Stayed at Sam So Guesthouse for 2 nights. Beautiful property, clean rooms, and most of all wonderful service! Sam So was extremely kind and welcoming, as were the staff. Very affordable to stay here as well, especially considering the high quality of service! Breakfast was also fresh and delicious. Highly recommend!!!

I have stayed here twice while volunteering in Cambodia. The family has made it a home away from home. Short walk (or tuk tuk ride) from the market place or Happy Mall. Tuk tuks are always available on the street or the managers will set you up with whatever you need. Great stay and I'll always return here when in...

First of all, the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The room was clean and they upgraded us to a room with AC without extra pay. There was always hot water in the shower, the breakfast was good and all the tours we booked through them (Angkor temples, floating village) were great. We had an amazing time staying there, best...

After I read all previous reviews on this property, I can only say they are all true. The hosts are very charming and helpful, they can arrange practically everything that comes to your mind, including a free tuk-tuk on arrival, and so on. However, what none of the previous reviews mentioned is what happened to me. My girlfriend and I...
