“Great hotel in good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This hotel is tucked away down a very quiet street, home to some government residences, so security at both ends making it very safe (Not that we found the city to be dangerous in any way).
Location is good as still within walking distance (15-20 mins) of Royal Palace, Sisowath Quay, etc
It only has 18 rooms yet enough staff to offer good service. The breakfasts were excellent and included in the price. The pool is an added bonus and was a welcome relief in the afternoon after travelling around during the day.
The rooms are clean and spacious and we also had our own balcony.
Hotel is relatively pricey by Asian standards but it does have many plus points and I would say it's worth it.

For the asked price, this is a really bad value.
Our room was small, dark, and the decoration was simple and really not nice.
The staff was really lazy and spend sometimes 2 hours as slepping on a table in the restaurant.
We was travelling with 2 children and us driver was not allow to go inside the street, so we have to walk with all your bagagge to the hotel.
The frozen food served at the restaurant was the most horrible that we eat in 2 weeks in Cambodia.
I will not recommand this place to somebody

Unfortunately our preferred hotel, The Pavilion, was fully booked so The Kabiki was 2nd choice. Still a lovely hotel if not a little too family friendly for us. We stayed in room 7 for one night. Very dark and riddled with mozzies. Moved upstairs to 17, much better. Safe location and being run by the same people as The Pavilion very nice.

Room Tip: Rooms downstairs behind reception are very dark with mozzies rooms upstairs much better

We loved our time at the Kabiki, from the welcome by Samnang when we arrived at night ( after leaving camera on the plane...another story!) to the friendly staff everywhere they made our stay.
we loved wandering the streets and returning home to the lovely pool and smoothies!! One of the staff members (soh) even minded our children by the pool while we explored the city , we fellt very safe to do this. The hotel has security on the front gate, and the whole street is under police guard.

The rooms are simple and perhaps need a repaint inside to freshen them up. We were downstairs which was dark but very cool. If you want more light request an upstairs room.
delicious breakfasts. Simple food but tasty.

For the price the value is excellent.

We were very impressed with this lovely little hotel, Very peaceful and relaxing gardens, lovely pool. On checking in, the very friendly staff made us feel very welcome. One sat down and gave helpful information about the area, including how to get around and how much fares should be in taxis and tuktuks. Breakfast was delicious, as others have said, not sure if it was the season but we had the treat of fresh passion fruit juice along with excellent fresh bread and coffee. The place was well-maintained, our room was spotless.

We last visited 3 years ago and were happy to recommend the Kabiki to others. Wondered whether things had changed much in 3 years but happy to report we had another great stay despite evening downpours on the way to the poolside restaurant! Staff very polite, friendly and thoughtful. My daughter was even given a cuddly toy on arrival which was promptly named Kiki Kabiki and stayed with us throughout our travels in Cambodia and home. Pool area is lovely, location excellent, restaurant food good and rooms are still in good condition. We stayed in a twin with 2 huge double beds near the restaurant, but would recommend to management that a good clean is needed under the beds, but this hasn't put us off going back again or recommending to other families.

Room Tip: Twin bedded room next to the restaurant is great for famlies since both beds are large doubles.

Sorry but I just cannot hide my enthousiasm for this hotel, where we had absolutely the best stay in the whole Cambodia. The hotel is on a closed to traffic street as it is between the residence of the prime minister and another powerful member of the parlament. It has a lush garden and a swimming pool nested in the middled of large trees. It feels very private in here; you have the impression you're the only guest or almost. It's very calm and you can fully relax and retreat back from the buzz of the city. Breakfast is very generous with a French touch.We loved the freshly baked bread and butter. You can basically ask for anything you like. We had 4 minutes eggs and Müessli extra, besides the basic version, which we found already pretty rich. We had the Superior room and we loved it. It was so spacious and comfortable. We just loved our stay at The Kabiki.
