More on Kratie

Set in two traditional wooden houses facing one another across the street, Le Tonle offers simple, good value accommodation and a good cause.

Travelfish says:

The nine rooms are comfortable, wooden rooms, with decent mattresses, mosquito nets, fans and a few pieces of furniture. The share bathrooms are scrupulously clean, and even provide free shampoo and shower gel for the hot water showers. Le Tonle is a training school for disadvantaged kids, who spend a year here learning the tricks of the trade before setting off on their own careers in the industry. Despite the fact that we visited at the early part of a training cycle, we found the staff to be on point, very keen and incredibly helpful. That said, you may find And always ready with a smile. It was a real pleasure to stay here. The rooms can get warm — though we were visiting at the hottest part of the year — we recommend opening the window to get some air circulating. Or some guests requested additional fans. They can organise tours for you here as the school was set up by the Cambodian Rural Development Team, who have an extensive tour itinerary and a lot of experience in the region. The bar/restaurant is a very pleasant space, tucked underneath the original building, where they serve up a good menu of Khmer and Western favourites. Highly recommended.
