Pich Kiri Guest House
Large complex with most luxurious rooms in the are
What we say:
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 Khmer design aesthetic means big rooms filled with ostentatiously huge wooden furniture, enormous mirrors and rather baroque paintings, as well as massive and comfortable beds. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained, and hot water is available. Cheaper wooden rooms set around an attractive central courtyard are on offer for the backpacker set. TVs come in every room, and Internet is available at the front desk if you are aching to keep up on your email. Unlike many Sen Monorom hotels, there is a small restaurant offering AM breakfast specialties, including Western food. Travelers loathe to rough it would do well to put Pich Kiri at the top of their Sen Monorom accommodation list.

Pich Kiri Guesthouse
My wife and I stayed here @ Pich Kiri Guesthouse in Sen Monorom, Cambodia for over a week. We absolutely loved the place, we met so many fun travelers, the rooms were clean and only 5 dollars. The owners were friendly especially Dara (the daughter in law) she worked so hard at making us comfortable, she was just a joy to be around, if you go to Sen monorom, my wife and I highly reccomend Pich Kiri Guesthouse. tell Dara, Carly and Jason says Hey, and ask Dara's husband to break out the rice wine...!

Rooms fine, owner unpleasant, tours unreliable
Everything started off great: the room was fine but I was told the TV didn't work -I didn't care- but they offered to discount $1 and move me to another room with a working TV the next day, which they did. Hardly anyone who was regularly around spoke much, if any, English though. The restuarant food was good value and very tasty and it was here that I started overhearing others complaining: a group set out in the morning for an elephant tour and I heard one say ''The guide knows we are on the overnight tour, doesn't he?'' Oh, yes!'' came the reply. I was somewhat surprised to see them return, incensed, late that afternoon! They had come up from PP for the tour, paid for an overnight tour arranged by Pich Kiri and got a one day tour instead! I was chatting to the resturant man later and he said that he leases the resturant from Pich Kiri and problems like that happen all the time, and, as he is the only one who speaks English, he has to deal with it all as the familiy doesn't care. My own nasty incident came on checking out: I was charged for a hot water room when I'd asked for and stayed in a cold one. I was told brusquely that I'd stayed in a hot water room so $21. I refused to pay and was told over that I'd stayed in a hot water room. Fianlly, I said ''Let's go to the room and check the water shall we?'' to which the price changed to $15. At this point, I jokingly mentioned the one dollar TV discount and was screamed at and told that that had never been said to me! The owner stomped off and the resturant guy apologised! Regarding elephant tours in Sen Monorom, I didn't take one, but several tourists were disappointed by day tour things like the guide leaving you to watch the elephants munching grass while he has a sleep for an hour!
