Stayed for 3 nights during our long tour of South East Asia. Was pleasantly surprised when the gate rolled back from the outside street. Yes, there are buildings and building work going on around the hotel but its in the city so that is expected. We stayed on the top floor and we knew there weren't lifts or phones but it wasnt a problem. If you have mobility or fitness issues then opt for a low floor or find another hotel. Its not rocket science!
The pool was very clean and we enjoyed the chance to cool off and relax in the delightful poolside cabanas.
The rooms were clean and spacious with A/C and ceiling fan. We used the laundry service which was quick and very cheap. How do you get your washing to smell so nice?
We ate every night at the hotel, which was reasonably priced and the service was excellent. The quality of the food and choice was really very good too. The Khmer set meal for 2 was delicious and well worth trying. Treatments and massages etc are very cheap.
Would come back to this hotel again.
