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

The staff and incredibly friendly and helpful, and the owners are two of the most lovely people you will ever meet. Room was great and very clean. I was there in the hot season, so if you are there then, make sure you pay... More

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

We have stayed in Sam So's twice now and would never go anywhere else in Siem Reap. It has all your basic requirements, being clean, comfortable with all the mod con's you require. However, what sets Sam So apart from all the other hotel's I have stayed in (and there have been a fair few, my girlfriend and I are... More

My partner and I stayed at Sam So 3yrs ago and rebooked here on our current trip to Cambodia. The staff here are lovely and very helpful, they organised our airport transfers and our daily tuk-tuks for us so it was hassle free and at a good price. They were also very trustworthy and none of our phones or laptops... More

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
