These homes, built along the shore of the Tonle Sap, are raised atop stilts to prevent flooding during the rainy season. You may be able to arrange a stay in one of the thousands of stilt homes throughout Cambodia.

In Siem Reap try the Mahogany Guesthouse which is on the east side of the Siem Reap river near highway 6. It is a two storey building with a veranda used for socializing or gatting a cold beer.

In Phnom Penh try Narin's Guesthouse located on 50 125th St. in Phnom Penh. They offer good meals, the place is clean and family run. Prices range from $3 USD to $6 USD.
$4 USD for a single and $6 USD for a double.

Affordable and clean.

Don't remember the names any moore, but on the banks of the lake in Phnom Phen there are several guesthouses, cheap and not too clean. Nice to hang in a hammoc, wtching the sunset with a cold one...
prices are in the region of 2-5 dollars a night

All these guesthoues are quite alike. Cheap and ok. It is better to stay there than in a hotel in the center of town.

Sunway Hotel

Phnom Penh now has the usual array of top-class hotels to pamper visitors on expense accounts. As good as any is the Sunway Hotel, a part of the Allson International group. It's close to the embassy district and offers all the usual business facilities. At 60-80 dollars a night, it's a bargain by international standards. If you don't stay there, at least sneak in for their lavish midday buffet.

I stayed at the Sofitel Royal Cambodiana. Definite 4 star and good service. Close to many attractions in Phnom Penh.
About US$200/night

Everything works and service is efficient. Many other places with local character though. Worth checking alternatives.

It's also expensive

Hotel Ta Promh: Siem Reap

Hotel Ta Promh - a nice looking hotel with comfortable decor. The room was fairly basic but clean and tidy. A little noisy if you are on the ground floor.

The hotel caters mainly to package deals. Breakfast was included. There is a Bar, Restaurant and Beer Garden.

Opposite a little park and river and up the street from a local market.

City Central Hotel: Phnom Penh

My hotel in Phnom Penh (which was listed as being 5 Star) was certainly not the standard of a 5 Star that we expected but this, we were told, was the norm in Cambodia. It was really your usual tourist class hotel and it was certainly clean and tidy.

The water pressure wasn't great due to the tank apparently being on the roof and no actual plumbing to pump the water for pressure. The shower was a hand held style with no wall mounting.

There was a restaurant/coffee shop, plus bar.

Hotels and guesthouses are the best places to stay. With prices rarely more than $5 US (guesthouses) or $15 US (hotels), you can't go wrong. Guesthouses are more 'rustic' but they also usually have an adjoining restaurant or you are invited to eat with the family. Hotels are very basic but are usually clean, provide good service, and are quite safe. In towns like Siem Reap, lodgings can book up quickly (during peak times), so choose the first room you can -- you can always 'move' somewhere else the next day. Prices are going to increase (?) in and around Siem Reap in the coming months/year. There seems to be an incredible amount of construction on new hotels ('real hotels' with 'real prices' -- some of them starting at $100 US a night) and that may or may not push up prices. But, most of all, be flexible.

I stayed in a hotel called Morakat in downtown Phnom Penh. The Morakat is conveniently located a few blocks from the central market on a side street. The rooms are reasonably clean and the location is away from the worst traffic noise. The rooms are airconditioned. A single room costs $20.

In the same area around the central market there are plenty of hotels. The prices start from $5 for a room with a fan. If the room has airconditioning then the prices start from around $10. If the price is above $20 then it is already a good quality hotel according to Cambodian standards.

There are also several guest houses in Phnom Penh. These are popular among backpackers. The prices are slightly lower than at the hotels.

It is also possible to stay in private accommodation. Many poor families would be glad to accommodate you in return for a small additional income. Unfortunately few people speak English, so the communication is a problem. Everybody knows the word 'hello'. Even small children greet you with a 'hello' when you walk by. Unfortunately there are not so many people who know more than this.
