Ranked #140 of 270 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Reviewed April 17, 2010

We stayed here for four nights and returned again for one night after our trip to Sihanoukville.

We got a room upon arrival - cost US$20 for a double room with AC, fan, hot water, tv with cable and a fridge. There was free WIFI but it was not available in the bedrooms.

The rooms were a really good size with good storage. The bathroom was also a good size and toiletries were provided. The room was cleaned each day.

The hotel was in a great location; it's just around the corner from Friends restaurant; the Museum is literally a one minute walk and the palace is about a two to three minute walk away. There are really good restaurants within a few minutes walk.

The staff were all very friendly and we got a big welcome when we returned for one night after coming back from Sihanoukville. You can book bus tickets and tours with reception. There is a cafe in the lobby too which serves tea, coffee, pastries and pizzas etc.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay here and would definitely stay here again.

Hotel is ok, rooms are small but many have been recently refurbished so they are pretty functional.

Rooms:
- Wall fan
- A/C
- Fridge
- TV
- UK + American plug (220V)
- Electric shower (no curtains, drain at bottom of bathroom, so expect a wet floor all over every time you shower, but it's like this in most places in Cambodia)

Not present:
- In room safe (however lockers are given free and located next to reception)

WiFi uses shared WEP key which is available from reception free. Coverage is only near reception/restaurant and possibly first floor, generally quite bad.
Many rooms appear to have a ethernet plug in the wall connected to switches on each floor (active), however I had no eth cable and could not check if you can get on the internet.

Restaurant is lousy and expensive (like most places in Cambodia), however for breakfast is ok ...

Location is very VERY good (main reason for choosing this place).
Quite expensive at 20USD/night compared to average in the area.

Tuk tuk stationed in front of it all day, peddling all the time (but again, this is all over cambodia).

We loved it so much we went back there again! The owners were so friendly- even lent us their DVD player when I was sick. Very clean rooms, big beds, large bathroom. TV that WORKS.

It's right opposite the Phnom Penh National Museum. And a one minute walk to the river where all the great restaurants are.

Only slight down point is the restaurant downstairs- not the best, but they do sell cheap bottles of water, and with so many other restaurants nearby, it doesn't matter!

Would highly recommend this place. All rooms have aircon, and a twin room starts at $20. PERFECT

Ended up at Noura Motel after discovering our previous hotel had ants in the sheets. We were very happy with the hotel for the price: Spacious and clean room, stain free sheets with no bugs, AC, TV, & hot showers. Unfortunate that breakfast wasn't free but the cafe was pretty cheap. It is a couple blocks from the river and right in front of the royal palace. We were given a lock box in the lobby for passports, etc and never had any problems with theft.

After discovering my room had been opened & burglarized by the staff, I proceeded to warn other guests staying at the Motel. As I was doing this the manager told me that I was a liar & that "if you cause problems for me, I'll make BIG problems for you!"
I told him I would report the happenings to the police & he told me he was "not afraid of them." He was right, I went to the police & the tourist police, & they did nothing.
Overall, the worst experience I've ever had at an accommodation & I will never go back to Phnom Penh.

This guest house offers lockable drawers in each room. However, they failed to mention that housekeeping has keys to these drawers. When we confronted them about the $250 dollars that was missing they said. "we are rich. we don't need your small money." The rooms are ok, but for $20 bucks a night, you can do much better.

Noura was great for the price! Nicely decorated rooms, soft beds, more modern bathrooms than most budget hotels in the area, free wifi and pleasant staff. Noura was close to a the river but a much better deal than the overpriced riverfront hotels. Decent little cafe downstairs, although breakfast isn't included in the price.

The only negative I can think of was that it cigarette smoke would come up through the bathroom vents, but the main room was odor-free when the door was shut.
