Kompong Chhnang

Kompong Chhnang offers a more than adequate selection of clean, well-priced accommodation. Many of the town’s hotels are very much generic style joints popular with travelling sales reps -- particularly the profusion along National Route 5 -- but a limited few are aimed towards a foreign clientele.

In the patchwork of residential streets on the west side of town you’ll find a couple of excellent guesthouses offering decent rooms at very reasonable prices, while a few good choices are found along Route 5 as it leaves town towards Phnom Penh, including the town’s top establishment, Neang Puon’s Home, which has the only pool we could find in town.

Garden Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under US$10
C419 Phsar Dam Rong St, Kompong Chhnang
T: (012) 550 633

Garden Guesthouse is a classically Southeast Asian-style hotel, a very welcome find in the unlikely location of a Kompong Chhnang back street. We're not sure if the very friendly and welcoming local family running the guesthouse hit on the formula by accident or if they made a study of popular provincial Thai guesthouses of the 1990s, but from the agreeable garden setting through to its simple...

Chanthea Borint Hotel
Backpacker - Under US$10
Southwest of the central square, Kompong Chhnang
T: (012) 762 988

Chanthea Borint Hotel offers comfortable-enough rooms in various buildings scattered around a courtyard, so although it is popular with local travellers -- it's an excellent deal -- you’ll be unlikely to have availability issues. Despite the name, Chanthea Borint Hotel is firmly guesthouse style and indeed is better known by its old name, Sokha Guesthouse. Apparently a certain large hotel...

Neang Puon’s Home
Backpacker - Under US$10
National Route 5, 3 kms southeast of city centre, Kompong Chhnang
T: (012) 808 789

Excellent rooms, an appealing garden setting, plenty of local info and advice plus the only pool in town make Neang Puon a very tempting option in Kompong Chhnang. The slightly out of town location loses them a point or two but if you do have transport, or perhaps are only staying in town for the a night, this is a top choice. The guesthouse is around 3 kilometres south of town on National... Read our full review of Neang Puon’s Home.

Phkay Proeunk Guest House
Backpacker - Under US$10
National Road Number 5, approximately 3 kms southeast of city centre, Kompong Chhnang
T: (012) 932 919

Very new when we visited in late 2016, pale grey, three-storey Phkay Proeunk Guest House is built over the site of an older guesthouse. Now a good looking building, it offers spacious communal balconies on each floor and a wide parking area sets it back from the busy road. Being newly opened, it does have a stark and rather bare feel for now, but the manager was very enthusiastic and helpful... Read our full review of Phkay Proeunk Guest House.

Sovannphum Hotel
Flashpacker - US$10 to 35
National Road Number 5 (toward Phnom Penh, just south of hospital and Independence Monument), Kompong Chhnang
T: (012) 812 459

Sovann Phum is the pick of the town’s generic Sino-Khmer-type hotels and, while nothing to write home about, does provide clean, comfortable rooms at reasonable rates. Similar places are dotted along Route 5 but the advantage of this small hotel is a handy location right at the start of the highway as it leaves town, just past the main hospital. Phsar Leu and the taxi/bus station are only a... Read our full review of Sovannphum Hotel.

Somrongsen Hotel
Flashpacker - US$10 to 35
Phsar Krom St, Kompong Chhnang
T: (097) 717 6699

The principal advantage of this otherwise characterless hotel is its location on Phsar Krom Street, from where you can conceivably visit most of Kompong Chhnang's sights on foot. There’s little wrong with the actual rooms, and the manager we met was helpful, but the collection of concrete blocks in a wide and bare compound creates a distinct municipal building feel. It is set back down a... Read our full review of Somrongsen Hotel.
