From $4 bunks to $400 suites, Sihanoukville caters to all budgets. Hotels and guesthouses can get incredibly busy during public holidays and festivals, when it’s as well to book if you want to stay at a particular place, though you’re unlikely to be completely stuck for anywhere to sleep. During peak season (Nov–March) and major holidays (particularly Khmer New Year), hotels may hike their prices up by 25–30 percent. It’s worth trying to negotiate a discount if you plan to stay for a week or more, or if you arrive during the week, even during the peak season. Pretty much all accommodation now offers free wi-fi and most can make bus and tour bookings.
