Kim Samnang Guesthouse
Ranked #192 of 334 Phnom Penh B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Sunday Guesthouse was a nice place to stay in Phnom Penh. There are plenty of similar options and we didn't bother to compare, so here is a breakdown of what we liked and what we didn't like so much:

+ price
+ big beds
+ good food
+ organized tours
+ nice hangout area
+ nice family

- low shower pressure!!!
- a bit far from the action
- internet is not stable on the upper floors

I didn't read the other reviews, for us there was no problem and we will go back there and maybe also go to Sunday Guesthouse in Sihanoukville.

Room Tip: Upper floor has a nice hangout area, but internet is not good.

Everyone has different experiences so perhaps we were just unlucky. We found the guesthouse out of the way, run by unfriendly staff happy to take money without being helpful, and worst of all - dirty. Our bedsheets and towels were stained and smelled, the room was not cleaned well, toilet did not always flush, the sink dripped. We were asked to move rooms half way through because they had overbooked - no compensation was offered, the room was full of mosquitoes because the windows were broken. The family adopted the main reception as their home changing baby diapers, and chasing children to feed them while having the kids play loudly with toys or scream. I live in Vietnam and travel Asia so I know budget means compromise. But this place was far from value for money. Give it a miss - there are plenty of other places that offer more for the same price.

I stayed here for 2 nights with 2 friends, one male and one female. We had a triple room with a/c and a hot shower. We were all very impressed with the family orientated feel from the hostel. Nothing was too much trouble. We had even seen a restaurant we wanted to visit that the tuk tuk drivers couldn't find and the manager rang them to ask for directions. Also, on our last night our pre booked tuk tuk to the airport let us down and they organised another for us at very short notice. The wifi connection was very good throughout the guest house, even in our room. It isn't the most modern decor but still very clean and comfortable. The location is a little further away from the sights and the riverside but easily accessible via cheap tuk tuk ($2-4) and much quieter at night as a result. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again if we visited.

I met people paying almost the same price for a dorm as I did for a double private in this place. The hotel itself is a little run down but everything is clean and works. The staff are extremely helpful and speak great English if you're looking to buy bus tickets (although I would just walk down to the bus station near the central market as it is cheaper and they speak English down there). Laundry is also a little pricey, I would hold off until your next stop or find somewhere else. Apart from that a decent place to stay.

We had a nice stay at this guesthouse. The room was clean a nice and we didn't even need an aircon room, cause it was very not too hot inside. The staff was nice and helpful. I would recommend this guesthouse even though it is quite a walk from the very center of the city. It is not far from the Genocide museum though.
