Guesthouse Number 6
What we say:
This newest addition to Chau Doc's accommodation offerings has been painted an incredibly bright blue throughout: floors, walls and ceilings have all been daubed. Watch your head as you climb the narrow and tight staircase that winds up through Number 6's many floors. The rooms are standard fare, with fan and air-con rooms the same with an additional charge if you decide to flick the switch on the air-con. The cheap $4 rooms are very small, with low ceilings on the ground floor. Number 6 is popular with the motorcycle drivers. Find it yourself if you want to save yourself a dollar or two.

Initially pretty welcoming with its neon-blue exterior and the family relaxing on the ground floor, but quickly became less warm and cozy when we were shown to a private twin room that featured some kind of animal droppings on the bedspread. In case this seems ridiculously squeamish, let it be known that we also found some stray pieces of hair and burn marks on the sheets--which would've been totally fine. But spoor? Not so good. The worst part came when we tried to get our passports back and move to another guesthouse; the proprietress tried to get $2 out of us--for the A/C, which had been on for perhaps four minutes--and made quite the face-losing show of it among the kith and kin gathered on the ground floor. Eventually (after much grinning and ''thank you so much''s) we were able to extract ourselves, but a cyclo driver tailed us for several minutes asking where we were going! It was a disturbing and unpleasant way to begin our stay in this otherwise pretty charming town.
I will give the guesthouse a few points for being pretty interesting a place--if the poo-on-bed incident had not occurred, I could see this having a cutesy, hip vibe. A few points, too, for its excellent location, but this was overall a great big disappointment. Proceed with caution!

Small but clean
Very clean but small rooms. Pay a little more & get a twin room (2 double beds) it's a dollar more but almost twice the size. All rooms have access to a outside area to sit and watch the rain!!!

I picked this place out from the options listed here and on Lonelyplanet of course, like everyone else. Room was clean and decent. I had a nice little view of the street below. So on the 4th floor I could open my double doors and enjoy a beer while watching the people below and when clear I could see Sam mountain off in the horizon.
Of course you will be hounded by some tour guides once in town.
I will instantly tell you exactly where to go for the best tour of the area by a very friendly and kind local. I was privileged to spend soe time with him and his family and he gave me a tour of the area including Sam mountain for a few hours for less than whatsome of these tour guides ask for.
Mr. Long runs the only English bookstore in Chau Doc. Walk out of the guesthouse and walk to where the central square is and on your left hand side next to the pharmacy on the corner you'll find his shop.
It's the Hoa Sen bookstore. Ask him for where to find greatlocal cuisine as well and he'll point you in the right direction

Good stop over accomodation
Arrived in Chau Doc erley in the afternoon travelling from Phnom Pehn by boat. Which is a trip I do recommend everybody to do, when in the neighbourhood.
We had a room on the top floor, which gives you a nice view from the balcony, overlooking town and over to Sam mountain. Rooms are ok, fan and color TV on which we could almost receive two Vietnamese channels. Cold water showers, something I couldn't get used to in Asia. But clean and proper. Visit the market right around the corner where you are the attraction. Nice place, nice guesthouse.
