Cheap price and accomodating staffs”
Since the price is cheap, don't expect much for the room design. The room looks old and we've encountered problems with the toilet. The staffs are very friendly and accommodating.

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.

Very old hotel not clean but well located.”
The entire facility is run down and lack of maintenance. Rooms are not clean, we asked to move from one that was really horrible at the ground floor. They don't have a washing machine which means all the blanket is washed by hand. The location is great on the street to Angkor Wat.

Not the best”
We booked this based on positive reviews but our room left a lot to be desired - didn't smell great, window screen wouldn't close, light burnt out and blew the breaker right at bedtime, not a very comfortable bed... plenty of other great and cheap accommodations in the city, better off to keep looking.

A friendly guesthouse in Siem Reap”
A simple, but friendly guesthouse. Owners and stuff get out of their way to meet your every request, even those they are by no means expected to. If we ever get back to Siem Reap, there'd be no reason to look elsewhere for accommodation.

a few issues here”
great tuktuk guy
first the driver who met me was simply excellent, very friendly and with a name sign - thank you. Also, the correspondence to confirm my arrival details were replied to with promptly Arriving Friday night (7pm) two rather surly guys on reception watching their YouTube vids. Not very welcoming, and couldn't even offer to give me a hand with my bag. The room was big, a little gloomy. the mattress needs to be changed urgently. Worst of all, I woke up and my ENTIRE bed was covered in little ants - I was covered, too! Ants. Everywhere. When I complained, the cleaner simply brushed them off (!!) and the receptionist told me that everything was fine! when I pointed out that no, it was fine, they reluctantly changed my room. Same size, better shower, same uncomfortable mattress. Fortunately no ants... Remote for AC didn't work, so I had to ask for some help. Gave me a different remote, but why couldn't they have given me a remote that worked in the first place? I was given breakfast that was STONE COLD - This plate of food and toast had been without doubt sitting around for a long time! I told them the food was cold and returned upstairs, 30 minutes later they brought up a new breakfast. I'm glad of that, but I don't understand what they were thinking serving me an old plate of food in the first place When the owners are not around, seems to me like there are too many issues that staff cannot cope with and are chasing to fix problems and complaints that they are not really capable of understanding completely. I was wowed by the positive reviews of this place, but very disappointed and moved to a much nice (and cheaper!) new place in the next street for a week of clean comfort, friendly family hospitality and peace. The reviews and high ratings are suspect, I feel, and I can't recommend a stay here - I was relieved to leave...

Amazing experience”
great location, amazing personnel, fairly clean
Absolutelly wonderful experience. There was a trouble with our booking (we changed the fan cooling to A/C cooling but the staff cancelled our booking for good) but Mr. Sam (hotel owner himself) swiftly managed the situation and found another room. Very friendly indeed, have to recommend to everyone. Only the bathroom could be in better condition. However the accomodation was pretty cheap so I cannot complain about anything. For Cambodia one of best price/performace ratios.

Review of Sam So Guesthouse”
Location & Room
Not the most honest establishment. I booked a double bed with fan at Sam So. However, I reflected on Agoda that I was alone (1 person). When I arrived with my girlfriend, they made us pay an extra-traveler fee, which is completely bull. This left an extremely sour taste in my palate for the whole trip. Such a case has never happened before to me in my life and there is no reason why I have to pay an extra person fee. I paid for a room that was supposed to accommodate two people. Very disappointing.

Good Location, Helpfull Staff, Room Is worth it for money
The location is good. Transportation from airport to hotel is free. tuk tuk driver ready at the airport upon arrival. easy to find him coz he hold a paper with ur name written. The staff was very helpful - can check in early and can exchange money too in this hotel. The room was so big - clean toilet and functional air conditional. Bicycle can be rent here for just USD1 for a whole day! Can go to night market and city centre by bike. In fact, for those who are going to Bangkok from here, can buy bus ticket from the hotel. Not just that, tuk tuk driver provided by the hotel to send you at the bus station. Im really satisfied with this hotel. Highly recommended.
