I stayed at the NagaWord Hotel for a few nights while in Cambodia. The first thing I noticed is that the hotel had a pretty nice lobby and the staff was friendly enough. The rooms are are nice, modern, and the A/C works really well which is a good thing. They include a flat screen tv, refrigerator, bowl sinks, and two complimentary bottles of water per day. I noticed that the television channel selection for a foreign hotel was quite good.
My room needed a little TLC in the bathroom, but overall it was fine. The biggest problem I had was all of my showers, with the exception of one, was cold. I don't know why. I was part of a larger group and they did not have any problems. Also, there was a water leak in the hallway above the room door adjacent to mine. As a result, I saw constant dripping for the first few days. At some point, they must have found the problem because the leak stopped but I heard loud banging in the area above my room for the last few days beginning at around 7 am. It would last for several hours.
The hotel has several restaurants within it which is convenient. We tried Indochine and it was fine. The hotel does not have a fitness center, but it does offer free wi-fi in the lobby. The wi-fi is a little sporadic but it's better than nothing. The cost for a room is good which offers a great value.
Finally, the hotel is located in a pretty decent area. It is not too far from historical sites in the area. You can take a tuk tuk from the hotel to most spots within the city for $2-3 US. The drivers may try to trick you into paying more, but that is the going rate. I recommend telling them what you'll pay before getting in. If they say no, just walk away and they will either agree to the price or you can approach another driver nearby.
Overall, I would recommed the hotel to others traveling to the area. With the exception of the cold showers my stay was pretty good.
FYI - US dollars are accepted everywhere in the city so you do not need to exchange currency. If you want to go shopping, I recommend the Central Market. It is much bigger and cleaner than the Russian Market. They pretty much have the same stuff for the same prices.
