Captain Chim's Guesthouse: A very friendly owners and offer a free laundry

The guesthouse is just a few meters from the bus stop (Sorya bus) terminal. Arrived before noon our room wasn't ready yet. They have a restaurant which very convenient while waiting our room to be ready we could take our late breakfast

The lady owner was very friendly and accommodating during check-in. I actually reserved two rooms by booking.com, one for my daughter and one for us, so it was normally two double room, because single room it wasn't available

During my reservation there's probably some kind of misunderstanding which I clearly booked two rooms with aircon. When the owner said that both rooms are only fan room which I thought and clear during my booking that I book two aircon room for the price

So, she insist that we go for upgrade with a few dollars more we can have an aircon room and we agreed. There is no way I would take a non aircon room, impossible to sleep with fan only

All rooms are upstairs, you have to carry your baggage up there. (no elevator). Free WIFI overall (extra plus)

Our room is on the first floor very spacious room with airconditioning which was necessarily in Cambodia. One thing I like here is the shiny floor and the tiled wall. The room looks great with beautiful tiles and looks so spacious and clean

We have NO hot water which apparently we didn't really need the hot water

The bathroom is standard not super clean. First thing I always check is the bathroom, but this is often in Cambodia and in some other countries in Southeast Asia. I think is typical in asian countries, guesthouses spent less money on bathroom, but this is one thing you'll have to consider if you don't want to spent more money on accommodations.

The room cost $16 a night and you get free laundry if you needed one. Give the laundry in the morning before 10 am and you'll have it in the evening

They'll arranged bus ticket to various destinations in Cambodia

And if you'd like to go on tours to Bokor hill national park, they'll arrange for you. But is a lot cheaper to do it on your own, "rent a motorbike for $ 5"

They have motorbikes for rent and is a few dollar cheaper than elsewhere in town. The restaurant is good if you want breakfast in the morning. For dinner they haven't much of choices except for local food

They also offer free pick-up to and from bus terminal, is such a nice place to stay in Kampot right in the center. The Kampong river is just a few minutes walk. The restaurants in town are within walking distance the night market is closeby. You are very close to everything. Highly recommended to stay in Kampot if you don't want to pay a lot of money and you're in the center

Blissful guesthouse: Cheap digs

One of the cheapest

$6 for ensuite double room with fan

Rooms are grubby and falling apart but ok for a cheap option

There's a great easy going vibe with a nice garden with benches and hammocks

There's a cafe and bar and pool table

Perfect for a budget

Botanica guesthouse: Wonderful (review for Kep not Kampot)

Boutanica guesthouse is located about 3km of what you can probably call the centre of Kep. We got a $2 tuk tuk to drop us there. They offer free bikes so it's easy to get around. We paid $16 for a double room en suite with just a fan. Hey have 8 bungalows which are set in lush vegetated gardens. Each has a comfy sofa and hammock outside for some serious chilling. They have an awesome pool and there's a restaurant with pool table. The owners are very friendly and can organise rabbit island trips. We loved it here and would return one day

Homestay Cafe: New in town

new in town run by the ex owner of the little garden bar,that's good for kampot.A bit quirky ie Khmer design (mind your head when ascending the stairs) otherwise clean comfortable and cosy, fan room with attached bathroom hot water,balcony with nice view of the mountains and river power line included I did say quirky.Wifi connection.Norm will serve breakfast to your room or on the balcony.This place is more home stay then guest house,Norm cooks up a storm in the kitchen and the aromas permeate the air adding flavours to a very nice atmosphere.His staff also cook up fine khmer fair and all at a very reasonable price. I paid $8 per night for my room.
Norm coordinates home stays for those interested and can help with information on volunteering.
Buntha can arrange all your tours Bokor etc and travel requirements.
Two thumbs up

More reasons to stay here.
Great value,atmosphere and all around friendlyness.Quality food,nice location.
Norm has been involved with some grass roots organisations.His cafe and some private funding help support the TIN CAN KIDS Project. .

The Marchbank Suite: A one room hotel just for you...

A real suite on top of a well-known restaurant in Kampot: Jasmine. One big living-room (with a huge collection of DVDs, and not the usual chuck norris/bruce lee combo but the likes of jim jarmush, chen kaige and the Coen brothers), one big room overlooking the river

the landlady is absolutely lovely, the landlord is a photographer (and a wargame amateur on the look-out for fellow gamers...)

all this for 36$/night

you're not in a hotel though... if the evening has been busy at the restaurant, don't expect your breakfast before 8.30. a great excuse to stay in bed...

formerly Little Garden Bar Guesthouse: Little Garden Guesthouse is no longer

The Little Garden Bar Guesthouse is no longer and is now called Riverside ?????? I was touted at the bus station with signs saying "Little Garden Bar Guesthouse" and gladly went with this as I had read good reviews about the place. Upon arrival, I wasn't even greeted with a smile or an hello, so my first impressions were a little jaded. But things got steadily worse. My room was okay at 18$ but you would expect that having been completed only last month. What I found most distrubing was the heavy touting every time I walked in or out of the guesthouse. They also were recommending me to other restaurants until I found out that Norm and Barbara, the original owners of the guesthouse, still run the adjoing Little Garden Restaurant where their friendly staff can organise all your tours and travel needs.

So beware, fellow travellers, of anyone touting Little Garden Bar Guesthouse.

Great view, unfriendly staff.

Kampot Guest House: Kampot Guest House

Well, me may have been just unlucky, but they did not make our room and our breakfast order took them 45 minutes to make. The other day we ordered a simple pineapple shake, just to learn after 45 minutes that they don't have pineapples anymore....

Anyway let's stick to the facts... rooms come with (USD 10 - 15) or without Aircon (USD 3 - 7) and with TV, but without Fridge.

Well located in walking distance from the bus stop. Nice patio with Hammocks.

Kampot Guest House: Ant breeding ground

On arrival in Kampot we got charged $1.00 for a 2 min tuk-tuk ride to this place highly recommended in the Lonely Planet guide book.

The walls were painted in a sickly yellow (thats the parts that were plastered) there was pink curtains that wouldnt close and tacky 'i love you' on the bed sheets

Even the 1000's of ants sharing the room with us were embrassed to be there.

All for $15.00 a night! They even had the cheek to use a picture of the place next door in the broucher!

none
