We stayed twice at Samsara while in Cambodia, on the way in and out of the country. I booked the place by chance and was positively surprised by the warm welcome of the owner Nicolas, and the quality of the accommodation. The rooms upstairs are very spacious. I wouldn't recommend the ones downstairs, there are a bit dark and noisy.
The pool is very nice hidden in the shade, and the staff is very friendly. Some people complain that the hotel is difficult to find, I'd agree for the first time you get there. Afterwards, it's very easy to find, and the good thing is: the hotel is far from the hustle bustle of the city.
What really makes this place unique is Nicolas: he will go the extra mile to give you advice, book restaurant, find a driver, and hotels in the country. He knows Cambodia very well, and has friends and contacts everywhere.
Regarding the rooms which are decorated with excellent taste: the beds are fantastic, and the bathroom convenient, though we never had hot water while we stayed there.
We will certainly go back at Samsara whenever we are in Phnom Penh.
