          Best hotel in 4 months travelling SEA”

          Lovely staff, wonderful owner, pool outsde the room. Perfect for my family. Location is a 1-Dollar-TukTuk or 15 minute walk to pub street and old market. I loved to be within "the real life" next to schools and children playing and having my comfortable big room with all the faciities and with the best shower I've had in 4 months of travelling southestasia. I LOVED the provided conditioner. We found a local pace to eat really good for 1 dollar just two minutes walk from the Villa on the main street. For some fancy resturants you need to search and go further. I LOVED my stay.

          We stayed here for 4 nights, room was spacious and clean. Staff where very accommodating. Shower was good with plenty of hot water. Breakfast is available here but we didn’t partake, there is tea and coffee making facilities in the room and a brilliant little French bakery just 2 minutes away. The hotel is about 1Km from the town centre and costs 2 dollars for a Tuk Tuk ride into the centre. There is a saltwater pool which is kept clean, very nice.

          I loved staying in this place. I had a little trouble with the cleanliness of the toilet upon arrival, but the staff were quick to help sort it out. Standout features are : 1. Big, clean, modern rooms 2. The saltwater pool (absolutely to die for on a hot day) 3. The owner (Mrs Sotheavy) was so kind and helpful. Also very responsive to any queries via email 4. The excellent staff - they accomodated to all my requests including packing breakfast for me at 430 a.m. when I had my sunrise tour at Angkor Location is easily accessible by tuk-tuk. Alternatively it's about a 15 minute walk to the town centre. I would absolutely recommend this place and would come back again.

          Very Unique Place ”

          This new hotel was a gem as it relates to being off the beaten path and being different. I loved the large room with the great shower and balcony. The pool was right out side my door and this place is simply special. The bed was great and made for a restful sleep after exploring the ruins and hanging out at Pub Street. As others might have said it is a little out of the way. It is a 5 minute tuk tuk right to Pub Street and you can walk to nearby restaurants. There was a french style restaurant nearby I walked to and the food was great and the Banana Foster was superb. The breakfast was filling and tasty and the staff was wonderful. They helped me get a bus to my next destination and I really enjoyed my stay at this location. I met other great travelers and had a good time. I would highly recommend. A little different and a lot better. I do have to add one thing. I had a tuk tuk drive who I called Mr. Black. He was fantastic. Ask for him.

          beautiful rooms and access to lovely pool with jets. i stayed at sam so's guesthouse a few years ago and had a great time so had to check out his new hotel this time around. it's a 15 minute walk to the central bit of siem reap but a welcome oasis away from pub street. the rooms were great and the breakfast is delicious and included. would definitely stay again! pool is beautiful surrounded by lush plant life. the staff are always ready to help.

          If you're the first time in Siemreap, it's a hard quest to get to the hotel. That seems that no one around knows about it. But after all you are in a small cute oasis. It's close enough to the Pub Street and Night Market, we got there on foot in 10-15 minutes. Staff is great, wifi is good. Breakfast is rather simple, but ok. Be sure to try the pool with hydromassage. As a negative, the hotel is going to be a little bit old, there is some rust, stain and so on, but this is just for snobs and women )

          Away from the central frenzy but still close enough if you need a dose”

          Sam So is solid, a lovely little gem of a boutique villa 15 to 20-minutes by foot from Siem Reap's backpacker zone. Lest you think all the action's down there, nope; plenty of eateries, booze joints and cafes lie east of the river, esp. along Wat Bo Rd and the lanes crisscrossing it. Sam So staff were welcoming and cooperative during our stay and even made us Khmer style noodles for breakfast. We met the co-owner and he bought us a beer and we all had a good chat on the rooftop. Our room was on the 2nd floor, and while the space was bright, the room was east facing. This was okay what with the blackout curtains drawn across the balcony but the bathroom area has a narrow panel of unblocked glass above the shower that was penetrated by the 5:30 a.m. sunlight, waking us too early. Sam So rents decent "old lady" bicycles: free for use in the city and a couple bucks a day for Angkor commutes. Would stay here again.

          Booked this last minute and were so happy with our choice. The room was clean and spacious, the breakfast was filling and the pool was refreshing after a hot day. We can't say enough good things about the staff. They went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable stay and they are all such wonderful people. Some people may be reluctant about the location as it is down a darker alley, and a bit of a walk away from the more touristy area, but this is what we loved about it. We never felt unsafe and we enjoyed our interactions with the students and teachers at the nearby school and with the locals who lived in the area. We would not hesitate to stay at the Sam So again.

          Best stay ever”

          Stop looking for a place in Siem Reap and go to Sam so boutique hotel. Is the best stay we've ever had. The place it's very new and extremely nice. The pool is amazing and the rooms are great, we stayed in the cheaper ones and had every comfort you may need. What impressed us the most was the hospitality of the people. We felt right at home and they helped us plan our trip to Angkor. They even arranged a tuktuk for us for a great price and the driver was the best, great English and some Spanish, he took us all around Angkor and the city. I can't even state all the details that made our stay amazing as there were so many. They even allowed us to use the pool after check out and gave us a room so we could take a shower before taking us to the airport. Don't hesitate and stay at Sam so.

          Good choice! You will not be disappointed.”

          We had booked one of the three rooms on the ground floor with view of the Swimming pool. We stayed here almost a week and enjoyed it every day! The rooms are nice with a good bed, safe, fridge and bathroom. Room cleaning is every day as well as fresh towels and linen every day. Staff is very (very!) friendly and helpful. We met with the owners, Sam So and his wife. A hard working family that takes great, great care of their staff. The Sam So guest house, not too far from the hotel is from the same owners. The location of the hotel is only a few minutes walk from almost anything you need: Super market, restaurants, massage, banks etc etc. The location of the hotel is off the main roads in a very very quiet area. It guarantees a good night of sleep. The breakfast is good: Fresh fruit, bread, coffee, tea, muesli, juice, eggs (any style!) The pool is very well maintained. Water is clean and bathing towels are available. They have a few bikes for guests. Thanks Sam!
