The World's Smallest Hotels

by R. Z. Peterson

One Hotel Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia

The idea of single-room hotel sounds like a Zen koan (what is the sound of one room knocking?), so it's fitting that an Asian property put the concept on the map. American hotelier Martin Dishman opened the One Hotel Angkor in 2006 after taking over a small brick row house across the street from his popular Siem Reap bar, Linga. In the multilevel living space, Dishman installed a curvaceous king-size bed custom-made of Cambodian teak, a two-person tub and rainfall shower, and a rooftop terrace with a hot tub and outdoor shower. There's also a lobby decorated with Egg chairs and works by local artists, room service (the chef will cook dinner on the outdoor barbecue), and spa treatments. And the staff will organize guided tours of the Angkor temple complex, hire a film crew to record your trip, or connect you with local NGOs. The hotel has been such a success that Dishman has branched out, opening the Hotel Be next door, which has a whopping three rooms. There goes the neighborhood!
