We opened the door and it smelt incredibly bad musty , dirty, stuffy horrible ! We then noticed the tiny room with 2 beds and a foam mattress on the floor . Without a... More

My Bf & I traveled to Siem reap this year during the chinese new year only to find all guest houses & hostels totally sold out. Luckily we met a french traveler who suggested Smileys. We paid 10$ per night for a room with minimal amenities though the bathroom's are extremely small with no hot water and no air conditioner.... More

When I arrived at Smiley's guesthouse the people behind reception were really pushing me to pay for the upgrade, I declined as I had reserved a double room with a fan, they gave me the key for C7 and I was disgusted. There were dead mosquitos on the dirty bending and there was no toilet seat and no shower, even... More

We read the not so fantastic reviews of this guesthouse, but truly were after a place to rest our heads whilst in SR so figured we could be forgiving if need be. Im sad to say the negative reviews of this place, are all true. The staff are certainly NOT smiling, we were met with the same scam another reviewer... More

The guesthouse we had booked had double booked our room and so we had to go to another guesthouse for the night, which happened to be Smiley's. It certainly is not Smiley at all, you are greeted by a notice on your room door which along with other do and don'ts stated that 'we cannot be held responsible for loss... More

This is a charming guest house, with the perfect location to see the temples. It is not near the city night life but has tons of charm and offers a nice place to rest in the busy world of Cambodia. For a reasonable price you can stay in a clean single room. Staff is very nice and happy to help.... More

I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews for this place. We stayed here three nights in total in the cheapest double ensuite room, it had no air con, just a ceiling fan so it was very hot but we did only pay for a fan. The room was fine and for those saying it's the worst they've... More

This place is good for a backpacker who just wants a place to stay. But it's dirty, the staff are rude and their are ants, spiders and little bugs everywhere. We asked for a refund after seeing our room and they refused. Do NOT recommend it to anyone

Stayed for one night as I arrived late and was desperate. $15 for an aircon room on the ground floor. The bed was really comfy and I had a great sleep. Also there were no mossies in my room and the small TV worked fine. The staff were terrible giving you dirty looks as you walk around. I had a... More
