Don't be deceived by the brochure the agent may show you - The King looks good in the pictures, carefully angled and nicely prepared. Perhaps the recent years have been tough on Phnom Penh, perhaps the big modern hotels have spoiled the old charm.
But there's no excuse - backpacking hostels are indispensable, but hotels and guesthouses should be better. Mass discounted tourism has brought volume trade, the market is there if certain standards were maintained.
The approach to The King is friendly, chaotic and fun. But the internal experience is dirty, undermaintained and disreputable. Unless buying solely by price, cheapest, avoid The King
