“Very cosy, immaculately clean and a great location!”
Reviewed September 10, 2010

I had a very enjoyable stay at Nordic House. The room was clean, quiet and the bed was big and comfortable. It's right in the heart of the action, by the riverside and amongst the bars and restuarants in Phnom Penh - you couldn't ask for a better location.
The food there is good too, though sadly not included in the price.

Stayed for 3 nights during Janauary 2010 in this nice guesthouse. The room was small with a wetroom / toilet but decently priced at $15. Bed was comfy and there was a TV although zero view. Laundry services was provided for free which was a nice surprise. The owner and staff are all very helpful. Resturant food was ok. Location is great on the riverside and the royal palace is within walking distance.

There are some excellent cheaply priced rooms in this hotel (not quite backpacker cheap), and some khmer style weird ones which are even cheaper. The best thing about the Nordic is the woman who runs the place. She is extremely sweet and will try and accommodate your every whim. It's basically on Riverside, so close to everything you need to be near. Restaurants, cafes, markets and all the major tourists attractions. All the staff are friendly, and the larger rooms you could live in. Occasionally it's a little bit noisy due to it's location. Great for a couple, or a bachelor.

Ideal part of town, close to action. Very friendly and helpful staff (and this includes the Norwegian owner). Large comfortable apartment - stayed a total of 8 days - which speaks for itself. Good food and cold beer. I definitely plan to stay there again in the future!

Nice room (the one with window and balcony) but steep stairs to get to them. Staff speaks reasonably good English. Good prices (in low season).

Booked studio apartments (#8 and #4) at Nordic House (www.nordic-cambodia.com) in mid-January for $30 a night (rooms are $20). The studio # 8 was very large, had a balcony (with 2 chairs) but had a musty/sewer smell with paint peeling on the wall. Apartment #4 was the same size but not musty. The fridge turns off in #8 when the key card is removed, so you know what you must do. Housekeeping is non-existent after check in. Wifi doesn’t work on the top floor in apartment #8 but does in apartment #4 as well as in the restaurant on the main floor. They advertise Ethernet for the security conscious, well it doesn’t work either. There is some weird online agreement that you will not up/download more the x MB per day otherwise you will be charged for Internet use. The owner said that policy was put in place to prevent people from downloading movies, etc. and assured me that I would not be charged for any internet use, and in fact I wasn’t. The regular rooms vary in size with some being quite small and all being dark.

In addition to the fridge, there is a single burner hotplate, a few pots, dishes, and glasses, kitchen sink, bar with stools, a small table with 2 chairs, TV, double bed with no top sheet (if you request one you get a second fitted sheet), a mattress that needs replacing, dim lighting, and AC. The bathroom is large and has a semi-enclosed shower, with decent hot water, including in the bathroom sink. There is ample cupboard space and they provide free clothes washing. Before you get too excited about the latter, use at your own risk as mine came back missing an item - if your laundry comes back with a pair of black silk underwear, they’re mine. Breakfast is not included. The restaurant serves a few Scandinavian dishes in addition to the standard European/N. American and Asian dishes.

Located on Street 136, it is within walking distance of the Royal Palace and is half a block from the river. While not as noisy as on the waterfront, earplugs are recommended if you want to get to sleep before 2am as this end of Street 136 has numerous girlie bars with loud music and the street vendors on the corner keep the noise going after the bars close.
