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...

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.

What an Oasis the Norvegian owners of Babel have created: A guesthouse where Cambodian staff gets education and training in hospitality, tourism, environmental awareness and of course a fair employment. Rooms are very clean, food delicious, staff welcoming and friendly, can't wait to visit again!😀

This was a wonderful family run place with a great staff and tuk tuk drivers. The location is good and activities are within walking distance. Pert, our tuk tuk driver took great care of us while visiting the temples.

We chose Babel over other SR hotels because of the consistent good reviews and the stated mission of the guesthouse to be socially and environmentally conscious. The room itself was large, cool, and fairly basic (exactly as we expected). The lounge in front of the hotel is comfortable (if a bit buggy) and we had a nice interaction with the...

We knew we were in for a treat when we checked in and were given the "Morten Harket" family room.
