The surrounding area is not the best, but the hotel itself was nice. It seemed clean, provided the appropriate ammendities, and the staff was very helpful. I liked that it was quiet and close to my dinner place (the cabbage garden), which was recommended to me by an expat. Note: their food & water could be a bit pricy. I... More

The Small Hotel is a tranquil refuge away from all the "action" of Sihanookville. This is the third time I've stayed because I like the quiet, secure atmosphere and the food is great, even though I haven't tried the Swedish meatballs! The hotel provides a ride daily to Indepence Beach.

Stayed for 1 night on way from Islands to koh kong. Rooms are good size, clean and with very comfy beds. It's also very close to the main bus departure points in town so it suited our needs perfectly. The staff were really helpful and booked bus tickets for us at short notice

We booked this hotel thinking - it can't be that far from the beach - but it really is a 45 min-1 hour walk! Apart from this fact the hotel was lovely! The staff were very kind and friendly, always willing to help! The rooms were lovely and clean with lots of facilities including a flat screen TV, a fridge... More

Runned by the same management during 12 years make this hotel incredible friendly and helpful. Good food (khmer and swedish). Very clean rooms. Beach bar on Independence beach. Location close to bus station and within walking distance to market. Hotel can help with any type of transport or activity. Say hello to Henrik and Mom when you go to Sihanoukville.

I stayed at The Small Hotel last year and I loved it, so I visited it again this year. It's not 5 or 4 star hotel but you'll get much more you could expect paying so little. The rooms have everything you need for the vacation including good WI-FI, the service is great, the bar and restaurant serves good choice... More

Big, well equipped rooms! The staff is so polite, sweet and helpful! We stayed for 4 nights and were so pleased with our stay! Great atmosphere, and the food is also absolutely great, both khmer and western (great Scandinavian food!!- we loved it since we are from Denmark)

This is a really nice, clean, modern hotel run by a westerner and he is doing a good job at keeping the standard high. If you would get a hotel like this at the main beach area in Sihanoukville, you would pay about 25-30 dollars a night, but since it is about 1,5 kilometers away from the beach down the... More

Though certainly not the fanciest hotel in which I have stayed. The Small Hotel wins out for service, care, nurturing, and first rate attention to detail. The staff are amazing. The restaurant in the hotel is outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was quiet, clean and well equipped. The Small bar at the beach was lovely, a little... More

We stayed here for 1 night after our flight from Siem Reap to Sihoukville was delayed and we missed the fast ferry to Koh Rong Samloem. The room was clean with ac and bed very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and warned us about keeping our passports somewhere safe. Location is not close to the beaches but a short... More
