The owners of the Hotel have been in Phnom Penh for more than 10 years now. They have managed to create this lovely hotel with intimate and peacefull sensation in the middle of Phnom Penh. Every time I stayed there it has been a very pleasant experience, with good staff that has been working for many years in the hotel so for loyal customers it kind of feels like home after a while. Not only the rooms are affordable, clean and well equiped but the local and western food is delicious.

Due to the recent events in the world, we ended at Nicole and Stephane's place. We were immediately feeling better, Stephane and Nicole and their staff took care of us like if we were part of the family. The hotel is located in an area without works so you can have a good sleep. We will go back for sure, food and pool were also great, so many good memories and laugh in this difficult times. GO 252!!!!

Owner run boutique hotel great for a stay if visiting the city. Not a great location in terms of the road etc but near enough to get to everything with a short tuk tuk ride. When you enter into the court yard with the lovely pool you can forget about the hustle and bustle of the city and relax. The bar and food area also by the pool does great food so if you really want to relax you don't have to go anywhere. We had a very large clean room. Small TV with some English channels and tea / coffee making facilities. Air con however a bit small for the size of the room. I would recommend if you want small and attentive rather than a large chain.

The entrance to the hotel is a leafy courtyard around a nice-sized swimming pool with tables and sofas great for lounging, especially during the hotter part of the day or in the evening, with a bar/restaurant. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. There is security at the entrance at night. The rooms are a good size, clean and quiet, with simple but stylish furnishings. The fan and air-conditioning keep the room cool. The shower is large. The bed is big and the mattress very firm. The food is good, the beer cold and the chocolate mousse is amazing. The wifi works throughout the hotel, though it sometimes drops. Overall, this is excellent value and a peaceful and conveniently located mid-range hotel that supports an independent business over a chain.
