It's a friendly spot. Yes, there is a 24 hour bar and restaurant on the main floor. It can be a bit raucous at times! But it's also a popular meeting place. For singles or couples? Relax and enjoy. Mick and the staff will do their best to accommodate you.

Sundance Riverside - formerly California-2 - is a Phnem Penh institution. The bar downstairs is an excellent starting point if you're new in town, for travelers and expats alike. The bar staff are friendly and playful, and the crowd of drinkers are eclectic - it makes an excellent first stop if you are travelling alone. The rooms are clean and... More

Goods: good location, working air conditioning, hot water, nice staff. Bads: very noisy, we were escaping from our room every morning from the drilling on the top of the building, poor wifi connection, regular bar at the first floor, where people heavily smoke, small portion breakfast.

Firstly, thank you for your comments and feedback, we are currently building 4 more rooms on the top floor and I understand the noise problem, and we apologize for that. The building work will be finished at the end of January 2016, so this will not be an issue anymore. More

The hotel has its advantages and disadvantages. The main pluses: very good location, helpful staff and nice bar with darts and pool. Main minuses: quite dirty rooms, towels smelled bad, the air everywhere in the hotel is horrible, the wifi was not working at our floor (2nd) and there was a terrible noise from construction works everyday starting from 8...

This could be the perfect place for you or the worst place for you depending on your sensibilities and feelings regarding the sex trade. If you are okay watching old (and young) white men bid farewell to the bar girls they brought home last night while you're eating breakfast, then this place could be great. If not, do NOT stay...

Firstly thank you for the great comments about our Hotel, but let me state that we as a hotel have a lot of expats who stay with us on a regular basis and bring there wives or girlfriends with them and as for the mirrors in the rooms, well what can I say, we have rooms with mirrors in, like...

Stayed here for 13 nights last month. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Great value for money. Good location, within walking distance or short tuk tuk ride to my favourite places. Food very tasty, comfortable room. Owner Mick is a top bloke and his staff always friendly and attentive. Will defiantly stay here again on my next trip.

Convenient for the bus station, good pool table and cold beer, sadly not as good as its counterpart the Sundance Inn. As per other reviews, the lack of a window lets it down. For a 'new' guesthouse it is rather tired looking. Wifi didn't work in the room.

Theres a bit of construction going on along the riverside especially around (well across & above) sundance. The banging starts around 7am & is pretty consistent throughout the day. The rooms are average size (for this price point) , beds are like a futon which is great if you're into it. I probably won't stay herecagain but it is grest... More

I chose to stay at SRH based on some of the previous reviews. Having traveled to many parts of the world and had many varied experiences, 2 places standout for me and SRH is one of them.
