Extremely friendly and helpful staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Very clean and organized. Family run guesthouse where staff was readily available to help and answer questions. Close enough to pub street to walk there but far enough away to get away from the noise. Good vibes.

Conveniently found in Wat Bo Village, a short walk...

Sam So Guest House is a very nice place to stay, yet very affordable. The family running the house is extremely friendly and accommodating and will do what they can to make your stay more enjoyable, including booking cheap tuk tuks and tours. If you're lucky, you'll get to play with the adorable children when they are out front. The...

Stayed at Sam So Guesthouse for 2 nights. Beautiful property, clean rooms, and most of all wonderful service! Sam So was extremely kind and welcoming, as were the staff. Very affordable to stay here as well, especially considering the high quality of service! Breakfast was also fresh and delicious. Highly recommend!!!

I have stayed here twice while volunteering in Cambodia. The family has made it a home away from home. Short walk (or tuk tuk ride) from the market place or Happy Mall. Tuk tuks are always available on the street or the managers will set you up with whatever you need. Great stay and I'll always return here when in...
