The Villa Sok San Square
The whole package
What we say:
Formerly the Encore Angkor, Villa Sok San Square is only a minute’s walk away from the heart of town, yet offers a full-service at very reasonable rates. The rooms are simple and functional, but spotlessly clean with attractive decorative flourishes to soften the feel. They come with all of the features that you would expect including fridge, safety box, air-con, TV and WiFi, and each one also has a bathtub to help ease aching bones after a long, hot day of temple bashing. Complimentary tea and coffee are also provided.
There is a mid-sized pool at the back, which doesn’t get a great deal of shade during the day, and out front a friendly, open-air restaurant serves a selection of Khmer and Western dishes all day. You’re also directly opposite the popular Genevieve’s restaurant, and only a few doors up from Haven, a vocational training restaurant that also serves delicious food in a lovely garden setting.
Despite the hotel’s proximity to the action, both in town and on the increasingly busy Sok San Road, it is quiet. Double-glazing has been installed to help make sure it stays that way. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we visited. The rates below do not include breakfast, and booking in advance can in some cases secure substantial discounts. One way pick-up is included.

We arrived here after 29 hours of travel and the staff were wonderfully welcoming, offering us a cold drink, taking our packs upstairs and pointing out the pool so we could cool off and relax.
We spent 3 nights here and were very happy with the staff (the most helpful we've been across), the location (very close to everything but far enough off the main road to be a bit quieter), the breakfasts (enormous) and of course the pool.
The only small drawback was the lack of heavy curtains in the rooms, meaning we were woken up early in the morning by the sunrise. Either bring an eyemask, or ask for a room on the western side of the building if that bothers you. Otherwise, a great choice.

for a few dollars more
Jan 2010 actually . This definitely in flashpacker territory but a fine choice still. Pool was the big attraction but throw in a big brekky included and free wifi and value is there at &30. Rooms clean and comfy(as you expect at this price) including bath and excellent hot water.Pillow and mattress excellent.Staff friendly, helpful with good language skills.
