Located within a few minutes from the centre of town and numerous markets, this hotel is beautiful inside and out, the pools are tranquil and the rooms are wonderfully decorated. Service is immaculate and the buffet breakfast was possibly the nicest breakfast I've ever eaten - so much choice. Bar a little pricey however.

this hotel provides a good place to stay during a business trip, as it provides the necessary comfort, which helps to relax after a stressfull day at work. The staff is friendly and very helpful. It also provides a good place to experience the city after work or simply enjoy a good dinner in one of the restaurants.

Absolutely wonderful hotel - unforgettable experience. Cambodia offers consistently good value for money. I knew this was true for the low and mid-range, but I now also know it is true for the high end. The inner courtyard of this hotel are so incredibly beautiful. The whole building just breathes authenticity and style. The rooms are not particularly large, but... More

This was a Very Good (rating) hotel and we were pleased to have stayed here. As others have said, it has charm and is not impersonal. Facilities and amenities were not as one might expect in a more modern western hotel but this was fine as a tour-based hotel

I stayed here with my wife and 3 young children aged 4, 7 and 10. The hotel has a mix of nostoulgic, French colonial architecture with all modern facilities and exceptional service that you would expect from a Raffles hotel. Phnom Penh (the capital) is often overlooked as a travel stop (as opposed to the more popular Siem Reap), unless... More

A beautiful classic colonial hotel, with a lot of atmosphere. The service is excellent and the food in the gourmet restaurant is great ( try the Jacky Kennedy menus). If you don't want to spend the money to stay there, at least eat in the restaurant or just have a drink in the bar.

This is THE hotel in Phnom Penh. There are others newer which appear to have all the bells and whistles but nothing in Phnom Penh is as classy as Le Royal.
