We have stayed in many raffles hotels which have all been amazing but this particular hotel needs to up its game. Our room smelt damp and as a consequence it made other things in the room feel damp as well eg bedding our clothing etc even a left out postcard curled up at the sides. On a positive the location...

Built in 1929 and host to Jackie, Somerset and André Malraux the Le Royal is an antidote to all those chain hotels we are forced to stay in. Start with a drink in the Elephant Bar, then the Writers Bar then to the most beautiful restaurant in Asia and don't forget the two huge pools. The staff are exceptional, the... More

Old world charm. Really great staff that are so helpful. The French restaurant last night was an unexpected delight. Did the 5 course French tasting menu...each course was much larger than we expected and the quality was excellent. Same with breakfast..huge selection of hot and cold dishes. I loved the fruit selection and we both thought the coffee was excellent

Raffles Hotel Le Royal has been and remains an iconic establishment in Phnom Penh ever since it was established in 1929. Today it provides the best of both worlds: elegance from the past with all necessary modernity and a staff unmatched for service.

This hotel is worth every penny! The colonial setting is the perfect environment to enjoy the superb hospitality of the Raffles staff. Their pool is in the middle of the two buildings and is great, frozen in time and not a care in the world. Outstanding breakfast service, great environment, can sit on the patio! The staff and their service... More

The old-school charm of this hotel is wonderful - great centrepieces, high ceilings, white-suited helpers everywhere and that distinct colonial feel that only comes from former empire states. The elephant bar is spot on, and service was generally excellent. But... this hotel would struggle to stay full in a more competitive city, the rattling aircon was loud and the pool... More

Stayed in this hotel about 2 years ago and it was amazing. Décor is very old style making you feel like you have stepped back in time but there is such a charm about the hotel.

Everything was top notch, great service in a fantastic atmosphere. We ate at the cafe and the restaurant... Both faultless. Cocktails at the Elephant bar is a must, best Singapore slings outside Singapore!
