“Nice bungalow - shame there's no view”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

The bungalows are nice enough, ensuite with hot water for $8 isn't too bad! Hot water took a whole to kick in..but did eventually come on. The bed was pretty tiny double, especially when we've stayed in twin rooms with practically double beds each. Very comfy mattress - maybe to compensate for the rock solid pillow.

About a 10minute walk max up to the main area of town, not a problem in the dark (although the moon was pretty full so might be worth remembering a torch)

Didn't use the tour service so can't comment on this - although it looked pretty similar to all the others offered in town.

Only downside is no food offered there, one evening there was a massive thunderstorm and we were stuck in our rooms with nowhere close by to get dinner, we survived though :)

I ended up staing there on the advice of the owner of the Gecko bar nearby and never regretted it. All the bungalows offer the right amenities (hot shower not the least one) and they are cleaned everyday. The staff have very little English but enough to get by. Very good value for money although you may hear your neighbour's TV if he/she is a little hard of hearing.

I really am the last one to complain about anything, for the first night, this place was ok. Rows of simple, small rooms with attached bathrooms. Fair price and pretty clean, we thought nothing could go wrong here. we could hear music from a distant place but that was all. We were out most the next day, returning in the afternoon. we found a party tent installed next door - stacks of speakers right against our wall. They cranked the speakers at about 4 and the party was on till almost midnight. We desperately tried to get some sleep as we were exhausted so when the music stopped - Bliss, we thought this was it - then, music starts again at 4 AM. We were supposed to stay in another couple of nights out but it was just all too much volium out of the worst kind of speakers ! I only wish you would inform people next time there's a party - As we came here to get some peace and quiet.

We had spent 3 nights at this clean, simple and quiet guesthouse. Because we reserved one day in advance, we had a special discount and paid $ 12 per night for two beds and own bathroom. From what we had heard from other travellers, this must be the best choice in town. The owner speaks very good english and cooperates with pat guecko bar, just around the corner.

I stayed here during the Water Festival, and was charged double for my bungalow, although it still wasn’t much. The location is slightly outside the main town, which was a bit difficult as there is no way of getting food or drink at the hotel. Having said that, the bungalows are very pleasant, and the setting of the hotel is very peaceful. In addition, the staff made a huge effort to look after me and sort out transport and trips, which was pretty hard when travelling on your own during a busy festival period. I would stay here again.

We arrived in Sen Monorom from the bank of the Mekong and immediately noticed the cooler temperature. The Phanyro Guesthouse was our destination and we were delighted to see a grand selection of newly built lodges. Inside ours was a large bedroom with comfortable beds and some basic furniture and a bathroom with toilet, wet floor shower and hand basin. All very clean. They have no restaurant in the guesthouse so we made our way to the high street and The Green House for drinks and a meal. These two places turned out to be a good combination for the three days we were there. We had one day and night with the elephant conservancy project that we thoroughly enjoyed. Another day we spent going to the large waterfall , coffee plantation and to a mountain top for a big panorama. We had a memorable evening with Tania at her place called Banana just down the road, tucked away behind a wild frontage. There was nothing wild about her cooking, it was great, and she kept us entertained with her stories over drinks. At the end of the stay our bill was very reasonable, enough to make us smile.

Our host in Krachie kind of "forced" us to have a look at this place (I guess it was his cousin or so...), so our transport stopped right in front of it. So first we were a little sceptic. BUT: This is a really nice place, almost never had a cleaner one on our whole trip through South-East-Asia with such a good price.

The friendly owner speaks good english and was very helpful organising a motorbike and different kinds of trips. You can even do a hike to the province of Randulkiri - 3 days through the jungle with a guide. Definitely worth it!

We really enjoyed our stay.
