when you enter the gate of this place you feel on holiday right away. The greenery around the pool with the small pavillions are very inviting and the staff is greeting you in such a lovely way that you also feel home. We had a superbe time here, with great, spacious and very clean rooms. The breakfast is delicious such... More

We had a very good time while staying at the 252. The hotel is at a good location close to many sites of attraction. The staff is more than friendly and always very helpful. They gave good advise on the bus company to Siem Reap and even arranged the tickets with pick-up at the hotel. The rooms are just perfect,... More

Very nice boutique hotel with spacious and clean rooms offering all amenities you need. Outstanding staff who will help you in all matters. Great breakfast to start the day, tasteful dishes at the restaurant and last but not least the best cocktails you can sip around the pool. We will definitively come back to this hotel.

Really enjoyed our stay at the 252. We had a room on the third floor, pool view and balcony, as we are friends that required separate beds the manager agreed by email to make the day bed up into a bed, there was a slight mix up with this on arrival when the staff didn't know and wanted to charge...

Room was ok, pretty good for the money you pay. We were on the 3rd floor, wooden floors a little noisy but ok. Bathrooms clean, terrible water pressure. Beds clean but hard. A/C worked when you had the ceiling fan on. Pool was lovely and clean, kids enjoyed it. Breakfast was ok. 1-2$ tuk tuk to river and markets. Phnom... More

For me, this is one of the top two hotels in PP, the other being the Billabong. You can toss a coin between these two, they are both similar set out, pricing, breakfasts and are operated by friendly owners and their staff. The 252 more often than not for me, is booked out on some occasions I have wanted to... More

This is a fantastic hotel well located and the staff is exceptionally friendly. Good room, great pool and nice breakfast. Lots of tuktuks outside to take you to the main area. I loved this place, can't wait to go back!

I've no complaints about the 252. Our room was smart, the AC and fan were running on arrival, and front desk were very helpful as we were weary for a six hour bus journey. Like another hotel I'd stayed in in Phnom Penh they feature a lot of polished concrete in the design, and the bathroom with open shower area... More

There were positives and negatives about this hotel, which we found expensive compared to others that we had stayed at, with the same or better facilities, in Cambodia. This is our second time to the country and its capital Location: The hotel is fairly well placed to see most of the sights; we walked to some and took a tuk-tuk... More

Dear Stephen, Thank you for your review. It is true that our hotel is well located to see most of the sights in Phnom Penh. There are some homeless at the corner of the street due to the fact that there is a rich Khmer person living close by the hotel offering them money from time to time, but they... More

We 2 adults and 2 children of 14 and 16 years old loved this hotel. A quiet oase in a busy city. Our rooms were very good. Large and clean. The staff was very helpfull and friendly. The swimmingpool was relaxing. Really the place to stay in Phnom Penh. We come back for sure!
