When looking for an apartment for rent in Siem Reap you can either look at older shop house and flat house buildings in the centre of town, or newly built apartment buildings
Looking for apartments for rent in Siem Reap
Looking for an apartment for rent in Siem Reap is similar to looking for one in the capital Phnom Penh. Apartments in Siem Reap tend to be found in older shop houses or flat houses, especially in the central part of the city around the old market. This means that you will be very close to most of the attractions of Siem Reap, such as the restaurants, cafés and bars, as well as near to the markets and shopping malls.
Apartments in shop houses and flat houses
Shop houses are terraced buildings with a ground floor shop where the upper floors have typically been divided into a series of apartments. The building might have a solitary owner, or the individual storeys might have multiple ownership. Flat houses are similar to shop houses apart from there is no shop on the ground floor.
One of the great attractions of renting in a shop house or flat house in Siem Reap is the great variety of small apartments available in these smaller buildings at very affordable prices, especially when compared with Phnom Penh. As in the capital, the condition of these buildings might appear a bit run down from the outside, but often a real gem awaits inside. Also, the cost of redesigning the interior of your apartment is very cheap in Cambodia, so you can easily create your little piece of paradise.
Rental contracts and terms
Contracts are flexible, ranging from a one-month rolling contract, to six-month contracts and a year or more. Typically landlords will ask for a month’s deposit with a further month’s rent in advance. The deposit is often used to cover the final month’s rent.
