After reading reviews on tripadvisor we opted for sam so guesthouse and despite arriving late in the evening with no booking, we thankfully managed to get a room. We are very glad we did. The guesthouse is located a couple of minutes from the river and a short ten minute walk to the market down a quiet little alleyway meaning... More

My friend and I went to Siem Reap primarily to see Angkor Wat. What we got staying at Sam So Guesthouse, was hospitality beyond our wildest imagination. Sam and his wife were helpful from the moment we stepped onto his property. We were immediately shown tours they could help us book, and told of their recommendations of what to see... More

We came across Sam So Guesthouse on Trip Advisor after the place we were recommended was full, what a stroke of luck it was! Located in a quiet courtyard minutes from the river and centre yet peacefully off the main street is this wonderful guesthouse run by Sam So and his lovely family. The rooms are well appointed, clean, spacious,... More

We had such an enjoyable stay here in December. The rooms are very clean, large and a nice bathroom. The family who run the guesthouse will help you out with anything you need and also help you plan your days out. We travelled Laos and Cambodia for 1 month and this was the best place we stayed!! Thanks to Sam... More

We stayed at Sam So Guesthouse for three nights from 7 to 10 January 2012. I'd booked a double room via email a few weeks beforehand at US$17 a night. If you arrive by bus from Phnom Penh then they can arrange for a tuk tuk to pick you up which is handy. Just remember to let them know when... More

I have been in Cambodia for 2 months now, and Sam So and his wife are some of the kindest people I have met in Cambodia so far. I booked a single room for 10$, but when I arrived, I got a big double bed (with a nice, soft pillow, which you won't always get here!) for the same price... More
