Rooms are nice and well equipped. The small balcony attached is very pleasant. The staff is very nice and helpful. You can also enjoy the big rooftop patio to relax or to take a yoga class with a yoga teacher and staff member, Marina!

This is a unique experience because you get all the comforts of a great hotel while knowing that your money is going directly to help improve the lives of young rural Cambodians. The staff are kind, accommodating and professional. The rooms are very comfortable and the roof top patio is beautiful. I highly recommend this guest house for anyone who... More

Staying at Seven Candles has been the highlight of our trip. Lovely, friendly, helpful hosts; clean, tidy, with good facilities including a lovely top floor terrace (where we spent many hours enjoying the cooling breeze). Location is excellent, with cafés nearby serving cheap local food, and the lively Pub Street just 10 minutes walk away. The guesthouse has its own... More

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

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.
