What a nice, quiet friendly place. The best I stayed in during my two weeks in Cambodia. The room was very clean and had a king sized bed, fridge, AC, flat screen TV with DVD and video's. All for a very reasonable price. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable. The meals I had here were quite good too. Make sure to... More

The small hotel is run by a Swedish-Cambodian couple. The staff is very friendly and they will help you out with any tour bookings or information about where to go. The room was quite ok, more spacious than other rooms I've stayed in and clean. It's located downtown, but that's not where things happen. The hotel will gladly let you... More

This is a great base for Sihanoukville if you don't want to stay near the beach. It's spotless and really well run. The food is great, especially breakfast, and the rooms are small but perfectly formed. No hot water while we were there but no big deal. The staff are excellent and give great advice. One of the best things... More

Summary Swedish run - the team here are really geared up for westerners, yet offer a different aspect on hotel-keeping, which is relaxed and refreshing, yet personal and comfortable. Pros GREAT food, reasonably priced. We ate dinner, and breakfast in the hotel (because it was convenient) - but breakfast was definitely a result of dinner being so good! It's been... More

This is far from 5 star luxury but a simple, clean and efficient experience at the right price. The staff are well trained and very friendly and helpful (hi Chanda) - if your accommodation need is simply somewhere to rest your head in the midst of your travels rather than a travel experience in itself, then look no further.Decent restaurants...

Stayed here just one night before heading out to Ko Rong. Good food in the restaurant. Was worried the bar might keep me awake but actually it did not at all - had a very good night's sleep here. The staff were all helpful and friendly too so that was nice.

We stayed here for one night while waiting for a boat to Koh Rong Samloem. It's in the town centre which means it's a few kilometres from the main Serendipity Beach area. This could be seen as a blessing or a curse, depending on how keen you are on Cambodia's answer to Benidorm. The rooms are very nice and good... More

Only stayed one night, noise from the bar kept me awake, hard to sleep. To top it off woken at around 6am with deafening noise from machines doing road construction at the front of the hotel. Bed was OK, nice fluffy towels

Sihanoukville is probably not my first choice for a place to stay in Cambodia. It's generally catering for the younger back packer with it's huge number of bars etc. Nothing wrong with that, it's just not my thing. Not needing or wanting to be near the beach area, the Small Hotel is a good choice. It's also walking distance to... More

We are for here for I don't know which time, but we always come back to this Hotel. Mainly it is because of the staff, who are all so friendly and helpsome, but also for the excellent food. The portions are rather big and and the athmosphere are peaceful with many guests that are talking to each other, even if... More
