We stayed here over Khmer New Year. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and the feeling of history. There is something so special about the hotel. The history, the past guests, the tragedies of Cambodia - all are subtly felt! Phnom Penh is a tough city to be in but coming back to this piece of paradise, after visiting the killing... More

Raffles Pnomh Penh is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. No other hotel matches their standard of service. All the staff remembered our names and went out of their way to be helpful. Highly recommended.

Raffles Le Royal is a wonderful experience, as long as you don't come expecting a slightly Frenchified version of Raffles in Singapore. It has its own heritage and atmosphere, and having survived Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge is entitled to be a little quieter, and a little more worn at the edges than its flashier cousin in Singapore. It... More

We stayed for two nights in a Landmark Pool room in the old part of the hotel, so lovely large traditional rooms with high ceilings, accessed from a traditional tiled corridor with interesting furnishings. A lovely bathroom too with a large roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle. Whilst we did not use the butler service on offer, it... More

We stayed at the Raffles both in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap over the Christmas and New Year period and have to say they were both excellent. While not always savvy to the details of true five star service you find elsewhere, the Cambodian staff were always extremely helpful and polite and very generous with greetings and smiles. I must...

Check in takes place in the lounge with a welcome drink. We were upgraded to a room with a butler. Really? The room was small compared to other hotels that we had stayed in along the way. Only 1 small arm chair to watch TV. There was a desk with high back chair so we had to use that. In... More

Cambodians are generally a happy and polite people, especially around the Cambodian New Year period. We stayed two nights at this hotel. The front facade oozes French Colonial Indo-Chinese atmosphere and the amenities inside are luxurious and pleasing to the eye. This hotel is less pricey than its Siem Reap cousin, and perhaps a little more guest friendly. We arrived... More
