My husband and I had an awesome stay at Babel Guesthouse. The owner, Katherine, is just fabulous and a wonderful asset to the Siem Reap community. This place is fun and hip and also tapped into the local needs in Siem Reap. We loved the location, off the beaten path away from Pub Street, but still walkable. I highly recommend... More

Love love love Babel! The staff is incredible and the owners are very involved. It feels like staying with friends every time. They are very conscious of the good and bad things that go on in Cambodia and try to encourage good tourism with all their guests. You can spend an entire day lounging in their garden area and not...

I was here with my friends for 3 nights and we cannot complain about anything. The staff members were nice and friendly, there are always tuc tuc drivers outside, the rooms are big and clean and there is a cool ambiance in here (families, backpackers, etc). I recommend it 100%! Or kum!

Very nice place with very helpful staff. The ac had a silent modus and this was very pleasant during the night. Breakfast is included, the garden is a nice chill out area and next to Babel is a pool wich guests can use for 3$ fee. The guesthouse is located in a small dead end road and so no disturbing...

Staying in the babel was quite a great experience, they have created a great and chilled atmosphere in the dining/drinks area, massages available 24/7, they also helped us with our tours in Siem Reap which we considered it was top service and we enjoyed the friendliness of our tuk tuk driver (Mr Toe). Also it is interesting to see how... More

It was good to stay out of the centre city but still close to town . The garden was great but the staff really made it. They were friendly and helpful and nothing was a problem . The restaurant was good too.

I had a problem with the air con when I arrived, but the staff found a solution immediately. It's a nice place to stay in Siem Reap, not located in the downtown area, but you can get a tuk tuk for a couple of dollars in 5 minutes. The mood of Babel is quiet and relaxing. I would definitely recommend... More
