t of the service is excellent. I noticed some other review where they complained about this. I don't know what their standards are and if they are looking for people taking a bow everytime they walk by. In that case this is not the place for you.
If you, on the other hand, want to be in a hotel ran by sophisticated local people that know phnom penh inside out and will give you the info without the tourist romance attached to it then this is a place for you.
The rooms are tidy, the food is excellent. 2 of my restaurant favorites are the fish amok and the lok lac. You can not afford to skip these 2 meals!
The hotel is a family business and it has been around for more then a decade. they moved location recently which was a major improvement. It is a short stroll to the river, market, royal palace, etc.
Another good thing is the fact that the hotel has a strong policy concerning solicitation by motor and tuk tuk drivers. They have a few motorists allowed to take guests out and they are sophisticated, speak fluent english and handle a fair price. The one i used is called Wan and he is perfect for any trip.
What people shouldn't forget is that this is phnom penh: things break here and it takes a while to get fixd, if ever.
Water pressure, sewerage smells, etc has nothng to do with any given hotel it is just a fact of phnom penh. I stayed in the phnom penh hotel for 2 days before moving to the last home and the smell and the water pressure were just as crappy as they were in the last home. The last home atmosphere however was just far superior. They live up to the name, you truly feel at home.
When you go to pp then this is the place to be. You got to call in advance because they do get booked up quick. Reason for this is the considerable amount of long stayers working for the phnom penh university, etc. that live in the hotel.
