Stayed a couple of nights at the Himawari in October 2012. It is a good choice as the location is great, not far from the bar district of the town and right on the river.
Rooms were fairly big with their own kitchenette and a good sized bathroom. Mine had a balcony overlooking the Cambodiana Hotel next door, this is not the best view, you really want a room overlooking the river. Try to avoid a room facing the road as the motos and tuk tuks can be fairly noisy.
Service was reasonably good apart from one guy on the night desk who did not understand what was being requested. Everyone else was great, efficient and polite.
Did have one thing go wrong with my room when the A/C backed up and poured water onto my floor. Fortunately I had not left any bags under it. Its one thing to watch out for.
Cambodia is not a straightforward travel destination and you have to be prepared to take the rough with the smooth, but it is worth every moment. Staying at the Himawari sure made it easier.
