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

About 15 minutes. •Breakfast is included and served in a quaint covered outdoor seating area. •They have beer and soda available for purchase. $1 •We hired the same tuk tuk driver to take us to all the temples the...

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...
