I stayed here after a particularly bad stay in Phnom Penh, so comparatively, it was an oasis! It is a bit hard to tell from the road, because the building is obscured by the front garden/outdoor lobby/restaurant, but the facility itself is a very interesting building. The inside is very clean, but also has the charm of a structure from...

We stayed 4 nights. It is a basic place with friendly staff and good, well priced food. The guest-house is located down an unmade road with guest-houses on either side so no shortage of Tuk-Tuks or places to eat within a 10 minute walk. If you want the main drag (and we did not) then it would be a 20...

Babel is a fine guesthouse. It is clean and very quiet. I had breakfast and lunch there (not included), it was good. Free pickup from bus station, that is nice. The bed was good. There was a big hole in one of my sheets but they changed it when I asked. The garden and the restaurant/bar are really nice but...

The Babel Guesthouse is fantastic. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the air con works well, the outside bar area is a great place to relax after a hard day at the temples. However the very best bit is the staff, they are all so very friendly and will help you sort out anything that you need. We stayed...

The staff and the restaurant make this place memorable. The staff speak good English, are kind, helpful and remember your name! The restaurant is cheap, convenient, and yummy. The accommodations are basic but it's a perfectly fine pace to stay. There wasn't much water pressure but the water did get hot! The guesthouse really tries to recycle and reuse material...
