Little paradise in the center of Phnom Penh, got a free upgrade to a very nice room, breakfasts are included and à la carte, the owner and the staff are very friendly. Highly recommend it and will stay there again whenever I go back!

I had the utmost pleasure to have my third stay at Circa in February. It was like returning 'home'! I felt so relaxed and well looked after that when my holiday ended I did not want to leave! If you are looking for a lovely, comfortable, warm and friendly place to stay in Phnom Penh then look no further!! It... More

The room at Circa 51 was nice for the amount we paid and the hotel grounds felt safe and secure from the mayhem that lay outside in Phnom Penh. Location felt a bit out, there were small bars/restaurants/marts near but it was a significant walk to get to the main area near the central market and riverfront. An oddity we... More

I enjoyed my stay @ Circa 51, it's not your average small hotel. It has a very personal approach & nothing is too much trouble for mine hosts! I left my iPad in the room & Yvette went to sooo much trouble to return it to me at the airport! This was a major feat as I had already checked... More

I stayed one night here on Feb 27th. The hotel is surrounded by white walls all around and has a nice tranquil and relaxing pool area. If you have ever visited Pnom Penh, you know how important and difficult it is to get peace and quiet. But, this hotel delivered. My room was nice and quiet. It was also very... More

Went to circa 51 for lunch and swimming in their pool. They don't charge for the pool and it is nice and shady, perfect for the hot season in Phnom Penh. The place is kid friendly as the owners have kids... There is a nice dog, several turtles and plenty of fish... The menu is a mix of Khmer, Western... More

We stayed at Circa 51 for 3 nights and liked it so much we went back after our trip to Kep. A high white wall faces on to bustling streets 51 and 222 but once you go through the gate into the shady grounds with the open bar and reception area and pool you are in a calm welcoming oasis.... More

Having spent nearly 2 days in airports and planes en route to my first visit to Cambodia, the airport pickup and ability to crash into the pool and bed on arrival at Circa51 was most welcome. As someone who likes to explore on foot, I found the location great - and there's always a tuktuk outside for those who prefer... More

My sister and I stayed here on our last night in Cambodia after a whirlwind backpacking trip. The stylish 1960s villa is perfect - clean, beautiful, and relaxing. After an exhausting day navigating Phnom Penh, nothing beats jumping into Circa 51's pristine pool and then relaxing under the Banyan tree, soaking in the calming vibes of the place and reflecting...

The airport collection was great and journey to the hotel as swift as could be! Check in was smooth and our room was large, overlooking the pool with an outdoor seating area. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The Owner was more than helpful and advised and helped us arrange transport to Siem Reap at one of... More
