I lived in Bantaey Meanchey for a year, and when we would come into Sisophon, this is where we would go. It's not as nice as the Pyramid Hotel, but it's cheaper and still pretty nice. It has a little cafe attached to it where you can get some western type food that's pretty darn good. The staff there are so nice and helpful. This is definitely most expat's choice of hotel in the city. But please remember, this is a third world country, this isn't America, so you can't expect everything to be up to Western standards.

It is OK hotel as general but have to warn other travellers because money was stolen from the room, meanwhile we were walking in the city.
Came from Siem Reap and in the hotel there counted our money and split it into 100-200 and placed to different wallets and bags.
Had overnight at Botoum Hotel and in the next morning went to Thailand border. After crossing the border went to change money. And from every location 10-30 USD were missing. The only place the money could have got missing was the room of the hotel, we had our bags there. It all seemed very safe and there was no other guests or walk through people. And only 2 boys at the reception.
Wrote several letters to hotel but never got any answer. Please be informed and very careful and if possible don´t stay at the place where you could very "cleverly" robbed. We were lucky that all of the money was not taken, because we discovered it just after crossing the Cambodia-Thailand Border.
Next door you will find 2 other places to stay

Room Tip: Just be aware of the theft possibility, although it seems very decent

If you are in Sisphon, in northwest Cambodia (about 30 miles E of the Thai/Cambodia border; try the Botoum Hotel. It is located just SE of the roundabout where the main highways (National Highway 5 and Highway 6) diverge. The owner and the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful, and the price is more than reasonable. The owner is in the process of enlarging the hotel, which promises even greater service and friendliness. The room was clean, quiet, and safe. I left my bike unlocked, confident it was secure. I give it a top rating.

We stayed here for 5 weeks last year and one week this year and found it to be very reasonably priced with lovely, friendly staff. Ok, the rooms could do with decorating but a fridge, free wi fi,TV, en suite and aircon for $15 a night is a good deal. This year there was a lot of building going on which didn't disturb us but which meant that their little cafe was closed but there is a local restaurant next door which serves meals all day.

What a great find! Stayed here on a bicycle trip from Siem Reap to Sisophon, then again from Battambang back to Sisophon on way to Thailand. Very good WiFi in room, AC is cold (and quiet) in rooms, and cable TV (HBO, et al). All for $15 a night. Loved staying at the Botoum and highly recommend. The owner and staff are excellent; very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Excellent WiFi in rooms 205 and 206.
