“Reconsider”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

$3 is a fair price... If they were paying you. To put it mildly we risked life and limb with the plug sockets removed from the wall, increasing the chances of electrocuting ourselves upon arrival.

The room was super dirty, cupboard doors didn't close, foot marks on the walls, absolutely disgusting bathroom with mould on all handles. With a fake air conditioner placed in our room.

To conclude simply, home sweet home is anything but. I would aptly rename it "satans guesthouse". Perhaps even "death roe". Either would perfectly suit the cockroach ridden sespit that is home sweet bloody home.

2 stars because the room was decent, but our wildly overpriced private tuk tuk driver LEFT US in the middle of Angkor Wat, and the owner was incredibly nasty and accusatory about it when we returned.

Generally a terrible experience; the rooms are cheap so the owner can try to corner you and force tours on you. Not a pleasant experience, and since there are similarly priced places all around, save your money and book elsewhere (in fact, you'll even save money because they overcharge so egregiously for tours).

we arrived without booking and were quoted a price which was waaaaaay above everything which could be found on the internet (including their own website). But it was late, and obviously the owner clearly noticed that we had no choice... Ok fine, that's part of the game of not booking in advance..
The next morning we then asked to get the regular price for the following nights, which was refused... so we basically checked out, and checked in again over their own website using their wifi... ridiculous! But I have to say location was good and the rooms were big.
But no hot water (even if we "booked" and paid the price for a room which was supposed to have hot water according to their homepage). And if you like rats, then you should be more than happy, there was a whole family runing under the fridge at the entrance and on the terrace...
well Angkor is amazing, and this is a cheap option to stay in a central location... but don't expect too much on sympathy and quality...

This is a wonderful guesthouse in Siem Reap, just outside of town. Good service, great food and nice staff is what makes it worth to stay in this guesthouse. The large rooms are equiped with fan and have aircon if you want it. Daily clean with fresh towels, soap and drinking water. Owned and run by a Cambodian family. This is great value for your money!

Without doubt the best value I found in Siem Reap, large fan room with a spotless bathroom, all cleaned daily with fresh towels and a bottle of drinking water each, only 6$. Friendly staff, no complaints at all about the hotel. Perfect location as I cannot imagine why anyone would stay in the noisy night market area and this is just a few minutes away but far enough to be quiet.

However do NOT book your 10$ VIP bus to Phnom Penh with them, the bus was filthy, had air con that didn't work and crawled along beeping it's horn for more passengers so took 9 hours to make a 6 hour journey! A slow local bus is fine by me but not at aircon prices.

I have bad experience by staying in this hotel due to the receptionist who was not honest. I asked him to make a phone call to car driver which I already booked by email before I arrived, and he dialled the wrong number to make it impossible to contact the driver. He also charged me coffee higher price from the list of menu.

Besides the above, the location of this hotel is also far from the Night Market.
I will never stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: There are a lot of backpacker hostel or even five star hotels which locations are near the Night Mar...

This guesthouse is well located in the center of Siem rep, 5 min walk to all the shops. What I liked the most was the services, the staff is very helpful and welcoming. It's possible to book for the attractions, bus, make the change etc... I'm stay 3 days there, and the last day the bus was supposed to pick us up at 6:30 PM, and even if we have already check out the manager allowed us to take a shower in one of the room. Really nice
