“if you want to feel at home then this is the best place hands down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2009

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.

We made a reservation by email, but when we got there we were greeted by a very surly staff woman who said they were full. When we insisted that we had a reservation, she called her manager over - who was even more short tempered and dismissive - who said they didn't have any reservations and all the a/c rooms were full. However, they could give us a fan room for $15. So she led us through the "lobby", so cluttered with old furniture, boxes and random crap that you could barely walk (maybe it was spring cleaning?, up to the top floor. There we were given two options. One reasonably sized but very smelly room with four bare concrete walls and no windows, or one with a window opening to the hallway, smaller and equally smelly but at least with the promise of some fresh air - even if this meant no privacy from the hallway. However, after 15 minutes in the room, we realised the smell wasnt going away, the beds were lumpy, the sheets stained, and pretty much everything was dirty. And we were expected to pay 15 bucks for this? So we walked out and headed to the Hope and Anchor - for $5 more it was ten times the quality, twenty times better service, and a better location (don't think that being away from the river means Last Home would be quieter, its not.

I stayed at Last Home for a month and a half of my time in Phnom Penh. I chose it for the reasonable long-term discount that I was able to work out over the phone with the manager. It's location is good for those who don't like the hustle and bustle on the riverfront. I ate most of my meals at the restaurant on the bottom floor because the food was delicious. The manager and her family make up a majority of the staff and they are very trustworthy. I found that I could always ask them for help if I ever needed anything. They helped with SIM cards, visa extensions, and bus transportation.
My room was on the second floor and the bathroom had a good-sized open air hole in the wall. The ceiling was peeling due to water damage and the shower head had no cradle. The manager did offer to put a cradle in the wall. Although the bathroom had hot water, the water pressure in my bathroom was nil. Also, when the weather was hot, the bathroom stunk of sewage. The bedroom itself was nice and spacious. I had windows that faced the hallway. Water did tend to leak out from some unknown source along where the floor met the wall, but I'm not sure where this water came from. The manager tried her best to solve the stinky bathroom problem and look into the water leaking, but this seemed to be a problem in many of the rooms. The cheapest rooms had no ac and the more expensive rooms had fridges. I really liked the balconies on the 2nd and 3rd floor because they were calm places for reading and observing Phnom Penh life. The guest house gets filled up easily, so book ahead. I booked by phone a month in advance and confirmed a few days before arriving. Also, try to view the room before agreeing to stay in it, especially if you'll be there long-term. Overall, it's a reasonable accommodation for very reasonable prices.

Room [single, ensuite] clean: no problems; I think cable TV. But 1st floor balcony [with 'balcony service'] and downstairs restaraunt and outside patio comfy and private. Food: delicious. Seemingly family-run, the staff did everything for guests' comfort (e.g. visa-extension, Viet Nam visa, bus-arrangements). Small inhouse multi-lingual library. No internet, but slick cafe opposite. No pestering by beggars, but staff gave to monks daily. I've been South and Riverside in PP several times. Last Home was tops.

  • Liked — Ambience, quiet, service, food
  • Disliked — Road was being re-surfaced at the time: dusty
  • Stayed November 2007, traveled on business
