I think the thing that impressed me most about the Babel Guesthouse was the staff and the atmosphere they created. We were busy all the time during our 4 day stay and the staff facilitated our every need. The bar restaurant was good and there were lots of people eating and drinking most of the time. People seemed to be...

Good location if you don't want to be in the heart of Siem Reap but within walking distance of all bars etc. Clean and friendly guesthouse with friendly knowledgeable staff. Food wasn't the best we had on our trip but plenty of options to eat outside. We enjoyed a nice relaxing time when back from trips lounging in the garden...

A great little guesthouse tucked away at the end of a small, quiet street. Perfect to use as a base for exploring the temples and areas surrounding Siem Reap. The rooms are spacious and clean, with hot water shower and air condition, both of which you'll appreciate after a long day of temple sightseeing and jungle trekking. If you prefer...

We stayed here the second time. We liked it because it serves well for the need of the travellers. There is no pool at the Homestay, but the neighbours built a big one, which you can use for a small fee. The only problem are the mosquitos, entering the rooms from everywhere. There are Nets, but they are coming from...

Room and bathroom was very clean and the air conditioner worked well. And we were able to book a tuk tuk driver for the various Angkor temple complexes at the front desk and pay all together. Easy and convenient. We were very pleased with our accommodations, our driver, and our stay overall. Could have found cheaper but the price was...

I stayed 4 nights at this lovely guesthouse. They came to pick me up with the tuk tuk at the airport what I really appreciated after a very long flight and jetlag. The driver was so friendly and explained some tourist interests on our way to the city. The guesthouse is very central but at the same time far enough...

Heidelberg, Germany

Friendly, community-minded, good value guesthouse. Helpful staff, excellent tuk-tuk service associated with the house to visit the temples of Angkor. For a guesthouse self-identifying as "eco", however, it was surprising that the vegetarian options were almost inexistent. Much room for improvement there.
