This place is very cosy and the staff very friendly. All try to make your stay a really nice one. Personally I like the concept of the owner to employ local people and support them with language courses, as well as support them to study. This is all financed by this place, so have a nice time here and support... More

We had amazing two nights stay in Bebel. Location is nice and we walked to the center and markets easily. You can also use a very nice swimming pool located next door. The room was specious and quite. We especially enjoyed calm evening at the outside sitting area! Thank you for a great stay.

We had a difficult border crossing from Thailand into Cambodia but when we reached Babel it was all worth it. What an amazing oasis. Staff are so friendly and accommodating. We particularly enjoyed our 2 day tour of the temples with Babel's tuk tuk driver Mr Vanarith! To top it all off we got engaged at sunset overlooking Angkor Wat... More

I stayed at Babel Guesthouse for 3 weeks while in Siem Reap teaching English in the surrounding villages. The Babel Guesthouse became a home for me, with the most welcoming faces every morning and evening when I'd return. I spent a lot of time getting to know the staff all of whom are in university. One of the great things... More

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...
