Great value, friendly staff
Heng Heng II Hotel is a straightforward Khmer-style guesthouse, with no frills, but the rooms here are great value, clean and have hot water showers.
Similarly priced to most of the other guesthouses in town, at Heng Heng II they go the extra mile with better linen on the beds and an overall generally better standard. Staff are funny and helpful, rooms have a desk and a river view and it doesn’t feel nearly as cavernous as the original. For the money, this is our pick of the flock in Kratie, but if you want a more backpacker, convivial vibe, a lower cost and don’t need the trimmings, head to Le Tonle or Grass.
