We spent 3 nights at Pippali at the end of 2019 and thought it was exactly as advertised. It was busy but fairly tranquil even though it is close to the road. The room was well appointed and nice and quiet. We enjoyed the shady pool area in the heat of the day and never had a problem getting a lounger. Breakfast was simple but tasty. This was our second time in Kampot and even though we loved where we stayed the first time, they didn't have a pool, and we definitely enjoyed being able to cool down.
Location is also handy, a quick 10 minute walk along the riverfront to all the action.
We really like the hotel and the staff were lovely. Thanks for a great stay!
Seriously the worst hotel I have stayed in ever. The pool water was green (the staff said they had too many customers to clean it) everyone had itchy skin and sore eyes. We had to ask the staff for a cloth to clean the filthy tables as the Khmer staff stood and played and chatted to each other. The aircondioner rattled and spat out water all night. The bed was the hardest I have slept in after 40 years traveling extensively in Asia it felt like sleeping on a board, there were not enough pillow slips as they send them to the cleaner in the morning and wait until they are cleaned and hopefully ready later that day or the next day. Breakfast was cold and covered in flies. The wiring in the bedroom was exposed and dodgy. The bathrooms were small and cramped and mouldy. Happy hour took 45 minutes to get the first drink and 30 minutes to get the second and no one else was there for happy hour. The beer, cocktails and food is very expensive compared to better classes hotels and restaurants. Seriously think twice before staying at this hotel
Nice little hotel. Well located. Room was good. Staff completely clueless. Could not get anything right. After three requests for a light blanket for the room with no results we gave up. Also safe in room was not working. Here again requests for a fix went unanswered. Unfortunate.
We came to Kampot unexpectedly and luckily found this wonderful gem of a hotel. We walked in just to enquire about availability and price, and the receptionist was so helpful that it was an easy decision to make to stay here. During our 2 night stay all of the staff have been brilliant. The bedroom is very clean, fresh and modern with a large comfy bed. Breakfasts have been really good and served with a smile. The staff were able to organise our onward transfer at a competitive price - and a massage beside the pool for my wife! We would definitely stay here again if we are in Kampot.
So many places misuse the word 'boutique' these days but not this hotel it really is a little bijou boutique hotel. In a great location away from the noise of the town centre but still very walkable (about 900m), it is a stone's throw from the river and the beautiful views towards the mountains - the sunsets are a dream from the riverside. The room was comfortable with a great shower in the bathroom - the Wifi was passable and allowed us to do everything we wanted. The swimming pool was more or less unique in the town as far as we could tell and is beautifully designed. A huge positive is the staff especially the general manager, Mr Thina Chea, who was just a delight to deal with. He was friendly, understandable and helpful both before we arrive online and during out stay. This is an absolute gem - highly recommend.
