“forget the rest - this is the best”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

So good we stayed with Prohm Roth twice! The prices are great - Trip Advisor has the wrong price - single rooms start at $7.00 per night, doubles at $13.00 per night with a good fan - and breakfast included!!! If you want aircon, its just a bit more, and if you have mates - they have triple rooms too.
We first came in 2010, planned to stay in Siem Reap for three days. However Mr Meang and the Prohm Roth family - whose other guest house is near pub street -were so welcoming and helpful - we ended up staying for 10 days!
So when we decided to come back in 2012, we called up, and they made room for us at their new B+B The Prohm Roth Inn.
Here we found the chilled out vibe of Wat Bo village, and a whole new part of the city. The manager and staff were so brilliant, picking us up from the airport, and giving us a really clean, modern and comfy room. The location of the guesthouse is great because you can still get to pub street, but you are nearer the local community and the small temples and pagodas by the river.
The breakfast is delicious, my favourite is cheese omlette with fresh local baked baguettes, and Cambodian coffee, which is included in the price of the room.
We began in a room with aircon, but they kindly let us downgrade to fan as we wanted to stay for longer and needed to save a bit of cash. We ended up staying for nearly three weeks - so they gave us a great rate on the room. Some people stay for longer - its like home!
Luckily the b+b is in a shady location, so its nice and cool throughout the rooms and in the chilled out courtyard. At the moment all their flowers are out, they smell amazing and the plants are all so beautiful!
The best thing is the staff, they treated us like family, and nothing was too much trouble. All our temple tours were amazing - their tuk tuk drivers are knowledgable, and with great English skills, they told us all we needed to know and more. We highly recommend both their guesthouses

Room Tip: Although the view is not so good, I think the rooms at the back of the hotel are best. Luckily, each...

We booked with this guesthouse because some friends recommended it as they had an excellent stay there. Booking was very easy via email, they also picked us up from the bus drop-off in thier own Tuk-Tuk. This was a great start after a long journey as we could ignore the throng of other Tuk-Tuk drivers who jumped at us as soon as we stepped off the bus.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, also they ahd a great sense of humour! While checkin in they tols us we could use thier Tuk-Tuk for free lifts in and out of town every eveing for free if we wanted. We had free internet (pc and wifi) and a great breakfast every morning.

We used several of the Inn's services, such as laundry and tours. The laundry was cheap and completed to a high standard. We used the Tuk-Tuk tours as a way to get to the furthest out temples too, it was only $25 for a whole day, this proved to be excellent value.

We found Siem Reap to be our favourite place in SE Asia (after visiting Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and finally Cambodia). This was partly due to the staff at the Prohm Roth Inn. The brothers who run it have another guest house closer to town called the Prohm Roth Guesthouse. We had little experience of this place but would assume it is as good as the Inn.

All in all it was a great recommendation for ourselves and we think it was worth passing the recommendation on.

Excellent!

Room Tip: We heard no complaints about the different rooms.

Dear guests,
Warmest greetings from The Prohm Roth Team. Happy Khmer New Year to you and all! On behalf of my bunch of boys (brothers, cousins and uncles), I would like to again express our sincerest gratitude to you and others for patronizing our family run guesthouse & inn. Your every word counts, and such positive/affirmative words counted as great force & source of encouragement for everyone here. You're the main reason of our existence! We do hope that other people will get to enjoy Siem Reap and pleased to stay at our inn also.
And we are hoping TripAdvisor will correct the wrong average room rates for us. It should be from $7 to $25, NOT $24 - $30 like shown on the list of accommodation in Siem Reap. Thank you so much for taking time to write your comment for our inn!
Best wishes from Siem Reap, Meang

An absolutely fantastic stay in Siem Reap. This inn is run by a family of brothers (along with another inn closer to the centre of town) and all are very friendly, helpful and interested in their guests. We hired bikes in order to get around, and get to Angkok Wat, yet you can get a free transfer from one inn to the other by tuktuk (simply walk to the other inn and ask for a lift). Breakfast was good, served in the open lounge area at the front of the building. We awoke early to cycle to Angkor Wat and 'woke' the younger brother who was sleeping in a hammock in the lounge, in order to unlock the gate - not a problem though!

Room Tip: Hire a bike to get around town

Stayed here for 3 nights after first spending 2 nights at Garden Villiage (cheaper more backpackery option).

The hotel was perfect. The manager is always smiling and willing to help. My room was huge, spotlessly clean, and a hot shower which is a treat in Cambodia. At $7/night it was exceptional value (though it is not too hard to find a guesthouse for $5-6 this was better than the 5 that I checked out).

Some people will not like the location, as it about 2km from pub st. But this is only $1 in a tuk tuk (always parked in front of the street) and personally I think pub st is pretty crap anyway... the location is hardly the middle of nowhere, as there are 5-6 guesthouses on the smae st (each with a bar/restaurant) and also, make sure you check out the pool on the end of the st (20m from Prom Roth) they only charge $3 entry, but it is beautiful and you can stay as long as you like.... perfect option for a day off from the temples! And trust me, 3 days straight under tha baking sun is too much!

I am very tough to please... but I absolutely loved this place. (Even if I am very lukewarm on both Siem Riep and Angkor Wat!)

Room Tip: I would stay on the top level for better sleep, all rooms looked very quiet to me, as there is no tr...

Dear guests,
We really value your feedback and words of recommendation. We do hope that those who had stayed with us would get some good experiences similar to yours also. It's a matter of family affair. So i am very happy that my uncles, brother and cousins stationed at our INN were able to serve everyone well despite of their limited English skill. I am so proud of them and we all would like to invite other travelers to come and stay with us. Support family-run businesses is helping local economy. You know that the money doesn't fly out of the country.
Best regards,

We moved here from Golden Takeo. The Prohm Roth Inn is run by brothers who are always smiling, and exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are $8 - almost half the price of our previous accommodation, but with no breakfast included. However, I'd recommend the breakfast for an extra $1.50, especially the pancakes. There's a pool table in the garden which is good for a laugh. The rooms are comfortable and big, with air-con and excellent wi-fi. You get free water, and the staff can't do enough for you. They also own Prohm Roth Guesthouse which we didn't get to on our trip, but is at a similar price and closer to the centre. Highly recommended.

I'm already 5 months travelling trough Asia and this is definitely one of the best hostels I stayed in! The staff is extremely friendly, the rooms are clean and cosy. There is a big balcony. The wifi works perfect! They also have reliable tuktuk drivers who can bring you to the tempels. You can eat breakfast for 1.50 USD, tea or coffee included! I really love this place! Feels like home!
