Imprevu Resort
Just say Imprevouille for the tuktuk
http://hotelimprevu.com/bungalows.php

English-French-Khmer spoken staff and management.
Nice bungalows with AC, TV, WiFi, Fridge, etc for more or less 20$. Can easyly bargain 15$ if staying few weeks.
Great swimming pool 25 meters
pool, tennis, computer room, wifi, bar, restaurant with dishes 4$ to 6$, etc
Many ONG goes there for the conference room (and after for the pool!)
I know some couples who stays there for months !
If you have kids, can be a good place to stay for the weekend and enjoy the TWO pools (kids and adults).

11# happy guesthouse

Great place to stay, got 2 locations, one at the lakeside st.93 and one at street 258 (?) opposite of OK guesthouse,
Super friendly staff, lots of backpackers and younger tourists. runned for over 10+ years by cambodian family

Apparently they re construction a new one somewhere close to riverside with 40+ rooms and a HUGE restaurant/bar on the roof with Jacuzzi's and great hangout place. elevator included.

And their rooms are from 5 - 20 $ if im right.
Definitely best place to stay in town for the younger people.
E-mail: happy11gt@hotmail.com

Cheers.

this could be useful information

tuk-tukfish wrote:Mods: you may wish to move this topic to travel, but for the "lol" factor I thought this was the best place for it.

Ok. So yesterday I arrived in PP from Laos. The usual tuk tuk drivers were waiting outside the airport with one offering me a "free" lift on condition that I stay at the King Hotel on st110. When I arrived at said guest house i checked out the overpriced room ($20) but seeing I had avoided paying the driver $7 i thought it to be a good deal. One of the hotels employees took me to my room and noticed that it did not have towels. I had my own so i told him it would be no problem. I went downstairs, I ate, and then returned to my room to have a shower, half way through my weekly cleasning the same employee let himself into my room with a seperate key saying that he had heard me having a shower and wanted give me a towel. I told him politley to rack off.
Afterwards I left the hotel to meet with a fellow forum member to discuss share accomodation. We had a few beers and I returned sometime aftermidnight to find the hotel shut. I asked the same employee as before to grab a key for me. He said we would open my room for me. On the way up to my room he asked "I know you are straight guy but I have money (opening his wallet to show a couple hundred, probably fake, dollars), will you go with me" I laughed and said no, continuing up the stairs. When I realised he wasn't following me I turned around to see him cock in hand furiously jacking himself in the stairwell. This was the breaking point and I said:
-'DUDE PUT THAT AWAY AND JUST OPEN THE FUCKING DOOR"
"No, not until you show some body!"
-"FUCK OFF!"
For some reasons those words must have done it for him as he came all over the wall before fucking off down the stairs. I then had to get the security guard to open my room, where I lay sleepless waiting for exibitionist to come breaking down my door in a gimp suit. Checked out this morning, guy was no where to be seen, and moved to the cheaper, way better Lyon D'or which is staffed by women who can diddle themselves in front of me till the cows come home.

http://www.mandalayinn.com/ :thumbsup:

Mandalay Inn near the Old Market in Siem Reap is a decent cheap place, run by a nice Burmese family. Rooms are decent for the price, free wi fi in all the rooms, cheapish food and beer, balconies to sit and relax and smoke on, and a beautiful teak staircase. They will also arrange a decent tuk-tuk to the temples for you for a set price, $12 dollars for the day last time I was there about 18 months ago.

Dont know why they don't have any photos of the rooms and common areas etc on their site, they're good for the price range and would probably attract a few more customers.

EDIT: Sorry, they do have photo's but they're tucked away right at the bottom of the room rates page, good place, poor website design.

EDIT 2: Edited again to say all the thumbnail photo links are broken, but I thought I'd also post this amusing bit of information from their site about their restaurant:

Our restaurant serve contemporary Myanmar and Cambodian cuisine by decent Chef. This is the only home cooked Myanmar and Cambodia style Restaurant that you could find in CAMBODIA.

We designed to serve delicious food to our precious customer at start from 7am – 10:00pm with very reasonable reasonable price. In case of food requirement after restaurant operation hours, please do not hesitate to ask us to assist you.

We are using local products, which is fresh, clean and safe. Meat - Buy daily, fresh marvelous taste and tender. One thing good that Tonle Sap lakes is just to supply fresh and fabulous fish for you. Of course, vegetables are just get up from farm. As well as Fruit shake make you appetite, main dish take a seat at your stomach and fresh fruit desert close your meal.

Myanmar (Burmese) Food unique menu give you verity of choice. Here is "How's Myanmar Food like?"
The Food style between Chinese and Indian Food. Fried and Braised are seem like Chinese food but different spices and herbs. Curry are almost like Indian style but still different herbs and type of gravy. If you love Indian food or Chinese food, don't hesitate to try our Myanmar Food too.

Cambodian (Khmer) Food is ready to serve you. Well! A lot of people told that Cambodian Food is not really good and often no taste. OK, agree but those all place design for tourist and rely on commission basic sales system. Don't worry still some restaurant are selling quality tasty Khmer food in Siem Reap. We are one of those! "Khmer Food "is similar to Thai and Vietnamese food as well as special herbs give you different sense.

Mandalay Restaurant is selling food with quality and quantity of standard. When you select among our carefully prepared cuisine, we encourage you to be adventurous, to try an eclectic combination of the savor, fragrances and textures offered in our dishes. We hope your meal with us will be a satisfaction to your culinary experience.

By the way! Apology that we don't design for tourist because we do cook the food as we eat, means "home cook". Hope you want to try! Do you?

We have huge menu, here are some photos of food for your figure!!


Priceless! :D

I've never seen Burmese eating in there. Much better in the Burmese place on Wat Bo road.

For a GH Id agree though, better than Popular GH.

For the price, Mandalay Inn is fantastic. Easily the best guest house I've stayed at, in Cambodia. Clean, super friendly & cheap.

I'll be looking to stay there next time I'm in country. Was at the OK, too much KSR backpacker traffic. Hung out mostly at Happy. Great gal managing it, good food too, very relaxed place. Only problem is, not many rooms so probably often full. There is a nice little place with a good size courtyard w/pooltable :) just down the street and around the corner run by a nice French guy and his Khmer wife, clean and good prices. That might be my back up. Area is near the basically on the river but down and away from the action, tho it's just a 15 min. walk to it. Definately for not for those who don't like to laugh at kids in dreads carrying a sitar in a velvet sack slung over their back. :lol:

Someone reccommending limprevu.
You can't be serious!
I have been there many times to eat an swim,but to stay-never.
It is run by French-black mark already.
It is like an old kiwi or Aussie camping ground from the sixties.Wooden bungalows,painted green in a very poor state of repair.
In fact everything is in a very poor state of repair,the tennis court is fucked,the pool is ancient and the tile surround is cracked,the tiles are as slippery as ice as well.
It is right on the widened highway one and very noisy and dusty.
Poor guests arrive at the airport and don't realize that they are staying so far from phnom penh-read trip advisor and see the comments.
