I came for an academic conference, traveling alone and without much time for sightseeing. And so, I was focused on a short stay in Phnom Penh only. My search for a place focused on having breakfast and free wifi....and from there I read reviews. I knew that I may not ever return to Cambodia, and so I wanted to find a 'nice' place to make up a bit for my limited time and sightseeing opportunities. Staying at the Governor's House was like visiting a beautiful home of someone who has a clear sense of aesthetics. How could someone have such a sensibility and create such an atmosphere? Yet a place such as this can only be because of the staff that operates it. No one would praise this hotel (or return to it) if the staff wasn't as welcoming, helpful, and friendly. No issues from my perspective at all. Only 4 stars from me because there is not much within walking distance.
