“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Great deal! In Phnom Penh you can check in a very disappointing hotel, or pay 5$ more to have a decent one with swimming pool and friendly staff!
Room was a little tired and small but still a good choice.

Booked a room here through agoda which was all fine. The rooms are a little on the basic side but they cover all the essentials. I would recommend getting the pool view ones for a few dollars more as they are nicer. The pool itself is really nice, and is surrounded by a nice seating area with a bar. Breakfasts are pretty good, and they also serve decent food. Location wise, it is a short walk or even shorter tuk tuk ride from most of the main sights. The people who work here all speak good English and are very helpful with booking coaches, day trips, etc.

Lovely little hotel around a central pool - location is near central markets and large variety of restaurants. The restaurant is great for a beer and a chat.
Great atmosphere, and staff are very friendly and helpful, and always smiling.

Great staff
Beautiful, clean, high standard hotel.
Great housekeeping
DVD player in double deluxe room - balcony was nice
surrounded by buildings and not a very pretty view and sometimes tuk tuk drivers didn't know where it was.
very close to central market and Sorya!
The pool being the main part of the hotel was alright - very salty. Towels provided at pool.
Restaurant was good - great service. Decent food

Room Tip: Standard double is small Deluxe Double is much more worthwhile

The hotel is decent and the pool is gorgeous.
The atmosphere was great with families and single travelers coexisting in the pool/bar area downstairs to eat, sip a cold beer or go for a swim. I recommend this for travelers who aren't accustomed to 5 star resorts but don't want to stay in a room that looks like it was from the 1970'

This is a gem in Phnom Penh. Comfortable and clean rooms and a really nice pool. Close to some very nice restaurants and near Central Market. The bar area is around the pool and a good place to discuss your day in warm Phnom Penh with a cold beer.
