This brand-new hotel in two separate buildings in a pretty square does a great job of looking aged. Although this is not a new or even an uncommon concept, at the Steung Siemreap they manage it rather well. Downstairs, attractive checkered red and cream tiles that appear to have been purloined directly from the south of France (and may well have been) are complemented by muted dark-wood furnishings. The rooms are large and very bright with floor-to-ceiling French windows facing on to the balcony, shaded by crisp curtains. The furnishings are uncluttered and the feel is spare but not spartan. The space, light, and location make this hotel a real contender in the higher echelons of the midrange category.
