“cheaper than around”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Stayed here for 6 nights, double (used as single) for 6$ in the main building. Then there are 4 wooden and 3 brick? bungalows and the quality changes. My room had working fan, mosquitier, cold shower in a tiny bathroom, but overall clean, no bugs even with open window. Rooms in a main building all seem small, but ok for single use..
There is good wifi, 1 PC, restaurant (breakfasts from 1.5$, mains 2$), they do tours and provide tickets (go to Smile tours for cheaper) and motorbikes. They are fair, i had to have some parts of the bike changed and they took the price down from my bill.
There is no cleaning service, they provide a towel.
There is plenty of accommodation in the centre of the town - also quiet area, you don't have to feel limited by this street.

good clean basic little guest house, nice bit of garden, restaurant bar area where you can hang out ....conveniently located in a street where there are a few other things happening but still quiet and its good value i.e. cheap and if thats not enough the owner a nice little bloke too
Oh I forgot there was free internet with a computer was available...good for all you computer junkies
I would stay there again if I was on another budget trip mind you they have some better rooms than the cheapo one I stayed so maybe it might be OK for honeymooners too..LOL

My partner and I stayed here for $5, however no hot water, and no fan. The room was a reasonable size, and it had wifi, although the wifi stuggled sometimes. The owner could not do enough to help, which made you feel great.

Would happily stay there again, although if you are going for the cheap option, ask for the front room as that has a window also, where as because we came late, we got the 2nd room, with no window.

We spent 3 nights there,in a double room with AC and hot water.
We did not ask for the breakfast when we arrived (tired after a 5-hour bus trip) and to our suprisem it was not included in the price.
The staff was nice, but the ones working at the restaurant do not spek english. But the manager is never far and comes as soon as he sees guests.
The room was quite big, with 2 beds. The bathroom was small but ok.
No housekeeping (bed, towels, or cleaning) during our stay.

I will leave today but I had two really relaxing and quiet days at Orchid. Staff is really friendly, tours are also available.
Across the street is the Blissful - best bar in town! So grab a draft there and get back to Orchid for a peaceful night!

Room is really clean, two big beds, two fans, tv and a bath with hot water = $10/day.

We hiked around town a bit to find a reasonably priced guest house and finally settled down here for 4 nights in July. It was basic, cheap and clean, and the fan was plenty cool enough at the time. We also hired scooters here for 5usd a day to do day trips into Kep! The guys were really helpful and we were able to book an overnight bus to Siem Reap from reception. The only thing is that it is a little bit out of the way - 10min walk, but Kampots reasonably small anyway!
