Our usual lodgings in Phnom Penh are good, but a bit off the beaten path. Looking for something closer to the river and town, we found the Frangipani Royal Palace. There are several Frangipani properties in Phnom Penh, but this is the one closest to the river.
The hotel is across the street from the Royal Palace, and two blocks from the river. There are many small restaurants and boutique shops around the hotel, and a large pharmacy next door. There were always several tuk tuk drivers out front, so transportation was never a problem.
Our room was large, bright, and comfortable. The bathroom was also large and well appointed. A bit more light on the mirror would have made shaving less of an adventure, but that was the only (minor) issue. The balcony looked over the Palace and the river. The bed was very comfortable, and the air-conditioning was quiet and efficient - making for a great night's sleep.
The breakfast buffet offers a good selection, including an omelette/egg station. The dining room is bright and cheery, and the staff friendly and helpful.
All in all, it was a very pleasant stay.
