I stayed here for 3 nights. The owner is a very friendly person who helps wherever he can to gives his clients tips for visiting PP. I felt very safe and the location is great. Everything is in walking distance! My room was very quit - i couldn't here any noise from the busy streets. I will be definitely go back there if I come back to PP! Thank you for all the advices and recommendations!!

How I rate hotels. Star ratings for hotels are based upon facilities and services. It is easy to find the star rating for any hotel. I rate hotel based upon the experience. For example, a 2 star hotel may provide a 4 circle experience.

I had a twin room with A/C and no window. It was great. Quiet, powerful A/C and shower. Several English channels on the TV. There is a family feel to this place. Even though it is situated in the middle of Girly Bars, Mr Seng does not allow sex tourism to invade the hotel. For a great noodle soup breakfast, take a left out of the hotel and there is a food stall on the next corner.

Also, if you are there on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, be sure to check out the night market about 3 blocks away. Each food stall at the market has a plethora of different food. just point at what you wish to try. Take your food and sit on one of the carpets and enjoy your meal in the company of others.

Europe Guest House has very basic but secure rooms. The staff are all extremely cheerful and helpful and, being as the guest house is located near the river among bars with names like “69 Bar,” “Horny Bar,” etc, it was comforting to know that the owner took our safety so seriously. There is no sex tourism allowed in the Guest House, and any valuables left at the front desk are carefully stowed. The guesthouse is within walking distance of many fine restaurants, and the onward bus to Siem Reap recommended by the owner was excellent.

For safe, clean budget accommodation, I’d strongly recommend this Guest House.

For those that gave this place a bad review they don't know what they're talking about. Me and my boyfriend had never been to Cambodia before (We've both been to Thailand twice), and we had a long 6 + hour ride in a "shared taxi" (2 in the driver's seat, 2 in the passengers, 3 in the back of a camry) from the border to Phnom Penh. I had terrible car sickness, but arriving at this guesthouse made our intro into this lovely country all the difference. Greeted by Lin, he had great English and was very attentive & interactive, always willing to help. All I saw were 2-3 tiny months in the bathroom, which is better than a 100 ants like Thailand. And when they say safety box in the front, it's actually safe. They tape it up entirely infront of you every time you drop something off (or forget like we did 3 times =p) Sheets were clean, bathroom spotless (and i'm kind of a wuss when it comes to that), the showerheads didn't have any rust or limestone!

Seng, a Paris native! and his family run this business, with a silent AC (he changes it every 6 months), modern & clean decor, amazing staff, I don't know what more of a host and location you could ask for. Hearing some of the strange guest's he's encountered (someone complaining the AC didn't work in the middle of the night demanded a discount, which was offered, and later revealed that there was a timer set on their AC. -_-"), I think people don't know a good guest house when they see one.

Room Tip: I believe the bigger rooms are upstairs, but try to get the first floor, as there are some stairs!

Stayed there for only one night in a single room round the stairs. Though no windows, the room had no bad smell (only a few mosquitoes). Bathroom was basic but clean. Good air-conditioning and wifi. A bakery and convenience store just round the corner. Owner was helpful and he would briefly introduce places in Phnom Penh and the tuk-tuk prices so that you have some idea where to go and how much to pay. Was very kind and nice; and helped arranged transportation (including sending me to the bus station because no pick up service during Chinese New Year).

Amazed at the negative reviews. I have lived in, and travelled through SE Asia for years. Friendly French Cambodian family, clean rooms, and nice location. This place is great - all you need unless you like luxury, and like to pay for it...
