Travelers' Choice
It all started when we fell in love with a hidden gem of French-Khmer architecture from the 1920s next to Wat Botum, Phnom Penh's royal pagoda. Renovation and remodeling were done with respect for the character of a building which had been, as we learnt later on, a private retreat for Queen Consort Sisowath Kossamak, the late King Sihanouk's mother. Opened on 18 August 2006 with 10 rooms, The Pavilion has slowly expanded over the years, offering now 36 accommodations throughout three more period buildings that have been added to the property: "The New House" (which hosts its 4 Private Pool Rooms, with each their plunge pool), once the residence of the chief veterinarian at the Royal Palace; "The New Villa", formerly the private residence of a Cambodian senator , and "The Sun-Pool Villa", our latest addition which used to be the Residence of the Philippines Ambassador. Each one has its own style and atmosphere, with distinctive architectural features such as an elaborate wooden stairway, intricate iron wrought railings, etc. The Pavilion only accepts guests over 16 years old, and visitors from outside cannot join in the rooms.

A perfect hotel in the heart of Phenom Penh. Fantastic staff who go above and beyond. I booked trips and taxis with the hotel and they couldn’t do enough for me. The rooms are unique. Great food and amazing place to come back to after a busy day of sight seeing.

So, when our agent booked he did say Spartan which we questioned. he said more basic than others but a little gem That description is bang on. The rooms are fine but quite basic, my biggest thing was the air con was really strong enough so we needed the t=freestanding fan too. However we slept really well, and the bed was comfortable. Hotel also located in a decent place to be able to get to the river for the nightlife etc Breakfast was served rather than buffet (quite nice to be served tbh) and they would bring whatever you wanted from the menu Where the hotel comes into its own is the outside space, blows your mind how tranquil (like the picyures) There are 2 pools, we found the one out the back which we preferred to the one pictured hera at the breakfast area. Despite being outside the city might as well have been 20 miles away!

Dear Dave, many thanks for your review. Pavilion is a historical mansion dating from the twenties. We chose to use furniture and decoration that merge with this period and did not want to go for more common contemporary elements that would have harmed the spirit of the place. For a more contemporary feel of Phnom Penh, we have the Penh House Hotel, just 100m up the street. With the Maadest, we also have a floating room on the Mekong and one in a public park. We try our best to match everyone’s tastes.

After sunrise near Siem reap and a packed day of lotus farming and markets, the late flight to Phnom Penh landed around nine pm. Walking in to the garden of the Pavilion was an oasis I hadn’t expected. I could feel a smile spread across my tired face. It’s now among my favorite hotels EVER. Warm greeting and kind faces, wonderful swimming pools and fabulous breakfast and I was set for walking 10 miles in 95 degree F weather. Great place!!

When we entered…WOW. What a nice surprise. So green, so beautiful and so tranquil. We were here only for 2 nights. We slept in the garden bungalow. Everything was perfect, the service, the room, breakfast and cocktails. We hope to come back one day

Third time here. Wonderful place and wonderful stuff. They even organised a dragons dance for the lunar new year near the lush pool. Great experience as expected. The thing that needs improvement is still the restaurant. Breakfast is very good though. I highly recommend
