The hotel is situated on the river front, in the heart of the touristic neighbourhood. This means it isn't the safest area, although Phnom Penh is generally considered a safe city. You will also be really close to most attractions, many bars and restaurants. A lively, touristy district also means being exposed to the usual drugs and girls offers every 100 meters.
for 76$/night, the hotel common areas and bathroom BADLY let you down. I may be demanding but other reviews confirm the general state of cleanliness is not up to standards. Nasty smell in the staircase leading to the rooms and in the corridors. (the lift is apparently under construction). With this budget in Phnom Penh, one could expect to have a clean bathroom and enough hot water.
Rooms are clean and cosy, 4 poster bed, breakfast is ok and river views are really pleasant. The Bougainviller must have been a nice hotel 10 years ago but one can clearly see it is growing old and maintenance works are done by inexperienced staff; saving money seems to be the general state of mind if you consider some of the repair work done in the room (drain filled with cement, yellow joints, old shower head etc.)
I do not understand reviewers rating the hotel 4 and 5 stars as this is not what I would expect with 4 stars. The hotel has some good points but the overall experience is certainly not good and not value for money. If you are to pay this price, there are much better hotels in Phnom Penh.
