As the centre of Sen Monorom is pretty small, many of the Khmer oriented guesthouses have positioned themselves outside the centre of town, particularly on the road south to Snoul -- be warned it is a long and hilly walk to these places. If you arrive with bags and at night, you're better off grabbing a moto taxi. Recently, some popular backpacker places have opened on the main drag or just past the far end of the airstrip. If you are looking for one of the options off the main downtown area, after leaving the Sorya bus station, make a left at the roundabout with the bull monument. When you hit the major crossroad there are some accommodation options whether you continue straight or make a right.
The plush Mayura Hill Resort is a luxurious alternative to Sen Monorom’s more backpacker-oriented guesthouses. Located a 10-minute drive from what passes for downtown and set on a hillside overlooking Sen Monorom Mayura (meaning peacock in Khmer), Mayura makes for a special place to stay for those willing to spend a little more. Despite rumours Mondulkiri certainly isn’t all rubber... Read our full review of Mayura Hill Resort.
The first guesthouse in Sen Monorom, Pich Kiri is still going strong, offering a hefty 50 rooms set at various price points, and a front desk that is more than able to arrange both travel outside the Mondulkiri area and experiences within town. Catering to big tours and the backpacker crowd alike, owner Madame Deu's English skills and good feel for what appeals to foreign tourists has paid off. A...

Popular with backpackers young and old as well as NGO volunteers, Sovannkiri Guesthouse is conveniently located in the centre of downtown Sen Monorom. You might come for the low rates and great location, but you’ll stay for the great service, laidback atmosphere and lip-smackingly delicious food. Easy to spot from the main road. While a number of budget-priced Western-orientated guesthouses... Read our full review of Sovannkiri Guesthouse.
The Nature Lodge is Sen Monorom's most popular hotel, run by an Israeli-Khmer couple with a good grasp on what makes the backpacker set tick. Bungalows at a number of price points and sizes are set in a fenced-in field with horses, cattle, and dogs running free on the premises. It's all rather like going to Camp Cambodia. This is one of two or three places in Mondulkiri with something... Read our full review of Nature Lodge.
Oromis Resort, set into a lush, mountainous garden complete with a plethora of orchids, thatch bungalows and a running river alongside, is a great choice for a romantic getaway or just to enjoy a little peace and quiet on your own. Prices start a touch above the average backpacker budget, but it’s worth every riel. Relax and read a book. As you’re heading towards the downtown area of Sen...

With 15 clean and comfortable bungalow-style rooms, this two-year-old guesthouse set somewhat outside Sen Monorom's main drag should prove popular with backpackers and others looking for low-priced and exceptionally quiet comfort. The medium-sized rooms, arranged around a pleasant garden area, are reasonably clean, comfortable, and have televisions and operational fans, as well as warm blankets...

This pleasant enough guesthouse feels like it is far more targeted towards the NGO crowd than independent travellers and backpackers. While the 22 rooms, hidden in a few low-slung row houses set behind a small stream and some tree-lined paths, are very clean and spacious, with hot water showers and TV, there is little to justify the walk (or short moto ride) out here as opposed to staying closer...
