“Perfect Accomodation”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

Frank and Tanja really have a gem on their hands. We were quite overwhelmed to learn that Siem Reap had 4,000+ hotels/guesthouses, so when we tired of searching and booked with Bayon Garden, I was not expecting to be blown away. However, we found the rooms to be in great condition; spacious, clean, with mosquito nets and a lovely patio - all for an outstanding affordable backpackers price. They were always available to chat or provide recommendations and set us up with a tuk tuk driver for our temple day, as well as an incredible tour guide, Dani Jump, another day for a really intimate look into Cambodian lifestyle in the countryside.

We loved the fact that it was a little hard to find (not many Cambodians can even find the little side road with no street name), and we felt safe, relaxed and in good hands throughout our stay. If our itinerary would have allowed, I'm positive we would have stayed even past our 5 nights with Bayon Garden. Would definitely recommend.

Tanja and Frank run the best hotel and backpackers in Siem Reap. They are so kind, and look after their guests like family! We felt incredibly comfortable there, and enjoyed it so much we spent an extra couple of days even though we were on a very tight schedule. They have wonderful and extensive knowledge of the Angkor Temples, and how to get around, where to go, etc. Unlike most hotels, they don't charge the tuk-tuk drivers a fee for finding them business, so the tuk-tuk drivers they arrange are always attentive and knowledgeable.
They also know of wonderful alternatives to seeing the temples if you take a day off.

The backpacker room we had was seriously the most gorgeous room we had on our entire trip through Vietnam and Cambodia. We had two huge beds, a dresser, desk, balcony with lovely wooden chairs, fan, mosquito nets, and our own bathroom with a particularly delightful shower for removing the dust and sweat post- templeing. We did not have air conditioning, but found that was quite alright, even in the hot dry season of January.

The hotel is not in the center of town, but that was actually very nice. The night markets and pub street were about a five minute walk away, far enough to get out of the noise of the city (across the river) but close enough to be accessible to everything. We were able to use the pool at a nearby hotel for a small fee, which, considering our room was on the order of $10/night, was completely reasonable.

Room Tip: all rooms in the backpacker are equally delightful and quiet. The inn rooms are larger and more gran...

This guesthouse is well-run and very affordable. While the rooms are nice and clean, the proprietors, Frank and Tanya, are really amazing. Their suggestions and efficiency really helped us make the most of our limited time in Siem Reap.

The property is about a 5 minute walk outside of the city center, which is a blessing. It's calm and quiet at the property, but if you want to be in the thick of it, it's easy to get there. Because of the proximity to livestock (at a nearby property) you may want earplugs to help overcome the occasional rooster.

I highly recommend this place. You won't beat it for the price, and it was a pleasure to stay there.

We stayed in the 'backpackers' part of the set up, not the main guest house. Great value for money and you can get the breakfast at the guest house, more food than you can eat and again great value. The room was large, clean, own balcony, mossie nets, fan, good size bathroom (very powerful shower), couldn't believe it was only $10. The owners were really friendly, first beer on the house! Good location near places to eat, laundry place etc. Good tuk tuk drivers associated with the establishment, really know the best temples to go to and how to avoid the crowds. Would definitely go back.

We stayed here twice and were amazed at how comfortable we felt each time. We took the $10 backpacker room that to be honest needs to be renamed as backpacker luxury room. It has two double beds, free wi-fi, a balcony for the morning tea, clean bathroom, huge cupboard, a writing desk…almost thrice the size of any other backpacker room in the world!

It was a delight to start the mornings with this huge breakfast laid out in a beautiful balcony. The hosts, Frank and Tonja put extra effort in making sure that you get everything you need. I recommend that you book your Angkor, Floating Village and any other tours through them…its really well organised. Lastly, if you love dogs (which I do), then you'll have loads of fun playing with the hosts's two dogs.

I am sure I missed out on other tiny details…but in brief, if you are in Siem Reap for a short or longer stay, Bayon Garden is the place to go!

The guest house is only 5 minutes away by foot to the night market and Pub street. The owner is very helpfull and efficient there where ever you need something. The rooms are very good for the price with mosquito nets, fan, bathroom and good beds. I traveled with the family and I recommend it, not only for couples or back packers, but for adults with kids or baby's as well.
We will be back to Siem Reap and we will stay again at the Bayon Garden.

We were in the new area of the guesthouse, just a room, which opened in march 2012. Great rooms, brand new. Nice bathrooms, really a treat for the price after 5 months of travelling!

Owner is a German couple an he was very nice. His wife was on vacation. There was a big dog, young and a bit jumpy, but after we expressed that we did not like the jumping, the owner did everything to keep the dog low or inside!

5 minutes from town, right into the restaurant, bar and night market area. Great spot to plan your temple trips from. Enjoy the guesthouse even more by taking the breakfast every morning. Clearly fresh products from the market, and always too much!

I would go back to this guesthouse and would recommend to go there to enyone!
