          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.

          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!

          In total there are 9 rooms over 3 levels. All but the ground floor rooms have balconies, however, the ground floor rooms have a little private patio at the back of the room with 2 chairs and a table and plenty of vegetation, nicely lit at night. comfortable mattresses and pillows, good quality bed linen and towels, free toiletries, mini fridge, flat screen tv, kettle/tea, coffee and 2 bottles of water. Daily housekeeping keeping the room clean and supplies up. great sized Pool kept sparkling clean Comfortable sunbeds and umbrellas.. Pooltowels. Free use of bicycles ( lights working!!) Breakfast ok but would be greater with a couple more choices. Reliable airport/bus station pick up. Town 5 min on bike if all that, but plenty of Cafés, bakeries and restaurants in this area as well but you will have to explore. Highly recommended if you like a good room, great pool , good atmosphere and most importantly friendly helpful staff/owners . Thanks for a great stay Sam So Crew 🙏🏼

          The room was beautiful and cleaned everyday. The pool is great (and often empty) and even though we stayed for 6 days we wanted to stay longer to enjoy it even more! The hotel is a 10-15 min walk from the pubstr. It's easy to get there and the road is okay though a bit dark. The dogs in the neighborhood sometimes bark but don't do anything. I usually eat cereal/muesli with yoghurt instead of milk. When I asked for yoghurt they made sure they had it for me the next day! So sweet! The hotel is still "learning" and improving so it might even get better and they might for example add the yoghurt to the buffet :) Very nice and warm people!

          The staff at this hotel is very kind. Our English was so unskillful that communicating was a little difficult, but they were always kind to us. It's a little uncomfortable because it's located in a remote location. But it was nice to see a small school or ordinary house nearby. Also, it is ok because you can use Tuk Tuk . Thank you for Tuk Tuk driver MR. Lee Gang(?)'s kindness.

          Peaceful, away from the old town ”
          8 rooms beautiful hotel with lovely owners Mr. and Ms. Sam So. The Villa is away from the old town located in local area (the alleyway is a dirty road, love the village feel), about 15 mins walk to the old market but it is a peaceful place away from the noise and the tourists. The reception can arrange Tuk Tuk to Angkro Wat or other places. The full service room is clean and large with beautiful design. The bed is large and very comfortable. The swimming pool is not big in mid size. Breakfast is simple, the staffs are friendly, helpful but with limited tourist services and knowledge (you can get tour info at the tourist agent in the old market). I booked 2 days then extended to 7 days. My friend and I had a very relaxed holiday, we loved our experience. I will stay here again.
