The first hotel in PP I've stayed at that was mostly European/Australian/UK etc guests. Great breakfast and tables are close together, so people chat which is pleasant. It's laid back and more casual, rooms can have kitchens. Comfortable beds. Relaxed rather than staff running around after you. Not for highly strung travellers, good for those wanting to do their own... More

Awesome location of the hotel on 294 street right behind the independent monument. Spacious rooms with a/c and free wifi. Staff members were really friendly. Traveled with my friends and they were surprised with the breakfast but we just nodded our head and started look for a better breakfast restaurant. I think it would be better to lower the price...

We stayed at this hotel for one night because we made a mistake and we booked two nights before than the actual arrival day. None of it was refunded and we needed to pay another night. Of course we understood this since it was or mistake. After all the talking we decided to stay there and take a swim, later... More

Thank you for your review, and I apologise for your experience at the swimming pool. Occasionally our hotel like every hotel in Phnom Penh experience issues with vermin, Cambodia being an emerging country does not have the same garbage collection ability that western countries especially have and as a result we at times need to deal with vermin.

The reason we chose Villa Salt was the high rating here in trip advisor. Honestly we were so surprised of the low level of service - especially the low quality of breakfast. We were traveling throughout Asia for 5 weeks and we have stayed in much better Hotels with much, much better service, facilities and breakfast. The highlight: a rat... More

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.

Great family room with small kitchenette, great living room with cosy couch and very spacious, double bedroom and 2 separate bathrooms.
