We stayed at babel for 5 nights this last march, and it was great! The rooms were clean, the food was delicious, and the staff very accommodating! After backpacking around South-East Asia for 2 months, Babel Guesthouse still remains as one of my most most memorable stays. So I give it a solid 5 star. And its well deserved.

When we walked into Babel Guesthouse it was like stepping into a weird and lovely family.

Babel is an awesome place to stay when you are in Siem Reap. The staff are so service minded, they have "their own" tuk tuk drivers, so dont end up getting fouled. The breakfast and food is great. And the owners are super included and careful! I would love to go back!
