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 house is about a 10 minute walk or 2 minute tuk tuk ride to the center of town and pub street. I would definitely recommend staying at this Guest house for your time in Siem Reap.

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!!!

An excellent guest house with wonderful location and hospitality. It's a budget guest house but we never felt like that. Centrally located property from where everything is walk able. We stayed there for six days. Service is also very good. Staffs are always ready to help you with a broad smile on their faces. Some of them struggle to understand English, but that is not a big problem. I highly recommend this hotel.

We do know about that it is an budget hotel price which we shoud have not expected that high demand but the bed, the shower ect are just unacceptable, uncomfortable and we just feel like nightmare to stay there. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!! I couldn't close my eyes from staying in there even though the service and staff are helpful as positive thing.

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 this part of the country.
