Was so stoked with our stay here after the long boat trip. Picked up right from the boat stop and bus transfer all included, then we were a five minute walk from the night market and the bar strip. Mattresses were thick and comfortable and the rooms had big fans so sleeping was easy. Everything you need for a tour...

I stayed here for two nights with a couple friends. Being all girls we found this a very creepy place to stay. There was group of guys that would stay up drinking and smoking right outside our room everynight. The owner tried to kiss my friend on the cheek for no apparent reason. The rooms were cheap but with no...

I am very sorry to hear you and your friends having an experience such as this. Sok Dee Residence is a separate venue than Sok Dee Guesthouse. At Sok Dee Residence all of our rooms have air conditioning and are kept clean by our new cleaning staff. There also has been internal changeover and restructuring allowing us to provide a...

The rooms are nice and worth the individual prices. But that's not what makes this place earn 5 stars. It's the way its runned. European guys and girls are working voluntarely there and people which do that are always good company. The place is uncomplicated and fun! Met some people there i will never forget. Thanks for everything sokdee! I...

The Sok Dee guesthouse has a great location, very close to the river and with a friendly staff. It has a big space for hanging around with other guests and plenty of Wi-Fi routers, which was a life saver if you're working and traveling at the same time. My dorm room was clean and had enough space for the 4...

We stayed at Sokdee Residence for a couple of days in a room with fan. Room was basic, with private bathroom, and was clean. Location is good - in between night market and the temple, also close to the Mekong river. Staff is really friendly and helpful.8 There is free water and coffee.

We stayed in a private room which was clean and had a decent clean ensuit bathroom. The guest house was fine however there was no special wow factor to it, the staff tried to be helpful however they didn't speak great English. I would recommend this place to backpackers who will make there own plans.

What a negative & depressing hotel. Falling apart and in much need of repair, this guesthouse seems to rely on touting for business on the tourist slow boat circuit rather than online. The management seem to dislike tourists / tourism, and the smallest task is dealt with a like it's a huge deal. We were appalled to be 'told off'...

Stayed in a private room with a friend and at first everything looked great until we realised that we had no toilet seat, no toilet paper and the shower drain was blocked. We reported these faults and the drain was unblocked within a hour but it took 3 days to get the toilet seat installed. On the third night the...

This place is pretty cheap but you get what you pay for. The roof leaked when it rained (quite badly) there wasn't a toilet seat and the room wasn't clean and the A/C was right above the bed so you couldn't use it. Walk around for a bit, it won't take you long to find a better guest house either...

Overall wasn't super impressed with the Sokdee residence. DOES NOT HAVE FREE BREAKFAST We thought it did because I was that on trip advisor and we were disappointed. Hoping that anyone scrolling through reviews catches that so that's why the caps and why it's at the beginning. We also found a cockroach in our room. On the bright side, the...
