“Chic elegance meets exceptional service”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

My wife and I have just returned after spending 3 days in Siem Reap. Our stay at Maison 557 was one of the highlights of our vacation. The attention to design detail as well as the personal touches such as the thank you note from Jeff on departure, a surprise cake for my wife's birthday, remembering our friend's dietary preferences to generously allowing us a very late checkout, place Maison 557 as amongst the best for service excellence. Jeff is a fantastic host and we enjoyed his company.

The room was elegant and chic, like the rest of the property. Clearly, lot of attention has been paid to design aesthetics. Returning to Maison 557 each day after our travel felt like coming home. The calm serenity, lush greenery of the property and a dip in our private pool was so refreshing.

Breakfast is fantastic with a selection of muesli, fresh juice, fruit (some from the garden), fresh bread, rolls and croissants. The selection of jams included guava and watermelon, made at Maison 557.

Location is ideal - a short walk across the river is the Market and Pub Street. Also there are several good restaurants within walking distance. The Angkor Archaeological Park is a 20-30 minute tuk-tuk ride.

Also, do ask for Mr Roth, the tuk-tuk driver associated with Maison 557. He will take you around and show you the sights and is quite an entertaining guy.

I highly recommend Maison 557 and hope to return soon!

Staying at Maison 557 was hands down the highlight of my first trip to Southeast Asia. Philippe and Brian were the most incredible and welcoming hosts. We came to Siem Reap with a few ideas for how to spend our vacation, but they helped us plan everything from hidden gems to amazing restaurants and spas. The tuk-tuk driver affiliated with Maison 557 always had an adventure planned for us too! The room and grounds were gorgeous and felt like an oasis after a long day of temple treks and riding out to the floating villages. The room was hands down the nicest room I have ever stayed in all of our travels with a private deck where we could lay out and read overlooking the pool. The artistic touches make it truly special. The morning breakfast that comes with your stay was always a lavish spread of fruits, pastries and yogurt with muesli and even if we wanted to sleep in we would set an alarm to make sure we didn't miss it! I have recommended Maison557 to ALL of my friends, it is without a doubt the best place to stay in Siem Reap and also a destination if you are considering traveling at all to Southeast Asia. We miss Brian and Philippe already, and are thinking of coming back for our honeymoon!

My husband and I stayed at maison557 from October 13 - 16, 2013. From the moment we walked through the front gates into the courtyard we were blown away by the scenery. Beautifully manicured gardens, stylish bar, and serene fountain. We met Philippe and Brian and they chatted with us for a while before showing us to our room. We booked a standard room, but there wasn't anything standard about it. It was beautifully renovated and the large open shower was a real treat. And of course, right off our patio was a view of the pool, surrounded by garden, trees and the occasional butterfly. But it wasn't only the rooms and grounds that made maison557 the place to stay. It was the warmth and kindness of Philippe and Brian. They always greeted us when we left the b&b and when we arrived back, wanting to know how our day was. They recommended great restaurants in the area and suggested a tuk tuk driver that made our exploring in and around Siem Reap that much more enjoyable. We really feel that by staying at maison557 we were able to see parts of Siem Reap that we otherwise would have missed. We could not recommend maison557 highly enough.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any room.

From the minute we walked off the busy street through the gates into the oasis that is Maison557 we were made welcome by Brian and Philippe. They are excellent hosts who made every effort to make sure that our visit to Siem Reap was one to remember forever. The place oozes style and sophistication, every detail has been carefully considered. The garden and pool areas are a lush tropical paradise. The room was well appointed and stylishly decorated. The breakfast was generous and delicious. Highly recommended, will stay there again for sure if we ever return to Siem Reap which is highly likely as we only had two nights there and not enough time at the temples.

Maison 557 is a quiet haven on Wat Bo street. No detail is overlooked at this beautifully designed and decorated Maison d'Hote. The lush garden and pool makes for a wonderful private retreat. Rooms are lovely - the outdoor showers a nice touch. The owners go out of their way to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Maison 31 August till 6 th September 2013. A special birthday celebration with special friends. Brian and Philippe made our stay perfect. No request was overlooked, full attention to the small matters that really shout, " We are taking great care of your needs". Two bottles of bubbly and some great snacks prior to the birthday bash big night out. We just cant express adequately our enjoyment of Maison 557. Stay there if you can, it worth it, close to town, great generous breakfasts and the meals by request...dont miss it !! 11 out of ten. Jules and Kim

Room Tip: Outdoor shower room, splendid

We stayed at Maison557 this summer for 6 nights and could not have been happier with our choice. The rooms were beautiful, spacious, and ours had a wonderful outdoor shower. Our two teenage kids stayed in the room next to ours which was a perfect set up. One other major benefit was that the rooms were perfectly quiet. In fact, it was probably the quietest room I have ever stayed in which made for a really great nights sleep. Breakfast was a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds. We also had dinner there one evening- The meal was served in the main house which was beautiful and serene. The food and wine were great. The atmosphere , quality of the food and surroundings -it was magical. The pool is lovely, very relaxing, with gorgeous landscaping and zen like decoration. Phillpe and Brian will help you with everything from planning out your temple visits to dinner reservations to drivers. No need to make yourself too crazy before hand. Lastly we were there in the the summer /rainy season. Well -except for maybe a very brief rain every now and then-the weather was perfect- not too hot - mosquitos were not bad. And best of all the temples were not crowded -we had parts of Ankgor Wat to ourselves. Fantastic country and Maison557 is a fantastic place to stay in Siem Reap.
