“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

My husband and i stayed here for 4 nights whilst travelling from malaysia and then on to vietnam. The hotel is lovely, staff are superb and location is amazing you are on the river and have a view of the grand palace. The room we booked was a junior suite which included breakfast, our room had a small balcony(enough room for a table and 2 chairs) which had a view of the river and the palace, the room was lovely, all dark wood floors and furniture and very cool feeling(there was airconditioning), the bed was very comfy and i slept very well. The bathroom was a good size and there was no problems with hot water or pressure. The breakfast was nice but for my husband was not big enough so after one breakfast in the hotel we went out for it, plenty of places to eat and is so very cheap. The roof top bar (le moon) is fab, it has a very relaxed, chill out atmosphere, plenty of seating and fantastic views of the river, try to get up there for sunset as you will get some great pictures. I love Cambodia and when my husband and i revisit phnom penh we will stay here again.

While I last traveled to phnom penh, I found that the security guard of this hotel were so so so bad! I don't understand why they have two team of security guard with two different uniform, toke the same duty in same area!
What I want to say is the guard with blue uniform was so so so nausea and rude!!! How come a 4 stars hotel provide such a rubbish security guards!!!

My father has just returned from The Pancam and has not had service as good as this on any of his trips to Phnom Penh.He had a panoramic room that I booked for him and as someone who loves looking at the river and the river traffic,this was utopia.Stay here and you will be glad you did.The facilities and the staff are first class.

Room Tip: Go for the Panoramic room

The Amanjaya is a small characterful "boutique hotel" on the waterfront in the heart of the City. It is perfect for sight-seeing and although the location appears noisy, we experienced no difficulty in sleeping. The room (all 21 rooms are suites) was simply vast and beautifully styled in contempoary Cambodian design - one of the best rooms we have ever stayed in. Everything worked. Great AC.
The common parts are rather less impressive and fairly rudimentary. Breakfast is in the Hotel's cafe. The menu is limited but the breakfasts were fine. However, the second morning the coffee machine broke down and the hotel could not serve coffee, apparently they had only one machine. Service generally is ok, if rather "quirky", but is significantly hampered by the language barrier. The roof top bar is fabulous and a destination in itself at night, where you can enjoy great views over the city.
In short, a freshing change from "corporate" 4/5 stars in an unparalleled location with stunning rooms, but expect "local-style" service rather than 5 star service.

Room Tip: All rooms are suites and very sizable.

I travel regularly to phnom penh . Amanjaya certainly one of the best places in town. Nicely designed big rooms. Located beautiful and central. Not cheap (starts at ca 100$ corporate rate) but good value. Nice roof top bar.

The hotel looks exactly like the photographs on Trip Advisor. Upon check-in they brought us a cold wash cloth and a welcome punch drink in a martini glass. The check-in went quickly and smoothly and our room was on the second floor very near the elevator.

The room was very large and comfortable. We had a balcony that looked south toward the royal palace with a good view of the Mekong River and the promenade along the west bank. There was a king size bed that was firm but not uncomfortable. The pillows were foam and very comfortable. We had a plasma TV with several English channels. There is a small refrigerator. Internet was wireless and had enough band width that we were able to use our slingbox (this is very unusual in my experience). The floors were dark hardwood. The bathroom had a shower, but no tub. The vanity space was adequate and there was ample storage space for our toiletries.

While four streets intersected in a confusing manner right below our balcony, and were often clogged with traffic moving in all directions, we were never bothered by the traffic noise.

Breakfast was in the restaurant on the first floor and one orders from the same menu that a customer off the street would receive, but without any restrictions on the number of items or price. There are a large number of restaurants catering to expats and tourists just north and south of the hotel and it is within easy walking distance of the pier where the tourist river boats dock.

The hotel has a rooftop bar with excellent views if you are lucky enough to get a table by one of the two edges that face east and south. Surprisingly, because it was not cheap, it seemed to have a fair number of locals among the patrons.

We had very little dealings with the front desk, though they always greeted us warmly whenever we went to and from our room. They did arrange for the booking of the Mekong Express bus to Siem Reap and that all worked flawlessly.

In summary, I really liked this hotel and felt that it was in an excellent location and was an excellent value.

I have posted pictures with this review.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and were pleased with the location which is central. Stayed in a junior suite roadside and did not find any problem with traffic noise. The little balcony is a nice place to watch the world go by and people on the outdoor gym equipment on the other side of the street which is popular day and night with both locals and tourists. Plenty of bars and small restaurants right near the hotel so if you have just arrived, you don't need to go far for a meal or a drink. The rooftop bar has good views with a breeze and happy hour(s).
