My partner and I stayed here while visiting from Australia. Small, family run business giving a very homely feel. Used to be a residence of some very important people, hence built up as a house with high walls and big main gate. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast daily by the pool a great start to the day.
We stayed in the room upstairs facing the main road (St 51) and the pool. Unfortunately during our visit our bathroom had no hot water. We let the staff know and they were prompt to address it, but due to renovations happening during the day time we didn't have hot water our entire stay. Not a big issue for us though so did not press further.
Location was along the busy St 51 but noise level was bearable. Great central location for tourists in Phnom Penh. 5-10 minutes by tuktuk to Riverfront, Museum, Russian Market, Independence Monument and Naga World. Walkable to Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda. Supermarket round the corner and plenty of street food within 5-10 minutes walk.
Even had a resident friendly dog (Maxie) and cat (Meow Meow) that added to the whole family residence feel. Great place to stay for a cosy warm friendly feel. If looking for a hotel or resort type of accommodation, this is not for you.
