“Central Blamche residence was an excellent place to stay while we were in Siem Reap. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and welcoming when we arrived. Our tuktuk driver who was offered to pick us up from the airport with the purchase of this Airbnb was also very nice and was waiting for us at the airport after we completed our Cambodian visa applications. The driver ended up taking us all over the city and also Angkor Wat. It was nice to have the same driver ready and waiting for us as some can be quite pushy. The hotel staff Justin sat us down on checkin and thoroughly explained everything about the hotel and what to expect during our stay. He was very nice and very knowledgeable about everything in the city. The room was very nice and everything worked as it should. The pool area was clean and right beside the restaurant and the staff brought food right to where we had set up. I highly recommend staying at this hotel in Siem Reap!”

“BOOK PAPAYA HOMESTAY NOW! It will be the best decision and part of your Cambodia adventure. Tola's family is absolutely amazing with hospitality and warmth that I have yet to experience in my many travels abroad. Tola's sister-in-law Navy is your main point of contact during your stay. She is an INCREDIBLE cook (literally every dish made my mouth drool) and she will even teach you how to cook if you're interested. The homestay also has an extremely kind driver Sarath, who is one of the most gentle and loving people I have met. He is so generous with his time and he offers incredible insight into changing Cambodian society. He knows all the routes to visit the temples nearby, and will eagerly take you at any time of the day, whether its sunrise or midday. He taught me "by staying local, the money you spend here stays here. The money we make in Papaya is used to fuel local markets, and by paying one person, you're actually supporting 10-15 people." Papaya homestay is a world class homestay. You will not feel like a foreigner, but rather like you are visiting your friends. Which brings me to my next point. Beyond just an incredible stay, it is extremely important for us to consider the ethics of how our travels and tourism affects the communities we visit. Cambodia is rapidly changing, with many development projects driven by foreign capital. Though tourism is increasing, it is destabilizing local communities that cannot compete with these foreign-backed places. This is why it's crucial to stay local, like with Papaya. The money spent here STAYS in Cambodia, which means the difference of having food on the table or not for these families. I implore you to stay at Papaya, you will not regret it! Stay here please!”
