    Hi All,

    We're going to Cambodia in February - just wondered if anyone could recommend any good (cheapish!) guest houses with air con and en-suite in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap?

    Do we need to book in advance or can we just turn up?

    Cheers from a cold but sunny London!

    hi Lucy,

    The Okay Guesthouse in Phnom Penh is excellent. It has clean rooms and bathroom and you can ask for an AC room. I think I paid $8 or so. Service is pretty good there too, and its easy to get transportation. Its within walking distance to the Royal Palace.

    I cant give any helpful info for Siem Reap because my room didnt have AC and I dont know if it was supplied in any of the room at all.

    Thanks Manticore, sounds good - and a bargain price too!
    Cheers ;-)

    hi lucy!
    we came yesterday by boat from Siem Reap. We'll really recommend the Golden Tempel Hotel. really professional guys, even when we had a problem with the tuktuk-driver they DID business with. clean rooms with nice atmosphere, free coffee, bananas and internet! $9,- with fan, cools down in the night so you don't need a aircon.
    it's now high season, hotel was booked full so reservate early!

    Travelfish profile here we're now staying in the royal hiness hotel in Pnom Penh (road 172). $10 a night incl. tv, aircon, bath and warm water. great room but breakfast and dinner are really bad and expensive.

    enjoy your time! Good Luck!

    Depending on your budget I highly recommend the Billabong in Phnom Penh and The Villa Siem Reap in SR. Both gorgeous and an absolute bargain for their price. The Billabong has a pool which is fantastic to relax in after a day visiting the sad sites of the Killing Fields and S21.
