Hotels in Kampot 

Located on the eastern bank of the Kampot river in Central Kampot.  In this area you’ll find a majority of cafes, restaurants and bars. 

If you’re only traveling to Kampot for a few days and want to be able to walk to all your meals than I recommend staying in town.  You’ll feel like a local in no time!

Vibola Guesthouse

This clean and quaint hotel is a perfect price point and great location.  VIBOLA Guesthouse is walkable to town and there are bikes for hire to explore the surrounding area.  The rooms are comfortable and there’s a pool.  A perfect place to stay in Kampot for a few days and great place to stay in Kampot on a budget.

Mea Culpa Kampot

The Mea Culpa Kampot is clean, comfortable and is in a good location near the center of town.  The pizza restaurant here is tasty and has great vibes.

Pippali Boutique Hotel

The Pippal Boutique Hotel has a large pool which is a perfect oasis after a day of exploring.  The bar and restaurant on site are as cute as can be.

This is worth the splurge of places to stay in Kampot.  Mopeds are also available for hire at the hotel.

Places to stay in Kampot | Thvi

On the opposite side of the river is where you’ll find the Thvi area.  If you have a bigger budget and prefer to have a quiets night sleep like I do, then staying in the Thvi area would be an excellent choice.  Here you will find some excellent riverside accommodations in Kampot.

The B Resort

You can’t pick a better hotel in Kampot than the B Resort.  Located across the river and close to the main bridge that takes you over into town.  This place is equipped with a swimming pool, restaurant, bar and room service!

The rooms are bright and spacious.  And you’ll love the balcony especially if you get one over looking the pool.  You’ll enjoy a quit night sleep in luxury.

The Playground

This is a great place to stay if you’re traveling as a family.  The playground is about a 10 minute ride to town.

The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Scooters and bikes are available for rent at the property and this is a great price for a room in Kampot.  

Kampot accommodations

Kampot Accommodations | Riverfront North

The riverfront North is where you’ll find most budget accommodations in Kampot.  Some of the places to stay will be walkable to Kampot town but for the most part you’ll either catch a tuk tuk into town or rent a moped for your time spent in Kampot. 

The moped ride will take you 5 minutes or so compared to the 15 minute walk.

Kool Kampot

Kool Kampot is a great spot on the banks of the river.  If you’re on a budget this is the spot.  Even if you “splurge” for a double room for more privacy is only $17 a night.  There is a pool table on the roof with great views and a fun place to hang out in the hot afternoons.

Mad Monkey Hostel

If you’re looking for a cheap place to stay with a lively atmosphere then Mad Monkey Hostel is right up your alley.  If you love sleep and going to bed early I would spend an extra $10 and get a room at a guesthouse where it will be quietier at night.  They have a great pool and it’s a fun place to meet people.

Bungalow on the River

If you’re looking for a bungalow on the river then you’ll love this stay.  With a 10 minute tuk tuk or moped ride to the town of Kampot it has a perfect location. 

The bungalows aren’t very big but they offer a private bathroom and privacy for a small price of $11 a night so who can complain.  Plus there is WIFI.

 This place only has 4 rooms (bungalows) so forward planning is advised.  Kayaks are also for rent here which always seals the deal.

Outlier places to stay in Kampot

Kampot Hotels in Tuek Chhou & Trapeang Sangkae

These areas are the outliers of Kampot and a great place to stay if you want seclusion, peace and tranquility.  Plus you’ll really feel like you’re traveling off-the-beaten path because most visitors stay in the areas previously mentioned.

Champa Lodge

The Khmer-styled traditional wooden houses that make up the Champa Lodge are picture perfect.  The balconies offer fantastic sunset views and the hammocks are a perfect place to relax afer a day of sight seeing.  Kayaks and bicycles can be arranged at the hotel.  Kayaking around was one of the best ways to explore Kampot.

Le Bokor Palace

If staying in a unique and funky place is always something you go for then you’ll love Le Bokor Palace.  It has been perfectly restored and sits atop the hill over looking Kampot.   The rooms are large and has tasteful furniture.  You’ll fell like a royal staying at this hotel.
