I appreciate that for its price, it offers hotel-like facilities, free airport pick up, breakfast, fast and reliable wifi connection, and cable TV. The owner Sam So and his family were very warm and gracious, and very willing to help us out plan our itineraries. I the washrooms and quality of towels could be improved a bit, and I'd be...

Stayed there 4 nights and enjoyed it. The rooms are very spacious, clean and comfy, everything worked well. Excellent value. The location was good if you like to be a little outside of the Pub Street area action: one corner from the river, 7min walk to the action area, but in a little back-alley, so not much traffic noise.

The biggest plus was the cost of our stay: only about USD 8.50 per head a night. Despite the affordability, accommodations were good. Room was clean and linens fresh. We had cable TV and air-conditioning. We had our own bathroom with a western-style toilet, heated shower (though no enclosure separating shower area from toilet). Pickup from airport is also free....

Lovely. Family run, clean, affordable, comfortable. Easy walk to the markets, small bike ride away from the Temples of Angkor. VERY helpful staff. Nice breakfast! You can book most activities and transportation through the staff members working. I wish I could have stayed longer!
