We chose the Blue Tongue Cafe due to its Trip Advisor reviews, and the obvious Aussie connection being a nice touch. And at $33 US a night for the suite, there is not too much we can complain about really. The hotel seems pretty new and in good condition; our room was big and clean, though a bit unusually laid...

Totally loved this hotel for its location and chilled atmosphere. Spent only one evening, but enjoyed the AC and shower - huge shower head and plenty of hot water. Service was outstanding and friendly smiles all around.Phonm Pehn seems to be quiet lately, hence the cheap rates which are excellent for this time of year. I'll be heading back pretty... More

I have been in and out of phnom penh many times and I always choose to stay at this hotel. Why? Simple. AFFORDABLE (I paid like around 25USD a night) COMFORTABLE (well-equipped clean rooms) GREAT LOCATION (extremely close to city centre and right next to the night spots). Check this place out!

This is not a bad little place, actually. It's location is great, near Soriya shopping centre, Central market, Tonle Sap river. It's near the nightlife, and all that includes, but this is Asia and the whole thing is just great. Staff are very friendly and try very hard to please you, but there's always a slight miscommunication wherever you go.... More

If you are a light sleeper, expect to be disturbed by next door activity, luggage being dragged and even people talking in the lobby due to the thin walls. This was even though we were given a room on the 2nd floor. Beds are rather high. Bathroom is small and has no curtain. Wifi only in the cafe. Breakfast was... More

Initially after reading some reviews and seeing some of the photos, my expectation was high as it was rated above average. I would say it's over rated. On my arrival, it was raining and the cab stop me in front of the main entrance which was flooded. No one bothered to help us with the baggage or at least an... More

When there have been problems they were resolved quickly. The location is good, but it is in the red light bar area so expect some... More

Horrible experience. We booked a triple sharing room, the rooms were clean but the toilet had a massive pipe problem which caused the whole bathroom floor to flood after a shower. Housekeeping was abysmal as my pillow had disappeared without a trace and all our bed cushions were placed on top of the cupboard, making it dirty. Housekeeping staff had... More
