Motherhome Guesthouse of Siem Reap, Cambodia

Most of the times when I travelled with my family and friends, I always in charge of planning the whole trips, including selecting the accommodations. But for this time around, one of my travelmates suggested to stay in this lodge by the name of Motherhome Guest House in Siem Reap. 

We're almost heartattack when we found no more rooms available from Agoda (the first place where I always browse for accommodations), the other alternative would be directly email them asking for any rooms availability and luckily most of the rooms were still available. As no deposit and advanced fees are required and since the rate of the rooms were pretty affordable and reasonable, without any second thought, we knew this is the place we would love to stay in Siem Reap.

Upon arrived at Siem Reap International Airport, we were greeted by a friendly driver, who later on turned out to be our own personal driver throughout our whole trip in Siem Reap. The journey from the airport to the guesthouse took roughly 30-35 minutes.

#1: Refreshing pineapple juice as welcome drink

Before we could eventually do the check-in process, we were instantly welcomed with cool and refreshing pineapple juice and cold towels from the friendly and courteous staffs. The check-in process was pretty fast and convenient with only documentations such as passports were required only. And you know what, the staffs even told us that they will only collect the room charges by the end of our stay.

#3: Computers are provided for the hotel guests for free usage. And there is even massage provided with small amount of charges.

Although we were arrived earlier, Motherhome Guesthouse allowed us to check-in earlier at least into three rooms out of four rooms we booked. Now, shall we look how's the rooms look like? Bear in mind there is no lift within the guesthouse, therefore be ready to carry your bags up the stairs.

#8: Clean bathroom with hairdryer, basic toiletries and even a bathtub

All rooms of Motherhome Guesthouse come with air-conditioner and hot water. On top of that, the most importantly is the WiFi connection is available in each and every room. The size of rooms were relatively average and we don't have any problems of moving around. Just some small minor issue we experienced throughout our stay here where their electricity was tripped for two or three times, sometimes for few minutes and the worst up to few hours. The reason behind was due to failure of major power outage throughout the country, hence it's not guesthouse fault for causing this.

#9: Complimentary breakfast with local Khmer food and Western food

The only downside of Motherhome Guesthouse is the location, where it located few distance away from the famous tourist spots such as Pub Street and night markets. In order to get to those famous tourist spots, we took tuk-tuk which charged us US$2 per trip. However, there are sundry and laundry shop located nearby.
