There were still ashes from previous smoking guests in the room. Also our bathroom was not cleaned and the staff didnt want to do... More

This hotel is a bit so so. The rooms look nice, but aren't very clean. Beds are good, wifi less. The people who run the hotel aren't nice and only help you when they're done with their phone. Location is off the centre so if you want to be near more restaurants and bars you should pick another hotel. We... More

Stayed here in Drc- Jan. Great place very clean and staff friendly. Don't really believe other feedbacks. I travel a lot and found this place in Phnom Penh to be very good. Don't know about the one in Siem Reap. I will go passed next time I am there to check it out.

Our stay here was a mixed bag. We had a $13 fan room which was average in terms of value for money. The bed was fine but the hot water shower was a bit below par. On the plus side, it is a quiet place to stay. The surrounding area is relatively peaceful. However, if you want to be closer... More

I should have known when i walked in to look for a room. the receptionist never looked up from her phone while handing a key.The rooms were quite all right though not amazing for 15$ so we came back later. When the wifi password on all floors didn't work -except for the hot, loud lobby-nobody at the reception including the... More

DO NOT book the mini bus to Sihanoukville for this hotel! If you value your life don't do it. It was the fastest and scariest experience of my life. The big busses are much better as they can't drive as fast. Down side is the drive takes longer but you arrive alive Other than that the hotel was great. Not... More

This place was not so cheap for us, 13 USD for a small room with a fan, and have just been told breakfast is not included, unlike everyone else it seems. They were adamant that they never include breakfast, despite then relenting and saying they did, but not for rooms with a fan, which seems somewhat ridiculous as it is... More

Phnom Penh is a noisy city but this hotel is at a pretty quiet but convenient location. It's not near the tourists' central but easy to access the Genocide Museum and many good restaurants nearby. Some of their staff speak very limited English and I was a bit frustrated. Unlike many other hotels in Phnom Penh, this hotel doesn't have... More
