Check in was smooth, room was very clean and authentically decorated in the style of the pretty colonial house. The only have a fan, which did his job. Unfortunately you could hear the noise from the neighbors as if they were sitting in your room, but nevertheless the location of baraca is superb-central and very close to all restaurants and the river. For my taste a little bit expensive for what you get as the accommodation is quite basic. Would stay there again for one or two nights! And love their tapas bar downstairs!
bARACA left us the same mixed feelings as Kampot on the whole. Liked it, yet.. The location is great. Town center. Surrounded by restaurants and coffees and other services. Less than a minute away from riverfront. The whole property is decorated in a style that recalled maybe south america. Kitch. Kind of cool. But not necessarily comfortable. The bed was ok, but for instance, there was not enough light to read a book. No A/C. Heat was tolerable with the fan, though. No hot water. Wi-Fi didn't work through all our 3 night stay (we were told the service provided was contacted but no assistance was given). Staff was a German couple. Friendly and available. Nevertheless, we had a feeling the main present concern is more the restaurant. We cannot comment on the food as we didn't eat there, but the gin was great. Price was appropriate. Recommended, but only if you're ok with having your comfort a little compromised.…
Review based on experience with Belgien owners - business handed over after our visit mid of September. Location: in a side street with several bars & restaurants. Guesthouse includes a tapas bar with great cocktails. Room: had room #1 which had a beautiful look. Shower was with no hot water, but due to summer temperatures acceptable to shower like that (should have been outlined in booking, but wasn't). Current owners: friendly & nice couple with lots of suggestions for us to do. You could feel the passion. Met the future owners who will take over in September. Nice couple - but we don't know their concept for the future.
One night in Baraca to explore Kampot. Couple in Baraca were very welcoming - lots of info on places to eat and drink in the area. Baraca actually has a wee tapas restaurant attached but owners didn’t push it, recommending others too for the best of any given cuisine the area had to offer. Location good for exploring the town and the river and handy location to walk back to at night after dinner and drinks. Rooms were high ceiling, very nicely furnished. Cute little balcony overlooking town.
The couple who run this hotel are really welcoming and helpful. The rooms are basic and with no air con, but the high ceilings and fans meant that wasn’t an issue. The hotel is situated in the heart of town, a stones throw from the river and lots of other bars and restaurants. I loved the character of the place and the food was delicious. The night I stayed there was a huge storm and the traditional tin roof meant it sounded as though the world was ending, luckily the proprietors provide ear plugs so that was easily dealt with! I would hugely recommend
