I stayed at the Cheeky Monkey for 5 weeks whilst working in Phnom Penh and it was fantastic, it honestly felt like a home away from home. It's the perfect place to stay for a long term stay as you have all the facilities you need (laundry, kitchen, wifi, aircon, tv) with breakfast included at a very affordable price. Erica and Steve the lovely couple who run the guesthouse are so friendly and always happy to answer any questions or help organise any travelling out of phnom penh with bus tickets or getting visas extended ect. They speak perfect english as they are from England and America and can always point you in the right direction of places to go and things to see in Phnom Penh.
The guesthouse itself is in a small residential street so is very quiet. The rooms are big and have comfortable beds (queen and king size beds) and 2 of the rooms have ensuites. They have only recently started the guesthouse so everything is new. It is very clean and they have a lovely cleaning lady who cleans everyday and will do your laundry for a very cheap price. As it only has 3 rooms and they are trying to appeal to long term guests you get to know everyone staying there and therefore I felt very safe and at home.
It is in a lovely area (don't be fooled by the government housing just up the road) and there are lots of lovely restaurants in walking distance or a short tuk tuk ride away.
I highly recommend this place especially if staying for longer than a week.
