This review is long overdue. I stayed at Arthur and Paul around Christmas time and cannot wait to go back! The staff is amazingly friendly and everyone will go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. My room was huge and had a balcony, the bed was incredibly comfy and I loved how spacious the shower was. The pool is simply gorgeous, one just feels as if in the middle of a jungle although you’re in the heart of Phnom Penh! One suggestion, maybe it could be heated! I only met one the owners, Thibaut and he is a doll, so friendly and welcoming. I loved the food, the breakfast with amazing croissants and pains au chocolat in the morning. I know what I’m talking about, my dad is French! The gay sauna is a wonderful addition to the hotel and I wish I were still there! If you’re a gay man and you’re traveling on your own, you will not be bored at Arthur and Paul! It’s a tad more expensive than the other hotels in the area but it was well worth every cent I paid! I loved the place and can only recommend it!

I am so happy I booked this hotel, the location was perfect and was a quick walk or a close Tuk Tuk everywhere. The room and public spaces were incredibly welcoming and extremely well decorated and interesting. The breakfast was perfect and I often couldn't finish because it was too much, delicious pastries, eggs, charcuterie, fruits etc. and just well prepared and served. French food in the restaurant was delicious and the perfect alternative to the days and nights when we tried many delicious Khmer dishes out and about in the city. Everything we ate at A&P was great. Me and my partner are both big guys and the bed was incredibly comfortable for us both with giant amazing pillows. The room was always well cleaned and smelled very fresh and clean always, which I loved. There were other couples staying there and everyone seemed very nice. During the day it was very relaxing by the pool, which got sun from 10am to 2pm, perfect for tanning. Also in the evenings when the spa opened to the public there were other tourists and locals that were there and it was a fun lively spa with a very good vibe, great music, nice people. Well worth it and we will be back and will recommend. I was working during the week and the wifi was great, I had lots of zoom calls and never had any issue with connection for working. The owner was around to help me with anything I needed and was a genuinely nice person who you can tell cares a great deal about his hotel and maintaining an exceptional standard. I also felt very safe throughout my stay, it was classy and sexy. Lots of nice guys to meet in the evenings. There was often guys at the bar having drinks to chat with or lots of space where we could go off and do our own thing. Having the spa there everynight for a jacuzzi or steam, sauna, was also amazing. You won't regret staying here.

3 Nights at A+P - really perfect!
We arrived in the evening when the sauna was already open. Still we had a warm welcome, were brought to the room. Everything was organized well. The staff knew from the first moment in which room we stay so we never had to tell them the room number when ordering food or drinks. Food is amazing, the massages are outstanding. We really enjoyed our stay here and will come back for sure! Perfect hotel and SPA for the gay community (sauna is also available with daily access). Especially for those who don‘t want mass tourism.

It is a comfortable place. The room was well set up, good sized bed, fluffy pillows, attractive layout, good bathroom facilities, great (and private) balcony. Pool is fantastic, with a wall of plants down one side. Food was good (a REALLY hearty breakfast. But best of all, the service. All extremely helpful, especially Thibaud, the boss, who could not have been more welcoming and helpful. He set me up with a SIM card and got the app for ordering transport onto my phone, gave good advice about things to do and see, and really made our stay so easy and relaxed.

This was my second time staying at Arthur and Paul (A&P). We stayed fro 10 nights which was longer than last time, so I think that is a strong indication of my love for this resort.

The rooms are amazing, as are the facilities. A&P is located for easy access to anything in Phnom Penh, with a very large shopping centre about 5 minutes from the resort by Tuk Tuk.

The food continues to be of good value as is the bar.

The privacy of the pool and sauna are provides the comfort one needs for the clothing optional areas.

The sauna area is available for resort guests at no additional charge, and local can use the facilities for a fee.

Highly recommend this resort for men.

In our view this is the top place for Gay men to visit in Asia. We have stayed several times. From the pre-booked Taxi at the airport on arrival collect everyone takes pride from the owner and his staff make our stay top notch. The reception staff are very helpful arranging tours and the Hotel has its own Tuk-Tuk available for single trips or hourly basis visiting the city. The rooms are very clean and spacial and well stocked with toiletries . Food is very good with a Menu to cater for various dietary requirements. The fruit drinks made from fresh fruit daily and blended were very yummy. The bar is well stocked and the Barmen knew how to really make cocktails correctly to a high standard. The facilities of Sauna, Spa pool and Steam room were kept very clean. The venue allows locals to use the facilities so one can come across someone who can often take you to see the city, more so through a local's eye than the busy view the tourist often has. Would certain recommend a stay. We will be back.

Very nice and clean hotel with comfy bed, the room is very well design with awesome furnitures, the bathroom is perfect and spotless.
I like the whattsap chanel for ordering room service and all kind of services in French, English, German or Khmer.
The Breakfast is served with French Pastries and Fresh Orange Juices and all other things you need.
The Swimming pool and the jacuzzi are great for relaxing, both saunas are well maintain.
There is a few people hanging on at the bar for aperitif and it is always nice to gather with other nationnalities.
The staff is amazing, as the crowd during the evening on the first floor.
I will definitively come back as the owners welcomed and farewelled me as a Queen :)

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical when I booked my hotel room at A&P.

But then I got there. And the moment I saw the beautiful lobby and the big rooms with high ceilings and soft lighting, I knew this was going to be one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in.

The staff was very accommodating—they even made sure that all my requests were met and that my stay was as comfortable as possible.

I had a great experience at A&P—I'm definitely planning on returning soon!

Nice boutique hotel for male adult only. Clean, well managed, centrally located. The common area is nicely decorated to make it feel like a spa/sanctuary. The room is big. Hot water didn't work in our room.
