We stayed at the Jasmine Lodge (Guesthouse) while we were in Siem Reap.
Now that we know Siem Reap better we’d choose somewhere in Wat Bo around the river. It’s a nicer area, and more convenient to the centre. However Jasmine Lodge is a really good budget option for families. It’s still walkable to the centre (15-20 mins) which is fine for older kids like ours, but with younger ones you’d need to take a tuk tuk.
We had two triple rooms (three single beds in each) with a good bathroom and aircon. Both rooms were spotless, and the beds really comfy.
The guesthouse provides a good breakfast, and has a great pool, which is perfect for cooling off throughout the day. There’s also a restaurant, and a lounge area where you can hang out in comfy chairs with a beer.
We paid less than $30 a room per night. The owner is a lovely man but the staff are a bit jaded… Understandable when you see signs like this at the entrance.
We refrained from doing any of these things…
I’ll return to Siem Reap and stay in a different area, but I have no problem recommending Jasmine Guesthouse to other families. It’s definitely a great budget option.
