“An enchanting place”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

My wife and self, stayed twice at the ‘Home-Sweet-Home Guesthouse', (which is also a trusted booking agency for travel throughout S/East Asia). We found the place enchanting, safe & clean, with air conditioned rooms. Low cost quality food is served most- of- the-day in the spacious canteen; which is also a choice meeting place.
A shopping Centre and supermarket are nearby and transport is always at the door in the form of friendly Tuk-tuk drivers, happy to whisk guests at low cost, to the many tourist attractions.
Actually, The Royal Palace, markets, as well as delightful river and its stunning promenade are but a short trot away; while superior budget-priced therapeutic massage establishments with qualified practitioners are everywhere. Close to the river promenade are a multitude of quality restaurants-with screamingly tasty food at low cost.
But for us, the best part---- the courteous ever helpful staff which made this inexpensive Guesthouse, truly a ‘Home- Sweet- Home!’ and it will always be our 1st choice when staying in Phnom Penh!

Spacy room and a little small bathroom, but clean enough.
The best place to relax is wide public balcony and green garden.
No Wifi in the room, even in the garden you'd better get a password from the restaurant in the neighbors.
1$/kg Landry is good, but 1.5$/cup of coffee is kidding in this area.

Our room was spacious but basic. We paid for an air-con double but no hot water (which was fine ... a cold shower is exactly what you need after the heat of the city). Staff were helpful, although we didn't use their tour services (we like to do our own thing), but the laundry service was well priced and efficient. Good location, we found it an easy walk into town even despite the heat, but if you don't like walking, there are always tuk-tuk drivers waiting outside for your custom. We ate in the guesthouse restaurant once, but quickly realised that the food and prices in the neighbouring guesthouse (the one with the pool table) were better and cheaper.

When we first arrived in phnom penh we were actually headed for somewhere else but it was fully booked so our tuk tuk driver ended up taking us to sweet home. Its was alot cheaper than where we were gonna stay and got a room with a/c, cable tv, hot shower for $9 a night. Our room was fine but they are currently building a new hotel next door and it was really noisey in the mornings so i asked if we could move rooms and they were more than happy to move us over the road which is the same place and it was fab-tastic!!! The staff were nice and helpful, location ideal (only a 5 min walk to the river side), nice cheap price and free wifi. There is also a great pub ran by and english bloke that does amazing food called 3 rivers and the staff there a brilliant we spent almost every night there. We went down to the coast and even came back and stayed another 3 nights before departing for veitnam. I really liked this place!!!!!!!

When we first arrived we got an $8 fan room which was incredibly small, hot, smelly and with a bathroom somehow crammed into one corner! Not what we were expecting given what you can get for $8 elsewhere in Cambodia but after upgrading to a $10 room we got ac, a large clean room, tv and great bathroom. Well worth paying a little more and it made a massive difference to our stay.
It has a good little restaurant which is a good place to meet people, it's in a great spot.

All in all pretty good budget accomodation.

Room Tip: Pay a little more to get a/c

This hotel had a great location. We were not in Phnom Penh for long but it was walking distance from the Royal Palace and the riverfront which suited us fine in the time we were there. It seemed like a pleasant area. They arranged a free pick up from the bus station. The room was very basic but for the price I think it was ok. The only real problem was that the air-con was useless until it had been running for half the night - so we were swealtering and unable to sleep for the first half of the night even with the fan and air-con on full bore. Also we were up lots of tight stairs which could be difficult if you have awkward luggage. The staff are polite and friendly but do not speak very good English so at first we had a lot of trouble trying to organise a tour on to HCMC... but fortunately the boss turned up who had good English and sorted it out for us. There is an open air dining area at the entrance which has very good food and good prices. Try the pineapple shakes!

The positives: good location, helpful front desk staff, sent tuk-tuk to pick us up from bus station, wifi, the room & bathroom (except for the plastic cup which was disgusting) were clean. I was able to get hot water each morning for my coffee. Easily booked bus through hotel. $15.00 for double, en suite, air con, TV room. Big room.
The negatives: A/c in our room did not work very well. We stayed 3 nights, room never cleaned. Had to take our bathroom garbage to the staff and request fresh one and more toilet paper. Cleaning people, in hallway talking loudly at 6:30 - 7:00 AM! Construction on building across the street.
My standards are not very high. You can do better.
