What makes the Prohm Roth Guesthouse so Darn Good? For $15 a night, we had a large, impeccably clean room in the heart of Siem Reap, within a two minute walk to Pub Street and its abundance of restaurants, bars, and shops. Prohm Roth is Khmer owned and operated and the customer service was the best that we experienced in our entire six months of traveling.
Vibe: We appreciated the honest opinions from Meang, Prohm Roth's owner, about what to see and how to see it, and were impressed by the care and attention shown by his whole family toward the hotel and its guests.
Location: The guesthouse is on a side alley off of Pub Street in Siem Reap's Old Market area, and is fairly quiet except for Sunday mornings when the monks in the wat across the street begin chanting at 6:00 a.m. Travelers flock to Siem Reap to visit the magnificent twelfth century temples of Angkor Wat.
Rooms: The guesthouse is in a brand new building and has twin, double, and triple rooms. Rooms are simply decorated and have comfortable beds, en-suite bathrooms, and cable television. While most rooms have air conditioners, the cheapest twin rooms only have fans.
Food: The guesthouse does not have an on-site restaurant.
Keep in Mind: The brand new guesthouse stands in stark contrast to its poorer surroundings on the Pub Street Extension, and the alley is not illuminated, making for a dark walk home at night.
