“Attractive hotel”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

An attractive, clean and modern hotel with well appointed good sized rooms if you have the deluxe as we did. Television, hairdryer, kettle, fridge and good WiFi all provided. We found the reception staff to be helpful. The buffet breakfast is very good and the hotel has a decent dinner menu with Asian and Western dishes and also a large, if somewhat expensive, Chinese menu which attracts many outsiders in to dine. They also come in for the extensive a la carte Chinese breakfast. These extra visitors make the dining area very crowded and noisy. I was also disappointed by the hard beds; the poor lighting in the rooms so that you could only read in bed if you removed the shade from the bedside light; the restaurant which is actually tables placed all over reception which gives a very noisy dining room and no place to sit quietly if waiting for someone; and the location is poor. It is a good 15 minute walk to the Royal Palace and then a good further 10 minutes to Riverside or a $2/3 tuk tuk ride. However, it represents reasonable value in Phnom Penh. It is perhaps more for business people than tourists.

Room was a bit small for western standards. They use old fashioned keys rather than key cards. Bathroom was modern and had good water pressure for shower and toilet. Tile floors were clean. We had no window, no view...Bed was firm, but we slept well after all day outings anyway.

Staff was very friendly. I enjoyed the breakfasts...there was good Asian and western food, fresh every day. I will agree with other reviews that it was the best breakfast buffet. And the coffee was super good! You will not crave Starbucks at all. If you enjoy meeting fellow travelers, this is a great space for conversation...we met Belgians, Americans, and Japanese fellow travelers.

Overall, it was a cozy home base after excursions to the sites: royal palace, tuol sleng, killing fields, quad tours, riverside walk, etc.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window away from construction next door.

The room was a good size, and well appointed. Free wifi worked well. The breakfasts were the best we had in South East Asia, with a good mix of western and local food, including an egg station.

A friend highly recommended this hotel, and she is usually spot-on but I was only slightly disappointed with this property. For the price, the rooms were clean (but as others have mentioned, I would not recommend getting a room without windows.) This was my first time in PP, so I can't quite compare the price and quality.

If you like to sleep in, the neighboring hotel does start very loud construction work at about 8:30 am, which is well-noted on signs in the hotel and certainly isn't the fault of Almond. I wasn't aware that this was a business hotel before reserving, but I'm not sure it's meant for tourists. I had several questions about itineraries/best mode of transportation and the like, and while the front desk helped us book a taxi, they weren't exactly jumping at the chance to help me make it easy for my two days in Phnom Penh.

Welcome beer, wifi, and mostly kind faces around the hotel were much appreciated. There was one male front desk worker who seemed very annoyed with my questions, and incorrectly told me when my laundry would be done and what to do with it. Furthermore, the laundry came back-- unwashed! While they do not do the laundry onsite, I would recommend they utilize another service as there was no offer of compensation for the inconvenience.

A decent stay, I think I was just expecting a bit more after a friend's stellar review.

Room Tip: Don't get the windowless room.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the Almond Hotel during my travels to SE Asia in Nov 2011. For a three star hotel, I thought it is a solid choice. The room was was by no means fancy, but definitely clean and comfortable, the wifi connection was good, and the breakfast was excellent (with really good Chinese congee and great baguette). The hotel may not be totally in the middle of town, but it is a very short tuk-tuk ride to most places of interest (cost the four of us $3 one night on a tuk-tuk to go to a restaurant in town).
I would definitely recommend this hotel if one is looking for a 3 star property.

Room Tip: Enjoy the breakfast buffet!

Was on a business trip on 8 - 12 Nov and highly recommended by friends to stay at Almond which they said suit my budget and needs as a business person. Found the hotel affordable, clean, staff is friendly and most of all, great food selection. The quality of the bed and comfortness of the room is to my expectation and the breakfast is superb - i get to choose between chinese dim sum or the local Cambodian dishes. Fresh croissants and juices to the selection. Wifi was working perfect and I must say that for the attractive room rate I paid online, the service and quality of my stay was beyond my expectation. I had stayed in some intenational 4 star hotels in Phnom Penh but sadly, not as friendly nor comfortable and most of all, one has to pay for internet! So well done Almond Hotel, management and staff! I will definitely spread the word for you. Keep up the good service.
