Recommend this place to everyone that is going to cambodia! The guesthouse is so heart worming and you are taken cared of like you are a friend of the family. The food, the stab and the house is beautyful and you get to see and feel more of cambodia than in a regualare hotel. Definitely going back there myself!

Excelent service! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Good food and great atmosphere. The rooms are nice and clean with AC. If you want a pool there is one right next door for a low fee. Overall a really nice and cheap guesthouse. I highly recomend this guesthouse if you are in Siem Reap.

This place is faultless!!! The incredibly friendly owners Katrine and Simon make you feel instantly at home. Together with spotless, clean, chic rooms, a great bar with restaurant and stylish outdoor area, they are Eco aware, fully including the local community. Everything is kept spotless and the wifi signal is the strongest I've encountered in Siem Reap. It's also in...

We loved staying at Babel. The Babel family are very welcoming and filled with info and tips of what to do and when in Siem Reap. The guesthouse is situated along a strip with many other guesthouses, but it is very quiet and peaceful.

Tree days in a relaxing atmosphere of family and professionality. Good advice on what to do, see and eat, as well as organising trips, tickets and transportation. Nothing to worry abour for me. A cosy room with character, but best of all, friendful staff to help us all the way. Wish I could come back soon
