Was pleased to have picked Villa Salt on our last stay in Phnom Penh last week. The rooms are good, the location is prime and the rest is absolutely good value for money but the experience ruined by staff who just don't seem to care much about guests. We arrived at 5pm to the hotel after being out the afternoon... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days in April 2015. The staff were very obliging and friendly. They organised a taxi pickup and return to the airport for us which was great. The breakfast was lovely and served in an outdoor area near the pool. Our room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable.Tuk Tuks are available out front... More

We stayed 3 nights in a very comfortable family suite. The included breakfast was excellent. You walk through the entrance into a secluded area with greenery that is a nice area to relax away from the noise. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend to friends.

We stayed here 4 nights with family of 5. Perfectly located for visiting Phnom Penh. Great family room with small kitchenette, great living room with cosy couch and very spacious, double bedroom and 2 separate bathrooms. TukTuk & good restaurants at the doorstep making trips into the city very easy. (Try restaurant 'the lost room') Breakfast with 3 choices: continental,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in feb. The room was clean and tastefully furnished, spacious and well serviced. Greeted with a cool drink on arrival and smiling khmer staff. We have enjoyed the breakfast and the selection to choose from. Would stay again and highly recommend.

Really appreciated the helpful front desk staff Ms. Voleak. Lovely property! Would recommend for leisure or business travel. Convenient location and relatively quiet, an easy walk to all the amenities.

A great, peaceful stay in one of the apartments. The rooms were large, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was good and staff friendly and efficient. The pool was small and too cold for us to use but the weather was unusually cool during our stay. It was only a 2 minute ride to the palace and 10 minutes to... More

This place is gorgeous. The location is amazing. It's on a street in a super central location but it's still quiet. The pool is so relaxing, and the rooms as luxurious. Plus the staff is amazing! The receptionist offered us a home cooked free dinner and cake for a party of four because it was a birthday. I couldn't believe... More

The GM lady from NZ and her staffs are concerned about their patrons satisfaction. The hotel is new, less than 2 years, and has large room with good equipment. The location is excellent, near the business district and in the expat area. The only thing I am regretting is that they do not serve jam with the toast and butter... More

A quiet boutique hotel, in Phnom Penh. If you are looking for all the amenities of major hotels, then keep looking. If you want personable staff, a great location, and wonderful rooms that are quiet and decent, then this is your place. Away Salt, is close to all that a traveller is looking for in Phnom Penh. The Palace is... More
