Sidewalk Never Die Hotel Siem Reap
Ranked #230 of 384 Hotels in Siem Reap
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here a week and it was by far the best value for money accomodation throughout our backpacker trip in Southeast Asia so far. The rooms are cosy and clean, they have cable tv and air condition. You can relax in the pool area. The owner and the stuff is super nice, really laid back in the best sense of the word. You really feel at home here. I highly recommend this place.

This place is close to the Night Market which is wonderful. Easy access to the various Wats. Absolutely loved the name. We had three rooms (5 adults) and all loved the place. Older with gobs of character. Pool was nice though nothing spectacular. Still, on a warm afternoon....

We would definitely go back here. And we say this knowing that emepphire just had a horrible visit there with an unclean room That is bad. At that point you just need demand another room.
As for pressure from drivers and tuk-tuks, yes, you will get this. But you will get this everywhere in Siem Reap. If you stay here, just tell everyone no thanks as you will want the services of Kim who is a wonderful tuk-tuk driver and knows Wat history. Staff know who Kim is.
We only stayed in one place in town and so cannot speak to other locations. Still, with its great location and friendly staff, we would go back.

Loved this Hotel myself and my friends arrived quite late and staff were extremely helpful and assisted us all with our bags. When we arrived to the room it was bright, clean and comfortable. We actually could not believe how cheap it was. The next day we utilized the pool facilities which were very comfortable and relaxing. That evening the staff assisted us to arrange a tuk tuk for visiting the temples, all was arranged very quickly and at a very competitive price. The next day we sadly misplaced our bus tickets to Sihanoukville. We spoke to the manager about this and he arranged replacement tickets free of charge for us very quickly. All in all i would recommend this hotel to anybody wanting to stay in Siem Reap.

We had read some pretty good reviews about this place before deciding to check into this hotel. First night seem okay: The staff waited for us to check in as we had arrived late from a late trip from Phnom Penh. The tuktuk driver seemed friendly too, helping us with our luggage.

When we got into our room, the tuktuk driver started becoming persistent and would not leave our room. He kept asking for our itinerary and pressured us to "book his services" since he was the one who had picked us up. At this time, the hotel staff who had also helped us with our bags had left the area and we had to fend him off ourselves.

Since it was pretty late, we decided to head to bed. There came the surprise! The toilet reeks of pee and the toilet bowl had remnants of what its previous users had left behind. The bed too, just looked re-made, and as we lifted up the covers, we saw sand, hair and specks of dirt on the bed - It was just too obvious that they had not cleaned the room, but just re-made and packed it slightly after the previous inhabitants checked out of it.

The next day when we told them we decided to check out early, instead of the 3 nights that we had agreed on initially, they started asking questions about where we were going to stay, and again, kept pushing the services of that tuktuk driver who had picked us up to bring us on a tour around Angkor Wat.

He asked us a total of 4 times, and I had to repeatedly tell him that we had already booked a tour that will bring us around Siem Reap, so we didn't need the services of the tuktuk.

In short, I would never recommend anyone else to stay here. It was definitely a disappointed and good time wasted on our part. I barely slept as we had to sleep on top of the covers since the bed was soiled, and we had to go hotel hunting early next morning before being reminded repeatedly that we had to check out before 12pm after telling them we'd decided to check out after just one night. Truly the worst hotel out of my entire trip in Cambodia!!!

This hotel is located 10 minutes away from pub street, they offer a cheap and friendly Tuk Tuk service and the breakfast is extremely good. The staff cannot do more for you and treat you as one of their family. They have pcs to use free of charge and provide you with information about trips and siem reap. The reception is open 24/7 and the rooms are huge, clean with a decent hot shower and comfy bed. I cannot recommend this hotel enough for the high level of quality and service they have provided 10/10! Would definitely stay here again if back in Siem Reap.
