      The man behind the reception wanted to rip me off! No mannersI stayed one night at Vibola guesthouse. I wanted to extend my stay for another night so talked to the women who was there that I will stay one night more. I also gave the laundry to wash. She said OK. The same day around the noon the other guy from reception is knocking on my door and says(or rather yelle) that I didn't let them know if I check out today or I stay. I said that I've fixed everything this morning and I'm staying. He responded that he doesn't know about it and I need to check out because the room is already booked. He left without the word. When I came to the reception to talk calmly what happened, he said that I can stay but he raised up price from 13$ to 18$. When I asked him why did he raise up price for me from one day to another he reply with arrogance "or you pay more or you check out", so I checked out but left my laundry there. I came back one day later to collect my clothes but they were still dirty... He didn't give them to the laundry on purpose. This man is pretty revangeous. I never wrote bad review before but this kind of behaviour deserves to be publicly accessible. This guy wanted to rip me off so watch out!

      Rude and patronising staff. Particularly the managerWe were given a room on the ground floor where the toilet was broken. Staff tried to fix it but couldn't. The manager then accused us of breaking it despite not actually using it. Eventually we were allowed to move rooms only to be told as we're going on a trip the next morning that we needed to move rooms at that very moment and if we didn't delay our tour they would go into the room and move all our possessions whether we liked it or not. We asked to move when we returned from the trip at which point the manager became even more ride and started shouting at us. The manager continued to behave in a childish and unwelcoming manner for the rest of our stay. My top for you is to find another hotel or if you do make the mistake of staying here make sure you don't pay in advance so you can leave without too much contact with the rude staff and manager.

      Vibola was everything we needed. Great location, good WiFi in rooms, clean bathroom and a helpful staff. We rented a scooter in the reception, and everything worked out perfectly. A little but - there is no sun in the pool area so don’t expect it to be a place for sunbathing.

      Good hotel close to the River ”

      Violation Guesthouse is a very good hotel in a really good position. it's about 100mtr from the river. About 4 shops down there is the cheapest eats around-omlrtte & coffee breakfast $us1.50 is really good value & the reattach of the menu is equally good value. there are lots of other eateries nearby for variety. The hotels staff are very friendly and helpful, the hotel offers motorbike hire. I nevee triwd thw pool but all rooms have a balcony that open up. to the poolview.....and the neighbous about 3 mtrs away haha. The Guesthouse is a short walk to the Durian Roundabout where there's the night market and many shops,bars and cafés. But along years way there are heaps of places to grab a meal or along the river front there and many bars. Really liked the hotel and will stay again on my next visit to Kampot you can't go past Vibola Guesthouse for all round good value.

      Do not book at this hotel. They list rooms that they do not have. And they will not give you your money back. This is a fraudulent company that needs to be removed from Agoda.

      Modern and Good Layout”

      The hotel is fairly central, about 5 minuteswalk from the park and market where most of the activity takes place. It’s new and everything works and is all up together. The complex is centered around a small swimming pool in the courtyard so if you’re on the ground floor the pool is right outside your door. Staff were friendly and easy going. Basic toiletries are supplied but no shower gel. I’d definitely stay there again, for £13 a night it wasn’t a bad deal.

      The place is clean, room looks new or recently renovated. A/c is strong and tv has international channels. Pool is obviously quite small yet clean and perfectly adequate. It’s worth nothing there’s no option for breakfast inside the hotel, but plenty options around the neigbourhood. Staff was friendly, I didn’t need much of their help this time though.

      Vibola is on a very quiet street only one block from the river front. Very close to many restaurants, shopping, and convenience stores. The staff are very friendly and do their best to help even with the language barrier. The rooms are a nice size with very comfortable beds and great A/C. Just wish they had in room safe and kettle. The pool is in he center of the hotel and, although not that big, was very clean and a great place to relax. Definitely a great budget hotel!

      Great room, staff need improvement”

      This is a great little place to stay for flashpackers looking for a more modern-looking place. Visually, it's quite attractive both in the central pool area and the room itself. The latter is clean and well-furmished. The WiFi is poor from the 3rd floor, since there was a problem with the 3rd floor router and the staff spoke nearly no English to help you figure it out. Communicating with any staff other than the main manager was always a struggle. The bathroom floor was always wet due to a poor setup of the air conditioner drain pipe, which would constantly leak all over the floor, but other than that, the bathroom was clean and good. One of our nights, an extended Khmer family stayed at Vibola and decided than 10 to 11PM was a great time to hold a LOUD family card game on the 2nd floor lobby, waking everybody else up with their loud yells and laughs. The staff did nothing to ask them to keep it down and instead I had to ask them to do so.

      Noisy because of the pool”

      Location, pool, modern rooms

      This is a good place by comparison to others in Kampot but the communal area and pool are in the middle of the building with all room windows facing it, so you can clearly hear conversations from your room and if there's any kids playing in the pool at 7am you'll be driven insane. Staff are friendly but their English isn't great and the doors are locked at 10pm which can be a nuisance, as you have to wake someone up. Again, this isn't unusual for Cambodia, but it's a factor.
