Top 12 Travellers’ Choice Hotels in Asia:
- Viroth’s Hotel – Siem Reap, Cambodia – TripAdvisor average annual pricing from USD128 per night.
Located close to the bustling shopping and dining precinct of Wat Bo, Viroth’s Hotel exudes “retro chic” with its 1950s vibes décor – think “crisp white walls, bright cushions and azure diamond tiled hallways”.
TripAdvisor said reviewers loved the “spacious rooms”, the vintage Mercedes and Rolls Royce for airport transfers and most of all, the “world class service”. Guests seeking relief from the tropical heat can make a beeline for shaded hotel bar or the salt water pool for a refreshing dip.
- Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur – Jodhpur, India. TripAdvisor average annual pricing from USD852 per night.
For a hotel where you can “feel like royalty”, head to the Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur. The hotel is the world’s sixth-largest private residence and the last of India’s palaces – in fact, the Jodhpur royal family still lives in the property. Reviewers describe a stay at this hotel as a “once-in-a-lifetime royal experience” with suites that are eclectic mix of art deco and neo-classical themes and magnificent views of the palace grounds.
- Hanoi La Siesta Hotel & Spa – Hanoi, Vietnam. TripAdvisor average annual pricing from USD133 per night.
Hanoi La Siesta Hotel & Spa is centrally located in the heart of Hanoi’s bustling Old Quarter.

The duplex room is highly recommended for its spaciousness, value for money, and a “great rooftop view of the Old Quarter”.
