“You ROCK!”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Journeys Within rocks! Engaged Journeys Within for our 3 seek trip to Thailand and Cambodia with four night at the Siem Reap hotel and could not be happier with all aspects. The experience came with fantastic guides, accommodations, itinerary and food in all respects. The staff at the Siem Reap Hotel were all so very helpful, kind, respectful, should I go on, I could. In particular, Phen Po was a delight with is bright smile, exuberant greetings and genuine friendliness, and as with all the staff a desire to help. WOW, Thank you all, I will return.

I've never stayed anywhere quite like this, certainly not in Cambodia: a beautiful group of small villas laid out around a pool in glorious gardens, very comfortable, amazing breakfasts in the restaurant, quiet, restful rooms and all very well-equipped. The young American couple who built this idyllic place help to support and educate people in the local community. They have built a school next door for local kids, and are helping young Cambodians who otherwise might never get a proper education to go through school and university. Many of these charming young people help to run the place, and the service is first-class - always with a dazzling smile. Brandon and Andrea are themselves excellent hosts. They live on the premises with their young family, and are friendly but unobtrusive. It's not only a perfect base from which to explore the unbelievable temples of Ang Wat and the rest, but also a life-changing way to get close to this wonderful country and its people. When you factor in free laundry and free evening tuk-tuks, it's not expensive even by Cambodian standards - and even by having a lovely selfish holiday there you feel you are helping the community. I can't wait to return.

Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nights in May 2008 and just loved it! The place, then called Journeys within Bed and Breakfast, is absolutely fantastic. They only have a few rooms, so it is never crowded and they have got time to be personal. Apart from that, the rooms are just beautiful and a swim in the pool in the late evening after a long day visiting the Angkor Wat area... not much can beat that!

Also, Andrea and Brandon had helped us with arranging also a leg to Battambang and a boattrip across Tonle Sap. On the boattrip across the boatcompany lost one of our bags, but Brandon and his crew were just fantastic in helping us with the police and everything.

If (I'd love to say when, but...) we ever return to Siem Reap, this will be the place to stay!!

Journeys Within has a wonderful facility with great rooms, common areas, dining room and swimming pool. The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. The people are reason to visit. The staff really do their best to make sure every guest's needs are met, from massage to free laundry to recommendations on where to eat and what to do. I came on a photo tour and really appreciate how accessible they make Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, and the surrounding area. This is truely a great base for a visit to the area.

In addition to providing a great hotel, they gave us a great experience. Thru JWOC (http://www.journeyswithinourcommunity.org/), we were able to learn more about the people in the area of Siem Reap and had the opportunity to give back to the community we were visiting. Its great to travel, learn about new places and be able to participate with a great organization. Brandon and team have the right idea: "See a problem: solve a problem" And its a privilage to both enjoy a great vacation and be part of the solution.

The had a wonderful 3 day stay at journey within. We had interconnecting rooms. Both were huge and well appointed. Our two girls aged 8 and 10 had a lovely time in the pool and playing with the owners daughter. The food in the little restaurant was excellent. They even had homemade chicken nuggets for the children. They do your laundry every day for free which is a great bonus. They arranged a guide for us who was also wonderful. They provide a tuk tuk to drive you into the centre of siem reap in the evenings, where we had some wonderful, absurdly cheap meals.
We the family who run the hotel also run a charity from the site next door. They provide an education program for the local community and run a scholarship program putting local people through university, amongst many other things.

We usually stay in 4 or 5 star hotels and this certainly met all our hopes. The perfect place to stay in siem reap
