Simply said SamSo is one of the most accommodating and kind hosts we could of asked for. The room was simple but clean and whenever any problems would arise (eg broken AC) SamSo or his wife would immediately care to it. They even drove one of my friends to the hospital when she had an allergic reaction (completely free of... More

I stayed in Samso for a month while I was working at a nearby NGO and it was a great experience. The staff was very capable and kind and they would have an answer to all of our needs. The rooms were clean and simple, and the air conditioning in the room was an oasis after a long sunny day.... More

I stayed here for over a month while working for an NGO and it was a great. The owners and staff are extremely friendly. This is a family oriented business and it shows. They make it a priority for you to have a hassle free stay while in Siem Reap. The location is great too. It is only a short... More

I soon grew to love the east side of the river in Siam Reap, much less crowded and frantic than the town centre, but still with plenty of amenities. And most places to stay on the east side, like Sam So, are still within easy walking distance of the main bar area. Sam So's location is especially secluded, in a... More

We were trying to save a bit of money for few days and choose this place. Overall it is a good place to stay but it needs some updating and then it would be awesome. The location is 10 minutes from the "action" ( pub street and the markets) the owner is great and the staff are very friendly. They... More

Needed a place to stay for my first night in Siem Reap and this did the trick. It is actually a nice place with friendly staff, but was too big and isolated for my needs as a solo backpacker. Would recommend for couples of families looking for a nice place on a budget that want some peace and quiet.

This place is walkable distance to the night market (about 15 minutes top). I stayed in a single room with a queen bed. Since the bathroom is a wet room (shower in same space as toilette and sink) it flooded while showering and took a little while to drain all the water. The rooms are very basic and the sheets...
