A free tuk-tuk service from the guesthouse will take you to the accompdation on arrival if you notify the Owner in advance. The owner and staff are sincere and friendly, and are ready to assist in your travel plan at SR. A welcome drink of banana shake and a plate of fruits will be served when you arrive. The room we had was clean, spacious though basic. No problem, we like it. Good cable TV is available in the guestroom with a attached bathroom. However, the water pressure is weak at the standing shower if you are on level 3. You can expect free internet service and breakfast is served as well. Great place. Thanks to all and Mr Meng.

Tasom Guesthouse is a great place for value. Not only is the customer service good, but the facilities (wi-fi, minibar, bicycle rental, free breakfast), location (relatively near to the markets and city centre), staff are also great (friendly and helpful). Highly-recommended, we're throughly happy to have stayed in Tasom Guesthouse.

We stayed in Ta Som Guesthouse for 3 nights (November 26-28, 2011). We were picked up by the tuk-tuk from Mekong Express bus terminal (included in the package). Upon arrival, we were served with banana shakes and cold towels. Our room was spacious and clean.

PROS: They have several breakfast options (all served with coffee or tea and fruits); Caltex is just beside the guesthouse; Angkor Archaeological Park is just 10 minutes away; free tuk-tuk ride to Pub Street (5 minutes away | 10-15 minutes by foot); soap and shampoo were provided; being a Capitol tour branch office, I was also able to book us bus seats to Bangkok; souvenir :D

CONS (minor): It takes some time for the aircon to cool the room; the TV has limited English channels; the room only has a 'makeshift' cabinet; I don't know why but the beds were too high; towels were not changed daily (I think you have to request for it)

If you're looking for cheap but comfortable place to stay in Siem Reap, you might want to consider Ta Som Guesthouse.
