Siem Reap Guesthouses

Two Dragons Guesthouse & Restaurant
Tel - 063 965 107 / 012 868 551
Wat Bo, Street 20. Clean rooms with air-con, hot water, cable TV, from $15. Surprisingly good restaurant for American breakfasts and basic Thai-Chinese food. Inexpensive Angkor tours and transportation to other points.


I have stayed at "the legendary Two Dragons" a number of times over the years and eaten at their American/Thai Restaurant more times than I can remember. Very nice staff, good food, comfortable accommodations and a very good chance that you might run into one or more of the old-timers (like myself) who often come back for a meal and just to see who else might be in town.

Shadow of Angkor - 063 964 744
353 Pokambor Avenue, Siem Reap.
One block from the Old Market(Psar Char), and on the river. - close to Pub Street. It is in a French colonial building with a decent Restaurant and bar. I have tried to stay at this guesthouse a number of times because of it's incredibly good location in the Old Market district and next to the river, but they were always full. My fault because I often travel without booking in advance. They do have a second location in a modern building on the other side of the river in the Wat Bo district. Run by a Cambodian family (Seanghour and Davy), very hospitable and friendly family and staff.

Rosy Guesthouse - 063 965 059
Slar Kram Village. next to Siem Reap River
Very popular long running guesthouse with bustling bar, restaurant and large balcony overlooking the Siem Reap river. I have never stayed at this guesthouse but I have eaten quite a few breakfasts and lunches here. A very good place to stop at either on the way to or back from the temples by bicycle. This is an older photograph, so the front of the place looks a bit more modern these days, but the ambience and service is still the same.


Comfortable rooms with hot water shower bathroom, large TV, DVD player, free WiFi connection, fridge, fan and air conditioning US$16up. Rooms with shared hot water shower bathrooms and fan only, tv and DVD player and free WiFi connection US$9.

European Guesthouse
