Sarun at reception ensured we were well taken care of during our stay as well assisted us in booking accommodations in our onward journey in Cambodia. A special thank you also...

I love everything about this place, from the large, clean room, to the open garden restaurant, to the responsible tourism message of the business. It is easily the best guesthouse I have stayed at.

Mr. Joy is a fantastic tuk tuk driver. He's very knowledgeable, friendly, speaks great English (and Italian), grew up in the area and knows the best out of the way places, prompt, a true gentleman. I booked him for a 2nd full day because he was so relaxing to be around.

Babel was recommended by friends and it didn't disappoint. All the staff were extremely friendly and the food was decent for days when we were too tired from temple hunting to go downtown for dinner. The real advantage though were the tuk tuk drivers who worked directly for the guesthouse. I am probably the worst haggler in the history of...

Babel is a lovely guesthouse.
