Best tight budget bet
Street 8, half a block from the riverside, Koh Kong T: (035) 393 927
Heading inland from the river road, Otto's sits on a well shaded area with a bunch of functional though basic wooden rooms in a rambling set-up.
It’s a little like stepping onto an old ship’s deck, and just as creaky. The two large and well-decked-out balcony areas are a big asset here and a great escape from the heat -- not bad for taking a snooze either. The rooms themselves are nothing to write home about, they're dumpy with sagging mattresses, but they are clean, have mosquito nets in reasonably good shape and are among the cheapest in town. Otto was one of the first foreigners to set up a guesthouse in Koh Kong and is a solid source of local information (and also of conspiracy theories if that floats your boat). The kitchen serves a range of Khmer and German food.
