I can't recommend this place more highly as it does everything it sets out to do, and more. The Li family have gradually built up the three-storey structure floor by floor . The second-floor room I had was clean, quiet and spacious and apart from a couple of nights of dodgy wifi, everything worked- fridge, shower, TV, air con etc... More

My partner and I loved this place. We were looked after like family or friends. If we were to run a guest house, this is how we would do it. From the time they picked up us up from the airport to the time we left, we were looked after so well. We even loved the way they explained things... More

The room was really really clean, the staff were lovely and really helpful, the breakfast was delicious, aircon and fans in the rooms, TV and good fridge, wifi and we had a really big room too and all at very reasonable prices. As well as all that, staying in the seven candles guesthouse helps to contribute to the brilliant work... More

Although the profits of the guesthouse do not directly support the foundation and its schools, the guesthouse hosts the foundation's office. Ponheary Ly and her family are warm, incredibly knowledgeable, and inspiring. Ms. Ly helped us create a customized three-day itinerary, and arranged for great Tuk Tuk drivers and guide. The facilities are lovely, clean, and comfortable. We wholeheartedly recommend... More

If you're gonna stay in Siem reap, just go. No questions asked. Just go. Friendliest, most helpful staff, wonderful cause, excellent rooms, breakfast and a rooftop lounge. Also if you have a few extra dollars/time look at the volunteering opportunities or donating.

We did not stay at Seven Candles since we were travelling with little kids and wanted a pool, but we booked a guide through them. They have very good service, competitive pricing, and our guide was perfect. As a bonus, their tuk tuk drivers were extremely friendly.

This inn offers spotlessly clean simple rooms with good beds, functional bathrooms, air conditioning, water boiler, fridge, and cable TV. There is in-house laundry service and a very pleasant roof-top terrace with drinks and snacks available, and open street-side balconies with seating and reading material on every floor. It's located a short walk from Pub Street and the old market,... More

I came here with a group (my second time at Seven Candles), and it really is a home away from home. The staff look after you, the food is good and the rooftop lounge is a great way to spend the afternoon. It is less than a mile from the old market and pub street, there are bikes for guests...

If you wanna go to visit Sieam Reap's temples (Angkor with its numerous temples and forests) I suggest to stay in this clean and confortable guesthouse. It is provided a good tuk tuk service (not free but at good price) and is near to city centre (10' with tuk tuk fro pub street). Breakfast is very rich!
