A fave with NGO crowd
Past the airstrip, Sen Monorom. Distant from main strip. T: (012) 944 647, (012) 823 054
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 to town. The curly-haired European woman who runs the place can be incredibly rude and unfriendly. When we came to inquire about rooms, she berated a few of her employees about drinking alcohol on the job in front of us, then pretended we weren't standing at the reception desk and left. The drunk employees proceeded to assist us. The restaurant here has a nice atmosphere -- airy and surrounded by trees -- and dishes up some good food. The steamed fish looked particularly good, but the food takes forever to be made -- and we mean forever.
