This is a small family-run hotel, with a friendly service, at a reasonable cost, and well located. There is a choice of rooms (I've stayed, during my dfferent stop-overs, in five different "categories"), at different prices. They are all tastefully arranged, though some are rather dark. It's a smallish hotel with a pleasant inner courtyard and a swimming pool, but... More

Circa 51 was the best hotel experience we had while we were in Pp this time. I have been living in PP for a while and was back visiting with my parents, they stayed there and were so happy I think they are organising a trip back. The staff and owners are so friendly and make you feel so at... More

Circa 51 was the first hotel we stayed in in Cambodia, and I have to say we were disappointed, as we stayed in many more which were cheaper and much better quality. On the plus side the swimming pool was lovely and very well cared for, our bathroom was good and the girls behind reception and the bar were lovely... More

I stayed here 2 nights and found it to be such a great little hotel. I was luckily upgraded to the larger room which was brilliant. Nice to have some space after bustling throught the city streets. A quick dip in the pool after a long day in the heat was great. The breakfast was also very good. Good location... More

Great service especially from the woman at the front desk, she was always ready and eager to help and her English was very good. Rooms are spacious and firm bed (good for me), hot shower, and fridge. The safe isn't really a safe and was just a wooden box in a cabinet but that didn't bother me. There were a... More

The location was good, close to the riverfront (10 mins walk) but far enough to be quieter. The lobby is a bit confusing - it looks a bit run down BUT the room was great, the staff were super nice and breakfast was made to order. We had been travelling in Cambodia for two weeks, and a small thing I... More

We booked our room at Circa 51 at the dock when we arrived in Phnom Penh after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel was a little hard to find, but once we arrived, we were very pleased to walk inside the walls and find a peaceful little hotel in the middle of the city. We were first... More

I should start off positive by saying that my room was broadly ok and all of the staff I encountered were helpful and nice. The hotel wasn't easy to find due to lack of signage and first impressions weren't great on entry. It just looks a bit scruffy as you go in and had a dirty aura about it, as... More

We booked Circa 51 based on the positive reviews in TA, we were not disappointed. The large pool under the Bunyan tree was great for a middle of the day swim. Location was great, within easy walking distance to the Palace and National Museum. We were in Room 1 which was a little dark in the middle of the day,... More
