“old but comfortable home away from home guest house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

i stayed for 3 nights at Ta Eng with my teenage children. Good homely feel to the place and all basic necessities are met like bicycle, tours, ticketing and food can be arranged at good prices. rooms are simple but clean . friendly and helpful staff. we get to experience Kampot's hospitality here. It is a short tuk tuk ride from the bus station along the river. walking is about 20 minutes. Took day tour from a young friendly tuk tuk driver with long hair to Kep and the mountains. ask for him at ta eng.

The staff is very nice, they give you all the informations you need to visit the area. With the map they gave us and the motorbike we rented we spent a wonderful time in Kampot !

It's trus that it's not near the river and the price are pretty the same than others more in the city center, but the staff is so nice ! And they can cook a fried rice for 1$, that's pretty cheap for Kampot.

I strongly recommend this GH !

I stayed at Ta Eng for 5 nights with my mum. Originally planned on staying for 2 nights but ended up cancelling other plans to stay on. The rooms are cool and airy, we just had fan and were cool at night despite hot days. Chan is the grandson of the owner Mr. Long and he does fantastic tours- we did one day exploring around caves and pepper farms and Kep, another day motorbiking (on the back of two motorbikes) up Bokor National Park- definitely a highlight. It was amazing being on back of bike, looked in pity to those in boring big tour buses. Just around the corner to street with lots of good eats, cheap drinks and delicious seafood for $3 a meal. Can use bicycle and breakfast is around $1 or cycle down to river and enjoy view. Highly recommend for those wanting a quiet and peaceful stay, not far from the action if you want also too!

Very basic room no tv, no fridge and very small bathroom. Twin with fan is 10$ and double 8$, ac is 15$ and it has tv. Better and cheaper places you can find close "salt worker" traffic circle. Good about in this place was hot shower and good wifi.

Breakfast was only $1 and the staff was very friendly. The staff speaks a little english, not a lot. The location is a bit further from the town than many of the other guesthouses, but it is easy to walk into town or take a motorbike. There is not a ton of security (no safe in the room and the keys are left right by the front door which is not always manned, but we had no problems at all. I have stayed places with greater privacy as well, but I would stay here again. It was clean and the room was fine. There was no TV, but who needs it. You have to walk down the street to buy water, but again, that isn't a big deal. It is basic and good value. The guests here were also friendly and overall I would recommend it.

Room Tip: request not to stay in the room right near the entrance. It has less privacy.

A basic, friendly, family run guest house. Some English and french spoken. It is out of the centre, but the grandson has a tuk tuk so transport not a problem. Rooms basic but clean and comfortable. Excellent value at $10! We were just passing through for 1 night, but if you are there longer, they will organise trips out for you.
