Angkor Wat revisited Jan 2019”

Dear Readers This guesthouse is an excellent choice if you decide to visit Siem Reap, they can pick you up from the airport and take you straight to Sam So Guesthouse all for Free. The manager Sotheavy was very helpful as she responded to my emails quite promptly. Sotheavy helped me organise my guided tour to Angkor Wat and was very helpful in organising everything possible in the most shortest time. The accommodation is very good priced and was clean and tidy, staff were very polite and they also serve Free Breakfast which very good. I took a Bicycle Hire as you can hire a bicycle from Sam So guesthouse and you can ride your way through this quaint and buzzing town of siem reap, I truly enjoyed my short stay at Sam So and I am already planning to return to this quaint little guesthouse and to spend much more time in this buzzing town Siem Reap with so many boutiques, bars, cafes and all sorts of foods. I would recommend Sam So immensely John from Sydney Australia

Superb Hospitality & Service with Cambodian Heart”

A gem of an oasis in busy Siem Reap, owned & operated by a dear Cambodian family. This was my second stay with Sam So Guesthouse within last 6 months .. definitely a solid find if you are looking for a friendly, affordable, welcoming place to stay offering superb hospitality & service with great heart. Conveniently found at Wat Bo Village, a quick walk to center of town along little river to markets, Pub Street, restaurants, Wat Bo, Kandal Village for cool shopping @ Old French Quarter, convenient mini-mart just across the road. The guesthouse is located within their large family compound making for a quiet, pleasant, secure setting. Rooms are very clean & neat (daily housekeeping), with all mod-cons including small fridge, cable tv, air-con or fan, hot water, comfy bed, good breakfast, reliable wifi & internet available. If there's anything that needs attention in room just ask & will be taken care of straight away, always with a smile. Prompt email confirmation, complimentary airport/bus pick-up, just let them know ahead of time. Extremely capable & sincere Mr Sam So (hospitality schooled in Europe) & his family & staff can arrange everything to enjoy your stay .. tuk-tuk & driver to temples, tours, onward transport booking & tickets. While here this second time, just before Khmer New Year April 2017, Mr Sam So & his family treated their staff with a day visit to sacred Kulen Mountain National Park, as staff would need to work during New Year holiday celebrations, which was very kind & thoughful. I have truly enjoyed my visits with Sam So GH & can easily highly recommend to travelers .. will definitely return for future stays! Room tip: rooms facing direction of Wat Bo Rd. seem to be brighter & larger.

Amazing Stay, Fantastic Service”

Service, Cleanliness, Location

Sam So Guesthouse was phenomenal. It is not the fanciest place in Siem Reap, but it is really set apart by its superb service. After booking on Agoda, I made a few special requests regarding the room (A/C, extra beds, etc.). Sam So called me himself to confirm everything and scheduled a free pick up from the bus station. When our bus dropped us off at the wrong location, the hotel staff responded quickly and ensured that the driver picked us up. Over our entire stay, the staff were astonishingly helpful, helping to make reservations for tuk-tuks for sunrise at the temples and providing a boxed breakfast, booking tickets for our return bus to Phnom Penh, purchasing tickets for us to the Angkor Museum, finding us a tuk-tuk whenever we wanted to get around town, the list goes on. They were willing and able to help with everything. Some of the best service I have ever had at a hotel. In addition to the great service, the rooms were very clean, and it is a very short tuk-tuk ride to Pub Street! Thank you so much, Sam So!

Real guest house”

Stayed in Samso guest house in my trip to Siem Reap. A week back received mail from Mrs.Theavy about the stay. She is great kind person who responded to all my queries through mails. Airport free pickup was arranged as informed. Mr. Sam, Mrs. Theavy and the staff were very kind to welcome. The room given was very spacious double bed room. Had large window on two sides of the room. AC was working fine. TV and fridge are other facilities. Wifi works fast . Washroom was big and clean with 24hours instant hot water facility. Adjacent to my room, there was a balcony to sit and relax. Mrs.Theavy suggested the plan for my tour and arranged tuktuk. A big plus is we can pay using credit card even for the tuktuk trip and for the food/drinks we take here. Free breakfast and paid lunch and dinner are available at our required times. Sam So guest house is a real guest house who treat the travelers staying as guests. Highly recommended hotel to stay in Siem Reap.

Unforgettable experience - wouldn't change a thing”

close to town but far enough to be quiet, family owned, they speak good english, willing to help with anything at all, fantastic building and spotless facilities

my girlfriend and i stayed at sam so guesthouse for 3 nights coinciding with the end of the khmer new year celebrations. the town was bustling and noisy but here on this side street (really it's more of a driveway attached to a main road), their four story building is tucked away. the building is fairly new and imeccably maintained. being family owned, sam so and his wife alternate being on duty and they employ family friends and their children to help with upkeep and clean the rooms. their cousin drove us to the bus station early in the morning. sam so and his family also invited us and other guests in the building to partake in the songkran celebrations - food, drinks, dancing, the whole thing! sam so and his wife are undoubtedly the kindest and happiest hosts i've come across while traveling. period.

Big room, nice staff, close to Angkor

This is a great place to stay, especially for those looking to do Angkor (main attraction of Siem Reap). The staff are lovely, really big and comfortable room - old fashioned but nice - and we were well looked after. We had our own tuk-tuk driver organised for us for $15 a day, who brought us from temple to temple and followed our prefered route as much as possible. We spent 2 full days in Angkor Wat and watched the sunrise on the 3rd day. Highly recommend this place, one of the closest hostels to Angkor.

Wonderful owners

We have been travelling for a month and a half and this is the best guesthouse we have stayed in. Sam so the owner was there when we arrived and he was very friendly, honest and helpful. We felt extremely welcome.The rooms were very large, comfortable and clean. They helped us organise our bus to bangkok and even charged us a reasonable price. You will not meet a nice family, the whole family live on the complex. They will always say hello. They even invited us for a free drink on the last night. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Sam So for three nights, and I can confidently say I will definitely stay here again. Sam is a friendly and helpful chap, and displayed nothing but friendlyness when we arrived at 3am and staff had to wake him up to find our booking. Him and his wife treated us like guests in their own home, friendly, kind and helpful every single time we bumped into them. They arranged our trip to Angkor Wat, packed breakfast for us, and helped us find packaging for some of the delicate items we bought on the trip. I can recommend this guesthouse enough!

Fantastic Stay at Sam So Guesthouse!”

Location, staff....everything was great

My friend and I only stayed at Sam So Guesthouse for 3 nights but from the very moment we arrived (literally), we were made to feel welcome by So and staff. Later that day when I met So and he helped me book a tour around Angkor Archaeological Park, his kindness, enthusiasm and helpfulness was on par with his wife's. We had a standard twin room and it was very spacious, It's a basic room but for what you pay and the kindness you receive from ALL staff, I can't fault the place. I will highly recommend.

we really enjoyed our time at sam so guesthouse. the staff were lovely and extra happy no matter how late or early. they were happy to go out of their way to make the stay more enjoyable. the room was very clean, comfortable and quiet so a good nights sleep was had. our only negative comment regarding the room was that the water pressure for the shower was not the best, this maybe because we were on the top floor. the location is ever so slightly out of the way, pub street is only a 10-15 min walk however some of the walk is not very well lit. overall we thourghly enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend a stay here.

Lovely guesthousel and service with a smile”

big rooms, quite for sleep

A tutu driver welcame me at Siem Reap airport, and it made me feel very good. A little far from the old market but quite. big rooms, wireless wifi,simple breakfast. Price is some kind higher than other guesthouse in same level.

Friendly & helpful staff, but the room had an odor”

Price, friendly staff, good location

We chose to stay at Sam So Guesthouse because of the previous reviews. Everyone was correct about the friendly and helpful staff. The guesthouse is run by a family and they certainly make your stay great. They are super helpful and kind. They picked us up from the airport for no charge and they helped us plan our stay while in Siem Reap. My only complaint is that our room smelled like mildew. It was so bad that our clothes smelled and we had to wash them at our next destination. The room rates are super cheap though, so its hard to complain when you're only paying $10 a night! You get what you pay for.

Safe, accomodating and helpful people!”

Fast wifi access, clean rooms and bathrooms.

Sam So Guesthouse has a home away from home vibe. If you want to be in a place which is away from the noise of the city, this is the place to be. My cousin and I chose this guesthouse because of the good reviews on how they acomodate you and make sure you are safe. It is family owned at the same time they will help you as much as they can! We booked our tour with another guide but Sam So (owner) greeted them before we left for the Angkor Wat sunrise. Which was around 4:30am and prepared packed breakfast! We also had great discount and good seats at the Amazon Restaurant! This is great place if you are the backpacker type or in a tight budget.
