Guesthouse accomodation Siem Reap for a family of 4.

Posted by coopsnpeps on 27/3/2010 at 10:32

HI there,

I am hoping to get some ideas for accom for our trip to Siem Reap in November.

WE are a family of 4.( kids aged 5 and 2.5)

I am hoping for something around $50-60 a night.

I am looking for a smallish guesthouse all on one level as such or even just one or two steps.
(Or just some rooms at ground level and restaurant on ground level)
Bungalow type rooms and a pool.

WE are happy in one room with a King Bed.

Any ideas much appreciated.

In December 2009 we stayed at Mekong Angkor Palace, we have two children aged 8 and 5. The room had three double beds and we arranged for an extra trundle bed.

The room was usd40 including usd5 for the additional trundle bed. The hotel is set back from the main road, had good proximity to the town centre, ie about usd1 in a tuk tuk, and had a pool and air con.

The hotel was clean, safe and cheap. It is not a guesthouse but for our family it was good.

Thanks Patrick,

I will take a look and thanks for your time in replying.
I am hoping for something that is in town so it's a matter of walking not too far and something that is as floor level as possible as my son uses a wheelchair. I am well aware that things will not be "accessible" as such but as easy as possible to move from room to food and street would be good! :)

We stayed at the Encore Angkor in July. We have two kids who were 7 and 5 at the time. We booked two rooms next toeach other for about $30 each. The place was very secure and nicely appointed - very comfortable and the pool was refreshing!

The location was right in the heart of Siem Reap - next to the night market and a block away from Pub Street. But it was just far enough off a side road that noise was not an issue.

Later, we stayed at the Central Boutique Angkor. We liked this one even better because the rooms were adjoining. It was about $5 more per room than the Encore but it was worth it for the peace of mind of having your family in connecting rooms. Again, it had great location nearby everything and a nice pool. Great breakfasts were included at both guesthouses.

One other place we stayed was the Angkor Spirit. It had nice big rooms and was much cheaper, but it was far from the center of Siem Reap. You had to tuk-tuk in if you wanted to get there. It was very quiet because it was outside of town, but it felt like we were away from the action and the lively feel of being where the people were.
