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

We travelled with another couple and stayed at Raffles for 3 nights. This is a fantastic hotel, full of charm and grandeur and history. The service is impeccable, the suites magnificent and the breakfast buffet, fantastic! I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

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.

Lovely Colonial oasis in Phnom Penn - beautiful and well maintained hotel and gardens. Very attentive staff all in extremely stylish uniforms provide a calm and stylish atmosphere. Great breakfast but meals and drinks in the Elephant Bar less successful. Food took a long time to appear and the wine seemed extremely expensive - much cheaper to drink cocktails. On... More

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. The staff are uber helpful without being cloyingly so. The building itself oozes history and the rooms are impeccable. We stayed 5 nights - one night in the Jacqueline... More

After a long dusty bus journey form the south coast of Cambodia we arrived at Raffles. What a fantastic hotel, the rooms and facilities were of the highest standard, just what we needed to help us to relax.

Perfect for our stay in Cambodia for Honeymoon, simply excellent. Service is superb and everything was over our expectation. Very well communicated even if you want to take a tuk tuk :) We will sure come back if we visit Cambodia again.
