Location of hotel is great. Walking diatance from Royal Palace, National Museum, riverside, Phnom Penh night market, on lum pagoda. Street 172, a parallel one, has many bars open till late night. Riverside is also great in evenings. Hotel rooms are average, not impressed with them. No lift in hotel so ask for room on level 1 (one above ground).... More

Very close to the riverfront, the only decent party area of town. The rooms are fairly large, but roaches abound in most of them, just bring some bug spray. The staff are fairly accommodating and speak English. Be wary of cab drivers, if you're traveling along, just hop on the back of a motorbike for $2 and they'll take you... More

We stayed here in early May 2014 and we enjoyed our time here. The location was great, the room comfortable and the staff helpful. Breakfast was adequate and all in all we enjoyed our time here. They don't have a lift though so lots of stairs...but it keeps you nice and fit.

My room faces a glittering complex of the Royal Palace and the National Museum. The hotel is a minute walk to the river front on the left, and the famous Friends Tapas on the right block. In the evening you can just walk to the back side and enjoy the roasted "molusk" (hmm.. I dont know the English term for... More

Stayed at the Diamond Palace II hotel for 2 nights. The service at the front desk can be a bit hit and miss, depending on the staff at the desk. When we arrived several of the hotel staff offered to carry our bags up the steep staircase, no matter what I said they very kindly insisted. We were traveling as... More

Diamond Palace 2 has a marvellous location overlooking the National Museum & Park. Very handy for Royal Palace, Riverside etc. Superior rooms have balconys above the street giving great view of everyday life outside. Nice clean rooms with AC & breakfast included. However when I returned fo the hotel from a 2-day beach trip they charged me $5 per night... More

Room was just what we needed - clean, ac, en suite and fridge etc. Breakfast was included and had a... More

In retrospect,nothing particularly outstanding about this hotel, staff were quite helpful,rooms were clean albeit and little small(but still more than comfortable) and the location is good. However, there's nothing much i can complain about as well. At USD$20 per night for an air conditioned room with heater and wifi,it's decent but you can definitely get a cheaper hotel of the... More

Great location for a hotel. The room was small but we knew this before agreeing to stay. AC and clean bathroom and fridge were great. Bed was not bad either. We had breakfast included and I would recommend the local dishes as the western fare is not that good. Did the job and you can't say more for $20 a... More
