Garden House GuesthouseAddress: 129, A\' Char Hem Chiev Road, 12206 , Siem Reap view map
One of the first guesthouses in Siem Reap, the Garden House has 30 rooms in a 3-storey building in the heart of town, surrounded by Khmer and European restaurants and a 10 minute walk from Psar Chaa market.The guesthouse is a wooden building built in the traditional Khmer style and is ideal for guests who prefer both a quiet environment and a convenient location. A small shop sells drinks and a large, open balcony is a good place to read one of the books on offer. The owners are a retired doctor and his wife and they run the guesthouse with their sons, one of whom serves as a tour guide and driver and the other, while physically handicapped, can speak English, Thai and Japanese. Russian, Vietnamese and French are also spoken as well as a little Chinese.
My name is Ith Kim Phan (far right) and I am a retired doctor. My family and I run the Garden House and work hard to serve our guests. Open since January 1992, Garden House was one of the very first guesthouses in Siem Reap City. My eldest son, Phan Sothiravirak, works as a tour guide and taxi driver and will take our guests anywhere they like. My other son, Phan Putheanoupheap (far left), was born with a physical disability but is quite adept mentally. He is good with computers and can speak English, Japanese and Thai. He likes talking with guests and is very helpful. I speak French and my wife speaks English and Chinese. We both know a lot about the history of Siem Reap and different points of interest. Feel free to ask us any questions. I like gardening and plan to add more plants and flowers to my backyard garden in the near future. My family is committed to offering all of our guests a comfortable and worthwhile stay in Siem Reap. And we welcome your comments on our service. Come and stay with a local family and experience a Khmer-style home.
