If I had to come back to this city, I wouldn't stay here. The room was OK - it had a small fridge and ac - but didn't have any windows. And the guesthouse just didn't seem very welcoming, or busy. The bar downstairs is a bit sleazy, but maybe that's the norm for phnom penh, especially near the river. We booked in bc we saw it had really good ratings on trip advisor, and while the stay wasn't exactly terrible, if we had a do-over I would look elsewhere.
