I stayed at Sala Bai Hotel for two nights. The rooms were very clean and always well taken care of. Excellent food at their own restaurant school and they even prepared breakfast boxes to take with you when leaving early to watch the sunrise in Ankor. Love their mission to help young kids in Cambodia getting training and a career...

I was just there last week. I'm a teacher and love the idea of helping student's have a brighter future through free training and job placement. This was why I chose this hotel.

We feel so lucky that we were able to get a reservation (especially since we inquired on short notice) at Sala Bai.

We were traveling, a group of four friends, and reserved...

I love the philosophy behind Sala Bai, and the training of young Cambodians in the hospital industry. They have moved location since I last stayed back in 2014.

We stayed one night in the "Sala Bai Suite" after having enjoyed a truly wonderful lunch. The new school (opened late 2015) is 4-5 minutes 'off' busy Siem Reap center south along the river. An exceptional human size facility for the intended vocational training program which in itself is a wonder. You see it all - classrooms, glassed kitchen workshop,...

“The suite is huge and probably the best value. All rooms are on the second floor with steep stairways.”
