We had a family room which had a half wall dividing the king bed from the kids beds, which was nice. The bathroom was basic but clean, as was the room. It was very spacious. Decor was nice too. The biggest plus for this hotel is the lovely outdoor dining area next to the pool, and the lovely big cushion... More

The hotel is close to the city centre and all main attractions. It is very modern and has a lovely pool area with sofas next to the bar and restaurant. Rooms were large, clean and comfortable and well air conditioned. And great value for money!

Our stay at The 252 was very relaxing, and the room was clean. Location is close to a few good walkable restaurants (Mok Mony, ST 63) and also fairly close to the main attractions by tuk tuk (Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda). We got a room right by the lobby but didn't find it to be noisy. The breakfasts were good... More

They organised an airport pickup (and didn't complain when our plane was delayed and we were 2 hours late) and even had our room ready 2 hours earlier than the official check in time. The service was great, staff were lovely and attentive and spoke good English, and each room had helpful information about tuk tuk prices and where to... More

We were met with a lovely welcome from staff and that characterised their thoughtful and considerate approach throughout our stay. Our room was on the second floor, overlooking the pool, it was clean, comfortable and with the aid of the air con, refreshingly cool. The food we ate, at different meal times was well prepared and presented and good value.... More

The 252 is the perfect oasis for any traveler to Phnom Penh! Because of its central location, everything is accessible and convenient. Perhaps the best thing about the 252 is the owners, as well as the staff. The owners are extremely helpful, friendly and approachable. Through their many years in Phnom Penh they have much wisdom to share with any... More

This place is literally a hidden gem. It's a beautiful little place, with an amazing atmosphere. When you sit outside, around the pool, you just forget that there's a big hectic city out there. No doubt, the warm welcome, the attentive service, and the willingness to be there for you with anything you desire - will make your days in... More

I visit this hotel every time I come to Phnom Penh and they have always been very friendly and gracious. The restaurant is very good and the pool and its surrounds are beautiful. The rooms are big and clean and the beds are comfortable with soft pillows. There is a kettle in the room and a fridge and a safe.

My husband and I stayed at the 252 on our way through Phnom Penh to Siem Reap (we took the bus from HCMC). It was clean, well located, and the staff is extremely friendly/helpful. Our room overlooked the pool and was extremely spacious. The shower had great water pressure and the bathroom in general was also very large/well appointed. I... More
