Reviewed 24 November 2010

Having worked in Cambodia for 2 years, I have done a fair bit of travelling within Cambodia. And seldom have I found good service from the local staff unless it's an expensive place. To my surprise, I did find it at Bloom. The local staff were very nice and friendly especially the front desk lady, Kagna. She is very friendly, spoke decent english and was very accomodating. But I think for me a big advantage was the owner who is also the manager of the guesthouse. It helped having a foreign owner whom I can have a decent conversation with and could answer my questions with regards to Siem Reap. Diana has been living in Siem Reap for a number of years so she knows Siem Reap pretty well. She was around to greet me upon arrival and provide assistance should I need any help.

But the most important thing that made me feel it was well worth staying at Bloom is the fact that Diana is in Siem Reap to help the local women empower themselves. Besides the guesthouse, she also has a bag business. Both are social enterprises and her main aim is to empower women by giving them jobs with Fair Wages so that they have a good stable income and in the process improve their lives. So by staying at Bloom guesthouse, I am indirectly helping the people in Cambodia as well.

Of course besides all these, there are other factors to consider but those didn't let down either. I stayed in a room that is overlooking the garden that is really lush and nice. And because of the trees, the room kept cool even though the fan and aircon was off which is really nice because I don't get that overwhelming feeling of heat when I stepped into the room after a hot day out.

The location is not so accessible but the guesthouse has a group of tuktuk drivers whom they use regularly and will gladly call them for you should you need transport out. I have to make clear though that the guesthouse is very firm in that they don't collect commission from the drivers so you don't pay more even if you book a tuktuk through them. I find this better because at least the guesthouse knows which driver took me out should anything happen. The other thing is the wifi. It wasn't working when I was there but Diana promised to check on it by calling the internet company.

Overall it was a great stay at the guesthouse. It is really peaceful and quiet. A good place to relax after all the crowd at the Angkor temples. I would definitely go back there again to stay.

By the way, after a night at Bloom, I moved out to Soria Moria because a friend who flew in to join me wanted to stay there. But I didn't like my stay at Soria Moria and wished I was back at Bloom.

Though just minutes from the Angkor Temple Complex Entry and the center of Siem Reap, Bloom Garden Guesthouse is a surprisingly secluded oasis of SE Asian hospitality.

The attention to detail began days before I arrived. I came with two friends on their first visit to the Temples of Angkor. It seemed every need was anticipated: a shiny new tuk-tuk with an English speaking driver was waiting at the bus stop when we arrived, drinks were served as we checked in. It felt like staying in the home of a childhood friend; easy yet meaningful conversations and extremely mindful care.

A room with windows over gardens of tropical flowers and mosquito netted beds were both beautiful and added to the feeling of being hidden away. 5-star mattresses made for a deep and restful sleep. The simple breakfast was served in the cabana surrounded by orchids and more. The very clean room had an at-cost minibar, cable tv, hot water shower.

What I like most was the feeling of "going home" even though it was a first time visit. The rather bumpy ride up to the gate was the thing I liked least.

It was my first time to Siem Reap this October. We had an amazing time that was complimented best by our stay at the newly opened Bloom Garden Guesthouse. The staff was great. Really friendly, and VERY accommodating. The guesthouse provided free transportation to and from the bus station. Also provided was a tuk tuk driver who was really friendly and spoke English well, this, however; at your own cost. The guesthouse is about a 10 minute drive from the heart of Siem Reap, nestled in a very beautiful, lush, and private garden. Sitting out on the balcony of the guesthouse, it is absolutely serene. For a moment I had to remind myself where I was, as there was no noise other than a few birds softly chirping. The internet was a little bit finicky, but it didn't really matter because there were many other places in town that had WiFi.The room we stayed in was beautiful and clean, and the beds were REALLY comfortable. I haven't had such a good sleep in a long time! The breakfast that is included was delicious! Made hot to order, it came with toast, a fried tomato, eggs (done how you prefer), and hot or iced coffee, or tea, followed by a plate of fresh fruit. This guesthouse is extremely good value. Our overall experience here was great! So great, I'm going back next weekend!

I have visited Cambodia five times and never would I have thought such existed but it does!

Bloom Garden Guest House is absolutely new and beautiful villa with spacious rooms (20 sqm), top-rate wood furnishing (great mattress!) and best of all, large windows that open out to lush greenery. Toilets are considered luxurious by guest house standard.

I guess the materials used for this guest house are top notch as this villa was specifically built to house management staff of a 5-star hotel across the road, while the hotel was being built. Guests like me are now reaping the benefits!

Not only is the guest house absolutely clean, the gardens are well-maintained ... has two swings, which is a nice touch.

Location is an easy 7min ride to Pub Street area and about 10mins to the main temples.

Definitely recommend it. In fact, I've already booked for a repeat stay next month. Very reasonable peak-season price of US$20 includes a simple but adequate breakfast. More details on rates and pix on http://bloomguesthouse.com/rooms.html

Minor setback : Lane leading to guest house from the main road is somewhat bumpy but that is to be expected of villas situated off the hustle & bustle of the traffic. This is a tiny 2-min setback considering it's a heavenly sanctuary that awaits!
