Stayed with my wife for 2 nights on our way to Phnom Penhn and back to Thailand.Nice and very helpful english speaking guys in reception.Basic but clean double room with air con.(15 USD per night)Good location.2 min walking to nice local pub for breakfast on the street corner.Also close to some local shops.Would recommend!
We just stayed one night as a stop over. It was well located and cheap, $9 for a double room. It was beside where our bus would leave from so ideal, although the bus company do collect you to take you to the main station.
I stayed here 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the 99 Guesthouse. It is on a side street so there isn't too much traffic, the rooms are spacious and clean, they have hot water showers, good wifi in the rooms. I found this place to be handy to everything (Koh Kong is small). The people at the front desk were kind and courteous.
The two young guys on the front desk are excellent - they speak good English, and are really efficient and helpful. At least one of them also speaks excellent French - and probably Thai as well! (Having said that, one of them caused me some problems by inadvertently giving me a wildly inaccurate price quote for a tuktuk trip. And the night guy doesn't speak any English at all...) The rooms have very good fan and air-con units: effective, quiet, very modern - the wall-fan even has a remote control (which I've never seen anywhere else in Cambodia before). The wi-fi also works very well. However, the TVs are very small, and the cable package (Thai, I assume) is pretty poor; many channels are blank, or tuned in too poorly to use; there's not that much in English. There's a communal balcony on each floor - but they don't have much of a view of anything, unfortunately; and are mainly used as smoking areas. There are well-stocked fridges in the lobby (some yoghurt, biscuits, chocolate, as well as beer, water, and soft drinks), with very cheap prices. This is an essential facility, as there is no decent supermarket - and not many shops! - in Koh Kong. The location is fairly good too - quite close to the three foreign food restaurants and the bus ticket office, but 700 or 800 m to the riverfront. My major complaint, the one thing that would stop me staying here again, I'm afraid, was the absolutely DREADFUL mattress: really thin, soft foam, it aggravated my lower back problem. (The only saving grace was that it was so puny that it compressed down to only a few cms thick, and you then started to feel some support from the wooden slats underneath!) Also the general level of maintenance was very poor: lots of things in the room were broken - shower-head mount, bathroom extractor fan (fixed on request: probably just a loose wire), curtain rail (not secured by anything, kept falling down; couldn't be fixed), one of the neon strip lights (kept on flickering with light even when switched off - may be why I slept so badly there!!). Cleaning is only done upon specific request (which is a bit odd, untypical for Cambodia); but I perhaps wasn't missing much there - the standards didn't seem great (bathroom floor always left very wet, not mopped properly). Sheets and pillow slips were quite threadbare, had a lot of holes. The sign outside appears to say '9.9' - which causes some unnecessary anxiety as to whether you've found the right place! There were frequent power cuts, though usually very short (none longer than 10 or 15 minutes, most less than a minute); and at least the staff remembered to reset the wi-fi and the cable TV promptly each time (unusual in Cambodia!). Presumably this is a common problem in Koh Kong, which is really a pretty primitive place. Prices are not super-cheap, for small-town Cambodia: a place like this is really only worth $6 or $7 a night for a fan room, perhaps $10-12 for A/C (can't see why you'd ever need it), and perhaps a dollar or two less than that during 'low season' - you shouldn't pay more. I'd say it's probably worth haggling on arrival, rather than booking ahead online.…
Excellent questhouse in Koh Kong. Staff is so nice and warm. Rooms were clean and had AC. Everything you could expect with that room price. Guesthouse also have nice terrace upstairs for having drinks and watch sunset.
