We travelled in a group of four and experienced great hospitality from Sarom and Anelyse. Besides tidy rooms I would like to highlight the tours they offer. We took the day tour by tuk-tuk around Battambang and its an experience I will hardly forget. During the tour Sarom showed us the most important aspects of life, culture or history of... More

The only home stay that we did while touring Cambodia. Sam and Analyse were very accommodating and awesome hosts. Our room was very spacious and contained enough storage to stow our gear, there were two bathrooms with good hot showers with ample water pressure. The family style breakfast each morning of bread, homemade jams, local fruits, tea, coffee and juice... More

Staying with Sam and Anelyse was one of the highlights of our trip to Asia! It's hard to get to know Cambodia outside of the tourist destinations and our daylong tour with Sam helped us to get a better understanding of the country and appreciation for how people continue to live in outside of the city. The tour was so... More

Staying at Chez Sam with Sam and Anelyse is like staying with family or friends. We enjoyed the experience of staying in a typical middle class Battambang home with a local family who also took care of all our local travel arrangements as well as pointing us to the best value restaurants in town for top Khmer food. We also... More

Most guide books will mention that Battambang has nice colonial architecture but there is so much more to this place and going on tours organized by Sam will help you see and appreciate this. The tours have unique destinations that you will not get with any other tour and as they're small, its an intimate and close up experience not... More

We stayed two nights Chez Sam. It's a bit outside Battambang, but you can easily walk or bike to the center. The rooms are nice and the breakfast is good, but what makes this place a great one is the people. Anelyse and Sam are very friendly and we had a great time. But mostly, don't miss (whether you stay... More
