Slightly pricier than its rivals, this was also the smartest and brightest, with lovely pale blue walls and big windows coming together to create a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are smaller than Raksmey Sokon, but equally spotless, nicely decorated and come with all of the standard features, including a mini-fridge, TV and WiFi. Their restaurant is one of the pricier in town, but... Read our full review of Oeng Kong Huy Guesthouse & Restaurant.
