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

Sam So and all the staff members are the sweetest people. I stayed in a twin room with AC for a little longer than a month. The rooms are very spacious and the AC works great! The wifi was a bit slow for my liking, however was free and accessible. Location is great with nearby restaurants. It's a walkable distance... More

Our group came here on the recommendations of friends. Sam So Guesthouse certainly did not disappoint! Very clean, spacious rooms, with some of the friendliest staff I've ever met. A great location too; close enough to the old market to be accessible, but far away enough from the chaos for us to be able to find solace when we needed... More

Its location is near the pub street. They offer free airport pick-up. The owner and the staff are very accommodating. The rooms are nice and quite spacious. Breakfast is also good. I recommend this place if you are traveling on a tight budget.

I decided to wait until the end of my trip to do any reviews just so I had a better idea of what to compare it to. It silly to rate this and compare it to hotels in North America. It's not North America! This was the first place I stayed on my trip. I really enjoyed the location. It... More

We picked this guesthouse on the feedback from other guests. The guesthouse was in a lovely quiet courtyard away from the busy noisy street, the rooms were mainly quiet (sometimes the kids were playing outside but this was no problem. While the room was clean (and cleaned daily) the bathroom was in need of updating and repair (it smelt very... More
