Cheap rooms for rent, short time or long time, aircon and hot water, good location for clubs pubs and food, The food is good, the beer is cold, But not for the faint hearted, many "taxi girls" ply their trade from the bar downstairs.

Very dirty pub with old prostitutes downstairs and disgusting rooms above. I guess the reason the cockroaches infest the rooms is to get away from the filth on the floor. Food is disgusting too. Check out their kitchen. The owners should be ashamed.

Very dirty looking old bar it attracts the foreign geriatrics living in Phnom Penh on $1000 a month or less. Along with that the girls that go there have passed there "use by" date. The staff are not trained especially for an expatriate clientele, the bar waiter spoke no English, and had no clue about the products offered by the... More

Stopped here for a drink whilst out walking. Waiter was shoulder on shoulder as soon as we arrived waiting for our drink order. Brought the drinks and even before they hit the table very aggressively,"You pay now" no customer service. We were well dressed I don't believe he thought we were going to run.just no customer skills

used to lie this place but badly in need of a spruce up. The staff are friendly but there are quite a few girls who are obviously in need of a good feed hanging around the place. 1 plus is ice cold ankor beer on draft

This place is dirty, disgusting, seedy and full of hookers. Left an hour after getting there. Didn't bother trying to get money back. We booked the Jacuzzi suite. The Jacuzzi was like a prison shower and the ambience of the room was somewhere between vomit and the soiled underwear of a prostitute.

This hotel is just not for everyone. It's worn out and ruined because of age and neglect - try the dirty stairways! The rooms are just rooms, period. The shower was blocked which caused flooding. The AC was on the brink and needed maintenance. There are much better hotels around the corner which will suit you and your fun evenings.... More

With the key(s) "safely" under staff supervision one evening my room was entered and thoroughly searched and my valuables (which I had hidden well out of the way) stolen. When reported, management failed to follow up, preferring made-up stories inculpating (innocent) girls in the bar as scapegoats, and displaying no real desire to confront problems of staff thieving. If you... More

Cheap and simple with silent rooms conveniently located in the middle of the nightlife district. You can eat and drink 24 hours. Free safety deposit boxes are at the reception area. Free WiFi in the rooms. But there is a big BUT: You should not feel disturbed by the freelance professionals hanging around at the ground floor bar. Hence, it... More
