If you're looking for a cheap stay and good location, this is definitely a good option. However, don't expect any service from this hotel. The owner (or manager) seemed friendly and helpful, he offered to change a bigger room for us instead of the original we booked, but he did not seem to know that we had booked a room... More

Once i get into the room, there was a strong musty, seems like no one has been cleaning it for a long period. There was not tissue paper in the room nor in the toilet, no mineral water in room as well. The people especially the manager was not friendly and very rude to us.

Pros: The owner (older male) was very nice and helped us get a tuk-tuk in the morning. Cons: See below. I hate to write bad reviews, but this is one that needs to be written. In our travels across SE Asia, for over 6 weeks this was the worst hotel that we stayed at. I would consider this a backpacker... More

We stayed at "Golden river palace guesthouse" in march 2014. We can recommend "Golden river palace guesthouse", mainly because its very good location but also cheap price and good service. clean rooms with basic standard, AC, TV and fridge.

I stayed here for four nights during my visit in Phnom Penh. I stayed in a two-bed dorm which I paid $5 per night for. I think that's very good value regarding the standard and location. I shared the room with nice people, who I also hung out with during my time in the city. The staff is friendly and... More

Very clean and quiet. Everything's working from hot water to fridge, air-con, tv, wifi plus location is very central; short walking distance to the national museum, the night market, the Mekong etc. Friendly staff as well. Will come back !

Good starting point to visit the city, at walking distance from the royal palace, the national museum and the central market. 500 meters from the riverside and very close to the nightclubs area too. Our room was clean but unfortunately without windows.

I booked a room online only to arrive and find the door was made of clear glass and there was no curtain! The bathroom was really dirty as well so I asked for a refund but the manager wasn't interested as he already had my money. Terrible, and not what I needed after a 7 hour bus journey. Found a...

Did not you stay in my dormitory room because of my room or Tuk Tuk driver? You cheated TUK TUK driver by not paying him any money. You stated that agoda advertising that our hotel offered free pick up. WHERE? Agoda and I myself clarify again and again that we don't provide free pick up. Dormitory bed costs you only... More

The location, the staff and the space of the room are ok, but the rest...... The carpet in the room looks dirty, little carpets up on, to hide what? The 2 beds of room 201 were made up strange, the sheets looked like when you protect something from dust. So no decent made up beds. The shabby curtains hide a... More
