“Truly combodian...”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

True to the title, they reflect the Combodian culture to the core...Simple,loving, caring and very helpful.We stayed as a couple during october 2013 and took a their guide service as well for three days.Mr.Ithy was our guide, who was very helpful and friendly during the trips.
The rooms are spacious and clean.Toilet seem to be little smaller in size with only drawback being the absence of a ventilator.They have a good collection of movies in the 1st floor lobby.And a computer for browsing as well.Wifi isnt that strong inside the rooms.
Had a wonderful breakfast as early as 5am.They can arrange Giant Ibis bus tickets as well..
Very helpful in arranging anything you ask for.

Lastly it was a great pleasure to stay in this place for one reason--PONHEARY LY. She is probably the first Real life hero we have met.Such a simple, friendly and wonderful human being.The cause for which she works makes our stay in this guest house very special.

Room Tip: all rooms are good...ask for the rooms at the rear side...

We loved our stay at seven candles! . The room was clean and well set up. The location is close to everything and the staff are friendly and eager to help. We had the best freshly squeezed juice for breakfast. The guesthouse is made even more special as it supports the PonHeary Ly foundation which is doing amazing things in Cambodia to provide education and career support for many children and young people.

Our room was roomy, quiet, clean and cool. The family are very friendly and helpful, whihc made our time in Seim Reap very enjoyable. Tuk tuks, free bicycles, information and boat/bus tickets and copious smiles were available; and great Cambodian Crepes to start our day (kitchen open as early as 5 am for an early sunrise dash to Angkor temples)
This family also supports and promotes school attendance for local Khmer kids, which is a real social issue. As advised its REALLY important to not buy things off kids or give them money when they beg; this only promotes an unhealthy excuse for them not to be in school. Giving money or even buying off kids ( or even mothers with school age kids) has huge social implications and isn't helping them. If you feel concerned or suffer from 'privilege white guilt', get online, find a good NGO's ( some are bogus) and donate to a program that supports these kids in their education NOT encouraging them to be on the streets or hanging around for the tourist rush around the various temple sites. Seven Candles houses the offices of Ponheary Ly Foundation which is one such organisation you can donate too.

Amazing !!! Best people ever ! Close to everything ! And it supports a great cause the Ponheary ly foundation. I can not recommend this highly enough. Please please stay here, you will thank me later. I could walk to any place I wanted and so close to the temples . They treat you like royalty at seven candles ... No reason to stay in a land hotel with no personality

Clean rooms, comfortable, equipped with the main facilities (AC, free wi fi runs well + pc free usage at each floor, …). The guesthouse offers also bikes available to use for free and the staff can provide you a lot of helpful tips concerning your visit and stay.
The price it is really competitive taking into account the good standard quality.
The location is perfect if you want to be not far from the centre of Siem Reap that you can reach in a short time and at the same time already in the right direction and close to the street to reach Angkor Temples area.
There is also the opportunity the take a dinner on the rooftop restaurant, very good domestic cuisine from an excellent and really kind cook. Very cosy home
I arranged my trip in Cambodia in a short time, just a few days before and it has been only about three days, coming and coming back to Vietnam included. To do it, the kind help from reservation manager has been determinant.
Ly family, and the staff, provides you all what you need for a great and really pleasant stay and visit.
One reason more: the guesthouse is involved in social project to help children and families in need.
Excellent => highly recommended

The perfect place to stay. The rooms were newly renovated, absolutely clean and inluded air-condistion as well as a fan.
Expecially because of the atmosphere and the friendly personnel I would always recommend the Seven Candles Guesthouse. Also, if anything was needed, as the organization of a day-trip to the Angkor temples or a boat trip to Battambang, everything was organized as quick as possible.
