After a recent 6-night stay I can see why this guesthouse so justly deserves all the “excellent” traveller ratings it receives and is every bit worthy of the “2017 Travellers Choice TripAdvisor Award”. It is incredibly well run by the delightful Ly family and Lori – the “foreigner in residence”. They take care of all your needs and there doesn’t...

When we stayed at Seven Candles Guesthouse we felt like we were staying in someones home. In a way we were. The owner, Ponheary Ly and family live on site. The Guesthouse is open and airy, with several areas to sit and relax. The rooms are clean, comfortable and a great value. They offer a very good cook to order...

Basic, but comfortable with a good breakfast and very very friendly people. Lots of good information and transportation (bikes etc) available. I will continue to stay here whenever I am back in Siem Reap.

A great base for exploring Siem Reap. Would definitely stay here again. Great value for money! Staff were accomodating and pleasant, providing helpful information upon check-in with the low down on where to eat and what to do as well as free pick-up from the bus station. Building was breezy and homely with films, shows, games and books all readily...

I love this place. This was the first place I stayed on my own and I was made to feel so welcome and comfortable.

Really helpful staff. The room was basic but had everything we needed. They organised our transport to Angkor Wat and the airport and at fair prices. The breakfast was nice but remember to use insect repellant. Location is good and walking distance to restaurants and the main areas. There is a convenience store across the road and a few local...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Seven Candles Guesthouse and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. While the room was a bit warm at first, the fan and A/C cooled it down very nicely. The wet room shower took a little getting used to but was perfectly functional. What we liked most were the friendly people running the guesthouse....

The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was small but functional. The bed was ok but the pillows were very hard. The shower was limited but it was an inexpensive place to stay. They told us that we could use the pool "next door" if we bought food and drink there. Turned out to be more like a block...

Thanks for your review and the heads up that the hotel down the road has suddenly changed their policy without letting us know. Luckily there are hundreds of great pools all over town, so we will turn our attention elsewhere.

Thanks for your feedback and for bringing the electrical problems in room 214 to the front desk. They have been remedied. It's not safe in a developing country to have electrical outlets in a bathroom, especially in a wet room, so that's why there aren't any in there. Instrastructure is just not yet up to par. :) Also, I hope...
