I've got to agree with JClevrrley, this place is run down and I can't understand the good reviews. Rooms are very basic for the money and staff could be a lot more helpful. I had a couple of issues with my room, like the shower not working. The girl on reception suggested what she thought was wrong and then expected... More

We had read a few reviews on the guesthouse on other sites and believed it to be a good value alternative to where we were. We even went to see a room, which looked basic but nice. Unfortunately, for the $20 we paid, we got a dirty room in disrepair that was painted in an awful, patchy, bright canary yellow.... More

Sam So guesthouse was great. Sam So and his family made us feel at home from the moment of our arrival. The staff was amazing, always helpful and friendly. They were always willing and able to help and responded quickly to anything we needed. The price was great, breakfast was good, showers were hot. Overall great experience.

Stayed here for 3 nights with two other friends. Got the triple room. Beds were comfortable and the strong air conditioning system was great after a hot day out exploring the temples. Bathrooms are pretty clean too. Place was about 5-10 mins walk to Pub street which is a good place to get dinner and hang around. It's tucked in... More

I value a good room, for a cheap price, with private bath, clean, safe, honest owners and staff, good breakfast, decent bathroom. All of these criteria were met at Sam So. The staff were awesome. The breakfast was good. The rooms were clean. The price was a bargain. The guesthouse is off the main road so there was no traffic... More

The staff were all very friendly, but understood very little English. The breakfast was extremely basic and rooms were filthy. We asked for the room to be cleaned on 3 occasions in the first 12 hours of our stay, as there was excrement on the toilet seat and dirt all over the walls and floors of bathroom and bedroom but...

Spent 3 nights here in the double room with air conditioner. Mrs Sotheavy has been extremely helpful from the point I made the booking up to us checking out on our last day. The staff were kind and well-versed in English, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast omelette was really tasty and satisfying. No regrets staying here,... More

This building is beautiful, with marble floors, a winding grand staircase in the lobby, and beautifully carved solid wood door throughout. It doesn't carry its age as well once you get into the rooms. The walls are a little grungy, and the retrofitted bathrooms don't ventilate well, so they do get musty. I paid for a single room with en... More
