we stayed there 2 nights. We had a room with balcony. it was very clean with comfy beds and a great shower. The cafe was clean and the food was tasty. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke very good english. it's away from the noise of the main road but only took 10 mins to walk to the Quay. Definately stay there again.

Room Tip: window less rooms a bit dark

We stayed there only 1 night during our trip to Siem Reap but it was almost the best hotel stay during our trip around Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Thailand, It was a perfect value for money!! Very good choice! Room was basic but very clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The reception and dinning area is simple but very nice. I would surely come back!

The first thing I noticed upon arriving at this hotel was how spacious and well-decorated it was. The design is very minimalist with a bit of modern "smoothness" to it - it's very pleasant to the eyes. The entire hotel is kept in very good shape and looks spotless.

The room itself was the best part about this hotel. I was staying in one of the standard rooms (room 308 to be exact), and my room seemed very spacious with a big bed and a wardrobe. I really want to point out again how clean and nicely decorated the rooms are. The bathroom had a very huge shower head, which made taking showers quite pleasant.

The biggest drawback to this hotel for me was that there is no in-room safe, nor are there any computers in the lobby to access the internet (apparently this is common in Phnom Penh). However, to be fair, you can keep your valuables in a safe at the front desk, and the entire hotel has free Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, I did not have my own computer, so I had to walk to a net cafe about 2 minutes away from the hotel.

I never had any problems with noise in my hotel room. Sometimes you can slightly hear bass from surrounding bars and clubs, but not so much to the point that it would prevent you from sleeping. Also, service at the hotel was great. I never had any problems with any of the staff, and they were always smiling and very welcoming. I should also note that the hotel's lobby also serves as a cafe where you can order drinks and food at a somewhat reasonable price.

As for location, the hotel is located just off of 51st Street, and it literally sits right next to the Walkabout Hotel/Bar. 51st Street is littered with bars and clubs frequented by expats and tourists, so if you're wanting to be within walking distance of plenty of nightlife options, then this is probably where you'll want to be staying during your time in Phnom Penh. For example, the Heart of Darkness, Shanghai Bar, and Pontoon are all about a 1-minute walk from the Blue Tongue Hotel. There are also several convenience stores within a short walk from the hotel.

If you're wanting to walk to the Riverfront, it will take you about 5 to 10 minutes. Also, both the Royal Palace and the National Museum are about a 5-minute walk from the hotel. A tuk-tuk for 2 people from the hotel to the Riverfront will cost 1 or 2 dollars (depending upon your bargaining skills). I almost always paid 6,000 riel ($1.50). A tuk-tuk ride from the hotel to the Riverfront shouldn't take any longer than 3 minutes.

Bottom line: the hotel's facilities are excellent, ultra-clean, and pleasing to the eyes, but I think $34 for one night in a standard room is a little steep for Phnom Penh. The hotel room is worth it's value, but I can't help but feel it's a bit too expensive for the city it's in. If you want to be surrounded by nightlife, then this is the location for you. But if you're wanting to be right next to the Riverfront or in a more family-oriented location, then I would pick a cheaper hotel near or along Sisowath Quay Street.

I have stayed at the Blue Tongue Hotel on my visits to Phnom Penh because of its central location. It is a short walk to the Sorya shopping centre and the central market and the riverfront is just ashort tuk-tuk ride away. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but with clean sheets. Breakfast is a single item which has to be ordered from the menu. We have since learnt to order different items each so that we can share and have variety!
