Siem Reap Accommodation : MOTHERHOME Guesthouse

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

While in Siem Reap, Cambodia, Motherhome Guesthouse was our choice of accommodation and I'm happy they've exceeded my expectations.

We got the 23USD daily room rate (good for 2 pax) which included a decent buffet breakfast and an airport/bus roundtrip transfer. Seriously, even without the breakfast, Motherhome's rate is already good value for money plus their customer service is really outstanding.

When we got here, right after settling down on the lobby and me filling out the registration form, they served us this refreshing drink which is actually pineapple juice and handed us chilled towels to freshen up.

 Our room is complete with standard hotel amenities.

It has a flat TV, coffee and tea making facilities, a small ref, a nice air-conditioning and a very comfy bed. Yes, there is free WIFI and free use of their computers at the lobby.

And what made my friend really happy wasn't when he saw the bathtub but when he found out there's a hairdryer (well, you cant mess with his hair, hehe).

When I heard that the room rate includes a buffet breakfast, I lowered my expectations, but truly we are more than satisfied.

The unlimited breakfast selection is ample for everyone and they taste good.

They have your typical American breakfast. 
 Of course, you'll find me digging into the Khmer specialties right away.

This section can take your order. You might want to sample their noodles with the ingredients you prefer and have your eggs cooked the way you want it.

What's breakfast without coffee, tea and orange juice? Of course they have that plus fresh fruits too.

My overall experience with Motherhome Guesthouse is indeed more than satisfying. The place is a bit old but I feel that they are well maintained. My only complaint is probably the unpaved roads outside which tends to be dusty. Well, there was some road construction happening during our visit and so maybe the street is paved now.

At Motherhome Guesthouse, customer service is top priority. The staff know their job well and there's always that extra hand and extra smile awaiting everyone.

    1. Ahaha, yeah, his hair is top priority :) The Khmer noodles is really good and their fried rice too and the pancakes. They mix and match plenty of herbs and spices like basil, cilantro, lemongrass etc. Rice is really of good quality, I can eat alone :)

    2. Haha, can't blame him :) I just had dinner, but reading this has worked me up an appetite, hehe! I love spices & herbs in my food. I heard about the good quality of rice in one of Anthony Bourdain's Asian sojourns. Thanks, Shie :)
