I don't know how long the Sofitel has been in Phnom Penh but the hotel looks like it's brand new. The staff are excellent: friendly and professional without being obsequious. The hotel seems way too big for a city the size of Phnom Penh. If the city were smaller, I'd say it was out of the way, but really, in a city this small, what does it matter that the Sofitel is located a few minutes further from the Grand Palace than most other places. Given the extent of the grounds, the place does feel a bit isolated, and the views from the rooms leave a lot to be desired, but the rooms themselves are very plush and comfy, if a bit bourgeois. The hotel designer must have been Thai, because it has the look of one of those mega-hotels in a Thai provincial capital: you know the kind, that are just too big for the size of the city that they're in. The breakfast buffet, however, is excellent and the variety is lavish but not quite obscene. I prefer some of the smaller, more centrally located hotels in Phnom Penh, but the Sofitel was good for a business conference.
