“Really nice place to stay”
Reviewed April 3, 2010

Botanica Guest house is a really nice place to stay. No air con nor hot water in the bungalows but there's no need in Kep. Stefan and the staff are all very nice and the food is delicious. The bar/restaurant is a nice place to hang around, have a drink, eat, play pool or just have talk. I'll definitely come back if I go again to Kep.

Botanica is great value for money but it is the AWESOME food cooked by lovely Kong which makes it, and the excellent service provided by the always smiling Khun and his sisters. We booked 4 of the 5 bungalows and none of us wanted to leave after 5 days. Kep is a lovely place, it is a pity it can't always stay the way it is but nothing stands in the way of progress. I hope I can get in a few more visits before the developers move in.

very beautiful guest house set in well developed gardens with all manner of exotic plantlife abound, about 2k from central Kep but bikes are available FOC. rooms are good basic fare, proper mosquito nets provided but no hot water or air con - the fan is fine and hot water in the kep heat is really not required.

stefan the owner/manager is a great guy, very friendly and helpful, the rest of the team are also great people. the food is freshly prepared and tasty, the beer is plentiful and everything is well priced.

we payed $8 per night and ended up staying longer than planned as its such a nice place to be. dont come here if you like 'fancy' there are plenty of other places that will serve you well, do come here if you want cheap, basic and charming - i would recommend this place to anyone not looking for western amenities.

We didn't stay at Botanica but we ate there. There is a pool table and loads of dishes to choose from - very tasty food and nice atmosphere.

Clean, pleasant and low-prized bungalow park
Nice kitchen, certainly when the owner cooks
Well stuffed bar with a drink list that can withstand any establishment we visit in Cambodia
For any problem or information, ask Stefaan, because he is an ex-backpacker too
