We stayed 2 nights in this gem of a hotel and are floored by every aspect of the experience & at such reasonable rates! Wow.
It is a beautiful heritage building, lushly green, a beautiful pool and rooms having a spa feel. The colors are warm, the fabrics used on the room are silk & linen, flower petals on the bed welcome you, welcome drinks, fruits & complimentary sangria at the pool side bar – to compensate for some construction work ! The décor in the lobby is so quaint & each room has its own private porch to sit out. The staff had the best English we found across 7 cities in Vietnam & Cambodia and were epitome of efficiency and graciousness.
Breakfast is fresh, plentiful with freshly baked bread, fresh juice and more.
The spa offered 30mt free massage – wow ! Though the spa quality per se was not best in class.
The bus tickets booked through the hotel cost the same as at a travel agent and we received excellent information & service.
Location wise, it is 15 minutes walk from the quay but close to Street 240, which has very interesting restaurants & boutiques.
This hotel was one of the best we experienced & I would want to go back to Phnom Penh – maybe only for staying there.
