After spending one night at a guest house suggested (rather strongly) by our motto driver into town from the boat dock, we found this entirely Cambodian affair to be just what the doctor ordered. It was simple but clean and very well located. It was also quite affordable with a double with private bath and fridge going for $7 per night. It had the bonus of a TV with HBO right in our room and for an additional $3, you could have air-conditioning. We were too cheap to buckle under but I think if I was to go back at that hot (February) time of year, I would shell out the extra bucks.

Unique Qualities: I know watching TV while traveling should be banned but after a couple months of traveling around Laos/Cambodia/Vietnam, we found the nightlife lacking. Also, when you are getting up at four in the morning each day to get into Angkor Wat, it doesn’t make much sense to drink the night away. So, to save some money, we’d get some beer and watch movies in our room or sit on the balcony and enjoy the street scene below. The fridge was a real plus as we could freeze water up for the next day. It was cheaper than buying it at the ruins and much colder too! Also, you could get great beers like ABC stout rather than drink the fairly tasteless Angkor beer.
