Panda Guesthouse
Ranked #105 of 516 Siem Reap B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 December 2013

All I could say is awesome, awesome, awesome!!! The service was great, the hotel itself was clean and new, and we truly felt that Steve, Patrick, Lyna, and Samnaeng (tuk tuk driver and pretty much a tour guide) were like family. I know, right? How could that happen by just being there for 2 days?

Well, for starters, when we first arrived at the airport, we had Samnaeng (spelling?) greet us courteously with a smile and help us with our luggage and into his tuk tuk. He was just an amazing guy; very smart, very knowledgeable of Cambodia's history, and very passionate about his dreams and goals. I know if he keeps it up, his personality and his work ethics will take him places. I totally recommend him as a tuk tuk driver, so request him when you have a chance!

When we arrived at the guesthouse, we were greeted by both Lyna and Patrick (owners), and they both were just very welcoming. They gave us many recommendations for how to maximize our stay with such a short amount of time as we were only there for 2 days. He gave set prices and made sure that prices were fair for all parties. He also recommended great eateries in the area. The guesthouse is only a few minutes from Pub Street, and everything was walking distance. For the price we paid per night, it was totally worth it, plus we got some exercise to the happening spots!

We met Steve (general manager) the first night, and he was very laid-back and very accommodating. We spoke many times actually while he let me bum a couple of smokes off of him. Haha. What was cool was that he, Patrick, and Lyna were even worried as I am Filipino, and the Philippines had been devastated by Typhoon Haiyan (and we had family there). They asked if they were OK, and just hearing that was very nice coming from people whom I had just met.

I could go on and on about this group of outstanding people, but I don't have time to write a novel. Just go to Panda Guesthouse! You are getting the best deal out there for the quality service and amenities, and you could use that saved up money for multiple $0.50 Angkor beers at that spot that Patrick recommends to all of his guests. Keep it up guys! I hope to see you guys again in the near future! Sohm Aw Ko-oon J-rahn!

We spent 9 days in Siem Reap and had a great time at the Panda Guesthouse. The Rooms are very clean, the Staff is so friendly and helpful, the Panda TukTuk-Drivers became our friends and the Guesthouse itself makes you feel like at home. The CityCenter can be reached within a 5-8 Minutes walk, we definitely didn´t want to be closer to the noisy PubStreet! We highly recommend this place and we would always book it again.
Thank you Patrick, Lyna, Steve and of course Mr. Ra for making this stay unforgettable!

Located on a quiet lane way just outside the bustle of the town centre you will find this gem of a guesthouse. Everything is new. Spacious rooms, clean bathroom/hot showers with little soaps shampoos,combs and toothbrush(which you just don't get anywhere for $10 a night), cable tv, free wifi,free tea and coffee. 4* hotel like facilities! You can arrange to be picked up by one of the guesthouse's trusted Tuk Tuk drivers free of charge from your bus station. These guys are genuine and are not out to rip you off( Mr Bird is especially great!)

The day manager Stephen is approachable and helpful as is Patrick, the owner, and his wife Lyna. They were always at hand to advise, arrange and cater for our stay and onward journey. We stayed 4 nights and couldn't stay longer because they were fully booked unfortunately.

You can upgrade to air con for an extra $5 which we did on one particularly stuffy night however this isn't entirely necessary. Book fan and decide when you arrive.

All in all a fantastic experience at this guesthouse. A perfect place to rest your head wether it be after a long day of sightseeing or a long night on pub street.

Thanks for everything guys!

We really haven't got anything bad to say about Panda Guesthouse. We were very happy with the location. The staff were very friendly and would do everything to help you in the best way they can. Our Tuktuk driver (Somneang) was next to a driver also a small guide and would help us in every way he could. Too bad the local volleyball-game didn't came through but other from that it was great. We highly recommend this hostel.

Fantastic Guest house, Hosts are very knowledgeable and friendly and able to organise any excursions through their trusted honest tuktuk drivers (some of the best we have encountered anywhere in Southeast Asia) Rooms are modern, Very well maintained and clean with everything you require. An absolute steal for the price you pay. Short 5 min (unless you are extremely unfit or crawling) walk to centre of Siem Reap/pub street, Lots of day/night markets to explore, and great places to eat and drink. Ten min tuktuk ride to Angkor Wat temples. Highly recommend

Room Tip: All rooms fitted with warm power showers.

This guesthouse is a little way out of the main town, but can easily be reaches in 10ish mins on foot or in a cheap tuktuk. It was very clean, with excellent wifi in our room, free tea and coffee and very useful travel advice. It was also a real bargain! Definitely recommended.

Really great guesthouse! Friendly hosts and clean, comfortable rooms. I think someone else's comment of "if only it was always like this" is really appropriate. We couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Great value for money
