What we say: 3 stars

Babel opened in 2008 and has gone on to develop a good reputation. Set at the end of a quiet dirt road in the Wat Bo area near several other budget to midrange guesthouses, its 24 rooms are spotless and large, if a bit plain. Each has new furniture, hot water and cable TV. Everything is bright white, including the tiles of the sparkling bathrooms, most of which come with full-size bathtubs. The building itself is nothing special, a typical new Khmer structure with an unsightly, mirrored facade, but it's softened by the lush, private garden, with an outdoor bar/restaurant and some cool little hang-outs the owners have put into the garden, as well as hammocks. The restaurant serves a couple of the usual local dishes, but the emphasis is on some very reasonably priced Italian food and Spanish tapas. The bruschetta is delicious, and made with European basil, not Thai Basil as some places do, though the mains might leave those with big appetites still feeling a little peckish. The bar is very well stocked, all the better to work the ambitious cocktail list which is 100 items long: something to do when the rains set in. The manager is a friendly, funny guy. Free WiFi available and guests can use a swimming pool nearby for a small fee.
