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

Anyone can fake it for a night or two, but when you stay at a guest house for three weeks you get to know the staff and the hotel operations pretty well. After 21 days of staying with Mr. Sam So and Mrs. Sotheavy in their guest house, I can't think of a single thing i would have changed about... More

I was hopeful, since the hosts are delightful. A tuk tuk driver was waiting for me at the bus station. The place seemed nice. But my bed is infested with bed bugs, my breakfast omelette had ham in it when I specifically asked for no meat, and the owner forgot to turn the hot water on the first night I... More

I had selected staying at this guesthouse based on an internet search on hostels.com, which is not limited to hostels, by the way. I mostly selected it because there were several reviews saying how great the owners were, which I value, plus, going to another country, I was concerned about language barrier. I had actually received an email the day... More

This was our first stop in Cambodia, and we stayed there for 4 nights. The room was large with comfy beds, and hot water,and the guesthouse as a whole was clean and cozy. We had breakfast there every morning,which always included delicious fresh fruit! Yum! The best part of our stay however, was the incredibly helpful owner. We took to... More

We loved this accommodation, especially the very helpful and friendly staff. They helped organize our trips and the driver was very friendly and waited for us when we wanted to stop somewhere. Also the breakfast was very good! We would certainly stay here again! Thank you for the wonderful time in Siem reap, we loved it there!

The guesthouse itself is great. Good value for money, big/clean rooms and a good breakfast is included. But what really makes this guesthouse so great is the staff. They're all so kind and can't do enough for you. We booked all our trips and transport through Sam So without any problems. They really go the extra mile to make your... More

About 10-15minute walk from Pub Street. Staffs are very friendly. Mrs. So helped us in our itinerary and bus ticket booking. Room is clean, air-conditioned, special mention for the... More
