Stayed for three nights and the best experience in Cambodia, I tell you. Riverside balcony with spectacular view to the river. Excellent elevator! Illy tea on breakfest. Stuff was so helpfull that they even guided us to gorgeus swiming pool for free. Tuktuk drivers located at entrance provided us with excellent weed. Don't mentioned a number of buetiful woman who...

By far one of the friendliest and sincere staff I have experienced in quite some time. Nearly all of the people working there were super friendly and helpful -from the manager down to the cleaning lady. Rooms were ok, a bit pricy; I paid 30usd (discounted from 35usd) for a river view - but I was staying there near the... More

We wereshownphotos of a hotel with a pool! On arrival late at night after a look at several rooms with mouldy walls, a large cockroach was the final straw. Safety deposit boxes were hanging off the walls at the front desk. Prostitution was blatant and we were not impressed enough by the location to excuse the above. THIS IS NOT... More

There were rats in the walls, I could hear them scratching and moving around at night. Once a huge rat come out in the early AM and stared at me before scurrying back under the bed. Room was shabby, smelly and the furniture and TV badly outdated. The only two good things about this hotel for me were its location... More

Centrally located with great views of the river, the hotel needs some renovations. It's the equivalent to an old 3 star hotel. Staff is very friendly. It seems to cater mostly to an older male clientele. Free wifi works well, and the included breakfast is decent.

Visited a windowless room and needed to run out of the room to catch my breath. There was mold all over the main room's ceiling and wall. I did not examine the bathroom in detail, but would assume it has the same problem. Everything else seemed kind of all right, just a bit worn-down, with the room quite large and... More

The River Star hotel was the fourth hotel I tried in my first four days in Phnom pehn. I didnt feel safe at the first three and I had a bad feeling about them. The River Star has a great location therefore easy to find if I got lost. The prices were reasonable, the rooms were large and clean. The... More

You may soon realize what a tough question where is a good hotel in harmony with a wide room, great river view and needless to say, elevateur facility in Phnom Penh. The fact is that most of the modern mini hotels there offer you a room no more than 20m2 sq because of the restriction by the building structure. there... More
