A bit outside of the city center, located near Wat Phnom, is this very nice hotel. Rooms are modern, clean and offer all services you want. The breakfast is magnificent in the bar 'doors' next to the hotel. It was the nicest breakfast we had on our trip of weeks! Wireless internet is not so good, but hey, what do... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The reception staff, friendly and helpful. It seemed a fair way from places of interest. The streets around weren't the sort of place you would happily wander around at night. We were disconcerted on our first night when we were woken at 1 am from a couple of drunken loud people who continued on... More

Hotel is comfortable and clean and the staff are very helpful.Doors restaurant,run by a Barcelona chef,is excellent - great tapas menu.Disappointing that no chair in the room to use on the balcony,only a small stool.Deluxe balcony category of room is nothing out of the ordinary but certainly comfortable.

New nice hotel with a good restaurant there, for the time being run by a team of Spaniards. We have eaten there with old and new quite tasty. Perhaps the rooms are a bit noisy, but that does not compensate for the huge uproar in the very tourist area on the river side, which you also agree to pay at... More

What is great about this hotel is the friendly staff, clean rooms and the attached Doors restaurant for excellent dining. We can't comment on the price value ratio as it was part of a package. They have rooms without a window but we stayed in the deluxe balcony type.

Upon arrival nothing was explained correctly, staff had trouble understanding our questions. Rooms were ok but phone did not work and safe was locked and when asked for assistance no one came. Not sure if they were short staffed due to New Year. Upon leaving staff were more helpful. It is away from the main strip, best to just grab... More

The review of 'tripdogg' was completely right. BUT, i liked it. Good bed and shower, stylish, nice bar and restaurant part of it. It was the best of our trip of three weeks in Laos so far. If its on a good price, take it.

Cara Hotel is a nice modern budget hotel, located not too far from the city, yet away from the traffic and noise. There are a few bars around, but double glazed windows keep the noise away. Rooms are not too big, but nice, small fridge, small tv, good channel selection. Nice shower, rooms cleaned daily. Loved the speaking birds, my... More

The Hotel Cara, although not on a scenic road, was my home for 5 days. The staff were everso pleasant and friendly. The attached restaurant Doors provided an excellent breakfast with some beautiful Cambodian smiles. Rooms were basic but acceptable and I would not hesitate in staying there again.
