    For the price this is a winner! Quiet but only a few steps from a busy street with restaurants, bars and travel agencies, a ten minute walk to Pub Street, bicycles for rent ($1/day) for tours at Angkor, whatever you wish for breakfast, extended family living next door very happy to have you there and sincerely willing to help and be there for you. Big room, large windows with mosquito nets. Free coffee and tea!

    Unfortunately the in S.E.Asia hotels are skipping mosquito nets over beds.

    Really friendly and helpful staff. Great value and a comfortable room.

    We opted for a room without A/C and it was pretty stuffy at night.

    Their location is near the old market and pub street They have services like free pickup from the bus station

    Their price for tuk-tuk is too expensive. They charged us $25 for the outer circle while the market price is only $18 Plus, their price for car renting is $70, yet the market price is $60. The facilities there is too bad

    Staff were very helpful and friendly. Booked all guides and trips through the guest house - circus is really amazing, recommended. Let us shower before our flight after we had checked out - very accommodating. Drove us to a dinner reservation. Room is basic but comfortable. Wifi worked the whole time we were there, with no issues. Only had one meal there, which was tasty.

    Pillows and bed had a bit of a musty smell to them, pillowcases might help this or using synthetic fabrics.

    Sam So Guesthouse is a great place to stay - only about 10 minutes' walk from the popular Night Market / Pub Street, while being situated in a quiet courtyard itself. Breakfast was simple but good and the owners are very friendly and helpful. We had a great time, and would recommend renting bikes directly from the hotel to visit the temples (a dollar per day per bike, and so much fun!).

    Room could have been a little cleaner and everything was a little worn, but really, at this price, Sam So is a great place to stay!

    Guesthouse is 5-10 minutes walk from main old market area. This makes it a nice and quiet place to stay. It is a good value for money especially since the facilities look more like a 3 star hotel than a guesthouse.

    Very friendly and kind staff. The room was very spacious and always cleaned well. I enjoyed its peaceful environment.

    Airport pick up staff misunderstood the appointed time, but it's just a small mistake.

    The staff are warm and friendly, the rooms large, and bicycles are available for rent at $1 per day. The shower was good and, although seemingly like all others in Cambodia in the middle of the bathroom, it was at least possible to direct it away from the toilet. The guesthouse is some way from Pub St ... probably 15 mins walk. Definitely a good place to stay.

    The tiny tiny soaps: one for the whole three nights I stayed and, like the small amoint of toilet paper, never renewed. Also I felt the staff were probably missing an opportunity to provide more information on tours and on the general area. Taking my shoes off every time I came in and out was a bit of a pain in my large lace-up shoes ... but I guess that is my problem.

    Staff are very helpful, friendly and try to be as accommodating as possible. Very helpful with booking buses to Phnom Penh and Battambang, and tuk-tuks for the temples. Know less about other destinations in Cambodia. Beds are not hard. Good sleep. No street noise, but the kids that play in front of the house start getting noisy from 7 onwards a couple of the nights I was there. Can't hear noise between rooms. If you go early to the temples for sunrise, they will pack your breakfast for you. The rooms all seem to be about the same size, just a different number of beds in them. Breakfast is okay. Instant coffee and tea that you can serve yourself. Choice of type of egg with some toast. A couple of slices of fruit.

    The pipe in the bathroom sink leaked, so you got splashed with dirty water as you washed up, which was not appealing at all. The triple room that I saw had three double beds in it and room for little else. Since I was just one person, I actually asked to be moved since I could barely move around - which they did. Cobwebs and dirt on the lights and the window screens looked like they'd been there a while. Too far from the shops and restaurants in town if you walk. There are a couple of local places nearby but at least a 15-minute walk to the edge of the shopping/restaurant district, which is not what I was expecting from the description.

    Very friendly staff.

    If you book a room with a fan they just put one on the floor. This is not as convenient as one on the ceiling. And I do not like to shower above the toilet. But considering the price per night it is great value for money for backpackers.

    The staff were very friendly and welcoming to us. They even gave us wake up calls when we asked as we had broke our phones. The location was very good with the night market and bar street with in walking distance. We stayed in their rainy season and at one point the whole of Siem Reap had a power cut. The owner gave us a high power torch to help us until the issue was resolved all with a smile.

    Staff and owner very kind, close do the main area, night market restaurants and pubs but far from the noise. Place very cosy, rooms and forniture cleaned. I suggest this place, I really felt home.
