Not much room to put your stuff... A stale smell to everything. Rather basic room, I will not be visiting again. The staff was OK but not particularily helpful.. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the center of town, so it has that going for it I guess

I went there with my family during winter break. The staffs were very friendly and helpful and the food was simply amazing, especially the Chicken Josper one. There was also a standby tuk tuk where my family could travel around the city with ease. With these incredible experiences, we will definitely visit here again on our next trip.

Sadly since my last visit here just over a year ago the situation at the Cara has continued to deteriorate. Of the nine hotels I stayed at during my recent two months stay in Cambodia this was next to the worst and while last year I rated it as average this time what I found here was poor - at... More

A return to Cambodia after quite a few years absence. This was my first port of call and I left in a hurry. The architects brief when the place was built quite a few years ago was very obviously to pack the maximum units into a minimum of space. So a small lift, one staircase, very narrow corridors, small rooms... More

If your requirement is to have a clean room for an okay price this is right for you. It is well located and Tuc Tuc are always available. The staff is very friendly and always trying to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

I stayed there right at the end of September. This was my first trip to Cambodia. Hotel Cara's staff are quite friendly, the rooms are affordable and really nice. The food was really good too. It is a bit of a way outside the city center, which is fine if you want a peaceful getaway. Overall, good value for money.

Stayed here on our first visit a couple of year ago and revisited it again. The hotel has a nice frontage on the main road and rooms facing the front can be a bit noisy. Rooms are basic but clean. Not much of a neighbourhood to explore and taking a tuk-tuk is recommended. Breakfast is good and staff are courteous... More

Stayed at the Cara Hotel during my first trip to Cambodia. The room was somewhat basic but very clean. The staff were, without exception, very polite and respectful and all spoke good English. Located on a busy made road made travelling by tuk-tuk easy. Only two mins away from the river.
