I have been to Siem Reap twice and both times I stayed at Smileys Guesthouse. This is a family run place where they make all the food and can help you with a range of services and help. From all the places I stayed at between being in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam this place takes the cake. For $15 you can get a room with A/C and hot water plus if you want 3 beds in one room. It is a great value for money place as the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and they supply you with towels and whatnot. The food is not included in your stay (breakfast is not either) but it is well worth your while eating at their little restaurant in the courtyard. The food is to DIE FOR. that is not an exaggeration because it's the best food i had on my trip. I recommend the pumpkin soup because I literally went to heaven eating it and the club sandwich! Also the chocolate pancakes are definitely worth a try. They also have a brother guesthouse is phenom penh which is fantastic as well. The food is just as good as Siem Reap and the rooms are much more modern and to be honest the bathrooms are a thousand times nicer. For the same price it is worth staying at.
I love Smileys and I will happily stay there again. It is close to the center of town and tuk tuks are easy to get from either the street or the men who work at Smileys. They can organise day trips to Angkor Wat or help out with general advice. The one thing I should say is that the computers are really slow but there are plently of internet cafes around the place that are dirt cheap. Im talking 50c for an hour. Also.. go to angkor wat bar on pub street and you are guaranteed a great night!
