Seng Sokhom Guest House

Our rating:

This is almost as down to earth as it gets, but in a charming, not-especially grungy kind of way at a laid-back family-run affair spread across three floors.

The top floor is the most Cambodian you’re likely to find these days where, inside wooden walls, the sombre fan-cooled rooms are spacious and clean. But they are basic. That’s why they’re cheap. Don’t come here if you’re looking for glossy paint, colourful murals and poppy signs advertising cut-price vodka buckets. Do not come here at all. This is more of a get-away, and the shaded veranda is the kind of place where you could cheerfully while away hours in a book, in splendid isolation. Indeed, someone was doing exactly that the last time we checked this place (and may have been the same guy as was there the time before that). Room 101 out on the veranda is the best of the lot, if you can snag it before someone else does. Seng Sokhom is a bit out of the way, situated firmly in residential Phnom Penh, but with the quiet streets and appealing street vendor cuisine that comes with that.
