I'll be honest at first I wasn't wowed like the reviews led me to believe but by the end of the stay I was extremely happy with our stay. For $15 for 2 includes breakfast, it is only a fan room, the value was good. I would highly recommend the AC rooms for $5 more, the fan didn't quite cut... More

Our family had a great stay at Sam So Guesthouse. They were very accommodating, placing an extra bed in the triple room so the four of us could sleep together at only a minimal extra charge. Since we are on a budget we went with the fan only for the first several nights but the heat finally got to us... More

Arriving on the airport with free pick-up service, as promised. But no pick-up. But a helpful tuk-tuk driver to bring me to the guesthouse (for a fee). Strangely enough at the reception the tuk-tuk driver and the receptionist do know each other, having great fun. Just screwed another foreigner $5 for what was essential a free ride? Of course no-one... More

We stayed here for three nights. The staff were so welcoming after such a horrendous journey across the border, we immediately felt at home. We were shown to our room which was lovely and spacious. The fridge didn't really work but that was the only downside. The guesthouse is a little out of town but everything is walkable so it's... More

Sam So Guest House is in a very good location, walking distance to Pub Street, but in a reserved area and noiseless. The staff is very friendly, good breakfast, for a comfortable and restful stay in Siem Reap. Recommend

Me and my son stay at Sam So Guesthouse for 3 night. The place is ultra clean, the staff is great and helpful. You feel welcome the minute you walk in. The small guesthouse, like Sam So, is the best way to support local family.

I organized a family trip and booked a few rooms at Sam So Guesthouse and Mrs.Somtheavi was very helpful. We also booked an excursion arranged by her and everything went smoothly. I'll come back again

A group of us students from the University of Virginia stayed with Sam So for five weeks during an internship with the Build Your Future Today Center (a nonprofit that provides nutrition and educational programs for children in rural villages on the outskirts of Siem Reap). We had a phenomenal time here- all amenities were provided (A/C, TV, minifridge, etc.)... More

We booked Sam So upon a friend's recommendation, and overall, it didn't disappoint. The rooms are not fancy, and no longer as new--but they're clean, and more than enough to get you a good night's sleep. The bathroom has hot water, although I wish the clothes bar was longer (or maybe I just really bring a lot of clothes when... More
