you and the Cook are well and enjoying life?

Best regards. Ian/Angkorlad
