This hotel is great location within 10 minutes walk to the main area. The room is not really clean but it is ok for short stay, staff are friendly and many tuk tuk drivers outside asking for city tours. I always take a walk seem very close to night market and river.

If you want a good experience at this hotel, make sure to arrive before 3pm and talk with the young female receptionist. Her english is very good and she's fair and always smiling. If you have any issues with the staff later in the evening, talk with her in the morning and she'll fix you up. Haggle the price based... More

With all the good guesthouses full and a torrential downpour outside, we ended up here. After three months of travel, it didn't seem too bad for $15. Within 30 minutes of check in, there was an electric fire and the entire place lost electricity. My husband was nervous about staying but they assured him everything was fixed. The next day,...

Unhelpful money grabbing staff! First room we looked at was spacious but VERY loud with music and noise from the street. Second room was small but adequate but STANK ... and i mean really stank... of smoke. It was unbearable. Much nicer places to stay, shop around online before you arrive as Phnom Penh can be a tricky one.

I was a customer of this hotel for now 3 years. Good feeling and correct prices. But... But now, the same owner open another luxurious hotel - in fact, it's a fake with unfinished rooms, but the entrance is beautifull... - and everything collapse in this hotel. No more smiles, coffee for 2$ ( it was 1$ and it was... More

Lovely staff who couldn'd do enough for us. Rooms very spacious and clean, with aircon. Only stayed 2 nights so don't know if rooms cleaned daily, but we had clean towels each day. Lovely big balcony. Would recommend this hotel as it wasn't expensive.

Wandered in there when other places were full and only stayed because everywhere else was full or too expensive... my advice is keep looking - anywhere else is better than this. Rooms in terrible condition with walls dirty and moldy ceilings. Bed linen stained and dirty along with towels. First room the shower wasn't working nor the airconditioning fan. The... More

After arriving in Phnom Penh by bus at around 6.00pm we went around a few different places by tuktuk to try and find accommodation just for one night, we finally got bored of looking and ended up staying here. It wasn't too bad, although the room was very small and decor could do with a freshen up. The place had... More

I arrived there because the guest house I was going to was full. Finally I found this hotel great and stayed 5 days.
