I should have written this review ages ago, but better late than never. We were booked in for a total of 3 nights but went back for another 3 nights. we stayed in both the Apsara, as well as Temple Villas. The rooms are very large, with excellent size bathrooms. (outside shower in temple villa is quite wicked) overlooking the swimming pool. This boutique hotel is very aesthetically and tastefully done. The decor is almost always done using indigenous material or artefacts, thus promoting local flavour.

The cuisine is excellent, especially in the quality of the meat and vegetables. Even an extreme dieter would find it hard to resist the temptations of the mashed banana and palm sugar toast in the mornings and the "amoks" (a typical cambodian dish) in the evenings.

Our driver and guide were excellent - both spoke good english and both were extremely patient with me. Sometimes my work would continue many hours past lunch time and they never once grumbled about it. they would take us wherever we wanted to go, whenever we wanted to go, suggesting the best of itineraries. they would wake up at 4 am and be spot on at 5 am....they even had me eating stuffed barbecued frogs....ha...

Last but not the least, the soul of the place is the staff. the hotel and staff seem to have the most harmonious marriage that makes for a perfect getaway. They are extremely friendly, courteous and the manager needs special mention - he did give us quite an insight into Cambodia as a whole - politics, history, people, culture, etc.

although it is not close to the temples or the city, it is so worth getting away from the hustle and bustle to a peaceful end after a busy day.

some minor hiccups not even worth mentioning, but apart from that, top quality and top stuff from a super team. kudos!

Good: Room is in good size, especially the bathroom (stayed in the terrace room, villa should be even bigger). The restaurant offers very good local food at reasonable price. Service is brilliant. Laundry service is also good, didn't use the pool since there was heavy rain almost everyday. Would defintely return next time and try the villa.

Bad: 15mins drive to the town, but if you are looking for somewhere quiet then this is the place.

Room Tip: book the villa

I'm writing this review on my iPad in the Siem Reap airport, having just checked out of Sojourn Boutique Hotel.

My brother and I spent 4 nights at Sojourn and we used it as a home base for exploring the nearby Angkor Wat temple complex. Sojourn is not a 5-star hotel in the strict sense, even though I am giving it a 5-star rating. For the adventure traveler, however, it is difficult to imagine a more friendly and comfortable place to relax between temple outings.

Sojourn is in a village a few minutes outside the hustle & bustle of Siem Reap. It is contained inside a walled compound – the grounds are lush and lovely. It is a little jarring, though (literally & figuratively) as the road to the village has been rendered almost impassable by the recent severe floods. And the village itself is impoverished compared to the very comfortable Sojourn grounds.

We had excellent service at Sojourn – the native staff is very friendly, eager to please, and keen to practice their English. We dined at Sojourn every night, most mornings, and one lunch. The selection is abundant, the quality good, and prices are quite reasonable.

The villas are charming. They are a little dark, but generally clean and comfortable. The bathroom was quite large and well-appointed.

Sojourn arranged a driver for us. He became a good friend and loyal guide. For three mornings in a row he picked us up at 04:30 in the morning to take us for sunrise photography at Angkor Wat. He patiently waited for us and took us wherever we wanted to go – sometimes past sunset.

I could go on and on. Bottom line... Just do yourself a favor and stay at Sojourn. Not only will you not be disappointed, you'll wish you could stay longer.

Pros:

- the French manager (who isn't really French, having spent most of his life outside France) can either whip up the perfect temple itinerary in a few moments or sit down with you and chat about life in Cambodia and elsewhere

- the staff, perfect and attentive, always smiling and friendly (I could go on but others have described their wonders better)

- the rooms are huge and very relaxing. We stayed in both terrace rooms and villas, both are great, just check out the pictures (the villas have a bath and are in the garden, next to the pool)

- the grounds are superb, alive at night with the sounds of frogs and geckos and the occasional kitten, beautiful by day with flowers and water everywhere. Good pool too.

- the food selection is huge and brilliant, a mix of khmer, French, international and other Asian with a large vegetarian section (all dishes can be amended too)

- it doesn't get flooded! while most of Siem Reap was seriously flooded, this hotel is outside town on slightly higher grounds


Cons:

- some would argue it's a "con" to be outside town... We felt that being in the middle of a beautiful, typical Cambodian village was much, MUCH nicer (and more authentic), than being stuck in the middle of a noisy, flooded and generally not very attractive town. You're a bit farther out to get to the temples, but the extra 5-10 minutes are spent going through beautiful countryside. Getting anywhere at all was extremely easy and the Sojourn arranged it instantly.

Conclusion: we really felt that staying at the Sojourn helped us get the best out of Siem Reap, Angkor, attractions further away and Cambodia in general.

Room Tip: Apsara villas have a bath, which the terrace rooms don't have, and are in the garden around the pool. They're worth the extra money.

Two weeks ago we stayed at Sojourn taking Tripadvisor's ranking to make the booking never having been to Siem Reap before or knowing anybody else who has.
Despite the town being flooded and our incoming arrangements changed due to the water we were graciously and promptly met at another hotel. We were expected, known by name and the whole staff could not do enough for us - 10% was also offered off meals and drinks because of the floods!!
We were delighted with our choice (other hotels we stayed at on the trip included the Sofitel Metropole and Sofitel Saigon Plaza).
The hotel is owned by Australians who live between there and Melbourne. The rooms are large, cool and simply furnished (bit Balinese in approach). The pool is lovely and large enough for just 11 rooms (villas) and the meals excellent. Despite the difficulty in trying to get into town we did not feel we needed to - this was tranquil and away from the siem reap hustle and bustle of just another largish town. Having said that if you want to party at night, perhaps it is not where you would want to be as the drive into town is a good 10 mins although hard to tell with many roads blocked and alternative routes being used.
We also booked our Siem Reap tour here, arrived in the afternoon and did the tour the next day - great guide, good english and service and price comparable with Tripadvisor advices.
We also chose to do the Sojourn half day cooking school - having done a few in Thailand, would have to say, it was OK but there is opportunity for it to be improved and more professional, but it was 100% hands on and everybody was very keen to teach us the techniques.

Room Tip: We took a temple villa and paid a bit more, not sure what we got for that as all villas look the same - at least from the outside. Make sure you ask for mosquito coils each night - you are in a jungle, but we had no trouble once they were lit.
