I can only recommend to book with Capitol. It's the cheapest Cambodian travel agency by far. I organized everything through them. Even the visa and the bus to Vietnam. I got through the same day and had no problems at all. About the Guesthouse: It's standard, being central in Pnomh Penh. It's near the Orussey market where you can find...

Located near the Orussey market. They provide bus services to all provinces in Cambodia. The receptionIst speaks good English and is very helpful. The food is more expensive than other shops and there is no elevator in the guesthouse.

We've booked rooms by their email address with a quick answer. The staff is friendly and speaks well English. We've had a room the first time without window with a/c and private bathroom. It was clean but a bit smelly. The second time was a room with window, it was clean with a really strong smell of cigarets and we've...

No Muscle-bound Rodents Scurrying About I’ve done a whole bunch of international traveling in the last 30 years. Usually I gravitate towards budget accommodations. What the heck, when traveling I don’t hang out in a room gazing upon the room’s fancy décor, I’m out and about, checking out the sights. Soaking up a little culture. Usually a comfy bed, a...

I foolishly checked into the $4 room with fan and no windows, number 220. Within 30 minutes I was being bitten by bed bugs. I managed to kill two to photograph and show the management. I was offered another room but insisted on a refund, which was resentfully honoured. I left at midnight with no apology to find somewhere else...

Cheap and cheerful. If a room with no windows but clean and cheap is your thing then this is perfect. Centrally located above the Capital buses to Snookyville and beyond. They have just refurbished the café downstairs but it now looks more tacky. Good meeting point however.

Capitol Guesthouse, Cafe, and Tour Bus Company are big and in a very interesting, crowded, run-down part of town just a block from a very busy large local market called Orussey Market. It's not in the touristy area but there are tons of tuk-tuks and it's right next to a street that sells used bicycles. So you could buy a...

I cannot say a word about the guesthouse, but the food they offer is good, take some asisan food not european(why on earth would you), and cheap. They also have a recommandable tour office. We have booked the bus tickets to Siem Reap there and they offer a wide range of other tours! So you can get all in all...

Before starting our trip, I did make a reservation via internet but I didn't receive any reply :'( So when I was in Siem Reap, already bought a local mobile card, I called there and successfully booked a double room with fans and bathroom which costs 6$ per night. The room is spacious, also has a closet and table, but...

I would recommend getting a room with a bathroom as the shared bathrooms are very small, and often not very clean. The staff are friendly enough. The location is alright for seeing the sights of phnom penh but if i was going back to the city i would stay somewhere else as there are not many restaurants/bars close by.
