Located right next to the royal palace and river, this is the perfect place to stay for all the action in Phnom Penh. Our room was spacious and had good aircon. Wifi worked quite well, and the staff seemed friendly. We had a nice little private balcony which was cute! Didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment. I don't... More

Good guesthouse with excellent position in front of National museum and Royal Palace, very close to river. Hot watter, Wi-Fi internet, good bed, AC and fan including. One problem, but I think it is normal in PhnomPenh - it is a bit noisy. But I can recommended.

Location is good in terms of being close to attractions but not so good if you would like to sleep at night. Traffic n city noises are very loud. We were on the 5th floor which is a lot of steep steps up. Good thing was that we had a window and great view. Beds are rock soild, so is... More

The guesthouse is located right in the tourist centre of Phnom Penh near the nice street 178. When I arrived, however, the staff could barely say one friendly word. I got the key of the room but no explanation how to get there. When I asked I got a short answer: "4th floor upstairs". This could be a major point... More

I thought the guesthouse was a decent place to stay. Location was good - although noisy. The thin walls didn't help as we could hear people in other rooms as well as guests going up and down the stairs. Our room was only the 4th floor so if you have a lot of luggage it would have been a struggle... More

It's right beside the palace and other attractions but at night it's loud as there are no proper windows on the rooms to cater for city life. The staff were asleep in our room when we arrived and make a lot of noise beside our room both late at night and early in the morning.

The location of this guesthouse is very central. The Royal Palace is right next to it just about 3 min walk. The main thing of this place that there is no elevator and if your room is on the 3rd floor your only way up there is through a staircase. I travel with suitcase which wieght 18 kilogram I couldn't... More

Great location and front desk lady who speaks perfect English and can organise and tours or transport for you. Rooms are basic and only have a silk cloth as a blanket, wifi can be a bit dodgy and a lot of stairs to climb if on a higher floor but a good budget choice if you're just staying a night... More
