“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We stayed at these apartments/ hotel for four nights recently and found it excellent. We were particularly impressed by the level of English spoken which was a bonus for us as English speakers. Rooms were large, wonderfully equipped and clean. Breakfast was included in our room charge and the buffet was of a very high standard. There was a great variety of foods to choose from and it catered to many tastes. Service was quick.
Staff members were exceptionally friendly, helpful and efficient.
The only downside from our point of view was we encountered dogs in the lift that apparently live in apartments with their owners. Being afraid of dogs as a result of previous biting incidents this was not pleasant.

I had the absolute pleasure of staying here for the second time from 8th April 2013 until 15th April. As soon as I arrived in the Hotel lobby Mr.Heng came running over to great me with such wonderful words " Welcome home Sir, welcome home " is what he said to me. He had remembered me from over a year ago. He is a true gentleman and nothing was too much trouble for him to do for me during my stay. In my opinion he should be promoted to General Manager immediatley. He is the sole reason that I would choose to stay at The Himawai again. I just can not praise him highly enough. Thank You Sir, Thank You Mr Heng so, so much.

just stayed for 1 month in a 2 bedroomed appartment/room and as usual found it clean and well equipped and very spacious
this is the ideal hotel position wise as well, as you are on the riverside and near everything that matters
secure and good for a family. pool area very good
overall a relaxing base for phnom penh and beyond and very good value compared to other top hotels in the city

Room Tip: stayed 3 times never had a bad room

Being a hotel apartment, this is the best choice for family with kids. The Royal Palace, Museum, restaurants and souvenir shops are just at walking distance. Staffs are very friendly, and try to accommodate to my requests. Padang House Restaurant in the hotel's compound serves halal food. Swimming pool located at a more privacy area, away from restaurant.

Room Tip: Request for a room that has river view

Where should I start...
The hotel is very stylish and well designed.
Beautiful view to the river, friendly and helpfull staff.
Location is just on Sisowath Quay, near the royal palace.
Walking distance to many embassies and a huge park on one side, and about 5 minutes walk to many restaurants and coffee places on the other side.
Oyster restaurant dinner buffet is very good, for a very fair price.
Tasty, fresh, clean, big selection.
One of the best hotels i've been in Asia troughout the years.

I visited Himawari Hotel Apartments as part of my Business Study Mission in Cambodia. We were hosted over an awesome dinner. The food items served were impressive, in terms of both looks and taste.The service staff were friendly and quick in catering to my requests. In addition, Himawari Hotel Apartments has an in-house microbrewery which serves their award-winning beer to customers. Located right behind the brewery is a ferry port with a magnificent view of the waters! It looks especially stunning at night. Himawari Hotel Apartments definitely holds high regard for product, service quality and customer satisfaction! A must-stay in Cambodia!

Having stayed at the Himawari a number of times before I have gotten used to their great level of service. The location couldn't be any better for seeing the sights of this interesting city. They are right on the water and within easy walking distance to the palace and museum.

The food available in the hotel is top shelf!. The breakfast is to die for if you enjoy exotic fruit.

When making our reservation (directly with the hotel), we had a special request. Upon checking in the staff went out of its way to meet that request.

The rooms have always been very quite even though the hotel is location on a major street.

I would have no issue staying at the Himawara every time in Phnom Penh.
