We booked the guesthouse online, they replied quickly and kindly answered all of my questions, We didn't need to pay the reservation quarantee, though I'm a little worried about it, but it proved that they run the business based on trust.
We stayed in the triple room with a balcony, the living room on the 2nd floor is nice, I enjoyed sitting at the table on the balcony. The whole guesthouse is clean, the room's small but tidy. and the location is great.
Regarding the money we paid for it, I think it's worthwhile.
The staff's always smiling and very, very helpful.
This is the guesthouse I will go staying if I shall go to Siem Reap again!

So many reviews here were positive that we gave Shadow of Angkor a chance. It is our second night here and I'm sorry to say it hasn't lived up to tripadvisor's compliments. The room is a decent size and fairly clean, but the shower is absolutely terrible. I think I came out of there dirtier than when I went in. Also, the staff have been nice enough, but their security is so lax! They can't be bothered to put the keys behind the desk, so anyone can approach the desk and grab any key they wish to any of the rooms. They do offer a "safe" which is just a cabinet also open to the public. They are in a good location if you're looking to party. Overall, I would not stay here again.

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our stay.

The rooms were of good size and the pool was great after a long days sightseeing.

The staff were very friendly and arranged a good driver called Sopall and tour guide called Vann to show us rounds the Temples.

Food was good and all this for $20.

A very pleasant guesthouse right in the middle of Siem Reap. The staff and their tuktuk drivers were very pleasant and helpful and the restaurant is good too, The arrangement to pick me up at the airport went smoothly and they found me a good English-speaking guide.

Room Tip: My back room was quite dark with only a tiny window. It would be worth paying extra for one with a b...

Really enjoyed staying here while in Siem Reap. Very central, right on the river & 1/2 block from Psar Chaa, the Old Market. Rooms were comfortable & aircon worked well, though watch out for mosquitoes as there were numerous opportunities for them to enter. Owners were friendly & helpful. They arranged tuk-tuks (at fair prices) for us whenever we needed to go somewhere. We had several hours to kill between checkout & our flight, so they let us use the pool at their other location (short walk along the river). I'd check rates at that location next time, as it was newer, even more quiet, only slightly less handy, & the pool was great. Only had one breakfast in the restaurant, which was fine - overpriced, as western breakfast always is.

Small pool with half a dozen loungers but good to have somewhere to cool off - we also paid for a balcony which was good.

Helpful staff with good english and tuk tuks.

Breakfast not included but good when paid for.

we stayed in shadows of angkor I for 3 nights arriving late at night from si phan don in laos. because we knew that we'd get there late, we called and made a reservation and they waited up for us.
renting a bike from them worked out fine and we had a nice day cycling the temples - we'd both visited the temples before and only did the ones we liked the most.
one afternoon we just chilled at the pool and enjoyed some "happy hour" beer.
the restaurant right next to the GH is good, but nothing fancy.
