I came here with 5 other friends and just adored Babel Guesthouse and their staff! We spent a few days with their tuk tuk drivers who took us to all the temples and picked us up from the airport. Katrine and Simon, as well as Solomon, were so nice and accommodating it truly made our stay so enjoyable. I highly...

The outdoor area is beautifully done, with simple means, It´s just tempting to stay there once you sat down. On their webiste the Katrine and Simen say it´s intimate, and...

You get a personal tuk tuk driver to drive you around and a free pickup at the airport is included in the regular fair. As I traveled alone,...

Nice and cozy guesthouse. Excellent service! Free internet, the AC cools down your room in a few seconds. The tuk tuk drivers are always there for you if you need to go somewhere. The guesthouse is just minutes away from the marked. If you want to visit Angkor Wat, just inform the staff and they'll set up the whole visit...

A very nice guesthouse with clean rooms and a smiling, friendly staff. You feel very welcome and at home from the moment you arrive, much because of the amazing managers, and the staff is very helpful booking tours and suggesting activities. Also, there is a big focus on being environmental friendly, which I really appriciate. Go Green!

We had a great time at Babel Guest House! Babel took great care of us during our entire stay, from the moment we stepped out of the airport and two wonderful tuck tuck drivers greeted us with the biggest smiles I have ever seen, and until our Babel-booked chauffeur said goodbye to us at the boarder between Cambodia and Thailand....

Nice staff and good location. Apart from a very simple bathroom with a not so good shower, everything else was in good conditions and clean. There is a good area to relax and a nice bar/restaurants with some good options to eat and drink.
