“Excellent Service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We were supposed to stay for only 4nights but my husband insisted that we extend for few more days as he loves the couple (Sam and Theavy So), and their staff. Their sweet smile, genuine thoughtfulness, and welcoming accommodation really amazed my husband'. They really made effort for us to feel, we are special. On the night of our arrival, the couple made a bouquet of fresh lotus flowers for us, as their presents for our wedding anniversary... That alone, melted my hubby's heart. We have been to 9 countries and never once did my husband, appreciated such warmth. They offer good breakfast, arranged our tours, always look after our welfare. I highly recommend this guesthouse. You will never be disappointed. We come as guest but we left as family. We already missed them... For sure, we will go back and by that time, we will bring along some friends and family-members, so they will also experience the warmth of the Sam So Guesthouse, you will never experience from other guesthouses and hostels...

Room Tip: every room is worth it. They always clean up everyday and change towels and bed sheets as well... H...

Sam So's Guest House is set on the quiet side of the river in a private cul de sac with the family attending to your every need...rooms are spacious and very well appointed especially for the reasonable money they charge per night; included is a very decent breakfast as well. Tours of Angkor Archaeological Park are well priced also. Good bicycles for rent also for a dollar a day. We love this place and you will also...

Room Tip: At the back of the building maybe even more quiet...

I stayed here with a friend and can honestly say that we would not have had such a brilliant Cambodian experience if we had been anywhere else! Sam So is the most welcoming person, and his wife and family are the sweetest and most accommodating group of people I have ever met. Their intention to invite their guests into the heart of their family is touching and Sam So is also a knowledgeable and well-organised tourguide. Any trip you want to take or experience you want to have in Cambodia (not just Siem Reap) will be planned to a T - we managed to arrange a visit to a tiny floating village that we thought would be almost impossible to organise.

Rooms and simple and clean and breakfast is fresh and delicious.

CANNOT WAIT TO COME BACK!

Everyone is so friendly at this guesthouse. They are truly like a family that make me feel so welcome and a part of it. I will never look for another guesthouse in Siem Reap because there is no need. Sam So and the employees take care of all possible needs. If any problems arise, he is quick to take care of it and make you feel as comfortable as possible.

I miss Sam So and the guesthouse dearly.

There is delicious free breakfast every day, laundry service, comfy beds, beautiful rooms, the sweetest employees, and the cutest children. What more can you want?

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every bit of it. We were welcomed by Sam So himself and his warm and friendly nature showed in all of his staff. Sam and his wife was always ready to help us with anything we needed.
The guesthouse was only a short walk from all the markets and siem reap's famous "pub street".

Ive used trip advisor heaps in the past, but this is my first review as i was compelled to pass on how great this place is. Sam is the best. Book in through his website. Let us overstay on our room as we had a late bus, and generally left us with a very good impression.
