“Excellent Location, Wonderful Staff, Incredible Experience”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

We stayed at Bou Savy for 5 nights in April 2012. The rooms were immaculately clean, the entire staff could not have been nicer, the food was good - overall the Bou Savy is an excellent value for your money. It is nicely located down a quiet road with a beautiful garden, creating a quiet, relaxing feel. We rented bicycles from the guesthouse to ride our bikes into Angkor everyday. It was about a 25 minute bike ride through a beautiful forested areas. You are also about a 10-15 minute walk to the night market which has nice shopping and excellent dining options. The guesthouse also has it's own tuk-tuks at VERY reasonable prices. The owner is extremely kind and amenable. He let us have a late check out for free on our last day since we booked a night bus to Sihanoukville through the guest house. We would recommend this guest house to anyone in Siem Reap. It's a fantastic place to stay at such an affordable price!! You get more than your money's worth in all ways!

Cafe de la Paix has delicious make your own salads & sandwiches for lunch, Al Forno in the night market is a must if you have an urge for the best Italian food you'll find in Cambodia, and Chamkar in the night market is some of the best overall food we've had in Asia!

When you want value (plus more) for your money in terms of accommodation, Bou Savy is the best place for you. We stayed in Bou Savy from May 6 to May 10 and they provided awesome service to us. We also were provided 10% discount and one free dinner. There was free pick up and the send off only cost us USD3 for the tuktuk ride. The food is awesome. There is free breakfast (we always got the scrambled egg and bread as well as the fried egg and bread. It comes with butter, strawberry marmalade, banana and pineapple. Coffee and iced lemon tea can be selected for beverage). For dinner, we always get the delectable fried rice with mushroom and beef as well as the fried chicken with rice. What's also great about Bou Savy is its proximity to the Angkor National Museam, Lucky Market Shopping Center and Old Market. My partner and I just walk to these places. Angkor Wat is also very near and only 8 kilometers away from the guesthouse. I won't look for another guesthouse when I'm in Siem Reap, only Bou Savy will do for me.

We stayed in Bou Savy for 4 nights and it is hands down the best place we stayed in the whole of Cambodia (and we were there for 4 weeks). The rooms are a really good standard and very comfortable, and the food was excellent and good value for money. What particularly stood out was the professional service - guests are greeted on arrival with a welcome drink and throughout our stay all staff were very helpful in arranging tours/ transport/ food and drink and answering any of our questions. Bou Savy is also great value for money, with decent accommodation and breakfast included in the nightly rate, which is very reasonable. If you are looking for comfort and something which isn't too basic, but which is equally affordable on a budget, Bou Savy is the place to go - If I went back to Siem Reap I would stay there again.

Good welcome with a clean cool towel and fruit shake. Staff were friendly.
Rooms were relatively clean. Toilet was very small and the shower head was broken. The room was west facing so it got very hot in the afternoon. Nice atmosphere outside the room. The guesthouse is next to a primary school so you hear the kids during school hours, which was kind of nice. You could hear the chatter of little voices. Also beside it is a temple which you can visit.
I also stayed at Ta Som 5 min walk from Bo Savy. Both are nice

I loved it here. They really understand travelers needs. The welcome smoothie and cold wash cloth was nice. Everyone was so friendly.
The only thing is there's no reception area, so you just have to go up through the restaurant to that front desk and someone will be with you right away.
We did our laundry, they booked our ticket out to Phnom Penh, we used their tuk tuk driver for our 2 days at the temple (Wivol, he was super friendly and nice. He always waited for us with a big smile). He even packed a cooler with unlimited cold water bottles; kept cold from a huge ice block. That melted water in there felt so refreshing while riding from temple to temple!
A little holdup though-when we booked our bus tix to Phnom Penh, they did everything for us, called, arraigned hotel picked and we were even allowed to add that to our final bill (able to use credit card too. 3% surcharge though). When dropped off at main bus depot, we needed an actual tix to board. Hostel forgot (we didn't think about asking for actual tix, mistake on our part) to give us one. So the bus co. had to call Bou Savy and figure it out, turned out to be no problem, was just a hold up. So don't forget to ask for actual ticket for at least confirmation number.
Breakfast was great, big portions and nice iced-coffee. For dinner, I recommend the beef lok lak or mushroom/chicken fried rice. Amok was just ok and curry was tasteless.
Wi-fi did not work in the rooms, but outside of that area, it seemed to be ok. There are nice balcony seating on every level and an outside computer lobby with 4 computers. Just wear your mosquito repellent!
The water pressure in our bathroom was great. The free bottled water was also a plus.
We stayed a few days longer than intended so we can recover, those temples sure take a lot out of you!
A side note on the temples- 2 days is plenty. Go one day, rest the following day, then go again. The sunset at Bakheng Hill is not worth it.

Room Tip: You might want to stay away from the side closest to the street, those school kids can get real nois...

When I first arrived to this place, I was welcomed by a very sweet smile, a cool mixed fruit juice and warm hand towel by the owners and I had a very good impression of this place. The stay was nice and peaceful. They have restaurant with breakfast and all the foods with affordable menu which I think is good, as it satisfied me. I stayed here couple of times, and I never regret. At guest house, internet cafe', printing / scanning facility was very helping to me and my friends. It was real value for money and very very affordable.
They can arrange transport / tours to any place, also tourist guide and any other requirements for your stay in Siem Reap with no hustle.
They were constructing new building just beside the old one and I hope that is going to be better than the one before, as I was little worried about the Bath rooms, though they were clean but old fashioned fittings. I hope they may have done better changes in new buildings.

Room Tip: All the rooms were almost same, can't say anything about new building. Take care about Mosquitoe...
