We stayed 2 nights in this guesthouse. I booked 2 rooms for 4 of us. Rooms come with tv, mini fridge and aircon, aircon not cold at all until late in the night when we were already asleep. We paid more for the balcony rooms so that we can enjoy the river view, the 2nd floor balcony had a small table and 2 chairs, it was very narrow and dusty, could be because of the dusty traffic, hectic and noisy street in front of the place.so they didnt bother to clean it up, ended up we didnt use the balcony like we intended to, due to the dust and space. My friend's room at the third level didnt even have any table only a chair. The third floor room is smaller as compared to the 2nd floor one and appeared to be hardly utilized. My friends found harmless bugs on their beds when they returned to the room the first night, might be because they left their lights on when they leave the room. Otherwise the rooms and bathrooms are clean, little noisy because of the traffic. We still slept well despite of the noise. wifi is good.
The breakfast was decent and light, we had dinner at the rooftop restaurant and bar once, the river view from roof top was good and the foods were delicious until many small bugs decided to join us, they were everywhere, my plate, my mai tai, my soup my shirts etc… we may had more protein unknowingly. We asked for the remaining food to be sent to the room to complete our dinner instead. We escaped to the room and I found a few more bugs on my body when I was about to shower. We didn't go to other rooftop restaurants, but I’m thinking it could be the same.
The location was good, walking distance to many attraction, we enjoyed strolling along the riverside in the evening, lots of activities, people doing exercise and sports. The night market is a distance away, and the royal palace and silver pagoda are very near. Restaurants and travel agencies are just beside, I will advise other travelers to buy from the agencies for the rides to visit the killing field and S21 instead of being harassed by the tuk tuk drivers all the time and overcharging you by agreeing at one price initially and up the price at the end of the rides by giving excuses like he traveled to many places or spent too much time. The travel agencies stated all the places and prices in black and white.
When approached, the staff will help otherwise I do not find them very friendly nor very smiley either. I will never rate them good until an incident happened. We checked out after breakfast and were already at the bus terminal on the coach to siem reap. My careless friend realized that he lost his electronic device and he cannot remember where he left it. We called up Sinh Foo to get them to check if he left it at the breakfast area and they replied no. We thought he could kiss his electronic device goodbye, but the honest staffs from Sinh Foo called up again after they checked our room and confirmed that they found the device. I appreciate the honesty and I will give them a five star for that.
BUT I would stay again as the staffs, location, price and service outweighed the noise issue.
p.s the owner has the fattest, cutest baby.
