    I hope this is the appropriate forum for this recommendation, but I very much want to put in a plug for Mom's Guesthouse in Siem Reap. (momsguesthouse.com) I had been staying at 2 Dragons, and for an additional $1 was able to upgrade *exponentially* in quality. Seriously. No comparison.

    I'm not sure why it is this hotel has not been able to get reviewed in Travelfish, but I wish I had found it and come here first.

    Travelfish, can you pleeeeeeeeeeeease put Mom's Guesthouse on your radar?

    One satisfied customer,

    We used to list Mom's Guesthouse but removed it some time ago due to a number of complaints we received about it. We've no plans to relist it.

    Complaints enough to wipe Mom's off the list? Yikes. That is unsettling. I'm sorry to hear that and hoping I don't have 1st-hand experience of some unpleasantry. They have been so cordial and helpful, and the rooms are new and spotless. I'm always most afraid of theft, and sure hope there have been no issues with this.

    Anyway, the website is momguesthouse.com (no s after mom).

    Thanks for the reply from admin., and enjoy Siem Reap to traveler!

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    We stayed at the Small Hotel in downtown Sihanoukevile.

    We were originally going to stay for 3-4 days, but ended up staying for 8 days. We visited in September'07 and for 10US$ we were spoilt with a western run hotel, with A/C, hot water, cable TV, fridge. The room was cleaned daily, with a communal safe. The Swedish Owner and his Khmer wife were really friendly, and the well trained ( and looked after staff) were great. We did some trips via their office, but really weren't all that. Once we got to know the staff- friendly, laughing and helpfull) we really had a great time, saw so much more and were recommened to go and see places- and taken there by the staff too, on our rented moto's.
    We had a couple of minor problems, which were addressed straight away.

    We would recommend it to anybody- though you may need to book in advance, as it seems to become a hot spot for Swedish travellers.

    Hope you find this useful.

    Abbo & Felicia.

    We spent a week staying in "Rikitikitavi" in Kampot souhern Cambodia and cannot recomend it enough. We looked at everything in town and this charming boutique hotel with its wonderfull staff and superb-tho expensive-food, quite stole our hearts. 'Jasmine' further down the river also does good food and 'Bodhi Villa' accross the bridge is exceptionally tranquill.

    Spring Guest House in Phnom Penh

    Staying at Spring Guest House right now. It may be a little more expensive than the average - paying 6$ per night for a super clean room with cold or sometimes luke warm water. However, I've seen a bunch of rooms around town in the 4$ a night range and really they don't compare to Spring GH. It's bright, clean, daily room service, friendly staff. Anyway, really enjoying my stay here thus far.

    Spring Guest House - maroon building
    address as on biz card:
    34, St. 111, Boeng Pralit, 7 Makara, Phnom Penh
    Mobile 015 888 777
    phone: 023 222 155

    have seen other travellers here as well, though perhaps more are staying at cheaper GH's.

    Also, as you walk out of GH to the right, at the corner with the main street there is a fabulous, inexpensive restaurant that is really busy at night so you have to wait around for a table. Worth the wait.

Does anyone have any recent feedback. We are a very active 60+ couple and we dont travel 5* our budget is 20 - 40 US$ a night. An y recommendations of where to stay would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Hi there,

    I really really do NOT recommended Two Dragons. I checked in there and found it to be pretty yukcy. Just down the street is Mom's Guesthouse -- see my post above. I strongly suspect the admin comment from Travelfish is in regards to Mommy's Guesthouse, which is different. Mom's is unbelievably clean, new, friendly, w/ free breakfast, free internet. They set me up with a fantastic tour guide and driver as well.

    In Siem Reap:

    Just two weeks ago my friend and I stayed at Bun Seda Angkor Villa.

    Close to pub street but nice and quiet. Only two minutes walk away. 11$ to 15$ a night. Very clean, hot shower, etc.
    I think their website is www.bunsedaangkor.com
    We also worked with one of the tuk tuk drivers around ther, Tony, you can email him at tonycliff2008@yahoo.com to get in contact. he will pick you up wherever you need, etc. spoke english, knowledgeable, and did a fine job of taking us to places without too many tourists and some with none around the area, outside of town.
    good luck!

    It is a place where i can have an opportunity to express my satisfaction on Frangipani Villa where i stayed at Room No. 15. Room 15 is large and reasonable price comparing to size and architect designs. It is a quiet and beautiful place. The price ranging from $25 to $45. Could you please put Frangipani Vill in your radar?

    i would like to mention a GH in Phnom Penh:
    name: les jardins d'orient
    adress: 75 street
    tel: 012 413 825
    web: http://www.phnom-penh.biz research the name of the GH.
    price: from 16USD, breakfast included(your choice on the menu!!)
    the guesthouse is better known as a restaurant -mediterrean cuisine- to the french residents in PP.(it's a place where french speaking people tend to gather)
    it's main asset is the nice garden with many plants ant trees where part of the restaurant is located.it's out of the main drag, quiet and with a happy atmosphere. the french owners are present, the friendly staff is french and english speaking.
    we stayed 13-17.01.2008

    whoops! it looks like a spammer definitely got through during the switch over time. too bad these links aren't live, because i could definitely benefit from learning more about all these watches and medicines! ;-)

    for what it is worth, we had a wonderful stay at Two Dragons. the staff was great, the rooms were comfortable and spotless, and the food in the restaurant, particularly the cambodian food, was awesome. Two Dragons is definitely more of a flashpacker venue, but gives excellent value for your flashpacker money.

    perhaps best about Two Dragons was how they arranged to have a stringer meet us at the border crossing in Poipet to painlessly facilitate that event. plus, they lined up solid and friendly rickshaw drivers for us during our visit to Angkor and for our return taxi to Thailand. there are many good places to stay in Siem Reap and Two Dragons is definitely one of them. cheers.

    I recommend avoiding Rory's Guesthouse, in Phnom Penh, opposite the national museum. We found the room stank of cigarettes; the mattress was as thick and comfortable as cardboard; the A/C had two settings: Off or Full Blast; The corridors smelt of urine; the noise at 1am was terrible and breakfast (specifically what they're passing off as 'mushrooms') was gross.
    Only thing I will say is the room + en suite was clean, despite the odour in the room.
