The hotel is in a good location and at a reasonable price of $20 however it is lacking a few basic luxuries. The cleanliness and bathroom facilities could do with improvements. The breakfast was really good and the staff friendly. Recommended for somewhere cheap to stay.

I stayed at Sam So for 4 nights in July 2015 in a room with fan and a friend of mine had another room. The guesthouse is very well located in a street across the river from the FCC (and very near the bridge). You need to enter a very friendly courtyard where the children play in the morning (and...

Everyone was so attentive to our needs and since we left early to get to the temples, we were really grateful that breakfast was provided. I would reccomend getting a room with airconditioning though, but other than that the facilites were great. When we booked the Cambodian Circus, we even got a ride to the place. Close walk to the...

Stayed at Sam So for over a month and it was the best guesthouse I could have asked for. The rooms were cleaned every day, the staff helped us book tours and bus tickets, the free breakfast everyday was delicious and the owners made us feel like family. Overall, me and my friends couldn't have chosen a better place to... More

My friends and I stayed here for 40 days during our internship at an local NGO, It's the best place possible to stay at if you don't want to spend a fortune staying at big 4 or 5 star hotels. Reasons include: Walking distance to old market, complementary breakfast, bicycle rental, awesome service, and most important of all is that... More

The actual amenities of the guest house was deserves a 3.5 stars. However, we were extremely unhappy with the concierge service provided at the front destk. Upon arriving, the owner convinced us to book a tour of Ankor Wat through her for $60.00. Later in the day, another tour operator down the street offered us the exact same tour for... More

Was here for 4 months while I was volunteering in Siem Reap. Was a great experience.

I stayed here with a friend for 3 nights in a twin room. The room was amazingly cheap $8, the bed was comfortable, everything was clean and quiet at night. They picked us up from the airport, which is an awesome service to include for free, since every regular tuktuk driver in Siem Reap will use the entire journey into... More

I booked this guesthouse due to the good review I saw on the various accomodation booking website and it didn't disappoint me at all. In fact it exceeded our expectation. We were picked up at the airport on time when we arrived at Siem Reap. The triple room is comfortable and clean, equipped with air conditional and personal bath room.... More
