We stayed here three nights and although we were on the very top floor and the stairs were a bit hairy we enjoed it. The bed was comfortable and so were the pillows. The staff were helpful and the tuk tuk drivers were great. The only negative was that the water pressure in the shower was very bad but we... More

Pros: The room was dark, but good, and the building is quite charming. The breakfast is basic, but decent. The location is excellent, a two minute walk from the palace, and close to the river. Cons: Our first impressions were not good. Nothing made us feel even a little welcome when we arrived. The owner who checked us in was... More

I was expecting more from this Guest House as the reviews on Tripdvisor were good, the room was clean but dark, although I didn't like the wet bathroom but I am not a fan of them. I thought the basic breakfast was okay and the coffee was the best we had in our three weeks in Cambodia. The receptionist was... More

Although our room was clean and nicely presented, we struggled to get the door open as it scraped along the floor. The staff were not very friendly which surprised us as we have had a lovely welcome from every other place in Cambodia. Breakfast was limited but was set in a nice courtyard. The hotel did the job but was... More

Room was clean and spacious although there was a plastic bag used as shower drain. We asked to stay another night and were told that we would be moved to room 9 as our room was booked for that night. We agreed to this. On returning from a day out we were told we were in room 12 which you... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We were picked up from the airport ($10) and it was nice to have someone waiting as we were tired. The staff are very helpful and organised our bus trip to Siem Reap. The rooms are very clean and they have good size beds. Having a mosquito net over the bed was also nice... More

We stayed for four nights here and had a great stay. We had breakfast every morning in the beautiful courtyard surrounded by plants and little fountains, it really was a lovely way to kick of the day. The guesthouse really feels like a little retreat hidden from the city once you step inside away from the hustle and bustle but... More

We were so fortunate to stay is so many amazing places when we backpacked. Honestly, this place was really, really great. The staff was super friendly and helped us book all our minibus tickets to neighboring places and the cleaning staff was just out of this world. Everyone really seemed to go out of their way to make you have... More

Good location (hidden in a alleyway) a 5-10 minutes walk or tuk-tuk ride from great restaurants, street food and tourist attractions. Good staff and clean room. Highly recommended and I would definitely stay there again.

Great spacious room with garden window (pre-arranged with owner) The room was nicely decorated, with old pictures of Cambodia, a well-equipped bath room and refrigerator in room makes this picture complete. (booked for $30 night) Attractive garden as an oasis when returning from busy city. In the BB the shoes have to be taken off , is common custom. Good... More
