Really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed for a total of 8 nights! The room was very clean, as was the bathroom. We had an excellent room with a flash balcony! Good value for money- double was 15usd per night. Nice breakfasts downstairs. Good aircon!

The "Smiley" was my home for 7 days while I waited for a Thai visa back in 2011. I felt like a king, having this big double bed, TV and aircon for 10 USD at the time. I was in a third floor, right in the corner, with windows looking everywhere. My bed was made two times per day, the... More

Loved our stay at Smiley's. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Owned by a Cambodian family, so we had to be a bit patient with the language barrier, but what else would you expect? :) They were helpful with arranging tuk tuks to local places and buses to other places in the country. Room was spotless -- very clean. Simple,... More

The Smiley Hotel is very nice - in the middle of Phnom Penh. Yes, it is not near the river - but i liked it for beeing a bit "next to the main drag" where it is a bit more quiet - but still has a lot of options for Restaurants around. The Staff is really friendly and helpful and... More

We had to stay here as we had a problem late at night in a hostel over the road (Narins) so little choice. We looked at a double room with a/c and it looked great, big sized room, fridge, television, ensuite bathroom and a balcony looking over the road infront. I think we paid about $20 a night for the...

My wife and I always stay here when visiting Phnom Penh. The rooms are nice and clean (all include cable TV, fridge, hot shower and free wi-fi) and the staff are friendly and helpful. The only down side is it's a bit far away from the usual "touristy" destinations (with the exception of Orussey Market, which is less than ten... More

if you are looking for a clean, cheap hotel/ guesthouse, this is a good bet. for $15, you get a decent sized, clean room with a/c and a balcony. if you want more space, its $20. you can also get a $10 room with fan for those on a budget. rooms is surprisingly clean and bed is really comfy for...

I can't even begin to explain the amount of hassle this hotel ended up giving us for such a short period time. This was my boyfriends and my first time to Phnom Penh and arrived at the hotel late at night. The room was nice, large and with a balcony, which for $20 between two of us was ok, although... More

We stayed at smiley all 3 times we were in Phnom Penh because we knew what we'd get: decent price, good room, friendly staff. $20 for a decent sized room that is clean with air con is a hood enough deal in Phnom Penh. The only downside is the location as most tuk-tuk drivers don't know the street and it... More

We had there a room for two nights, absolutely o.k. I think you wont get better value for money in PP. The area around is "local" this means its not like close to the river or in the "golden area" full of tourists and tourist restaurants - this gives you the chance to have local contacts also. Anyhow to move... More
