“I don't understand the good reviews”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

Goldie looks pretty when you arrive. The front desk staff are nice enough and the lobby is lovely but as soon as you get past the lobby the hotel & rooms feels a bit like a prison. Doors have a padlock on the outside which is a bit creepy. We were told to make sure our windows were closed before we went out for fear of theft. Even though there is a kind of sliding glass window in the room it doesn't look at anything and the room felt like a cave. There were many things broken in the room, the toilet seat wasn't attached, handles come off in your hand, the a/c remote didn't work, etc. I wouldn't stay here again or recommend this place. Also, not a great location.

Clean neat simple rooms. Great friendly staff. Good value. Great wifi. Unbeatable location!
Owners were keen to help out. We had the two bedroom, room, with nice balcony on street.
With our two toddlers and it as all good.
We left a valuable item behind and came back a week later and they had it waiting for us at reception.
Staff were all great.

Room Tip: The front room with the balcony was great.

The guest house, is very well situated, in a nice and quiet street, at a walking distane from Palace, if you like to walk and from other main tourist attractions. We were in two rooms, one with window, smaller and the other ones, wihout window, bigger. The only minor incovenient of the first one, was that it did not provide enough place to keep our cloathes (and we travel with very few). But, it was clean, and, very very quiet, which is not a trivial point.

My sister's friend (who's staying in Phnom Penh) booked us a room in this guesthouse. We stayed for 1 night in Room # 6 (no balcony). The room is a little bit small and the lighting is a little bit dark. Except for those two petty things I have no complaints about this guesthouse. It is actually charming. The lobby, the corridor, and the rooms are beautifully styled. It is also cheap. For only $20 the room is already equipped with AC, hot shower, tv, fridge, and decent beds. The location is good and the staffs are always smiling.

It's a little out of the absolute centre, for sure, but near decent restaurants and tourist attractions such as the National museum (and the Genocide one), and everything is a quick ride away via rickshaw. They can get you taxis to the airport, and the restaurant across the road is top class for this country. Well worth it, if nothing too flashy.

I stayed here for a month when I first arrived in Phnom Penh. Rooms at Goldie are very basic but the communal area downstairs is great.

The girls who work here are very friendly and helpful, but the guy is a bit strange (quite self important).

There is definitely no shortage of tuk tuk drivers lingering outside and there's a lot of eating and shopping options nearby.

All in all it's a decent option for longer functional stays or for budget conscious travelers, but it wouldn't be my first choice for a romantic getaway.

My idea of a boutique hotel is one of style; often at the expense of function. The Goldie is very functional; friendly, helpful and cheap. $20 gives you a decent room in a good location in the city. My room was comfy & cozy but hardly stylish; however I'm a frequent visitor to Phnom Penh; stayed in many places here and reckon its as good a budget place as you can get in this city.
