“dreadful with vile staff”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We only stayed here as recommended by a tuk tuk driver.
We were charged $20.00 for a blood stain on a sheet. I have never been so humiliated in my life by such an odious and rude member of staff.
The towels were filthy and smelt foul too.
The rooms are noisy, dirty and we were kept awake by a hooker moaning for half the night in a room on the other side of the corridor.....

GBT Guesthouse had much staff available although everyone wasn't that helpful. The smell in the room wasn't pleasant at all. Our room had a problem with ants and some rats (which also includes dirt from them). I wouldn't go back.

Sure, the tuk tuk drivers get a commission for bringing guests: two dollars, which is not added to the guests' bill. It's a fairly common practise in which other hotels in the area participate. Having said that, GBT 3 guesthouse has a great location, right near the beach and shops, and in the same street as all the diving operators. Sihanoukville being a spread-out city, this is definitely a selling point.

We stayed here twice. Room prices went up in the meantime, due to high season setting in, but remained competitive. The rooms were spacious and clean, minor problems were fixed promptly, and since all the staff communicates via handheld transceivers, orders (to the restaurant kitchen, to the cleaning staff) were also carried out promptly.

The staff was business-like but courteous. All in all, an efficient operation and a good jumping-off point for dive trips or looking around for a place to stay in a more remote and quiet part of the area.

This place is linked with the bus company that is linked to the Tuk Tuk drivers who get a commision for taking you there. We arrived late and were tired and grumpy! It is very expensive and a s*** hole. Bathrooms were filthy. It had air con and wifi but the staff were rude! Apparently a good location but we left as soon as we arrived the next morning. I would not reccomend this to anyone!

GBT - brilliant location and reasonable rooms, at $8 a night with hotish water you certainly can not complain. The power in Sihanoukville regularly cuts out and hotels have independent generators, some seem reluctant to turn them on as they are very expensive but we didn't have any problems with this. In general electricity is expense so be prepared to pay a premium almost as much as the room for air con. Great restaurant next door called New Sea Ville - as the busy season has just come to an end they offer $10 for 2x starters and 2x mains perfect for couples and regarded as the best food in the area.

We stayed her for 2 nights.The rooms were cheao and fine. The staff were extremely rude and condescending. The room i stayed in was in a row of rooms facing each other. There is a strict no noise after midnight policy, which i hear is enforced. Whatever dodgy dealngs and people were staying in the room opposite were ignored despite roaring and shouting until 4am, keeping everyone awake. We moved asap.

I paid 10 dollars for a single room with tv and private toilet. It's quiet close to the beach and the staff is ok but the room has very little light and it's not very comfortable, it's the best you can get for such little price, for 15 and 20 you can improve a lot your room anywhere else.
