Not only is so far away from downtown, but the people in the hotel barely speak english so it is very difficult to get any information. The breakfast that is included is so poor. The same every day. The bathrooms are terribly finished and they do not even turn on the lights in the lobby. I wouldn't recommend to stay... More

Good low cost 4 star hotel. Too far from airport. Excellent view from riverside open rooms. Lot of choices in morning complementary brakefast. Poor room service. Hotel staff is courtious but very little English speaking knowledge. Daily needs items are expensive in hotel premise shop.

My mother-in-law booked this for us while we stayed in Phnom Pen. I think our expectations were a bit high based on some pictures we had seen on the internet and some other things. We stayed three nights and the hotel was basically very quiet the first two nights. I would guess no more than 15 rooms had guests. No... More

Pre-booked via Expedia, we ended up staying less than half of the nights we booked. It's a $5 each way tuk tuk ride from anything. Only one staff member spoke English, I tried 5 times to ask to speak to the Manager, to no avail. Ripped sheets in the bedroom, a ripped-out speaker left on the bedside cabinet, leaky shower,...

We picked this hotel for river views and sky bar BUT our first impressions were quite bad, we could barely communicate with reception (which isn't there fault but we had high expectations coming from siem reap and it being the capital city) they couldn't provide us with information on local attractions eg killing fields, museum etc. It was a long...

Hotel was in good location in the middle of backpacker district. Staff were really friendly and helped to plan activities and our onwards trip. Breakfast was included and served tasty egg dishes. There's no lift which is a bit of a con but staff helped to carry our bags. Thought it was a bit pricey at 27$ a night (backpacker... More

We've been there for 3 nights, I recommend this hotel, the only minus is the location, because it is a little far away from the centre, but there is a free shuttle service from to hotel, or you can get a tuk-tuk. Very big rooms, clean and comfortable. Good service. Delicious food at the restaurant. Very good hotel!

Lovely little hotel situated close to Mekong river surrounded by pretty nice view just 15 minutes drive from town. Staff are very gracious and friendly with one professional GM led by Ms. Saradin Ly who's running this hotel whom I just met at the first time during my stay there, she's very helpful and trustworthy. The room is pretty clean... More

This hotel fails to deliver: (a) they did not send the agreed free taxi to the airport, instead we waited for 20 mins and organised ourselves (of course there was no compensation); (b) the bathroom flooded every morning because of poor shower drainage; (c) showers were cold; (d) keysafe was not attached to floor/wall and could be picked up; (e)...
