I stayed here for 3 nights recently and I really enjoyed it. The place has a community and cozy feeling to it and the staff are quite friendly. It was great being able to use my balcony when I needed some downtime. They also provide free water (which is a plus) and free pick-up. It may seem far from everything... More

We stayed at the Seven Candles Guest House from 15/7 till the 18/7 2014 and this place deserves every bit of bragging. Rooms were clean, equipped with basic amenities but its striking feature were the staff of the guesthouse. They go the extra mile to make you feel at home, wanting to help you in every way they can.

We stayed at Seven Candles for 3 nights in June 2014. We appreciated the staff arranging a tuk tuk to pick us up after our bus from Phnom Penh and we also used their tuk tuk services to get out to Banteay Srei and the River of 1000 Lingas, as well as a second trip to Angkor Wat and surrounding...

Had a fantastic experience at Seven Candles for 6 nights in July 2014. The rooms are simple, but clean and the common areas are nice also. We organised a 2 day Angkor tour with a guide through reception which was easy and reasonably priced. 10-15 minute walk/5 minute bike ride (bikes are free!) from town, but great value for money...

Wonderful visit! The owners were so accommodating and friendly, and the rooms were simple but clean and comfortable. The food was also delicious! Would definitely recommend to others! Great price, too.

We left two days ago but can't stop thinking of Seven Candles Guesthouse. Seven Candles was the highlight of our trip to Cambodia. We have never stayed in guesthouses before, but we did this time because of all the great reviews. Everything was fine. The food we had was lovely, the rooms perfect, the beds comfy and the air con... More

I have never stayed in a guesthouse before on our travels- this is definitely the 5 star guesthouse experience. Rooms are clean, roomy, bathrooms newish. But it is the people here that have made...

All the family members and staff of the guesthouse are always warm and friendly. We stayed here for 7 nights in a clean and spacious quad room. Ponheary brought us to our room and made the effort to explain the room and the breakfast menu and our other queries so patiently. It was also a great experience visiting the Koh... More

I don't think you stay in guesthouses often that get under your skin like this one does. It has a heart. It isn't a 5 star hotel...it is a 5 star guesthouse. Your room is less than $25 a night US so don't expect a well stocked mini-bar! The staff treat you like family that they like! Esa, our tuk... More

Seven Candles is not only a very comfortable guesthouse with excellent service and large clean rooms, it is affiliated to the Ponheary Ly foundation which feeds and educates two and a half thousand children every day. Great value, a great experience (incl. an excellent tour to Koh Ker temples), and just by staying there you're GIVING SOMETHING BACK!!!!
