The hotel is easy to find and fairly close to everything, particularly Sisowath Quay (which is where you want to be). Having said that, walking even a few blocks can be a trial in Phnom Penh due to the traffic and lack of pavement.
The rooms are simple, slightly aged, but fine. Make sure you complain immediately if your hot water and/or aircon mysteriously turn off during your stay.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, though they are not afraid to tell white lies to make things sound better than they are, or to mark prices up ridiculously. All prices are still reasonable considering they are Cambodian prices, but relative to what you pay elsewhere in town, hiring a driver for a day or an order for bus tickets find a hefty markup attached to make a nice commission for the hotel. Breakfast is also overpriced, though laundry is reasonable.
It's certainly nothing flash - the Paragon and other nearby hotels looked pretty good from the outside when we walked past them (for a similar pricerange), but you could certainly do worse.
