We had a few nights in Phnom Penh at a conference and aimed to find somewhere close to the conference venue, hence choosing here. We were picked up as promised, but refused the drop off that we had agreed with the Manager. The rooms were small and depressing. The walls and bedding had in-ground dirt. When I arrived I had...

This place is cheap but it isn't great to say the least. Firstly, I booked a double room... They gave me a twin saying it was a 'three person room'. Not entirely sure how that worked? The room I had was dirty and mouldy. The staff were okay. I felt very unsafe here. Luckily I had only booked for one... More

Kha Vi Guesthouse is a very affordable place to stay, but you get what you pay for. The room was very small and cell-like. It was also quite dirty, as is smelled of vomit from the previous inhabitant. The door to the bathroom is very low, so one cannot mindlessly wander into the bathroom without risking a good knock in... More

It's a great location in 258 St just behind the Royal Palace. Easy walking to many places in the city. The rooms are small and basic but the prices are small as well. The service is average and could be better. The parade of tuk tuk drivers out the front do not help the atmosphere but what can you do... More

This was our first stop on our trip around Cambodia. We arrived very late and the staff were welcoming given the late hour. Our room resembled a converted bathroom with tiled walls&it was only in the morning did we realise that behind the window was a brick wall - no mosquito nets were provided but we managed to sleep bite...

Couple of minor annoyances with this place which include communication with the staff being quite difficult which basically led to not feeling that comfortable around them. Breakfast isn't included in the price and the prices are slightly inflated compared to others. The poor communication skills leads to incorrect orders at breakfast which they will probably try and charge you for... More

Stayed at kha vi guesthouse two days ago and enjoyed it a lot. The location is very central just a view minutes to mekong river and the royal palace. It is clean, safe, quiet and you even have a satalite TV. The Staff is friendly and helpful but not pushy. There are a lot of nice shops, bars and Restaurants... More

Good value for budget travelers. Only a few minutes walking to Mekong river, royal palace and national museum are nearby. My room was a very basic room on second floor, wifi was weak can't connect. This room just right above the kitchen I can smell whenever they cook. Good for a short stay.
