When researching for our months' holiday someone else described this hotel as an oasis and honestly it is the best description. Well placed in the centre of town, don't be put off by the description of concrete furniture; it works! Looks and feels a bit like marble and is perfect for the climate. The pool area is beautifully green and shady and the cabanas have notices on them reserving them for hotel guests rather than 'outsiders' who take pot luck with the rest of the chairs.
We had room 11 on the 3rd floor which was a lots of steps but once there was worth it as it overlooked the pool with a small balcony. The setup is a bit quirky as you have to go onto the very small balcony (though it does have seats and a table) to get to the bathroom, but this not as bad as it sounds. The room was immaculate, bed comfy and the only thing that could be improved upon is lack of any drawers to put clothes.
The staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is served by the pool and although not too much choice it consisted of bread, which was beautiful, fruit, and eggs to order so it was just fine.
Whilst in Phnom Penh do have a drink at the Foreign Correspondents Club, known by everyone as FCC. Very atmospheric, famous photos by the journos who were there in the bad times, but for all that a wonderful place to take advantage of their generous happy hour and enjoy sitting on the balcony overlooking the river.
