          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

          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.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          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!
