The rooms are clean and surprisingly spacious. Location is beyond excellent - a corner away from the Royal Palace, National Museum and Wat Oulomn. The river bank is 1 min. walk too... Wifi available, working without a hitch. The staff was very friendly. We booked through them also the Killing Fields/S21 visit and the minivan to Siem Riep. Prices and...

Sovanphum was located close to the river and you could easily walk to Central market. We had a double room with balcony and windows and it was refreshingly large enough to have a sitting area as well. The owner was very nice and helpful however she was away for part of our stay, her staff weren't nearly as keen when...

Everything was at my wishes. Sophie herself is the owner of this guesthouse, and fulfil your wishes before you utter them. Also the personal is extremely serviable. Try out and see by yourself. Even the little cute dog is an animal that makes you laugh

The service included a friend for life. As an older person, I do not want to be alone in a big hotel. I want to come down the stairs in the morning to a family that knows how to make me feel wanted. I would live the rest of my life in this setting and feel quite grateful. It is...

This is a very friendly and clean budget priced guesthouse. This was my first visit to Cambodia and I greatly enjoyed my 8 day stay here. Sophia was extremely helpful and friendly and I was very well looked after, with lots of tips about local sightseeing and tours etc. The room and bathroom was basic, as one must expect for...

This hotel is what you would define as average. Everything is in working order and we had no problem with the facilities in any department. When we arrived the owner kindly upgraded us to a bigger room with a balcony overlooking the river and street. It was beautiful. She informed us we could enjoy this room for one out of...

Sopia and her staff and absolutely wonderful. They are extremely helpful and welcoming. They are happy to make suggestions of where to go and what to see, as well as provide information regarding moto hire, money exchange, and tour guide information.

The owner, Sophia, is a wonderful host who was extremely accommodating, spoke exceptional English and provided great local advice. We sussed out some of the other rooms and by far the best room to stay in is the river view room on the fourth floor, as the others looked very basic. The only catch is walking up four flights of...

We only stayed here for one night in the slow season (may 2016). We paid before we arrived and the lady who owns the place is very friendly and speaks really good English. We got put in the "penthouse" room on the top floor even though we only paid for a double room with a window. I think this was...

The title says it all! This small guesthouse offers so much more than a place to stay. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the food is fantastic (at the in-house restaurant) the sparkling conversations with the owners, their kids and the other guests are always intriguing. But now, they offer so much more, customized tours (by military jeeps) visa...
