We enjoyed 2 nights in a State Room on the 3rd floor overlooking the pools. There are 2 pools, one of which is rather shallow but is a nice place to escape the occasional crowds in the deeper pooler. Breakfast options were great and catered to western and Asian taste buds. Our room was simple and had everything we needed... More

Just what you'd expect from the Raffles brand. Clean well appointed rooms in a traditional style, excellent pools with plenty of loungers, good restaurants, extensive breakfast and lunch buffets, perfect service, nice bar that's open 'til late... All in all a good choice for business or pleasure

My wife and I had the good fortune to enjoy a fairly lengthy stay in the Raffles Hotel, Phnom Penh. While we are fairly experienced travellers, this hotel was the greatest experience we've ever had, without question. Not only is the property a classy, luxury hotel, with extensive facilities presented in a neat and spotless manner, the staff are second... More

Stayed for only one night, but this was enough to soak up the historical atmosphere of the hotel and experience the exceptional service. The check in was fast, efficient, friendly and relaxing. I really enjoyed checking in while sitting in the lobby as opposed to waiting at a check-in counter. The Landmark room was very historical with lovely high ceilings... More

Stay in a 4 star and upgrade your room for cheaper. The rooms are old and tired, grubby. They are cleanish but the rugs in the rooms are stained, the bathroom is cramped and the shower leaks out onto the floor. Good location though.

The raffles in Phnom Penh is one of my all time favorite hotels in the world. It has a distinct old world colonial charm complete with Bakelite light switches, high ceilings, and porcelain and chrome water tabs. There is no "in your face" modern tech luxuries, but calm understated opulence. The bar is a master piece and the food is... More
