This is probably the best hotel in Phnom Penh. Only Raffles could come close. There are plenty of cheaper hotels, but the room is 5+ star. The bed & pillows are extremely comfortable. Embarrassing how much time I spent there. The bathroom was 3 separate spaces: a double sink washing area, a separate shower & bathtub, and a separate toilet... More

Unlike the Sofitel in Siem Reap, the Phnom Penh hotel was truly glamourous with its grand entrance foyer, marble walls and floors, and exceptionally well maintained premises. The staff are all very helpful although there were some niggling problems especially with paying by American Express that took far too long to sort out. The rooms were excellent being both spacious... More

If only staying in this hotel you would't think you were in Cambodia. The swimming pool is nice. The Chinese restaurant, Japanese restaurant and bar are nice. You can enjoy shopping at the boutique shop not to mention the khmer massage at the SPA. All you can feel is the sunshine and nice plantation in Cambodia. But have to say... More

I knew I'd come to the right place when I saw the display of various sized bottles of Veuve as I entered the hotel! This hotel is perfectly designed to reflect the nostalgic view I had of the country. It is built on a grand, colonial scale, exuding grandeur. This design concept extends to the guest bedrooms as well. I... More

Dear ShawnLEE1975, Thank you for taking the time writing a review on Trip Advisor and for your complimenting comments. Aeon Mall is a stimulating addition to our neighborhood and there is certainly more development in the area to derive from it. Overlooking the city, the Club Millésime is a considerable advantage to our property. Should you not be a member,... More

If this is what Sofitel hotels are all about, I would stay in more of them. I cannot find a fault with the exception of no Jack Daniels available at the lower poolside : ) The design and interior are very colonial; warm colours and dark wood. Rooms are spacious, have all amenities and are tastefully decorated. The artwork around... More
