Clean, comfortable spacious rooms. Very well-run. The pool and cabanas are a great place to lounge during the heat of the day. Breakfasts are very good. The Asian food at the restaurant is a bit on the safe side but there's lots of great restaurants in the area.

The rooms facilities and a staff member is why I probably wouldn't stay here again. The room doesn't come with a phone, and we were on the top floor, so if you want to contact reception you have to walk down 4 flights of stairs. And there was no blankets on the bed, no idea why. We were also waiting... More

Have been to Phnom Penh a number of times, this is the first time at 252 and so glad we found it. The rooms were great - staff extremely helpful and the pool and restaurant were an oasis. The hotel and surrounds are kept very clean, all the staff were very helpful and friendly. Great service. The food at the... More

We only had one night in Phnom Penh on this occasion, so it is hard for me to comment on the location of this hotel - but I think fairly central. Plenty of convenience stores nearby. The pool and outdoor bar / restaurant are lovely, and it certainly feels like an oasis in a busy city. You would never guess... More

The 252 was a bit of a treat for us in Cambodia whilst on honeymoon. Whilst more expensive than regular hotels in the city, we chose the 252 for its pool and large, comfortable and stylish rooms. We didn't regret it, this is a great place to stay. When you're in the courtyard you don't feel like you're in the... More

I stayed at the 252 for 3 months and can definitely recommend it to future travellers. First of all, the location is ideal, right at the intersection of Phnom Penh's 2 main streets and just a short tuktuk ride away from all the important sites. Amenities are great, with a gorgeous pool surrounded by cosy couches and coffee tables where... More

This is a nice small hotel. They have a lovely pool and outdoor lounge area and the restaurant serves nice meals, if with a somewhat limited menu. The rooms are comfortable. When I stayed there a few longer term expats were frequenting the public areas. A nice oasis from the surrounding teeming city. One drawback, it is not located near... More

Phnom Pehn is a big noisy and dusty awesome city. The 252 was a lovely oasis amidst the noise of the City. The food was some of the best hotel food I,ve ever had (and we travel lots). The pool is awesome! It's so hot in that city so a pool is a must. And this pool has great little... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in the heart of Pnomh Penh and could have stayed longer. The pool is lovely and the staff (now I know that this is nothing special for Cambodia) very friendly and charming. The rooms are quiet large and clean! Yes clean! However for my taste there were too many children in this... More

We apologize for the noisy children, this happens occasionally only and we always try to keep the acoustic level reasonable. We hope to welcome you back next time you visit Cambodia.
